I love this podcast, and you should try it out, too! I am so tired of fad advice when it comes to nutrition and diet, and "Diet Science" is the opposite. I can't wait for each new episode. All of the information in this podcast is science-based, and will open your eyes to what you are really putting into your body. And, unlike many other podcasts, each episode contains worthwhile information, rather than a 'promo' for information you need to buy. Because of the new information I have found here, I am slowly guiding my family's diet to be more healthy. Right now we are experimenting with quinoa, and I look forward to trying flax oil next!
Great information in Dee's podcasts!
Great information presented in such a way even a "beginner" like me can understand it! "Mighty Dee" is a life-saver to me! Her podcasts have become my "bible" to healthy eating. There is so much information out there it gets so confusing just trying to figure out what and who to believe! As soon as you listen to ONE of Dee's podcasts you will become a "believer"! I have lost 15 pounds in 4 weeks using Dee's advice and guidelines. She has the education, the knowledge and personal experience and she willingly shares it all.
Great, but where did they go?
I really enjoy this podcast, unfortunately they haven't updated in a long time. The only thing that bugs me a bit is the co-host. Is that her husband? I don't know, but he doesn't have a good voice for podcasts, and his part in the podcasts I've listened to sound very staged and fake. He needs to go. Keep the lady, Dee, doing her part. The information is wonderful! Please come back!
