First off, this not intended to be an exhaustive review of cholesterol science. Peter Attia did a great job of that in his 10 part series here. The purpose of this article is just to shed a bit of light on a confusing topic to help get readers up to speed on the current understanding of cholesterol measurements and ultimately, relevance to your health and longevity. Very few nutrition or medical experts are making recommendations based on the most current data, some are quite a bit farther behind than others. The reasons for this discordance are numerous and will be touched upon later.

“Author, coach, and self-professed pretty-boy John Romaniello has been running amok in the fitness industry for nearly a decade.  Having trained everyone from youth soccer player to MLB pitchers, runway models to not-so-model citizens, John has earned a reputation for mixing excellent fitness information and cutting edge strategies with a personal approach to programming. Romaniello now runs Roman Fitness Systems with a tongue-in-cheek approach to fitness–and himself–that shows a genuine love/hate relationship with both. Equal parts narcissism and self-loathing, Roman writes with passion and humor, show-casing his belief that training doesn’t need to be the serious, stern, science-laden monotony that is pervasive in this industry.”

The metabolic effect of adding muscle is misunderstood and greatly overstated. Most fitness professionals will tell you that each pound of muscle burns an extra 40-50 calories per day, which is just not true. The real number is about 6 calories. So you put on 10 pounds of muscle, and you’re buring an extra 60 calories a day…who cares? Thats a couple bites of a meal.

First off, my apologies as I’m breaking blog-etiquitte (again) by posting a long article. But I wanted to run this anyway, as it’s one of my favorite interviews. Also, this interview was done two years ago, so some minor things have changed. Anyway, Nicole is a great girl with a ton of interesting things to say, so pop some adderall and dig in.

Nicole has a B.S. in Exercise Science, a Masters in Cell and Molecular Nutrition, and a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Nutrition. You can find her name tacked on to quite a bit of published research as well as some various well respected texts.

Academics aside, she’s right in the heart of the physique game and has some compelling things to say. We’re hitting all of the hot topics of scientific physique enhancement and Nicole has brought some exciting information to the table. This is one interview you want to pay attention to.
