Episode 728 16m


You can exercise, meditate, sleep, and take all the supplements in the world, but unless you focus on high-quality, nutrient-dense whole foods personalized to your own needs and preferences, you will not achieve health or longevity.

The Pegan Diet is an inclusive, flexible frame that is built on the principles of quality, food as medicine, and personalization. It is designed to be low glycemic (low in starch and sugar), rich in good fats, anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, hormone balancing, energy boosting, and gut healing.
