Today’s episode is a fly on the wall conversation with one of my closest friends, Paul Dermody. We focused initially on nutrition and diet and then went in a different direction about half way through the episode. If you enjoyed any of our previous conversations with a similar show structure, then this is not to be missed.

Here are some of things we talked about in today’s podcast: 

 

·       Turning 31 – the biggest lessons he’s learnt over the past few years 

·       Why self-reflection is one of the most underrated tools when it comes to fat loss 

·       Having difficult conversations and getting over the fear of offending people 

·       Influencers and ego, why do people act like this and how do we navigate it? 

·       To to see your ego in action or what you do on autopilot, watch your next 3 reactions 

·       How to stop making “life on autopilot’ dietary decisions.  

·       Ketofast stealing his clients before and after photos

·       Call out culture, is it good or bad? 

·       And much more.

I don't share too many of my podcast interviews, but this one was exceptionally enjoyable talking on some topics that I haven't previously covered. If you want to hear more of my backstory and how my mindset has evolved over the years, then give this a listen.

I also talk about the link between social media and mental health and how Instagram is like the wizard of oz and the highlight reel vs the reality of the sweaty man behind the curtain.

Tim Spector is Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King's College London. 

He has won several academic awards and published over 700 academic papers, a large proportion of which relate directly to nutrition and the causes of obesity. Since 2011 he has been leading the largest microbiome project in the UK, using genetic sequencing to study the bacteria in the guts of 5,000 twins. He is the lead investigator for BRITISH GUT, the UK's largest open-source science project to understand the microbial diversity of the human gut.

He is a prolific writer with several popular science and diet books, the most recent of which will be the focus of today’s conversation.  That book is called Spoon-Fed: Why Almost Everything We’ve Been Told about Food is Wrong. 

If you’ve never questioned the conventional “wisdom” when it comes to the food choices you make or you just geek out on nutrition and anything to do with the gut (like me), then this is a must listen. 

 Here are some of the things we talked about in today’s podcast: 

  •     Why personalized nutrition is the way forward and the problem with ‘one size fits all’ diets.
  •     The diet myth and if you look after your gut how your gut will look after you.
  •     The most unsupportive myth for people with fat or weight loss goals.
  •     The optimal diet and lifestyle for gut health.
  •     What do look out for when choosing fish, meat and plants to eat. 
  •     Studying identical twins and what that shows us about weight loss and genetics.
  •     Why you can’t out exercise a bad diet and the importance of gut microbes for weight loss.
  •     Breaking down all the major nutritional misconceptions and myths out there.
