Anonymous - Is it "bad" (whatever bad means) to eat the same meals everyday? (I love oats and eat them every single morning). Also, is it harmful for that matter to consume the same veggies and proteins everyday?
Anonymous - In your experience (both personal and with coaching), what is the single most important factor towards achieving optimal performance in weightlifting? - What would be your first piece of nutritional advice to someone who wants to achieve optimal performance in weightlifting or sport (rugby as an example)?
Tony Cottenden - The best ways you've found challenging dietary misreporting?
Ross Coundon - What are the main techniques and tools you use to create sustainable change for your clients?
Rob Turner - Could you discuss the potential negative effects of counting calories and how this may be unsuitable for certain clients (I'm thinking obsessive/ addictive personality types that may become slightly neurotic about tracking every last calorie, which may impact on quality of life). How do you make this judgement, and what alternative methods do you use to help people achieve their goals? Many thanks.

Peter Ginger from Hertfordshire - When I do train, I want to train hard and effectively make up for lost time. My strength and size are still present. But my recovery is awful. Last Monday I did a Neil @ genetic arm workout. It was awesome. But my arms hurt for seven days straight. Even then they weren't fully recovered. My nutrition is fine. I believe it is my cns complaining. I've read that all I can do is reduce volume a lot and slowly build it up over time. Have you experienced this? Any help you and Martin can give would be awesome.
James Kew - Would be interested to hear your thoughts on the somewhat controversial topic of reverse dieting. If you don't advocate it, what would be your nutritional recommendations for a physique competitor transitioning into the off-season? Maybe a period at maintenance calories to normalize some of the metabolic slowdown before jumping into a lean gaining phase?
