Quality nutrition info

I love Her approach to nutrition. She goes with facts not gimmicks and makes things easy to understand, encourages small long term changes to diet. Great for dieters, exercisers and everyone.

Fantastic resource

I enjoy every episode and really appreciate EC Synkowski’s extremely well researched and level headed discussions of various nutrition topics. I just wish everyone could hear her viewpoints and stop being confused by all of the crazy shenanigans being sold in the diet and nutrition world. Eat your fruits and veggies and protein people!
