Hey guys welcome back to the Plant Based Body Podcast!

In this episode Matt and I discuss:

  • Matt’s story

  • Masculinity and femininity
  • Being a young teen at 100kg
  • Battling with calorie counting and calorie restriction
  • The ‘fun’ of fad diets
  • Finding sustainable health and fitness
  • Transitioning to a plant based diet
  • Becoming a podcaster and tips & tricks
  • Self care for Matt
  • The importance of breathing and meditation

What a jam packed episode! I’m so happy that matt joined us this week and shared his incredible story with us. Every week I am astounded by the incredible guests who join me and share so openly and vulnerably. It is incredibly inspirational and hopefully this episode has left you with a little clarity moving forward in your life.
