Eating for Muscle and Strength ft. Eric Helms

Episode 201Brute Strength


When there’s a ghost, you’re going to call the Ghostbusters—makes sense.

But when you need to build muscle in a 100% drug-free way, but still turn your body into a bodybuilding and powerlifting machine, you’re going to want Eric Helms on speed dial.

The author of The Muscle and Strength Pyramid books and co-founder of the 3D Muscle Journey is back on the Brute Podcast this week to share his knowledge in nutrition, exercise science and all things muscles. He expounds on nutrition to discuss philosophies such as the 80/20 rule, the effects of caffeine, his thoughts on the plant-based diet and supplements for weight loss. He also dives deeper into mental health and stresses the importance of how you can prevent a burnout.
