The Secret Formula for Making Habits Stick: Minisode #14

Download MP3

How many times have you attempted to start working out consistently, eat more veggies, or incorporate something new into your routine, but struggled to make it stick? Changing an old habit or creating a new one can be challenging, but when we use science to understand the secrets to lasting behavior change, it’s clear there are ways to overcome the struggle and get the results we want. 

In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Dr. Rangan Chatterjee and Dr. BJ Fogg about the secret formula for creating new habits that stick, and how it can not only be easy, but enjoyable and rewarding. 

Dr. Rangan Chatterjee is regarded as one of the most influential medical doctors in the UK and hosts the most listened to health podcast in the UK and Europe, ‘Feel Better, Live More’. His first three books have all been #1 Sunday Times best sellers and his latest book, Feel Better in 5, shows people how to transform their health in just 5 minutes. It has been a smash hit in the UK, selling almost 100,000 copies in just 7 months, and has just been published in the United States. Professor BJ Fogg, the world’s leading expert in human behavior, calls this book, ‘one of the best habit change programs he has seen—deceptively simple but remarkably effective.’ Dr. Chatterjee regularly appears on BBC News and Television and has been featured in numerous international publications including The New York Times, Forbes, The Guardian, and Vogue, and his TED talk, How To Make Disease Disappear, has been viewed almost 3 million times.

Dr. BJ Fogg is a Behavior Scientist at Stanford University and has focused his research on what he calls “persuasive technology.” He’s the founder of the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University and teaches industry innovators how human behavior really works, so they can create products to help people be healthier and happier. He’s culminated his life’s work and teaching into his first book, Tiny Habits: The Small Changes That Change Everything, which became a New York Times best seller.

How you start your morning sets the tone for the day. I’m a huge fan of morning routines, because I think they can transform your ability to focus, sleep well, and get the most out of your day, especially in this busy, modern world. 

What I’ve found is that the best way to begin your day is to feed your body the right information or the right nutrients. That’s why I created the Pegan Shake. It’s a nutritionally packed morning blend designed to support healthy blood sugar, energy, and brain power.  

It contains some of my most favorite brain boosting foods like MCT and avocado. It also features acacia fiber for healthy gut function and collagen, pumpkin, and pea protein to support muscle synthesis. Check it out at
