Healthy Conversations: volume 1

Last week I had a chat over Skype with Matt Metzgar and Marc Van Dam (of Feel Good Eating).  I suppose you could call it a podcast of sorts, but none of us would want to come across as gurus.  We just discussed a few things together, things in which we are interested and around which we have each pondered over the last few years.

Matt recorded the conversation and we have been trying to work out how to host it on our blogs.  I think I have managed it!  This was the first time each of us had done this and I know we felt like we rambled a bit, but the key thing was that we enjoyed the chat and we are sharing it so that you can listen in too.

(or download the mp3)

We talked through the following topics

1) Strength – 05:44
2) Sleep – 19:10
3) Quick Simple Meals – 24:45
4) Skill/Efficient Movement - 32:12
5) Chronic Cardio – 40:00
6) Posture/Abs - 51:35
7) Stress - 58:50
8) Heart Disease - 1:03:50
9) Good Thoughts - 1:11:00

I hope you find it interesting!

I refer to my interest in hillwalking as described here.

Hey, I can not get it to work. Looking forward to hearing it though! Hopefully you can get it working.

Chris said...

It is also now on YouTube, which should be more reliable

It works great now. Thank you for the post. The good thoughts section sounds like cognitive behavior therapy. I wonder if you or your readers would appreciate this It goes into how to deal with your thoughts and change them. I am also curious about the advice to do nothing at times. It would be opposite of the advice of the researcher Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi who talks about the concept of flow. He states we are at our most happiest when we are in a state of heightened focus and immersion in an activity and the least happiest when we are doing nothing ie watching tv.

Great show, nice to hear some sensible, hype free, practical advice!

Also nice to hear a British (even better Northern) on a podcast too ;-)

@Shawn - I don't think "watching TV" is exactly what was being recommended....

Chris said...

Thanks Simon
