This week welcome to the show Tim Noakes. Prof Noakes was born in Harare, Zimbabwe in 1949. As a youngster, he had a keen interest in sport and attended Diocesan College in Cape Town. Following this, he studied at the University of Cape Town (UCT) and obtained an MBChB degree in 1974, an MD in 1981 and a DSc (Med) in Exercise Science in 2002.
In the early 90s, Noakes teamed up with Morné du Plessis to drive the founding of the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA). The Institute was built to provide a facility that would primarily fund research in sports performance. The application of this research would provide sports personnel of all disciplines with the means to improve. Noakes and du Plessis also wanted to use it as a platform to build public interest in the country’s top sports people and build state pride.
Prof Noakes has published more than 750 scientific books and articles. He has been cited more than 16 000 times in scientific literature, has an H-index of 71 and has been rated an A1 scientist by the National Research Foundation of South Africa for a second 5-year term. He has won numerous awards over the years and made himself available on many editorial boards.
He has a passion for running and is still active, running half marathons when he can. He is a devoted husband, father and grandfather and now, in his retirement, is enjoying spending more time with his family.
Questions we ask in this episode:
[00:01:00] Hey, this is Guy Lawrence of 180 Nutrition. Welcome to another stellar episode of the Health Sessions, of course, where we are connected with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking, empowering us all to turn our health and lives around. This week we welcome back to the show the one and only, awesome, Mr. Professor Tim Noakes from South Africa. Now, if you're unfamiliar with Tim's work, he has published more than 750 scientific books and articles. He's been cited more than 16,000 times in scientific literature. He has a H-index of 71 and has been rated an A1 scientist by the National Research Foundation of South Africa for a second five year term. Amazing. He has won numerous awards over the years, and made himself available for many editorial boards, and of course, has a very famous book. The Law of Running is considered the bible of the running sport itself. It was just a privilege to get Tim back on the show today and pick his brains on what he's been up to over the last few years.
[00:01:30] Now, if you're unfamiliar with Tim more recently ... Well, I say more recently, a few year ago, which we get into today, he kind of flipped his way of thinking around fueling for sport where he had been for 33 years promoting the low-fat, the carb loading, endurance sport diet for athletes. Then had a complete turn around and came out with that, which is a huge deal. We get into that today, and over the five years since, I think, this has happened what he's been up to and his fights against type II diabetes as well in South Africa. We get into sports recovery, sports hydration from his famous book, Water Logged, as well.
[00:02:00] It's all in there and you are going to love it. If you do love the show guys, just share it with people that you think are going to benefit from this kind of information because we're getting more and more people listening to our podcast. We're getting more and more emails and from people that are just having these epiphanies around their health, and it's definitely helping everyone, including ourselves as well. Help spread the love, share the word, and get this information out there with people, because it does change people's lives.
Anyway guys, let's go over to Tim. Hit me up on Instagram stories if you enjoy the episode. Oh, I've also started my own little Instagram channel as well, which is Guy H. Lawrence, which you can follow me on there as well, outside of 180 Nutrition. Awesome guys. Let's go over to Tim Noakes. Enjoy.
Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stuart Cooke as always. Hello Stu.
Our fantastic guest today is Mr. Tim Noakes. Tim, welcome back to the podcast.
Thanks very much Guy, lovely to be back with you.
It's phenomenal, mate. I can't believe it's been over three years since you last come on, and I have no doubt a lot has happened since then that we can get into today.
Tim, there's a question that we ask everyone on the show at the moment and that is, if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?
At present I'm retired, so I do what I want to do. Essentially, I'm finishing up a five-year trial against me on the basis that I gave information on Twitter, which was considered unconventional. What we did was, we put the low-fat diet on trial. We said, "Okay, if you're going to try me for this nonsense, let's see whether there's any evidence that the low-fat diet is healthy." So we put it on trial, and the trial ended on April the 21st and I won 10-0.

[00:00:30] Hey, this is Guy Lawrence on 180 Nutrition and welcome to another episode of The Health Sessions where of course we are connecting with leading global health and wellness experts to share the best and the latest science and thinking and empowering to turn all of our health and lives around. And this week we are doing it with the awesome Lesley Maxwell. Now, if you're not familiar with Lesley, she redefines what it means to be 50 and fabulous. I'll tell you, she truly does, I mean it's amazing. She's a mother of three, she's Melbourne based and has more than 20 body sculpting titles to her name and represented Australia in New York where she won the prestigious Miss USA figure championship. Amazing.
[00:01:00] Author of Get the Body You Want and her new book, Training to Train, which we discussed today. And, she's an Oxygen ambassador, plus Oxygen cover girl and Lesley is also a regular, ah, can't get my words out, contributor to Oxygen magazine and has appeared on TV and ACA and newspapers and so forth. And it was fantastic to tap into the topics that she discusses today, especially when it comes to training. Weight training especially, for people over 50 years old, which is phenomenal. And I'm a huge fan of Lesley's message and what she shares with us today and I have no doubt if you're not doing any weight training, this is going to inspire you. And I certainly am a big believer in it as well. So, I hope you enjoy the episode!
[00:02:00] And I just wanted to mention as well, guys, that we are currently giving away free samples of the 180 Superfood Blend, protein Superfood Blend. So, if you haven't tried it yet and you're keen, then hopefully this little announcement is going to motivate you to go back to 180nutrition.com.au where there's a big banner there saying, "Grab your free sample!" So, if you want to try it and want to know what all the fuss is about and why thousands of other people who have walked your path in the past are using 180, making smoothies out of it and actually getting rid of some of those unfavorable foods and replacing it with the 180 smoothie, then you can go and try it out. All we ask in return is that you pay a small shipping and handling fee, and we will give you four serves for nothing. There you go, how's that for a deal? Anyway, go and check it out and hit me up on Instagram if you do so. Anyway, let's go over to Lesley. Enjoy the podcast and of course when it comes to iTunes guys, you know what to do. Awesome.
Hi, this is Guy Lawrence. I'm joined with Stu Cooke, as always. Hello Stu.
And our lovely guest today is Lesley Maxwell. Lesley, welcome to the show.
Hi Stu, hi Guy! Thank you so much for having me, it's great to be here.
[00:03:00] The privilege is all ours, right? It's a true honor. Now, just to kickstart the show Lesley, we ask a similar question to everyone at the start and that is, if a complete stranger stopped you on the street and asked you what you did for a living, what would you say?
[00:03:30] Well, I actually change people's lives. Truly, I give them their lives back again because often people become so, you know at a certain age they think they should go downhill instead of revamping and getting better and stronger and healthier. And I feel I honestly give people a new lease of life and I give women, you know, help them get their sexy back and feel great and that's what life is. We've got so much to offer, and so much life to live. It's a shame that you shouldn't do that, just because you get to 50 or whatever it is they feel it's shut off point. When we can really improve our bodies and health and go on and live this amazing life in the best health and strength we can. So, it feels great.
