We all know we need to eat better. What isn’t so clear is how to do it in the time-crunched, temptation-filled modern world. Author, lecturer, and nutrition consultant Chris Mohr, Ph.D., R.D., specializes in helping regular people stick to healthy nutrition plans, and we invited him on the THO podcast to share the strategies he uses with his own clients who have busy schedules and don’t want to hate their food by counting every calorie.

See below for the topics that Mohr, host Orlando Rios, and Onnit Senior Content Strategist Sean Hyson cover, and then check out Mohr’s 12-week Fat Loss Nutrition Plan at https://www.onnit.com/academy/12-week-fat-loss-nutrition-plan-part-1/

The umbrella of Total Human Optimization covers the quest for physical improvement in all its forms, but it also encompasses mental, emotional, and spiritual growth. You can work your way to having a perfect body, but if you end up alone in the process, it’s an empty achievement. In the spirit of upcoming St. Valentine’s Day, we asked clinical counselors/life coaches Brian Grasso, Ph.D., and Carrie Campbell—one of the happiest couples we know—to offer some tips for bringing more love into your life, whether you’re alone this year or in a relationship that isn’t as fulfilling as it should be. You’ll learn that the path that leads to your soul mate has nothing to do with the body you have, the money you make, or the pick-up lines you use. Rather, it begins with finding love for yourself, and then slowly learning to release from the thoughts and habits that have kept you from meeting the love of your life.

Show Notes:

Why your ability to love someone else depends on loving yourself first (2:30)

Recognizing low self-esteem (2:40)

Counting your wins (7:50)

Finding love online—why rejection doesn’t matter (11:40)

How to know what you’re looking for (17:08)

Why focusing on looks blinds you to true beauty (23:20)

How to visualize the love of your life (26:00)

Are you in the right relationship? (31:29)
