How Not To Die

March is national nutrition month. And it got me thinking, nutrition is one of the most confusing aspects of wellness. There’s so much contradictory information out there about what to eat, from a plant based diet to paleo and keto diets, most people are overwhelmed. So I thought it would be interesting to bring on a few of the top experts in nutrition who have opposing views to have a real conversation about what the best way of eating is. In this episode you’ll meet Dr. Michael Greger, one of the world’s most leading nutrition authorities and the NYT best selling author of several books including How Not to Die. Dr. Greger is going to talk about the benefits of plant based eating today and I think you’re going to enjoy this conversation. Then be sure to tune in the weeks ahead to hear from other nutrition authorities and see what you think. Listen in now…
