Audio statement from Craig @ 00:12:48
After a lot of self-experimenting, he has sorted out his morning nutrition: he eats a banana and 5 MAP, does his workout, then fries some pemmican and eggs in coconut oil. He's middle aged, 145lbs, 5'11” and that works for him.
Audio Question from 30secs @ 00:15:56
On last week's show Ben talked about 30 second bursts of exercise, with a 4 minute rest, done 5 times. What type of exercises would you recommend? Something that doesn't require equipment and can be done almost anywhere. Would Burpees work?
~ In my response, I mention the SetStarter and discount code “10percent”.
Audio Question from Dan @ 00:19:53
He is looking to get a GPS watch. What do you think is the best or best value watch (with HRM)? Does he need an altimeter?
~ In my response, I mention www.dcrainmaker.com.
I also mention this video on interval training with the Timex Run Trainer:
And this video on pace setting with the Timex Run Trainer:
Audio Question from Donna @ 00:24:47
She's heard lots of talk about the Green Coffee Bean being some sort of fat burner. Wants to know what your take is on that? She drinks regular coffee (espresso) but has never tried the green coffee.
~ In my response to Donna, I mention the new MPX100.
Audio Question from Jane @ 00:30:05
She is 45-years-old and has been following the Paleo eating plan for a couple months now. She would like to do a half marathon next year but has no idea how to go about that or how to change her eating to optimize for energy and endurance.
~ In my response to Jane, I mention www.lowcarbtriathlete.com
Audio Question from Keerthi @ 00:34:39
He's looking for ways he can add lean body mass without adding body fat percentage. He needs recommendations on micro-nutrient ratio, timing, how many extra calories to eat in order to put on at least 10 lbs of lean body mass.
~ In my response to Keerthi, I mention this Get Fit Guy article.
Audio Question from Rob @ 00:42:19
He plans on training for his first Ironman. He's never done any endurance sport (longest run is 6 miles, swim 3 laps of an olympic pool, bike is 10 miles). He is pretty fit and in shape. Is 200lbs, 13% body fat. Plays basketball and does HIIT. He is a vegetarian. He is thinking of using the “Tri-Dominator” plan for his Ironman training. Do you think that is a good place to start for his first Ironman. He doesn't just want to race he wants to compete! Also, do you have any suggestions on where to get some affordable training gear?
Audio Question from Tony @ 00:48:26
He is a “lacto-ovo pescatarian” and has IBS. He is trying to go low carb but his dinners (which are out of his control – made by his wife) tend to be higher carb. Is he doing more damage than good having 2 of 3 meals low carb? Especially if he is doing higher fat in the first 2 meals. Due to his IBS he can't do coconut milk or eggs. He follows the “Low Carb for Triathlete” book. He tends to eat a lot of yogurt and almond butter for breakfast but that is getting old.
~ In my response I mention: the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, 2-4 scoops CapraColostrum per day, 4-6 drops oil of oregano per day, 1-3x/day, Hydrochloric acid – start at 1 and work up to 5-7x650mg/day (I recommend NOW Foods Betaine HCL). If H. Pylori, include 2-3 capsules mastic gum per day (I recommend Jarrow Formulas Mastic Gum). 1-2 servings of Bitters per day (I recommend Floradix Herbal Bitters). If urinary tract infection, try D-Mannose – 2-3g/day (I recommend NOW Foods D-Mannose). If you need to eat a meal that is “toxic”, like farm-raised meat, fish, etc. eat activated charcoal immediately prior. Also www.thedietdominator.com and my pesca-ovo vegetarian plan on TrainingPeaks.
