Julian Hayes Notable Quotes

“To me, a superhuman is someone who is emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically superior to what I call the average human being—and it starts with your state of mind.”
Julian Hayes

“I think a lot of times with people, they know they need to exercise, they know they want to eat healthier, they want to do this, but they’re in this paradx where a lot of their time and attention is being taken away from these things.
                                                – Julian Hayes

“Your genetics give you a clue to your past, while epigenetics could mold your future.
– Unknown


Episode Summary

Most of the time, when people are told that a condition is genetic, they slump in defeat and concede to the fact…which shouldn’t be the case. The reason being this: we can take certain steps to prevent those genetic traits from manifesting, thanks to epigenetics.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to Body Architect author Julian Hayes to talk about how to activate the good genes and keep the bad genes at bay, and ultimately become the master architects of our own bodies.
