Fixing Your Metabolism & The Truth About Carbs w/ Nate Miyaki

Written by Jason Ferruggia Topics: Podcast

Jasmine_RiceKenny (@CoachKJKnows) and I are back dropping lines and spitting rhymes in another power packed episode. With the nationally televised Hannah Storm stiff arm last week, we thought we would highlight our favorite outbursts of all time.

Last week I posted a picture on my Instagram feed that got a lot of questions. I thought I’d take a few minutes to explain why I’m finally fixing my broken metabolism and doubling down on carbs.

On the flip side of today’s episode, we welcome back our favorite Hawaiian, Nate Miyaki. (@NateMiyaki) We talk carbs and cut through the cloud of bullshit surrounding them.

Take a listen and be sure to drop me a line and tell me what you thought on Twitter @JasonFerruggia.

  • My new improv class at Second City LA
  • The rise and fall of the Ugandan Giant, Kamala
  • My favorite celebrity rant of all time
