For many athletes, knowing which foods aid performance and which don’t relies on trial and error. Peer-reviewed journals can be a great source of.

However, science has identified a few supplements that may be helpful to some athletes. [ Full story: Workout Supplements: The Impact on Muscle Strength and Fatigue ] Exercise and Weight Loss. Many supplements exist on the market to help improve athletic performance, but none of these products may be as effective as the nutrients provided from whole foods. Many athletes overemphasize.

Food for athletes: the wonderful avocado Few fruits have nutritional value as complete as avocado. Vitamins B, C, E, K, iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, calcium, zinc, thiamine, magnesium, to name a few. What more can we ask from food?

Introduction to the importance and influence of nutrition on exercise. Nutrition is increasingly recognized as a key component of optimal sporting performance, with both the science and practice of sports nutrition developing rapidly.1 Recent studies have found that a planned scientific nutritional strategy (consisting of fluid, carbohydrate, sodium, and caffeine) compared with a self. Protein, protein and more protein: As a Free Athlete, you actually have a high protein requirement.

Therefore, it should make up an essential part of your daily nutrition – may it be for fat-burning, muscle-building or performance-enhancing purposes. Oats. Science is creating super-athletes — and making sports unrecognizable to previous generations and diet.

Understanding how all these things interact can help coaches tailor workouts to help. In particular, albacore and wild salmon are some of the best choices. Avoid farmed Atlantic salmon, which contains contaminants and also a lower amount of omega-3s and other nutrients.

Other good wild-caught fish include haddock, halibut, sole, cod, tilapia, trout, catfish, sardines, and anchovies. Research has long suggested that following a Mediterranean diet — which includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and healthy fats, and not much sugar, red meat or processed food —.

List of related literature:

Vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, beans, legumes, lean meats, and low-fat dairy foods are all rich in a combination of the important vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein, fat, carbohydrate, antioxidants, and phytochemicals that athletes need daily to stay in the game.

Because these grains are excellent sources of carbohydrates that athletes need for energy, the sports nutrition professional must work closely with the athlete to find alternative plant protein/energy sources that will not exacerbate the symptoms and/ or progression of the disease.

  • As I watch this I have been drinking energy drinks for almost 20 years 3 weeks ago I started having kidney problems the pain is unreal if my kidneys don’t heal not sure what I’m going to do.I really thought energy drinks were safe

  • They talk about caffeine this caffeine that but most of these people are smoking their lungs out foh ��

    I’m not a energy drinker btw but I’m tired with the hypocrisy..

  • I would drink a couple sometimes one every day ever since I was 13 and I’m 15 now and I can say that it does kinda fuck you up because now my heart beats fast as fuck by doing barely doing anything

  • Good day Prof. I am so impressed with this video and it inspired me more to have deep interest in this our noble profession. Am a Phd student in Nigeria studying sports psychology. I always enjoy your video clips and wish to have yo as my mentor sir

  • Think about it like this. In a world where there really was no problem with milk, wouldn’t the dairy companies have just as much incentive to pay for the studies that say such a thing? They would still need to do it. How do you know this isn’t that world?

  • Even if that study does show you can reduce fat at certain areas. It is only temporary until your body recomps and the fat redistributes throughout your body.

  • Talks about relaxing in the most unrelaxed manner. “Athletes must relax.” Yeah like that forced intent is counter productive to actually relaxing someone.

    Honesty what a weasel monkey. We all know these year 3 concepts

  • Hi Jeff always love you highly informative VLOGS. Wonder if you could do something on eat right for your type where your blood type can dictate what foods are best for you and consequently will help you perform best in the gym. Cheers!

  • Many people today are trying to figure out the best method to drop weight. Then again, being able to find a diet plan that can work for you is tough to find. A crucial factor you need to comprehend is that a diet that works for one person may not work for another. And that means you must know what your getting into before you start one of these diets. Therefore we have opted to offer you a fantastic look at the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet. This can provide you enough information to find out if this really is something which is suitable to your requirements. Read more here

  • So true!
    Our channel is all about the idea of figuring out what goes behind the mind of individuals who play sports and how it helps them grow in other aspects of their life. And how others can benefit from it.

  • In the intro of the book its mentioned that the brain uses carbohydrates as the main source of energy but will switch over to using ketones when carbohydrate intake goes below 50g (avg carb intake being 300-400g)

    My question if anyone can help: is the brain the only organ that can use ketones?

    And If there are other organs that can use ketones, under what conditions do those organs start using ketones?

  • Everyone says it’s so bad for you
    It’s different how it affects people
    They never talk about that
    I drink energy drink alot and have a collection and i’m a teen!
    I don’t have heart burn or heart problems or any like that i’m fine!

  • Nice lecture. Pity that his reasoning is based on a totally flawed energy-based model of endurance performance. When I hear words like “running out of energy” and “fuel tanks” I cringe. Still, I am looking forward to see more studies on this topic as the ketogenic diet may affect ultra-endurance performance through mechanisms other than the “energy advantage” of increased fat oxidation. 

  • I really appreciate what the PCRM is doing. I searched for randomized controlled trials with vegan diets and most of the results were co-authored by Barnard. We can now tell those low-carbers that we absolutely have RCT’s showing the benefits of a vegan diet.

    PS. The new paper they published that Dr. Barnard is talking about in this vid can be found here:

    “Plant-Based Diets for Cardiovascular Safety and Performance in Endurance Sports”

  • He gave a TedTalk on the basic sports psychology which I learn at gcse and a level.
    Shows how much the field has progressed in 12 years as this was once the in depth sports psychology analysis and now this is just surface level.

  • Red bull is dangerous bro,on me that shit had my fucking arm jigging like a mothafucka and my chest was fucking tight as fuck from it

  • I’m combo of endo and mezomorf. You can’t change that, cause it is due to and the structure of the skeleton, shape of the skull etc. I will never have V-shape back as others, cause of my pelvis and hip width, which can’t be changed

  • Here’s a solution… Don’t excessively drink energy drinks. On the side of a large redbull can it says 1 can max daily. I’d rather die from a quick heart attack than a prolonged cancer (smoking)

  • Plant based = caloric deficit. Thankfully there is research out now disproving this. Haha Glycogen comes from natural starches and sugars BUT BUT it also comes from Gluconeogenesis and this process will supply all your glycogen requirements, and and our cells love ketones, much cleaner burning fuel to use a gas analogy and bodies reservoir for this is much much much larger.
    So much to laugh at in this short video

  • Barnard looks like a giant balloon tied to the end of a stick with a tie wrapped around it. Maybe eat a few more beans or something.

  • It’s not even a systematic review of different diets but an opinion piece. And you put “vegan” in the title of your video while confunding vegan and vegetarian diets in your paper.

  • My right arm is significantly stronger than my left!! It’s from picking up my bike/using it and favoring it in strength activities. They look different.

  • Skipping breakfast is more than just reducing calories…it extends your fast and will keep insulin levels low and fat burning is not paused due to jacked up insulin levels from eating or worse, eating sugary cereals or crap. After I drink coffee, I feel better and can keep the fast (restricted eating period) going until early afternoon. So not eating.. will help stabilize appetite and swings in appetite ( as well as maybe kicking in autophagy if you go without eating long enough)…because you arent messing with the appetite hormones…until you are really truly hungry again. Also, if u eat sugary stuff, prepare for increased hunger, no fat burning for a while and also fat storage.

  • This seems like a lecture from the first days of Sports Psychology 101 class. It’s factual content…but it’s really not a fascinating Ted talk.

  • Is there any benefit from taking a supplement before going to bed at night? (ie: creatine, Cla, stimulant free fat burning(metabolic boosters) products, or thyroid boosting herbs like kelp?

  • Anyone have any knowledge/studies to share about the theory that skeletal lipid deposition also seems to cause insulin resistance?

  • I find this boring and tiring I am sorry u lost me,you did a kinda better job at the end but you really didn’t make your points in a way to win me as a former international athlete and currently a coach I thing u have good elements in here but not right into the point that will help much somebody.thank u for the effort tho

  • somatotyping is a real thing.. we’ve all seen numerous examples of people reflecting extreme examples in everyday life. The super skinny dude with typically short insertions who cant gain muscle no matter how much eats, the pear shaped guy with low test and wide hips, and the natural jock who looks pretty good without doing any lifting and can gain muscle and lose fat easily.

    Stop lifting and eat normally for a long time and you will revert back to your natural somatotype, which is a combination of genetics and hormone levels (which itself can be highly based on genetics). Ectomoprhs get super skinny again, endos gain a lot of pudge, and mesos hold onto their muscle pretty well and don’t get too fat or too lean.

  • Thats what they are trying to say that the caffeine content might be low but other chemicals like taurine and other so calles amino acids actually act as stimulants and hence increase the caffeine response….just like adding NOS to you car… results are identical….

  • Eating breakfast has a lot of benefits. If you don’t feed your body well, maintaining your life consistently should be challenging.

  • people find happiness in criticizing people on internet this is a new form of achieving self esteem.self esteem is the people’s self belief in them achieved through their will power

  • Wait, many Americans drink alcohol and it’s not recommend, yet there are many health risks. People will still drink. Same with energy drinks, however I don’t think it’s recommend to drink it but I just do.

  • Two years ago I discovered Dr Bernstein’s Diabetes solution and went low carb to manage my type 2 diabetes. It was great, I got off insulin, but then I couldnt stop losing weight. I was on Atkins basically except very strict on carbs. I added carbs back and the weight loss stopped and two years later I was back in trouble with the diabetes again. There is no information on low carb maintenance!! So two months ago I applied math and discovered that if you limit protein and carbs the only way to make up the deficit is through fat. The logic and my experience said that was so, but I just couldn’t add enough fat. That is until I discovered Dr Phinney on YouTube. I started making 400 calorie fat emulsions like ground ginger, water and 3 tbsp of light olive oil, or butter and lard that I shake in a sport drink shaker bottle. They are very creamy and satisfying. After adding some salt supplementation I am doing great. I have lowered my carbs to 20 g per day and have fasting blood sugars in the 90s and that is after stopping Metformin. This works well after you get past the transition. Thank you Dr Phinney!!!  

    ATHEROSCLEROSIS IN THE MASAI “These pastoral people are exceptionally active and fit and they consume diets of milk and meat. The intake of animal fat exceeds that of American men. Measurements of the aorta showed extensive atherosclerosis with lipid infiltration and fibrous changes but very few complicated lesions. The coronary arteries showed intimal thickening by atherosclerosis which equaled that of old U.S. men.”

  • Not sure what stuff was studied for the detox diet.

    A while back I did a 60 day juice diet. All fresh juiced every day. 1500 calories. Mostly vegetables. I drank a gallon of juice a day. I think my benefits are most likely due to the fact that I was taking in way more micro nutrients than you could ever possibly do eating solid food. Unless you can eat enough veggies in a day to fill a third of a fridge.

    I lost 1lb per day for 60 days. Didn’t gain any of it back (for a long time). And cured my hypertension. I was 160 over 120, at the end I was 120 over 80. Years after the diet I did put the weight back on because I started drinking a lot, eating like shit, and quit exercising. But the hypertension never came back thankfully.

    I know it’s anecdotal. But I really think there’s something to a properly done juice diet. As well as other forms of fasting. Like water fasting and intermittent fasting.

    From the research I’ve done I can’t find a whole lot of good data on the subject. So maybe it just hasn’t been studied deep enough yet. But I do think there’s something to it. And I’ve seen many cases of people getting great health benefits doing it.

    I’m also confident there are a lot of bs fad detox diets out there too. Or garbage products that people sell. Maybe that gives it a bad name.

  • Although I agree milk is good, I cannot over look the mal-practice, abuse, and frankly calf murder, going on behind closed doors in the dairy industry #malecalfs #triggeredvegetarian

  • This is a lie my dad is a scientist and a red bull has 102.3 mg of caffeine this is a scam and a lie do not recommend this video all of this is a lie

  • This guy is one of the most educational and entertaining speakers i’ve heard in a long time! It’s the validity of the data that speaks for itself and his conviction of what he’s teaching that make his lectures super enjoyable to listen to. Thank you!

  • My chest gains were lagging for over 10 straight years before I learned mind-to-muscle strength training. It is real and it is REALLY effective. I taught my wife how to do this as well and she is seeing results she has never seen before. BELIEVE.

  • I have come across documentaries that said high meat diet leads to cancer also my dad had gout from eating meat. I wonder if it really came from carbs heard that it is sugar that cancer grows on.. So much cross information its hard to know who has the facts.

  • You want to be in a good shape and be healthy. So, you tried many things such as studying, exercising, seeking for advice, getting a job like you do, dating with fit people etc. Your treasure is meant to disappear sooner even though I disagree.

  • Southeast Asia got the original Red Bull long before Red Bull stoled the idea. Using the same symbol of 2 bulls going at each other.

  • I would say this is Irresponsible Medicine. I have been vegan for 5 years and my health has declined. I am not an athlete but here is an example here from someone who is. Please do your research before you damage your body like I have.

  • Error:- Brazil were not the defending Olympic champions in 2012, Argentina won the 2008 Olympics. Brazil won their first Olympics gold in 2016.

  • The studies Ive heard referenced concerning targeted weight loss concluded that fat gets deposited in a certain order and comes off in reverse order. The differences are between people, not routines. Given that study you showed had a small sample, it wouldn’t be surprising if they had just had people who lost weight in their legs first.

    Also, HIIT wouldn’t work so well if targeted fat loss was possible since it relies on the idea of fat being released into the bloodstream at one intensity and burned in another.

    It also doesn’t make sense to say that the far is released from a far cell and is picked up immediately by the cells around it to use as fuel. If that were the case, we would see fat loss in patterns related to blood perfusion.

  • I find that focusing on a mind muscle connection in my glutes helps my strength in the squat and deadlift. Also helps with any compound pulling movement. As far as bench and any upper body push movement is concerned, there is no difference.

    My two cents.

  • It’s still shock me just how lots of people do not know about Episoketren System even though lots of people improve their soccer skills using it using it. Thanks to my friend who told me about this. I have earn the respect and admiration of my friends and other players.

  • Great fan, love your studies to back it up, ive searched and searched through videos and maybe had a thought plan on the “V-Cut” in the hips and lower abdominal area that you see a lot of Hollister models have. Wondered if you had maybe an idea on how to work on getting this cut through diet, and exercises? Trying to start up on YouTube for the first time and get some gym videos in. Thanks.

  • i know that this is super late but this is so good for young athletes like me, this helped so so so much.
    This is great for in my future t think about this is awesome thankyou.

  • I disagree with the firsts statement, breakfast is the most important meal. I just have mine at 16:00, as the meaning of breakfast is the break the fast, no matter then time of day

  • It’s a Lie.
    It improves SHORT TERM.
    “How does it happen?”
    It is a fasting mimicking state. You go into “hunting mode”.
    This gives you additional Adrenaline and a “high”.
    Plant based intervals are great.
    PRO LONGED you run into deficiencies.
    You literally Burn yourself out.

  • So……. I drank my first redbull tday and it was awsime. Still a little shaken but I was so focused.

    For those of you who think I’m joking I’m not.

  • Caffeine is a diuretic. By definition, it increases urine outtake. You can even experiment this yourself. Try just a cup of water, about an hour after waking up vs. just a cup of coffee, about an hour after waking up. I went to the source in the article and the study was in 2000, with just 18 subjects. This is a severely small sample size and the abstract even ends with “Further research is needed to confirm these results.” I love your videos but the thing about caffeine is simply wrong.

  • I have a teaspoon and a half of moccona strong roast (freeze dried) with just enough hot water (below boiling point, maybe around 70 degrees Celsius) to dissolve the coffee crystals, then add cold milk to an inch from the top of a medium sized mug/cup. Thats my perfect caffeine boost ��

  • Hi

    I really enjoy your videoes and I think they have the top quality.
    I was wondering whether you could research the best methods for building pure strength and power, for example for athletes that need to stay somehow slim, but have strong muscles. Soccer player, baskeball players ect. I would really appreciate that

  • Garbage. Humans are omnivores. Stop polluting the minds of people with this vegan nonsense. I suppose the billions of insects and hundreds of millions of rodents killed while farming your vegetables don’t count as “sentient beings”? Eat grass fed beef on sustainable ranches and you’ll only kill 1 animal.

  • COLUMBUS, Ohio – Doubling or even nearly tripling saturated fat in the diet does not drive up total levels of saturated fat in the blood, according to a controlled diet study.

    However, increasing levels of carbohydrates in the diet during the study promoted a steady increase in the blood of a fatty acid linked to an elevated risk for diabetes and heart disease.

    The finding “challenges the conventional wisdom that has demonized saturated fat and extends our knowledge of why dietary saturated fat doesn’t correlate with disease,” said senior author Jeff Volek, a professor of human sciences at The Ohio State University.

    Jeff Volek
    “It’s unusual for a marker to track so closely with carbohydrate intake, making this a unique and clinically significant finding. As you increase carbs, this marker predictably goes up,” Volek said.The researchers found that total saturated fat in the blood did not increase – and went down in most people – despite being increased in the diet when carbs were reduced. Palmitoleic acid, a fatty acid associated with unhealthy metabolism of carbohydrates that can promote disease, went down with low-carb intake and gradually increased as carbs were re-introduced to the study diet.In the study, participants were fed six three-week diets that progressively increased carbs while simultaneously reducing total fat and saturated fat, keeping calories and protein the same.

    When that marker increases, he said, it is a signal that an increasing proportion of carbs are being converted to fat instead of being burned as fuel. Reducing carbs and adding fat to the diet in a well-formulated way, on the other hand, ensures the body will promptly burn the saturated fat as fuel – so it won’t be stored.

    “When you consume a very low-carb diet your body preferentially burns saturated fat,” Volek said. “We had people eat 2 times more saturated fat than they had been eating before entering the study, yet when we measured saturated fat in their blood, it went down in the majority of people. Other traditional risk markers improved, as well.”

    The research is published in the Nov. 21, 2014, issue of the journal PLOS ONE.

    Volek and colleagues recruited 16 adults for the study, all of whom had metabolic syndrome, defined as the presence of at least three of five factors that increase the risk for heart disease and diabetes (excess belly fat, elevated blood pressure, low “good” cholesterol, insulin resistance or glucose intolerance, and high triglycerides).

    After getting them to a baseline reduced-carb diet for three weeks, researchers fed the participants the exact same diets, which changed every three weeks, for 18 weeks. The diets started with 47 grams of carbs and 84 grams of saturated fat each day, and ended with 346 carb grams per day and 32 grams daily of saturated fat.

    Each day’s meals added up to 2,500 calories and included about 130 grams of protein. The highest-carb level represented 55 percent of daily calories, which roughly matches the estimated daily percentage of energy provided by carbs in the American diet.

    Compared to baseline, there were significant improvements in blood glucose, insulin and blood pressure that were similar across diets. Participants, on average, lost almost 22 pounds by the end of the trial.

    When looking at palmitoleic acid, however, the scientists found that it consistently decreased on the high-fat/low-carb diet in all participants. The fatty acid then showed a step-wise increase in concentration in the blood as carbs were progressively added to the diet. Elevated levels of palmitoleic acid in the blood have been linked to obesity and higher risk for inflammation, insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, metabolic syndrome, type-2 diabetes, heart disease and prostate cancer.

    The study does not address what happens to palmitoleic acid levels when high carbs are combined with a diet high in saturated fat. Instead, Volek hoped to identify the carb-intake point at which participants began to store fat.

    “That turned out to be highly variable,” he said. “Everyone showed increased palmitoleic acid levels as carbs increased, but values varied widely between individuals, especially at the highest carb intake. This is consistent with the idea that people vary widely in their tolerance to carbohydrates.”

    Participants’ existing health risks were not a factor in the study because everyone ate the exact same diet for 18 weeks. Their bodies’ responses to the food were the focus of the work.

    “There is widespread misunderstanding about saturated fat. In population studies, there’s clearly no association of dietary saturated fat and heart disease, yet dietary guidelines continue to advocate restriction of saturated fat. That’s not scientific and not smart,” Volek said. “But studies measuring saturated fat in the blood and risk for heart disease show there is an association. Having a lot of saturated fat in your body is not a good thing. The question is, what causes people to store more saturated fat in their blood, or membranes, or tissues?

    “People believe ‘you are what you eat,’ but in reality, you are what you save from what you eat,” he said. “The point is you don’t necessarily save the saturated fat that you eat. And the primary regulator of what you save in terms of fat is the carbohydrate in your diet. Since more than half of Americans show some signs of carb intolerance, it makes more sense to focus on carb restriction than fat restriction.”

    Volek sees this palmitoleic acid as a potential biomarker to signal when the body is converting carbs to fat, an early event that contributes to what he calls “metabolic mayhem.”

    “There is no magical carb level, no cookie-cutter approach to diet, that works for everyone,” he said. “There’s a lot of interest in personalized nutrition, and using a dynamically changing biomarker could provide some index as to how the body is processing carbohydrates.”

  • Honestly thought it was a good talk. Very refreshing to hear. As a college athlete, sometimes I forget the simple mental aspect of success.

  • Me drinking beer all day at the lake.

    Me drinking 2 monster hydrates
    with vodka around midnight.

    Me on the couch in fetal position having my wife hold me lake a baby while I’m contemplating an ambulance ride for 2 hours.

    It attacks some and others never feel a thing. I’ll still do a few Vegas bomb shots but no more giant energy cocktails.

    Moderation is key.

  • I love how I’m drinking bang energy drink right now and it says not intended for people individuals under the age of 18 and they advertise it on tick tock

  • Summary of this abysmal Tedx Talk about Sport Psychology from Inside the Mind of a Winner:
    1. Mexicans are better at soccer than Brazilians
    2. What are in his pockets?
    3. Factors that are linked to success in sport: Motivation, Confidence, Performance Knowledge, Routines, Anxiety Management
    4. For motivation, set a SMARTER goal: Specific, Meaningful, Agreed, Relevant, Time-Specific, Engaging, Recorded
    5. Improve confidence through experience, “modelling” (observation, imagery, self-talk), and feedback
    6. Use imagery for mental preparation and rehearsal, especially useful for visualizing obstacles and barriers to overcome to be successful
    7. Use self-talk for motivation, focusing, and calming oneself
    8. There are numerous relaxation techniques for anxiety management: breathing, stretching, relaxing the muscles, listening to music, and meditation
    9. Never found what was in his pockets…

  • Do popular training program like Episoketren System really work and if so, how effective are they? We have noticed numerous awesome things about this popular training program.

  • All energy drinks are poison. The CEO of these companies are making billions of dollars. And ppl are stupid to buy them,fuck em. I only drink water

  • Science shows, you have no idea what you are talking about. We evolved to eat meat, a LOT of meat.

  • They can also have a stroke which happened to my daughter’s dad. He was 40 years old, didn’t drink alcohol or smoke(he smoked but had quit for two years before this happened). He used to only drink monster drinks all day. He was playing drums in 100 degree weather and had a stroke. He is now disabled. He can enunciate words but the words don’t make sense when strung together. He has seizures now from the stroke. His life, as he knew it, is over he can’t drive because of the seizures and he cannot communicate successfully with anyone. So, keep drinking those red bulls and monsters and maybe you will get rewarded the same way he did. Oh, and he was physically in shape..not ovese…nowhere near obese

  • Here are a few ways to become mentally strong:

    1. Be giving/volunteer: Join a group and go to volunteer in a large scale disaster dedicating a week to doing nothing but helping others. Lifting others is always an uplifting experience and spending a week at your own expense to help others earning nothing but finding it to be a more rewarding experience than working for money as usual really frees us from capitalism. Spending a week living and working with people many of whom have lost everything including loved ones really helps us appreciate every single thing and every moment in life as well. The inner happiness from selflessly helping others in times of great need is one that stays with us forever.

    2. Fast: Study intermittent fasting to learn of the benefits of 48 hour or longer fasts. Fasting for days teaches us we’re stronger than we thought, both mentally and physically, including the mental challenge of fasting itself. Once we know we can fast and that fasting is healthy, controlling our weight and health become much easier.

    3. Fight sports: Learn fight sports of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), boxing, Muay Thai, kickboxing, wrestling, Judo, etc and actually spar, roll and compete on any level. Fight sports are wonderful for teaching both self-confidence as well as humility.

    4. Challenge yourself, always.

  • The mental aspect is indeed the hardest part about sports. Pushing yourself physically is no biggie in comparison. Dealing with pressure from an organisation who constantly reminds you that they have invested a lot of money and resources in you is what broke me. I badly needed a sports psychologist.

  • 4:21 that is not how you boil vegetables, Ha

    As a chef blanching (30-60 sec boil in salt water) helps preserve the nutrients since the salt water creates a barrier around the vegetable allowing the nutrients to remain within.

  • Everyone is obsessed with dehydration. Look into EAH. I know; it doesn’t seem applicable to body builders, but I sweat all day long working and then train. Drinking too much can be fatal and noone ever says it.

  • That is a lie!
    They quickly have performance drops, usually followed by career ending injuries that do not heal, until they abandon the deficient vegan cult diet.

  • what i learned was this from playing basketball i lossed i score like 2 or 3 point in a game but the whole time in that game i found my weak spots i went online found a denfinsive drills and did it everyday i think the mindset is to find where you did wrong and work on it like kobe said you got to look at your weakness and fix it

  • You should be the worlds best dr too many people consume meat processed foods salt sugar sedentary lifestyle your books are amazing

  • One thing about water intake and health. I get kidney stones. My urologist wants me urinating 2.5 liters a day. That’s a huge intake to b able to pee out that much.

  • The video seems perfectly interesting and does a well enough job of keeping my attention. I don’t understand how you people can’t bother 12 minutes or so to learn a new item of info.

  • I learned that the next time I give a talk to a large audience to not start a sentence to the far left side and end the sentence to the far right side.

  • I know my country isn’t in the conditions that I can play for my country internationally. But for my juniors I will say for sport the biggest thing is that don’t think you lose now. Until the last second has been ended. It isn’t words it is the truth. Courageous people rule the world rather than talented. Because you overcome anything through your brave mindset. I am playing in Pakistan for my city’s club that is Karachi. My first 50 games isn’t good. 50 games just 8 goals and 3 assists. I started playing for the club at the age of 16. Now I am 20. Make yourself A BIG GAME PLAYER means ready yourself for the champion at any second of the time. Today I have played 164 games scored 90 goals.82 goals in last 114 games. And 46 assists. Won 3 titles and have 2 times best player of the City. This season i have played 41 games and scored 36 goals with 9 assists. My best players are Ronaldo Ibrahimovic and none others than Messi.

  • I’m just wishing red bull would make red bull without the caffeine and taurine. I love the taste but it makes me all jittery so I can’t drink it.

  • I was on keto and lost 47 lbs but developed steatosis while on the diet. (Was having right upper quadrant pain and steatosis was found by ultrasound plus liver enzymes were elevated). Afraid of keto now. Went off the diet, gained the weight back but liver enzymes are back to normal. Between a rock and a hard spot and don’t know what to do but want to get the weight off again.

  • elite athletes don´t go that low on carbs. Get all athletes on the last olimpics and I doubt a single one was on a keto diet. maybe not all carbs are equal, I´m sure no athlete makes candy their nutional base so for sure eliminating those carbs will be good but what about low GI carbs? what about fresh greens…fruits do they have to be removed from diet? does not soun something mankind can achieve… and.. where you get all that fat without adding protein and carbs, cheese has some carbs, procesed food aof any kind have carbs…if you eat eggs you eat a lot of protein too..nuts have a carbs also.. so.. what is the diet about? drinking olive oil? I´m serious I would like to see what a practical diet looks like

  • Hey Jeff great content. Can you do a video on whether there is any benefit to periodically changing your routine and performing new movement patterns for a given body part? Is there any detriment to applying progressive overload to the same routine for say 3 years? Is there any scientific basis for this “confusing the muscle” jibberish? Thanks

  • I love your videos and you come across as positive, informed and sober in your analysis. I did want to weigh in on the “coffee” thing. As a trainer and athlete who LOVES coffee, I really do have to have that glass of water instead sometimes, or i feel like I’m pushing myself in the red-as in, it feels like the acid in my body has built up too much. I think if you only ever substituted coffee for water, one might get f’d up pretty well. Cheers.

  • How did you train your speech? Who do you follow to improve speech? Since he changed his partner, he became more clear and productive.

  • Kudos for the Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you tried Marnaavid Unexplainable Intervention (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great one off product for learning how to hack your flow state without the hard work. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my cousin after a lifetime of fighting got astronomical success with it.

  • Dr. Steve Phinney’s lecture was very engrossing, and really adds to my understanding of low carb diets. Thank you so much for uploading it. However, much of the talk of ketosis, within the framework of athletic performance, is done with regards to endurance athletes, like long distance runners or long distance cyclists. I think a good area of study would be to apply keto-adaptation on athletic activities that emphasize explosive power over endurance sports like sprinting, gymnastics, and weight lifting. The common retort from many of the detractors of keto-adaptation, even if they concede that it can work for endurance athletes, is that it can’t possible work for sports that favor quick bursts of force over long term stamina, because such power oriented moves can only be fueled by “quick burning fuels”, of which only carbohydrates are said to be an adequate fuel source. It would be interesting to see someone do an experiment with power lifters or sprinters, to see if the 4 to 6 week period of keto-adaptation would allow such athletes to maintain their baseline performance in the same manner that it did for endurance athletes. 

  • This video did not age well. Many vegan athletes and Gamechanhers athletes are now eating meat. Vegan bodybuilder Kai Green is now selling beef.

  • “the ensuing comments that followed the video…” you know someone is trying to sound smart when there’s so much redundancy in their wording

  • I don’t get why people don’t think this is a good video.. I think he covers the main areas in which sports psychology can help with. Such as the areas needing work on for perpetration (goal setting, confidence, motivation), the consequences associated with loss, and how to get back up understanding the opponent and performance day psychy management. He specifies that sports psychologists provide techniques and strategies which athletes NEED and DO and gives an example of Michael Phelps and Blanka Vlasic. So yes, he talks about how a sports psychologist can help but the only reason why this job exists is because of the athletes/human mind!

  • 3:40 in and he is still on his introduction; I still don’t know what sports psychology is 3 minutes into a 12-minute video; my God.

  • I’ve been searching for a healthy way to eat and still enjoy meat, I thought this sounded Great?  As for me just the thought of having to eat fat turns my stomach. Then to take away oats which are known for heart health makes no sense to me anyways…back to the drawing board  LOL

  • Regarding the milk study, it has already found that milk contains high amount of hormones,fat and puss. The study you refer to might consider almost a million people, i found suggest you look up the study that was done in china over millions of people, which showed that increased daily intake of animal proteins lead to more cancer. The problem with the study was done on milk it only counts for several years at the most. Most of the effects of our nutrient is over years. So every study which make claims after just a couple of months or weeks is simply way to soon about their conclusion. This count for as well animal proponents as plant proponents. Just stating that a study heavily funded by the dairy industry will not be biased is just stating i am a religious person but will not be biased against someone without a religion. We all carry bias in our selves, and it has been shown time after time that studies funded by food industry is heavily favoring them as being healthy. I not for vilifying a certain food group. Our ancestors lived for centuries on that food. That said, i think you should eat everything in moderation.

  • Can you do one on soy protein? There’s lots of controversies on that topic & that many companies are starting to use it in protein bars etc.

  • Six months ago, the doctor told me I needed to lose weight and had moderate high blood pressure. I strictly followed the plant-based vegan diet recommended by Dr. Greger and others. Six months later:: no weight loss and higher blood pressure. I’m going Paleo, and if I die then I die. At least I will die thin, happy, and not hungry.

  • Honestly, I feel fine whenever I have red bull. I don’t have one everyday but I do like them. Since I’m a kid, I researched about red bull. For my age the daily cap of caffeine is 100mg. In one red bull can there is only 80mg. I don’t feel like crap after. I feel like how I usually am when drinking soda. If you like the taste but are afraid of the health risks, have it in moderation.

  • The problem with this video is, they say to many of these drinks. How many is to many exactly. I guess they don’t know. So if you are tall can you drink more? How much more?

  • I fast daily which helps me enjoy food. The bro diet counting Marco’s through day messes up my relationship with food. Not saying you dont count Marco’s fasting but you have more options then spreading it out throughout day.

  • After 2 years of daily enery drink drinking I have heart aches, chest aches, vertigo, nausea, headache with stabbing pain, fever(almost every afternoon) diarrhea or constipation, strange aches in my whole body. When I realised, what is going on, energy drink nearly killed me. Please dont drink it!

  • Myth myth myth mythology whatever people where drinking milk ages ago they live longer than us,they felt stronger than we are damn! What must we eat another youtuber sounding smart mmmhh be logic also ma friend.

  • I drink a bull like everyday guys this shit bad for u stop thinking this shit propaganda or something this videos made by Dartmouth Hitchcock which is Dartmouth’s hospital, one of the best in the US

  • given the prevalence of PED’s at the highest levels of all sport, amateur and pro, psychology is important, but so is chemistry. ))

  • It takes about 10 GRAMS of caffeine to overdose. So 200 MILIGRAMS (or less than) in 1 can of red bull is literaly nothing. Red bull is great, just drink it in moderation. I only drink 1 can a day on weekdays to help get through work. I don’t drink it on weekends. I have no problems. If your drinking like 5-10 a day then of course that’s gonna fuck you up
