Evidence based nutrition
This is doing for nutrition what Ben Goldacre is doing for health science in general. The phrase "it's a bit more complicated than that" can be applied to so many of the supposed absolute truths that are touted in nutrition. This podcasts cuts through the bad science and looks at what the real research is saying.
Absolutely brilliant podcast from two very knowledgable nutritionists giving up to date relevant information and advice... Get listening!!!!
First review didn't work for some reason. Let's hope there's better luck this time.
These guys are highly knowledgeable, and have a moderate, cut-through-the-BS, non-preachy, non-band-wagon, science-based approach. Four episodes in, and this is fast becomming one of my favorite nutrition shows.
I really hope this becomes a regular release.
