Episode 169: How do you Choose Between Losing Weight and Building Muscle?

podcast Jul 15, 2022

In today’s episode, Ashleigh and I are answering how to both build muscle and lose body fat. We go over specific tools for tracking food, choosing which macronutrients to focus on whether or not you’re physically active, and how supplementation isn’t the answer. 

Ashleigh is an author, speaker, podcast host, health coach, and leading authority on understanding the nutrient density of animal protein: she’s the author of one of the only nose-to-tail, organ-meat centric cookbooks in existence, called It Takes Guts. She also co-wrote another cookbook called Carnivore-ish

Ashleigh is my co-host on (the new!) The Muscle Science for Women Podcast and long-time friend. We teamed up to create The Muscle Science for Women Program to help explain what to do to build muscle and strength, but also providing the research-backed, tested information on how to do it practically and efficiently.
