Host Brad Kearns welcomes Dude Spellings for an episode that goes deep into the world of personal growth. Listen if you dare to Dude baring his soul and discussing the life-changing experience of his five-day intensive retreat known as “Training Camp For The Soul”. Once the heavy stuff is out of the way, Dude regales the listener with an account of how he did a rim to rim to rim crossing of the Grand Canyon (49 miles) without food! And how, when he finished with his crew and was welcomed at the South Rim with a stack of pizzas to celebrate, Dude instead decided to fast overnight in order to speed recovery. Yes, Dude is the first person to utter the transformational insight that fasting may just be the most efficient way to recovery from strenuous workouts! After all, we know that inflammation, immune function, and cell repair are all optimized when you are in a fasted state. Hard to imagine when athletes associate food with celebration after workouts, but these cutting edge insights will really get you thinking about the best ways to optimize nutrition, peak performance, and recovery.
