For a quick wrap on todays podcast, Simon and I will be discussing: - Simon's Dad's heart attack, and how it started him on his plant-based path years later - outrunning a 'certain fate' of a future cardiac event and how it propelled the motivation to read the research into a plant-based diet - realising we can take control of our health and why a diagnosis is not always the final word - planning for longevity with a plant-based diet, without compromising performance and physical goals - how the transition wasn't all roses and how it requires an understanding of your 'why' - understanding the difference between delayed gratification and instant gratification, and why it's so important - where the best place to get started on your journey may be - Simon on the most shocking studies he has found in his research - understanding the planetary and hunger crisis on a larger scale and finding hope in our power to adapt quickly - questioning vitamin insufficiencies with a plant-predominant diet, with a spotlight on iron and selenium - uncovering the truth about soy and testosterone levels, the production of soy and GMO confusion - coffee, caffeine and anxiety, is decaf still a nutritional powerhouse? - how do we empower and teach our children to care for this planet For many years Simon's voice has served as a very large inspiration for me and was one of the main motivations behind creating my own podcast.
