The Model Health Show

Ben Greenfield walks his talk. He's one of the top health and fitness experts in the world because he's experimented with thousands of things firsthand and monitored the results that he got with his body. What works is shared ravenously; what doesn't is discarded. Pretty simple formula, but you've got to have some serious kahunas to do it.

I'm truly excited to have Ben on because he has a wealth of knowledge in so many different areas of health. Today you're going to learn some effective (yet little known) strategies for fat loss, surprising facts about building muscle, and even the real reason why Ben partakes in heart-pumping endurance events like triathlons and Spartan races (and it's not about fitness).
