    Some great tips I’m going to pass along to my TOPS weight support group. We have one friend (diabetic and probably around 400 lbs.) who cries about not being able to lose or stick to any plan, yet so many of our good food suggestions she immediately complains “But I don’t like that.” Perhaps if she’ll consider incorporating just 1 or 2 of your tips from this podcast, it will help on her journey.

    Thank you for your show, Shawn. 50 excellent podcasts behind you, and I hope many, many more to come. And congrats on making #1 on itunes!

      From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Beth! And thank you for the idea of sharing the show with your group member. You never know what can be the change-trigger for someone until you try. That’s a big reason that I do the show… to give people a powerful tool to create change in their lives AND the lives of people around them. Much more awesomeness to come!

      Anthea, thank you so much! Messages like this let me know that I’m accomplishing the goal that I set out to have with this show. I will definitely do episodes to let everyone know what I’m up to personally. I’m usually experimenting with something lol. In the mean time, I was pretty detailed in my daily practices and even my mental approach to things in this interview:

      Thanks for the wonderful feedback. And keep it coming!!!

        I really enjoyed the interview, thank you for that! The info about gaining weight was useful as well. A possible future podcast topic maybe, lol 🙂
        As always, thank you for the great information.

    Hey Shawn, love the show. Started listening a couple months ago and am going through older podcast to try and catch up. Just listened to this one and like you in the past, do not like brussel sprouts. So I’m begging you, please share your wife’s recipe so I can add this to my diet. Thank you and keep up the good work.
