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.

Can’t take her seriously due to her other podcast

Vanessa seems like a very well spoken and researched woman. But I can no longer take her seriously because of the work she produces with her co host of the intermittent fasting podcast. Her co host is mentally ill and has a severe eating disorder. She is anorexic and orthorexic. She eats only meat and cucumbers and she boasts about all of her disordered eating behaivors. It’s basically her teaching an audience on how to be a high functioning anorexic. She is obsessed with fat loss and remaining as underweight as possible. She is spreading Ed behaviors and she’s normalizing a serious illness as anorexia. She talks about how little her diet consists of and she markets it as Health. The fact that Vanessa continues to support her co host even within the realms of a serious eating disorder is very very concerning and off putting. Her co host continues to talk about weight loss, fat loss, restricting her diet, fasting, etc. the message they are putting out is extremely toxic, how can vanessa continue to do such a harmful podcast?? Her co host is SICK. And they should both take responsibility and be honest and truthful. Living in rabbit starvation is not normal, and watching cake food porn videos while eating fruit is textbook anorexic behavior. Wake up. Stop supporting such horrible messaging. Normalizing anorexia and orthorexia and pretending it’s not restriction is so toxic and it’s harming thousands of people.

VANESSA SPINA: Well done!

Vanessa Spirina it's one of the most honest, sincere podcast host I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. Her podcast is a podcast you can trust. 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
