Hello friendly friends.
I'm very happy to announce that the B&D Podcast is growing very quickly.
The response from you the listener has been tremendous.
Because of your terrific questions this episode comes in at nearly 2 hours.
Many of these topics could have been entire podcasts on their own and because of the great questions, I had to give many of them a proper amount of attention.
In the last episode we discussed the importance of ancient esoteric texts, the carnivore diet, and the shocking reality of demons.
In this episode we will discuss the meaning of life, God and religion, the traits of a great man, and many other topics.

“I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. All ideologies are idiotic, whether religious or political, for it is conceptual thinking, the conceptual word, which has so unfortunately divided man. The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear. If we can really understand the problem, the answer will come out of it, because the answer is not separate from the problem. If you begin to understand what you are without trying to change it, then what you are, undergoes a transformation. We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free. Freedom from the desire for an answer is essential to the understanding of a problem. Tradition becomes our security, and when the mind is secure it is in decay. A man who is not afraid is not aggressive, a man who has no sense of fear of any kind is really a free, a peaceful man.”-Jiddu Krishnamurti
From the last episode, Joe asks… (6:45)
What do you believe the meaning of life is?
Bruce asks… (12:12)
Victor, you’ve accomplished so much in your life (best blog on the planet, greek god physique, boat loads of money, seen the world) – could you describe what life is like at the top? Where do you go once you have it all? Essentially, what is your purpose now? More of the same? To keep growing ? (as many accomplished people do – as they say the journey is the destination), or does your life now hold a a different purpose ? Asking because you were one of my childhood heroes. I voraciously read your blog in my early teens and it forever changed and shaped my life.
Alex asks… (17:27)
Victor, you’re wired for success. Were you always this way? Or did you take steps to change your mindset? What’s your take on affirmations and programming the subsconcious mind? Do you believe that the repetition of affirmations programs the subsconcious mind and changes a persons drive and behavior?
JP asks… (20:45)
Thank you for answering my questions. Yes, socialism is a tool of control. It’s very opposite to their message “Everybody is equal and all stuffs are free here (PS. – there’s no free lunch in the world)”. To me, capitalism is the only system so far that can truly pull people out of poverty – if, … IF they work their out of it.
How about you Uncle Vic? You said that all -isms are part of the agenda of those who try to control us. So what do you think of capitalism? Do you think it does serve the people or it is also used by the “elites” (like the Illuminati, if you would) to control the masses?
See: Hegelian dialectic
Also, I have another question regarding bodybuilding: If a man worked out on a gym for years, and for whatever reason, he decides to stop working out on the gym and instead do body weight exercises ALONE, will these exercises sustain the muscles he built from lifting weights?
Hozzy asks… (22:51)
McGregor or Nurmagomedov; who you got and why?
Roberto asks… (22:51)
Connor or Khabib Vic? I wanna put some money in this fight. Still with doubts.
R.H. asks… (23:35)
Do you think taking music lessons is a good idea for adults? Or do you perfer self-learning it from books and the Internet? Can you share with us your experience and thoughts on learning the guitar and writing music?
Om asks… (24:53)
Besides investing in one’s own blog do you ever recommend investing elsewhere? Whats your go-to guide for this?
(26:06) How did you come to your current religious beliefs? Was there something you read or that happened that really stood out? Trying to learn the truth without being bias my family is very extreme Christian and they are obviously bias in their thinking.
Black Mar asks… (36:24)
Vic, what’s your opinion on the Existence of “God”? If there is a God would you want to know about Him/Her and would you obey the Will of your Creator God or choose to do your own thing in life?
Jason asks… (41:19)
How can you get more grounded and in touch with your body, as opposed to being stuck in your head all the time and zoning out?
Joseph asks… (43:16)
What are the main traits of a great man?
What are the possessions that you travel with? How can someone minimize their expenses and possessions to live more freely?
What are some masculine hobbies that you recommend or partake in?
What are your views on video games and media?
Luis asks… (51:23)
What do you think about the workout call Convict Conditioning?
Pat asks… (52:35)
I was wondering if you had any knowledge about midwestern grass fed beef. I agree with eliminating corn and antibiotics from our beef that we eat, however, how do you have grass fed beef from areas like Illinois where I’m from? I grew up on a farm in central Illinois and in the spring and summer our cows could graze our pasture on grass only. In the fall however, as the grass died off for the winter season, we fed them hay and corn. The hay simply didn’t fill them up from what I recall. Could we have done something different instead of the corn?
Alex P. asks… (54:31)
What are your thoughts on Human Growth Hormone?
Gerasimos asks… (54:42)
Do you fear flying on an airplane? Either way, how does somebody overcome that fear?
Leo asks… (56:12)
I’ve never been a follower, but also never a leader. Mostly a lone wolf, I’ve had a tight circle of friends for the longest time I can remember. How can I transition from the lone wolf mentality to one where I am able to bring people to me and have them see me as a leader? What I’ve been doing so far is being more proactive in conversations, but additional advice would be appreciated.
Egi asks… (58:43)
How do you manage your money? Especially at the time when you don’t have a lot of it.
Adrian asks… (59:36)
I have a question if you still drink distilled water? I do not trust water supply cleaning, nor pipping materials.
GettingStronger asks… (1:01:43)
If you can’t afford grassfed meat, is it still better to get cheap meat which is pumped with antibiotics etc. or is vegetarian superior to cheap meat?
Sachin asks… (1:02:26)
Is it possible to thrive as a vegetarian? Pretty sure veganism = death but I know plenty of very healthy vegetarians who live long lives and are full of energy (eating yoghurt and eggs). The healthiest people I know are pescatarians-lean, mean, and they preen because they’re smart, healthy, and very flexible. Red meat seems to weigh you down, I feel heavy, and abandoned it. I felt decent as a pescatarian and at my best as a lacto-ovo veggie. Do you think there’s a genetic component? I am Indian.
NOTE: Average lifespan in India = 68.35 years
(1:05:45) If you have kids will it be with Missus Pride? I support you and will wish for your happiness regardless of which path u go, but I have friends with mix race children and the children are confused and the parents are deep down sad their kids don’t look like them. Plus there is an anti-white agenda. Not judging you, just passing on some thoughts as a reader who cares!
Jason asks… (1:07:44)
What is your advice to a 20 year old who has $10,000 saved and has no liabilities or debts?
Mister Stockholm asks… (1:08:17)
I was born and raised in Sweden. I have a education in construction engineering and have worked as a supervisor at an international construction company for 1 year. I do not like Sweden and do not want to start a a family here for many reasons. (I am 25 y/old) Now to the important point: I want to move back to my roots (Middle East / North Africa). I am really tired of Sweden and want to create something over there and leave the “9-5 jive”. I have my education in Construction engineering and 9500$ saved on my bank-account. Since education is free from Sweden i have no debt and can leave the country when I want. Do you have some suggestions and important advice for me? Feel free to speak and keep up the good work!
Luke asks… (1:12:38)
I am interested in starting a podcast to accompany my blog as well. Could you give us a run down of equipment needed, how to get onto iTunes, SoundCloud, and other media outlets? Also any potential start up costs and what program you use to record and edit.
Rushay asks… (1:13:18)
I currently reside in India, no doubt we try to copy the western cultures, truth is I'm living with my parents who don't have idea what they are doing. They told me to dropout from my college. But luckily somehow I managed to get my degree as I don't want any problems related to visa in future. Truth is they have control over my money. I was want to move to another country, can you recommend how do I change my life?. Thanks for taking your time, really appreciate it.
Tshepang asks… (1:14:12)
Hi Vic. I’m 20 years old, and I’m currently living with my father who pays for everything in the house while I go to college. My question is how to not bullshit your father, and furtherance to it is how to deal with a sociopath who happens to be my father. My only wish is for my father to develop health standards. Health is the first relationship you have with yourself before anyone else, and achieving happiness is having to move from result-oriented to process-oriented. (My dad is really opposite to me). I truly get it that old dogs can’t learn new tricks as old habits die hard. And very much likely to have acknowledged that the world is made out of actions because life is what we make it out to be.
Lee asks… (1:15:40)
I am 22 years old. I have a family history and a long grueling history myself with digestive issues. I’ve gotten all the tests done and they all point to IBS (no cure), poor digestion, and stress. A lot of people suggest a have suggested a vegetable based diet, but I do not feel good and fulfilled on that diet and it causes more stomach issues. What diet do you suggest, and do you have any books or resources available to learn more about the diet?
Samgar asks… (1:19:20)
Victor, what happens we die? do you think there is an afterlife? Does the soul continue to exist in some way? Does it disperse into the universe? Or do we simply cease to exist?
Alex P. asks… (1:21:05)
What’s the best way to drive traffic to your products sales page. I link to my products within and at the end of my articles I also advertise them on the primary sidebar of my blog. Is that too much advertising? Is there anything else you would recommend, or should I just continue creating content to increase traffic and sales.
Also, I noticed you dropped your eBook prices by a penny. I’ve read that prices ending in “99” do better. Have you seen a significant difference in sales since making the change in price?
MoneyStudy asks… (1:22:20)
How do you explain to guys that blue collar and “trade schools” aren’t the answer? I swear that’s the only advice for young, masculine men online. Blue collar jobs are slavery in a hard hat instead of a cubicle in my opinion, entrepreneurship is where it’s at.
Joel asks… (1:24:13)
What is your take on EMF exposure with wifi, phones, etc? Is it something that could be damaging our potential as humans?
Do yourself a favor and google these words: SMART METER – and see what kind of problems are you are facing every day.
Paull asks… (1:25:32)
Hey Vic, I have a simple but important question-what is your blood type? My health got way better after reading and following the blood type diet book. Based on how well you do with meat, I’d guess you’re B or O. Cheers!
Lucas asks… (1:26:24)
What were the first sources of traffic for B&D?
Dan asks… (1:26:48)
Hello Victor, do you still recommend taking beef liver tablets and zinc?
Alex G. asks… (1:28:01)
What are your thoughts about settling with an Eastern European woman in Thailand or South East Asia away from the western corruption of the traditional family? It’s cheap there, great climate, and plenty to do. I have some friends from Russia who live in Koh Samui Thailand and they already have two kids and life is good. Obviously money and work needs to be secured outside of Thailand ie working online or being sponsored by an overseas company.
RP asks… (1:30:43)
I notice you don’t sell all of your books on Amazon. Is there a reason for this?
Nick Hagood asks… (1:32:24)
My question relates to martial arts. I started boxing a little over four months ago and absolutely love it. Fighting has brought a deeper level of focus back to my game. Which martial arts have you trained, and do you still actively practice any of them? I’m currently focused on boxing, and a little kickboxing, with the intentions of adding in BJJ down the line. What are your favorites?
Silo asks… (1:33:32)
What do you think about vaccines? Are they bullshit or are they good for us? I haven’t had a flu shot or vaccine since I was 15 years old and I’m now 24. It’s very rare that I get sick compared to other people who regularly get these shots.
Karlssen asks… (1:36:10)
Do you still take Modafinil? Why or why not?
GettingStronger asks… (1:37:25)
What do you think about videogames?
Chris asks… (1:37:53)
You’ve touched on addiction before, but can you give a definitive solution to someone who is addicted to anything: cigarettes, caffeine, pills, etc.?
John asks… (1:41:03)
How to break porn/masturbation addiction?
Vaios asks… (1:43:16)
Do you ever notice that you lose momentum and slowly divert back to old habits you try to avoid ? Like for example slowly stop going to the gym and watching more TV as you used to previously. If so, what is the process you personally use to ground yourself once again and stay on the right path? Sometimes it seems that I sprint into the right direction and take many rests in between instead of moving towards my goals at a steady pace.
First: Im at a crossroads wether I A) work part time as a freelancer for 3-4 years to make money while my blog is growing or b) give up freedom for 1 entire year to work a high income, high stress contracting job, then quit cold turkey to live off savings. This seems more time efficient, perhaps I could invest part of my savings like in the book: the richest man in Babylon. What would you do in this situation Victor?
(1:46:41) Second: I’m underweight already. Include carbs to reach calories or just go carnivore regardless? I’m tired of being skinny even though I always get told in the gym I am strong for my size.
(1:49:19) Third question: The only butter I can access is pasteurized. Still better than carbs? Now that carnivore is on the rise, veganism will be exposed for the false idol it is.
Hercules asks… (1:49:56)
Would you consider yourself tolerant? My friends say about me there are only two opinions my and wrong. When I am drunk I am very tolerant but sober I get murderous thoughts quite often.
“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.” – Aristotle
Alex J. asks (1:51:23)
Hey Victor, just want to say I bought Body of a Spartan and it’s awesome. I stopped by the book store the other day and found the art of the deal. I read the first few pages and realized how much time I and most people waste. What are things you have changed in your life to save valuable time?
Damon asks… (1:52:29)
I know you’ve gone into this before but can explain how I can gain weight by eating three meals per day as a skinny guy with s fast metabolism. Do I not need to count calories?
Alex asks… (1:53:12)
Have you used an air fryer to cook meat? I hear good things and am considering purchasing one.
George asks… (1:53:40)
I hear and read everywhere to drink as much water as possible. Anytime I drink big amounts of water, I find myself visiting the bathroom constantly. For example, if I drink half a litre of water after I wake up, I will probably go to the bathroom at least 2 times in the next hour. But when I don’t drink water I feel the dehydration, a bit of bad mood, etc Do you have any tips and reliable advice about this topic
Zac asks… (1:54:36)
Now that you aren’t drinking raw goats milk, How do you get your electrolytes and hydration in? Whenever I’ve done a Keto diet I’ve had no choice but to resort to drinking glasses of potassium powder and salt water, otherwise I’d experience a drained droopy feeling throughout the day. I’d love to hear your successful alternative, I know I’m not the only one experiencing this issue.
Sebastian Heart asks… (1:56:36)
Victor, Thanks for your great in-depth reply to my question regarding spirits. I have been thinking about your answer for the whole day yesterday and I have a follow up question. Let me give you and the readers some background.
I am now 25 but 5 years ago when I was 20 I used to be drinking a lot of alcohol with this buddy of mine. You could perfectly describe us as ‘devils’ when we were drinking and we would take things to extremes during the nightlife. I very well resonate with the description that you gave where alcohol opens up the mind to spirits and beings because I would do and say things that I normally wouldn’t to other people.
I also developed a skin rash 5 years ago that I am still trying to get rid of. After some research I found out it is a yeast infection called candida albicans, and it became worse when I visitied Vietnam in 2015 (also got vaccinated then which might have aggrevated it). Right now diet and antifungals are a good way to reduce symptoms and slowly cure the infection.
After your description of Earthbound spirits being able to hold onto sick and weak bodies and also being able to enter minds under the influence of alcohol a chord struck me that maybe I have some Earthbound spirits in me. The reason I am telling you this is that for quite some time I would envision horrible scenes and pictures in my mind when I would close my eyes. I would see suffering and demons and death. And I am completely sober for two years now btw because alcohol flares up my eczema. But I see these demonic images and combined with all this eczema and yeast I figured that maybe I have some Earthbound spirits in my body that are causing all this. I have been also quite sombre and negative in the past (although this is changing) but now that you talked about this yesterday I was wondering if you also know a way to get rid of Earthbound spirits?
My apologies for the long text you can shorten it of course of give a closer description for the next podcast. I wanted to give you some background. I am completely off alcohol and drugs now for three years and exercising everyday. Still my eczema and candida are not completely gone. Please help.
Topic for the next episode…
How do we do an exorcism?
Until next time.
