Today’s podcast is a Solo Q+A answering questions sent in from the question box on my Instagram page.  
 
Key Points 
If you think about a pyramid of prioritization when it comes to weight loss, caloric intake is the bottom of the pyramid, because for 99% of people, the name of the game is calories in versus calories out. Building upon that is your macro split, which will determine how you feel and, to an extent, how you look. Broadly, carbohydrates give you energy, protein repairs your muscles if you’re working out, and fat balances your hormone levels. 
Tailor your caloric intake and macro split to your specific fitness goals, as well as to your particular lifestyle and to how your body and mind respond to different types of food. Just one example Brian gives is to avoid eating carbs at night if you’ve already hit your calorie limit for the day, but  you may do so if carbs happen to help you sleep better—just eat fewer calories 
the next day. High carb/low fat or low carb/high fat—pick the split that works for you. 
To avoid disordered eating behaviours, discover your unsupportive beliefs about food. For 
instance, there is no such thing as “good” and “bad” foods; just foods with different calorie and 
nutrient values that you eat according to your health and fitness goals. For folks in the U.K., it 
will also help to dispense with the common “clear your plate” maxim that most people are 
taught as a child. Unlearn whatever you need to, and take emotion out of eating.

This Episode first aired on 25th January 2021.  
Are you enjoying the podcast? Please leave a rating and a review.  
Chris is the host of the Modern Wisdom podcast, owns an events company in the UK and is a life coach who specialises in helping people to get more out of life. 
His platforms talk about how to live a good life, finding your purpose, maximising human 
performance, productivity, fitness and psychology. 
His passion lies in learning about himself and the world around him. Today’s episode was a very 
enjoyable conversation that focuses heavy on the mindset side of things. 
Key Points 
Finding your purpose, quite obviously, is not an overnight process. Many find it elusive and 
don’t even know where to start. Chris gives us the very first step in uncovering your purpose, 
and that’s by asking yourself: “Do I look forward to getting out of bed every morning?” If not, 
you’re probably heading in the wrong direction. Seek out other voices, whether in 
podcast/video form (i.e. Jordan Peterson) or face-to-face support. Once you can easily answer 
the question, “What do I want to want?” (writing down your ideal life is an excellent practice), 
you’re on your way. 
When it comes to choosing your circle of friends, given the choice between honesty and 
acceptability, you need to choose honesty. As social creatures, we naturally desire to be 
accepted in our group, even if we have to put on a persona—or at least restrict what we say or 
who we are—just to maintain our place in the circle. As quickly as possible, find a way to cut out 
those “friends” that make your life actively worse and find new ones with whom you can truly 
be yourself so that you get empowered to become the person you really desire to be. 
Don’t focus solely on the goals you want to achieve because most people will burn out or lose 
interest along the way, especially if it’s a long-term goal. Instead, set a goal and define it well, 
then immediately put your energy into the day-to-day, week-to-week process that will get you 
to that goal. “Your outcomes in life,” says Chris, “are a lagging measure of your daily habits.” 
This applies to every aspect of life, from fitness to finances to education. Detach your sense of 
being from the achievement of the goal and find fulfilment in the journey.

This has been coming into my space a lot recently, and its outside the scope of this podcast; so instead I have a created a short cheat sheet (a free guide) for anyone who is working as a teacher but wants to pursue their passion into fitness. 

It's just some lessons I learnt along the way that should be helpful.

There is no course or program or anything off the back of this, I just wanted to create a short resource that might help. 

Feel free to pass it onto any family members or friends who might find it useful.
