BioJacked #8: More Q&A along with Haris Alukic (former MMA)

 Yet another all question-and-answer show, this time focusing on Training, aided by special guests Haris Alukic (former MMA figher, former powerlifter) and Anna Sweeney.

View the associated forum post for this episode HERE.

The first 15 minutes is kinda random, where we’re just having a conversation on topics like intermittent fasting, Brad Pilon’s Eat Stop Eat, and chicks we know who took up marathon running or Crossfit and got fat as a direct result.

This is part 1 of 2.
