Matt Nathanson fan turned Max Lugavere fan!
Let’s be honest, to know Matt Nathanson is to love Matt Nathanson. Through him and his inspiring posts on the internet, I found you and your genius work. I woke up one day and said, “I want to be better”. It started with the food I was shoveling into my mouth. I’ve been eating well for a while now but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago, when your book was released, that I was introduced to you. I do own your book and have yet to read it but I must say, after this podcast, I’m cracking it open as soon as the sun rises. I feel like I can learn so much from all of your hard work and dedication to a living healthy lifestyle. You and Matt Nathanson together are like an earthquake inside my head driving me to be the best I can be, so thank you. This specific episode of your Podcast shed a lot of light onto myself and I truly look forward to the rest of the episodes, past and present.
Super informative I’m a huge fan
Such a fan of Max since I read his book. I love that he really does his research and digs into nutrition from a non biased perspective
Max, is easy to listen too, genuinely interested in his guests, and sincere in reaching out to his listeners with genuine heartfelt content in his podcast.
He is committed to helping others achieve healthy minds and beating these debilitating diseases.
