A binge worthy education

Ive listen to just a few episodes so far and can easily say that this is one of the best podcasts Ive heard in a long time.

Great flow, great production value and the guests are excellent and insightful.

Its managed to challenge some pretty deep seeded beliefs in me and its safe to say i now look forward to hopping in the car and pressing play

Being fit and healthy is now not normal

I have the reverse experience. I lost 20kg and never felt healthier, but people would question my weight lose as being sick and see me as being different. Obesity is now the new normal.

A rare podcast

This podcast stands out amongst the sea of nutrition and health podcasts due to two things - the host and the way he approaches the topics.
Dr Berardi has a lifetime of experience in the field and is able to pass that information to the listener in a way that is relatable and understandable. He has a soft spoken way of presenting the show which is a great change from the many shouting hosts out there.
The podcast is unique in the way it presents both sides of a topic and does not attempt to have one “win” over the other but seeks to find the common ground.
A great podcast for anybody with an interest in nutrition.
