Featured Topic: Tim Ferriss and Ray Cronise Explain How To Manipulate Your Body’s Temperature To Burn More Fat.

In my recent book review of Tim Ferriss’s 4-Hour Body (read by clicking here) , I mentioned that a chapter in his book is devoted to manipulating your body’s temperature to enhance weight loss. In this interview, I talk more about the topic of cold and fat loss with Tim Ferriss, and NASA materials engineer Ray Cronise.

Listener Q&A:

======================================
[contact-form 3 "AskBen"]
======================================

Patrick asks via Twitter @bengreenfield : I know you’re not the biggest fan of breakfast cereals, but what’s your take on Kellog’s new offering Fiber Plus AO?

Joe asks: 1) What are your thoughts about taking a carb blocker?; 2) You recommend getting a juicer – I heard that juicers weren’t really that good for you.

Chelsea asks: I’m a runner, and I want to do squats to build strength and prevent injury. The problem is that my flexibility is so bad that I can’t get into a full squat. Even without weight, if I try to squat all the way down I either have to go up on my toes or use something for balance or I’ll fall over. I know I need to work on flexibility in general, but do you have any tips for working on getting from wussy 1/2 way squats to being able to do a full squat? Even if it isn’t necessary to get the full benefit of the squatting exercise, being able to do a full squat looks more impressive.

Kyle asks: Have you ever heard of the moomiyo supplement? If so, or after some research, what are your opinions on it for use by an endurance athlete?

Amy asks: Hi Ben, I have a question for you about the Monster Lo-Carb energy drink. This topic was discussed in a forum on the Runner’s World site and the overall message I got is that they aren’t that bad, in moderation, that is. The sugar is rather low, at 3g (total 6g, since it is 2 servings) and there are 20 total calories. From that look at it, the Monster Lo-Carb doesn’t seem so bad… but is there something hiding from me (I am not a master of nutritional labels)?

In my response to Amy, I mention delta-E energy drink.

Ernesto asks: 1) My high school cross country coach would preach to us that we don’t look behind us during a race as this shaves seconds off our time. Can you verify this? 2) also, he would tell us that drinking any carbonated drink would cause us to get stitches and slow us down during practice. I found this to be true for myself. Is this the case or is it all in my head? 3) and lastly, you may or may not have heard of steve magness, the author of the website the science of running. In it, he wrote an article that running 4.5 miles twice in a day is better than 9 miles all at once and can lead to greater fitness gains. Can you back this up?

Jennifer asks: The only foods I am allowed to eat are the ‘simple’ carbs. I have a permanent small bowel obstruction and have to remain on a low fiber/low residue diet for the rest of my life. This includes white bread, white rice, white potatoes, white meat, white pasta, etc. Absolutely no fruits and vegetables, cooked or raw, no whole grains of any kind, no nuts or seeds, etc. I can’t even eat applesauce! I’m at my wits end about what to do. I’ve seen nutritionists and they quite frankly don’t know what to do with me because they don’t believe that I cannot eat anything that would be considered healthy. Everything I eat is going to make me gain so much weight. I also cannot exercise in the way that I would like. I’ve had so many surgeries, all of my abdominal organs are glued together with adhesions. I have to stay away from anything involving my core. I’m sure there’s a way around this but I have not been able to find the help that I need to get started. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Marco asks: What can i feed my dad? He had a brain stroke and is in bed all day. I read that the brain is capable to heal itself, but do you recommend any supplements for his brain?

Sam asks: Just got a type 3 separated shoulder in a bike crash. No surgery right now, but doctors will reassess in 6 weeks. Doctors advised to start rehab exercises as soon as pain subsides. Your advice on the best exercises?

David Venables asks: For the Marathon de Sables, I need to be self sufficient (except for water) for 7 days whilst running between 150 – 160 miles in the Sahara dessert. The shortest day is half marathon distance, whilst the longest day is 50 miles. Light weight, calorie and nutrient rich food will therefore be essential for keeping me fueled. Do you have any recommendations?

In my response to David, I recommend the LivingFuel SuperGreens supplement.

Pamela asks: What you do think about the athleticgreens from Tim Ferris’s book? Also, do you feel that this supplement would affect people with hashimoto’s (hypothryroidism) or have an interaction with synthroid?
