“The science of success is almost the same across the board. This was a huge revelation for me.”
— Alexander Heyne

Greetings, SuperFriends!

I’m joined today by Alex Heyne, the founder of Modern Health Monk and author of the book Master The Day: Eat, Move and Live Better With The Power of Tiny Habits.

Given my recent interest and deep dive into the world of habits, I was really excited to interview today’s guest.

In the episode, we talk about how to create and modify habits, through the lens of someone who has spent years working with people in the weight loss community. It's a great episode, with lots of wisdom to share, and I think you're going to really enjoy it!

Favorite Quotes from Alex Heyne:

“People don't fail to lose weight, or fail to be successful because of the strategies we implement. It's because of who we are.”
“Our fundamental philosophy is wrong about what it takes to actually lose weight.”
“Life doesn't change…until something today changes.”
“The average person only reflects on what needs changing once a year… Imagine if you did that every day?!”
“I've had borderline metaphysical things happen from just visualization.”
“I find that whatever the bad habit is, you can usually replace it with something else.”
“Life is non linear. We try to control life because we think that the future is going to be linear… but it almost never is.”
“The worst thing you can do is resist life.”

    Great interview with Dr. Greg Wells! He mentioned a doctor from Colorado around the 42:30 point of the podcast, discussing turmeric and black pepper. I couldn’t make out the doctor’s name. Can you provide me with his full name and maybe his website or contact info. Interested in his products.
