Nutrition Myths with Dr. Chris Mohr

Written by Jason Ferruggia Topics: Podcast

Biggest Nutrition MythsWhen it comes to nutrition we all get suckered. We all get confused and misled. I’ve been there.

People try to make things more complicated than they should be. I’ve been guilty of that too.

Next thing ya know you’re putting a stick of butter in your coffee, cutting all carbs, and running in fear past every Mexican joint you see because you think even coming near a bean is going to cause extreme joint pain.

It’s all very confusing and stressful.

It shouldn’t and doesn’t have to be that way.

In the latest episode of The Jay Ferruggia Show podcast Dr. Chris Mohr, PhD, RD., and nutrition expert breaks down some of the biggest myths and most misunderstood concepts regarding diet.
