PTP432 Howard Jacobson
In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Howard Jacobson about changing other people and if that is even possible. It is always a hoot with Howie. This is his fourth appearance on the Plant Trainers Podcast and we always laugh and have fun. For some, change is no laughing matter, and trying to change others is even more serious. I think at the end of the day, our conversation was about the steps you can take to respectfully model and educate the ones we love about a plant-based diet to help them be ready to decide to change on their own. This episode is for anyone who is plant-based and is struggling to have their family members and the ones they love follow suit. 

Howie Jacobson, PhD, is a health coach and an executive coach to clients ranging from startup founders to established and rising Fortune 100 leaders. He is director of coaching at Bregman Partners and head coach at the Healthy Minds Initiative.

Howie is the author of AdWords For Dummies; coauthor of Sick to Fit and Use the Weight to Lose the Weight, with Josh LaJaunie; contributing author to Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition and The Low Carb Fraud, both by T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D.; and Proteinaholic by Garth Davis, M.D. Howie’s writings have also appeared in Fast Company and Harvard Business Review.

He hosts the Plant Yourself Podcast, where he interviews remarkable people engaged in healing at the individual, institutional, and planetary level.
