The Pursuit of Enhancement Podcast Episode 19
Welcome to Episode 19 of The Pursuit of Enhancement Podcast.
My name is Peter Ledwidge and I am your host.
Each week I sit down to talk in-depth with guests that push the boundaries of conventional living, driven by the singular pursuit of being on an unrelenting quest to continually expand the horizons of their body, mind and spirit.
The aim is to learn more about them and from them; their story, the work they are doing, the highs, the lows, the triumphs, the heartaches and everything in between.
The hope is that these conversations might spark something within you that gives you cause for self-reflection, inspires you to embark on your own journey of self-discovery or gives you the courage to take a chance and go after your goals.
This week is part 2 of my conversation with clinical dietitian and phd researcher, Joel Craddock
As well as that he is an Ironman, a Father, vegan, an entrepreneur, an activist and the chief meme artist behind the highly popular instagram account veggie scapes.
If you missed Part 1 make sure to go back and check that out. HERE is a link to part 1.
As a clinical dietitian and Joel has worked in the NSW public health sector for many years. He has recently left to take the opportunity of a research PhD exploring vegetarian-based dietary behaviours in relation to physical activity.
This research aims to understand diet behaviour, motivations and supplementation use in people who follow vegetarian-based diets and engage in physical activity ranging from recreational to elite.
He has also recently started his own plant-based dietitian consultancy and takes clients in person or remotely.
Joel is the founder of clothing company TwoSix9; Ethical apparel, made predominately from wind & solar energy, organic cotton & ink and 10% of proceeds are donated to animal rescue sanctuaries.
He is also a father of 2, husband and recently competed in Ironman Cairns which we will get to in this week’s episode.
This week on the podcast we’ll talk about
- Ultra endurance adventures; Sydney to Ulladulla, Melbourne to Sydney and Sydney to Brisbane, both assisted and unassisted. Cycling around New Zealand and ironman.
- Learning through failure, making amends with failure and contemplating ‘what would you do if you knew you could not fail’ and if you knew this would you try at all?
- Fatherhood, raising kids on a vegan diet.
- We talk about despite the fact that he has so much going on that he finds or rather makes the time to devote to them all and the greater idea of living a life of passion, which sometimes can be a bit cliche but to show what that actually means and looks like in reality, it is getting up each day and being in complete control of your schedule, that everything is of your choosing and by your design, not obligation or necessity. He didn’t just wake up one day and know what he wanted to do, there was lots of trial and error, moving around but in the end finding what he really wanted to do
