This is part 2 to the hugely popular episode #65, where Christian Thibaudeau (aka Vin Diesel - haha) provided a deep intro into the science and utility of Neurotyping for Training and Nutrition. If you haven’t checked it out yet - you must, It’s gold!
If #65 was gold, then this episode its PLATINUM! Honestly guys… be prepared to be blown away with science that makes sense and everyday usability to impact your mood, training, body, and life!
In this episode, Christian goes deeper on how to manage your NUTRITION (and in part your supplementation) to work with and enhance your NEUROTYPE chemistry for optimal training and dieting results.
This isn’t an abstract academic discussion - it is incredibly relatable to everyday life, helps you identify your Neurotype, and you’ll walk away with practical nutritional guidance to follow to maximise who you are.
That said, it is technical! Get ready to be hit by a train of biochemical and neurological lingo! It’s not for the faint hearted, or if you’re not able to offer a good chunk of attention. I took pages of notes - I’m now #upgradedforlife with these incredible knowledge bombs. You will be too.
But there’s more! Christian also offers some super interesting insights into muscle development, strength loss whilst dieting, benefits of fasting and what really happens to muscle mass when you cut.
