The normal show resumes, but gets off to a racy start. Me and Anna talk about sex, poo, carb back-loading, staying in shape while travelling, if spinning is any good for weight loss, the use of probiotics and new data, whether you need carbs during the day for a manual labour job, and one giant question that just about encompasses every health topic known to man, it's an epic one!

Ben and Anna discuss fruits and vegetables, and if there are any we should avoid, a nutrition plan for the injured or someone that can't exercise, Ben goes on a rant about nutrition 'advisors' that preach that calories and macros are all that count, and some banter along the way.

Guest show talking about intermittent fasting with James Monk. James is a close friend of mine and in my circles an expert on all things fasting. James researches heavily in the area of fasting and psychology and I am pleased that he is on the show. We talk IF and it's many forms, how to make it work for you, when it doesn't work, why it isn't working, the science, IF and women, and then chat about our general thoughts on nutrition and training with a healthy slice of the deep and meaningful at the end. After all, if your head isn't in the right place, does anything else even matter?
