Listener Q&A:

Now offering free 1 month membership to Ben's Body Transformation Club to the best questions!

Jess asks: I would never (ever!) use the Sodastream to make – well, soda – but I keep seeing it in stores and wonder if it might be a more economical option to quench my carbonated water thirst, as opposed to purchasing bottles of Pellegrino.  Can you think of any ways in which this device may be less optimal for one’s health than bottled sparkling water?  Or is it pretty much par for the course?

Billy asks: I am a hard gainer currently @ 168 and would like to get up to 185lbs.  My resting metabolic rate is 2700 calories.  What is the best approach and what are the best foods to eat to gain weight in a timely fashion.

baldzach asks via Twitter: @bengreenfield After exrciz you can eat what you want, sort of. How long does this effect last, what is the curve of its efficacy?

Graeme asks: I've been looking at gluten free bread options and was wondering what your opinion was on these breads and whether any if them had other issues other than gluten. I'm aware that toasting linseed bread has potential issues but no other view on others. Also, what is your opinion on Chyawanprash, how should I use it and is it good for a fast oxidizer?

Justin asks: My question is about expired supplements. Do powdered supplements such as whey protein or glutamine actually expire or is there a date on them because of food regulations? What about capsule supplements such as beta alanine or kre-alkaline?

Wenzel asks: What advantages/ disadvantages to have a daily intake of “Serrapeptase” in recovery, athletic performance, protein absorption, etc?  I'm hearing an increase of people at the gym talking about it and how they are able to recover quicker to have another hard workout the following day.

Daniel asks: What is the macronutrient composition set in grams per kg body weight for an average person (not a for sport maniac) trying to shed a few pounds (at moderate pace like max 0.5kg/week)? Is there any scientifically validated rule out there telling us how much % of kcal intake we should allocate per meal (breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, diner). The same question goes for the corresponding macronutrient composition breakdown per meal.

Michael asks: I think I have posterior shin splints that were caused by a long run that I did that I wasn't ready for. What is weird to me is that no matter if I run or not they still hurt the same. I have done a half-marathon and 5k since I have gotten injured and they didn't give me any trouble. I can do training runs, but the pain can be a little uncomfortable. I have heard you recommend topical magnesium on your podcast before as a natural anti-inflammatory and was wondering if that might be helpful in my case. Also, if you have any other recovery advise please let me know.
Thanks

Tony asks: I'm struggling to find an easily bought dairy free/ soy free milk alternative in the UK. You really are spoilt in the US for choice. Rice milk I find high in sugar in the UK. Could you check the ingredient list on Kara dairy free coconut based milk replacement and see if you think it's a healthy option. Here is the website: www.karadairyfree.com/

Glen asks: My passion is bodybuilding, the natural way. Saw on your pacific fit site that you have competed in bodybuilding and want your recommendations for my 1st competition in the buckeye natural contest in april 2011. What is your opinion, thoughts, comments on the bod pod accuracies and how it relates to calipers?

Anonymous asks: I have had low testosterone for a number of year now stemming from my eating disorder.  I recently had my levels tested and here were my results:

Testosterone: 95
FSH: 5.2
UH: 1.8

My doctor just sent me this print out, however, and didn't discuss what these numbers mean.  Could you help me understand what they mean and how low they are?  I know I've asked before, but do you think these results stem from having too low a body fat, too low a body weight, over-training, or something else entirely?  I have definitely noticed higher levels when body weight was higher and I had more muscle on me. Any tips for increasing my overall levels?

Mike asks: Are you familiar with Nutritional Response Testing, and if so what are your thoughts on it?

    Hey Ben – On a totally different subject, this is something that I've been meaning to ask for a while. What is the music that is playing at the end of this podcast? I hear it at the end of alot of your podcasts, and I've always been curious as to what it is.
    Thanks!

    1. totally depends. some of it is royalty free stuffy from PodSafe Music Network. I think title of this last one was "Shetland"

  2. Cynthia says:

    Ben – In your response to Michael, who had a question about shin splints, you mention getting hour-long sessions of intensive massage therapy/soft tissue bodywork on the calves and shins. As a bodyworker, while I absolutely agree with deep tissue work being beneficial in this instance, an hour-long session just focused on the calves and shins may be too much. If there is inflammation involved, the duration (combined with intensity) of the work may aggravate the inflammation. A good deep tissue/sports massage therapist should have a good sense of how much deep tissue work is enough and how much would be too much in a given session. They should also be able to help with facilitated stretching of tight muscles and strengthening of weak muscles, along with breaking up adhesions and helping to alleviate fascial restrictions. All of that combined might take an hour, but an hour of just deep tissue work could very well be too much.
