Ep. 43 – my most important episode to date

My revelations about weight loss that you need to hear.

Welcome to episode 43 of Coach Taylor Radio!!!!!

I am very serious when I say that I believe this is the most important episode of my podcast to date. EVERYONE needs to listen to it.

I can’t think of a ‘most important’ section because I get a little deep in a couple of sections and these are all message that I wish I could get across to our entire population.


On this episode

Odyssey 2019 Update (3:30 )
–> The first half of this section is important – LISTEN!

One of THE most overrated exercises (32:34)
–> **Spoiler alert** Planks. Let me discuss why!
–> AND I offer some alternatives

Weight Loss Revelations (42:25 )
**** –> THIS SECTION <– ****
If you listen to nothing else – make it this section of the podcast. I had a huge AHA moment last week and I want to share it with you. This marks just the beginning of diving harder into this idea but everyone needs to hear this.

And there is a good chance you have a friend or two that needs to hear this section as well. Share it.

2019 Health Odyssey Inclusions (23:30 )
–> I go over the last of the things that are a part of my year long journey

This is a great book for people wanting to learn about fermenting for the first time. Well written, interesting, and has lots of recipes!


Sandor Katz is credited with reviving fermentation for the modern world! I have not read this book of his but it is very highly reviewed!!!

I have read this book and I love it. It is more about the history of fermenting and an amazing overview of fermenting around the world. There are no recipes but as you dive hard into fermenting you will realize there are no recipes….. 🙂
