#98 Why We Need To Fix Our Food System with Mark Hyman

Is it possible to create a food system that promotes health, not disease? One that regenerates ecosystems, reverses climate change and ensures no one, least of all the poorest in society, is endangered?

My guest on this week?s podcast believes it is. He is functional medicine doctor and New York Times bestselling author, Dr Mark Hyman. Mark and I talk about everything from how processed food is addictive by design, to the powerful role good nutrition, from real food, could have in hospitals, schools and prisons. We discuss why soil depletion from intensive farming is one of the biggest drivers of climate change ? and why that vegan burger may not be the environmentally friendly option.

Despite the serious subject matter of this conversation, I?m sure you?ll come away feeling hopeful. Mark doesn?t simply highlight the problems we?re facing. He identifies the ?fix?, providing practical, positive solutions. It?s a call to action that we can all do our bit to answer.

#97 How Exercise Changes Your Brain and Reduces Your Risk of Depression with Brendon Stubbs

Think of a physiotherapist and you probably think of someone who?s interested in muscles and joints; someone who gets you moving again after an injury, right? Well my guest this week is a physio with a difference. He?s concerned with the effect movement has, not on our bodies? but our minds. 

Brendon Stubbs is head of physiotherapy at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, a clinical lecturer and a prolific researcher. His work is helping provide the medical profession with much-needed evidence for what we, as humans, feel instinctively: physical activity makes us feel good. For instance, did you know moderate exercisers are 30 per cent less likely to suffer a depressive episode? Or that being sedentary can actually cause depression? Finally, we have proof that exercise is as effective as many existing interventions for preventing and treating mental health conditions. And I would argue it goes one step further, by also boosting physical health and social connections.

Whether you or someone you know is struggling with mental illness, you?re a healthcare professional, or you simply want to increase your emotional resilience, I think you?ll be persuaded into action by the surprising stories and evidence Brendon shares. And if you?re persuaded, please spread the word ? let?s start a movement revolution.

#96 How This Sporting Event Could Change Your Life with Michael Lemmel

Can a sporting event really change the world? It might sound crazy, but with the right ingredients, I think it can.

My guest on this week?s podcast is Michael Lemmel, co-founder of Swimrun, a sporting experience that?s taken the world by storm. What began as a drunken bet between friends, to swim and run between islands off Sweden, evolved into an organised endurance event and now an eco-conscious, global phenomenon, attracting people of all ages and abilities.

You run in your wetsuit, swim in your shoes and complete a series of short swims and trail runs, all with a partner. I did my first Swimrun in Devon last summer, and myself and my nine-year-old son are now total converts. Michael and I chatted just before our third event, in Malta, and I was keen to find out why he thinks it?s such a transformative experience.

But this week?s episode is definitely not just for outdoor sports enthusiasts ? it?s about the power of nature, the joy of coming together with others. It?s about stepping outside of your comfort zone, becoming a better person ? and, yes, making the world a better place.

#95 Why You Need More Rest with Claudia Hammond

Warning: some people might find this podcast seriously restful.

If that sounds appealing, it should do, because rest is something we all need to prioritise. So says this week?s guest, Claudia Hammond, who argues that being busy isn?t a badge of honour ? and taking time out is definitely not lazy. We examine the science behind our struggles to relax and she shares some brilliant insights on our attitudes to downtime, the top 10 activities most likely to help us switch off, and what the benefits are for our health, wellbeing and productivity.

If you need a reminder of why rest is so important ? and permission to do it, without feeling guilty ? this is it. So put your feet up (or head out for a walk, if you find that more restful), and listen in.

#94 Is Everything You Know About Depression Wrong? With Johann Hari

RE-RELEASE: This episode originally aired last year as a two-part episode.

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing and themes of an adult nature.

For the past few decades, almost every year, levels of depression and anxiety have increased in Britain and across the Western world. But why? One of the most important voices in this area, Johann Hari, went on a forty-thousand-mile journey across the world to interview the leading experts about what causes depression and anxiety, and what solves them. He shares the fascinating findings of his research in this week?s podcast. Johann explains that although we have been told a story that drugs are the solution to depression and anxiety, in many cases, the cause is not in our biology but in the way we live.

Johann argues that being depressed or anxious does not mean that you are crazy, weak or broken, rather, that your natural psychological needs are not being met. And it?s hardly surprising ? we are the loneliest society there has ever been. We discuss how loneliness affects us, how social prescribing can transform lives, the role trauma plays and how shame is both physically and emotionally destructive. Johann believes that societal values have been corrupted and explains the effect that this is having on our health. We talk about the role of the workplace and how having autonomy and choices can reduce the likelihood of depression and anxiety. Johann goes on to share the incredible heart-warming story of the people from Berlin district called Kotti ? a story of how an unlikely community was borne out of desperation and the unbelievable transformations that occurred for the whole community as a result of it. Finally, Johann shares some truly inspirational top tips. This really is a captivating and incredibly important conversation ? I hope you enjoy it!

#93 Rich Roll on Conversation, Connection and How To Cope In a Toxic World

My guest on this week?s podcast is plant-powered wellness advocate, best-selling author and podcast host, Rich Roll. You may remember Rich from episode 28, when he talked about his transformation from overweight alcoholic to vegan ultra-endurance athlete, and the importance of finding purpose in life. Rich is the first of my guests to feature on Feel Better Live More for a second time and that?s because, when I met him back in autumn 2018, I felt a deep connection and I knew our conversation wasn?t finished.

We cover so much ground in this chat, from learning how to say no, to avoiding the toxic nutrition wars on Twitter and why it?s OK not to watch the News. Rich recounts his journey of sobriety and reveals why ?alcoholic? is one label he?ll never give up. We talk about addiction as a broad spectrum of disease that even includes our dependence on technology. Finally, we discuss how best to cope with the divided state of the world, how vital it is to open up to new perspectives, and why long-form conversations ? like this very podcast ? might just be the antidote we need in our distracted, modern world.  

I think you can hear how much I enjoyed catching up with Rich again and I know there will be many topics that resonate with you. I hope you find it as inspiring as I did.

#92 How To Make Lifestyle Changes That Will Last with Dr Rangan Chatterjee and Dr Ayan Panja

Why is it that so many of us find it hard to stick to a new diet or lifestyle plan? We all start off well enough ? full of energy and optimism but then the novelty soon wears off and life gets in the way. After some time, we are right back where we first started. The fact is, most health plans are based on the common, but incorrect assumption that we can make sweeping and lasting changes to our health by relying solely on willpower and motivation. But for the vast majority of us, this is just not true. This is exactly why I wrote my new book, ?Feel Better in 5?? I want to empower people to make changes in their life not just in the short term, but ones that will stand the test of time.

This week, my good friend Dr Ayan Panja returns to my Feel Better, Live More podcast and puts me in the hot seat. We talk about how 5 minute chunks of time really can change your life, the importance of human connection when trying to make lifestyle change, why I am such a fan of a rounded approach to health and the ripple effect ? how one small change in one aspect of your life can very quickly ripple into other areas. We also discuss what, in our collective 40 years of clinical experience, we have found to actually work with our patients when making lifestyle change. We delve into the latest in behaviour science and how we can use this to help us make new healthy habits. Finally, I explain to Ayan that my goal in writing ?Feel Better in 5? was to make health as accessible as possible to people of all backgrounds hence the reason nearly all the recommendations within it are completely free. Ayan finishes by sharing some of his tops tips. I really enjoyed taking some time out to sit down and chat with one of my best friends ? I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did!

#91 If This Man Can Turn His Life Around, So Can You with John McAvoy

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing.

Is there a change you?d like to make in your life? Something you?re desperate to overcome, but can?t see how? Or a goal you?re scared to aim for, because it feels too far off? My guest on this week?s podcast might just convince you to have a go. He?s John McAvoy, endurance athlete extraordinaire, author and the man with one of the most inspirational stories I have ever heard. John was born into a notorious crime family and has served a total of 10 years in some of the UK?s highest security prisons, for armed robbery. He was raised into a life of organised crime and, as a teenager, it was the only career path he could see for himself. In fact, he bought his first gun at the age of 16 and very quickly became one of the UK?s most wanted men. How did he go from serving two life sentences to breaking British and World sporting records and giving talks to schoolchildren? From violent criminal to opinion leader, invited to 10 Downing Street for his views on the justice system? You?ll have to listen and find out. Not only is every part of John?s story worthy of a Hollywood movie script, the lessons and life advice he shares are relevant to each and every one of us. Whether you?re interested in his rowing and Ironman success, how he transformed his moral code or how he overcame adversity, this really is a compelling conversation. I know you?re going to be as gripped by John as I was.

#90 Is There Anything Better Than Movement For Transforming The Way That You Feel: Best of 2019

Over the past 2 years, I have had the privilege of talking with some of the most influential and insightful voices in the health and wellbeing space. To celebrate, I have released 3 very special compilation episodes at the end of 2019, which happens to also be the end of the decade! In my new book, Feel Better in 5, I split up health into 3 main areas: Mind, Body and Heart. I covered ?Mind? and ?Heart? in the past 2 episodes of the podcast and in today?s show, the theme is ?Body? - we all know that moving our body each day is crucial for our health and our wellbeing - it give us more energy, better creativity, improves our sleep quality and so much more.

In today?s episode, you are going to hear some of the best clips on this topic from my podcast. You will hear from the inspirational radio presenter, Vassos Alexander, on just how unfit he was a few years ago, why he started to exercise and how he has quickly become a really experienced and accomplished runner, the medical doctor, Mithu Storoni, who shares how regularly moving throughout the day helps you to buffer the effects of stress, the neuroscientist, Shane O?Mara, who explains how sitting around all day is exhausting and how movement actually energises us, and how walking can reverse aging in the brain. Then you will hear a clip from one of my most enjoyable conversations so far, with the filmmaker, Sanjay Rawal, who shares how we can approach running and, in fact, all movement, in a completely different way and use it as a pathway to transformation. I then share clips from the science journalist and author, Linda Geddes, on how going out for a walk every lunchtime helps you to strengthen your own circadian rhythm and helps you be more alert, Tony Riddle who shares his view on why humans are currently living in conflict with their evolutionary heritage and why he made the decision to remove all of the chairs from his house and finally, the inspirational, Ross Edgeley, who explains why the most important component for any movement practice is adherence - and why choosing a movement that you ENJOY is so important in terms of sticking to it in the long term. 

I hope you will find this an inspirational episode as we move from one decade, into a brand new one. Enjoy!

There are a wide variety of 5 minute movements in my brand new book Feel Better in 5 - 5 minute bodyweight strength training workouts that require no equipment, 5 minute yoga flows, 5 minute HIIT workouts, 5 minute playful ones and so much more.

#89 Why Connection Is The Most Important Aspect Of Health: Best Of 2019

Over the past 2 years, I have had the privilege of talking with some of the most influential and insightful voices in the health and wellbeing space. To celebrate, I have decided to release 3 very special compilation episodes at the end of the year, which also happens to be the end of the decade! In my new book, Feel Better in 5, I split up health into 3 main areas: Mind, Body and Heart. The 'Heart' section is all about nurturing your essential human connections. This is such a crucial, but undervalued, component of health. People who are lonely are 50% more likely to die earlier and 30% more likely to suffer from a heart attack or stroke. The feeling of social isolation is through to be as harmful for your health as smoking 15 cigarettes per day.

In today?s show, I share some of the best clips from my podcast about the importance and power of meaningful human connection. You will hear from Dhru Purohit on why we need deep meaningful friendships to thrive, and not just survive, the hypnotherapist, Chloe Brotheridge, on why being kind to yourself is so important and why life feels perfect once we accept the way that things are, the outspoken Nagoski Sisters, who discuss how to complete the stress response cycle, no matter what the stressor is in your life is and why a 20 second hug can be so beneficial. You will then hear from Peter Crone - without question, my conversation with Peter has proven to be one of the most popular and impactful episodes I have ever released on my show - I share a clip where Peter talks about how you cannot create the life of someone else you don?t believe yourself to be and how true happiness is the absence of the search for happiness. We then hear from the physician, Gabor Mate, who talks about social isolation and how addiction is a behaviour that we use to soothe our pain, and then finish off with the wonderful Johann Hari on the primal importance of human connection and why he defines home as being the place where somebody notices when you are not there. 

I really enjoyed putting this episode together and I hope you enjoy listening, as much! There are plenty of 5 minute tips on how to nurture those essential human connections in my brand new book, Feel Better in 5. You can order your very own copy now - Feel better in 5; Your Daily Plan to Feel Better for Life.

#88 The Very Best Tips to Look After Your Mental Health: Best of 2019

Over the past 2 years, I have had the privilege of talking with some of the most interesting and insightful voices in health. To celebrate, I am releasing 3 very special episodes at the end of the year which also happens to be the end of the decade! In my new book ?Feel Better in 5? I split up health into 3 broad categories: Mind, Body and Heart. The first section ?Mind? is all about doing little things each day that will look after your mental health, something that has never been more important than it is today. Our minds are simply not designed for the modern world. The incredible pace of human civilisation has far exceeded our brain?s ability to cope. This is one of the reasons that many of us struggle with anxiety, depression, fatigue and a lack of purpose. In today?s show, I share with you some of the very best clips from previous episodes relating to the topic of our minds. I hope that it will serve as a ?greatest hits? of practical tips that you can use each day to look after your minds to feel happier and calmer - simple things that we can all do in our busy lives.

You will hear clips from Natasha Devon on what ?mental fitness? is and how to ring fence time for it each day, the neurosurgeon, Rahul Jandial, about the effect meditative breathing has on changing your brain waves, the neuroscientist and medical doctor, Tara Swart, on the power of your thoughts and how effective journaling can be, Professor Felice Jacka on the very latest research on how our diet can impact our mood and alleviate some cases of depression and we finish off with the inspirational Matt Haig who shares his amazing and insightful wisdom. If you are a fan of my podcast, I really think you are going to love this very special episode. Sit back, strap yourself in?and enjoy!

There are plenty more 5 minute tips for your Mind in my brand new book, Feel Better in 5, which is available to order now - Feel better in 5; Your Daily Plan to Feel Better for Life.

#87 What Chronic Illness Taught Me with Nicola Singleton

This week?s podcast is a first for me ? my guest is a former patient of mine, Nicola Singleton. I met Nicola back in September 2016 on the second series of my BBC1 TV documentary, Doctor In The House. Since then, she has completely transformed her health and I?m so pleased she?s agreed to share that story with you. 

Nicola was, in her own words, ?aged 38 but feeling 98?. She had a list of 10 different health diagnoses and was taking 20 different pills a day. Her main issues were feeling crippled with the exhaustion of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) along with the debilitating, widespread pain of fibromyalgia ? both complex and misunderstood conditions from which she?d been told there was no hope of recovery. She couldn?t work, couldn?t play with her kids, could barely get out of bed. Nicola also suffered from anxiety, depression, IBS and more.

She was so desperate to feel better and start living again that she allowed me, and a BBC television crew, to practically move in with her, her husband and three young children for six weeks. In this podcast, we revisit what happened and how, by removing the illness labels and focusing on creating health, rather than treating disease, Nicola was pain free by the end of those six weeks. 

Even more enlightening though, is our chat about everything that Nicola has achieved since then, without me. I know you?re going to find it fascinating, whether you saw the TV show or not. Nicola is a remarkable woman and her story a truly inspirational one.

#86 How to Achieve Anything You Want in Life with Marie Forleo

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing.

What?s holding you back in life at the moment? Is there a problem ? be it practical or emotional, to do with your health, relationships, work, finance or anything else ? that seems insurmountable? Whatever your struggle, my guest on this week?s Feel Better Live More podcast believes that the solution is already within you ? that you have what it takes to transform or transcend any challenge you face.

 

She?s Marie Forleo, a US entrepreneur, writer, philanthropist and, above all, an unshakeable optimist. I caught up with Marie on the London leg of a promotional tour for her new self-help book, Everything Is Figureoutable. The title is quite a promise but after listening to what she has to say, I think you?ll be inspired to think the same way.

 

We discuss perfectionism and why comparing ourselves unfavourably to others ? so common in this age of social media ? can really threaten our creativity. We also discuss the truth about excuses, the liberating difference between ?can?t? and ?won?t?, and why a growth mindset is preferable to a fixed mindset if we want to make changes in our lives. Whatever it is that you want from life, I think Marie?s strategies will shift you into a more positive mindset and help you take action. This is a really energising and inspiring conversation ? I hope you enjoy it!

#85 Is it Time for a Tactical Break from Alcohol? With Andy Ramage

How does alcohol fit into your life? Have you ever given it any thought?

 

My guest on this week?s podcast is Andy Ramage, a performance coach and author. He?s also one of the founders of One Year No Beer, a habit-changing programme that invites people to try 28, 90 or 365 days alcohol free ? and see what it does for them. Andy was like many of us, he was not an alcoholic but he was what he calls ?a middle lane drinker?. He would drink a little bit to unwind, at work events, when he saw his friends and probably a little bit more on the weekends. Andy started off on a 30 day trial without alcohol and now hasn?t drunk any alcohol for six years and says he can?t envisage doing so again. But his agenda is not to make you stop drinking for good. It?s to demonstrate that taking a break from the booze can bring a surprising host of benefits, even if you don?t think of yourself as a problematic drinker.

 

Andy and I delve into just what some of those benefits might be. We discuss how alcohol is so ingrained in our social lives and often our work culture that often we don?t even consider what life would be like without it. It?s linked to every part of our lives from relaxation and fun to social bonding or even just relieving boredom. We talk about societal expectations and peer pressure and both of us share our own individual stories and our own journeys with alcohol. Finally, Andy shares some brilliant, practical tips to help anyone who maybe considering tactical break from alcohol.

 

This is a really inspiring conversation. Whether you?re already thinking of cutting down, it?s not something you?ve considered, or even if you?re already abstaining, I hope you?ll find some life-enhancing lessons in this podcast.

#84 Why Walking Is The Superpower You Didn?t Know You Had with Professor Shane O?Mara

When was the last time you gave any real thought to walking? It?s so easy to put one foot in front of the other. Yet this unique, underrated activity sets us apart from other species, and brings incredible advantages ? yes, superpowers ? if we do it enough.

My guest on this week?s podcast is the neuroscientist Shane O?Mara, a professor of experimental brain research at Trinity College Dublin. After reading his remarkable new book, In Praise of Walking: The New Science of How We Walk And Why It?s Good For Us, I couldn?t wait to talk to him about the topics it raises. Shane has always been a keen walker and aims to clock 15,000 to 17,000 steps each day on his pedometer. But as we discuss, the positive effects of walking go way beyond the fitness benefits we all know about.

Walking helps more than our hearts and lungs, our muscles and posture, yet modern, sedentary lives mean we?re doing far less of it than nature intended. It can increase creativity and problem solving, lift our mood and protect us from depression. Shane reveals how it helps learning, memory and cognition and how it can slow and even reverse the functional ageing of the brain. All this science, he hopes, will help convince town planners and public health officials that we must redesign our environments with pedestrians in mind.

This is such an enlightening conversation and I know you?ll gain some fascinating new perspectives on how you could (and why you should) fit more walking into your life. Why not head out for a stroll as you listen?

#83 Dr Rangan Chatterjee LIVE at The Scottish Parliament with Annie Wells MSP

This week, the microphones are turned and it?s me in the hot seat. This conversation was recorded at The Festival of Politics 2019 on World Mental Health Day in The Scottish Parliament with Deputy Convener of the Cross-Party Group on Mental Health, Annie Wells MSP. I was invited to speak about my mission to inspire people to make small sustainable changes to their lifestyles, which as many of you know, I believe is the secret to having a healthier and happier life. We discuss how my own experience as a carer shaped the way I practice medicine and I talk about my passionate belief that everybody should have access to good quality health information. We also delve into a wide variety of different topics from breathing and sleep to this podcast and how it has grown so rapidly. Finally, the floor is opened up to the attendees of the event and I answer their questions ? including being put on the spot at the very end as to what my top tips would be for reforming the NHS. I hope you enjoy this conversation.

#82 How to Create the Life You Were Born to Live with Peter Crone

What is preventing you from living the life of your dreams? Are you waiting for the right person to come along? Will you be happy when you get a pay-rise? Or perhaps you just aren?t capable of getting what you really want? The truth is, that your perfect life is right here waiting for you to discover it. The only thing separating you from it is the dialogue that exists within your subconscious mind. Guest on this week?s podcast is writer, speaker and thought leader in human potential, Peter Crone, a.k.a The Mind Architect. Peter believes that resistance to the way life is, is not only futile, but it is the pre-curser to dis-ease both psychologically and emotionally, which can then manifest physiologically. He believes that to attain true freedom and joy, we need to release ourselves from the prison of our subconscious mind ? those limiting thoughts that tell us we are not enough. When we understand that our behaviours and thoughts are a result of our subconscious programming, we can deconstruct where those limiting beliefs came from and we are able to free ourselves from them and experience true liberation. Peter demonstrates how we can deconstruct our own negative thought patterns by talking to me about some of the things that have affected me in my life. We discuss how our subconscious programming can affect our intimate relationships and question whether the Hollywood ideal really exists. This is a really powerful conversation and I really hope it helps you to find more happiness in your life.

#81 Why When We Eat May Be More Important Than What We Eat with Professor Satchin Panda

RE-RELEASE - This episode originally aired as a 2-part episode almost 18 months ago and has been one of the most popular episodes to date. After releasing Episode 77, I have had many requests for more information on the impact of circadian clocks on our health. I have therefore decided to re-release this conversation with world-leading expert in circadian biology, whose research in this area is truly ground-breaking. So, here it is!

We know that snacking late at night isn?t a good idea, but until recently, there was little research into what health benefits we could gain from avoiding it. This week, I talk to world leading expert in circadian biology, Professor Satchin Panda, whose research has shown that mice who were restricted to eating within an 8-10 hour window were completely protected from obesity, type-2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease! Professor Panda discusses the findings of his ground-breaking research and explains that when we eat really may be more important than what we eat. We delve into sleep, how research in this area may influence the timing that pharmaceutical drugs are given in the future, why we should wait an hour after waking before eating or drinking anything and much more. Professor Panda?s wealth of knowledge in this area is amazing and this is a really fascinating conversation.

CAUTION: If you have diabetes or are on any blood sugar lowering medications, talk to a healthcare professional before you go for prolonged periods without eating.

#80 Why Spending Time With Your Friends Is More Important Than You Think with Dhru Purohit

Loneliness is an epidemic. We are surrounded by people yet many of us feel empty. Why is this? This week, one of my best friends, entrepreneur and podcast host, Dhru Purohit explains that many of us are craving deep meaningful connected friendships and we don?t even know it. We have the feeling that we are in control of our lives, that we are surviving, but we miss the fact that we need a deep connection to others to truly thrive. We discuss the power of touch and how having someone to open up to about the way you feel literally calms your nervous system down. We talk about why making friendships is harder as an adult and why this is a particular problem for men ? a fifth of whom say they don?t have any close friends. We chat about our own personal experiences and what works for us.

These days, many of us expect our partner to be everything to us ? from confidant to our best friend ? Dhru explains why having friendships outside of our intimate relationships is essential. Finally, we delve into how we can deepen the friendships we have and how communication is essential to maintain them. Dhru?s insights are invaluable and I think they will really make you examine the relationships in your life. I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation, I hope it inspires you to take some time out to sit down and talk to one of your friends.

#79 How Running Can Transform Your Life with Sanjay Rawal

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains mild swearing.

When we think about running, most of us think of it as a form of physical exercise ? something that we do to lose weight, look better or stay healthy. Some of us like to measure how far and how quickly we can run. But running can be so much more than that. What if someone told you that running could be a tool to transform your life? This week, film-maker and inspirational human being, Sanjay Rawal, is here to do just that.

 

Whilst making his latest film (3100: Run and Become), Sanjay followed the most elite multi-day race in the world - the 3,100 mile race, which takes place on the streets of Queens, New York City each summer. He also followed the Kalahari Bushman and a group of Japanese Monks. What was common amongst all three groups of people was that they performed superhuman feats with the sole goal of spiritual growth. Sanjay talks about their individual journeys and what we can all learn from them.

 

Through physical exertion, Sanjay believes that we can all understand who we are and connect to something bigger than ourselves. We discuss how modern life presents many obstacles for us, but Sanjay explains how we can all achieve self-expansion, whether we are running or simply walking down the road. This is an incredible conversation ? I think you will really enjoy it.

#78 How to Reverse Childhood Obesity with Kim Roberts

SPECIAL EPISODE FOR WORLD OBESITY DAY to support a charity called HENRY, which is doing amazing work to combat childhood obesity.

The statistics look gloomy. 1 in 10 children are obese when they start school and the odds are stacked against them. Only 1 in 20 children who starts school obese, will be a healthy weight when they leave primary school. But finally, there is a glimmer of hope. Have HENRY found a solution to reverse the trend? Their results so far are extremely promising. Today, I talk to Chief Executive of HENRY, Kim Roberts about the amazing work that HENRY does and what they have achieved so far. HENRY believes that the problem doesn?t just lie in what people are eating and tries to work with parents to create healthy environments. Kim explains that empathy before education is key and that HENRY takes a holistic approach to helping families become healthier and happier. The practitioners that HENRY trains have reported that they too have benefited from the training and have made positive change in their lives. HENRY?s approach echoes my own approach when tackling health of families and I believe that if it was available to all families, we would be a happier, healthier nation. At a time when childhood obesity is on the rise and we are at risk of our children having a lower life expectancy than their parents, it has never been more imperative to talk about these issues. I hope you enjoy the conversation.

#77 Why Getting More Light Will Transform Your Health with Linda Geddes

Since the dawn of time, humans have worshipped the sun. And with good reason. Our biology is set up to work in partnership with it. From our sleep cycles to our immune systems and our mental health, access to sunlight is crucial for living a happy and fulfilling life. Our bodies and our brains are designed to function during the day and rest at night. But as more of us move into light-polluted cities, spending our days in dim offices and our evenings watching brightly lit screens, we are in danger of losing something vital: our connection to the star that gave us life. It's a loss that could have far-reaching consequences for our health. This week, I sit down with award-winning journalist, Linda Geddes, to discuss just what those health implications are. We talk about the concept of night owls and larks and examine whether getting a lie in at the weekend is really as restorative as it sounds. We discuss jet lag and Linda shares the fascinating findings of her research in this area ? including her own experiment of getting rid of light at night in her own home. Finally, we discuss what we can all do to get a little more light into our days. If you are listening to this podcast during the day, you won?t be able to resist the urge of going outside to soak up some natural light!

#76 How to Optimise Your Brain Health with Dr Rahul Jandial

We are undergoing a huge technological experiment. In our pockets we have tiny technological miracles through which we can communicate, instantly, with anyone on the planet. We are constantly bombarded with endless information. But what impact is all this having on our brain? Why is it important to allow our brains to drift into random thoughts and be creative? I discuss all this with neuroscientist and brain surgeon, Dr Rahul Jandial, who loves technology but believes that we need to structure some boundaries around its use ? especially for children. We talk about the impact of music on the brain and what it means to be in flow state. Dr Jandial explains what happens in the brain when we engage in what he calls ?meditative breathing? and why he is such a huge proponent of it. He explains how his knowledge of brain health has shaped the way he parents? from encouraging navigational skills in his children to exposing them to a diverse range of experiences. It seems where the brain is concerned ? if you don?t use it, you lose it! Finally, he draws on his years of experience as a brain surgeon to share some practical tips that can help us all get the best out of our minds.

#75 What Every Parent Should Know with Philippa Perry

How do we improve our relationship with our children? Why do our children make us feel so irritated at times? And what do we do if we?ve acted in a way that we shouldn?t have? I?m joined this week by psychotherapist and author, Philippa Perry, to talk about all these issues and more. We discuss why culture gets in the way of our natural instincts and why she believes that allowing your child to ?cry it out? can be harmful. We delve into the effect that technology is having on our relationships and discuss screen-time for kids. Philippa explains that although we all get it wrong at times, it is how we repair our mistakes that is key. We also discuss why being authentic with our children is important for a close connection. Finally, Philippa shares her tops tips, which I have started putting into practice already!

#74 How Diet Can Save Your Mental Health with Professor Felice Jacka

We all know that a poor diet negatively impacts our physical health. In fact, it is now the leading cause of early death in men and number two in women. But it?s not only our physical health that is affected ? the effects on our mental health can also be devastating. This week, I am joined by world leading expert in the field of nutritional psychiatry, Professor Felice Jacka, to discuss her ground-breaking research into the link between food and our mental health. We discuss why lifestyle medicine should be the starting point for many mental health conditions and why there is an urgent need to train medical practitioners to give such lifestyle advice. We delve into the important role the gut microbiome plays in this area and how a diet rich in diversity is key. We also talk about the link between a mother?s diet in pregnancy and their child?s emotional health. At a time where the modern food environment is so broken and depression and anxiety are on the rise, this conversation is more important than ever. It really is a fascinating listen ? I hope you enjoy it!

#73 Why You Are Stronger Than You Think with Ross Edgley

?You are more powerful than your mind allows you to believe?

 

This week, I have the great pleasure of sitting down with arguably the fittest (but definitely one of the loveliest) men on the planet ? swimmer and all-round adventurer, Ross Edgley. He believes that the next frontier of human performance is the mind and his superhuman feats are testament to that fact. He is the first ever swimmer to circumnavigate the whole of Great Britain without ever setting foot on land. And this is just one in a long list of mind-blowing accomplishments for Ross.

But how is all that relevant to the rest of us? As well as talking about how he got through his epic journey, Ross explains the science behind why our minds limit us. He explains how we can all push ourselves beyond our comfort zones and reap the amazing knock-on benefits that come from doing that. We delve into the importance of intrinsic motivation and self-discovery through self-discipline. Ross speaks with wisdom and humility and is truly inspirational ? he challenges you to go on your own journey of self-discovery. The overriding message from both of us is ? it doesn?t matter where you start, just start somewhere. I hope this episode inspires you to push yourself outside your circle of comfort.

#72 Brain Training, Addiction, Self-Love and Community - End of Season 2

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing and themes of an adult nature.

This week's episode wraps up the second season of the Feel Better, Live More podcast. Over the past 12 months, I've had the honour of sharing fascinating conversations with a wide variety of incredible people. Thank you to every single one of my guests - each conversation has been an inspiration to me. 

 

In this episode I re-share some of the anecdotes and wisdom shared by a few guests from this series - Dr Tara Swart explains how we can all take back control of our lives by training our brains to create the life we want to live; Dr Gabor Mate calls for a compassionate approach toward addiction, where we look for the source of the pain that has led to the addiction; Chloe Brotheridge talks about self love and the importance of putting ourselves first in order to be in the best that we can be for others; and Johann Hari shares a heart-warming story of how an unlikely community was borne out of desperation and the unbelievable transformations that occurred for the whole community as a result of it.

 

This isn't a 'best of' episode - there are far too many amazing conversations to choose from for that - but I hope that you enjoy these clips and that this short compilation reminds you of some of your favourite episodes or inspires you to check out previous episodes you might have missed. Thank you to every single one of you who downloads, listens, shares, comments and gives feedback on this podcast - I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! 

 

I'd love it if you would join the #FBLM podcast conversation online, share the podcast, let me know what your favourite topics have been and what you'd like to see covered in the new series. Until then, I hope that you have a fantastic summer. Whatever you get up to, I really hope that you try and apply some of the things that you've learnt from this podcast. And finally, in the words of Haemin Sunim in episode 62, 'May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be peaceful, may you always be protected'.

#71 What Makes Us Human with Tony Riddle

This week I sit down with natural lifestyle coach, Tony Riddle, who plans to run the whole length of Great Britain completing 30 miles every day for 30 days completely barefoot in order to show what humans are capable of and what he believes is biologically normal for us. He also plans to raise awareness of sustainability along the way. Tony believes that we are a species that is destined to be innately empowered, wild and connected yet our modern lives are removing us from this natural state. For the last 18 years, Tony?s whole raison d?etre has been to find ways of living that are more in sync with our human biology in order to allow himself, his family and his clients to thrive in this modern world and in this episode, we discuss what he has learnt. Tony believes that the closer you take people to nature, the better able they are to heal. Many would consider Tony?s lifestyle extreme ? he has no chairs in his house and is mostly barefoot. Tony explains why he has made the decision to get rid of all the chairs in his home, why the squat is so important and why having functioning feet is critical for our overall health. Tony also shares some simple ways that office workers and night shift workers can improve their health whilst at work. Finally, Tony shares some of his top tips that will help us all feel better in our everyday lives. This conversation provides a really fascinating insight into what Tony believes is the true essence of being human. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

#70 Why Sleep is the Most Important Pillar of Health with Professor Matthew Walker

This interview originally aired 12 months ago as a 2 part conversation, which have proved to be two of the most popular episodes that I have released so far. Many listeners have asked me to re-release them as one single conversation so that they can listen from start to finish without interruption, so here it is!

Sleep is one of the most undervalued components of our health, yet neglecting it can have devastating consequences. In this episode, I talk to world-leading sleep researcher, author of the international best-selling book ?Why We Sleep? and Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology, Matthew Walker. We discuss everything you ever needed to know about sleep. Matthew shares some brilliant tips to combat jet lag, explains how sleep can enhance athletic performance and decrease risk of injury and reveals just how much caffeine consumption can impact sleep. We explore the reasons behind the current global sleep-loss epidemic and how sleep deprivation can affect every aspect of our health ? from our blood sugar levels and our risk of heart attack to our mental health. Finally, we discuss alcohol?s impact on sleep and the staggering financial costs associated with lost sleep. Matthew also shares what he has changed in his own life since starting his research. This is an invaluable conversation ? I hope you enjoy it!

Please note: Matthew has agreed to do a follow-up podcast to answer any questions you may still have about sleep. Listen and let me know which questions you would like me to put to Matthew via my closed Facebook group (Dr Chatterjee 4 Pillar Community Tribe), where you can also discuss other podcast episodes and any lifestyle changes that you are trying to make.

#69 Michael Pollan: Could Psychedelics Solve the Mental Health Crisis?

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing.

Many of you will know Michael Pollan as a world-renowned food writer but now he has written a book that brings psychedelic drugs into mainstream consciousness. But why? Long before they gained a bad reputation, it seemed to researchers, scientists and doctors as though psychedelics were going to be the new wonder drugs for mental illnesses. They promised to treat conditions like alcoholism, depression and anxiety without the side effects associated with conventional drugs. But unfortunately, in the 1960?s, there was a backlash against the counter-culture who had embraced psychedelics and all further research was banned. Now, decades later, the world is in the grip of a mental health crisis. But thankfully, there is a glimmer of hope ? research has recently begun again on the amazing potential of LSD, DMT and psilocybin. This week, I sit down with Michael Pollan to take a deep dive into this extraordinary world. We explore the remarkable history of psychedelics, the findings of the current research in this area and Michael shares his own personal experiences with psychedelics under the guidance of therapists. Whilst larger scale studies are still needed, we talk about how therapist-guided psychedelic drug therapy could potentially change the way healthcare is delivered for mental illnesses ? perhaps meaning a resolution of not only symptoms for patients, but also in many cases, the fundamental root causes. Finally, we discuss the potential wider use of psychedelics as a tool for social change. This really is a gripping and eye-opening conversation ? I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

#68 Tennis: A Game for Life with Jamie Murray

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains mild swearing.

Having won 6 grand slam titles, Jamie Murray is one of the most successful British tennis players of all time. This week, with Wimbledon nearly upon us, I sit down to talk with him about what he does behind the scenes to keep fit and healthy and what we can all learn from this ? from the equipment he carries with him to how he focuses his mind before a match. We talk about his childhood, how much tennis he and his brother (Andy Murray) played as children and whether just focusing on one sport is beneficial for children. We also discuss the benefits of playing doubles and Jamie talks about his youtube channel in which he has created instructional videos to help people improve their doubles game.

#67 The Secret to a Long and Happy life

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing.

A long healthy life is no accident. It begins with good genes, but it also depends on good habits. If you adopt the right lifestyle, experts say, chances are you may live up to a decade longer. So, what?s the formula for success? National Geographic Explorer and author Dan Buettner has lead teams of researchers across the globe to uncover the secrets of Blue Zones?geographic regions where high percentages of centenarians are enjoying remarkably long, full and happy lives. In this week?s episode, I talk with Dan about his adventures in the Blue Zones and discuss what we can all learn from his findings.

Dan found commonalities amongst each of these Blue Zones which led to a formula for success that includes lifestyle, community and purpose. We delve into all these areas and discuss how achieving a long, healthy and happy life is something that goes far beyond personal responsibility. People in these longevity hot spots do not pursue health and happiness. Health and happiness ensues from the environment which they are in. Dan explains what you can do to design your surroundings to stack the deck in favour of health, longevity and happiness. We also discuss Dan?s Blue Zones Project - a health and longevity initiative that models the principles of communities around the world that have the longest living people and applies those principles to other cities and communities. The results have been staggering.

Finally, Dan explains how he has changed his own lifestyle following his research and he shares his top tips for living a longer and more fulfilling life. This is a fascinating conversation ? I hope you enjoy it!

#64 Time and How to Spend It with James Wallman

Time is the most precious commodity we have, yet despite all the advances in technology, most of us are more time poor than ever before. Cultural commentator and best-selling author, James Wallman, believes that few of us really understand which experiences bring us joy and success, and which don?t. In fact, for many of us, free time can be harder to enjoy than time at work. James argues that just as we have learned to spot the differences between junk foods and superfoods, we need to learn the equivalent rules for time. He has drawn on research from psychology, economics and culture to create a seven-point checklist that he believes will help you avoid empty experiences and fill your free hours with exciting and enriching ones instead. We discuss the importance of putting ourselves in challenging or unusual situations, having fulfilling relationships, achieving a state of flow and being in nature. James also talks about the importance of having status and significance for happiness and explains how we can all attain this in our lives. Finally, James gives his top tips for leading a happy and fulfilling life. This is a really lively conversation and James is bursting with anecdotes ? I hope you enjoy it!

#60 The Secret to Solving the Stress Cycle with Drs Emily and Amelia Nagoski

How do you experience stress? Women and men generally experience stress in very different ways and women are much more likely to feel overwhelmed and exhausted than men. But why is this? Guests on this week?s episode, Drs Emily and Amelia Nagoski believe that the reason lies in the fact that what?s expected of women and what it?s really like to be a woman in today?s world are two very different things?and women exhaust themselves trying to close the gap between them. 

They explain the importance of separating the stress from the stressor. Stressors are the external forces that are giving you stress. Stress is an experience that happens in your body ? it?s a physiological cycle that has a beginning, a middle and an end. And you can complete the stress response cycle even without fixing the problem and getting rid of the stressor. They explain the various ways in which we can do this ? from laughing and crying to having a warm embrace with a loved one. We also discuss the importance of human touch and how imagination is a surprisingly powerful way of completing the stress response cycle. 

Emily and Amelia share their own personal journeys and share some brilliant tips, that are simpler, easier and quicker than you may think. This is a really passionate and inspiring conversation ? I hope you enjoy it!

#59 Personalising Your Health with Alessandro Ferretti

We are all bombarded by stress throughout our daily lives and it comes in many different forms, but how do we actually know what impact that stress is having on our bodies? One of the key messages from today?s conversation is a reminder of how unique we all are. My guest on this week?s episode is nutritionist and researcher, Alessandro Ferretti, who has spent years researching the effects of various stressors on the body by meticulously monitoring the heart rate variability (HRV) and blood sugar levels of both his clients and himself. He shares the fascinating findings of his research and explains that what causes stress on our bodies can be different for different individuals - one man?s medicine really can be another man?s poison - and the way we perceive an event is key. We also discuss the effect of shift work on our bodies, how type 2 diabetes is not just a dietary problem, how the wrong timing of meals can act as a significant stressor on the body and the impact of caffeine and insufficient sleep. Finally, he gives some brilliant tips for optimising your health. This is a really informative conversation ? I hope you enjoy it!

#55 Eating for Longevity with Professor Valter Longo

What do we need to eat in order to live a long and healthy life? World-leading researcher in longevity, Professor Valter Longo, shares his views on diet and nutrition in this week?s episode. We discuss high protein diets, ketogenic diets and the concept of a low carb diet. Valter believes that we have over-simplified nutrition by looking at macronutrients in isolation - carbohydrates, fats and proteins ? but in actual fact, we need all of these in our diets. And just as there are ?good? fats and ?bad? fats - some that we should be eating more of and others less of, the same is true of carbohydrates. Finally, Valter talks about fasting and his novel approach to research whereby he takes ancient knowledge and wisdom and marries it up with the latest science. This is the approach he used when formulating the fasting mimicking diet (FMD), a five-day plan that causes the body to go into fasting mode. Valter talks about the amazing benefits the diet - such as reducing visceral fat and abdominal fat. Although it hasn?t been proven in humans yet, it has been shown to reduce fatty liver, insulin resistance and even improve some autoimmune conditions in mice. This is a really eye-opening conversation ? I hope you enjoy it!

DISCLAIMER: Dr Chatterjee accepts no responsibility for anyone deciding to undertake the Fasting Mimicking Diet(ProLon). Please read all the disclaimers on the ProLon website ? they state that ProLon is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Also, that it should not be used to treat either Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes. Finally, please pay close attention to the ?Is ProLon Right For Me? section of the ProLon website if you wish to undertake the diet.

#54 Re-Defining Happiness with Professor Paul Dolan

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing and themes of an adult nature.

What really makes us happy? Is it a big house, lots of money, marriage and children? Not necessarily. Yet so many of us base what we do upon the ?stories? we tell ourselves of what we think should make us happy without paying attention to whether these things actually do make us happy day-to-day. Professor of behavioural science and guest on this week?s podcast, Professor Paul Dolan, believes that happiness is subjective in every way and if we free ourselves from the myth of the perfect life we might each find a life that is worth living.

We discuss how happiness lies in the small stuff, not the big life-changing things. It is located in the things we do and the things we pay attention to ? and how we feel about those experiences. Paul argues that the right balance of things that you find fun on one hand and fulfilling on the other, lead you to a happy life. He shares lots of practical tips that can help us all find more fulfilment and ultimately more happiness. I hope you enjoy this conversation.

#53 How to Do Less, Do it Better and Live More with Elizabeth Emens

Do life?s mundane tasks like paying bills, answering emails or booking appointments feel like a whole other job? The stuff of life never ends. It piles up in junk drawers, steals our time, weighs on our minds and, if avoided for too long, can have painful consequences. We are all drowning in things to do and it is a major stressor on our bodies ? impacting our health, wellbeing and the quality of our relationships. A big part of the problem is that this ?life admin? is invisible: we forget it exists, and the people around us don?t value the labour involved. Not only that, but the constant bombardment of unwanted work gets in the way of our big life goals and our self-care. This week, I talk to professor of law and author of ?The Art of Life Admin?, Elizabeth Emens, about how we can make this work visible, better manageable and fairer. She gives some brilliant tips on how we can all steal back some time to do the things we want to and bring more calm into our lives. I hope you enjoy the conversation!

#52 Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression with Johan Hari PART 2

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing and themes of an adult nature.

This week, I continue the conversation with the inspirational Johann Hari, who shares insights from his forty-thousand-mile journey across the world to interview the leading experts about what causes depression and anxiety, and what solves them. But it was not those experts that taught Johann the most, it was the incredible people of a Berlin district called Kotti ? he shares the heart-warming story of how an unlikely community was borne out of desperation and the unbelievable transformations that occurred for the whole community as a result of it. We discuss how our isolated lives mean that our basic psychological needs are not being met and how this is impacting suicide rates, particularly for white males. We delve into how a dramatic change in societal ideals is leading to more unhappiness. Also, how people are turning to screens, social media and other addictions to fulfill their unmet needs. Finally, Johann shares some truly inspirational top tips. This really is a captivating and incredibly important conversation ? I hope you enjoy it!  My new book, ?The Stress Solution? contains lots of practical solutions to help you with many of the issues discussed in this podcast. It is available to order on Amazon now.

#51 Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression with Johann Hari PART 1

CAUTION ADVISED: this podcast contains swearing and themes of an adult nature.

For the past few decades, almost every year, levels of depression and anxiety have increased in Britain and across the Western world. But why? One of the most important voices in this area, Johann Hari, went on a forty-thousand-mile journey across the world to interview the leading experts about what causes depression and anxiety, and what solves them. He shares the fascinating findings of his research in this week?s podcast. Johann explains that although we have been told a story that drugs are the solution to depression and anxiety, in many cases, the cause is not in our biology but in the way we live. He argues that being depressed or anxious does not mean that you are crazy, weak or broken, rather, that your natural psychological needs are not being met. And it?s hardly surprising - we are the loneliest society there has ever been. We discuss how loneliness affects us and how social prescribing can transform lives. We delve into the role trauma plays and how shame is both physically and emotionally destructive. Johann believes that societal values have been corrupted and explains the effect that this is having on our health. Finally, we talk about the role of the workplace and how having autonomy and choices can reduce the likelihood of depression and anxiety. This is a gripping conversation and Johann's anecdotes are truly captivating - I hope you enjoy it!

#50 How Social Media Could Be Making You Ill with Cal Newport

How did this happen? We?re all living ultra-connected lives. In our pockets we have tiny technological miracles through which we can communicate, instantly, with anyone on the planet. Yet we are lonelier than ever before. Research has shown that levels of anxiety and depression have exploded, especially in the younger generation, who push time spent connected to the extreme.

Professor of computer science and author on this subject, Cal Newport, explains why. We have evolved to be part of a mutually supportive human tribe, where being isolated, meant danger. As far as our brains are concerned, digital interactions do not play the same role as real conversations. Instead, they pull our time and attention away from real-world interactions and our brains react as if something is wrong. In addition, constant connection means that downtime is being eroded from our lives and we are losing the ability to just be. We discuss the concept of digital minimalism and how we all need to spend time doing what Cal calls, ?high quality leisure activities?. Finally, Cal gives some brilliant tips on decluttering your digital world. This is a thought-provoking conversation ? I hope you enjoy it! I cover these issues in my new book, ?The Stress Solution? and suggest simple ways in which we can all bring back real-life connection into our lives.

#49 The Untapped Wellbeing Resource with Stephen Deuchar

?In a single glance through a picture, you can be transformed into another world?

It?s no secret that we are facing unprecedented levels of anxiety. But what if there was a parallel world that offered us a different way of thinking about life? Director of the Art Fund, Stephen Deuchar, believes that museums and art galleries offer just that. He talks about the fascinating findings of a recent report that found that actively deciding to take time for cultural activities and pursuits can have a profound impact on our overall wellbeing. Stephen believes that every human could be moved by a piece of art or culture and that there is something on offer for everyone. And it needn?t take hours ? even a short visit will be beneficial. After talking to Stephen, I feel inspired to explore the rich diversity that is on offer. I hope you do too!
