Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Joining the show today are two powerhouses in the low-carb/keto and exercise world—Drs. Ben Bocchicchio and Ted Naiman.

Dr. Ben Bocchicchio is a living legend in the fitness and nutrition world. Since founding the concept of sports conditioning in 1973, Dr. Ben has been using his vast knowledge to help people with weight reduction, cosmetic enhancement, general fitness, and rehabilitation. He is the creator of the revolutionary S.Ma.R.T.-EX™ training system and has been inducted into the National Fitness Hall of Fame.

Dr. Ted Naiman is a board-certified Family Medicine physician in the department of Primary Care at a leading major medical center in Seattle. His research and medical practice are focused on the practical implementation of diet and exercise for health optimization.

In their conversation, Brian, Tro, Ben, and Ted talk about how to start exercising when you are just starting out, interval versus zone 2 training, how behavior is related to exercise, the relationship between certain types of exercise and hunger, doing more exercise versus doing harder exercise, exercising with the goal of greater and more diverse mobility, exercise for relative versus absolute strength, to what degree (if any) volume and variety matter when it comes to exercise, how to separate your exercise times for maximal effect, exercise supplements like creatine, protein consumption targets for various goals, protein absorption, and adding fats.
