As compiled, edited and sometimes read by Brock, the Ben Greenfield Fitness Podcast "sidekick".

Zach says @ 00:23:02 He has heard talk about Deer Antler Velvet Spray and wants to know more about it.

Allie asks @ 00:29:06 Is wondering how to use  Generation UCAN Superstarch to fuel for a marathon. ~ In my response I reference Generation Ucan Sports Drink Mix

Tony asks @ 00:29:22 Has been using  UCAN Superstarch and is wondering if Ucan only works if you are in a fat burning state and if he might have taken in too many carbs to use it effectively. ~ In my response I reference this Endurance Supplement Pack.

Jason asks @ 00:43:25 Wants to know how Jessa got rid of her migraines. He heard she did it by altering her alkalosis and acidosis using only food sources. ~ In my response, I mention the How To Get Rid Of Migraine Headaches episode and also transdermal magnesium.

Ken asks @ 00:49:12 Would like to know what you think of the moxymonitor?

Valerie asks @ 00:55:33 Wants to know your opinion of activity trackers like the FitBit. Are they accurate, do they work well, are they worth it?

Jenna asks @ 01:02:16 She is an underweight 19-year-old triathlete and is looking to build muscle mass (her BMI is below healthy level). She would like some specific help putting together a plan that would accelerate the process. ~ In my response I recommend doing 24 hour urine testing. If not available, do a performance panel. Also look at this muscle gain pack. I also recommend and Dan John's book interventions.
