In this podcast I respond to a couple listener questions I got last week.
Find out my opinion on a high protein + saturated fat diet for hormone production and overall health.
While I'm not a strong advocate of ANY SPECIFIC WAY OF DIETING INDEFINITELY, this diet has its advantages and disadvantages with me.
A lot of it depends on whether or not a trainee is in a stable hormonal environment where they can produce the most testosterone possible.
There are times when I add more carbs to the diet and other times where I think a low-carb diet combined with high protein and saturated fat is a good idea.
Bodybuilding is all about taking 2 steps back to take another step forward, a low carb-diet can be used to gain more muscle by resetting your insulin sensitivity.
But the proper steps need to be taken in order to make this diet work efficiently with your weight training and recovery!
Everyone is different and what works for one person may not work as well for another. But one thing is for sure, carbs usually start coming out in some way, shape, or form as a physique becomes leaner and leaner.
Now, to what degree they get pulled is very much person-to-person specific!
I also talk briefly about stress management and some ways to deal with stress. Often times it helps take a step back and look at the whole picture on what is stressing you out!
Thanks again to all my listeners and followers out there!
