30 Minutes of Diet & Training Tips: The Miyaki Power Quest Interview

I was recently a guest on a popular fitness podcast in Austria — Power-Quest.  We had a great time talking about a variety of topics related to fat loss nutrition, training, and looking ripped year-round.

Intermittent Feast Diet & training tips

Intermittent Feast Invades Austria

Listen to the full interview here: 388 (Gold): Nate Miyaki — Ein Samurai im Kampfermodus

*Scroll down and click on the title.  The portion with me is in English, and it starts at 13:50 and ends at 47:50.

INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS

  • What Nate’s 2000 calorie dinner consists of, hahaha….
  • How you can structure your diet in a way to eat a big, satiating meal with carbs at night, even in the most aggressive fat loss/cutting phases.  No more starving on lettuce leaves at night to get lean.
  • Why calories and macronutrients are exponentially more important than diet structure.
  • How Intermittent Feast pulls principles from natural bodybuilding, The Paleo Diet, Sports Nutrition, and intermittent fasting protocols.
  • A brief comparison of 5-6 small meals a day vs. 2 meals a day, and why the latter can work as an excellent fat loss & physique enhancement plan (from physiology to practicality to sustainability).
  • Giving credit where credit is due — Serge Nubret (as the athletic) and Ori Hofmekler (as the intellectual & scientific) pioneers of intermittent fasting/feasting protocols.
  • The problems with extreme bulking & cutting phases.
  • Why you can use bodybuilders for inspiration, but also why you shouldn’t try to follow the protocols of drug enhanced athletes (unless of course you want to take that route, no judgement here).
  • Why I love red meat.
  • Sane, unbiased protein recommendations.
  • Why you should put more focus on the basics of a sound nutrition plan vs. the overuse of supplements as miracle cures.
  • Why there is no one right way to train.  An athlete simply must match their training protocol to their goal, how my program changed training primarily for performance (martial arts and stunts) vs. training for appearance (natural bodybuilding, fitness modeling).
  • The value of mobility and dynamic warm-ups to offset computer posture and prevent injury.
  • Why free weights and basic movements should be the foundation of your routine as opposed to flashy & fancy exercises.

EIN SAMURAI!  I don’t know what that means, but it sounds pretty cool.  Thanks for the opportunity Dominik.
