Key quotes and takeaways from the show:
Sugar is a drug. It’s highly addictive and extremely difficult to stop consuming.
Eliminate “black holes” from your life (people who suck the energy out of you).
Being at your lowest is the best opportunity to make a positive change in your life. You can only improve from there. Enter the belly of the whale to be reborn.
Change one thing at a time. 1% improvements. Compounding 1% improvements will result in extraordinary growth.
During the Napoleonic War, soldiers used to eat dead horses to cure scurvy because of the vitamin C content in it (red meat in general).
If you look hard enough for evidence (on anything), you will find it.
Don’t make immediate and drastic diet changes without consulting an expert first. Your diet must be tailored to you.
Grit, strong mind, ability to learn.
“Don’t believe what I tell you, go and do your research.” “Scrutinise the science.” If you can question it so many times, from so many different angles and you come to the same conclusion, you’re on the right path. Question everything!
Habits and consistency lead to success and happiness. It’s all about the rule and not the exception.
