Woo hoo

Wonderful science and research based podcast! Love it, thank y’all so much for creating this. Coincidentally I’m ready Carl Sagan, “Science As A Candle In the Dark.”

goodbye fad diets ,

Helpful insights

I am easily drawn into advertisements to lose weight only to yo-yo diet. The research-based information in these podcasts has opened my eyes to the difference between a fad diet and healthy nutrition. Thank you ladies!

Finally reliable information!

I came across this podcast after being so frustrated with all the contradicting nutrition info out there. I want to get healthy but don’t know where to turn for information. It can be so confusing. When I listen to this podcast, I know I’m getting good information that I can trust.
