If you're trying to lose fat or get fitter during the holiday season, you won't want to miss this episode, which includes:

Also included in this podcast is an answer to the following listener question:
I listened to podcast #21 where you gave your 1-2-3 secret to fast fat burning and basically, you advocated 20-30 min @ 60% MHR an on empty stomach. My question is that I work out 5x a week at an hour each morning – 2-3 times full body weight training and 2-3 times high intensity cardio at 85-95% HR or interval training. To increase my fat burning potential, how do I use this slower, steady cardio technique? Should I continue with my current workout program and then tack on an extra 30 min of steady cardio?
