Nutrition isn’t Religion!
Have you ever noticed that as soon as a new documentary comes out on Netflix, everyone falls in love with a new nutrition concept (that they didn’t even know existed before) and starts promoting the crap out of it as if their life depended on it. Some people start drinking Herbalife from breakfast to dinner,… Continue reading Nutrition isn’t Religion!
“Everything Happens For a Reason” – Does it now?! Really?
I wanted to step out of nutrition for a sec (or an article), to address a topic that I particularly enjoy: Mindset.
