#025 – Popular Diets | What You Eat Don’t Make Me Sh*t

 In this Episode, Serina and Jeremy discuss popular diets! Beginning with the history of how we got to the Standard American Diet, then move into popular diets such as Paleo, Keto, Vegetarian/Vegan, Carnivore diet, weight watchers, and little bit on intermittent fasting. There is no one-size-diet-fits-all! And there is no one-size-diet-fits-you for all time, either. Flexibility and adaptability are the best! There is NO SUCH THING as a “BAD FOOD”! – Food is food. It is not good or bad – you are not good or bad when you eat food. 🙂
