Optimizing Epic Dump Frequency, Lowering Resting Heart Rate With Diet, and More! | Q&A 010


Listen on Google Play MusicLet’s face it. We love answering questions. We don’t claim to know everything, but we’re obsessed with trying to parse out some truths in science, nutrition, exercise, and beyond. This is why we started this podcast. And Q&A’s have always been an integral goal to helping us help the world. So behold! Q&A #10. We have started getting more questions than we can answer at one time, so we apologize if yours didn’t make the cut. We really appreciate everyone that provided questions, and we hope we answered them without being too obnoxious. There’s a lot of great stuff in here, including:

  • best foods and practices for preventing and managing osteoporosis and arthritis
  • how many epic dumps per day is optimal, and what foods lead to the most epic of the dumps?
  • how to talk to young kids about plant-based lifestyles
  • how did we get into exercise?
  • lots more!

Any relevant information or links will be linked below. We hope this episode helps you in some way, and makes you think of other questions to ask! If you want to ask a question, leave a comment on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), in our Facebook group, or by sending us an email to tfflifestyle@gmail.com. Bathe yourself in knowledge, nerds.

Thank you for listening, now go eat some plants.
