Ep. 173 - #AuthenticAF P2 | Macros, Meals & Muscle

Welcome back to the next part of our #AuthenticAF series, where we’re going to be talking myths around macros, meal timings and how to grow muscle mass for both men and women. We talk all things proteins, fats, carbs while diving into some of the research, myths taken from the bodybuilding world, and the best practices required to transform your physique. If you’ve got myths you’re confused about and want us to debunk them, just send us an email at podcast@rntfitness.com.
