Episode notes:

Nutrition coach Jason Phillips joins us for this episode.

Serious strength, aesthetic, and health goals can seem to require very different nutritional strategies, but what are the things they have in common? 

Here’s what we came up with:

  • How often do strength athletes use their goals as an excuse for bad eating habits?
  • Is it food choice or food quantity that matters most?
  • Do carbs and aesthetics really not go together?
  • What role do performance enhancing drugs play in these goals?
  • How is “health” defined?

Our ideas start about 8:40.

Jason joins us about 16:50.

We kick off the episode talking about neglecting Instagram, Black Mirror, and gore porn.

Here’s one of the first projects that we worked on together.
