Welcome to the High Performance Living Podcast. This week Anna and I will be showing you how to boost your energy and metabolism, along with sharing some of the science as to how it works. 

We talk a lot about the body on the podcast, such as the digestive system, its role and how it works. What we must understand is that all of these components within the body exist to metabolise energy from the nutrients we eat.

Knowledge of the cellular machinery and metabolic pathways responsible for deriving energy from macronutrients once they reach the cells is important for us to understand. By knowing this information and how it all works together, we can really start individualise our diets.

When we quickly compare both these dieting protocols, it's clear they promote two very different eating habits and routines. So which one should you use? What's the pro's and con's to each of them? Anna Marsh and I answer these questions plus much more in this weeks episode. Get your pen and paper ready, and let the rants commence!

This week on the High Performance Living Show Anna Marsh and I are getting our geek on. Well, more so Anna, as she takes us through her latest study topic called psychoneuroimmunology. Now don’t feel too lost already – essentially this is peeling back a layer to the information that we regularly cover on the show.
