    My black ass family loves watermelon and all of my great aunts and grandparents lived to be deep into their 90s and past 100 and they ate watermelon like crazy……and smoked like crazy 😂. Definitely not saying anyone should smoke like crazy but watermelon is definitely not bad for you.

    I always would sweat so easy, and I hated it so much and as I got older, I jokingly would say I had a high-performance cooling system. now finding out that it’s actually true. It’s so cool.😎 I used to remember at soccer practice being completely soaked, and then my teammates, having beads of sweat on therefore head and I’m sitting here wondering “what the hell”😂

    Eat whole plant foods, they're mostly water.

    I swear you are the finest looking white man on YouTube. Lol.

    Hydration is the most important

    My first time commenting as a YouTube consumer. It’s kinda scary (in a good way, fear makes me proactive 😂) that whenever I feel like watching TV at night, or mindless let scrolling), Dr. H starts talking in my brain and that makes me stop and think. Life is changing.

  9. Random comment, or maybe not so random since we are discussing fitness, but you should have Shona Vertue on the podcast ^-^

    Advice on GABA pathways would be helpful

    What a wonderful, informative series.

  12. Amazing and so so useful. Thank you both so much! I love this podcast and I reference it all the time. I have learned untold many things. I am sitting facing the sun shortly after waking up, sipping my second glass of water, learning awesome science with the two Andrews. Perfect start to my Saturday morning! Thank you both again. 🙏😊🙏

  13. All this sounds really stupid to me, why should you have to supplement
    anything? Eat a good healthy carnivore diet and you're good to go

    More on this series please!

  15. I’ve had incredible benefits from drinking Sage tea daily to help my hyperhydrosis.

  16. How Is Cyanide Found In Vitamin B12?

    The form of vitamin b12 used in nearly all mass-market vitamins is called cyanocobalamin. This is a cyanide-based form of b12 and it is the most common form found on the market! Unknown to most consumers, cyanocobalamin is found in a wide range of vitamins and foods as a synthetic additive.

    Working on high-rise rebar deck construction in summer drinking as much as possible I've seen 18lbs loss during a 10 hour shift.

  18. Yousef Gorji says:

    @drandygalpin you spoke about getting away from any anti-inflamatory supplements after a work-out. How about Ginseng? and how long after a work-out can I take this, will I be able to take this the morning after? I see it helps me with energy and focus so would typically take this early on in the day(usually before a work-out)

  19. Great series ! Just to clarify regarding the Creatine article provided as i read it. It is ok to take creatine on work out days or every day with good effect. It seems that Dr. Galpin recommended taking it every day or dont. Thanks

    (4) creatine supplementation only on resistance training days significantly increased measures of lean tissue mass and strength compared to the placebo.

  20. Thank you, both for hours of important, easy to understand information that we can all use. Now, I just have to apply what I have learned, in my case, just a little bit at a time. Thanks for helping me come back alive.

  21. IKE says:

    This stuff is gold.

  22. Michelle Kim says:

    omg you're amazing

  23. Iggy Schmitt says:

    Can someone tell me what his 3 top supplements were? Those in his 80/20 category that is. I think he said two include creatine and beta-alanine.

  24. hyponatremia – hypo meaning low, natrium meaning sodium, emia meaning presence in blood. low presence of sodium in blood.

  25. H H says:

    I would like to know when you should take berberine? Should I take it at night after my last meal after dinner so that I don’t crave sweets all night in the middle of the night? Or am I supposed to take it when I get up before I go for a run? Will it make me tired and doesn’t have any side effects?

  26. jimmytehgeek says:

    I made a note of the recommendation to consume between 1.6 and 2.7 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. Most protein sources run about 30 calories per gram of protein. (Bison is very lean and low calorie at about 20 calories/g protein.) I'm not exactly lean, but even the lower value puts me at nearly 4000 calories a day! At the upper end that would be 6640 calories. Is ANYONE meeting that?

  27. If I don't take supplements will I die?

  28. Linda Lentz says:

    High 5! Thank you for sharing all your knowledge!

    Tren Numba Wan. ☝🏻

  30. Thank you Andy and Andrew! These episodes are invaluable and still zero cost. These episodes gave me whole new perspective about training, recovery and adaptation. I got answers to many things I've been wondering about or struggling with. Now it all makes sense. Just thank you!

  32. O.T.B. says:

    So what is in the sleep stack? Or what total daily supplements and why in one easy place

  33. Doozie Gray says:

  34. superman456 says:

    Wow this is the first time I've sat through a 3 hour Youtube video, it's my first time stumbling upon this channel, but wow that is so much useful and interesting information. I have plenty of content to learn for the next while.

  35. will king says:

    Damn. I used to lose 7-9 lbs per workout in water weight. I’d run on a treadmill in my room for 1 hour going about 12km and be completely exhausted by the end and dripping and do this every single day. Used to load up on water beforehand though so didn’t get thirsty during the exercise or even after tbh.

  36. lykiful says:

    Ive started watching your channel recently (a few months) and still going through your videos and still havent seen these subjects discussed and qould love to find the video if it has been done or inspired a talk subject: arthritis and joint problems (carpal tunnel) before 40 and endometriosis maybe in a second video with Dr Gottfried 😉

  37. coboarasus says:

    It would be nice for a brief units conversation. No hate, but the imperial system is really bad at converting 😂. I listening wile outside and it’s really hard to stop and do the conversion . 😢

  38. One time I took L-tyrosine 2000mg before bed, then took 1,000 when I woke up! I had the most wonderful day WOW! You ought to give it a try Mr. Huberman. As a side note it only works once.

  39. Tomás Duca says:

    The value of this serie is beyond everything. I'm super grateful to both of you for all this work you did and continue to do educating and sharing with us all this information. Thank you!

  40. very very interesting podcast but daaaaam it is hard to do all the calculations from pounds to kg, ounces to liters fahreinheit to celsius 😂 I feel like in a math test!

  41. Number Two says:

    That UFC fighter is sweating that much because he's blasting too much testosterone and hgh. His blood is too thick.
