We've just held our first ever Zestology Live event in London, with a host of impressive interviewees from Zestology podcast. It was wonderful to connect with so many of you! The whole thing was recorded for this week's show too. If you're interested in 

  • Hacking your brain with NLP to achieve more in 2016
  • The scientific link between gratitude and wellbeing
  • What are "good fats" and when should we be eating them?

Press play now for all the fun from the night, and to listen to all the good stuff from our knowledgeable and frankly rather incredible speakers.

Still recovering from an awesome and completely sold out Zestology Live podcast event. Featuring some of the outstanding guests that I've had on the podcast over the last 12 months. You'll be able to listen to it all soon - here's the trailer. And if you were there, thank you so much for coming. (If you missed out this time, why not join the meet up group and you'll find out first about the next one.)

  • Are you overextended and overburdened by life?
  • Are you stressed out, anxious, maybe even panic-stricken about your commitments?
  • If so, you might feel quite liberated by The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k

I’m with Sarah Knight on the podcast Zestology this week. Sarah was almost 30 years old when she began to realise it was possible to stop caring so much, but was nearly 40 before she figured out how to make it happen. Now she’s written a uplifting and enjoyable book about it, and she’s on a mission to make all of us care a little bit less.

That’s me too. I could definitely do with caring a bit less about stuff, and so when I heard about her book we connected on Twitter and set up a fun chat. When you hear what she's got planned for the next stage of her life - inspired by the book - you may well be jel.

In today's show, we cover giving up one's job and starting again, planning more low-maintenance weddings and the country Iceland... she doesn't give a monkeys about that either. (Not sure about this one - I love Iceland! :)

Nevertheless, it is very liberating not caring so much about stuff. I'm interested, which is why I wanted to know more. And how...

I’m with Sarah Knight on the podcast Zestology next time. Sarah was almost 30 years old when she began to realise it was possible to stop caring so much, but was nearly 40 before she figured out how to make it happen. Now she’s written a uplifting and enjoyable book about it which is taking the charts by storm, and she’s on a mission to make all of us care a little bit less.

That's next time, on Zestology

When was the last time you truly got outside your comfort zone or just went on a new adventure? How did you feel during it? (Probably a bit terrified.) And afterwards? (Probably a bit awesome.)

Today's blog and podcast is looks at getting outside your comfort zone. (If you'd like to see a video of me getting outside my comfort zone on a hoverboard, scroll down to the bottom of this blog.)

Derek Loudermilk is a former professional cyclist and scientist turned full-time traveler and adventurer. He hosts one of the top rated self-help podcasts, The Art of Adventure and he's with me today on Zestology. 

On this show.

  • What would life be like if you upped sticks and travelled round the world recording podcasts indefinitely? (Not that I'm jel!)
  • How might you use adventure for creativity, confidence, and storytelling?
  • What is the science behind how to get more charisma?
  • What is a simple tip you can use right now to become more charismatic and effective as a communicator?

Derek and I recorded a double-header podcast over two hours. The first hour I interviewed him for Zestology. The second hour, he interviewed me for his podcast The Art of Adventure. If you want to head straight over and listen to that one then you can click here.

  • ​What small little changes could you make to up your game?
  • What simple lifestyle practices could you use right now to increase your performance levels?
  • How could you find an extra 5% and feel awesome every day?

Today's Zestology guest is a favourite of mine and a fave on the podcast too, Laura Bond. Laura is a health journalist and health coach, and her techniques are cutting edge and fascinating... vitamin C injections, coffee enemas and infrared saunas are par for the course.

Last time we spoke we looked a lot at alternative solutions for better health. This time we look more at the practices you can use to take an already happy and fulfilled life to a new level - finding that extra 5%.

Her book and articles are like a guidebook for anyone who wants to find the edge and take their performance levels up a notch. In addition, she's had a crazy 7 or 8 months since we last met, so there was a lot to catch up on. We walked through Soho and recorded as we walked, ending up sitting on a park bench in Golden Square alongside the pigeons, it was, as always with Laura, a lovely and inspiring day.

Also coming up, we road-test 'hypertonic drinks' (and accidentally spill them on my trousers - sad times.)

Today's podcast is for anyone who's interested in ideas for boosting their energy, vitality and health. Laura's particularly well informed, and her journey since we last spoke is a must listen. Also, 'pets with boobs' make an appearance in today's podcast, and this scary prospect alone should be enough to make you listen.

An outstanding performance coach and endurance athlete featured this week. This podcast is all about connecting with nature, and getting out into the great outdoors, even when it’s very cold, or very hot. (Note if you are currently enduring a Northern Hemisphere winter, this is a good one for you.)

Endurance athlete and performance coach Anna-Marie Watson has an extraordinary love of the great outdoors. She's completed arctic warfare training with the british military, scaled mountains in Nepal, and last year came second female in the Marathon des Sables, ranked as “toughest footrace on earth”. It's basically six days of running across the Sahara Desert. (I know - sounds horrible!)

But what can we learn from her experience, and what does she work on with her clients?

When most of us think about detoxing for the new year, we only think about giving up the alcohol for a few weeks after a exuberant festive season. But there's more to a proper detox than just throwing those extra bottles of booze away. And if you perhaps got involved in too much turkey, mince pies, and festive spirit over Christmas, you'll enjoy today's show.

At the start of the new year, I've got a true detox expert on Zestology Podcast.

Dr. Dan Pompa coaches many from around the world with what are considered unexplainable illnesses back to health. And he does this, by helping you to detox.

He talks about the epidemic of toxicity (nb, this is more than just too many mince pies over Christmas). And also how do we know if we have some kind of toxicity in our system?

It's a New Year special, all based around achieving your goals, setting your goals the right way, and actually getting things done.

Coming up, myself and elite performance coach Dr. Stephen Simpson will answer these questions.

  • Do New Year's Resolutions actually work?
  • What is the best way to write down our 2016 goals?
  • How do we make sure that they actually stick?
  • The secret little behaviours that lead to big wins

To answer those questions, I've got together on Zestology with my very wise friend Dr. Stephen Simpson for a special start-to-2016 podcast, to discuss the perfect approach to goal setting. You may remember him wearing a very unusual meditation headset as we recorded Zestology episode 19 way back last spring.

It's been almost a year since I started Zestology: The Podcast. It's been an amazing and fun journey. Here's my a special end of year show bringing together my favourite guests this year. Hey, if Eastenders can have a Christmas special, then so can Zestology.

As you know, I ask every guest at the end of the show for the one tip they'd give us all for more energy, vitality and motivation. The answer is always revealing. And I've brought the best ones all into one place in today's Christmas special. 

So enjoy, and see you for more in 2016.

How do you live with optimism? How do you define positive energy? What does 'living with ease' really mean.

Today's podcast is one of the more emotional I've recorded. Bruce Van Horn has had plenty of ups, and some plunging downs over his life, and his story is shocking and uplifting.

Bruce is a motivational life coach, entrepreneur, and author of the book Worry No More!  He’s cultivated a 4-step plan for his readers to stop worrying and start living with ease because, as he says, "life’s marathon, not a sprint".

He has 400,000 followers on Twitter, and he's one of the most retweeted people on the planet. Listen on for an emotional chat with one of America's top life coaches.

A doctor that sings to his patients. I know - it sounds utterly crazy doesn't it. I must admit I was super sceptical before I interviewed Dr. Steven Eisenberg, and now I confess I'm won over by his sheer energy and enthusiasm for looking after his patients physical and emotional wellbeing.

But you can make your own mind up. Just make sure you listen, as he's a true healer, and he's certainly not conventional. He's won awards for the way he looks after his patients.

How good would it be to have a doctor that looked after your emotional as well as your physical needs?

Dr. Steven Eisenberg is a board certified oncologist who is certified in Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology and Hematology, and is most known for his love of writing songs for people living with cancer through The Lyrical Life Foundation.  He was just nominated for Best Bedside Manner for Medical Specialties in the Tri-city Medical Center, Academy Awards and for good reason. He also has tens of thousands of followers on social media and now has his own TV show starting soon.

I was totally sceptical before interviewing this guest, and yet... what an infectious energy, and great personality he has. You have to listen to Dr. Steven Eisenberg to make your own mind up.

  • Learn how to tame the voice in your head
  • Reduce stress without losing your edge
  • Find self-help that actually works.

I was having a coffee with my mate James a couple of months ago and he recommended me a book called 10% Happier. "I haven't read it yet, so I can't vouch for it", he said, "but someone told me it's good".

Hmmm, not exactly the most enthusiastic of endorsements, but for some reason I decided to go and buy the book anyway. A couple of months on, I'm blown away by how good it is, and how inspiring it was for me personally. The story starts with American ABC Good Morning America presenter Dan Harris having a traumatic breakdown, live on air. This experience leads him down the path of trying to find answers, which he eventually does with meditation, the thing that makes him '10% happier'.

I messaged Dan straight after I finished the book, and I'm so pleased he's come on Zestology. He's got a great story, and this is undoubtedly one of my all-time favourite Zestology podcasts.

If you're a meditation sceptic (or skeptic), listen on. If you are a convert, definitely listen on, as this will provide more answers and some inspiration towards developing your meditative mojo.

  • What meat should you eat?
  • What plants should you have on your plate?
  • When should you take probiotics?
  • What effect are antibiotics having on our general health worldwide?

Les Dethlefsen is a gut microbiota scientist, and a bit of a genius. He leads studies in Microbiology at Relman labs at Stanford University in California on the dynamics of the human microbiota. He has a Ph.D. in both Microbiology and Ecology/Evolutionary Biology from Michigan State.

In this podcast, we talk gut bacteria and how they affect our health, our lifestyle, our physiology, and our minds. That’s the big realisation going on at the moment from both gut experts and neurologists, and why I wanted to have Les Dethlefsen on.

What if there were natural plants and herbs which would help you have more energy, sleep better, feel more alive, get more relaxed when you need it and sleep better?

Today on Zestology podcast, I continue my LA adventure by hanging out with Shannon Drake, an inspiring entrepreneur who runs two health companies and has so much to offer for those seeking alternative health and wellbeing solutions. Be warned, once you've listened you may well be changing a few things in your life, such as the toothpaste you use.

As you can see, we hung out on the roof of the Ace Hotel in Downtown L.A. Spectacular spot.

As well as focusing on legal herbs (or 'erbs as Shannon and all Americans call them!), our chat is wide-ranging, and amongst other things covers the joys and delights of Burning Man festival.

Listen on now for the podcast, and I'd love to know what you think, so leave a comment on iTunes on what you think of Shannon's plants and herb recommendations and the ones you might take?
