$9.99 COUPON CODE: 8U751106

In Episode 457 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” I have the privilege of speaking with one of my fellow nutrition and fitness podcasters named Ben Greenfield who is a well-known competitive triathlete who helps train others who want to participate in triathlons and other sports competitions. He was voted the #1 personal trainer in America in 2008–so this guy really knows his stuff! Ben is also making his mark in the health podcasting world through two of the most highly successful shows in the world– and “Quick & Dirty Tips: Get Fit Guy.” Listen to Ben’s December 2010 podcast interview with me to hear more about what matters the most to him.

Listen to Ben Greenfield share about his passion for fitness and nutrition:

  • What got him interested in being a “tri-geek” doing triathlons
  • His brief foray into bodybuilding for a period of time
  • The evolution of his diet over the years finding the best diet for him
  • His metabolic typing that requires him to eat more fat and protein
  • Why it’s important for him to eat 85% carbs prior to a competition
  • His belief that eating high-carb is not necessarily healthy
  • Athletic competitions that diabetics and the metabolically-challenged can do
  • His experience participating in the Ironman Hawaii competition
  • The sports gels and salt tabs used during a race to restore glycogen stores
  • His support for exercising in a fasted state for fat loss
  • Why your muscles start burning during exercise and why aerobic is best for fat loss
  • The bad “trickle-down advice” promoting eating before, during and after workouts
  • The scant research that’s out there about eating carbohydrates after a workout
  • Why most athletes know that the diet of their training is not optimal for their health
  • The success of his health podcasts and related web sites to help people
  • His iPhone app to get his fans in touch with the stuff he’s doing
  • Ben’s challenge to have me run in a triathlon someday
  • How to hire Ben to train you for competitive athletics
