Nutrition Musts: Research Digest

With nutrition the constant hot topic, and everyone (and their mom) proclaiming themselves a "nutrition expert/guru/savant/messiah" it's hard to know who to trust and what to believe. Is meat bad for you? Will artificial flavors,dyes and preservatives kill me? I want the Omega-3s in salmon, but what's a sustainable fishing method? and do I have to worry about mercury? WHAT THE HELL SHOULD I EAT??
Research comes out, media hype ensues, truth gets lost. Wash, rinse, repeat.
As a nutrition nerd I love reading full length peer-reviewed studies and picking apart the research methodologies. But it's not quick, it's not easy and it definitely isn't for everyone.

That's why I am every so thankful for This powerhouse team of PhDs compiles the latest research on nutrition and fitness and gives you an unbiased answer to whether or not you should take/eat/enjoy a multitude of foods, supplements and fitness routines.

Just when I thought their product (which is almost all available online for FREE) could get any better, they outdid themselves. The Research Digest - ERD is a game changer in the best sense of the word.

What is ERD exactly? It's a monthly digest which helps you easily digest new and relevant research. Each month ERD scours over 8 recent nutrition and supplement studies, breaks them down and delivers them to you in an easy to follow format

DOES IT GET BETTER? YES IT DOES! For the next few days, membership to ERD will be available at a special 20% off introductory sale. By subscribing to ERD you get:.
  • 8 in-depth reviews on the latest nutrition research
  • An op-ed (a fantastic piece of Dr. Yoni Freedhoff for the first issue)
  • A monthly Q&A with a nutrition or fitness researcher

So if you love nutrition, fitness and/or research, care about facts, and are short on time (or just want to hear another opinion) ERD is a must. Check it out and let me know in the comments what you think!
