Powerful protein podcast !!

Vanessa has one of the only podcasts that I have listened to that is genuinely and purely knowledge and scientifically based in the field of nutrition. Her knowledge of the subject is clear and listening to her guests and her unbiased opinions is something I look forward to weekly. I learn so much from the topics covered. It’s like she has a sixth sense on what I need to hear. I discovered her while trying to figure out the best nutritional needs for my metabolism back when Keto became mainstream in 2015. Her ketogenic diet programs are incredible and I am so thankful that she backs what she gives to the keto community with this wonderful optimal protein podcast . Thank you Vanessa.

Her content is both science based experience-based . Further, she's not afraid to go further in depth. Her analysis of both the science in real life expertise leaves me feeling empowered and knowledgeable. As a Biohackers, personal trainer and former biotech executive, I make sure to listen to her podcast each and every week. If you love her podcast, leave a review as I know, we all need the support of the people that trust us and respect us, don't take it for granted reviews very important for people and her ability to communicate information to you all depends on your continued support. Thank you, Vanessa for educating me on so many subjects from Redlight therapy and the optimal protein intake among many other things, it is greatly appreciated. Best Regards, Christopher
