Guts, Hormones, Gluten..& Coffee with Robert Yang

Who’s ready to amp-up their energy, focus, and nutrition with this episode? When it comes to nutrition, there is so much conflicting information out there. Bottom line is that everything you eat causes a chemical reaction that positively or negatively affects your physical and mental state. Therefore, I went to a world-renowned nutrition expert Robert Yang and asked him some important questions on gut health and allergies, brain fog, optimizing hormones for men & women, how to curb sugar cravings, gluten, caffeine, and a whole bunch more. 

I also share my “weird” relationship with coffee in this episode and Robert weighs-in with his expert opinion. Robert also shares his “4R” program, talks optimizing sleep, and the one thing everyone must do to improve their nutrition. Enjoy the episode this week as I’m confident it will improve your health, vitality, focus, and ENERGY!
