A Sane Approach to Body Recomposition – Episode 65

We see A LOT about weight loss and bulking. While both of these approaches can work, they can sometimes feel drastic when you’re in the midst of it, but there is a third option that isn’t well discussed: Body Recomposition (i.e. eating enough food to fuel your daily activities, getting stronger and losing body fat in the process). In this episode, we walk through the science of fat loss and muscle gain, and then we will dive into two methods of body recomposition: fast vs. slow. If you want to get really strong and are in it for the long haul, this episode is for you.
