I love having smart friends because they always share with my their smart books and smart podcasts. While I'm not actually friends with Julie Foucher, I listen to her podcast regularly and I really like her functional and integrated approach to medicine, health, fitness and wellness. She's pretty smart!
The podcast I share with you today is particularly interesting as we get ready to start our Fall Nutrition challenges. You've all heard me say, time and time again, that improving your diet and nutrition practices will have the most significant impact on your health and body composition. We all know we can't out exercise our diets. But, there are still MANY myths out there regarding nutrition and I think you'll learn a lot from this podcast with Gary Taubes.
I have read Gary Taube's books Why We Get Fat and Good Calories, Bad Calories and I've read most of his essays. If you have not yet read anything from Gary Taubes, start with this New York Times article, What If It's All Been a Big Fat Lie?
In this podcast Gary and Julie debunk many nutrition myths and discuss the importance of making dietary changes for a healthier lifestyle. I hope you enjoy!
We are offering TWO options this year, the Whole Life Challenge and a Macrostax challenge.
