This week on Barbell Shrugged we discuss how Alex Got His Groove Back.


Unlucky-in-love grad student Alex (Alex Maclin) jets to Jamaica with his gal pal Delilah (Whoopi Goldberg) for some fun in the sun. There, the 26-year-old working man has an island fling with a new diet experiment involving measuring and weighing his food (180g Carbs, 30g Fat, 150g Protein per day). When it's time to return to Memphis, Maclin realizes that he's unleashed a new metabolism and his physique is a spitting image of it’s efficacy. But, just like any long term diet that involves weighing and measuring, does this chase for six pack abs stand a chance against everyday temptations? Or even worse, will he lose his gainz as a result?


In this show we talk about Alex's journey in the kitchen and discuss what he's learned that's worked for him in the past when it comes to eating to gain strength and keep the pounds off. Stories are shared, failures are admitted, secrets are unraveled in this epic tale of one man's journey to find his groove (in his abs).
