71. Ben Azadi – Building Habits for Better Health

In this episode, Lance and Ben Azadi dive into building powerful habits that can help you achieve your health goals. 

Ben Azadi grew up obese, dependent on drugs, addicted to video games, and having low self esteem. At the age of 24, he reached his heaviest weight of 250 pounds and his long time girlfriend left him. These were the trigger points that had driven him to turn his life around.  After 9 months of focus and hard work, he lost 80 pounds and gained a new mindset. Because of his weight-loss journey, he discovered the world of health and dieting. Since then, his quest to understand the link of diet and body has shaped him into becoming an authority in the health space. 

Today, Ben is a three-time best-seller for The Perfect Health Booklet, The Intermittent Fasting Cheat Sheet, and the Power of Sleep. He has helped over thousands of people to bring their bodies back to normal function and hit weight loss goals. 

Ben tells listeners: “When you line up your daily actions with your highest values, living your purpose there’s no blockage in creativity.”
