2.       Topics

a.       Tiptoe & Syn – Racing

                                                               i.      Run through the racing that you both just done.


b.      Bad Fat, Turns Good

                                                               i.      Bad fat cells called adipose cells can be converted in to good cells.

                                                             ii.      The drug called GC-1.

                                                            iii.      GC-1 dramatically increases the metabolic rate, essentially converting white fat, which stores excess calories and is associated with obesity and metabolic disease, into a fat like calorie-burning brown fat.

                                                           iv.      GC-1 works, according to Phillips, by activating the receptors for thyroid hormone, which play a role in regulating metabolism.

                                                             v.      Until several years ago, scientists thought that only animals and human infants have energy-burning, "good" brown fat.

                                                           vi.      Genetically obese mice lost weight and more than 50 percent of their fat mass in approximately two weeks, Phillips reported. Treated mice also showed antidiabetic effects, such as a sixfold improvement or better in insulin sensitivity (how well the body clears glucose from the bloodstream).

c.       Pea protein: Is it the new soy?

                                                               i.      From cereals to smoothies to energy bars, pea protein is everywhere. What's driving the craze is the hunger to find an easy-to-digest plant-based protein that is less apt to cause allergic reactions, like gluten or soy.

                                                             ii.      Pea protein is a supplement derived from the same kinds of dried peas you'd use to make soup.

                                                            iii.      The one downside: It's not a complete protein.

                                                           iv.      Unlike other popular protein products, soy and whey, it doesn't have all the amino acids we need that our bodies can't make. To get the full nutritional value, it needs to be combined with something like rice or bread.

                                                             v.      It also contains soluble fiber that can lower cholesterol levels. The protein in pea fiber can also help keep you feeling satisfied, not being hungry.

                                                           vi.      There's a growing body of evidence that plant-based diets can reduce the risk of obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and the risk of early death.

d.      Adding Protein Throughout The Day Has Health Benefits

                                                               i.      Research has shown that eating more protein can support weight loss and prevent weight gain by boosting metabolism, increasing feelings of fullness and helping the body retain muscle while losing fat.

                                                             ii.      University of Missouri researcher Heather Leidy and her colleagues conducted a review of the current scientific literature on protein consumption and found that a moderate increase in protein consumption at each meal, balanced throughout the day, can lead to significant improvements.

                                                            iii.      Eat Breakfast - Eating a protein-rich breakfast containing about 30 grams of protein leads to even greater satiety throughout the day and can reduce unhealthy snacking by improving appetite control.

                                                           iv.      Add a little protein to every meal, especially at breakfast and lunch.

                                                             v.      Consume high-quality protein - Not all proteins are created equal. High-quality, or "complete," proteins found in animal-based foods such as beef, pork, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products contain all the essential amino acids and are easily

e.      Rock-Hard, Flat Mid-Section

                                                               i.      Core training is obviously a very important aspect in developing a strong mid-section.

                                                             ii.      Nutrition - Stick with an 80/20 rule when it comes to diet. 80 percent of your week at the minimum needs to be spot on. Do everything that you to do 80 percent of the time. Then, the remaining 20 percent allow for error and some fun.

                                                            iii.      Exercise – The core is made up of these areas: rectus abdominis, obliques, quadratus lumborum, erector spinae, transverse abdominis, multifidus, diaphragm and the pelvic floor. That's a lot to train, and you are not going to hit them all by doing crunches.

1.       Planks

2.       Side Planks

3.       Bird Dog

4.       Sternal Crunch (With No Flexion)

5.       Belly Breathing

                                                           iv.      Sleep - Getting a sufficient amount of rest is vital in being healthy overall and the healthier you are, the more of a fat-burning furnace you'll be.

3.       Emails

a.       From: Lion Heart @Jazz

Question: What is more important; content or technique?


b.      From: Whispering Hoss @Jazz

Question: I been following your Twitter for a while as well as been listening to you on FMC. For a while you haven’t been working out due to work or moving. But, here recently you talk about what made you get back in to working out. It been a while now from the time you started working out, so that is where my question lies. What keeps you motivated and pushing through the workouts? How about the day you hate the most leg day? Also, why do you hate it so much?


c.       From: Willy Scott @Jazz

Question: Been a fan of your works as well as a little of an admirer to your works as an artist. Could you explain how Thurston and is he replaced your regular wolf? I do like Thurston but would like to still see your wolf character around.  


d.      From: MattLiger @All

Question: I do have kind of an issue I'm having and am kind of wondering if anyone in the cast feels/felt the same way. My issue when I see my friends post pictures of their progress (them getting bigger, losing weight and looking fantastic), I get a bit jealous and demotivated. Just wondering if anyone has felt that way and how they coped with it?


e.      From: Zeus Ralo @All

Question: Have anyone in the cast have seen the change of body building throughout time since it first started till now? What are the differences of how body builder look? What judges were looking for in a body builder then and now? Now, if you were the judge of a contest as big as this, what would you be looking for on a body builder when they perform on stage?


f.        From: ShortStop @Max

Question: Currently, I’m drinking meal replacement and eat good meals. What are some good in between snacks? I’m bored with yogurt and nuts, as they are driving me nuts.




g.       From: Hake-Eye @Schred

Question:  I been working out a lot and my upper thighs are getting to muscular. I want a lean body but not hug thighs.


h.      From: EuroWolf @Schred

Question:  Do you enjoy the European way the weight function vs the American weight system in the gym? I can just look at my bar set and see I got 255lbs on it (color plates) versus I have to look at each plate on the bar in American to figure it out. 


i.         From: Otterz @Syn

Question: I been working out and dieting for a while and my energy levels are hitting low levels. I find myself starting to hit a wall. What have you done to help yourself to get pass such problems? Any "Tips" you can give? *wink*


j.        From: BattyFatty @ Beastly

Question: Will you be getting another motorcycle and back to biking soon? What type of bike would you like to get and how many CC’s?


k.       From: Anonymously @Syn & Tiptoe

Question: Me and my husband have be together for over six year. I had been hefty for over a long time as well as him. I found the podcast and stated to get my ass out and do something to address the current problem that is apparent to me. I have lost thirty pounds of weight in about four month’s times. I have still got a way to go but a email for another time, but, my question to you both. My husband has yet to see the light and has been not as support of going to the gym as me trying to help myself and him to come as well. There have been some times that we have had some heated words over the subject, but he coming around a little bit. How can I help promote a better life with him and I if he lacking the drive to hit the weights and help keep the tension low as well. Also, how do you both handle your relationship with the gym? Do you mostly focus on yourself and then your partner? Are, are you both always in the same boat and move forward?
