009 Metabolic Flexibility With Dr. Mike T. Nelson

Listen to this episode

Is your body efficient enough to use fat AND carbs for energy –  Allowing you to build muscle while staying lean? Metabolic flexibility can be achieved by anyone, but you have to know what to eat and when.

Don’t just take it from me. Let’s hear what Dr. Mike has to say about what eating to perform looks like. In fact, he wrote his doctorate’s thesis on it. Something tells me he may know a thing or two.

Key Take Aways

  • Eat more carbs on training days
  • Eat less carbs and more fat on non-training days
  • Eat .7g of protein per pound of bodyweight
  • Lift Heavy Shit
