The Pursuit of Enhancement Podcast Episode 31
Welcome to Episode 31 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 I bring your part 2 of my conversation with Chris Moore, vegan fitness enthusiast and aspiring bodybuilder
If you missed part 1 make sure you go back and check that out after you’ve finished today’s episode.
Quick Catch Up
To quickly summarise, Chris grew up as a normal healthy, active kid but by the end of high school had stopped being active and was at his heaviest weight of 235lbs or just over 100kg. At this point he was not only overweight but also a smoker, a partier, depressed, anxious and generally unhappy. He suffered with health issues such as indigestion, lack of quality sleep, feeling tired, bloated and fatigued. At 19 years of age he knew this just wasn’t right. he decided it was time to make a change and start putting things right again. He went to the doctor who prescribed medication but he knew there had to be a better way.
So he decided to undertake some research as to what might be beneficial in overcoming his anxiety. This was when he discovered the plant based diet and it’s ability to help alleviate the anxiety he was experiencing.
Flash forward 8 years he is now fit, healthy, depression and anxiety free, has quit smoking and drinking and hasn’t consumed animal products for over a year.
His transformation has been much more than just physical. This is his journey, who he was and who he is today. He no longer struggles with the self confidence to share his story.
This week we talk about
- More practicalities of transitioning to a plant based diet and small steps to help you make the change
- Making you more conscientious of your unconscious thought patterns, when you become away of them and recognise them then you can change them.
- A pragmatic discussion around veganism, being plant based and large scale reduction of meat and dairy consumption for your health
- How fatherhood has impacted his life and is now a huge motivator for how he lives his life. Chris also tells us about how beneficial a plant based diet has been for his son’s development.
- His future plans and projects
Much of today’s episode contains guidance that can be applied to any area of your life that you want to make improvements in. The first step is taking small steps in that direction which will all add up to great change.
