Love this podcast!

Years ago my husband and I started living the Power Foods Lifestyle. It has been a game changer for our daily lives. I have listened to many of Kristy’s podcasts, they are a great motivation. When I have found myself in a rut and not where I want to be with my nutrition, exercise or over all health I will come and listen; these podcasts always give me the boost I need to get back on track. One of my favorite things about these podcasts is the research that has been done and the facts that are shared, I really appreciate that. Thank you so much!
