Welcome! (& An Article List)

If you’re over-worked, over-stressed, and “under-healthed”, you’ve come to the right place haha 😛

Welcome! My name’s Ankur Ambastha (pronounced “Encore”) and I’m a Food, Fitness, & Mindset Coach.

^^ That’s me, hello! 🙂

I’ve been coaching busy, driven people for 8 years to conveniently eat healthier, move more (in fun ways) to look & feel fantastic, and manage work+life & mindset to fully enjoy life.

And I want all of that for you too, so I can’t wait for you to dig into the articles I’ve written for you below!

But, before that, if you want to really boost your progress immediately…

If you want my best stuff that I only share with my most dedicated readers, make sure to join my Inner Circle here:

How To Crush Your Goals In 2020

Note: this was originally an Inner Circle email, but I reposted it here (with an added intro) so you don’t miss out on making 2020 your most successful year yet!


Think about this for a second…how many times have you set goals in the past, or set New Year’s Resolutions, and failed to actually achieve them?

It sucks doesn’t it? And you’ve already heard all the statistics before, including that less than 1 in 10 people feel that they were successful in achieving their resolutions (Inc.com).

But, that doesn’t have to include you this year.

You don’t have to waste another 365 days, repeating past failed years & feeling even worse by the end of 2020.

You can succeed this year, I believe in you.

If you start the year off right, you can be blown away by the progress you make this year.

And to help get you started on the right foot, take my quick 5 minute challenge to make sure your goals are powerful enough and that you’re ready to make 2020 the year that you take control of your days, and habits, once and for all.

Ready? Awesome, let’s do this…


Happy New Year!

This’ll be a very quick email to get you ready to crush your goals in 2020!

But first, HELLO!

You know I had to send you a quick nature pic haha! That’s me saying hi 😛

I hope you had a fantastic 2019 and are ready to kick some major butt in 2020!!!

So, to get you started kicking, let’s dive right in with your challenge for today!

How To Confront Your Health Barriers & Get What You Want [Video]

Note: This is an email (and video below) that I sent to members of my Inner Circle for a challenge of the week. I’m posting it publicly here so it has a chance to challenge & impact you also (and so you can get a teaser about the fun stuff I send weekly to my Inner Circle).

BUT, it’s not what you want to hear, it’s what you need to hear.

My Inner Circle is full of highly motivated people who are constantly challenging themselves and working to improve their lives, so I know they were ready for it.

Are you ready to confront your health barriers and get what you want also?

If you’re ready to finally leap-frog over your health barriers just like them, then here we go…


We need to talk (you might want to sit down for this).

Ever since we started this relationship, there’s been an elephant in the room.

That looks like a pretty cool elephant…we owe it to him to address this.

What To Do To Get Healthy The Simple Way

Here We Go…

Imagine you go to Google and search: “What should I do to get more healthy?”

And you get back: “You need to do these 101 things every single day of your life or else you’ll never, ever reach your goals. Number 1 is…”

Woh, that’s harsh haha. I’d probably just turn around crying, ready to run away because that answer SUCKED.

OK, I’m exaggerating a tad, but seriously, check out the search results for “what to do to get healthy”…

Screenshot-of-get-healthy-search-results
AHHHHHHHH, stop it!!! Are you kidding me!?!?

Look at that last one! Seriously!?!?! :'(

Let’s be honest, the Internet is amazing and can teach you anything you would ever want to know, including how to ride a unicycle while balancing a red ball on your nose like a seal, but…

When it comes to health: the Internet is a jungle.

And that’s putting it politely considering the sheer amount of tips, tricks, and top 1,000 lists floating around out there.

I’m getting a panic attack just looking at “The 101 Best Things to Do for Your Body Now!”

That kind of stuff makes me want to lock all my doors and just sit in my room crying. All. Day.

It’s overwhelming, de-motivational, and completely unnecessary.

The truth is that you don’t have to carry around a list in your pocket of the 101 things you have to do today (or else risk dying from a lack of health) like a lot of articles on the Internet might lead you to believe.

It’s a lot more simple than that as long as you have the right lens to decide between healthy and unhealthy choices.

When Eating Out ISN’T Convenient Or Even Good Tasting

The Foodie’s Wonderland!

YUM! Imagine having 478 places to get burgers, pizza, ice cream, fast food, or whatever food your stomach desires…all walking distance from you!

You could satisfy every single food craving you will ever have in your entire lifetime, with just a 5 minute walk.

Extend that to the entire city and you have 25,462 food places…

OVER TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND!?!?!

AND, imagine having that while you’re on VACATION!

Ooooooo, that sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it?

That’s exactly the foodie’s dream that I’m living right now, in Los Angeles, CA, for 4 days, and out of all the infinite options I have, this was the first meal I ate…

Here Comes The Crazy…
