What if I were to tell you that there was a 3,100 mile foot race.

If there's one thing I've learned over the past few months of working with Giacomo and Dani on the new Plant-Based Body Transformation program, it's this:
To gain muscle and burn fat, workouts and strength training are just a small piece of the puzzle.
The much larger -- and often overlooked -- piece is nutrition. Or more specifically, how to manage macronutrients for your specific body type and goals.
See, Giacomo Marchese and Dani Taylor know this well. They're 15-plus-year vegans, champion bodybuilders, and they’ve literally helped thousands of clients transform their bodies by building muscle and shedding fat on a plant-based diet.
And today, we brought them on the podcast to talk about doing just that.

You've probably seen the recent headlines like, "No Amount of Alcohol is Safe" or "Why Any Levels of Alcohol is Bad for You."

In today's episode we take a look at the recent studies, and examine what they mean for our health (and our drinking habits).
Sometimes, no matter how much you want a habit to work, it just doesn't. You can't get it to stick.
