As a person that exercises regularly, I skipped this episode initially, thinking that I knew all the answers. Goodness, what a revelation and a delight this podcast was. Brendan is incredibly humble as are Ella and Matt. I will definitely listen to this one again. Superb guys, I am so appreciative of your time, effort and focus 🙏🙏🙏

Sometimes I think I am addicted to the ritual of actually drinking something after work. So switching to a flavored carbonated beverage during the summer or a hot tea during colder months helps. That in addition to other calming, physical activity or self care activities helps.

I do not mean to cause any offence or harm to you both but what the doctor said regarding plantbased calcium bioavailability is false and very misleading. I'm a vegan myself and I believe a vegan diet can be very nutritious and healthy but I won't lie about what the science says and I won't address it as "perfect". Please revise this episode and do something about this. I love all your episodes and really enjoy listening to them but I couldn't stay quiet and ignore those false claims. They are quite harmful. The science is clear. Leafy greens are a good source of calcium but because they are high in oxalates, spinach it makes them not a great calcium source and harder for the body to absorb. I'm not a doctor or a health professional (& I don't claim to be) but I think that's common knowledge. Since I'm writing this, I want to congratulate u both on your new baby and I wish your baby girl health and happiness. Congratulations!!!!
