180DegreeHealth #17: Metabolism, Body Image, and Expertise with Scott Abel

I’ve been closely following the work and ideas of fitness and bodybuilding legend Scott Abel for four straight years. Getting a chance to have an in-depth conversation with him was beyond thrilling. There’s no doubt that Scott Abel is a true expert, having not only studied all matters of health, nutrition, fitness, exercise, metabolism, and body composition–but he has decades of high-level real world experience doing everything from training world champion fitness athletes to helping people recover from complex eating issues and disorders.

This is without a doubt one of the more interesting and enlightening health and fitness-related conversations you’ll ever have a chance to hear.

Beyond proud to present the legend himself: Scott Abel.
