Podcast Episode of the Year: Doug Kalman: How to Eat for Strength Without Budging the Scale

"Weight gain" and "weight loss" tend to dominate fitness and nutrition conversations. But what if you want—or your sport demands—that the number on the scale doesn't change all that much? Doug Kalman, Ph.D., RD, a researcher and dietician who has also competed in boxing, talks with Nick and gives him a no-BS lesson about how to eat for maximum strength gains and body re-composition. Listen up if you participate in a weight-classed sport, or just want to change your body without having to buy a whole new wardrobe!

How to Eat for Strength Without Budging the Scale
Doug Kalman is a well-known nutritionist and the co-founder of the International Society of Sports Nutrition. He's also one of the two stars of Bodybuilding.com's excellent Foundations of Fitness Nutrition series and, in his free time, he does a lot of consultant work for elite athletes and I wanted to pick Doug's brain about how to achieve maximum body recomposition, really focusing on strength and recovery while keeping weight about the same. I wanted him to give me the same kind of initial consult that he'd do for someone more talented than me, so that we can all take in some lessons from it.
