In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

What’s up Power Athlete? Mike here. I wanted to call you guys and ask you about an issue I’ve been having with my 99 Ford F350. It’s got the 7.3. It’s got a month reoccurring four-wheel drive issue with operated and I wanted to run a couple of solutions pass you, but that’s not what this phone calls about.

I was listening to the Meat Eater podcast, episode 239, and it’s got this doctor on it. He’s Paul Saladino. He wrote the carnivore diet book. He’s not one of these New York strip steaks kind of guys for every meal, but he does bring up some interesting things like bone broth. I thought you guys would be interested to dive into carnivore diet a little bit. And that’s it… byeeee.

It takes real guts to eat organ meatz

In recent years, consuming organ meats is fallen out of vogue. But the Crew at Power Athlete, known to take the road less traveled, has always been a big proponent of the cooking and consuming organ meats. Why you ask?

Because organ meats are a concentrated source of just about every nutrient you would need to build muscle and increase performance being high in vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and essential amino acids. 

“As a kid, I remember my mom cooking liver and onions in our weekly dinner rotation. While we complained, Mom knew best feeding us a highly concentrated source of Vitamin A with a big blast of Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 (and other B-Vitamins), copper, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, and iron, which is in a form that is easily absorbed and used by the body. Compared to the muscle meat we regularly consume, organ meats are more densely packed with just about every nutrient you need to be continue making gains.” – John Welbourn Power Athlete Founder & CEO
