Have you been trying to lose weight or have a healthier lifestyle but you just can’t seem to make new habits stick? Help is here! Dr. Anthony Balduzzi joins host Ian Lobas to discuss approaches that will set you up for lasting success on your journey to better health.
Dr. A, as he is affectionately known, is the founder of The Fit Father Project and The Fit Mother Project - the leading health and weight loss programs for busy men and women over 40.
In this episode, he reveals the detrimental patterns that may be preventing you from achieving your wellness goals and he offers practical guidance to turn it all around. He points out that nutrition and sleep are more important than exercise and shares a wealth of information that helps you optimize every meal and consider the benefits of intermittent fasting, as well as the relationship between our circadian rhythms and the time of day we work out.
The strategies he outlines can make all the difference in the world to anyone who does not have a contingency plan for the times when conditions are not perfect and they go off-track.
From details on how to standardize a healthy breakfast to actions that will minimize sugar cravings, Dr. A walks you through simple steps that can lead to incremental, sustainable lifestyle improvements. You’ll be amazed to find you don’t need to rely on willpower alone and the process is easier than you thought.
