Today I talk about some reviews we've received in iTunes. Sometimes its hard to hear negative things about you, but you need to stop and ask if there is any validity to comments. In some cases, there are.
Here is the one that really got me. It was from Ellen.

I like the guy – he seems like a really good person. However, for the entire time I've been listening to his podcasts, he has puttered around with about a 10 lb. range – this over 2 years or so. He is addicted to Mountain Dew and the entire gist of his shows is to review some web based food and exercise tracking systems or fitness “aids” or iPhone apps. The bottom line is, I need somebody that motivates me by example. Dave seems to be doing this podcast just to listen to himself talk. If that is the purpose of the podcast, I think there are plenty of others that have moved past the “eat less exercise more” mentality. And the difference between them and Dave is, their approaches actually work. I need a podcast that gives me REAL guidance for losing, and not someone going on and on about the fit bit or body media / body bug. Inspire me by actually using LOGIC, not gimmicks. And, inspire me by actually losing weight. If the eat less exercise more model works, why are you not losing weight? Eat healthier foods, not Mountain Dew and McDonalds. The body needs nutrients, not to be tricked by processed foods that you scan the barcode with some b/s ap on your iPhone. Quit buying into paid websites, apps, fitness gurus who want to sell you plans or supplements, and do your research. I hope the best for you, but what you are doing is not working – for you or for me.
I've always try to be a person of integrity. I don't lie. I don't steal. I'm honest. Was I mad or hurt by this? Well, no. OK, maybe a little hurt. Then I read it again. This is a valid point. It is as simple (not easy) as eat less exercise more, but I'm not doing it. So I saw this last week, and I've really stepped up my game. I'm down two pounds this week. Thank you Ellen Henderson I really appreciate the kick in the pants.
