In this show we cover Nutrient Timing with a special introduction focusing solely on the practice of 'Carb Back Loading' with some interesting anecdotes as well as, of course, a review of what the research says on the topic.

We discuss the timing of nutrients and how it may, or may not, be worthwhile paying attention to. The 'timing' of fat intake even gets a token mention despite the research on this topic being sparse to say the least!

This whole show is about answering listener questions: we tackle the relatively new topic of reverse dieting - what it is, why it might be useful, how to do it. We also discuss internet gurus and why there are so many differing opinions. Also discussed is how to find research, how to evaluate it and the big quesion: Do carbs actually contain insulinz? You'll notice a new format i.e. no intro music. This was due to listener feedback! Let us know what you think :)
