My Six Month Diet Experiment and The Surprising Results I Learned…

Josh Kennedy and James Breese highlight the importance of nutrition in fat loss in this episode. They share details on the updated fat loss training program they developed for Strength Matters and the reasoning behind the change.

  • The intensity of fat loss workouts
  • Training plateau results forcing deeper nutrition research
  • The importance of doing a macro-nutrient breakdown
  • Maintenance calories and what that actually means
  • The Muller Equation
