For example: Paleo VS Vegan Dairy VS Non-Dairy Pre VS Post-Workout Nutrition Keto VS Carbs The list goes on. I’ve even seenContinue reading “What Dietary Advice Is True?”
My dietary guideline is, simply, to eat what makes me feel food. I advise you to do the same. However, this not always simple to implement.
