PTP490 - Colin Zhu Nutrition Month
In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Dr. Colin. Zhu about how thriving is more than just National Nutrition Month. We learn more about Dr. Colin as a person before diving into National Nutrition Month. Traditionally, this month is dedicated to promoting awareness of the importance of making informed food choices and developing healthy eating habits. But in our conversation we dive into how there are so many more pillars than diet for overall well-being. The broader picture is really the reason many of his clients come to him for help in the first place as well as how they go from surviving to thriving. Stay tuned to the end to hear how you can get a signed copy of his book and other helpful goodies for free!
