Addicted to Fitness Show Notes – From the Vault: Sleep Supplements & Biggest Loser

Guest post by Shannon.

As we draw closer to the holidays and the close of another year, it’s a great time for a flashback.

One of the great things about podcasting is that you have a store of regular discussions to look back on and relive. Thus, we bring you one of the Vault episode from the earlier rendition of the podcast known as the ETT Wrap Show.

In this podcast episode, Nick and I review his and the ETT race team’s performances in the Mud Endeavor 5k, how he avoided serious injury and how this race gives other obstacle course races, like Tough Mudder, a run for their money.

On this week's ETT Wrap Show, @shannonjp and I discuss ETT's experience at @mudendeavor, the @biggestlosernbc TV show and how quality of calories is more important than quantity of calories. I do have to warn you, there are a few instances of "potty mouth" on this episode. If you have a fitness and/or health question you'd like us to address on a future podcast OR tell us to quit it with the garage talk, leave a comment below.

NOTE: The next ETT team competition is going to be the 2017 Gasparilla 5K on Feb. 25th in Tampa. Want to join the team? Register here and when you choose a team, look for Elemental Training Tampa.

We also get into my constant battle with getting back to a normal sleep routine after enjoying a total lack of sleep structure on vacation. Could simply getting out of an established routine be to blame or is work stress adding to the challenge? We reference a Primal Blueprint podcast and explain the cortisol effect and what supplements can help depleted adrenal glands.

Getting more into news, we chatted about a New York Times article describing former “The Biggest Loser” contestants’ post-show weight gain. A bit of friendly debate around whether a calorie deficit diet really is the best way to keep weight off, follows. It’s a common practice by celebrity trainers, but health experts don’t necessarily agree, opting for quality over quantity.

ETT Wrap Show Ep.17

This week’s episode features a recap of ETT’s first team competition, the Mud Endeavor 5k. I discuss the highlights, and a few lowlights, from the race including how I averted severely injuring myself. In addition to the recap, Shannon and I discuss sleep supplements, The Biggest Loser TV show and why the quality of your calories is more important than the quantity of your calories. Also, just so you’re not caught off guard, Shannon and I spout out a few risquĂ© words in this episode. What can I say? We get emotional sometimes.
