1. Guiding light - Sean you finally made me see health and food are not about fat and skinny, but health!
I had a huge health scare (bad Appendectomy), I almost lost my life at . A mom , wife , daughter, believer in kindness and lover of hip-hop. I had started a journey for me and loving myself before my health scare! Thank goodness.
The knowledge you share is spot on As a hairstylist I try and share little tidbits of your knowledge.
2. Changing Lives - I am so grateful to Shawn and his excellent production, research, and expert guests he has on his show. When I found out that my father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s, I wanted to learn more about the brain and how nutrition could play a role in this neurodegenerative disease. To be honest, I was a little intimated to tackle this complex subject, but my fear quickly disappeared, and the knowledge and understanding of how the brain works and how to support it were very easy to learn, thanks to Shawn’s approach to teaching and of his plethora of expert guests. Between his amazing book (Eat Smarter) and the library of episodes, I was able to gain the knowledge needed to help my dad and my mom as they manage this disease. I, myself have changed my lifestyle to also help support a healthier brain. This podcast didn't only have a positive and life-changing effect on one person, but multiple generations.
3. Inspired to take sovereignty to health - This show is awesome, I’m pretty grateful to have found you and your show! Getting back into taking power of my health, you’ve actually inspired me to potentially go back to school! Such awesome information with all the research to come with it all. I love all your side references to thinks things in culture for example bringing up a hip hop song lyrics. I enjoy all your episodes and all of the guests you bring on here. One guest I’d love to see on your show is Chervin Jafarieh the founder of the movement/supplement company Cymbiotika. Keep doing what you do and I will continue to share your great show with those who want to take control of their health. Thank you so much for all your work!
4. Awesome - Simply put this podcast is FIRE! I first heard about Shawn on the Secret to Success podcast with Eric Thomas and I was blown away by the wealth of knowledge he was dropping on sleep. A little bit later I found the Model Health Show and I thought “I’ll just listen to one podcast.” Fast forward a couple of months and this is one of my favorite podcasts PERIOD. Shawn doesn’t just give his opinion on health, he gives you facts backed by science. He simplifies everything so the listeners can fully understand some of the more complex science. Once again, this podcast is AWESOME.
5. Life Changing Podcast - I cannot say enough good things about the Model Health Show. Shawn delivers such a wide variety of information in such an easily digestible way that it keeps you coming back again and again. Not only do I look forward to the release of new episodes, I find myself coming back to re-listen to some of my favorites over time. I recommend this podcast to everyone! Not only has it changed my life for the better, but also those around me. It’s amazing that this is a FREE resource - thank you, Shawn, for all you do! You are truly making the world a better place.
6. Shawn is amazing! - I first heard Shawn on a Mark Groves podcast and started following him. I love the topics, his guests and his personal energy & perspective! I feel like he’s ahead of our time and brings such a fresh perspective to the table with regard to health and nutrition. I love it all, keep it up!
7. Changed my life - This podcast has been the cornerstone of my health/weigh loss journey. Thank you Shawn for the knowledge and information you have shared to help encourage me. I am learning a wealth of knowledge to become a healthier version of me for my family as well as myself. I was exposed to this podcast through Jay shetty (he is amazing). I started listening and was just drawn in. I was at a point in life where I went through IVF and conceived child & . I had gained lbs of weight through the IVF process as well as pregnancies pretty close together. I had complications with hypertension and high blood pressure, had been laid off from my job because of Covid for a year, I have a year old who had just been diagnosed with autism plus a one year old. That was when I started listening. I just listened. One day I realized I was so out of shape I wasn’t playing with my kids the way they needed me to because I was out of shape and exhausted. Then I started thinking about how I was not as active in my marriage with my husband who was years younger because I felt unhappy with myself and he must wonder what happened to the woman he married? The more I filled my head with knowledge I decided I needed to change. My family needs to change. I need to be healthy because my family needs me to be there and teach them how to be healthy as well. I was questioning what I could do to help my non verbal autistic year old. Well, I have changed our diet and am adding supplements while I continue to gather more knowledge to ensure we are all transitioning to become a healthier family. Trying to take things in steps for everyone to learn to love being healthier. Well, it has been moths since I have changed things for my year old and myself while I transitioning the family. Here are my results as of now.
My year old who had been having awful anger issues. I started adding MCT oils, teas, RAW honey, chlorella and spirilla and eliminating as much sugar and ultra processed foods as possible. He is not having headaches, is able to focus better, doesn’t feel as agitated, and has been more involved with the family. My autistic nonverbal year old is speaking, communicating and putting together phrases. He is recognizing emotion and expression (it is a work in progress, but I am over the moon). He is much happier being able to show us what he wants or needs. Me, well I have lost lbs (in months) so far. I am making myself sleep ( hours wasn’t enough). My hypertension went away in a couple of days. My heartburn (which I have had for years) gone, my snoring (I had apnea) gone (my husband said I breath a little heavy). I am having a more active life with the kids as well as having a deeper sexual relationship with my husband (I had felt so unattractive and exhausted). Our lives are better because of the knowledge I have learned from this podcast. Thank you Thank you Thank you
8. A true leader - I look forward to each inspiring episode that encourages and educates me while living a healthy lifestyle. Shawn’s podcast rejuvenates me mentally and physically causing me to think outside of the box. He encourages us to do our own research and I’ve realized just as we evolve our health is also evolving requiring us to make changes as necessary. Please keep bringing us the science behind the issues. Grateful.

1. Host interrupts constantly- for the love of god please let your guests speak - I’ve listened to many of these episodes and as much as it’s inspiring, Gin interrupts her guests constantly. Gin loves to talk about her kids and her husband, and she is very repetitive. She repeats the SAME STORIES TO EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HER GUESTS. A lot of the stuff she shares isn’t helpful and it takes the light away from her guests stories. Please let your guests share their stories, we don’t care how your husband or your kids eat
2. Thanks Gin! - Please don’t change a thing about this podcast! I love everything about it. It is so encouraging to listen to you and others share their stories and journey with IF. IF has been life changing and this podcast has given me the inspiration to keep going with IF even when others think your crazy. Thank you!
3. Listen and ask questions - The show can be generally encouraging to start / continue with IF. As others have mentioned though, we don’t get to hear as much about the guests stories because the host frequently interrupts and turns the spotlight on her experiences. It derails the conversation and the guests often lose their train of thought. From my understanding, this podcast is supposed to be about others sharing their stories — not the host sharing hers. Her story can be read throughout her books, website and other podcasts where she is the guest. The role of the host is to listen and ask thoughtful questions. Hopefully the host takes this feedback and makes some tweaks because it’s getting exhausting to listen to the show how it currently is.
4. Motivating yet redundant at times - I really appreciated this podcast at the beginning of my IF journey. However, it gets pretty redundant after a while with the host repeatedly interjecting with her personal stories. Would love to here more from the guests and less about the host since I’ve already read the books and listened to so many of these episodes.
5. Delay Don’t Deny…but yeah, you gotta deny - I’ve tried this show so many times but I get so tired of it being yeah you really need to give up carbs or dairy or wine in the end to really get an effect. Each episode is Gin Stephens bemoaning that she can’t have wine every night. Doesn’t sound so simple anymore so maybe it’s not really working. I love fasting and will continue to do it, but I won’t pretend anymore that EVERYONE, regardless, has to track what they eat land not over consume. Let’s call it what it is…fasting with moderation.
6. Life-changing!! - I’m ’” and weighed December . Something had to give. I started I.F. Jan. and began seeking resources for support. Gin’s podcast became an essential download for me to maintain motivation and remember I’m not alone in the mid-life weight struggle. After reading her books and listening regularly, I lost lbs EFFORTLESSLY!! I’m telling you, I will never “diet” again! I’m writing this review // and can easily maintain my weight /- - lbs (which is normal!). This is a lifestyle that gives you freedom and too many health benefits to count! Thank you Gin for sharing your story and research with us. You are changing so many lives!
7. Good! But... - I love this podcast and find it encouraging and helpful....but....sometimes when the guest shares something, instead of digging into what they just said, Gin will often use it as a spring board to share her own experience - and that's not always a bad thing as Gin's stories are very much needed. But when it happens over and over, it can be a bit jarring. Especially when you want to hear the guest elaborate more on whatever it was they just spoke about.
8. Nice experiences but - I would like to hear more from women who lost lbs or more doing clean fasting! While the other experiences are encouraging, I am looking for stories of women who have substantial weight to lose with co-existing conditions. I know there are a few here but would like Gin to focus on those who have overcome many obstacles to encourage women like me.

Dr. Gundry interviews some of the world's leading health experts to glean life-changing insights and offers cutting-edge wellness advice during his topical lectures.
Release date: 2023-02-28
1. Dr. Gundry is very knowledgeable - I listen to many Dr. Gundry’s podcast and believe he is a very knowledgeable doctor. He knows a lot about lectin and vegetables can cause gut issue. He helped many people to restore their health. I always read the reviews from his viewers. I personally have not tried any products from Dr. Gundry yet. I hope I can try them someday soon.
2. Informative and life-changing - I’ve been following Dr. Gundry since reading his book, The Plant Paradox, in . The book and his teachings have changed my life and the way I think about health and wellness. I follow a handful of doctors with varying POV’s and Dr. G is definitely one of my faves. I love the different guests he has on and all the impactful info presented in each episode. And he’s hilarious D
3. Healthy Habits - I read Dr. Gundry’s book after my boyfriend recommended it to me. I absolutely devoured it and then decided that I wanted to learn more about the subject. His podcast doubles the information of his book and he brings plenty of different kinds of material and guests to his show to entertain various kinds of wellness interests! / would share with my family and friends for healthier habits $ interesting lore!
4. Truly Amazing!! - I came across his podcast while browsing YouTube but I couldn’t believe that it definitely changed my way of thinking with regards to food choices. I am now a believer and I’m truly grateful for all the information you’ve continuously impart to help improve other peoples’ health. More power to you
5. Too many commercials - The podcast is worthwhile, but you need to take grains of salt. Some of views are extreme. Also too much commercial.This one episode he talked about exercise is beneficial, but the commercial right after was selling something I can’t remember, I only remember the pitch was convenience, you never have to move, you can sit on couch and with tape of finger, have it delivered to your doorstep. How ironic!
6. Finally - I’ve been scouring podcasts for quite a long time, and was looking for reliable, evidence-based information on diet. Many of the podcast out there have way too much information and a lot of banter, also, lots of product plugging which makes me question the reliability. I stumbled upon this podcast and I feel saved. I have listened to several episodes (while I work from home), and the information seems very solid to me and trustworthy. The best part is that Dr. Gundry does truly want to save us from ourselves. Thanks doc.
7. Used to love dr Grundy… - But his new information he is handing out is extremely disturbing and disappointing! I hope of anyone reads this, they skip this podcast. Don’t bother. Do your own research. I used to respect this guy but I have since lost all respect for the advice he is giving these millions of people…. Very sad. If you want to fast all the time, lose muscle mass, and get sick, this is the podcast for you!
8. Dr. Gundry saved my eyesight and my life - My whole life long, since about the age of ten, I suffered from acute recurrent iritis, autoimmune in nature. I’ve also had issues with joints. Around the age of thirty I developed all beginning MS symptoms as well. Dr. Gundry’s books and podcast saved my eyesight and my life. I’d be blind, incapacitated, and in a wheelchair if not for him. I was trying to write a comprehensive review detailing my full story here but it appears that I’m exceeding the character limit. My plan is to set up a blog site detailing my journey which would help iritis sufferers such as myself. You don’t have to lose your eyesight. Dr. Gundry’s diet works well for autoimmune conditions. It’s not easy to implement properly, at least it wasn’t for me in the beginning, but of now I can’t think of eating differently. I can’t think of what my life would be had Dr. Gundry not made the decision to give up his surgical practice and embark on a journey of helping patients like me. I can’t fully express my gratitude to him. Thank you, Dr. Gundry. You’ve saved yet another person from losing their health and life. You’ve also saved the life of a mother and improved the life of a little boy on a spectrum, my son.

Release date: 2023-02-25
1. Cynthia Thurlow is a wealth of knowledge!! - I have been listening to Cynthia for several years now and have learned so much from her - fasting, nutrition, health, exercise tips, etc. There are always multiple nuggets to take away from each episode and I love how revenant her guests are too. Thanks for all the expertise Cynthia!!
2. Cynthia talks too much - Cynthia has excellent guests on her program but she uses too much of the time talking. I want to hear what the expert has to say. She will talk - minutes straight. We all know she was in the hospital. We all know she was on anti-fungals. No need to retell that story nearly every episode. Many times it seems she has a point she wants to make and then allows the expert to agree with her. I’d much prefer simple questions and listening to what the expert has to share. Usually I just FF through her talking. Also, production is amateurish in the way commercials are inserted - sometimes mid sentence!
3. All of the information you will need!!! Incredible - I found Everyday Wellness when I had an unexpected personal health setback. At , I found myself rapidly gaining weight, uncontrollably heavy and unpredictable periods, and incredibly unhappy. My allopathic OBGYN suggested a hysterectomy and it was a big “no way” from me. My OB shrugged her shoulders when I talked about weight gain, horrible sleep, and my cycles. I refused to accept this as my “future” or “destiny.” I started a research deep dive and stumbled upon Cynthia’s TED talk (that I now know started it all). It was a big “A-Ha” moment for me. I immediately bought the IF book (also incredible) and started listening. I am on my track to being the version of me I somehow lost over the past years. Thin, strong, lean, sober, empowered. I have listened to about episodes thus far since finding it In September . Thank you, Cynthia!!!
4. Decent pod - This podcast is informative and well done. The topics are germane and useful. I learn something every time. The editing of the ads is poorly done and need improvement. Also, I mean this kindly, the word “misnomer” does not mean what Cynthia thinks it means. She uses it incorrectly in many episodes. Update - been listening for quite awhile now. I like the topics and the speakers. Lots of contradictory information. Lots of broad statements with no explanation (e.g., how she tried HRT but the results were terrible. How so? We’ll never know). We do not need to hear again CT’s story, which we get in every episode as she explains to every guest. Also realizing how privileged and wealthy one must be to implement all these concepts. It’s frustrating. Finally, lots of self congratulation with how CT raises her kids. Despite claiming to try to instill something other than a mindset focused on consumerism, we also hear about all her amazing world travels with her kids, the many expensive interventions (e.g., CGM for extended periods), and expensive testing. Too much distraction and I find it hard to listen anymore.
5. Dr Tabatha - Part & with Dr Tabatha Barber should be required listening for all women ages & up. I’m a mental health professional and often recommended episodes of EWP to my clients. However, Dr Tabatha & Cynthia touch on almost every key element of being a woman and understanding our body. Job well done!
6. Geeking out on exogenous ketones! - What a great podcast with Dr. Latt Mansor on Exogenous Ketones. How it is helpful for energy & mental focus. His knowledge is mind-blowing. Also, enjoyed the info on strength training and sarcopenia. As a year old female this information was very beneficial for me and my longevity. Thanks you Cynthia for for all the guests you have on your podcast. Laurie Price Loved, loved this podcast with Margaret Floyd Barry! She shared foods that can cause inflammation, tests we can take to see if we have gut issues along with how to eliminate those foods that can disrupt our gut. Both Margaret and Cynthia are open with personal information that helped me become aware of the importance of taking care of your gut. I definitely gave this one stars. One of my favorite podcasts I’ve listened to so far. Laurie Price
7. Love the information, let’s make products affordable - I love the information Cynthia provides and the guests she invites to converse with. All her episodes have been super informative and I have applied many of the concepts presented. My one wish would be to make some of the products more affordable so we could reach a broader community. For example - I was fascinated by the most recent melatonin conversation. Yet, when I discovered that Sandman was $ for a day supply it made me wonder how many people could truly afford some these great products. We need to make functional medicine more accessible to all. Cynthia- Thank you for the work you do and information you share with us.
8. Please let your guests speak - I love the content but Cynthia talks way too much! It’s like a / ratio if not more of just Cynthia talking about her clients and her life. I would love to hear more from the guests... It’s a little annoying. It takes away from having these amazing experts there when they don’t get to talk. Update: I can’t listen to it anymore. I tried to listen to the one about melatonin and Cynthia went on a -min rant and then played a commercial. It was full minutes that we didn’t get to listen to this guy. It was about her kids, her experience, and her reading the guy’s book. It just feels a little self-centered. Meanwhile some podcasters will just turn the mic over to their guests and not say a word for min. Maybe people like the way they do it here. I got tired so I’m out.

1. months, amazing results - I have just completed my fourth month of Zoe and I’ve been listening to this podcast all along. I have gained so much from not only the various guests you have had on this podcast, but from the program itself. The AI piece of this discussion becomes quite fascinating, and your guest today was compelling to say the least. As a descendent of many people with cardio issues, I would be very curious about the device discussed that connects to an iPhone to monitor the heart. Beyond that thank you so much for this podcast and for the Zoe program as the doctor said it may not be for everyone, but in my humble opinion, it would most certainly have value for everyone. Cheers.
2. Episode on Food Intolerance Filled With Red Flags - I have studied nutrition as a hobby for many years, and while I am not an expert, I’ve learned how to be skeptical of when a source is trying to give you actual info vs just trying to sell you something. I was curious about the food intolerance episode to see if they had any info I didn’t already know. Unfortunately, I just mostly saw red flags. The first red flag is whenever a guest expert has revolutionary new info that will solve your problem unlike ever before. And this happens by minute when Dr. Bulsiewicz lets us know we can train our microbes so that we could actually tolerate our intolerable foods in amounts we “didn’t think was possible.” The second red flag comes when they get on topic of how to find out if you have an intolerance. The good doctor goes into details about the gold standard method of temporary restriction and observing the response. Yet, for some reason, he never uses the term “elimination diet,” which is the most well known term for this method. Why won’t they use this term? Here comes the third red flag. “Dr. B” says this cannot be done just by reading something on the internet, and that there is “no question” that you need support from a dietitian to do this method (which he still has not named). But wouldn’t you know it? The doctor says there ARE other resources out there after all, like his new book!! What are the odds of that?! (Side note: learning about how to do an elimination diet does take a lot of work. But it can absolutely be done by finding content online that is truly meant to educate you.) And for the final and most disturbing red flag, by the end of the episode, they just start talking about how amazing Zoe is and that their research is doing what other research can’t. But if you go to Zoe’s website, you are not presented with any research studies or scientific data. Instead, you are prompted to “get started” with their personalized nutrition program. Even when you scroll down to find a button that says “learn more about our science,” it leads you to a page with buttons that say “take the first step” and “get started with our quiz.” And the website just seems to continue over and over like that. And if you go to Dr. Bulsiewicz website, it’s the same thing. It’s just about selling his product. The sad thing is that this episode starts off by saying the topic of intolerance is “full of pseudoscience, dubious blood tests, and miracle cures.” And yet, this episode plays out just like pseudoscience and miracle cures. So, as someone who enjoys learning about nutrition, the only “new things” I learned here were things that I could buy from them. It’s hard to even call this “clever marketing” because anyone with any basic knowledge of nutrition could see that the purpose here is not to educate you, but to get your money. Best of luck to Zoe and Dr. B.
3. Love this podcast - Just discovered Zoe’s podcast this summer and have been a regular follower since. The guest scientists easily break down their data into layman’s terms, all with a casual attitude and humor. There are no “must do your everyday dietary needs this way only.” It is so refreshing to hear one size does not fit all and each person’s individual preferences are valid and could be due to certain food sensitivity.
4. Incorrect science - Straight up incorrect science about meat. Meat is not bad for you. Telling people to eat a beyond burger instead of a grass fed and finished burger from a regenerative farm is so bad! Buy your meat from a regenerative farm and it won’t destroy the environment. Factory farming is the issue.
5. Science is important - Without science about food and nutrition, we will not know what type of food/nutrition we need to help us with our allergies like I’m allergic to shellfish, so I have to be careful with what I am eating and what the food have in it , so I don’t break out. So that is why we need science about food and nutrition
6. Menopause is not a sign of bad health, so why present it as such? - Treating menopause as a pathological condition responsible for extensive health problems and possibly leading to death is misleading and frankly, quite irresponsible, especially since the guest speaker is a medical doctor from England. Her view is a learned, cultural (First World and Anglo Saxon) response to a normal process. The “facts” the guest presents are taken out of context and shows, despite her education, a pretty basic lack of understanding of standard scientific studies. Needless to say, she is selling something, and I am not buying it.
7. Lost all credibility with Episode - I love Dr. Will B and was excited to find out that he would be a regular guest on this podcast. But listening to episode number three and the fact that they would tout any benefit of alcohol was enough to lose me as a listener. The negative effects of alcohol far outweigh any positive benefit of drinking wine with your meal. Eat grapes.
8. Delicious and Informative - This was a delight to listen to! I learned so much relevant to health, but even more delightfully, relevant to upping my standards and expectations for really (really) good chocolate! I won’t be able to rest until I’ve tried this magical dark milk chocolate and I now feel justified in spending the money on it…my taste buds (and gut!) will thank you even if my wallet doesn’t!

Release date: 2023-03-06
1. Just… Why - There is absolutely nothing relatable about the new hosts. I’m so tired of them trying to shove self love and body positivity down our throats, yes it’s a good thing but be realistic! It makes me cringe so hard. Maybe in the past some of the episodes could be deemed “problematic” but at least they were funny, relatable and a reflection of what the listeners actually think/feel. Especially the episodes with Jared were always so funny but he’s probably not coming back because the new hosts will just attack him hot being honest They just feel so fake and obsessed with being politically correct it’s obnoxious
2. This isn’t working… - I am a back for seconds subscriber and LOVE the eps with Sami and Aleen… but I almost want to unsubscribe all together to send a message that it’s just not working with these two new hosts… they are not relatable nor great interviewers, and really not funny. I love sex and I think it’s a great topic to discuss and no one should be shamed for speaking about it but when EVERY podcast somehow segways to a sex convo or a weird sex joke that’s not funny at all it’s just annoying and cringy… the trends and especially the recent skin care episode really sealed the deal for me… I hope the Betches team realizes that these two don’t really have what it takes to carry this podcast and they cut their losses and either cancel the show or get new hosts… It makes me sad that my fave pod is now awful
3. This is why I hate Emily’s solo pod too - Just doing the same nonsense- making claims of authority about a topic without knowing ANYTHING. I didn’t know this pod existed but came bc Tracey Carnazzo plugged it. But yeah, these hosts are just actively harming people by spreading their uninformed opinions.
4. New hosts are TERRIBLE - Someone needs to say it! Very poor content from out of touch, privileged women who use buzzword after buzzword as a replacement for actual insight. So, so cringe. And stop trying to make “journ” happen!! I’ve never had a visceral reaction to hearing a word before but every time they say journ it triggers my gag reflex
5. Relatable and entertaining - Some of you are SO pressed about what’s ultimately free and entertaining content. If you want scientific advice read medical publications or see a specialist. The hosts never claim to give out medical advice or be experts. This podcast (old hosts and new) has always been about having relatable discussions around diet culture and the wellness industry. Of course Remy and Emily aren’t going to be a carbon copy of Sami and Aleen, but I still enjoy tuning in and hearing their takes/convos. Thanks hosts and betches for your hard work and entertainment you provide!
6. Don’t love it - I started listening to the podcast when it was Sami and Aleen and although it wasn’t my top favorite I still enjoyed it. I just can’t get into it with the new hosts. I don’t agree with a lot of their takes. For example in the representation in TV episode they had “This is Us” on the list but then took it off because there was only one fat character who has a love story with another fat character who met at a weight watchers meeting. So? That’s also where she met her best friend who was “skinny” but also had disordered eating issues. Did y’all even watch the show? I think the show did portray some real life occurrences and did it well.
7. It’s better than ever - I love love love Sami and Aleen and I was so nervous when I heard we were getting new hosts, buuuut I have to say the new hosts (Emily and Remi) are better than I ever could have imagined and now this show is actually my favorite podcast! I love that I know they are never going to be triggering, and they are so funny and their vibe is just so good, I feel like I’m with friends who GET it. I just can’t express enough what a great show this is with Emily and Remi as they talk about body image and intuitive eating and dealing with their own relationships with food and triggering people in their lives. It’s so relatable, if you’ve ever struggled with food this is a great podcast for you!
8. Uninformed and dumb - I listened to a couple episodes and was truly shocked by the ignorant and blatantly wrong things they talk about. The worst one example was in the “ health trends forecast”dismissing ayurvedic medicine without understanding even surface level knowledge, not even identifying the correct doshas. These girls need to do some research if they want to discuss such topics because they honestly just sound dumb.

1. Lost lbs - I am years old and lost lbs being on a whole plant base diet. I have NEVER felt better. I LOVE listening to Chuck and the hosts on this podcast while I clean a K square foot home for a living getting my steps of K in each day. I went back to eating meat twice in the two years and have found that it’s the worst for my body and that I have less inflammation and better gut digestion. Whole plant base foods ROCK and I’m saving the animals. Thank you so much for all your education you give us all!!!!
2. Best health podcast on the planet - I found this podcast about a year ago when I first went plant-based. I had heard Chuck Carroll interviewed on another podcast and was deeply inspired by his story. He does an excellent job as moderator, is entertaining but also serious when the subject calls for it. I have binged listened to almost all of the podcasts and have learned so much! There are so many tips for meal prepping and just great encouragement overall to stay the course. I’m determined to keep going and I owe a huge debt of gratitude to this wonderful program!
3. Evidence-based with excellent practical tips - As a clinician who routinely checks sources, funding, and stats analysis when I hear of a new study, I highly recommend PCRM’s Exam Room. The science discussed is evidence-based and is non-biased (which is surprisingly hard to find these days). I always look forward to the next episode, and I recommended this podcast to all my patients. Thanks Chuck and team for making this pod possible.
4. Love the Exam Riom - I’ve found this podcast to be a wonderful mix of solid nutritional information and support for eating a whole food plant-based diet. Although I have been a vegetarian for decades, over recent years my diet deteriorated to include plenty of dairy and junk foods. When I decided to work on improving my health with an eye to preventing disease and aging well, I knew my diet needed a major overhaul. Thankfully, I knew about PCRM and found this podcast. In just weeks (including the food focused Thanksgiving and Christmas season) I’ve lost pounds. The Exam Room podcast helps me stay focused and confident I can make the changes lifelong. Thanks, Chuck! Keep up the great work!
5. Anti-Vax WTH? - Dr T Colin Campbell is an anti-vaxxer? This makes the whole show sound illegitimate. I didn’t realize he’s a paranoid kook. His only explanation for WHY he’s anti-vax is “look at the research.” This doesn’t explain anything, since people cherry-pick what they want to see. I would really like to hear WHY he’s anti-vax. I can’t listen to this nonsense. I’m disappointed to hear what a wack-a-doodle he is. You can boost your immunity with WFPB and still get vaccinated, peoples.
6. Amazing podcast - I’ve been listening to the Exam Room podcast now about a year, I became WFPB about a year and a half ago and haven’t felt better. I have had some health problems with hormonal imbalances and autoimmune thyroid disease and it has helped me feel better and even several of my abnormal lab work readings completely normalize. I love the guests on the show, Dr. B is my fave! It’s easy to listen to, I listen a lot in the car or when I go for a run. It has helped me understand much more about things I put in my body for better health, and even open my eyes to things I should avoid. Thank you and keep them going!
7. Excellent - When it comes to nutrition and if you are wondering who or what to trust, then start here with the gold standard "The Exam Room by the Phsicians Committee" podcast. Tons of information and research from nutritionists, doctors and results from people who've improved their health. I've learned so much from this podcast.
8. Intelligent, fact based, research driving information - The PCRM podcast reinforces my efforts to be vegan in my efforts to be the healthiest person I can be. I appreciate the nonjudgmental presentation of information and the emphasis on making choices and living consequences.
And thank you for all you do for animal rights. Great progress is being made.
and feeling vegan great!!!

1. Loving the podcast! - I recently graduated from the Health and Wellness FMCA and am so happy to be listening to your podcast with its strong foundation in Functional Medicine. I’ve been learning a lot from you and your guests and love the way you share important health information. Also loving your protein powder and start my days with the Fab smoothies. Thank you for everything you’re contributing into the wellness space!
2. Kelly promotes and normalizes orthorexia - Kelly is promoting and normalizing orthorexia. I became a fan of Kelly’s a few years ago, have purchased both of her books, and followed along on Instagram and this podcast. I have known for a while that I struggle with disordered thoughts around food, exercise, and my body, and I finally have been working on recognizing, questioning, and releasing these thoughts. I came to the realization that Kelly’s message and the things she says are very triggering and are the SAME messages pushed by the diet industry wrapped up in a fake fake fake “love yourself” bow. She is very condescending and has so many messages of shame hidden beneath what she says. She touts “food freedom” but is actually super restrictive. She’s a healthy individual yet wears a CGM (why?!? This is way too obsessive, if you are not diabetic or have health conditions where you need to monitor your glucose levels you shouldn’t be wearing a CGM). It’s gross that she’s amassed so many naive followers.
3. So appreciative - Thank you so much for providing helpful and healing knowledge to us through this platform. I’m listening to episode with Dr. LaPera and am totally blown away. This resonates so much with me as I never had the language to describe the internal battles I experienced for years and now I understand that I was checked out as a result of not being able to handle difficult emotions and feelings. I never learned how to regulate and there was never any repair/discussion after a conflict. I’ve used food and disassociation to cope with internal struggles. This is so valuable and fascinating. Thank you so much!!!
4. Love this pod! - As a fellow functional med RD I love Kelly’s approachable podcast! The science of nutrition is everything BUT it can also be very complicated and daunting to understand. Kelly does a wonderful job of simplifying the science and making it fun and INTERESTING for her listeners-both practitioners and health warriors alike! Her podcast is one of my favorites!
5. Excellent! - I discovered Be Well by Kelly about a year ago and I cannot tell you how much I love this podcast! She interviews such inspiring and diverse professionals from the health and wellness world to help us all dive a little deeper into our own health and wellness and understand what’s going on inside and how to better support ourselves. To put it quite simply, she empowers us to take control of our health and wellness! Thank you Kelly!
6. David jockers’ religious talk was a turn off - I had to stop listening to this guest as his constant references to religion and the Bible were triggering. It felt like he was proselytizing to your audience, and that felt cheap. Indoctrination is such a horrible thing to do to kids; it just hurt my soul that he’s doing this to his kids.
7. Love Kelly & all of her guests! - It is so impactful to see a woman focused on caring well for herself, and then using the overflow to lifts up others through her heart and work. She also uses this podcast to give a platform to people who are doing incredible things in this world. People who also lift each other up, who deserve to be seen and heard in a world that gets so loud with people focused on tearing others down. Thank you, thank you!!
8. Oh dear - I just heard her on another show and thought id give her podcast a try but after reading reviews aboutrecommendations to listen to Joe Rogan… well, I will not give this podcast my precious time. I would have a hard time trusting her since I know we disagree on some fundamentals. I am moving on.
Helping people make peace with food since 2013. Registered dietitian nutritionist, certified intuitive eating counselor, and journalist Christy Harrison, MPH, RD, CEDS talks with guests and answers listener questions about making peace with food, healing from disordered eating, learning body acceptance, practicing intuitive eating, escaping harmful wellness culture, and more--all from a body-positive, anti-diet perspective. Along the way, Christy shares her own journey from disordered eater and ...
Release date: 2023-02-27
1. Life-changing - I could never thank Christy Harrison enough if I tried. The amount of times that this podcast alone has kept me from relapsing in my eating disorder has been completely life altering. The amount of care, research, and dedication to honesty and truth that is put into this podcast has saved my life - it helped me learn about intuitive eating, actually start eating again, and make peace with my chronically ill body and with food. Christy, your work is so powerful and does so much good. Thank you for all you do, and for this wonderful wonderful podcast!
2. Life Changing - This podcast has helped change my life and get out of a disordered eating space. When I was early on learning about intuitive eating and HAES, I listened to the archive extensively because I felt like I needed to fill my ears with these refreshing ideas and the multitude of perspectives Christy invites as guests. I often re-listen to certain episodes and refer to friends.
3. Non-Diet is not All-or-Nothing - Really liked the most recent show. I appreciate the nuance I haven’t seen in your work before. You used to come across as having a all-or-nothing attitude around HAES and Non-Diet, but I’ve seen more nuance today and in the past few months and it’s very refreshing. Please keep it up.
4. Incredible, Eye Opening and Healing - This podcast is life changing. It has helped me unpack years of harmful diet culture messages. I feel badly for those who do not find this podcast as helpful, but I know they are still stuck in diet culture and are not ready to “see the light.” Health at Every Size needs to be a household name as the only way to treat people of all shapes and sizes with the respect and dignity they were born with. Thank you so much for posting and helping people recover from disordered eating and realizing that regular medicine is failing us all. Health at Every Size is literally life saving. Thank you, Christy! Remember there’s no such thing as a bad food!
5. You need to read current research or go to school - You are bashing functional medicine doctors who spent years on an average understanding science about increased gut permeability. Just do a pub med research on increased intestinal permeability before you deny its existence. I would give you articles but I think you should do your own research. I understand you had a lot of trauma and you healed it but that doesn’t mean you start blaming doctors who have a lot more education and experience and misleading people who are already confused.
6. Love this pod for a healthy foodie! - I LOVE how this podcast focuses on eating and creating food of nutritional value rather than restrictive diets or harmful wellness practices. Christy does a great job of bringing on guests that remind us how important it is that we take care of our bodies and enjoy the food we eat!
7. Irrelevant - I completely disagree with the message of this podcast, you cannot be healthy at every size. We live in an era of over processed, industrialized food laden with HFCS, rancid soy oils, trans fats, preservatives and natural & artificial flavors. Intuitive eating would work if Christy said to only intuitively eat whole, minimally processed foods. If we intuitively ate those foods no one would be obese. The reason for the modern obesity epidemic and even conditions like acne is the laboratory created poison we are putting in our bodies.
8. Anti-diet HAES Social justice podcast all in one! - I appreciate Christy’s episodes and have been a huge fan of her book Anti-Diet. She sticks to her values and is honest about how she’s grown across the lifespan of the podcast. I appreciate this transparency and authenticity. Great range of guests and perspectives - from nutritionists to writers, activists, and therapists.
The Fasting Method Podcast is your source for the science of intermittent fasting, offering the best advice and most compelling insight on what it takes to lose the weight for good. Co-hosted by world-leading fasting experts, Megan Ramos, Nadia Pateguana, N.D., and Terri Lance, Ph.D., each episode takes a deep dive on a range of hot topics, and answers listeners' questions about fasting.
Release date: 2023-02-28
1. Excellent podcast regarding fasting - One of the best podcasts for learning about fasting, the benefits of fasting, motivation to try fasting. I've been practicing intermittent fasting and hour fasting for years but I always seem to learn a thing or two from this podcast. Well done, Megan and Nadia!
2. Great Information, Production Issues - This podcast is a great resource to add to your fasting toolkit, lots of useful information! My minor annoyances are with the production and presentation. The sound isn’t great, usually very tinny and hallow sounding, bracelets jangling or other background noises and just all around sound levels being off. The other issue is as amazing as Megan Ramos is, she tends to be extremely long winded, usually due repeating herself constantly by rewording things over and over again within the same response, and has a bad tendency of cutting into guest speakers time and answers by going off on a tangent with filler comments. While they’re usually complimentary, we get it, move on, zip it and let the person speak.
3. Science please - I’m always open minded to hear about different perspectives and I love wellness podcasts, but I find this one particularly concerning and here’s why. I’m not hearing any science backing these claims… ex: when talking about resistant starches, the hosts stating that you have to eat starches cold (not true) and then basically coming around to say that those foods should be completely avoided by anyone who is insulin resistant is pretty alarming to me as a healthcare professional. Surely they are doing research on the questions before recording the show, so it’s concerning that there aren’t any cited studies backing up these answers they are providing... at least state the studies are ongoing? Look into it if you’re curious… lots of studies going on with CGMs, and the results are pretty interesting, and please do not believe that reheated potatoes, or any starch for that matter, is the enemy. Bottom line: I think it’s irresponsible to make claims and not back them up. Buyer beware- would recommend listening to Huberman Lab or other credible sources that use science to back up their recommendations.
4. Love this podcast! - So informative and inspiring! Both Megan and Nadia are engaging and helpful- I’ve been fasting and eating OMAD for about months and am feeling great… way better results than any diet I’ve tried before, too! I’d also like to offer some constructive criticism - while Megan’s bubbly enthusiasm is very sweet, I think her laughing during the podcasts is very distracting; it undermines her credibility and detracts from how very knowledgeable she is. I believe with a little practice / increased awareness that this is happening, Megan can address this and present herself as a true expert who commands respect (which she obviously is!).
5. Amazing podcast! - I love listening to Megan and Nadia! They share so much great information and answer so many important questions related to the fasting lifestyle. I love that they encourage listeners to find what works for them instead of a one size fits all approach. I’m so glad they are getting this important information out to the public. If you struggle with your weight, type diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver or any other metabolic syndrome, I highly recommend this podcast!
6. The absolute best podcast on fasting - I’m just one episode I figured out what I had been doing wrong and the weight melted away and continues to do so. I’m such a fan I want to change my career and join you to help people. I look around and you are saving lives! Literally! You are all the most amazing people. Thank u
7. Wow thank you! - Just found your podcast and I am catching up. Every episode is gold!! I’m listening twice as you answer questions and help us navigate through social media noise to get to the facts based of your clinical experience and research. The pace is perfect, very easy to listen to and you both come off as very caring and intelligent without being condescending! So, thank you : )
8. Truly sensible and beneficial - Such human, so down to earth, so scientific yet si practical. The thing that really made me feel so drawn to this podcast is the human side of these two wonderful ladies. Listening to them makes me feel like there is this wise sister / girlfriend who is there to support me in this journey of. Healing through fasting. Thank you so very much!

1. Changed my life! - I’m pounds down and living so much more free from binging and the habits that have haunted me and my body since middle school. Thank you Heather for living your life and for taking us on the journey with you! You changed my life. Looking forward to the next year and even the next with my kiddos and husband.
2. Sane, compassionate, realistic advice - I found this podcast as I was nearing my goal of losing lbs. Heather’s advice on weight loss maintenance set me up for long-term maintenance success. Her advice is so gentle, reasonable, sustainable and successful. If you struggle with any of these issues, Heather can help shift your mindset: binge eating, motivation and discipline, losing weight, maintaining weight, dieting, afternoon snacking, evening grazing, handling “forbidden” foods, emotional eating, eating out, tracking calories, impulsive eating, self-sabotage, all the greatest hits. She doesn’t offer a plan, but she helps you figure out a plan that works for you. Highly recommended.
3. Sanity Saver - In a world of crazy, Half Size Me offers a sustainable, positive, realistic approach. Heather does a great job of framing realistic change based on what works for you. I now feel like a scientist of my own body/weight management plan. By setting minimums and setting goals at a low bar I can actually achieve, I trust myself more and I’ve lost lbs in months and I can keep this up till I reach my goals, gradually bringing in new habits I can live with. Check this podcast out today!
4. Amazing! - Learn weight loss is such a realistic way! I have been dieting on and off for all of my adult life and this let me see it in a completely different way. I have been listening for months and am now pounds away from my goal weight and it has been an enjoyable process. Love heather and all her teachings!
5. Incredible show and community - I have been listening to Heather for years and have loved the focus on habits you can really do long term. I was resistant to joining the community because I didn’t want to spend the money, and over those years I lost and regained weight, finally gaining even more. I realize the cost of the Half Size Me membership is nothing compared to the costs of obesity with my blood pressure creeping up. I have loved being in the community, competing in the challenges and engaging with people at all stages in the journey. As much as I don’t want to admit it, I’m someone who needs accountability. months postpartum and I lost all my pregnancy weight and s more so far, in a way I feel very comfortable with. Thanks for all you do, Heather!
6. Highly recommend!!! This podcast helped me tremendously, with more than weight loss. - I am so glad that this was the first podcast I tried when I first began my weight loss journey months ago… after having two kids back-to-back and experiencing postpartum depression, I was binge eating/emotionally eating and felt like a stranger in my own body. Heather presents a practical and realistic approach with a focus on what’s sustainable… what is going to work for YOU (maybe not for your friend or the influencer or Instagram, because your life and body is your own!!!) and is something that you can see yourself doing - and be comfortable/happy doing it - for the long term. Thanks Heather, for all the content you provide. You have helped me in more ways than the scale could convey. I’m so grateful that I am once again feeling comfortable, capable, and confident in my own skin!!
7. HSM podcast a trusted source - I lead wellness groups through our church and use Heathers podcasts and YouTube videos as a resource we can trust for all the mindset work she guides us through. So grateful for the great content she literally gives away to help many on what can be a very tough journey for those of us who use food as a way to cope in life. Highly recommend this podcast
8. Tremendous Weight Loss Resource! - Heather is an inspirational woman who has personal experience with weight loss. Her no gimmick approach is sustainable for life. This podcast covers challenges in the weight loss journey but approaches them with a “big picture” mentality with strategies that fit into real life scenarios. It is evident in the coaching episodes that she really listens to her clients. She gives very specific advice on how they can achieve and maintain weight loss and still enjoy life. I listen to every podcast and learn something from each one.

Release date: 2023-02-27
1. Quiet the diet - Really enjoyed the last episode on anxiety so informative. Full of very translatable and relatable information. Such a timely topic. The current episode of binge and stress eating is such an important topic and they do an amazing job. As an outpt mental health therapist that body and mind connection is the most important tool we have to make changes. I am listening with my pen and paper ready for all the information. Thanks for this.
2. There is no one better than Michelle!! - Michelle is the most insightful person I’ve ever encountered when it comes to the topic of diets, weight loss, food intolerance and the general intersections of food and life. There is no one I’d rather learn from… and to get to hear from other amazing practitioners?!?? It’s a no brainer. Great listen, highly recommend.
3. Amazing dietician - I can’t say enough positive things about Michelle as a dietician and as a person! When I was pregnant, I failed my glucose test and was so afraid I had gestational diabetes. Michelle instantly made me feel better, reassuring me that there were healthy ways to check on and take care of my body and my baby, without totally changing my lifestyle and following a restrictive gestational diabetes diet like my OBGYN had recommended. Better yet, she didn’t make me feel any shame about the potential diagnosis and I felt so much better knowing that I had her on my team. She explained how gestational diabetes worked in clear and informative ways, making sure that I had the information about my body’s specific needs. She’s amazing to work with and I’m so glad that she finally has a podcast so that she can reach more people!
4. Definitely worth your time! - I follow Michelle Shapiro on Instagram and have learned so much from her posts! I’ve been waiting for the first episode of “Quiet the Diet with Michelle Shapiro” and she did not disappoint! This episode was packed with knowledge bombs and had me nodding my head saying “YES!” so many times! Sadly, I have experienced some of what she describes with traditional medical professionals and it can be demoralizing and defeating. You walk around thinking something is wrong with you a lot of the time! I love Michelle’s whole body approach to health and the enormous respect she and her team have for their clients. You can tell she speaks from experience and her vast knowledge of functional nutrition. We’re all super busy and have endless content available but this podcast is definitely worth your time! I can’t wait for the next episode!
5. Glad I listened - I’ve listened to podcast after podcast on this particular subject and I was thinking should I even bother listening to another one? I’m so glad I did because it hit the nail right on the head for me. I’m thankful for the acknowledgment of wanting to lose weight and that it’s ok! I did the the intuitive eating without any guidance of how the body actually works and here I am lbs later and struggling with the thought of even wanting to lose weight because I “shouldn’t” want to. Looking forward to listening in the future.
6. We waited too long for this! - Super excited for this podcast series!! We can always count on Michelle for being so open and honest especially sharing her own personal experience. Michelle is unique in that you can guarantee laughs, cries, and empowerment throughout every session (that I’m sure will translate into this podcast as well). AND she’s always got your back!! Excited for the raw and educational conversations that come out of this podcast!
7. An Awesome Podcast !! - Michelle Shapiro is one of the most knowledgeable, compassionate, and relatable professionals I have ever met, and this podcast proves to be no different ! Listening to her tackle and unpack important topics is fascinating and fun. Her approach is truly integrative and filled with love. She has helped me personally navigate through my anxiety and how it affects my body. I CANNOT wait for the next episode !!
8. Incredible! - Episode of this podcast was actually the best podcast I have ever listened to. I will be tuning in to all of these fabulous episodes in the future. Michelle brings an interesting opening to her series with her words and attitude toward the topic. The atmosphere created in the podcast is one that opens your own thoughts and ideas to functional nutrition.

1. Starting year of WFPB! - Plant Strong is one of my favorite podcasts to listen to. There are always great guests and information. Listening keeps me up to date on the latest findings, new studies and food/recipes. I know I have a place to go to get the inspiration and support I need. I have all of the Esselstyn cookbooks and feel equipped to manage this lifestyle. Thank you.
2. Informative and Fun - I went plant based a little over a year ago, and I feel I couldn’t have made it without this valuable information! It really encouraged me to stay the course especially in the beginning when the mental battle was so hard. I always look forward to new episodes, but honestly I have binged listened to almost all of the past episodes. Some of them I play again, especially on tougher days when I feel like I’m the only one in my circle doing this. But I feel so much better physically and mentally that there’s no way I’m going back now!
3. Thrilled I Found You - I so enjoy listening to your podcast. I am binge listening to your episodes starting from the beginning. I enjoy listening to all of your guests but I particularly enjoy it when you interview and interact with physicians. It’s fascinating listening to their backgrounds, why they became physicians and why they turned to WFPB eating. Gee, who knew, physicians are people, too! Only kidding but I hope you understand what I mean. Thank you for a wonderful and enlightening podcast!
4. Hellah was a great podcast - Rip, been listening to you for a long time. You’ve become a fantastic interviewer by getting into your guest’s stories at the beginning of their journey. The Hellah interview really put a smile on my face. Going plant based dropped my cholesterol points AFTER being on a statin for over years. Obviously a lot of weight loss took place. As an aside, when I think about eating something with a lot of oil or fat (but vegan) I can hear your dad in my head yelling at me to drop those oils. I need to hear that given my history with heart disease. Keep up the good work.
5. Thanks for being on my journey - Rip! Yesterday I wad reflecting on my (almost) three year journey of going WFPB and losing kg. The road has not always been perfect but I’ve stuck to primarily plants! You have been such a constant through it all. I remember when I first started the journey and was doing daily walks, I searched for a podcast about plants to keep me learning and convinced it was the right choice. You popped up and I’ve listened to you every week since. Thank you for turning op week after week and bringing such amazing and inspirational guests to us. I’ve become aware of so many people doing the same as us through you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart…you’ll never know how your show has helped me keep going to become PLANTSTRONG!!!
6. Podcast is a great follow-up to Forks Over Knives - With all the episodes now available, I have no shortage of interesting experts and/or success stories to listen to while I’m taking my daily exercise walk. I have been plant based for about years. My journey started when I first saw FOK. I will be years old next July (). I’m a retired M.D. Radiologist who graduated medical school in and completed a two-year Cardiovascular Radiology Fellowship, as well as an Internal Medicine internship (back when they still had them), and then worked in out-patient settings for more years while raising children.
What I noticed over those years was how obesity and so many chronic diseases and cancer, as well as heart disease, were becoming more and more common. Diseases I rarely or never saw in medical school and post-graduate years were becoming more and more common. And everybody was getting fat!!! My husband was choosing what to watch on TV one night, and he picked Fed Up, which led to Forks Over Knives. It was a Eureka moment! That was the answer: The Standard American Diet. We began our journey into becoming plantstrong, and it continues to this day. My husband and I are active and on no Rx meds. Both of us have signs of coronary artery disease, he with a -% focal narrowing in the LAD, for which we refused an emergency stent because he was asymptomatic, and me with a calcium score of about with calcification of all three coronary arteries. I am also asymptomatic. I’m in a conditioning class every Friday morning with my granddaughter and about guys in their ’s-’s. I found a Primary Care Physician in our area, Board Certified in Lifestyle Medicine, and we see her once a year. It looks like my husband and I will have a nice long retirement together.
7. Love everything about this podcast - II look forward each week to a new topic and have learned so much about a plant based lifestyle. You and your family are rockstars. I have to listen to some episodes on repeat as I go through them so fast. Thx again for your expertise and knowledge - I look forward to continuing the journey. Cheers
8. Dr. Will Bulsiewicz Wow! - I love your podcasts Rip! Thank you & your family for sharing and inspiring us all to have a healthier life. Today’s podcast was amazing! I will be reading this Dr. B’s book as soon as I can get my hands on it. Hard to find words that sum up how grateful I am for your inspiration and your families work!

1. Change your thinking - That was an epic rant I never write reviews I’ve been listening to you for over a year and a half now and I’ve never bothered to write one thing to say I listen. That rant about changing your thinking and looking at it from a different point of view was amazing thank you keep it up. Screw anyone that can’t look in the mirror.
2. Must listen! - Regardless of your perspective regarding peak performance and health optimization - Mike is a can’t miss resource and guide! He curates conversations - and topics - with a depth, breadth and energy that only someone truly committed to unpacking the nuance of living life to its fullest can. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!
3. Articulation: constructive critique - An individual providing health and wellness information, including, but not limited to, scientific data and academic research studies should be able to and comfortable with pronouncing the words that are part of scientific vernacular. This podcaster slurs his speech with words that are vital and frequently-included in scientific study—e.g. “statistically-significant” (there is a ‘G’ in the word significant). There were several others, but this one (“significant”) seems to be both the most prevalent, and also the most butchered. Slow down, please enunciate/avoid slurring your speech, don’t ‘cold read’ what you plan to quote and critically-review prior podcasts to assess areas of improvement (and adjust your technique accordingly). If the hope is to provide quality information to a captive audience, bludgeoning the listener’s auditory nerve will not achieve that goal. I really wanted to gather the information from the podcast (as a time-saver) and opted to read the entire study to avoid the off-putting lack of articulation from the podcaster. I’ll check back in a few months to see if any changes have been made.
4. SLOW DOWN!! - I love the content of your show. Really excellent content. But....PLEASE talk slower . I just can't keep up when you talk sooooo fast. Your interviews are conducted at a nice cadence, It’s when you monologue that you go ninety miles a minute . Get a metronome or something. That change would help attract more older people. You see where I’m coming from.
Did I mention how much I like your show?
5. Not a Doctor - I get it, Mike is not a Doctor……which is actually refreshing. He brings different points of view based on scientific studies and his personal experience in his field. He brings up questions the medical field does not. Until the doctors,CDC, FDA start communicating the necessity for healthy diet and exercise I will co to use to listen to this pod cast along with many others and form my own opinion. Wake up people and realize your health is in your own hands and the governments!
6. Great Information - I’ve been following Mike on Instagram for almost a year now and I just recently decided to throw on his podcast. Let’s just say it’s been days and I’ve almost listened to every episode. I can even express how much I enjoy this podcast and how educational and informative it is. Thank you Mike!
7. Keep it Up! - I’ve always had a passion for nutrition and fitness. Unfortunately, my younger sister, for whatever reason, never wanted to go outside with me when we were younger or to try the foods that I were trying. Perhaps it was because the rest of our family were obese, never exercised or even cared about such things. Anyways, this December () she said she’s ready and asked me for help to improve her health and I’m THRILLED! I just HAVE to credit you and your podcast to helping me improve my education about health and nutrition so that I may help her. I’m pumped and I really hope she keeps her motivation up. Thanks again!
8. Extremely biased and shaming-disappointing - I am a health professional and have been working in the health and fitness industry for over years now, so I have about podcasts I listen to and in their own way they all provide me with different perspective and sometimes education. I started listening to this podcast before the pandemic hit and appreciated the information it provided regarding health and wellness. However, since the pandemic this podcast has become extremely biased and shaming. He talks so fast while belittling people (or a group of people) and throws fancy words out there to make himself sound smart, but comes off as a real jerk. Honestly, it’s not always about being the smartest when you’re helping people in this field. It’s about the connection you make with people and the support you can give them-even the ones you don’t see eye-to-eye with. It’s very clear where he stands politically and it’s gone from an informational podcast to a political one. He sounds like a real jerk and lacks what a leader in the field should have. Shaming people and projecting your views in a podcast that is supposed to educate, teach, and guide people to a better way of life is just wrong. I will be unsubscribing after several years.

1. Thank you Jill! - As a CPT (certified personal trainer) and nutritionist I like to say I know enough to be dangerous. With that said it’s great to have a go to source to direct my clients to back up what I’m trying to teach them, but don’t have the time to. When they hear from me, you, and a few other medical podcast or audio books by research Dr.s it helps drive the info home. My only complaint is that Jill in her excitement sometimes cuts off Dr.s before they get to finish their point. Thank you for shining a big light on all the misinformation and fad diets!
2. No Sugarcoating - Jillian Michaels doesn’t sugarcoat anything (pun intended). Yep, she talks as if she just drank four cups of coffee (talks a mile a minute, especially during some of the tangential rants), everything is helpful information (even if some of the info makes me realize how much more I can do more for my health).
3. Candid and helpful information - The fact that so many people are triggered by her only goes to show she’s hitting on some element of truth. People love to hate Jillian and ‘cancel’ her but the fact is she’s continually learning and always goes back to the basics and holds people accountable for their actions. She reminds us to take responsibility and take action in our own lives.
4. If you care about your mental health please don’t listen to this - Jillian Michaels is such a toxic person and her past work has shown she doesn’t care about people at best and abuses people at worst. Her methods are cruel and don’t even work. She is the poster child for body shaming and fat phobia and she doesn’t deserve our attention or validation. Also for listeners who are trying to lose weight or are unhappy about their appearance please consider finding another health podcast. Jillian’s methods have been shown to destroy people’s self esteem, prioritize weight loss before overall health, and peddle diets that are dangerous and nearly impossible to stick to. Time’s up for this relic from s diet culture and there’s no room for her bigoted advise in the era of body positivity.
5. Episode - Not just about calories BUT THANK YOU for speaking out against the ridiculousness that is coming at your daughter. Unpopular opinion, you said so much truth and it’s about time someone spoke up. You said everything I have tried to put into words but haven’t been so articulate about. Maybe your daughter will be president one day! I enjoy your show and have always admired you’re “yes it’s hard, yes it’s unfair but you can do hard things and you aren’t alone.”
6. Daughter - I am years old and can relate a lot to your daughter in different ways. I only suggest maybe homeschool, get her to learn things that she wants to do. Almost like a trade school for what she wants to learn. On the other hand thank you for the podcast it’s brought positive light to my life ..on my long drives to work.
7. Gone to the dark side - I feel Jillian has gone to the dark side. Guest speakers all the time, and no real Jillian anymore. She don’t even answer questions from listeners. Nutrition and exercise, that’s what you do. Give the listeners motivation to do that. Not talk about issues we are trying to escape because mainstream media is killing us with it. After today’s “unbiased” podcast I have decided to stop listening. She said it wouldn’t be about sides, or anyone’s opinion, but the entire podcast was the “benefit of the covid vaccine” and how everyone should get it. Maybe everyone doesn’t need it. There wasn’t any conversation of the that side of things, and that is hugely disappointing. A very one-sided discussion on your “unbiased” podcast. Didn’t even give the other side a chance. Which again, is not even the basis of your podcast. Nutrition and exercise. We don’t want to listen to the politics on a fitness podcast. Disappointed former listener
8. Long time listener’s one note to the show - I love this show! I have been listening for years!! I love how straightforward Jillian is with her information and she always has on great guests!! I would love to see a cannabis expert though. One of the recent episodes they touched on cannabis consumption it seemed the view of cannabis is a little bit negative (as they have before with Jake and Jillian’s brother I believe) I just feel as an educational platform for mental health and fitness that bringing on an expert would be helpful especially because cannabis isn’t in Jillian’s wheelhouse. She is definitely entitled to her own personal opinion of cannabis as is everyone, but someone should lay out the facts and benefits for the audience. This is ! This is a conversation that should be had! AND IM TELLING YOU WORKING IN THE INDUSTRY MYSELF, IT IS NOT JUST THE KIDS SMOKING WEED. I love the show! I would love to see this topic expanded on. Keep being yourself and doing what you’re doing!! Thank you for so many entertaining years of podcasting!!

1. The Best. Period. - The Proof is an evidence based podcast exploring nutrition and overall wellness that you simply cannot afford to sleep on. This isn’t nutrition and fitness - this is a deep dive into the science that is presented in an easy to understand, compassionate, and nuanced way. It leaves you inspired and ready to implement all you’ve learned. Hands down the best health and wellness podcast out there right now.
2. Want accurate details? Simon’s your guy! - I’ve listened to the podcast for a while now. I remember when I found it I was so impressed because of Simon’s knowledge gained through research and his ability to drill down into the Why with his guests. And his guests want to give you the Why. As a plant based, , weightlifting, exercising fiend, if I have a question about health and wellness, Simon is one of the few I look to for a correct/unbiased answer. Thanks Simon!
3. Interesting and Helpful Conversations Every Week - I so appreciate Simon Hill and others like him who provide evidenced based information on topics for our health, wellbeing, longevity, and environment. If you’re looking for information that can help you change your life in positive ways, The Proof is one of the best resources I’ve found. Thank you, Simon!
4. A Must Listen and My Go To Resource - Finally, a place where people can go to find unbiased information about health and wellness. Being in the nutrition field myself, the plethora of information that is misguided and unsubstantiated is exhausting. Simon does an incredible job at sharing insight without bias from credible and well researched guests. A must listen if you have a question regarding any topic related to health/wellness.
5. A gift to the world - I’ve listened to this podcast for as long as it’s been out. I’ve never shared more episodes of any podcast I listen to than this one. Love Simon’s relaxed interview style. He always has fantastic guests—leading experts in their fields. Mind blowing conversations. Must have conversations even. This podcast will not only satisfy your thirst for knowledge, but also inspire and propel you into action in many areas of life if you let it
6. Can’t get enough of this podcast - I’ve enjoyed The Proof podcast for several years now. I’m a podcast junkie and it’s one of my top three favs. I’ve been continuously fascinated and totally engaged by Simon’s interviews. Most recently I listened to the ep with George Monbiot. ALL the synapses were firing for me on that one. I promptly bought his book, Regenesis, to get more where that came from. Thank you, Simon, for the work you do to share the insight your brilliant guests with the world. I’ve learned so much.
7. Brilliant guest with vital information for the world! - I really enjoy most all of The Proof podcasts, and this is one of my favorite so far. George Monbiot has a lovely way of taking complex ideas and presenting them in easily digestible chunks of data and narrative while using common language to explain their importance. Simon Hill does a fantastic job of leading the discussion, asking poignant questions, and letting his guests fully explore their topics. When it ended, I was surprised it had already been over an hour. Well done!!
8. THE best science based health podcast I’ve found. - Just started listening a few months ago. I feel like I’m earning some sort of health certificate of knowledge after listing to multiple episodes on this podcast - obviously great host in Simon. His guests are incredibly smart and I appreciate that although he’s vegan, he welcomes all science based information without bias. It’s all about the science. The podcasts are long (and worth it) - he has an awesome breakdown of the conversation in the show notes if you’re short on time and want to skip to a certain topic. A show

1. Vinnie is a truth sayer - I’ve been listening to Vinnie now for years. He tells the truth, is entertaining, and thoughtful. He’s a long haul guy, meaning a little does of his show won’t do. Check out the next and the next. I’ve been changed by his philosophy and will stick by him for year to come. Thanks Vinnie. Stay motivated. Ross. New Mexico
2. All over the place but still good - Love Vinny, love Anna, love their products, love their commitment to help others. Only thing is most of the show is all over the place and goes in the weeds really quick (for me at least). Don’t get me wrong, I always listen and skip past the fluff when needed. Anna does the best she can to keep him on track, and we all appreciate it Please take this is good feedback, not a jab. Truly appreciate all you guys do!!
3. miles and first steps…Listen to Vinnie & Co!!! - From Glenn Beck to Mike Rowe to Vinnie T…then Intro to NSNG….Fat Fat …Beyond Impossible….Twitter and Facebook….Super Fan…eggs and bacon in the frying pan…First Batch of Nut Butter (only waited months…but like you always say Hang in There ) What a ride! my yr old son and I have been on the straight and narrow with y’all for about six weeks. off and falling… notches off my belt loop doesn’t lie. He is also down on pants size. He had a tiny piece of bday cake last weekend and said he did not eat until the next evening and it “felt weird” to eat the cake Thanks to everyone involved! As the youngest of coming from a family of heart attack, stroke, diabetes type , hypertension, and some cancers, I am constantly seeking the way as I watch my older siblings age. Thanks Again -Steve
4. Love this show - My husband and I heard about Vinnie on Mike Rowe’s podcast. We were immediately intrigued so we watched his documentaries. Read the PDF and then did a little more research. We started our NSNG life style change the day after Easter and so far we’re both feeling so much better and my husband has lost over lbs and I have lost over . We ride dirt bikes and both being in our early s we thought the pain from broken bones was just something we had to live with not knowing we were inflicting that pain through our diet. We are so grateful for the education on food and how our body turns it to fuel/reacts to it and wished we would’ve received this information years ago. When Covid happened I put on what I called the “telework ” but that is all behind us. Loving this new life and I know this is something we will continue. Thank you Vinnie and the crew.
5. NSNG Works! lbs down EASY if “no excuses” approach - This PodCast entertains & informs to help keep you on the NoSugarNoGrains /NSNG track. If you aren’t offended by this insight of “TRUTH” the why Vinnie does this FOR FREE… this is a podcast for you! The backstory in Vinnie’s book & documentaries will give you much insight to health & fitness & what we’ve been told (lied to?) by many others with conflicting interests to the food industry. Yes he has great products to sell - he doesn’t push you to buy it - GUARANTEED if you do buy it’s % quality WITHOUT compromise to the “industry” & their junk to sell. NSNG is a WayOfLife not a treadmill of fad diets of days gone by. I owe this podcast, his PDF, Docs & his book so much!! I am thankful for my new life found of healthful living, no more aches & pains; without medical prescriptions or OTC drugs in my s, and by not eating junk food or making excuses & a nice side effect of weight lost. Thank you Vinnie, Anna, Andy & the TEAM you have making me a successful NSNG’r for LIFE!
6. Losing weight, finally with Vinnie - After numerous years of long distance exercise, carbo loading, and not losing weight I started taking Vinnie’s advice. I bought his book and videos, struggled with grain and sugar addiction but finally cut out chips, bread and processed food and lost pounds. Still exercising and feeling good. Now if they will just ship my olive oil I’ll be a happy guy.
7. Complete crap - Listened to an episode today. Exceptionally frustrating. Felt like I was listening in to a phone call with a guy who is on the phone with a girl he wants to sleep with, but she simply isn’t into him. This was the Meatloaf death focus episode. Consistently forwarded by seconds, looking for real content. It never happened. If you don’t have content, don’t publish.
8. Vinnie is great! - I’m another that came from the Carolla tie-in. I can listen to him talk about anything. His program works (I bought the book too). The downside are his co-hosts. I’ve kind of got used to Anna, not some much with Gina. I listens to the Podcast with him and Andy today and it got me to write this. I’m sure Andy is a nice, smart person but he brings absolutely nothing to a podcast. He is everything that is wrong today, his “opinions” are blah tedious PC drivel. That is okay for an office job but I don’t listen to podcasts for what I can here anyone say anywhere just so they don’t offend anyone.

1. So much heart. - Love this podcast. I’ve been listening to it from day one and so appreciate Juna and Dr. Eddie’s well-researched and passionate podcast about health. The tone is compassionate, jovial, yet informative. As a therapist I find gems in each episode for me and my patients. Thanks you two!
2. Fine - While I have loved this show in the past I feel that their latest episode on ozempic really failed and missed the mark. As a person with body dysmorphia I really feel that they made this drug seem like something that EVERYONE who struggles with food should take. This was harmful to me and as someone who is not eligible or overweight but still struggles with this, I felt like the doctor and the episode poised this drug as an “easy” way to stay thin. They only mentioned healthy lifestyle in association to this drug briefly and at the end of the episode. Really poor job
3. Awesomeness wrapped in science and fun - I really love the show, I love the science and educational info and of course the charming interactions between Juna and Eddie! BTW people who tend to use Spanish and English on their phones will change Juna to Juan…
Anyway great show on food, nutrition and exercise!
A big MUAH from Miami!
4. What a podcast!!!! - I get so excited when I see a new episode of this podcast has dropped…like SUPER excited! The fact that you take science, combine it with everyday life and situations, and cover all that with humor and grace makes this a win-win-win listen! It has become a great motivator as well. Not only does the information spur me on, but I only let myself listen when I’m being active! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
5. The best podcast on health and nutrition out there! - I love this podcast! I've been listening since day ! Believe me, you will too.
I love how Juan and Eddie discuss anything that has to do with food with both rigorous scientific analysis and humor. I have struggled with weight management since I was (I'm now ) and I can tell you it takes a lot to discuss this without guiltying or shaming, and they both manage to be encouraging and kind every single time. Bravo!
Juna's mention on the Mind Pump programs (and having the creator on the podcast) encouraged me to sign up. And I’m gained so much muscle mass, wow! It’s great. Yeah, I’m still working on food intake but I’m feeling fantastic. Thank you, Juan, Eddie and the team behind the podcast, and congratulationsfor an excellent and oh-so-necessary podcast!

6. So grateful for this podcast! - This podcast came into my life at the perfect time. I’m a woman in my thirties who is getting married later this year, and I’ve been trying to fight off all the pressures to “lose weight for the big day,” and instead focus on nutritious foods and a sustainable workout regime. My family hasn’t always had the best relationship with food and working out, and this podcast is really helping my fiancé and me figure out what’s best for us and our future family. Thank you so much! Love, Melanie
7. Look forward to this show weekly! - I love this podcast. After years of chronic dieting and finally developing an eating disorder(!) over COVID, this podcast was a critical rung on the ladder that helped me climb out of that hole. This show helped me realize I needed professional help. I’ve been without eating disorder behaviors for over years now — and in tough moments, I’d turn on one of these episodes and hear some sanity and joy. Love hearing more great facts and even Eddie’s dad jokes weekly. Thanks so much you guys for the hard work you put into this show.
8. Great perspective - Great, evidence based (and funny!) perspective on food and eating, not preachy, non-judgemental. Also love the other WBUR podcast on exercise -The Magic Pill. I’m a therapist and I recommend both of these podcasts all the time to clients who are figuring out how, why and whether they want to exercise. It’s awesome!!
