It's not often that the stories of how we got to the unhealthiest points in our life are told, but there is always merit in hearing them. You get to understand a great deal about the life the person lived, their struggles and what makes them human before hearing about their success. Success isn't always linear either, and Ed's journey has been far, far from that.

When we first met, he was around 104kgs, which was the heaviest he had ever been. On top of being a single carer and starting a new job in corrections and the stress from the loss of a loved one, you can see how Ed's health quickly took the backseat. There have been plenty of hiccups along the way, but you can hear Ed's full journey via our podcast episode here.

A sneak peak of the episode

Listen to the full episode here.

1. Trust in your trainer, you need to trust their judgment otherwise you'll second guess yourself. 2. Training by yourself? Find a good playlist. I train better when I listen to certain type of music that helps me warm up, cool down, in the amidst your sessions etc. 3. Variety with your diet. Pick a couple good recipes, mix and match, tweak them to suit your needs.

"It comes back to finding your goal, be it as simple or as vast as you want it to be and working towards in in small, manageable increments. The second part is find people who have done what you're looking to achieve, people who have done it before, an expert, a trainer, some one who may have ran 10km's if you're trying to run 5km. Find people who know what you want and how you can succeed." - Steve Guy

We'd of the Redesign Community would like to express Steve a massive thank you for coming onto the show to share his wealth of knowledge and wish him very well on his journey to improving the health of everyone he touches.

Gut health is such a new topic in the health industry that it took me, a personal trainer of 4 year to finally start shedding light on it. But for Kriben Govender of the Gut Health Guru's podcast, it's been more than 20 years of Food industry experience that has allowed him to intimately understand the interaction between diet and the gut microbiome.

I had the absolute pleasure of Kriben coming on the Redesign Your Body podcast to chat all things digestive health, the immune system, fermented foods & lifestyle sustainability.

There were 3 very important tips that were shared with us to get improving not only our Microbiome, but our health overall:

1. Improving your sleep; Protecting your sleep with better sleep hygiene, a good sleep ritual & blue light management using blue light blocking glasses in the morning & evening.

2. Form a circadian rhythm; where you wake up and sleep at the same times, start eating at similar times each day and having a restricted eating window to finish the day.

3. Cleaner eating - swapping from the traditional Aussie diet to focus on more natural foods such as vegetables, fruits, lean meats & essential fats.

This can be further complemented with fermented foods such kefir, kombucha and homemade yogurts which don't cost much to make and are very sustainable.

"Simply being really grateful when you're taking that food in your mouth and saying a little prayer, saying a little gratitude because that imparts the right frame of mind when you're taking that food and being grateful for it." - Kriben Govender

We'd of the Redesign Community would like to express Kriben a massive thank you for coming onto the show to share his wealth of knowledge and wish him very well on his journey to improving the health of everyone he reaches.
