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

Hey PowerAthlete, just curious how you all approach Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays. I’d like to say I’d be perfect with my macros, but I’m trying to be realistic. Love to hear your thoughts!

Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through the holidays.

We’re grateful for the chance to sit down for another episode of Power Athlete Radio and discuss a few ingredients to maintain gainz or continue to lean this holiday season. First off, if you’re looking to bulk, vegetables are a must. We suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie. (Bonus points if you come from a family that considers gravy a beverage.) Now if you’re looking to keep your leaning protocol on track, that is going to take a lot more effort than switching to sweat pants.

The Power Athlete Nutrition Coaches join John, Luke, and Tex to discuss waistline survival strategies heading into Thanksgiving week. Bottom line, WOD hard before the feast, don’t insult Nana over a slice of pecan heaven, and don’t go full-Hinzman sucking on ice-chip appetizers.
