Audio Question from Alexander @ 00:17:14
Has embraced the high fat diet, stopped eating wheat, lost weight, and gotten faster – thanks to Ben, the website and the podcast. He has now signed up for an Ironman and is looking for advice on where to start with his swim training.
Audio Question from Cathy @ 00:23:55
Cathy has taken “Calm” magnesium in the past and it helped for sleeping. She took it again recently and it gave her a stomach ache and knocked her out (even the day after). It was the “Calm” brand with calcium and potassium. She is wondering if it is the different type of magnesium (glycinate vs citrate and ascorbate) or the addition of the calcium and potassium.
Audio Question from Debbie @ 00:034:32
I Debbie is wondering if cinnamon ceylon or cinnamon cassia is the best to use to increase insulin sensitivity and fat burning.
Audio Question from Glenn @ 00:38:38
Glenn wants to know if Omega 6 is a possible cause or contributor to inflammation. He has used a supplement that was a mix of 3, 6 and 9 in the past. He currently has some achilles tendinitis and when he switched to omega3 only, it felt better. Is now considering trying a 3, 6, 9 + plant sterol supplement but doesn't want to aggravate his inflammation.
~ In my response to Glenn, I mention a good source of cur cumin and lactoferrin: Capraflex.
Audio Question from Jason @ 00:46:54
He recently started the ketosis diet and on day 5 he woke up with a heart rate of 110bpm. He ate some carbs (candy) and it took care of it. He upped his carbs a bit but had the same issue on day 7. He is doing P90x and some bike riding. He did not workout the day before the high heart rate but he did have some vodka and soda.
~ In my response, I reference supplements that ease transition into Low Carb diet. I also recommend Natural Life Minerals.
Audio Question from Jennifer @ 00:52:15
She is wondering about returning to a workout schedule, after taking a break to deal with exercise induced amenorrhea – can you go back to your old schedule or will that just bring the issues back? She would like Ben to talk a little more about that “reset button”. She is also wondering if Ben has any books about marathon running along with the books he wrote on triathlon?
~ In the response to Jennifer, we talk about www.MarathonDominator.com.
Audio Question from Tim @ 00:58:57
Tim bought some Deep30 protein and noticed that it has 7 grams of sugar. He has been told that any positive effects of the protein would be negated by the sugar.
~ In is question, Tim mentions DEEP30.
