This interview with my friend Leanne Babcock proved to me how little I know about nutrition. I have been following Leanne’s great work with athletes and how she helps people transform their bodies in just a few months and even win medals in local fitness competitions. Nutrition and diet is as important if not important than your exercise plan. Here is my interview with her. For more information contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
What are some of the common mistakes you see people make with their diet for weight loss?
