From Veganism to Proper Footwear with Chris Bates

If you've got questions about various dietary protocols, hormonal health, the education system, and more, then this is the episode for you. Chris and I formally met at Keto Con this year, but it turns out he's been loosely following the Savage brand for a little while now. He has tried the gamut of nutritional protocols, experimenting in a smart, controlled way, and he has a wealth of information to share on everything from veganism to shoes. It was a pleasure speaking to him and I know there's something in this episode for everyone.
