Robb Wolf joins Drew on this educational podcast about the importance of understanding your unique nutritional needs. Robb grew up in a family who didn’t stress the importance of a healthy lifestyle or nutrition. During his college years, Robb experimented with his diet and basically stressed out his body. He ended up with ulcerative colitis and, instead of removing half of his intestinal tract, he decided to change his nutritional life. Robb’s new book, Wired to Eat, looks at the science associated with a body’s glucose levels.
Drew and Robb discuss medical technologies, why one diet doesn’t fit all and parenting during the nutritional crisis in the U.S.
