Proper nutrition is one of the absolute cornerstones of good training. Trying to train if your nutrition sucks is like trying to redline a sports car using cheap Tijuana gas – the entire system is going to fall apart.
The problem is that there is so much bad advice out there about nutrition, ranging from bro science to diets that can have disastrously negative side effects.
I recently had an absolutely a fascinating conversation with Nick Hiebert who has done a ton of research into the nutrient density of different foods.
In this talk we look at the ten all time greatest, most nutrient dense foods, the ketogenic diet, fats vs carbs vs proteins, and much more. It’s available as episode 244 of my show, The Strenuous Life Podcast.
