Episode Summary

Ready to jump start the new year feeling your best (and weighing less)? In this week's episode of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast I speak with Tanya Zuckerbrot, author of the popular weight loss book, The F-Factor Diet.

Tanya Zuckerbrot

Tanya Zuckerbrot, MS, RD, is a nationally-known dietitian and the creator of the renowned F-Factor Diet, the only dietitian-created program for weight-loss and optimal health that is based on fiber-rich nutrition. Tanya has worked in private practice in Manhattan for more than 20 years and her success was profiled in the Sunday Styles section of The New York Times.

The F-Factor Diet evolved from Tanya’s early work with patients to help lower cholesterol or control diabetes. She discovered that all of her patients improved their clinical conditions – and lost weight without hunger- by following a lifestyle diet that was rich in dietary fiber.

Tanya is the author of two bestselling weight loss books: The F-Factor Diet: Discover the Secret to Permanent Weight Loss (2006, G.P Putnam & Sons), and The Miracle Carb Diet: Make Calories and Fat Disappear the F-Factor Way – with Fiber! (2012, Hyperion).

It's almost time for running season. Are you ready? This week's episode of The 5 AM Miracle features a thorough discussion on how to train for your first big race, from a 5K all the way up to a full marathon.

I have run about a dozen marathons and few ultramarathons in the last few years. Every race has taught me a little more about what it means to train well for a race and what it means to screw up badly.

Predictably, I almost always realize I didn't trained enough and I didn't train properly. So, today I'm sharing 5 Do's and 5 Don'ts on how to prepare for your first big race.

Episode Summary

Based on my 2015 Reader Survey, 66% of my audience works full time and 28% are planning to start their own business. As an entrepreneur who started his own business while working a full-time job, I know how tough this can be.

Building a successful business is tough, even if you have all 168 hours every week to work on it.

Taking into account a 40-hour a week job, a family, personal hobbies, personal health, social time, weekly appointments with doctors, churches, car repair shops, and walking your dog, it can be next to impossible to make time for a side business.

But (and this is the big but) — it can be done.

In fact it happens all the time and I plan to shed some light on this ambitious and worthwhile goal.

John O’Leary

In 1987, John O’Leary was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion in his home and was burned on 100% of his body. He was given a 1% chance to live.

This epic story of survival was first showcased in his parents’ book, Overwhelming Odds, in 2006. Originally printing 200 copies for friends and family, his parents have sold 70,000 copies, most in back-of-room sales at John’s speaking events. It was this book that first invited John to embrace his miraculous recovery and share it with the world.

John inspires nearly 75,000 people at 100+ events each year. He speaks to companies and organizations across industries, such as: sales, healthcare, business, safety, marketing, financial services, faith, education and insurance.

Consistently described as “the best speaker we’ve ever had,” John receives nearly 100% of his engagements from referrals. His schedule is a testament to the power of his message and who he is as an individual. His emotional story-telling, unexpected humor, and authenticity make each of his presentations truly transformational.

John’s first book, On Fire: The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life, was an instant #1 National Bestseller; 120,000 copies have sold and it has been translated into 12 languages. John’s Live Inspired Podcast is a top 20 for business on iTunes & Inc. Magazine. His online community is 200,000 strong.

John considers his greatest success to be his marriage to his wife Beth, their four children and his relationships with friends and family.

Andy’s latest book, The Bottom of the Pool, shares his unique philosophy regarding foundational thinking. Through his unique and captivating storytelling, Andy helps you search for the reality that lies beyond the boundaries established in the name of “best practices,” “industry standards,” or “the way things are done.” For it’s at the bottom of the pool that you discover a pathway to extraordinary results that most people in your position do not even know are possible.
