    Ep 83. Josh Smith - flaws of the "tough love" approach

    In episode 83 of the Macabolic Podcast I was joined by Josh Smith who is the founder of Fortitude Nutrition Coaching and Hero Nutrition Mentoring to discuss why the “tough love” coaching approach where clients are shamed, and belittled for non-adherence and slips ups… Is bad for results, bad for business and an indication of flaws in the coaches ability… not the clients lack of discipline and motivation.

    EP 82. Alex Rodriguez - Is dieting just a recipe for an eating disorder?
     
    In episode 82 of the Macabolic Podcast I was lucky enough to be joined by @arod_nutritional for a chat about the link between wanting to change your body through nutrition and disordered eating risk.
     
    Is fat loss and dieting simply a recipe for an eating disorder, or is there more to it?
     
    Does the anti-diet movement have any valid points?
     
    How can you weigh up whether a fat loss goal will actually enhance your life?
     
    How might you reduce the risk of disordered tendencies if you want to achieve fat loss?
     
    And plenty more.
     
    A great episode, with a great man.
     
    Give it a listen and give the great man @arod_nutritional a follow.

    Ep 81. Tyson Brown - Nutrition call outs on social media and more

    In episode 81 of the Macabolic Podcast, I sit down with Tyson Brown to discuss nutrition and social media.
     
    A key topic we fleshed out was comparing and contrasting 3 different approaches to social media that nutrition professionals may take.
    1) Simply keeping to yourself.
    2) Constructive messages when you don’t agree with something.
    3) Aggressive call outs.
     
    Interestingly, benefits and instances when even aggressive calls out (full blown James Smith or Layne Norton style) might be of net benefit to all parties, was discussed.
     
    Great food for thought for nutrition professionals, influencers, nutrition enthusiasts, and even clients who follow various nutrition pages on social media.
     
    Of course Tyson also takes a dive into his history including how he got into nutrition, some key lessons learned along the way, and his 7 year PT journey at Fitness First Newtown.

    Ep. 79. Dr Zoya Huschtscha. Nutrition & training around the menstrual cycle & more.

    In episode 79 of the Macabolic Podcast I was lucky enough to be joined by a GOAT.
    Dr Zoya Huschtscha (@nourished_by_science ) is a 2x Arnold competitor, Victoria’s strongest women, a PhD researcher, AND an accredited sports dietitian. So yeh, a pretty impressive CV.
    We discuss…
    -Dr Zoya’s journey in sport and academia.
    -What got her into nutrition study, research and being a strongwomen athlete.
    -The cultural significance of food, and how it’s more than just fuel.
    -Her research in caffeine metabolism.
    -Her PhD research looking at training and nutrition interventions to help manage age related muscle loss in elderly populations.
    -Why and how sport and exercise research in females is limited.
    -Performance and nutrition, as it relates to the female menstrual cycle. The state of exisiting evidence and why it’s limited.
    -Why applying blanket, multi phase nutrition and training approaches to female clients based on their menstrual cycle is like throwing s**t at the wall, and hoping something sticks.
    Overall, a fantastic episode, that I’m sure you’ll gain some value from.
    Best, Mac
