Armi, Lawrence and Emma are answering the questions that everyone wants the answer to in this Episode - How do we make something a habit, and how long does that process take? 

Armi discusses how it's harder to start doing something than stop doing it, Emma reveals some strategies for dealing with going on holiday, and why the week you're away isn't necessarily why your routine changes after a holiday, and Lawrence has some penguins on his pants.

Milkshakes in supermarket fridges can sometimes be packed with a little extra protein, but they also have little extra sugar. Are they still alright to drink?

And if you are going to have a sugary milkshake or a bag of sweets, do you have to have them post workout? Not really. We explain why in this episode.

Since you were little, you've heard that eating too much salt can be bad for you. You've heard that you should avoid "salty" foods or that foods high in salt are "bad."

But you're still not sure what counts as a "high salt" diet. You also work out, and you know that you lose some salt through sweat. So is it okay to eat more?

Will adding a little salt to your diet increase your risk of heart disease? No, not really, and we explain why in this podcast. You'll learn why people think eating lots of salt is bad for you, and what the evidence really says.

You can't build muscle forever. Eventually, you start gaining a lot more fat, and the gains just aren't worth it. But does that mean you should always cut body fat before trying to build muscle? That's what one of our listeners asked:

"I have often heard that no matter what your long term goal is, you would benefit from "getting lean first". From what I have picked up this has to do with better insulin sensitivity, lower inflammation, better hormone balance = better nutrition partitioning.
 
Is this something you would support? If so, could you point me to somewhere I can read more about this?"
There is some merit to the idea of getting lean before you bulk, but it's not the best idea in all circumstances. You'll learn why in this podcast.

You're leaner than you've been in a long time.

Now that you can see your abs, you're ready to think about gaining muscle.

You know you have to eat more calories than you burn to grow. But you've heard horror stories of people "eating to get big" and packing on thirty pounds of fat in the process.

You've heard that if you use the right nutrient timing strategies and eat the right combination of macronutrients, you can "lean bulk." You like the idea of adding muscle while losing fat or keeping the same body fat percentage.

The problem is that it doesn't really work. At all. You'll learn why people think this is a good idea, and why it really isn't, in this podcast.

The science is clear - people who weigh themselves regularly lose more weight and keep it off better.

But, it's easy for this healthy, normal habit to become something you dread. It becomes a constant reminder that you're not doing well at something that's important to you. It puts your focus on losing weight when you may want to think about more important things.

So, how do you use the scale to lose weight in a healthy way without driving yourself nuts? That's what you'll learn in this episode of SBS Radio.

To lose weight, you have to eat fewer calories than you burn. 

 

When people start counting calories to get leaner, however, they often don’t lose fat. 

 

So what’s the problem? 

 

If calories really mattered, why doesn’t everyone lose weight when they track calories?

 

Usually, it’s a problem of “calorie awareness.” People don’t understand how many calories are in different foods, so when they track it’s not accurate. Not even close.

 

At first, everyone sucks at tracking how much they eat and how many calories they burn. But over time, with practice, you can get much better. Eventually, you’ll be able to accurately track your calorie intake, or even lose weight without tracking calories. 

 

In this episode, you’ll learn how people usually screw up calorie counting and how you can do better.

The best diet and training program in the world is worthless if you don’t do it.

 

Most of the time, you’re told to just “buckle down and do it,” or some other form of “grinding” through the problem. 

 

The truth is that motivation is more complex than flipping open your phone and looking at fitness models on Instagram.

 

In this episode, Armi, Emma and Lawrence break down the psychological science behind what causes people to take action. You’ll learn how to find the right kind of motivation for your goals and background. 

 

You’ll also learn:

 

How to find the right balance between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.

 

How taking fitness too seriously can hurt your progress and make you less happy.

 

Why “fitspiration,” like you’ll find on Instagram, can be helpful or harmful in the right context. 

 

How to decide if working with a personal trainer would help you reach your fitness goals.

 

How to get back on track if your motivation wanes.
