Best-selling author and nutrition scientist Dr. T. Colin Campbell joins Coach Scott Abel for a conversation about whole food-plant based diet, as well as commentary on the myths, business, and politics of nutrition.
Scott’s clients are frequently asked what they eat to get so lean and stay that way. Their “high-carb diet” answer often surprises people. Scientific research exposes that fat makes you fat, not carbs.
Perspective helps frame an individual’s definition of struggle. Some report “struggles” with diet or fitness goals, while others deal with life issues of sickness or the death of a loved one. Scott doesn’t think they compare.
What’s the best training strategy to build a bigger, more muscular physique? Recent research supports what Scott learned and preached in the real world of bodybuilding: training for strength isn’t the quickest path to a more muscular physique.
Every superhero needs a super-villain, even in nutrition dogma. Pop science portrays protein as the hero nutritional macro, with carbs playing the bad guy. Research suggests protein may be the real villain.
Scott’s clients JP and Byron—who have lost a combined 170 lbs.—join the show, talking about how they’ve used the Cycle Diet, intelligent workout routines and internal discipline to transform their physiques.
Scott’s received some strong reactions from both vegans and omnivores about his transition to eating vegan. Join the Coach and Andy as they continue their discussion about the vegan diet, why they made the change, and others’ reactions to it.
