  1. Educating clients about nutrition makes the assumption that knowing leads to doing. Imagine a nutritionist seeking to provide strength training education without a trainer's ongoing engagement. The point I am making is that, just as ongoing exercise coaching leads to superior results, so does ongoing dietary coaching. This is my opinion based upon our thousands of our "weight loss members" who are monitored and coached via 1on1 weekly 15 min sessions, for a minimum of 52 weeks, either in person or via Zoom. I recognise that "information wants to be free". However, congratulations in being able to get one of the clearest dietary and strength thinkers in the world on your podcast. He offers a rare combination. His book is ground breaking. This is a fantastic episode. Thanks so much Lawrence. Looking forward to the next episode.
