Join Ben Greenfield—sports nutritionist, coach, and Ironman triathlete—as he shares his tips on using blood work for maximum health and performance in a short video walkthrough. Smart and methodical, his advice and methods will get you to Superman-status in no time.
To quote his own mission, Ben is here to teach you “how to get your body performing at peak capacity, with maximum fat burning efficiency and ideal hormonal and health status, in the safest and fastest way possible.”
Because his human guinea-pig experiments and extreme athletic endeavors can take a toll on his body, it’s important that he keep close tabs on his health—both inside and out. That’s why he tests his blood 3-4 times a year with the WellnessFX Performance Package (the comprehensive panel recommended for athletes and bio-hackers who want to take their health and fitness to the next level).
Join Ben as he takes you a guided tour through his biomarkers and discusses:
- How he keeps his trigs low and HDL sky-high on a high-fat diet
- How he closely monitors his cholesterol, keeping it at a relatively high level to allow body functions that require fat to run smoothly
- The proper way to eat carbs to maintain healthy lipid, inflammation, and thyroid levels while maintaining insulin sensitivity
- How training for an Ironman (and then stopping training for an Ironman) can affect the inner workings of the body
- What happens to inflammation (hs-CRP), cortisol, and testosterone levels before, during, and after extreme training
- Why curcumin is part of his supplement stack
- How he plans to reduce his chronically high cortisol levels
- How to maintain healthy body pH while training
Check out what Ben has to say and join his inner circle to ask questions about your own training regimen and biomarkers.
