Ben Coomber Radio

Can we push too hard and not make progress? How much is too much? This is the problematic area of fitness, knowing whether you are doing too much, or not enough. The reality is it's very personal, but in this show we explore building muscle, training to extremes, and how to juggle all this with what we coin as 'life'.

Want to know who the real Bear Grylls is? This man, Les Stroud. Over 70 episodes where he goes into the wild to survive on his TV show 'Survivorman' that he films himself. Les Stroud joins me on the show to discuss his diet at home and in the world, how he keeps fit, what nature does to the human body and mind, why he programs yoga into his training, why he fasts, what he thinks of veganism seeing as you can't be vegan in the wild, and much more.

Les was an awesome, humble, entertaining guest, with a ton of stories to share.

Hazel Wallace, Doctor & Trainer, aka the Food Medic joins me to discuss... In a world of lifestyle related diseases, do we appreciate BOTH the value of food and medicine? Do we need to be more aligned to have more impact in the world? And, is the fitness industry part of the problem, especially as we tend to point the finger at the NHS and the EatWell plate for being 'not so perfect'. But, is it REALLY that bad? Are we propagating the confusion around nutrition? 

A fascinating discussion with a lady doing great things in the world of food, nutrition and medicine. Grab a copy of her book and follow her here: https://thefoodmedic.co.uk

This week we coach someone and go into detail on a real case study discussing calorie and nutrient intake, the application of science and how real world feedback changes our approach, phobias and how to alleviate anxiety with data, calculating energy expenditure, the true definition of evidence based practice, reverse dieting, and much more (including my new favourite recipe). Oh, and I'm with yours truly Mr Tom Bainbridge from the BTN Academy, online nutrition course provider.
