About the episode:

This week I had the opportunity to speak with Robb Wolf, author of Wired to Eat, the Paleo Solution, and the podcast by the same name.

Robb was one of the first CrossFit affiliate owners, and original Subject Matter Expert on nutrition for CrossFit HQ, and an all around wealth of knowledge who is one of the most respected people in the industry.

[Carb testing, keto, and the future of nutrition with @robbwolf #beyondmacrospodcast”]

After reading Robb’s most recent book, Wired to Eat, I found the concept of his 7-day carb test absolutely fascinating. I’ve had over 50 clients run the test on themselves now with interesting results.

Robb and I talked extensively about the rationale behind the method of carb testing suggested in the book, what effects people’s individual carb tolerance, when ketogenic diets are beneficial, and the future of nutrition based on the patterns he’s observing.

This week our show is brought to you by us, Beyond Macros, a nutrition coaching company that helps you make a sustainable transformation through realistic habit changes rather than restrictive dieting.
