Listener Kelly asks: I know you so appreciate my questions, so here goes…..I have a couple of girlfriends doing the Beach Body INSANITY workout and they are trying to get me on board…I was thinking no way since I'm training for a marathon, but as I started thinking more, perhaps it's fine to supplement with my running program….What do you think and/or know about this program?
Listener David asks: My wife does not drink enough water. She admit to this as well fails to drink water from a lack of thirst. She has a history of kidney stones, and so her need to drink more water is evident. Her dad who I bike with regularly, also does not drink much water. He hardly ever brings two bottles on a ride even when the ride exceeds 50 miles. Do some people just not get thirsty? Can this be healthy and could there possibly be an underlying reason for their lack of thirst? If so, do you have any methods to “re-thirst” and re-hydrate perhaps? Love the show. Thanks for your time.
Listener Chuck asks: Can you help me figure my race day nutrition for the Half Ironman when the race gets closer?
Listener Chuck also asks: I am doing the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon in May and the water temperature is going to be about 54 degrees for the 1.5 mile swim. Besides my wet suit, are there any other things I can do to not freeze to death in the water. I've heard wearing a second swim cap might help? Thanks Ben,
Listener Rick asks: I can't say enough good things about your pod casts. I have gained valued information, thanks! I have heard many good things about Forskolin. What do you know about it? Do you recommend supplementing a training regiment with this herb? Any information would greatly appreciated.
In my response to Rick, I mention the forskolin-packed Lean Factor.
Congratulations to Rick, who was nominated as the top question for this week's podcast! Rick will receive a free month of membership to the Body Transformation Club, full access to the Club's secret video page, the life-changing piece of Club mail that I will personally send him each week, and much more.

Listener Patrick asks: Hey Ben, I wanted to ask you about a very popular brand of nutritional product that I see being sold at many stores and greatly displayed at the MIT Olympic triathlon last weekend. The company is called Pacific Health Labs and they have popular products that has been around for years i.e. endurox R4 and Accelerade. My question is how come you don't suggest using these product in training. They also have a gel called Accel Gel, and an energy bar that promote appetite control. What are you thoughts on these products?
In my response to Patrick, I mention the CocoChia bar for appetite control (check it out by clicking here).
