Here is lucky episode #13 of the Bold and Determined Podcast.
The streaming audio is available above.
If you prefer to listen to this podcast in a different format here are the direct links:
In the last episode we discussed: How to influence people, how to be a better bad guy, how to be the next Don Corleone, dating western women, overcoming all addictions including sex addiction and carbohydrate addiction and so much more.
In this episode we discuss: The key to self-mastery, the crazy world of the US, the reality (or un-reality) of money, building communities, celibacy, depression caused by knowing the truth, and friends.
Stan asks… (3:05)
How can a Man reach Self Mastery?
The need for sex causes you to live in bondage to another person. The man who reaches self-mastery must be completely self-sufficient. Dopamine denial = liberation.
Graham says… (9:34)
This is one of your best podcast episodes yet. It seems almost every episode is better than the last. I always appreciate your commentary and your energy with the messages you share.
I am still going strong with no-self-abuse November (that is the real name for it if we’re being honest.) The gains keep coming in. I am roughly on day 24 maybe 25, I lost count cause I started before November. The quality of my sleep has been drastically increased and I wake every day feeling well-resting and ready for a productive day. I have gained a more ready ability to say no to things I do not want to do. Things like wasting time on Youtube or the internet, mindlessly flipping through my phone, and craving bad foods. It’s almost as if discipline begets discipline.
Waking up early is my favorite part of this entire process. The hours between 5am and 7am truly are sacred. Only the dedicated are waking at those hours of their own accord. The work is more intimate, personal, and meaningful in those first 4-5 hours.
I have dropped down to two meals a day. I am not lifting as hard as I want to right now but that is because i have a lot of other work that needs tending too, so two meals is certainly enough in this regard. Steak and eggs in the morning and the evening makes me feel great, smooth, and steady for the responsibilities I need to take care of. (I will say though in the 30DOD I have from about a year ago it recommends 3 meals a day though just fyi, idk if you updated it.)
My voice is deeper, more authoritarian, and commands more attention. I am naturally soft-spoken, but the confidence gained from no-abuse-November SPECIFICALLY has changed the way I talk. I have always made good eye contact with people before, but I am also excited to combine my new voice with your third-eye-contact you talked about in this episode.
It seems every day that you choose to not roll in the mud with the pigs is a day that you naturally pull ahead, and the best way to do that is to follow 30DOD. To other readers this is not a month challenge, this is a life-change. Some may only do it for a month, but I encourage everyone to make the mental switch permenant. The world has a enough limp-wristed weaklings and needs more men. You WILL be rewarded for your discipline internally and externally. EVERY SINGLE ASPECT of my life has had people tell me that I am more confident, capable, and attractive since I buckled down on 30DOD. MAKE THE CHANGE.
I have questions for the next podcast, they are all related to Red Supplements:
-I have used Liver Tabs multiple times because you recommended them. I found they are one of the most legit supplements that money can buy. Will Red Supplements ever offer its own liver tabs? Liver itself, at least in my city, is hard to find, store, and eat every day. I would love to see Red Liver offered.
-What are your thoughts on Creatine for muscle building, pro-testosterone hormonal balance, and mental clarity? I see muscle-building benefits when I use small consistent dosages of it. I have also heard of it being pro-T and aiding brain health. Will Red Creatine ever be a thing? I ask this with Red Liver under the pretense that you would supply the best of these products that actually deliver the intended effects. So far I am loving Red PCT 2.0 (got my bottle last week), Red Coffee, and was a fan of your protein powder while you offerred it.
-There is a supplement I have never tried before but have been curious about. It’s called MK-677. I believe it is classified as a SARM and it starts GH pulses through the body. Have you ever used it? Would a growth hormone booster be something on the radar for Red Supplements?
-Regarding a sleep aid. I have been combining 5HTP, GABA, Zinc, Magnesium Oil, and Melatonin, all in low doses, and it has been an absolute wonder for my sleep along with no-abuse-november. Of course you still need to be away from screens before bed and have a nightly routine to wind down. I typically read or write for a bit in my journal and then ease calmly into a good night’s sleep. Would Red Supplements ever offer a sleep aid? I know you were trying CBD oil, and I’ve never tried that before.
Joseph asks… (12:30)
What is the reality of money?
Damon asks… (19:33)
I know you said you lived in L.A. for a while, I did too. How did you like it? I felt like there was such a disconnect with the people. I didn’t have much in common with them. Very phony and superficial, weed heads, and the women if you’re not a millionaire you can forget about getting any play out there. Not to mention there’s a serious immigration problem out there. What was your take on it?
Chad asks… (25:00)
Vic, thanks for recommending classical music. I have always been told by friends and the media that classical music is boring. After actually listening to it per your suggestion, I found that it is actually very exciting and beautiful and puts me in a good state.
(26:15) I have a question: are we ever going to be able to create our own communities or do anything in the real world with some kind of organization? I know it would be very difficult, but it seems insane to live in communities where everyone is killing themselves with estrogen, drugs, and lust. Of course we must have the stoic mindset to live wherever. But how are we going to raise families, and continue our bloodline, when if we remained in our current areas, chances are our children will turn into cattle like everyone else.
Communities are always built around 2 things: family and religion.
JJ asks… (28:34)
Victor, in your next podcast could you share your thoughts on the Chinese social credit system? Usually, evil masks itself in good things . . . but this is unlike any thing I’ve ever seen. I know that this only applies to Chinese citizens, but for us international travelers, why the hell should we patronize them by visiting their country?? Think about the implications if other governments adopt this at the same level they are.
Ragnar asks… (32:08)
Hey uncle vic I have a question, if you’re going monk mode when you’re in the states and only date when you are in Asia how will you find an Aryan woman to further your legacy and give birth to your progeny?
Floriao asks… (34:25)
Hey Vic, I’ve been on No Nut November and It’s been 27 days the last time i masturbated. I have crazy withdrawal symptoms, but i know there will be light at the end of the tunnel. Anyway my question: You said sometimes in a article that celibate are sometimes serial killers and bad people. I don’t have a current girl friend so i either stay celibate for now or need to get a hooker? I mean, a life without sex isn’t the solution, right? I am working most of the time and am still very young with 19, so the chance of getting a girlfriend very soon is small.
What is wanted is elimination of lust, but not suppression. Repression or suppression of the sexual desires will attack you again and again and will produce wet dreams, irritability and restlessness of mind.
Orestes asks… (39:19)
You said you don’t want to have non-white children, but you’ve got Asian girl. Every female want to have children, so what’s your approach? It’s her choice to be with you, so it’s ok to be with her in her best years?
Second – is cursing/swearing a bad habit and it’s better to be positive and reduce it? Does swearing show weakness, strongness or it depends on situation?
Luke asks… (41:57)
Do your hands and feet get cold during extended fasts? If so what do you do to remedy this?
Karl asks… (42:10)
Hi Victor, I have 3 questions for you on distinct topics:
1) Do you think everyone needs meat to function at optimal levels? Legendary rock climber Alex Honnold is apparently a vegetarian. Do some people function better without it, or is Honnold just a genetic elite? He eats muesli for breakfast and mac and cheese for dinner once in a while.
2) What are your thoughts on the recent (and great) work of Roosh V?
3) How does one solve the problem of low back pain and tight lower back/thigh muscles which cause constipation and discomfort?
Karl also asks… (45:21)
Victor, what are your thoughts on native tribes that survive solely on dairy? E.g. not meat and fish, but abundant cheese, milk, kefir, etc. These men and women grow up in excellent health according to Dr. Price. I think milk has everything we need. It provides all nutrients for a baby cow to go from 40 pounds to 400 pounds, so it must be the best/most potent food. How would meat be better? I eat meat too but wondering which is better, fresh meat or fresh milk.
Drew asks… (47:07)
Hey Victor, I recently had PT this summer to help with hip alignment. I thought the problem was gone but now I sometimes wake up with sore hips and sometimes feel weak in my mid-section in general. What stretches/ lifts do you recommend to help with an issue like this?
Bill asks… (47:38)
What are your views on Bill Hicks?
What are your views on George Carlin?
What are your views on psychedelic drugs?
Tito asks… (49:04)
Hi Vic, My girlfriend and I just recently broke up ( She was unfaithful ). I’m doing pretty good with putting my focus and energy into my mission. That focus keeps her out of my mind during the day, but when I’m getting ready for bed. When I’m trying to sleep. my mind, just cant help but turn to thoughts of her, him, and what I could have done to prevent this. Are there any things you have found that help keep negative thoughts out of the mind?
Jay asks… (50:35)
Do you recommend any natural products for cleaning dishes, clothing and surfaces?
Stan asks… (50:48)
What are the best habits a man can have?
What are the best supplements for men to take?
Johnny asks… (52:11)
Victor, I noticed no matter what I do, I always seem to have a little tiny love handle ( tummy). Even when I eat steak only and zero carbs. What the best remedy for this?
Danny asks… (53:00)
1. How can a man develop a stronger, more chiseled Jaw?
2. How can teeth be whitened naturally?
3. How can a man develop a deeper voice?
Laszlo asks… (54:37)
Good afternoon Viktor, I am in a bad state of mind, not due to being a loser or anything, but due to awareness of truth. I know of the pain and suffering in our world, the agenda of the elites, the fact that women are crazy, etc, there is anxiety all around and it is driving me crazy. You do what things to be less nervous? Is saturated fat enough to feel calm and happy as a clam? I feel like going down rabbit hole and seeking knowledge is good but more I learn more I depress, nothing is natural, everything around us engineered, feminism, anti-masculinity, hatred of whites, etc by evil forces, I have very little power to stop from progressing further
Black Mar asks… (56:35)
Vic, what’s your take on “vaccinations”? Are some government-issued vaccines today actually good to take for fighting off certain illnesses and diseases or are many of them “poisons” being injected into the masses to demoralize and kill off human populations? Will parents forbidding their children from taking certain vaccinations cause the kids to end up getting diseases like Chicken pox and polio again? Are there “good” and “bad” vaccines out there? What’s your take on this? I don’t think many vaccines are “well-intended”…
Rob asks… (57:36)
What do you think about the HIV Hoax? Do you think it is really a scam?
Wolf asks… (58:48)
What do you think about Operation Werewolf?
Benjamin asks… (58:53)
Victor, Do you have any friends? Are friends important once one reaches adulthood?
Nirantha asks… (1:00:38)
hello Vic does it take courage to stand alone when friends are few or girls are not helping?
Joe asks… (1:01:43)
Is Mike Cernovich still a friend of the blog? I feel like he has gone away from his roots, which is applying the principles of Bold and Determined. Maybe getting married has caused him to be more politically correct. I have seen him referring to male trannies as women. This never would have happened 2-3+ years ago. Are you guys still in touch?
J asks… (1:02:01)
Hey Vic two questions.
Do you still keep up with cernovich at all? At one point your blogs were almost one and the same, before he went deep into politics.
(1:02:44) Will you please consider adding a second weekly podcast? I think a lot of people on here would find this helpful.
Vlad asks… (1:03:00)
Is there some option for third-world countries like Russia to go low-carb, if eating only steak is not affordable option? The only affordable foods are chicken and eggs, and even these two are quite expensive. Our corrupt politicians say to us: “Pasta and kefir – eat them, they are inexpensive!” Not every family can afford meat here, and many people just eat pasta and candies, they are cheap. What compromise do you recommend to someone who doesn’t live in richest Western country?
George asks… (1:04:40)
I’ve only went to a low-carb diet (only bananas and multigrain bread) for two days and couldn’t continue. I was feeling hungry and the cravings were killing me. Bread makes me feel fulfil. If I eat meat without bread, I don’t feel satisfied. If I don’t eat carbs, I feel that my body shrinks. I lose weight. I started lifting weights a month ago and I am skinny as fuck. Skinny-fat to be honest. If I don’t eat carbs, how will I continue? I’m training for mass, not being lean.
Charlie asks… (1:07:12)
Victor – I was listening to your podcast from a couple of weeks back and I agree generally with your assessment of politicians. But I’m not so sure Trump is just like every other politician simply because he hasn’t been killed. I’ll be the first to admit that I have no idea what’s really going on behind the scenes. But from what I’ve seen, the deep state – establishment politicians on both sides, intelligence agencies, the media, leftist NGO’s, academia, etc. – are doing everything else they can think of first, short of actual murder, to get Trump out of office. If he’s really one of them, why this insane backlash?
(1:08:59) Also, if you believe that we’re in a mental war and the cure is to reject political correctness, do you feel Trump has at least been a good leader in that regard? He has no problem being non-PC and is very unapologetic about it.
(1:10:18) Also, do you still use kratom? And what are your thoughts on it these days? If I missed this in another podcast, just let me know! Thanks!
Richard X asks… (1:10:31)
Now that marijuana is legal where I live, pretty much every single one of my friends is now avid pot smokers. It absolutely baffles me how people who were always against drugs now actively partake, simply because the law changed and its currently deemed okay. I really do not want to put up with their vices and I do not want to be anything like these people.
Do I need to stop taking things so seriously, and enjoy a social life (which is consider to be good for you) or does simply associating with them bring me down to their level? In other words, Is it better to have friends that you can occasionally a really good time with, but who do not share your views/goals, or is it better to cut ties with them altogether and just be a one man show with zero friends?
Leo asks… (1:12:17)
You had mentioned in the past about writing a book on how to run an ecommerce store, is that still in the plans?
Otávio asks… (1:12:51)
– What do you think of martial arts? I’m fond of HEMA – Historical European Martial Arts.
– Do you play chess? Do you have any thoughts of it?
Nik asks… (1:14:05)
Vic, Whats up with your love affair with Joe Rogan?
Nate asks… (1:14:12)
Victor, I am looking into Shopify dropshipping as a potential online business. Is this a good online business type/model? You say blogging and podcasting are good, Amazon biz is bad. How does dropshipping figure in?
Bart asks… (1:14:48)
Hey Vic. Your podcast and blog are helping thousands of men. I’m one of them. Most won’t tell you that, by the way. So for every 1 who does, there are probably 500 or more who never lets you know.
Here are some questions that will help me and many others. I hope you’ll answer:
1. how long has it been since you last watched porn? This answer will help a lot of us who are struggle, knowing that it’s possible to quick the habit once and for all.
2. how long has it been since you’ve masturbated? (I was under the impression that it’s been a long time and that you were over the temptations until I heard episode 12, where you indicated you’ve struggled with the urge, but only recently experienced bliss with the urge being gone). Anyways, knowing that you’ve struggled has helped us, but knowing how long it’s been since you last masturbated could be a great encouragement to us all to know that there is hope based on someone’s real-life experience.
3. I’ve noticed a link between fasting (water only) and the reduction of the sex urge. For me, about the 3rd day of a water- only fast, the desire for porn, masturbation, and sex all leave the body. There is zero temptation. I’m wondering if the reason why your urge to masturbate has diminished recently has to do with eating one meal (your recent practice). What do you think? Obviously, something switched to remove the urge.
4. Finally, I’m going to start the carnivore diet (you inspired me) and found a farm nearby that sells grass-fed beef. You say you cook your meat on a grill. I’m wondering — how many steaks do you cook in one grill session? Do you do several steaks then put the left overs in the fridge to eat later or the next day? I’m asking because I want to manage the cooking time and not be overwhelmed with it or get bored with it. (I can’t imagine sustaining cooking 3 steaks at different times in a day.) I figure you have discovered a sustainable practice.
Thanks Vic. I look forward to your answers. You’re helping a lot of us.
