Featured Topic: “The Last Diet You'll Ever Need – Part 2”

Super Health Diet bookTo listen to Part 1 of this series, click here. Unlike other self-help and dieting books, The Super Health Diet, by best-selling author KC Craichy, compares popular tactics used by Americans such as weight loss centers and mainstream dieting plans, and tackles the topic of prescriptions, pills and procedures.

In The Super Health Diet Craichy provides readers with a wealth of clear, concise information for his Super Health Diet, which is based on his scientifically proven “Four Corners of Superfood Nutrition.” He also covers the dynamic role of proteins in weight loss; anti-aging benefits of eating the Four Corners way; meal frequency, snacks and eating speed; exercise, weight loss and health.It is highly recommended that you listen to a two-part free audio interview below, which Ben Greenfield conducted with KC Craichy.

What are the four corners of Superfood Nutrition?

You talk about consuming high antioxidant foods in your book. What is your take on recent research suggesting that may not be ideal for some people?

What is the role of protein in weight loss?

What is your “stealth technique” of preloading with essential amino acids?

What is AGE, and why is it in your book?

Do you think we should eat several small meals per day? If so, why or why not?

You have a chapter on exercise in this book. What does your workout routine look like?

In the book, you mention the “SuperHealth 7 Tiger Moves”. What are they?

You finish with 7 Golden Keys to Weight Optimization. Can you give a brief overview of each?

Listener Q&A:

====================================== [contact-form 3 “AskBen”] ======================================

Kelcey asks: I recently saw a write-up on a new foam roller called the “rumble roller.” It has little bumps on it as opposed to just a smooth rolling surface, and this is supposed to make this foam roller superior to a conventional roller. I was wondering if you had seen this roller or had any thoughts about it. Also, one of my physical therapists made me roll immediately before and after run workouts, but another source said it was better to wait several hours to roll (i.e. roll in the evening if you did a morning workout) to “allow time for lactic acid to accumulate.” Is there a better time to roll than another, and are there times when I should not roll because it might hinder performance, or for some other reason?

Mer asks: I started taking Udo's oil. I feel like it's making my skin break out a bit. Is this possible. It has happened to me when I increased fish oil intake as well, but I thought it was an old wives tale that using more oil would make your skin break out. I haven't really changed anything else and I swear it seems like a trend.

Mike asks: At the beginning of the year I did the hydrostatic weighing and was told to have 10.2% bodyfat @ 204 lbs. I got tested with the Bod Pod today. I came in at 17.4% bodyfat @ 207.4 lbs. I haven't changed my training much (4days weights, 2 days cardio) or diet in the past 3 months. Which test should be more accurate?

David asks: Is it really possible to physically shrink your stomach by eating less?

Kara asks: What are your thoughts on the effectiveness of Vitargo S2 and/or Karbolyn as a carbohydrate source for pre, during and post workout. Based on the high molecular weight of these products, they claim to “vacuum” nutrients to the muscles, provide improved glycogen replenishment and eliminate gi distress based on the rapid gastric emptying. Is there any validity to this? Do you feel these are more effective carbohydrate sources than maltodextrin like CarboPro?

Jenny asks: I was wondering what your opinion is of frozen meals. I used to eat a Spa Cuisine Lean Cuisine for lunch several days a week but now only eat frozen meals if necessary for convenience. I also sometimes buy the Kashi brand frozen meals. What is your opinion on eating these brands of meals and frozen meals in general for convenience at lunch? Are there any specific ingredients in frozen meals to watch out for and avoid?

Matt asks: My stomach/digestion needs a couple hours to process breakfast. … so I just eat a banana, coffee & water and then start my training session for 1.5 to 4 hours eating & drinking as I do it and then getting protein right after I finish. I need my sleep & can't imagine waking up to eat breakfast and then going back to bed each Sunday morning. With the fasting workout strategy that you have mentioned for 30 to 60 minutes workouts, Will the technique I use (no breakfast before a long training session) be fine? – I want to avoid cannibalizing muscle, etc. … and weight loss is not my goal, though it wouldn't be bad to lose a couple pounds.

Lou asks: My daughter had her colon removed a year ago due to an illness. With absence of her colon her digestion has to occur rapidly and in a shorter time frame.She is a photography major, her day is full of activity, moving gear, etc.  She also works in retail 20 hours a week and rides a bike to get around. If she was your daughter, which products would you recommend to complement/enhance her nutrition?

    I just hit the $17 button as well. I have been listening to your podcasts for a couple of years and would miss them if they weren't available. I am also a medium…. Just ran my first 1/2 marathon and am gearing up for my first 1/2 ironman later this summer.

  2. Here is my SuperGreens recipe:

    2 Scoops SuperGreens
    4oz Coconut Milk
    1 Teaspoon Almond Butter
    Dash Cinnamon
    For added crunch: 1/2 Packet Cocochia Snack Mix
    For added chocolatey flavor: 1 teaspoon carob powder

    Hi Ben wondering what you thought of the eat 3 times and day that Mr Craichy spoke of vs the eat when hungry approach. especially for endurance athlete.

    Thanks Jason

    1. Jason – I had the opportunity to interview KC as well and read his latest book. Chapter 13 where he talks about 3 meals a day caught my attention too as I'm an endurance cyclist. I've completed 9 double centuries over the last few years and many long century+ rides.

      I've been trying 3 meals a day and for the most part it is working out. I think the big thing here is getting in enough protein during each meal. I find that on days when I go long this is tough. First off I usually don't eat a breakfast or lunch as I'm on the bike munching. I'll have a recovery drink when I get home with something afterwards. Then I will have a well rounded dinner.

      All of us are different and it is trial and error. I just got the meal replacement drink from Living Fuel and will be trying that in the upcoming weeks.

      What kind of endurance events are you doing?

      Tony

  4. Chuck says:

    Ben,
    I thought this was a great podcast and very interesting. With everything said and that you've read in the book, was there anything that you did not agree with? Just curious!

    And I will definitely be donating to the show.

    Chuck

  5. Mike says:

    Hey Ben,

    Thanks for the good work! Sorry to hear that the podcast is costing so much…but that's also a good thing, right? I just used the link to donate $17…hope that works for going towards the podcast as well.
    I'll gladly wear a size MED "…EAT MORE FAT" shirt to the gym if you'd like to send one my way!
    Mike
