    Sleep Debt, The Circadian Rhythm & Why Sleep Staging Doesn't Matter With Jeff Kahn - 20 Minutes Fitness Episode #267 (2021)

    Are you having trouble sleeping? Do you feel tired and low on energy during the day? Well, you came to the right place then, because this week on the 20 Minute Fitness podcast we are bringing back our conversation with Jeff Kahn, the Co-Founder & CEO of RISE.

    RISE is an app that creates useful insights for people to improve their sleep to become the best version of themselves. Jeff studied engineering at Northwestern University, but as he and his Co-Founder became intrigued by sleep, they got into their school's sleep science department as apprentices. Their goal from there on was to figure out how they could take all the consumer sleep science data and turn it into useful insights for people, which is what led to the building of RISE.
    Press play to learn about sleep debt and the circadian rhythm or the two laws of sleep and how Rise builds upon these two factors to help people become more focused and perform better during the day!

    Everything About Nutrition For Weight Loss (Pt. 1) - 20 Minute Fitness Episode #264

    Everything About Nutrition For Weight Loss (Pt. 1) - 20 Minute Fitness Episode #264

    This week on the podcast we began our next 2 part series, this time surrounding the Ins & Outs of Nutrition From the Context of Weight Loss. In Part 1 we cover the very basics such as; what actually is weight loss, how to plan your diet for weight loss, and a few tips and tricks to make the ride easier.
    With that being said, there are no quick fixes but instead advice on healthy nutrition that, if implemented, will lead to not only to sustainable weight loss but permanent lifestyle changes. This is key as what we must avoid is falling back into old habits and undoing (often times worsening) any progress made.

Um...

I love the information provided by this podcast but am extremely distracted by the UM... every 4-5 word in episodes! I have had to get over a similar habit myself and I know it is difficult but it is essential if you UM.. want to be taken seriously as a UH.. speaker. Keep up the great content but cut out the UM!

Fun, reliable and inspirational fitness advice

Their longer podcasts are great they provide an insight on commonly asked questions that us fitness lovers get but my favorite part are the short five-minute tips are the best at motivating me almost daily.
