Since starting medical school and becoming a personal trainer, he's learned that the textbooks on nutrition that our future doctors and health authorities read are based on that same faulty or nonexistent evidence. Kris' goal is change that! For more from Kris- Subscribe to Free Updates from his website or click the links above to follow him on Facebook or Twitter.
