Episode 40: From Anorexia to Commonwealth Powerlifting Champ (all on a vegan diet) with Sophia Ellis
What a journey Sophia has had already. From struggling with eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia, being admitted to hospital to finding herself and becoming Commonwealth and European Powerlifting champ, and record holder. This girl is strong! Inside and out. Not only can she lift heavy, but she has also been able to share her story and help others. This is what the podcast is all about. As well as some myth-busting. I would like to try and see someone tell Sophia that you can't grow muscle on a vegan diet, because she is living proof that you can, and then some. We also cover gym confidence and the importance of asking for help. This is the kind of podcast that should get you motivated to resistance train but also to love yourself a little more. I hope you enjoy it!!

Episode 39; A Live Panel Recording w/ Myself, Tori & Sophia
Recently I was lucky enough to be invited to be on a plant-based health and fitness panel with Sophia, a Commonwealth Powerlifting Champ, Tori, a bikini figure competitor and host by Saskia from The Green Grill. We speak about Protein, what we all eat in a day and pretty much anything else the live audience asked us. These questions included things like Iron, soy, more protein and more. This episode is a lot more casual and fun and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! You can find the other panellists at @toriree , @sophiastrenght, @thegreengrill & @saskia_rabbit Link in my instagram bio @the_plantbased_coach to listen on Itunes and Spotify.

Episode 38 - How to Achieve Your 2020 Goals w/ Holly Barber
Holly and I first met at an event in London and we both knew immediately that we were on the same page with nutrition, exercise and veganism (the page that EVERYONE should be one) We decided to do this podcast a little differently, by interviewing each other in a "you go, I go" manner. We alternated between topics that we thought were worthy of a fun discussion and I think created a very entertaining and insightful episode. We cover, - How to do Veganuary Right - Tips on tackling your New Years Resolutions - How to choose a good coach or PT - How to tackle social media's issues - and more.. Have a listen and let us know what you think (there will definitely be a round two)

Episode 37; Womans Hormonal Health & PCOS with Dr Dylan Culter, Phd
Up to 20% of woman have PCOS, that number is staggering! Although I am pretty clued up on PCOS & work with plenty of women that have this diagnoses I thought it would be even better to hear from an expert and give you some guidelines to lessen the symptoms and thrive. Not only that but I think it is important to discuss woman's hormonal health and how this can affect lifestyle outcomes. We discuss PCOS in-depth, the different types and how Dr Dylan would go about treatment. We also speak about: - PCOS & Insulin Resistance - The Contraceptive Pill and Hormonal Health - Endometriosis - Menopause - The Menstrual Cycle Dr Dylan Culter did her PHD on PCOS so she knows her stuff. Have a listen and tell us what you think! You can reach out to her @phruitfuldish on Instagram

Episode 35; Losing Weight On A Plant Based Diet IS Easier; A Scientfic Review w/ Rami Najjar
We've all heard that calories matter, and that for weight loss to occur we need to find a way to be in a calorie deficit. But what if some ways of eating made it easier for this to happen? This exactly what Rami, a PhD candidate pondered. And it was his scientific review article that got my attention when he looked at the other benefits of the plant-based diet that makes it easier for someone to lose weight. These include (1) reduced caloric density, (2) improved gut microbiota symbiosis, (3) increased insulin sensitivity, (4) reduced TMAO, (5) activation of PPARs, and (6) over-expression of mitochondrial uncoupling proteins. Collectively, these factors improve satiety and increase energy expenditure leading to reduced body weight. Don't worry, we go over what all that means in the podcast. Here is a link to his review https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31717463/ once you have had a listen. And don't forget to give him a follow on Instagram @plantbased_climber

Episode 33: Making Plant-Based Babies w/ Dr Gemma Newman
In this insightful episode, Dr Gemma and I discuss a very important topic of how best to bring up your children to be healthy plant-based vegans. Starting with pregnancy, we talk about what things a mother can do to not only have a healthy baby but also a healthy mother throughout the process. Then we cover the birth, breastfeeding and alternative options. Moving onto weening, milk options and more practical parts of a growing child that starts to ask questions and is potentially put in non-vegan situations. Gemma is a wealth of knowledge and is not only a doctor with her own practice but also brings up her own kids plant-based. It is for this reason that I wanted her to deliver her insight on the topic.

Episode 31, RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS REMISSION w/ Clint Paddison
Before listening to Clint speak about this condition I just thought it caused by the joints wearing out. But now, I know it is so much more complex than that - and to treat it , even put it into remission is also a trial and error process. However lucky for you, Clint has done all the hard work for you. And after 10 years of struggling with this condition himself, he has figured out what works for most people to combat this auto-immune disease. We talk about what others are doing and why it may not work long term and whether or not you can actually remove the need for the drugs that are currently taken. Well worth the listen, even if you don't suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis. And of course, if you know someone with this condition please share it with them so we can help them live a more mobile life.

Episode 30; Blue Zones - How to Live Long with Blue Zone Resident Dr. Renae Thomas
I was really excited for this episode. After first hearing about the Blue-zones I knew I wanted to find out more. And who better to learn off than one of the resident doctors involved with one of the Blue Zones, Loma Linda. If you are not familiar with the Blue Zones, these are the longest living populations on the planet. Some of which eat small amounts of meat others that eat no meat or animal products of any kind. I talk to Dr Renae about the differences the diet have on life expectancy as well as other key things the blue zone populations do to have such a long life. Not only do they live long, their quality of life is high too. Dr Renae and I also speak about her upbringing, how to read scientific studies, her time working with Dr Greger as a moderator at nutrtionfacts.org and what else you can do to insure you have a high quality of life. After all, if there is tens of thousands of people living over 100, would you not want to learn how to "copy" them so you can too? Please go check her out @drrenaethomas as she is highly knowledgable, well -spoken, fun and most importantly very passionate about helping people better understand preventive medicine.

Episode 27: Vegan Beauty Masterclass w/ Nicole (@veganbeautygirl)
Something that I never really consider was cosmetics, and how they are or are not tested on animals. As a male, it is pretty easy to avoid products tested on animals, because well I only use 1 or 2. But I'be released that most of my listeners are female, and you ladies love to wear make up, and I'm sure you would love how to find out which products are cruelty free and which are not. This is what this podcast is all about. Nicole and I dive deep into the cosmetic industry here, and in china where practices are less than ideal. We talk about which brands should be avoided and how to know if there are any loop holes being exploited by any of these companies. So if you like make up; I know you do. And if you want it from a cruelty free and usually environmental friendly place then this podcast is your go to animal friendly masterclass. Follow Nicole (@veganbeautygirl) and give this a like if you enjoyed it :)

Episode 25: Vegan For A Month? W/ Ben Coomber
This one is a little different. I talk with @bencoomber about his journey with Veganuary. Ben is a top guy, and a well known authority in the UK fitness and nutrition industry. He is extremely open-minded and wanted to give Veganuary a proper go this year to get a better understanding of conscious eating and living. I chat to him at the end of January to see how he found it. The answer? I think "eye opening" is the best way to describe it. I would say that he has learnt a lot - and although not staying vegan there are things that him and I agree need to change in this world if we are going to live long and healthy lives.

Episode 24; Results! With P.C.O.S w/ Current Client Teresa
Do you have PCOS? If not - I'm sure you know someone that does. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that affects 1 in 10 woman, and to be fair can make weight loss a little more challenging; especially if you have the insulin resistance that can come with it. However, no matter how challenging it might be, with the right help and mindset weight loss can still be achieved. Teresa, the guest on the episodes podcast is testament to that. At the time of publishing this podcast, she is a current client of mine and lost 10kg over the last 3.5 months working together. All I want for you to gain from this episode, is hope, maybe some tips and of course motivation to keep going; because you will get there! Have a listen and let me know what you think Note - the volume is a bit jumpy (sorry!)

Episode 22; Bro Science Based To Plant Based w/ Vegan Chef Mitch from Mitch's Kitchen
Mitch @mitchskitchen and I first met when we were both panelists at a vegan event.

We both wanted vegans to be as healthy as possible, and that was the theme of this podcast. How can we do that? And how can everyone else live a more compassionate life?? Listen in for some amazing insight to what we think the future for vegans that want to be healthy holds!
