Episode 88: Ben Greenfield – Fat Loss, Muscle Gain, & Diet Tips for Longevity & Performance

Biohacker, human body and brain performance coach, speaker, New York Times bestselling author, athlete, and podcaster, Ben Greenfield, gives us the lowdown on fat loss, ways to improve our fat-burning efficiency, and what he does to be a fat-burning machine all day long. 


We talk about inflammation and how to reduce it with diet changes, reducing EMFs, fasting, and even cold exposure. We learn how to think about cardio, the truth about muscle, and why having strong glutes is an indicator of longevity—and Ben shares the optimized daily routine that keeps him on the top of his game.
