In this episode of the IFS Podcast, I had a really interesting talk with Borge Fagerli.
Borge is a Norwegian strength coach who looks deep at lifestyle factors and underlying health.
He advocates a nutritional approach he terms the BioRhythm Diet, which looks at the connection between diet and circadian rhythms.
Borge is also currently working on a book with Ari Whitten, which is due for release later in 2015.
In this podcast we discuss the following topics:
-what made Borge look on training and nutrition through the perspective of circadian biology
-what is the Biorhythm diet and why though it sounds counter logical, eating carbs at night doesn’t make you fat, but actually helps you get leaner
-the difference between the Biorhythm diet and diets like Carb Night
-what is the link between insulin sensitivity and timing of carbs, when it comes to burning fat and building muscle
-is there a seasonal difference between carb and fat intake – i.e. should we change our diet depending on the light/ dark cycles
-EMF and blue light as the environmental factors linked to obesity, regardless of food intake
-Borge’s take on fasting as a tool to get healthier and fitter
-training for muscle growth – what are Myo-reps
-Myo reps and speeding up metabolism
-training and nutrition advice for hard gainers or as Borge calls them – slow responders
