33 – Interview with fitness instructor Josef Brandenburg


(duration 34:30)

In this show we explore the nature of health and fitness training from an expert’s perspective

Josef’s fitness blog and site

Aerobic exercise is not all it’s cracked up to be, and it might be making you hungrier and thus causing binge eating

Weight and high intensity shorter training is better for health and fitness than lots of endurance exercising

Try to avoid all those crappy carbs, such as lots of bread, grains, and cereals

The priority should be minimizing your insulin secretion, even though e.g. high quality meats are better than not so much

You can’t take at face value the results of studies reported by the mainstream media

Falsehoods are still being promoted in nutrition textbooks!

You don’t have to starve yourself and suffer in order to lose weight; just change the types of food you’re eating

Putting fat people on treadmills doesn’t really help them lose their extra fat

Personal trainer certifications aren’t good ways to judge knowledge and competence

Isolation exercises can fall short when it comes to overall fitness and “toning” muscles

Using calipers to measure bodyfat isn’t very reliable; a measuring tape can be a useful device, though

Governmental “officials” have no business telling you what and how to eat (even though they continue to intervene)
