Show Notes

Today’s guest is Ben Carpenter. I’ve invited him back on the show to answer some reader questions that we didn’t get a chance to cover on the previous episode.

We cover:

  1. Don’t people just need more willpower?
  2. Can fruit make you gain weight due to the sugar content?
  3. Why is it so hard to maintain weight loss over the long term? What can we do about it?
  4. How can you remove the fear of lifting for older clients/people?
  5. Is there any research on the long-term impact of artificial sweeteners?
  6. Is it possible to effectively bulk while intermittent fasting?
  7. Why Ben doesn’t go super hard on anything specific diet ideology.
  8. And what Ben is planning now that his book has been released.
