The Adversity Advantage with Doug Bopst

Sep 22, 2022

Today's guests are Layne Norton and Simon Hill. Simon and Layne were on the show earlier this year and it has been one of the most popular episodes. So I thought I would get them back on to keep the discussion going. I will link our first episode in the notes below and I highly encourage y'all to give it a listen. Layne Norton (aka Biolayne) is an entrepreneur, physique coach, bodybuilder, and powerlifter. Alongside his success as a competitor, Layne has his Ph.D. in nutrition science and is one of the most respected voices in the health and nutrition space. Simon Hill is a nutritionist and physiotherapist with a bachelor's degree in science and a master's degree in nutrition science on a mission to help people make informed lifestyle choices. His podcast, The Proof with Simon Hill, extends beyond nutrition to other crucial lifestyle factors that impact our well-being.


As promised this is the second part of our most recent convo and today we discuss insulin, insulin resistance, exercise, longevity, and gut health and more!
