156: Fat Loss, Family & Friends – Navigating Social Situations and Relationships

Mar 24, 2016

I get a lot of questions about fat loss, family & friends. I guess, more specifically, I hear from a lot of people that their family & friends make their fat loss more difficult.

Today, I want to tackle those challenges (and I do believe they can be simply tackled without trading in your friends or abandoning your family).

A lot of this comes down to personal responsibility & understanding that you are the only one controlling what does (or doesn’t) go into your mouth.

But, I totally know it’s not as easy as simply ignoring other people’s comments, questions or challenges. So today we’re tackling fat loss, family & friends from both tactical & mindset standpoints.
