Small accomplishments are better than no accomplishments at all. That 5-minute workout you’ll do is still 5 minutes more than just sitting around. Let them add up and you’ll be more accountable towards small goals than looking at the big picture that looks intimidating.
What are the best tips for a healthy diet to lose weight, and how to plan healthy meals for weight loss with Dr. Mike Roussell.
Dr. Mike Roussell knows the nutrition game. On top of being a nutrition expert, Mike is also an author of several books as well as a nutrition adviser for Men’s Health and Shape magazines. He believes in the idea of what he calls the “Psychology of Nutrition” or the mental aspect of eating and dieting. He actually did a research on the eating behaviors of ordinary people, ordinary being people who aren’t really into the whole health and fitness mindset yet. He found out the hardest part of maintaining a diet was not planning or crafting the right nutrition plan rather it was the doing of the nutrition that people find most difficult.
Today, Mike talks about the idea behind the Psychology of Nutrition, the difference between physiological and hedonic hunger, and what food logistics is. He describes the Rate Limiting step of nutrition as well as why he thinks people have a misguided focus on their wellness.
“The psychology of nutrition is an extremely interesting and untapped area of food and nutrition.” Dr. Mike Roussell
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Tracking nutrition in whatever detail you want is fine.
- People are too obsessed with how many calories they eat that they lack sleep and not exercise. This makes counting calories not matter.
- Mike describes the Rate Limiting Step of nutrition by comparing it to when you overeat, but you focus on work to rest ratio when the focus should be on the “overeating” part. People need to focus on what’s limiting them, what’s holding them back.
- People base their decision on food based on level of wholesomeness instead of nutrition.
- A lot of gluten-free foods aren’t really all that much healthier.
- Pay attention to hunger and stop eating in front of a screen. It will make you focus on the food you’re eating and will help you satiate faster.
- Physiological hunger is when the body has a need for calories and nutritional sustenance. Reward driven or Hedonic hunger is when your body doesn’t need any calories, but you eat because it makes you feel better.
- Food logistics is knowing how you get the right meals for you at the right times during the day, every day.
- Good food isn’t just going to magically appear in front of you unless you prepare it first.
- To be successful in nutrition there has to be some gray. There is no “just” in nutrition.
- People need to listen to their body’s signals which we just don’t do as much as we should.
- Pre-planning your meals will make your nutrition more about execution and not figuring out.

How a formerly obese teenager became a fit and healthy man and fitness leader.
In our last episode (click here to listen), Dai Manuel shared a slice of his life as an obese kid with a BMI of 40 at the age of 14. He told us what he did to change his life, the kind of hard work he pursued to become a healthier and fit person, and his advice on the kind of lifestyle people should strive to achieve. He also believes nutrition should make up a bigger part of the school curriculum to help prevent or at least reduce child obesity.
In part 2 of our episode, Dai talks about the difference between knowledge and wisdom when it comes to fitness, his Five Pillars, why he wrote The Whole Life Fitness Manifesto, his opinion on social media, and how you should always hang out with people who strive to be better. And to listen to the latest interview with Dai– on how to design a life you NEVER want to vacation FROM- CLICK HERE.
“I don’t train as hard as I used to but I train smarter than I used to.” Dai Manuel
In this episode, you’ll learn:
Dai absorbed knowledge like a sponge when he was a kid but he ended up quantifying his health too much. Dai now believes it’s all about how you feel, function, and should be focused on quality over quantity.
His book allows the reader to envision their life like a home. The foundation is health and the pillars supporting it are fitness, faith, finances, family, and fun.
He wrote his book because people overcomplicate life and his book teaches people to look at life from a simpler perspective.
Dai believes “Fitness is the extension from which you can directly improve your health.”
When it comes to social media, it’s one thing to show your idea thru your actions and it’s another to simply shout the message.
When it comes to information, the one who shares their idea should be mindful of two things: How to project the information and how people would interpret them.
Social media should be used to lead, not to push.
Dai believes in the idea of mindfulness and says at least five minutes of mindfulness should be done by everyone. Just 30 minutes of mindfulness a day “is an investment that’s gonna pay dividends for a long time.”
People should take time to be present in the now, to pause and think things through. They should learn to respond and not react.
When you hang around with the wrong people, you too will be like them. Likewise, if you hang around with the right people, you too will be like them.
The gym is prepping us for all the hours outside the gym.
