The Science of Nutrition with Bart Kay

Are you confused about which nutritional protocol is best for you? In this episode, I welcome Bart Kay, a retired scientist turned YouTube personality, educating people by subterfuge. He has a wealth of information on the physiology of nutrition, which he delivers in a funny, sarcastic way to his audience. I learned a ton from him, and I'm sure you will as well.
