They say it’s the little things that make all the difference, and this is especially the case when it comes to nutrition. Although, I’d take it one step further and say it’s the little things done consistently that make all the difference. Since this is usually the piece that’s holding people back from reaching their…

New Whole Grain Studies As Misleading As Red Meat Research?

“Six of one, half dozen of the other” is the perfect way to describe the difference between whole grains and refined grains. As you’re essentially deciding between a wire-brush with nutrients you can’t access, and a fiber-less insulin intravenous. Although, “Same shit, different day” also seems appropriate, based on what the damaging proteins in these…

Research Recap – May 2016
