This week we’ve got New York Times bestselling author, Nina Teicholz, talking about her book, The Big Fat Surprise. In The Big Fat Surprise, Nina argues that the dietary advice recommended by the majority of our doctors and nutritionists was all built on faulty science. She chronicles decades of studies to illustrate that what we think we know about saturated fat, cholesterol, and heart disease, it might be all wrong and Nina explains why butter, meat and cheese are part of a healthy diet.

As promised, for this week’s INSIDE EPIC we chat with a couple of team members taking on Whole30 this January! First up is Catalina, a marketing manager on the Annie’s team. She’s a Whole30 veteran having done three of them already, but this year’s was, well...different. As in her Whole30 actually was just a Whole4. How does a Whole30 fall apart? Catalina is brave enough to share with us! [44:15]

Props again to Catalina for having the guts to share that with us! I hope she inspires some of yall who have had a small slip up to hop back on the wagon. Speaking of hope, our next Whole30er is indeed, Hope! She leads our EPIC marketing communications and this is her first Whole30! One of the biggest challenges of Whole30 is eating out, and not only did Hope eat out during Week One of her first of Whole30, she went on a date! Listen to Hope explain how that went and stay tuned for more of her journey! [49:04]
