On episode 020 of the #AskLiveLeanTV show, we’re answering 10 health and fitness questions ranging from moving to the US from Canada, our favorite podcasts, and more.
Brad: We’re back for another episode of #AskLiveLeanTV.
This is episode number…
Brad: We’ve made it to 20.
Jess: This is 20?
Brad: This is 20.
I never even thought of that.
While I was saying it, I was thinking, what episode are we on?
Jess: 20 episodes of you asking your questions.
Brad: Yes, 2-0.
Jess: We’re just so appreciative and grateful that you offer all your questions, because without your questions, we wouldn’t even have anything to talk about.
Brad: That’s right, so if you guys do want to get your questions answered, use #AskLiveLean.
However, just because you ask them today, it does not necessarily mean they are going to get answered next week, because we have a backlog.
But we do need your questions for future episodes, so on Twitter tag us @LiveLeanTV and put your questions using #AskLiveLeanTV.
Twitter is the best way to get in contact with us.
With that said, I think this show is actually a Snapchat dominated Q&A.
Jess: Oh really?
Brad: Yeah, Snapchat has been blowing up for me.
Jess: Snapchat is ok, but we prefer to receive the questions on Twitter though.
Brad: Yeah, but Snapchat has been blowing up for me.
A lot of you guys are following my snaps and seem to love it.
Jess: Yes, I’ve been posting a lot of baby related stuff, not so much fitness.
Brad: What’s your snapchat?
Jess: I’m @SnapyJessy on Snapchat.
Brad: Go check out Jessica on Snapchat.
Let’s get to the questions.
Like we’ve said before, we don’t know the questions that are being asked.
They just get sent to us, so we just flow with them and answer them straight up.
I think what makes the show a little bit better is when we’re kind of caught off guard with some questions.
Jess: Yeah or questions about our pet peeves about each other.
Brad: All right, let’s jump into the show guys.

Hi Brad! One of your recommendations is to eat higher glycemic foods like bananas and sweet potatoes post workout. Does that mean the body is burning the carbs and not fat? Can we still be in fat burning mode?

Good job bro. If possible, could you answer life questions, like moving out of state, and stuff like that?
Brad: I don’t really understand the question.
Jess: Do you think he meant like, how do you move out of state?
Brad: Well, I moved out of the country.
Brad: I don’t really understand the question, but if the question was like, how do you move, basically you have to decide what you want to do in life, and figure out what’s most important to you.
If the goal of moving somewhere else to obtain a job, or to meet and actually live with the girl of your dreams, that should overpower any problem you have with moving.
When I moved from Canada to the US, I moved with one suitcase.
I left everything behind me.
Jess: We sold all of your furniture.
Brad: You have to understand that before I moved to the US, I owned a big house full of furniture, so I had a lot of stuff.
Jess: You had a gym in your basement, so you had to get rid of the equipment, including a squat rack.
Brad: I had my own personal training studio in my house, which you would have seen if you guys have been with me for a long time.
So I had to get rid of a lot of things.
However, in the end, it’s more important to be with the girl that I love and to chase my dreams, than to have all that stuff.
That’s just materialistic stuff.
As I’ve grown and become more wise in my ways, I’ve been quickly learning that materialistic stuff is just holding you back.
You didn’t really give a reason why you wanted to move, so I think that instead of just moving to move, you should have a really good reason “why”.
It’s the same thing that we’re always talking about with fitness.
Why do you need to go to the gym?
Why do you need to eat healthier?
Why do you want to move out of state?
If you have a really good “why” that’s driving you, then the “how’s” just fall into place.
So don’t worry about how it’s going to happen.
Just worry about why it needs to happen.
Brad: We were talking about that last night on our walk.
Jess: Yeah, it’s like everything just seems to work out when your vision gets really clear.
Brad: But if that didn’t answer your question, Dolo Moses jr., get back to me on that, because you may have to be a little more clear on the question.
Jess: Ask us another question.

I try to eat as much higher welfare meat as I can, such as free range and organic, as I believe if something is going to die for me to eat, it should be treated with respect and care. What is your outlook on animal welfare, and are there benefits of higher welfare versus lower welfare meat sources?

After a workout, what kind of carbs should be consumed? I hear the carbs from fruit will only restore liver glycogen, not muscle glycogen.

Jess: Thank you guys so much for all the questions.
Keep them coming and we will answer them on future episodes.
Brad: Thank you guys.
So what’s the QOTD?
Jess: Yeah, let’s see.
Brad: QOTD means question of the day, if you can’t put that together 😂.
Jess: Yeah, the question of the day for you guys is, I would like to know how many different diets have you tried?
List them all down in the comments below.
We would like to know what you guys have experimented with.
