337: 6 Changes We All Need To Make

I rarely make blanket recommendations. When I talk about nutrition, I'm quick to say that strategies depend on your goals. When I talk about nutritional improvements, I'm quick to consider someone's baseline. I'm not going to recommend the Golden Rules of Carbs & Fat Loss to someone who is currently eating fast food & candy every day. It would probably be too big a transition for them, right now.

331: Carbs And Fat Loss
