This is a special episode, where Yaya and Ryan take us down the nutrition rabbit hole. The Chalk crew debunks many of the methods that surround nutrition for athletes. Ryan talks about the importance of earning your carbs after a workout, and why you don’t get carbs until you’ve trained.

Ryan and Yaya also talk about the importance of getting in fats, explaining how dietary fat actually has no relation to body fat. They discuss the ins and outs of paleo and ketogenic diets, as well as the importance of eating food, and the potential repercussions of undernourishment.

Ryan also covers how to eat out, especially dealing with peer pressure, and how lying to people about why you are eating clean is always the best route. The best ways to eat healthy is to not have shitty food!
