The best exercise for health – Diet Doctor Podcast

Exercise can be an important component of overall health and healthy weight loss. But which type is better? Does traditional cardio really burn more fat? Or, is interval training the best for fat loss? And what does interval training even mean? Plus, if you’re fit, does that mean you are healthy?

In this episode, we cover these topics and more with leading HIIT researcher Martin Gibala, PhD, and leading aerobic exercise proponent Phil Maffetone, founder of the MAF Method.
