In this episode, I go over a concept that improved my life as a child. Once I realized nothing was holding me back, everything changed. Do you overestimate everyone successful around you? More importantly, do you feel you are incapable of the same success for yourself? If so, that needs to stop. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

In this episode, I dispel a few common nutrition myths that I see being thrown around far too often. Look, it's 2018 and the amount of quality fitness information available today is at an all-time high. We live in an amazing time for information. However, even though there is a lot of quality information, there is still a lot of bad information as well. As an average consumer, it can be really hard to decipher what is legit info and what is not.  That is where I come in. Sit back, relax and enjoy! 

A few topics I go over during the show...

*The concept of "superfoods" and "bad" foods.

*Why you don't need to be worried about the cholesterol in red meat and/or whole eggs. 

*How most people who train actually need more sodium, not less.

*Meal Frequency- 6 meals vs 3 meals per day, which is better?

*Do you need a "post workout shake"...why or why not?

*Are Low Carb Diets universally better than low-fat diets for fat loss?

and more...

In this episode, we bring Brandon Lilly back on for his second appearance on the show. We received so much positive feedback from the first episode, we had to do another one. Brandon is such a cool dude. We talked a lot about life, his "work don't whine" motto, how he overcame some dark times, and more. This is one of my favorite episodes. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

In this episode, I sit down with strength coach Zach Even-Esh. Zach is the founder of the Underground Strength Gym in New Jersey where he focuses on training high school wrestlers.

I wanted to upload it on a Monday so you can start your week off right. This might be the type of episode you listen to again down the road when you need another dose of inspiration.

Questions: 

Q1 Raymond: Hope all is well coach. Love the new podcasts you’ve been putting out! Question - if there was either one or a few pieces of information related to diet and training that you could have known in your early years, what would it be?

Q2 Nick:

  1. How to juggle kids and fitness: newborns, no sleep and finding energy or time to workout?
  2. How low can you take calories when you have a slow metabolism?
  3. Seems like everyone is doing keto now, why? 
  4. I feel like the fitness industry has gotten kind of flat, do you think it will bounce back?
  5. Do you think whiskey/alcohol has its place in a healthy lifestyle or fitness lifestyle?

Q3 Mark: I was wondering if you could address the best muscle-building foods, exercises, and supplements for specific body types? I am classified as an ectomorph and constantly struggle with getting the proper caloric intake with my exercise regime due to my busy work schedule.

Q4 Edwin: What would be your no. 1 best advice on how to start your own online coaching business?

Q5 Isaac: Wanted to ask how you remain confident in your knowledge in training/nutrition while retaining a sense of humility? This is especially since you get to interact with some of the leading experts in various fields. Phrased differently, how are you confident in what you say regarding training and nutrition, knowing that 'it depends' is often a preceding statement and there is always an expert who has a more refined or more 'correct' answer?

Q6 Chris: I'd be curious if you could talk about a how to deal with clients that struggle to stay on task. What strategies do you use to get your coaching clients to adhere to the program when they begin to fall off track?

Q7 Calvin: Hi I'm 15 and I workout at home with just a barbell, some weights and a squat and bench rack. I have been doing the Stronglifts 5x5 and was wondering if that is a good workout for building strength and muscle? Thanks.

In this episode, I go over a few tricks I use myself and with my clients to help increase adherence to a fat loss diet. Look, fat loss is hard. It doesn't matter what diet you on are, there comes a point where it becomes a struggle. Cravings, hunger, social events, etc. all make it hard to stay consistent. How you handle the adversity largely determines how successful you are on the diet. The key is to set the diet up in a way to make life easier for yourself. That is what this podcast is all about. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

In this episode, I sit down with Dr. Shawn Baker. Shawn follows a strict carnivore diet where he eats almost exclusively red meat. He has gained a lot of popularity lately after being on Joe Rogan's podcast. I wanted to bring him on the show to ask him some questions. What is the deal with micronutrients and fiber? Why not add in some fruits and vegetables? Can you build muscle/gain strength only eating meat? What are the benefits of red meat vs. other protein sources? This is a fascinating discussion on nutrition! I just ask you listen with an open mind and as always, try to take at least one thing from the episode. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
