    Here Dr. John discusses somatypes and nutritional requirements, hypertrophy, testosterone, insulin, cortisol, and the benefits of marajuana for fat loss and stress relief. It's an awesome interview from start to finish and there is some great information included, even for the vets. Anyone who is looking to learn anything from the basics to the very advanced should really check this out.

    Im listening to it now and he seems very knowledgable. I had never really read any of his stuff until recently. I like his 7 habits thing. Very sensible. His Shredded diet looks like something i jave done in the past. Dave Palumbo has a similiar diet but it has slightly higher protein ratios and is for getting into contest shape.

    The interview was only meant to be free to selected people that signed up for it in advance. It's taken down now because the interview is going to be sold along with many others (Berardi is not the one selling it). Considering that, I'm not too sure that it was cool to post it on a public forum.

    Seems to me that no one got to see it that wasn't supposed to and posting about it in a public forum will only generate more revenue for whoever is sellling it. I'm guessing they'll be ok with it.

    Now that it's a dead link, I agree. The first 24 hours post interview it wasn't dead though. Maybe I'm just being a party pooper... Who knows, but I think it's not much different than posting free music or movies... it was generated for profits.

    I agree, but if they plan to sell access, a little free pub never hurts and I think they knew that when they made it available. The entertainment industry does that all the time. By getting posted here, it was exposed to thousands of folks who wouldn't have even known of its existence.

    Just my $.02.

    You have valid points and, besides, it's a dead link now anyway so it can only help at this point.

    Ill try to relay what I remembered from it that goes beyond the basics most people around here know. I have an outstanding memory so most of this stuff is just as JB said:

    In discussing testosterone and T-supplements, Berardi started that most people taking these supplements don't even need them, and are doing more harm than good by adding too much T to their bloodstreams, inhibiting the bodies natural production.

    He said that the natural low testosterone levels associated with high frequency, or overtraining is also a myth blown out of proportion. While it is true that the blood testosterone levels are much lower, the testosterone receptors in the body are dramatically increased. The lack of a high presence of T in the blood is due to the T binding to these receptors, thus stimulating grown/progress.

    Testosterone in the blood is not what determines grown and progress, but the binding of it to its receptors that does. Having low blood T levels is perfectly fine and expected during periods of intense training.

    He states those with true T deficiencies, however, do benefit tremendously from supplementation or replacement therapy. In some cases, this lack of natural testosterone has inhibited growth and progress almost entirely until the levels were increased through drugs/supplements.

    Steroids, on the other hand, increase natural T levels from upwards of a few hundred to a few thousand percent, and in these extreme cases, growth is inevitable.

    When discussing the number one factor that could result in plateaus in body composition and strength, Berardi said that stress is the number one factor. Stress has been linked to fat retention, lack of muscle growth, lack of strength increases, among many other CVDs and cancers.

    We all deal with stress regularly, but it's recommended to find healthy ways to relax and relieve yourself of it. Often times, by changing nothing in diet or workout program and just by managing stress we can overcome plateaus. Obviously, if your diet and workout routine suck, then that's another story.

    JB stated that although he does not recommend this, most competitive powerlifters and bodybuilders smoke marijuana regularly to relieve stress. He then went on to state the benefits of cannabis as a stress relief tool, but stated several times that he is not condoning the use of it. He said there are many ways to relieve stress without the use of cannabis, but it is an outstanding tool nonetheless.

    He then went on to discuss insulin sensitivity, but there wasn't anything special that I remember that hasn't been said anywhere else. He did recommended alpha lipoic acid (not alpha linoleic acid) in addition to fish oil, but anyone eating clean already should be getting in their lipoic acid through natural sources such as spinach and broccoli. He even recommends supplementing with it for those with very poor insulin sensitivity. He also states that most people aren't taking enough fish oil to see ****bolic or insulin sensitivity related changes (10-12 grams).



    If I remember anything else throughout the day Ill be sure to update this. Hope that information is as useful for you as it was for me.
