Aaaaaaannnddd … just like that, here we are coming up on two years of doing this podcast without missing a week. I’m going to be sincere and say that you, the loyal listener, are beginning to feel like family.

You might be wondering how I’ve managed to go so long without missing a week here and there, and I’ll let you in on my secret in the last half of this podcast. But first, let’s talk a bit more about fat loss and how it relates to who you are being versus what specifically you are doing. This little secret has helped me to already reach my fitness goal – to get my body fat percentage down to 10%, and stay there for the summer.

Episode highlights:


- The key to using your own biofeedback to know if you’re on the right path with your diet and nutrition (1:44)
- Why thinking about restrictions and what you’re depriving yourself of is the kill your diet. Here’s how to have structure instead (2:11)
- How to know your if your body is telling you, you need a cheat day versus just the occasional craving (3:21)
- How thinking about the fat in your body being like a sink filled with water helps you see the bigger picture for how to safely and permanently lose fat (3:57)
- Metabolism is so much more than burning tons of calories. Here’s how to train your metabolism for ultimate health (5:59)
- How understanding your body’s set point helps you stay on track with your diet, and why you should never go below it for too long (7:43)
If your hunger feels like this, you know you’re in fatloss mode (9:37)

On commitment and clarity …

Jumping back in to how I’ve been able to do this show week after week without missing any, the two Cs – commitment and clarity – have made all the difference. But when I say commitment, I mean something a little different than most. I’m not telling you to suck it up and just press through because you said you would. Likewise, clarity is a little more nuanced. But understanding these concepts will really help you go the distance no matter what you apply them toward. Check out the show to learn what I mean.

Thanks for tuning in today. I hope what I shared helps you with how to know when you’re on the right track. Please share this episode and leave the show a review on iTunes. And as always, connect with me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

Now get out there and get winning your week! You’re stronger than you know!

Peace,

I always get a kick when I see guys I was competing in bodybuilding with 10 years ago, still up there, doing their thing flexing for trophies. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVED my time competing, but I used that time as a stepping stone – I learned all I could and moved on to a greater purpose. Much of what I learned competing I carried forward to start Newell Strength, and it’s been a big reason for why I am where I am in life. But the biggest reason is that somewhere along the line I decided I wanted to live a life of design … I wanted to live on purpose.

If your like me, you’re probably thinking, “I want to live a life of purpose, too!” Great news! I’m going to talk to you about some vanilla habits to form to make sure living a life of purpose is exactly what you do. Dig in ...

Episode highlights:


- Transformation in life really boils down to these two simple things (3:15)
- Are you journaling? If not, you’re missing out on something extremely powerful – plus, three things you should write down every day … (3:40)
- If you’re counting on “Magic shortcuts” but neglecting this, you’re shooting yourself in the foot (4:58)
- Going through a tough patch? This brain exercise takes no time at all and can help you power through (6:00)
99.5% of actual learning happens from this (7:35)
- The very important difference between responding versus reacting (8:29)
- Why it’s so important for you to stay connected to your “Why” (10:01)

A bit about boredom …

Don’t mistake my use of the term “vanilla” for meaning that I’m telling you to do stuff that’s boring. You know I’ve said countless times that the brain will only form habits around things it finds pleasurable. I’m simply stating that you need to find ways to keep these habits interesting so you don’t jump to the next “big thing” the moment you notice yourself slacking.

Ok, that’s all for today. Thanks for listening and I hope you found this helpful. Please share this episode and leave the show a review on iTunes. Connect with me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

You’re stronger than you know!

Well, here we are … the 100th Unlocking Your Inner Strength episode. Some might call it amazing, but – inline with what we’ll chat about today – this episode is the result of consistency and stacking. I’ll tell you more about why that’s important, especially if you’d like to see results in any area of your life, but before we jump in, I want to thank you all for being such loyal listeners.

Given that we’ve covered so much in these 100 shows, I felt like this would be a good time to talk about emptying your cup, or “unlearning”. It might sound paradoxical, but unlearning is one of the most effective and important things you can do so you’re open to new information. Take a listen to see what I mean ...

Episode highlights:


- The two types of people you meet in life – which one are you? (1:30)
- Most people act out of convenience. To see results in any area of your life you hope to improve, this should be your motivation for acting … (2:00)
- Think your work is fun? It’s not, or rather shouldn’t be. That doesn’t mean you should hate it, but you should get this rather than fun out of your work (4:10)
- Fitness applies to more than just your physical appearance. To be fit means having two critical elements for seeing things through. - - --- -

- Knowing this opens so many locked doors … (4:53)
- The one thing every religion has in common and how it should shape how you engage with the world around you (5:09)
- How to empty your cup so new information can challenge you toward a deeper knowledge and understanding (6:26)
- Review: you should strive for fitness in every area of your “F5” to achieve balance, fulfillment and happiness (10:35)

I’m uncertain about the future …

But I AM certain that I’ll be able to deal with it. No, I’m not going anywhere any time soon, but I wanted to leave you with this little nugget to think about: How well do you deal with uncertainty? And isn’t everything you’re doing to become your best self really centered around better equipping you to prepare for, and navigate uncertainty? Knowing this at a core level will place you miles ahead of so many others who are still searching.

Thanks again for tuning in. I hope you found this helpful. Please share this episode and leave the show a review on iTunes. Connect with me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

You’re stronger than you know!
