Listener Q&A: Bone Broth vs. Eating Bones Kevin asks: Hi Ben, I like to eat a lot of tendons, cartilage, bone marrow and what not, as I know you like to. But I wonder if that's as effective a way of getting the nutrients as making a bone broth in the pressure cooker for 2-3 hours. In my response, I recommend: - Kettle & Fire Bone Broth (code GREENFIELD for 10% off) Spot-reducing belly fat? John asks: After being introduced to a high fat, low carb and intermittent fasting diet several years ago, I found it was easy to maintain an ideal body weight. Most of my body is pretty lean (160-170 pounds) but when I measure my stomach using a caliper, it seems to come in around 15%. I've always heard that belly fat is one of the last places men lose fat, but I'd rather not drop to 145 pounds just to see abs. There seems to be a community of people online who think you can spot-reduce fat. Do you think that's possible, and if so, what techniques would you recommend? In my response, I recommend: - Glycogen depletion/exercise combo protocols (e.g. Tour De France riders) - Localized Cryo - Localized Photobiomodulation - Localized EMS How To Recover From A TBI/Concussion Fast Mark asks: A good friend of mine just got into a really serious car accident. She's been told she has some minor brain damage that's going to be permanent as well as some spinal injuries. I was thinking about some of the interviews you've had with Rhonda Patrick and other experts, and I knew there was some nutritional advice you gave regarding brain injuries. Can you give a brief summary of what you would advise for a recovery program for my friend?
