Erin Mackin-Diet, Power, Strength-#244-Eric welcomes Erin Mackin President of Paleo Effects to the show. We start the show off rolling with the big question I pose to Erin. How do you define strength and what changes have you made through the years via diet or training to enhance this process? Eating is the key to all of your gains. We talk about the idea of getting ripped and lean as opposed to being smooth but so much stronger in your field of strength. We see this leaned out look in so many high school football programs relying on supplements rather then eating whole foods which leads the athlete to being overpowered and broken down. Erin answers the age old question she has to ask the athlete. What do you want and what kind of athlete are you? Erin talks about the Paleo diet and her viewpoint on what to eat. She offers lots of foods to eat while stressing to maintain healthy fats in your diet. Erin addresses the best time to shuttle in carbohydrates to your body for health and function. We also discuss how many grams of protein we need per day to maintain and grow if that’s our goal. Erin is a wealth of information who has done everything she talks about on our show. Understanding the mental, physical and spiritual end of athletics makes her a very valued resource to the strength game. The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Connects Your Brain to Your Brawn.
