When it comes to nutritional advice and information, there’s a lot of noise on the internet. Read one thing and you may find yourself nodding along, only to be equally convinced when reading a counter argument.
So how do you sort through all that noise?
For starters, you have to get rid of the biases — your bias, the bias of the site, and the bias of the research.
While Examine.com can’t get rid of your own bias, it strives to eliminate the other two, making it one of Matt’s favorite resources for objective information on supplementation and nutrition.
In today’s episode, we chat with Kamal Patel, an editor at Examine.com and nutrition researcher with an MPH and MBA from Johns Hopkins University. He shares his research on which (if any) supplements vegan athletes need, and breaks down many of the most talked about vitamins and minerals.
Here’s what we talk about in this episode:
- How to be unbiased on the internet
- Do vegans need supplements? Don’t assume anything
- Looking at minerals, not vitamins
- Protein supplements and plant-based athletes
- Creatine and your brain
- How to sort through the noise of nutritional research
