F2FHQ 063 - What Supplements?

Zack and Carol discuss feeding the masses real food, their supplement experiment update, and the advantages of final edit control.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m your co-host, Zack Carlson from TheGunBench.com and along with me is Carol Salva, your other cohost.  In this podcast we are chronicling our journeys from Fat to Fit.  We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle not only in diet, but in all areas of life.

Max Jacobson: Three Nutrition Lessons Explained By Dessert


Works in a bakery/family business but fiercely interested in Health and Fitness

“Most of my data is anecdotal or based on studies I’ve only just made up. I don’t plan on delving into the science of anything, just some good honest observations from someone who loves cake and working out.”

1) Beware of the clever disguise

2) Broccoli is not spelled B A C O N (health is work)

3) Know the difference between indulgence and fuel: Indulgence is awesome. Life’s too short to cut it out, but life can be a lot shorter if dessert’s all you eat.

”Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.”

Tom on Myfitnesspal:  We wrote back and forth about mud runs. He did a really lame Zombie run and I told him about my lame beach run.

And please, tell your male guests to grow a set and stop whining already. (especially about the food- its embarrassing)
