Mark Sisson runs the blog MarksDailyApple.com, where he shares his own 'Primal' take on health diet exercise stuff. He advocates a lower carbohydrate diet, with lots of vegetables, delicious dead animals, and mouth-watering saturated fat.
In my interview we talk about the importance of intense exercise, how 'chronic cardio' makes you feel like crap, and why eating dead animals won't kill you. Check it out!
Gary Taubes is a very well known science journalist. His recent books,Good Calories, Bad Calories and Why We Get Fat, have popularized low carbohydrate diets again, and he outlines precisely how carbohydrates help increase fat and encourage metabolic disorders.

Bill DeSimone is a personal trainer who's been lifting weights for about the last 40 years. Over that time he's injured himself, taken care of himself, and done a ton of research into the correct biomechanics of weightlifting.
His books Moment Arm Exerciseand Congruent Exercise explain the method of weight lifting he has come to use as a result of his desire to continue lifting and getting stronger, while also going easier on his joints. In my interview with him we talk about what makes his 'congruent' exercises easier on the joints. We also discuss good diet and training practices. Check it out!

Healthy Diet Exercise Stuff: What The Experts Say
Interviews with me!
"About 2 weeks ago I read all the ab strengthening stuff on your site because I decided I wanted to be strong, instead of having a lot of belly fat. So I started eating healthier, running, exercising, you name it - everything your site said to do to help. Now I am noticing a real difference! Thank you for making this. :D xD" ~ Julia
[This calorie calculator is] the most useful tool on the web that I can find… Also, I compared the calories calculated by your calculator to the calories calculated by the treadmill at my gym, and they're within a couple calories of each other, so yours is as accurate as we're going to get. REALLY AWESOME TOOL. I love it and depend on it. Thank you sooooo much for making this available." ~ Galit Sharon Marcus
Thank you very much, I was too lean before 2 years (55 Kgs), after the gym now I'm 72kgs, all the muscles have developed... when someone hand shakes with me it can be squeezed easily, they're making fun of me! ~ Tamil Arasan
