The surprising similarities between fitness and finance

The surprising similarities between fitness and finance

2 things that surprised me:
1. How powerful compound interest is
2. Actual portion sizes of peanut butter, almonds, and rice!

Over the past 15 years, I’ve spent a lot of time learning about fitness, food, and finance. There are some similarities among them:
– We don’t track per calories/ spending
– We eat more than we know/ spend more…
– We debate minutiae about IF, keto, Whole 30… just like we debate interest rates and random stocks
– We value anecdotal advice and quacks like Dr. Oz…just like we listen to our friends and family members (who have never learned about personal finance)

I talk about them in today’s Fireside Chat!

    Sir, the volume of almost all videos is very less. Even at home with the birds chirping during lock down I am not able to hear you.. It just disappoints me as I can’t gain knowledge without listening.. Request you to please use mic if possible ?

    Hi Ramit, would appreciate if you used a mic in your videos from now on. Really valuable advice, thanks ?

    Hey, great video and comparison.
    What was the name of the book you mentioned at the beginning of the video?
