Listener Q&A [00:35:31]

How Skinny Guys Can Get Big Muscles [00:35:40]

Alex says: I have been going to the gym with the goal of gaining muscle mass in my chest and shoulders but I am not seeing the gains I want. I have been watching protein and targeting my workouts. I am an ectomorph body type so is it pointless or do I just need to tweak a few things?

In my response, I recommend: -MAPS Anabolic -Dan John's "Mass Made Simple" -Get Fit Guy's Guide To Achieving Your Ideal Body -Weston A Price Dietary Guidelines -Thorne Biogest -Quicksilver Scientific Bitters #9 -Superessentials Fish Oil -Kion Colostrum -Kion Aminos -HMB/ATP -Creatine

Is GHB Safe? [00:56:40]

Anonymous says: What are your thoughts on taking GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate) as an alternative to alcohol?

In my response, I recommend: -NOW Foods GABA -Passionflower extract

What To Do After High School [01:04:51]

Eli says: It was good to see you in Toronto. I am 17-years old and finishing high school this year. My question is: if you could redo your journey from high school to now, what would you do differently? And what would you recommend for someone like me who is passionate about health and nutrition?

In my response, I recommend: -KionU -List of holistic nutrition programs -Chek certification - gives free access to lesson 1 -Book: College Disrupted by Ryan Craig -Book: A New U: Faster + Cheaper Alternatives to College -Testing Out: How to “Moneyball” Your Way to a Debt-Free College Degree -Is College for Everyone? series
