  1. Great interview with iconoclastic information and research.

    I work out 3Xs per week and over the years all the trainers and fellow exercisers I have spoken to told me to drink, drink, drink, water, water, water. I could never understand it and believed somehow that my body would tell me when I needed water. Even when I was running 30 miles per week I never drank along the way and had no bad experiences.

    Thanks for the interview.
