JC Deen Interview by Andy Morgan Rippedbody.com

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.

About the Author

Andy Morgan

I'm an online nutritional and training coach living in Tokyo, Japan. After seeing one too many people get ripped off by supplement and training industry lies I decided to try and do something about it. The site you see here is the result of a lot of Starbucks-fuelled, two-fingered typing. It's had a lot of love poured into it, and I hope you find the guides to the diet and training methods I use on this site useful. When I'm not helping clients you'll likely find me crashing down a mountain on a snowboard, racing around Suzuka circuit, or staring at watches I can't afford.
