My buddy Jason Ferruggia hit me up and asked me if I’d like to do an interview on his Renegade Strength & Conditioning blog. It was a huge honor and I accepted. When asked a question, I give an honest, straightforward, no bullsh*t answer, and then I ramble about nonsense because I’m a weird guy like that. I guess Jason liked that style, because the interview ended up being a 3-parter.
Quite frankly, I think this is one of the best pieces of content I’ve been a part of, and contains a ton of useful information for you. Here are the links to each part of the interview, including what we covered:
NUTRITIONAL KNOWLEDGE BOMBS WITH NATE MIYAKI – PART I: Why low carb diets are good for certain populations vs. the various reasons why anaerobic athletes & strength trainers should include some carbs in their diets, why you should go AGAINST mainstream fitness advice and eat the majority of your calories and carbs at night, good carb choices (hint, Japanese Village-style – white rice and root vegetables), various Seinfeld quotes and references.
NUTRITIONAL KNOWLEDGE BOMBS WITH NATE MIYAKI – PART II: We call out bullsh*t “health” foods including why flaxseed oil sucks, why “whole food” fats are far superior to refined oils, specific pre-workout advice and modifications, and we talk about what would be the female equivalent of erectile dysfunction (but are a little more vulgar about it, so beware).
NUTRITIONAL KNOWLEDGE BOMBS WITH NATE MIYAKI – PART III: Starts with a phenomenal picture of Eva Mendes which is all you really need to know but then, specific post-workout recommendations and modifications, how the diet set-up changes for gaining muscle/mass vs. targeted fat loss, specific adjustments for those dealing with acute or chronic inflammatory conditions.
AND, a lot of the magic happened (I answered a bunch of questions) in the comments section, so make sure to check that out.
Until next time, this is how the Renegade and the Ronin (me, in honor of Musashi) roll…
