Episode 46 - Behavioral Fitness w/ Nick Green

This week our special guest becomes our special guest co-host as Nick Green from BehaviorFit returns to the podcast to talk with us about behavioral fitness.  Can the Good Behavior Game increase our activity levels? And just how do variable-ratio schedules deal with obesity.  All that, plus an update on Nick's movement about movement.  Don't make the rest of us run: we're full of chocolate!
