Ep. 157 - Finding Your Deeper Purpose For Staying In Shape For Life

This is the first a multiple part series where I’ll be joined by different members of the team to talk all about the intricacies of the investment phase. I reflect back on my relationship with food back in 2014, and how my bingeing / restrict yo yo cycle almost landed me in setting up a dessert lounge. If you’re someone who’s in an investment phase that wants to understand the underpinning of what staying in shape with a lifestyle solution is all about, this will be a big one.                          

‘’The lack of investment phase is the reason why we have a weight management problem”
