Most Effective Way to Reach Your Health Goals

The Most Effective Way to Reach Your Health Goals

Steve Birch weighed 250 pounds and was on cholesterol and blood pressure medication. At Thanksgiving, he realized he was sweating, not because it was hot, but because of his extra body fat. It got to the point that when he looked at family pictures, he was appalled at the sight of himself.

Now Steve is 30 pounds lighter, off his medication, and feels better than ever. How did he finally reach his health goals? With the help of the Dad Edge Alliance. Doing life with other likeminded men upped the accountability factor, giving him the motivation to stay on track on not give up.

Listen to how Steve Birch is becoming not only a better man and father, but a healthier one.

Being there for your family means taking care of your health. #dads #men #fathers #fatherhood #dadlife #dadbod #menshealth Click To Tweet

The Dangers of Internalizing Stress


Stress causes 90% of the health issues that are killing us today. Every thought or emotion we have releases chemicals into the environment in which our cells grow. This causes inflammation, disease, and bad habits that are damaging mentally and physically.

In this 100th episode of Thursday Throwdown, Dr. Ryan Wohlfert talks about how internalizing feelings and emotions leads to a build up of stress, and how we as men and fathers can boost our health and achieve sustainable success by surrounding ourselves with likeminded men and sharing our challenges with them.

Why do most men internalize? We may not even be conscious of it, but many of us have the belief that we’re not worthy to be happy and successful. Getting with a men’s group helps us to find out who we are, what we want, and why we want it. A tribe of brothers gives unbiased advice, moral support, and holds us accountable, so we can achieve longterm, sustainable success in money, work, and relationships

The Realistic Way to Transform Your Body

The Realistic Way to Transform Your Body This Year with Josiah Novak

Probably the biggest thing we try to fix in the new year is our health. We set goals to lose weight and tone up, but we tend to fail year after year. Being in optimum shape is important to being a good father, husband, and man. If you listen to this show, this could be the year you actually stick to your health resolutions once and for all.

Josiah Novak is the host of The Fit Man Project podcast and the founder of True Transformation. He is back to tell us why we keep failing at our health resolutions and the secrets to creating a plan that we can succeed at.

Get ready to transform your body in 2018 and beyond!

Don’t be afraid to sit down and create a plan, and don’t be afraid to reach out for help. – @JosiahFitness #NewYears #resolutions #men #dads #fathers #2018 #fitness Click To Tweet

 

Heads up: The name of the show for 2018 will be changed to the Dad Edge Podcast. There will be no change in the content or the website, just the new show name and logo. Let us know how you like it!

Josiah Novak

Josiah Novak has been a guest on The Good Project several times. Josiah came from four generations of divorce and abuse. As an adult, he went through a tough time with weight gain and depression. At one point, he was even suicidal. Josiah used fitness to get through living in a dark place.

Josiah didn’t have a father to look up to and it’s his mission is to change the legacy that he comes from and help other people do the same by establishing a foundation of health.

If we’re taking care of our health, we have a much better chance of coming out on top when it comes to the legacy we leave behind. – @JosiahFitness #men #dads #fathers #fitness Click To Tweet

How to Optimize Fitness, Nutrition, and Unconditional Love with Tony Horton

On today’s episode of the Good Dad Project, we have P90X creator, Tony Horton. He talks about how fitness and nutrition reprogrammed his brain. He also shares his success and his failures, and how he maintains a thriving marriage with his wife, Shawna.

Tony Horton

Tony Horton is the wildly popular creator of the best-selling fitness series P90X. Tony is a world-class motivational speaker and the author of top-selling books “Bring It”, Crush It!” and his latest motivational book, “The Big Picture” 11 Laws that will change your life. He has appeared on countless television programs as a fitness and lifestyle expert to promote healthy living through exercise and proper nutrition. In keeping with Tony’s passion for a healthy lifestyle, he’s created his new hair and skincare line, TH Care, because he believes what goes on your body is just as important as what goes in it.

Tony believes that real and lasting change can happen when we commit to health as a lifestyle. Exercise, whole foods, and the right mindset is the formula that leads to a vibrant, productive and full life for anyone who focuses on being the best they can be.

Fitness and Nutrition

It’s hard to believe that during his school years, Tony was not the popular athlete. He was an Army brat whose family moved all the time. He was small, not athletic, and plagued by a speech impediment called cluttering. He had trouble making friends, and lived in a constant state of fear and angst.

It wasn’t until college that Tony’s life changed when he joined a weightlifting class. As he began to exercise, he started paying attention to what he ate. His body transformed, and so did his mind. He noticed that his GPA went up. His confidence increased and his fears were fading. He credits fitness and nutrition for rewiring his brain and changing his life.

Success and Failure

Tony moved to California where fitness is part of the culture. He became so involved, that at one point he had four different gym memberships. His experience with all different styles of fitness training was the foundation of P90X.

Tony had difficulty topping the amazing success of the P90X series. He has had twenty-one failed businesses since then, but it doesn’t stop him from moving onto the next idea. Tony believes that luck is when opportunity meets readiness, so he always makes sure he’s prepared and open to new opportunities.

Luck is when opportunity meets readiness.

His Marriage

Tony didn’t get married till the age of 57. Before then, he was playing the field. He went for the wrong women for the wrong reasons. Eight years ago, he met his wife, Shawna, on a blind date. Now he says they’re more in love than ever.

He credits the success of their marriage on going out of their way for each other. They don’t let problems sit and expect them to go away. They never throw each other under the bus, especially in front of other people. They also give each other room to do their own things.

What’s my job? To make her life awesome!

Tony Horton’s Dad Wisdom

Tony is not a dad. But as a son, he grew up in a household with alcohol, chaos, and poor communication. He knows his parents did their best, and he also realizes that their parenting is the reason things turned out so well for him and his sisters, but he there were things he would’ve liked to learn from his parents that he found out later in life.


SPECIAL OFFER FROM TONY HORTON

A new Hair and Skin line perfect for those looking to push their bodies to the limits, all the while nurturing and moisturizing the largest organ on their bodies, their skin.

how to get rid of the dad bod Josiah Novak

How to Get Rid of the Dad Bod in 2017 with Josiah Novak

Fitness Coach, Josiah Novak, is back on The Good Dad Project to tell us the secrets to following through with health resolutions and getting rid of the dad bod in 2017.

The New Year is well on its way. Have you stuck to your health and fitness resolutions? If you haven’t, you’re not alone. As much as 70% of New Year’s resolutions are abandoned by March. Josiah Novak is here today to tell us why it’s so difficult to commit to a new health regimen. He also gives us simple and effective strategies to ensure great results without sacrificing precious free time or depriving ourselves of the foods we love.

Dad’s want to be the king of everything for their families, and we constantly compare ourselves with others. Social media, supplement companies, and magazines give us unrealistic expectations. So when we can’t keep up with the latest extreme diet or fitness program, or if we don’t instantly get the shredded body we hoped for, we ditch our efforts and go back to our old bad habits.

It’s time to break the cycle in 2017. Busy dads can apply these health and fitness strategies, no matter what kind of lifestyle they lead.

  1. Find a plan that fits.

Dads tend to go into the New Year with an all or nothing approach. But life gets in the way, and if our plan doesn’t go perfectly we give up. Trying to rearrange your entire life around a crazy diet and exercise program will set you up for failure. Josiah says that having a plan is just part of the game. You must keep pushing forward even if you caved into junk food or skipped a few workouts. There are many ways to add fitness and nutrition to your life, and you’ll have greater success if you arrange new habits to accommodate to your existing lifestyle and schedule.

  1. Go for progress, not perfection.

Exercise and eating habits are difficult to change. It might take up to 90 days to settle into new healthy habits. Don’t focus on where you may have slipped. Instead, focus on what progress you have made. Maybe you didn’t work out as much as you planned, but it was much more often than before you had started. Maybe you didn’t stick to your nutrition plan, but you did eat more healthy foods than you did before.

  1. A healthy lifestyle is an investment, not a cost.

One of the biggest issues that keep dads from optimal health is they feel like they’re being selfish when they want to take time for themselves for fitness. But it’s selfish NOT to invest in your health. It’s a requirement. Imagine if one day you are unable to take care of your family because of health problems. Heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and other illnesses can be prevented by committing to healthy eating habits and regular exercise. You can’t afford not to be in your best health as a man, and especially as a father.

  1. You don’t have to put in hours at the gym.

Some men know they’ll never be able to put in hours at the gym. They’ll never have the time or money or energy, so they give up on the idea of working out altogether. Josiah says this is another excuse. You don’t have to go to the gym to get the results you want. There are plenty of ways to workout at home that will get you in excellent shape.

  1. You don’t have to work out every day.

Consistency is the key. That’s why it’s so important to create plan that flows with your lifestyle.  You could train for hours in the gym every night, but give up after a few weeks, or you can find a routine that fits your schedule and stick with it. Even if it’s 20 or 30 minutes a few days a week, you can get surprising results.

  1. Keep healthy foods around.

Nutrition is the hardest part for busy dads, but it’s the most important. It’s impossible to exercise your way out of a bad diet. The key is to have a system that is simple and lifestyle-friendly. One of the easiest ways to avoid temptation is to keep healthy food around at all times. When you’re cooking lean protein, like chicken breast, make extra portions and keep them in the fridge for later. Make sure you have healthy snacks around like low-sugar protein bars and smoothies. If you go out for lunch, take the opportunity to order a low-calorie protein rich meal like a salad. That way when you get home and you’re tired, you can be a little less strict during your evening meal with the family.

  1. Take diet breaks.

As long as you have discipline and do not binge, you can take diet breaks during the week. Don’t deprive yourself of ice cream when you’re out with the kids. Enjoy a date night dinner with your wife. What’s the point of being healthy if you can‘t live a little every now and then? Then you’ll feel ready to recommit to your diet the next day.

 

Josiah Novak’s Dad Wisdom

There will be moments as in fitness, fatherhood, marriage, or career where you will want to give up and drop everything. It’s normal to feel that way, but good things always happen when you push through. NEVER QUIT.
