    How do you avoid emotional eating…especially now? w/ Adrienne Ngai, RD

    The world is packing a lot of fear and anxiety into every day right now. That can complicate anyone’s emotions (and diet). It's especially for those of us who tend to be emotional eaters.

    Is staying away from the foods we love most the only answer?
    Why do we connect certain activities with food?
    Can we uncover the underlying reasons for our emotional eating?

    What if that nagging pain is really something serious? w/Jacob Ross

What he thought was a pinched nerve turned out to be a dangerous, and potentially lethal, accumulation of fluid around his heart. He’s much better now, so we can ask: how could this have happened to a young, healthy guy?

Big Thumbs Up

Silent Mike and Mic out on a great slow that is entertaining and informative.

Tons of great guest speakers and good content. I highly recommend this podcast.

I tend to listen while food prepping a nice steak or while driving home from National Guard training to keep my head busy and focused on what I love most training, lifting and being a better business owner.

Thanks for providing such a great show with awesome content every week.

The Powercast crew are down to earth and really bring out the not so serious side of lifting, while bringing great content to the table every show.
