I had a fantastic conversation on Embody Radio with a friend and fellow long time coach Emily Duncan. We hit on a lot of great topics and the central theme of this episode is the grey area of calories and metabolism, looking at the nuances and factors most coaches don't talk about. If you found this conversation intriguing, The Functional Nutrition and Metabolism Science Specialization is something I highly recommend checking out and you can find that in the show notes below.
