Chris Brogan (pictured above after going from a fat keyboard slob to conquering SEALFit workouts) is author of the book “Just Start Here: Lose Weight, Get Stronger and FINALLY Succeed at Your Goals.“.

But nonetheless, I read his book.
And it is actually quite good.

-Why you need a story that defines you if you want to truly master fitness and diet…
-Why willpower is stupid…
-Why Chris puts so many pictures of himself on Instagram…
-How losing weight should be an “hourly” experience…
-Chris's potent “time quilting” strategy for enhancing fat loss…
-And much more!

It was great to hear Chris on the podcast. I think the most I knew about you before was seeing you on Ustream a while back, and various mentions from podcasters of course. I have followed a similar path, with a much longer trajectory over the past 10 years. After I turned 40, I started to address the weight I gained in my 30s. I spent time on the treadmill, then did Pilates videos, Jillian Michaels workouts, P90X, etc. and eventually… Here I am, doing SEALFIT workouts right along with you. (Ben's first interview with Mark Divine was my inspiration.) Thanks for getting the message of fitness out to a community that is very successful in other areas of life. I would love to see them improve their health and fitness, for the benefit of all the lives affected.
Great Podcast as usual! One of my biggest takeaways was the "this is not what a warrior eats" mentality.
The whole concept is kind of like the saying "what's in the well comes up in the bucket", but since it's on a smaller scale, it can help you get those small wins (Peanut butter cups v. Brazil nuts)
My 4.5 year old son is turning into a mirror image of myself, so I've identified myself as a Role Model. Thinking "this is not what a Role Model eats/does" has really inspired me the last couple days!
I enjoyed this podcast, it was great and I'll recommend your book to a few friends of mine (I'll add it to my list, but I've got a backlog of reading material). Chris I enjoyed your thoughts on "This is not what a warrior eats" bit… I do that too however I just say "I don't eat those things" (same thing, I just don't use the warrior imagery).
I'm not a fan of the gym selfies, I understand your point as accountability and facetime… but my coach monitors my progress there and I'm not particularly pro-selfie (a few well put ones here or there, yes).
Regardless, great job on the podcast – this was one of my favs (and more practical ones). While I don't succeed at it as much as I'd like, I do hourly exercises (jumping jacks usually) or run the steps at work.
Awesome podcast. Chris is a great guy. I think this is what you're thinking of re: not talking about your goals before you complete them. http://www.ted.com/talks/derek_sivers_keep_your_g…

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed the conversation. :)
