63 A Woman's Side of Weightlifting [w/ Bridget Raach]

In this episode, "B-Rock" tells us the importance of weight training, or working against resistance, in general and especially for women. The 2 pound dumbell curls in front of the mirror are useless. Women need to lift weight, or work against resistance, as much as men do. They need to work against a resistance that is harder than they are used to. And, they need to sweat.

Bridget Raach will talk about Crossfit, and what she thinks of it as a sport, Olympic weightlifting and her recent experience with the  ICECP.

53 Diets Don't Work w/ Traci Mann

Dr. Traci Mann has researched the ability of weight loss diets to do what they say they will and found some surprising results - they don't work. More specifically, they do not help a person keep the weight off over time.

In this interview with University of Minnesota professor Traci Mann, she tells us the premise of her book, "Secrets From The Eating Lab", and why she is uniquily qualified to write this unbiased book.

In this interview, Dr. Mann tells us:

  • Her strategies to lose, and maintain, body weight
  • Why willpower doesn't work
  • Why dieting is worse for you than doing nothing
  • The power of an "implementation intention"
  • That "Calories in - Calories out" is a myth
  • Comfort foods are not comforting, and
  • Diet soda is worse for you than the sugar versions

35 Regular Guy Reaches Breaking Point

In this interview, Darren Altman explains how he went from flabby to fit and what his breaking point was to motivate him to change his lifestyle.

He may not be a regular guy in that he is a voice over artist by day and plays drums on stage at night, but he is regular in that he has a wife, child, and a sedentary job.

He is like most people in the modern world whose jobs keep them sedentary for long periods of time.

He is also a regular guy when, after his marriage and child, he found his weight climbing, and climbing - until he almost burst his pants on stage and decided he needed to change.

Darren found fitness and a healthy lifestyle.

In this episode, Glenn explains why rapid weight loss ends in failure, why it is anti-productive and why it results in more weight gained than lost. 

Fast, or rapid, weight loss is tempting. Once you decide you are ready to make a change, you want that change to happen, now. But, this will only result in very short term weight loss and usually a gain of more weight than was lost initially.
