A recent podcast, Dr Chatterjee speaks to endurance athlete and author John McAvoy about how he turned his life around with determination and willpower.
Dr Rangan Chatterjee is a GP, TV presenter and best-selling author of The Stress Solution and Feel Better in 5, who kindly contributed an article to International Therapist (IT) magazine in 2018 about lifestyle medicine. He also produces Feel Better, Live More, the number one health podcast in the UK.
In this powerful podcast, Dr Chatterjee has a conversation with John McAvoy who has served ten years in some of the UK’s highest security prisons. John now holds world records in rowing and is an Ironman triathlete.
In the podcast, John explains that he first started rowing in prison and at the time wasn’t aware of current world record times, he highlights how this might have been one of the reasons he did so well. Dr Chatterjee then says: ‘If you start with a blank canvas, you just do the best you can do. I think that is so empowering.’
