👋 Hello to the 838 Intentional Wisdom readers receiving todays’ SPECIAL EDITION of the newsletter. I’ve been teeing this up for some time now and I’m happy to say… it’s finally here: Intentional Wisdom, the podcast.
I’m delighted to bring you this first episode featuring Chris S. Cornell who is one of the most recognized faces in the low-carb/keto community and someone whose story I have found to be incredibly inspiring.
Like this newsletter, you’ll notice that every episode of this bi-weekly podcast will focus on finding practical, actionable strategies that you can apply in your own life to improve your career, your habits, your motivation, and your physical & mental health.
In this conversation, Chris and I got into the weeds on low-carb diets. Specifically, we discussed:
The exact plan he followed to lose ~80 lbs
His non-negotiable nutrition rules and why rules are so effective at cementing behavioral change
The benefits of intermittent fasting
Tracking macros & the optimal protein intake
Specific foods that Chris recommends
The importance of seeking out quality information when it comes to nutrition and any other behavioral change
I learned a lot from this conversation and it’s influencing the way I’m thinking about my own diet today. I hope you’ll listen and let me know what you think.
I’ve got some great guests lined up in the coming weeks and months to talk about everything from careers to NFTs, so make sure you subscribe to the Intentional Wisdom podcast on your favorite platform, and please leave a review. I’d love to hear what you think!

Thanks for reading this Special Edition of the newsletter.
I’ll be back in two weeks.
But before you go…
🎙 Rich Roll & Tim Ferriss — I mentioned last week that this episode was on my radar. Now, I’ve listened to it and it’s even better than expected. Roll’s story of reinvention after age 40 is tremendously inspiring. If you have anyone in your life who struggles with addiction, please share this episode with them.
I wrote a quick thread on Twitter about my top takeaways from the episode. You can find it here:
Finally - special thanks to my wife, Whitney, for her expert photography in our backyard for the podcast art and to Heidi Lilly for some wonderful design work.
Appreciate your attention as always!
