What Is The Best Way To Eat Eggs?
Andrew asks: He is following a hypertrophy diet right now and is eating 4 eggs cooked in coconut oil every day for breakfast. He likes his eggs scrambled but has heard that scrambling eggs can introduce oxygen that along with the heat from cooking, can oxidize the cholesterol in the eggs and create free radicals that are detrimental to health. What is the best way to eat eggs?
Gelatin vs. Collagen
Gelatin asks: He is wanting to use something other than bone broth to heal his gut. Which would be the best substitute: Great Lakes Gelatin, Great Lakes Hydrolyzed Collagen or Upgraded Collagen. What would be the differences? Is there any truth to Dave Asprey's claims that his collagen is produced in a way that leaves the peptides intact and provides more collagen than bone broth.
Better Sleep for New Mothers
Jenn asks: She just had a baby 6 weeks ago (and also has a 2 year old). Needless to say she is not getting good sleep at night and is not able to nap during the day. Is there anything she can take/do at night to help the little sleep she does get be more restorative? Or is there something she can use during the day to have more energy?
Foam Roller 101
Joe asks: His personal trainer has been telling him to foam roll but he finds it very painful. His trainer says it will get easier and hurt less with time. What is your opinion and how/why does it get easier and less painful?
Germs on Water Fountains
KJ asks: What is more sanitary? The water fountain or the water faucet at the gym? He has heard that you shouldn't drink out of a water fountain but is it any more sanitary to use the faucet in the locker room instead?
