Episode 38 Overview

Here’s an overview of what we’ll be talking about in this episode:

  • Can you talk about your article “9 Simple Rules Every Dieter Must Follow”? What does the average person need to know about dieting?
  • So a caloric deficit of 15% of total calories is a good starting point for losing weight?
  • Do you suggest tracking or using a calculator to find your caloric needs?
  • Why do you suggest that people keep lifting heavy while trying to lose weight?
  • What about protein intake?
  • What types of proteins do you suggest people consume to get their 30g of essential amino acids?
  • Is there any truth to the common statement that the body can only absorb 30g of protein at a time?
  • What about fat? Can it be stored as fat?
  • Is it safe to say that the phenomenon of being afraid of carbohydrates is absurd?
  • What is a refeed and when should we do it?
  • You mention filling up on vegetables? Which vegetables do you recommend? Is ketchup part of that?
  • How do you suggest people to go back to a maintenance level of calories?
  • What happens to the metabolism during weight loss? How can someone keep weight loss from ruining their metabolism?
  • Can you talk a little about the overfeeding study on SFA and PUFA?
  • Is there some truth to the statement that high carbs combined with high fat in the diet is a bad idea?
  • What do we need to know about SFA, MUFA, and PUFA in general?
  • If you could suggest a couple pieces of positive advice to the fitness industry, what would you suggest to help the industry do better?
  • Are people as crazy about diet and fitness in Germany as they are in the US?
