- Goes to show you can dose with a pretty freaking huge amount of carbs before you “get fat”. Carb loading pre-race won’t make you fat.
- Ever heard of “chia seed loading”? Here’s the breakdown.

How To Know If Fitness and Nutrition Research Is Good
Sceptic asks: He recently heard that one scientific journal retracted 60 papers after details of a “peer review ring” came to light and the journal Nature recently retracted two papers involving stem cells. So he is wondering, what are the most important things to look for when you’re reading a study or looking at research to figure out whether it’s actually good research or whether you can trust the conclusions?
Natural Remedies for Tinnitus
There'sa asks: She wants to know what you know about tinnitus. What makes your ears ring incessantly during the day and into the evening? She is approaching 50 years old and the ringing is getting worse. Do you have any suggestions on how to quiet the inner noise that is happening in her ears?
What To Eat Before An Afternoon or Evening Race
Jeff asks: He is running the Las Vegas half marathon which is run at night. Most races are in the morning and he has that fuelling dialed in but doesn't know how much or what to eat before an afternoon or night race. He is looking for “wise council” from both of us.
Abnormal Heart Rhythms During Exercise
Fred asks: He is 66 and has always prided himself on having a low heart rate but now he has found out that he has an Atrial Fibrillation. He is wondering if he can still train/exercise with a heart that has A-Fib? Now he doesn't know when he gets out of breath if it is the fibrillation or his age or just if he is out of shape.
How To Know If You Have Toxins
Lawrence asks: He does a twice daily 9 mile bicycle commute in pretty heavy traffic. The rides are often the highlight of his day and he also feels that they counteract an otherwise sedentary lifestyle. He is not afraid to ride in traffic but he is afraid of the environmental toxins that he may be exposed to during the ride. What lab tests should he get to find out if he has been exposed. He looks forward to hearing your response during one of his commutes – don't worry be uses bone conducting earphones not earbuds.
