About the episode:

In today’s episode, I explore how Andy Petranek thinks about creating daily habits for the Whole Life Challenge.

For those who aren’t familiar, the Whole Life Challenge started as a game to change your habits in 7 areas of life: nutrition, exercise, mobility, sleep, hydration, well-being, and reflection. The game is designed to help you get momentum with these habits so that they become a part of your daily routine.

This show is brought to you by us, Beyond Macros, a nutrition coaching company that helps you make a sustainable transformation through realistic habit changes rather than restrictive dieting.
