When most people think about nutrition and fitness, they think about burning calories, weight loss, or fueling their body. But what we eat determines so much more than how we look, feel, or what we do at the gym. Our approach to nutrition says a lot about our values, our training and health goals, and the type of life we envision for ourselves. On today’s episode, we sit down with Dr. Joel Kahn, a cardiologist, best-selling author and a proponent of vegan and plant-based diets, who has learned that while nutrition looks different for everyone, finding the right one for you can improve your longevity, performance, sleep, and your own sense of self. Dr. Kahn will debunk some of the science behind the latest fad diets, explain how nutrition can stave off heart disease, and dive deep into the specific plant-based foods that everyone should put on their plate every day.
