How To Re-Wire Your Brain For Optimal Fitness & Nutrition w/ Drew Logan

“We can create neurological patterns based on our brain chemical responses to exercise and nutrition.”
— Drew Logan

Greetings, SuperFriends!
Today we are joined by Drew Logan. You’ve probably heard of him – he’s a renowned fitness expert, celebrity trainer, and a television star.

But actually, we go through something much more kind of interesting and rare in the beginning of the episode, which is that Drew died. Three times. He is the only known survivor of three consecutive sudden cardiac arrests. Doctors don’t know why it happened. They don’t know if it’ll happen again. And living with that has given drew a really unique mindset and really unique approach to life.

Drew is known for his fitness approach, 25 days, which deals a lot with habit and mindset. And in this episode, we talk about how all that works and how he has created a proven program to rewire your brain, stop weight gain, and finally crush the habits you hate forever. His book will be coming out in September, which if you’re listening to this at release, is probably right now. And he sure has a lot of really valuable stuff to offer.

Enjoy!
