We talk about the Precision Nutrition eating system and habit change, the effect that carbohydrates have on muscle volume and its relation to a recent experiment I did after being critisised by a fellow fit pro, how to manage diet intake when working shifts, not liking fruit and vegetables and what to do about it (man up), oh and anna's new protein xmass cook book. We even manage a few jokes!

This week I get James Monk back on the show to talk about Intermittent Fasting. This week we answer more specific quesitons surrounding IF from listeners that wrote in. How to work IF around training specifics, macros, calories, backloading carbs and more. Action packed show, the longest yet at 65 minutes.

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?

Ben and Anna hit up episode 5 talking about what kind of milk is best to consume and the best of the bunch when it comes to alternative milk, what supplements are a complete waste of money and why, when the best time to consume low GI carbs are and their integration in and around exercise, application of carb cycling, how to improve sleep especially when you have young kids, and an idea for a halloween style pudding for a dinner party. Hopefully with some banter thrown in for good measure.
