Dr. Grayson is a behavior change communications consultant who teaches about Public Health Communications in the Master of Public Health Program in the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont. 

Her life changed in 2016 when she suddenly realized that she had been concealing a lifelong dependence on sugar and carbs beneath a web of denial (“It’s just a sweet tooth”) and rationalization (“I’ve been good so deserve a treat”). 

After she taught herself to quit, she started helping others do the same by creating the program Breaking Free from Sugar, which has helped over 3,000 people successfully reduce how much sugar they eat. That program is shared in her book “The Sweet Tooth Dilemma”.

In today’s podcast, we discuss all things sugar and what we can do to get it under control to improve our waistline, mood and energy levels.

Here is what we talked about: 

 

  • Processed and refined vs natural sugar – what you need to know 
  • The difference between sugar and food addictions 
  • The porridge to avoid when trying to manage blood sugar levels 
  • The 5 pathways of sugar dependency 
  • Sugar misconceptions 
  • The non-obvious things to avoid
  • And more

Today’s podcast is a solo episode. 

 

As opposed to a recap podcast or even going through what happened in detail (as I sum that up in about 5 minutes) – I talk through some of the mindset elements I struggled with the most: expecting the unexpecting, just because something is difficult doesn’t make it valuable, not forcing things to happen etc

 

Hopefully there is a value here regardless of what stage of life you are in or the difficulties you may be currently going through. 

 

Short written recap: 

As some of you know, I flew out to Kyrgyzstan (beside China) to run 200km over five days up the Tian Shan mountain range. The plan was to hike for three days to acclimatize to the altitude and then run for 5 days up Tian Shan; but unfortunately, after picking up an infection in the capital Bishek, I only made basecamp 1 before I got hit with severe sickness. 

 

Here’s the story about it and what I learnt from the experience.

Paul Scanlon has trained and mentored people for over 30 years as a keynote speaker all over 
the world. After three decades in the not-for-profit sector, Paul has successfully transitioned and 
reinvented himself as an educator through both his LIVE and online Masterclass events in 
Communication, Leadership, and Personal Development. 
Paul’s three strands of focus are: Communication, Leadership, and Human Flourishing. His 
hallmark is making complex things simple. Paul passionately believes it’s more important to 
grow people than things. 
He believes that there’s greatness in everyone and knows that most need the help of a well-
chosen coach or mentor to discover it. 
He is also the host of the podcast Growing Big People with Paul Scanlon. This was a fantastic 
conversation and one I am very grateful for having. Although Paul’s microphone quality isn’t as 
 
 
 
 
high as other podcast guests, the value he speaks more than makes up for it. This was a mini 
therapy session for me so I hope you get as much from it as I did. 
Key Points 
One of the big traps people fall into, especially with the political and cultural climate 
nowadays, is boxing themselves into a certain identity, or what Paul calls “labels”. By 
labeling yourself solely by your sex, race, political affiliation, or religion, you adopt the 
“ghetto mentality” and limit your potential to grow and connect with people around 
you. Avoid imprisoning yourself in an echo chamber and open your mind to all that the 
world offers. 
Social media has normalized our natural human tendencies to focus on the “highlight 
reels” of those we admire. This has created a generation of people who lack “getting-
back-up” skills. Paul encourages us to read stories of great people and pay attention 
more to how they recover from setbacks than to the glitz and glamour of success that 
only comes after endless trials and hardships. 
It’s so hard to let go of beliefs, habits, and behaviours that are no longer serving us 
because 1) we don’t know what to replace it with, and 2) we often learn these things via 
people we respect like our parents, and we fear upsetting that person by changing. It’s 
okay to outgrow people. In fact, almost every new version of you that emerges involves 
leaving someone behind.

Logan is a behavioral scientist turned dating coach, and the author of How To Not Die Alone.

As the Director of Relationship Science at the dating app Hinge, she leads a research team dedicated to helping people find love. After studying psychology at Harvard, she ran Google’s behavioral science team—the Irrational Lab.

Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, TIME. The Washington Post, GQ, Glamour, Vice, and on HBO and the BBC.

Today’s podcast goes deep on all things dating and relationships. It’s a full-circle podcast from meeting someone to breakups and finding the one—we cover it all today. Also, I touch on some of my personal attachment styles and previous dating tendencies; so, today’s episode goes through some new topics not previously explored on the podcast.

Key Points

· Each of the three dating tendencies have to do with unrealistic expectations. The romanticizer has unrealistic expectations of relationships. The maximizer has unrealistic expectations of their partner. The hesitator has unrealistic expectations of themselves. Unrealistic expectations of any kind create huge problems because, even if things are going great, the person is never satisfied with what they have at present.

· Our society has become obsessed with “the spark”: the idea of instant chemistry, that pang of connection; that feeling when you walk into a room and everything else fades and you can only focus on that person. Now, the spark is a wonderful thing; but you should not be selecting your long-term life partner based on it as it’s nothing more than a first impression. Instead, go for the slow burn and get to know the person beyond first impressions.

· Becoming ready for marriage is a matter of the level of your intentionality. You have to exercise the same muscles that you do to strengthen your growth mindset and goal-orientedness and know how you want your future to look. With regard to marriage itself, ask yourself a series of questions, such as whether you see yourself with your

partner in the long run and how you’ve both weathered conflict. Then, ask your partner questions such as how many kids you want to have, the religion you want to raise them on, and how you want to manage your finances.
