3 Ways To Keep Injuries From Piling Up

Liz asks: She is an avid long course triathlete that was diagnosed with a partial tear in her plantar fascia just two weeks before her A-Race. She can still swim and bike but she has to wear a moveable walking boot for 3 months in order to keep her toes from bending back and to let fascia heal. What can she do to stop the awkward gait of the walking boot from causing problems elsewhere on her body?

In my response I recommend:
Body By Science book
Water Running

Is Deli Meat Healthy?

Donald asks: He is wondering how healthy (or unhealthy) are those big circular, pressed together, deli ham, turkey and other meats that you see at Walmart and stores like that. Could that be a quick way to get some meat before or after the gym? They seem a little too good to be true.

How To Defat Bone Broth

Dave asks: He just made his first batch of bone broth and it is super delicious. He has noticed that when he puts it in the fridge it gets a quarter inch of what looks like pure fat on the top of it. He has been heating it up and mixing the fat back in and eating it. Is that the right thing to do?

Is Powdered Peanut Butter Healthy?

Elyse asks: What do you think about dehydrated peanut butters that have all the fat removed before they are packaged? Is this better or worse than regular peanut butter?

How To Maximize Performance in Fire Gear

Jim asks: He was just hired by the fire department. He is currently in training all day, wearing the protective gear. It really keeps the heat in and causes him to sweat more than he ever has before. It also weighs about 80lbs and most days he can feel his legs (and other parts of his body) start to cramp up. What can he do to maximize his performance in this situation?

Where To Find Beyond Training Audiobook

Charles asks: He purchased the Kindle version of Beyond Training and is wondering where the alluded to “audio version” of the book is? He has called Audible a couple times and they say that it does not exist. Where can he find it?

In my response I recommend:
Premium channel of BenGreenfieldFitness

    Hi Ben

    I actually looked into the research link on the “water diet ”

    And the women in the study were overweight and not obese as you mention in the podcast

    Also the significant statisticam was .01 and normally we use 0.05

    As someone who listen to all of your podcasts – this so called study is pure crap and not something worth mentioning

    Please read it again the women there lost 1 kilo on average in 8 weeks !

    The group age of them was 18-23 years

    This study is not worth even mentioning

    I just heard you're going to be in VT. I live in VT. I looked up the 401 project, but couldn't find any recent info. Do you have more info on the places you will be speaking?

    What was the iPhone device you were using to test food/water quality and EMF levels?

    Hi Ben,
    Thank you for another stellar podcast! I am thrilled that you talk about contralateral training and stretching. I am a physical therapist and I frequently use a technique called Total Motion Release (totalmotionrelease.com) that is based on this concept and the results on myself and my patients are excellent. I highly recommend you check out the website and the founder Tom Dalonzo-Baker might be a great interviewee for the show. He is both a visionary and a very down to earth guy. Thanks again,

    1. Very cool. Thank you, Carol. I will check it and him out.
