Leadership is definitely something that has been a challenge for me before. Fitness is something that I’ve had a lot of passion about, but I used to struggle a lot with passing on that knowledge, and leading others toward their fitness goals. And I realize that I still have room for improvement. It’s important to realize though that we are good enough to be leaders. We have what it takes, we just have to apply ourselves.

Your self perception in “your biggest strength” is not the type of thing you hear from people too much although it is probably true for most people. Thanks for the insights!

I also have a room full of people this week for 6 days and 5 nights, most of whom want to learn, and are interested in what I have to share with them.

That said, I agree 100% that the biggest challenge is people who are “unwilling to learn” as you put it. Sometimes I get through, sometimes I don’t.

A great leader inspires people to follow, but some people, well, let’s just say they may not be ready be follow or even listen with an open mind – yet. I never give up on people, as hard as that can be.

Great interview with lots of fantastic points.

Very interesting interview about leadership. The rest of my comment is about the fructose debate. I have to thank you as I’ve personally interpreted the evidence on both sides and now realise the sugar scare is a massive exaggeration. I was beginning to question Lustig’s propaganda when I kept on seeing lean people who hardly exercise drinking soft drinks (it clearly filled their stomachs). I have myself lost weight at a time when I have been eating more ice cream (but overally quantity of good eaten i.e. energy/calories is slightly less and exercising marginally more).

I think there is virtually no causation of any food type/diet or macronutrient in causing obesity (sugar, fat, vegetable oil, saturated fat, meat, veg diets, grains, salt, gluten dairy, absence of fibre or protein, etc.) I know TOO many people with all of these varied food habits with completely different figures even though they eat the same types of food. I personally feel real healthy eating a bit of everything (both “good” and “bad” foods). Far better than limiting yourself. Unfortunately there is too much money to be gained from vilifying some type of food.

Back to this blog, you talk about helping other people develop and you HAVE helped develop me so thank you Mr Aragon. 🙂

It’s funny, one of my rules of thumb is that whenever my writing starts to sound like a research paper, I know it needs to be simplified. I also get my mom (who has little interest in the details of health research) to read them, and if they make sense to her, I know most people will get them.

Great reply, and another congrats on your publication with Brad.

P.S. Just noticed your footer — “Master of Trolling Sciences” Love it, Alan Aragon, MTS 🙂

I’m so glad you anjoyed it and found it helpful. Big props to Brad for the stellar collaborative skills & making the paper publish-able. My next blog post will be on the latter.

IMO you and Brad wrote the best review on the subject ever. All other reviews I’ve read on nutrient timing ignore so many shortcomings of the current recommendations that people hold as gospel. Keep up the good work!
