Listener Q&A:

As compiled, deciphered, edited and sometimes read by Rachel Browne, the NEW Podcast Sidekick.

Can Testosterone Be Too High?

Joshua says: He loves the podcast and website. His question is, he just got his blood work back and everything looks good, except his testosterone. It was 1100, which he knows is ridiculously high so it scares him. Do you have any thoughts? He's going to his doctor in a week but doesn't trust them to have a real answer to whats going on. He knows its good to have high testosterone but 1100 is over the top.

In my response, I recommend: -Sex Hormone Balance Test

Coffee Enemas 101

Yvonne says: She has a friend who does regular coffee enemas who also can't sleep at night. Is there a relationship between the enemas and the fact he can't sleep? Should he change the frequency of the enemas? He enjoys them so much because of the energy they give him. Please give us your advice.

In my response, I recommend: -My article on Bulletproof Coffee Enemas

How To Get In Running Shape Fast

Joshua says: He's decided to start running, but he's never ran further than 3 miles. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve stamina, or ways to motivate yourself to go for a run? He's not sure if he'll try to get to full marathon distance, but he'd like to get to the point where he can run for an hour without getting tired, what are your thoughts?

In my response, I recommend: -Treadmill desk article -Troy Jacobson's Runervals -30 second treadmill bursts -Elliptical trainer high-intensity intervals (including this recent study on the Elliptigo) -Incline treadmill with weighted vest -Isometric squats or isometric lunges into sprints. Very much like the Russian underground techniques here.

The 5 Best Ways To Accelerate Fat Loss

Craig says: Over the winter time he hurt his arm and fell out of taking care of himself with eating good foods and so on. Now he's 20lbs over the weight he likes to be at and hes trying to get aback on the horse. He's curious to know if you were in that position Ben, from a food, detox, fat loss perspective, what would you do, besides the obvious of eat better foods and exercise?
