Ep. 244 Lyle McDonald - How To Keep The Weight Off

On this episode of #RNTFitnessRadio, we have the pleasure to be joined by one of the most brilliant minds of the fitness industry with well over two decades in the game, Lyle McDonald. Lyle is a physiologist and author who’s dedicated his life to finding ways to apply the literature to sports nutriti on, fat loss and muscle growth, whilst also accumulating many of his own findings along the way. His work has influenced many of my own methodologies, and I’ve always enjoyed reading his insights onto all things transformation, so it’s an honour to have him on this episode, where we dive deep into the real crux of long-term weight management, the skill of dieting, and so much more.
In every study you read, people lose weight, but nobody keeps it off.
