The Broad Scope of Nutrition and Fitness with Jonathan Griffiths

Do you struggle to make sense of the vast amounts of information out there surrounding nutrition and fitness? Jonathan Griffiths has been in the nutrition industry, studying carefully, for nearly 15 years, having undertaken several courses surrounding human health, including Medical Science, Nutrition and Herbal Sciences, and a Sports Science certification. Over that span of time, he has seen fad diets come and go. With the amount of misinformation online, he decided to uncover the truth. He uses the most up-to-date scientific literature, as well as experience from working with hundreds of individuals with unique health situations. We covered a lot of ground in this episode, so I know you'll take something away from it.
