lani-muelrath-2015Lani Muelrath is one of the world's most accomplished wellness and fitness coaches. She combines cutting edge scientific research on fitness, diet, and mindset with an encyclopedic knowledge of behavorial science with a lifetime of experience helping people achieve health and happiness.

And now that she's making her third appearance on the Plant Yourself Podcast, I don't think I can call her a “guest” anymore. She's now a regular.

Her latest book, The Plant-Based Journey, to which T. Colin Campbell and I have the honor of contributing a foreword, comes out on September 15, which is tomorrow as I write this. She's offering a bunch of bonuses as incentives to pre-order, so if you're an early listener to this podcast, you still have an opportunity to make your online purchase and grab some goodies.

In our conversation, we cover:

  • why Lani wrote The Plant-Based Journey
  • the biggest challenges and obstacles to effective lifestyle change
  • the hidden dangers of exciting, inspiring immersion events
  • the value of meal templates rather than recipes
  • lifestyle lessons from Everest
  • the difference between food addictions and addictive foods
  • dietary disinhibition and learning to juggle
  • the unicycle principle of learning
  • lifestyle insights from behavioral economics: status quo bias and loss aversion
  • Lani's subtle battle with dark chocolate
  • and much more…

    This is a fabulous interview. I didn’t know of Lani. As a long term plant based family this really hits the spot on many ‘rough’ areas. Thank you both so much! Howard – you do what no one else does and I cannot thank you enough! For those that know the basics you provide so much more than I can find anywhere else! rock on buddy! xo

      Thanks for your kind words, Stephanie and Dave! Lani has been tremendously helpful to me over the years. In fact, I’m just reminded of the fact that I want to invite her on the show again – it’s been too long! 🙂
