Episode 156: How Snickers Satisfies and Kills You

Subscribe & Listen:

Hungry? Have a Snickers. That’s what these marketing guys keep telling you. But… what they DON’T tell you is that their Snickers will actually kill you.

Yep. Tally up all the proven side-effects of a high saturated fat, high sugar, high calorie diet. It will kill you… and is the short-term satisfaction really worth that long-term consequence?

Well, that’s today’s reality check. Delay gratification. Your body will thank you for it. Your mind will thank you for it. So listen to today’s episode, subscribe and rate us in your podcatcher of choice, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 155: Don’t Kid Yourself. You Have No Freedom

Subscribe & Listen:

I just took my daughter back to school shopping. Yep. One week into August and it’s already back to school. Because nowadays, you go to school 10 months a year. And even after you spend 6 hours in school, you get 2 hours of homework.

What ever happened to free time? We’re really just preparing our kids for their lives as adults, where they’ll be working jobs they hate, spending all their time on their iPhones instead of loving every breath they take.

In America we pride ourselves on being so “free…” but don’t kid yourself. This isn’t freedom. And that’s today’s reality check, so listen, subscribe and rate us on your podcatcher of choice, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 154: Sugar is the New Smoking

Subscribe & Listen:

Today I’m going to talk about one of the most dangerous drugs. It looks like cocaine, but it’s everywhere. And it’s called sugar.

I’m back with Eddie Palmer (who knows a thing or two about fitness and nutrition), and the two of us can almost GUARANTEE you don’t know how much sugar you’re actually consuming. And you don’t know how addicted you are to it.

So today’s challenge? If you really don’t think you’re addicted to sugar, try to give it up. And let us know if you’re not going through the shakes within a day or two.

Listen, share and subscribe to 10 Minute Daily Reality Check in your podcatcher of choice, and if you want to get in touch with Eddie and get some really great health advice, you can email him at eddiepalmer12@gmail.com.

Episode 153: Are You Sometimes a Liar?

Subscribe & Listen:

Liars… we talk about liars all the time here on the 10 Minute Daily Reality Check. But, there are different types of lies, different types of liars. And what about the lies that are small, harmless, and you only tell sometimes?

Are those the same as the big, constant, pathological lies? Can you sometimes be a liar while still living your authentic truth every day? These are the questions I’ll answer in today’s reality check.

So join us, subscribe, rate us in your podcatcher of choice, and be sure to come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 152: Spread the Love, Not Your Legs

Subscribe & Listen:

So many of us are looking for love. Looking for love, and yet, we refuse to change our actions. We refuse to change our beliefs. And that’s what creates our reality. If you refuse to change, your reality will not change.

I’ve said it thousands of times before: lose your type, find your standards. And that’s what today’s reality check is all about: stop spreading your legs. Instead, spread the love.

Join Eddie Palmer and myself for another great reality check today, subscribe to and rate the podcast in your podcatcher of choice, and if you want to get in touch with Eddie, shoot him an email at eddiepalmer12@gmail.com.

Episode 151: Hot, Horny, Stoned, & Drunk

Subscribe & Listen:

I have a confession to make. I am a recovering addict. An oxytocin addict. I used to be ADDICTED to the oxytocin rush of sex and hooking up.

It’s kind of like getting drunk, and that’s why it’s NEVER a good idea to sleep with someone when you’re under the influence (whether that influence is weed, booze, or oxytocin). Hot, horny, stoned, and drunk is never a good combination.

So today’s reality check is all about self-control and owning the truth of your actions. Listen, subscribe and rate the podcast in your podcatcher of choice, share it with your friends, and if you want to get in touch with my guest Eddie Palmer for some great health/nutrition/fitness advice, send him an email at eddiepalmer12@gmail.com.

Episode 150: Don’t Donald Trump Yourself!

Subscribe & Listen:

Oh, America the Narcissist. Last weekend we had a great discussion about narcissists, and this week we’re going to tell you who the biggest narcissist of all is: Donald Trump. Love the guy or hate him, that’s what he is.

And you know the thing about narcissists? They can never admit they’re wrong. They’re always blaming others. And if that’s not a perfect description of the Donald, I don’t know what is.

So today, Eddie Palmer and I bring you this reality check: don’t lie to yourself and blame others. Don’t Donald Trump yourself. Listen to today’s episode, subscribe, share it, rate it, and if you want advice from one of the best personal trainers in the world, shoot Eddie an email at eddiepalmer12@gmail.com.

Episode 149: Do You Have Friends or Minions?

Subscribe & Listen:

Well, the NFL pre-season is finally here, and there’s something called the “physically unable to perform” list. Well, here on the 10 Minute Daily Reality Check we have something called the “physically unable to live life” list. It’s full of low-integrity people, people who live off of others and don’t take any responsibility for their lives.

And the question we want to ask is: what the heck do their “friends” think about them? Because true friends will call you out if you’re on the physically unable to live life list. But if no one’s calling you out on your shit, then guess what? You don’t have friends. You have minions.

Join Eddie Palmer and myself for an amazing reality check today, subscribe to the podcast and rate it, share it with your friends, and if you want to get in touch with Eddie shoot him an email at eddiepalmer12@gmail.com.

Episode 148: Be Weary of the White Coat

Subscribe & Listen:

It’s football season again! And you know what I love about football season? No, not gossiping about whether Ezekiel Elliott really fondled that girl.

It’s the commercials. I love these freaking medical commercials promising a pill that’s going to cure my restless leg syndrome, but it’s going to give me suicidal thoughts.

Yeah, today’s reality check is beware of the white coats. Beware of the so-called experts. Beware of trusting doctors without questioning their education, their backgrounds, and who’s paying them (cough* pharmaceutical companies!)

We’re back with Eddie Palmer today, someone who actually does know what he’s talking about when it comes to health, nutrition and exercise, so download and rate this podcast and spread the word. And if you want to get in touch with Eddie, be sure to shoot him an email at eddiepalmer12@gmail.com.

Episode 147: Be Kind Please Rewind

Subscribe & Listen:

Remember Blockbuster? Remember their simple request, “Be Kind Please Rewind?” It basically meant don’t be a shitty person. Treat people with respect.

Well, at some point, maybe once Blockbuster shut down, we forgot about that simple rule. And that’s what today’s reality check is all about. We’re back with Eddie Palmer and we’re going to talk all about the philosophy of “Be Kind Please Rewind.” We’re going to talk about the spiritual laws of success, the Golden Rule, and why so many people these days are just, well, self-centered shitty people.

So join us today, subscribe and rate us in your podcatcher of choice, and if you want to get in touch with my great friend and the best personal trainer on the West Coast, shoot Eddie an email at eddiepalmer12@gmail.com.

Episode 146: The Perils of the Clueless Human

Subscribe & Listen:

We’re all on this planet to help one another, watch out for one another, care for one another, and help each other along our own personal journeys. But I’ve gotta tell you… so many of these humans are so f*cking CLUELESS!

There’s the woman who’s talking loudly on her phone in the foot massage spa. There’s the man who’s loudly screaming into his phone on the elevator. There’s the guy and the girl who feel the need to check Instagram at every red light they stop at.

And we’re going to talk about all of them, all of these characters who have been plucked out of Seinfeld and put into the real world. SO join me for today’s reality check, share this episode with your friends and leave us a review, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 145: Pavlov Travels Down the Past Shit Highway

Subscribe & Listen:

Remember Pavlov? I won’t go through who he was (you can look him up on Google), but basically what he did was program his dogs to expect certain things.

And that’s exactly what modern dating has become. We’re all Pavlov’s dogs who are programmed to date because of our past shit. So today’s reality check is all about taking a walk down Past Shit Highway and clearing it out, because guess what? Dating is not a chore. It’s an opportunity to meet someone new, to have a new and exciting experience.

Join me as I travel down Past Shit Highway with you, subscribe and rate the podcast in your podcatcher of choice, and be sure to come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.
