My guest today is a man on a mission; a mission very similar to the one I'm on. His name is Alex Van Houten and he runs DefinindDadBod.com and hosts his own podcast as well.
Alex's passion for helping men shed their dad bods runs much deeper than just getting rid of that extra layer of fat or getting lean and ripped. He's been in the fitness industry for more than 13 years now and has dedicated himself to finding the reasons why men's bodies start to change after they have children.
Alex shares a few insights that have some pretty significant meaning as it pertains to men and how our hormones control much of what happens to our bodies. We often hear that we need to just clean up our diets and train hard, but Alex says there are much deeper issues than that.
He shares his method of creating personalized nutrition plans and how and why they start with his hierarchy of hormones and how trying to boost our testosterone before addressing other hormones is futile.
He also talks about the importance of sleep and how it's critical for optimum health and fat loss and why it's imperative that we not only get enough sleep but that our bedtimes stay consistent.
If you're a dad struggling with energy, losing weight, or trying to get your health back on track, this is a show you won't want to miss.
