Jay (jtm_fit on Instagram) has an incredible story. He became addicted to drugs and alcohol at a very young age and by the time he was twenty, his life had spiralled out of control. After he hit rock bottom in 2005, he got sober and starting working out.  

 

Since then he has gone out to create the functional method training program, has been featured on Muscle and Fitness, Men Fitness and was ranked the number 1 fitness influencer by Men’s Health in 2017. 

 

I’ve been following Jay on Instagram for about a year and a half and his page is still one of my personal favourites. This is a great episode for anyone looking to find your physical limit and pushing past it.  

 

Things we talked about: 

 

  • Going from being a drug addict to 2017 Men’s Health fitness influencer of the year

  • Jay’s daily training, eating, supplements and recovery 

  • Being a skinny kid and not adding any muscle until age 25 (he’s now 33)

  • Building 380k followers on Instagram 

  • Dealing with the negative voice in your head and using your demons as fuel for the fire!

Orla qualified as a Dietitian from Kings College London. She initially obtained an honours degree in Physiology from Trinity College, allowing her to apply her detailed knowledge of the human body to the nutritional management of conditions and diseases. Since then Orla upgraded her BA in Physiology to an MA in Physiology and went on to achieve a Masters in Clinical Nutrition at Roehampton University, London.

She is one of my ‘go to’ people when it comes to the latest research on topics and I love her ability to argues the pros and cons for nearly any dietary approach. If you struggle with weight or fat loss, are on the autoimmune spectrum (thyroid issues, IBS, PCOS) or want to know how alcohol affects your sex drive (for the guys), then this is a must listen.

Dr Rupy Aujla, aka The Doctor’s Kitchen on social media, is a medical doctor specialised in General Practice and is a firm believer in the power of food and lifestyle change as medicine.

He set up his website out of a passion to inspire people about the beauty of food and the medicinal effects of eating well. He creates delicious recipes and brings attention to the clinical research behind the ingredients he uses.

Personally, I love his message -

No Myths. No Fads. Just delicious healthy food.



His amazing first book ‘The Doctors Kitchen’  is full of recipes, lifestyle tips, interesting events to attend and lots of evidence-based information from an open-minded straight-talking doctor. His new book ‘The Doctors Kitchen – Eat to beat illness’ is out in March as is now available for pre-order.


Some of the things we talked about




- How a few changes to his diet and lifestyle stopped Rupy getting a medical procedure in 2012

- How doctors only get 5 hours of nutritional training over 5 years and some of the problems with a ‘medicine only’ approach

- Tips for eating healthily when you live a super busy lifestyle

- The biggest nutrition mistakes he sees with patients

- Why our tribal mentality leads to being strict with certain diets (Vegan, Paleo, Carnivore etc)

I’m the process of writing my third book centred around mindset so I’ve jumped all over the place today. I’ve gone off on a million tangents but I know these episodes normally go down very well as I’m just thinking out loud for most of it. I hope you enjoy it.

My second book about sports nutrition and strength and conditioning for GAA players (titled: GAA: Leaner, Stronger, Faster) will out before Xmas.

Even though these are the three questions, I’ve jumped around with topics such as mental health vs. mental illness; journaling to ease self-induced anxiety and stories from my early bodybuilding days, my fear of running through the desert and my own crippling issues with self-sabotage over the years.

  • As a non-runner, how do you motivate yourself to put in the miles 08:03
  • Did you spend large amounts of time reading about fitness, the body, mindset etc.? You’re very knowledgeable and I wondered how you did it? 28:02
  • I listened to your podcast on how to deal with negative people...before I say anything else- it was amazing!!  However, I have one huge issue- I think I'm that negative person to myself! HELP! 44:42

This was a fly on the wall conversation with one of my best friends on the planet. I hope you enjoy.

 

Some of the things we talked about.

 

  • Asking yourself what are you doing mindlessly? (Hooking up, food, training, work)
  • The difference between being slapped harshly by the truth or being kissed by a lie and the importance of not being a d*ck
  • How to use negative people and their comments as fuel for the fire
  • Asking yourself why certain comments bothered you (the concept of the purple polar bear)
  • Thoughts of fat-shaming on social media
  • Not making decisions in an emotional state and if you don’t deal with a problem when its small enough to be solved, you deserve to deal with the f*ck up that comes from it.

Tom Evans is a 26-year-old ultra-endurance runner and British Army Captain. He is one of the top ultra endurance trail runners in the world with a 3rd place finish at Marathon Des Sables and The Ultra-Trail World Tour in 2017. He has been on a sensational run as of late and had an incredible win and set a course record at the Costa Rica Coastal Challenge in February this year.

 

We talked everything from living as an elite athlete and training protocols to getting started as a runner and how taking the first step is the hardest part. This is a great episode giving you an inside look at the mental strength required to perform at the top level in any sport. Enjoy.
