#670 - Gym Culture: Pet Peeves
What do you hate about gym culture, or things people do in the gym? This is part 1 of a mini series with myself and Tom as we explore the things that annoy you about the world of fitness and nutrition. Today, expect some F bombs, a few stories, and hopefully a few fitness lessons we can learn from!
#669 - Fruit & Fructose: Is it bad for us?
Fruit, is it bad for us? Are smoothies a no no? How much sugar, and or fructose is too much? We cover fructose, fruit and sugar metabolism at length in this show so you can be informed, for you and your family's health.
#668 - Calories on Menus, will it change anything?
Calories on menus are now mandatory for companies with 250 staff or more, but nutritionally, and psychologically, what does this mean? Does existing research even support the initiative? The government have brought this in to try help tackle the obesity epidemic, but big Qs are being raised. We cover the research, eating disorders, the option of having the option, and the 'meta' conversation in all this - why not put restrictions on the companies making the money here?
#667 - Toxins, Fasting, and 'Nutritional Therapy'
In the world of nutrition there are some WILD claims, they even go as far to claim they can cure cancer - dangerous ground. A recent ‘Which’ survey did secret testing on the claims of ‘nutritional therapists’, and the outcomes weren’t good - some even saying "don't do chemo for your cancer". In this show we look at nutritional therapy, claims that are made, how to spot false claims, trends we see in this arena, and more - all spurred from a listener email after they attended a female health course with many scrupulous claims...
#666 - The Science of Carbs & Salt in Exercise
Long ago carbs were bad in the world of nutrition, but many are still wary of them. Today we dive deep into carbs and salt and their use in fuelling exercise. We look at the recent sports nutrition data and how you can use this knowledge to enhance your training performance from your carb intake, and where your salt intake should be at.
#665 - Gym & Sports Supplements: Beta Alanine & Creatine
This week we look specifically at beta alanine and creatine after its popularity and spotlight off the back of the Joe Rogan Matt Fraser interview. We delve into their science, application, and who should use them, and why. So if you hit the gym, or play sport, this show is for you to understand whether they are supplements you would take or not.
I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for creating such an impactful podcast! I believe that we all have a voice that deserves to be heard. Thank you for putting this into the world! BE UNBROKEN! @MichaelUnbroken
Truly makes you think and helps you manifest an awesome life
I’ve been a loyal listener since the beginning and Ben has always been extremely honest, knowledgeable, raw, well-spoken, and clearly wants to do everything he can to serve his audience.
Listening to this podcast has had a profound impact on my nutrition, fitness, and mindset and is a big reason why I am proud of the person I am today and am living an awesome life!
The education I’ve gained from this podcast has helped me lose over 50 lbs, get rid of my high blood pressure, overcome depression, overcome an eating disorder, and has inspired me to become a certified personal trainer and health coach!
I know I can trust everything Ben and Tom say because they base everything off of research and approach everything without bias.
Thank you so much Ben for serving so many people and for continuing to inspire me to help others live happy, healthy, fulfilling lives!
Keep it up buddy!
Finally, someone who doesn’t come across as over elite and explains things!
My favorite part about listening to Ben and his show is that Ben clearly has an abundance of well researched and tested knowledge. But he doesn’t come across as so elite that following him is useless. He talks to the listeners as if they are his best friends asking for help. Even the quick shows start with a “how are you? I hope you’re awesome!” and oddly I feel like he’s seriously saying / meaning. that and not just using a good opening line. Ben and his guests have really expanded my food / training knowledge and continue to do so. Thanks Ben, thanks Tom, and thanks to your guests!
