Coach JC Deen discusses the underrated mental game when dieting. He wrote the best book I’ve read on the subject, so I thought I’d get him on the podcast to explain about the subject, instead of doing a poor job of it myself.

  1. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I’d
    genuinely appreciate it.
