September 28, 2018

Dr. Everman is back for more muscle physiology talk! I am skeptical of justifying intermittent fasting for sports nutrition, and after hearing from Dr. Everman on last week's episode that intermittent fasting is something she enjoys, I knew I had to have her back and find out more! Whether you're for or against IF, you're going to love this scientific discussion and you're going to learn whether or not this is a nutrition strategy for you!

We talk about dietary protein, aging and sarcopenia, and of course - we break down some serious bro-science about muscle health! But best of all - Sarah leaves us with the ultimate cliff-hanger at the end that demands a part two interview for closure haha! You're going to love this episode and how full-on science it gets!
