The worst mistakes people make with their diet and exercise [Podcast]

  • What is willpower, really?
  • What are the differences among willpower, self-control, self-discipline, and other related concepts?
  • What are the best ways to become more self-disciplined?
  • What are the differences between enthusiasm and motivation?
  • What are the most effective motivators?
  • What are fixed, performance, and growth mindsets?
  • Why are there so many competing kinds of diet advice?
  • What are the best ways of dealing with cravings?
  • What are some of the most common or worst mistakes people make with diet and exercise?

These are some of the questions Spencer Greenberg from ClearerThinking interviewed me about. Spencer’s familiar with the psychological literature and is a researcher himself, so we could have a great discussion packed with useful information to optimize your life. I think this is one of my more valuable podcasts, especially if you haven’t read or listened to my book yet.
