Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. However, emerging science is showing that we may need to look deeper into what is driving this! That is where my friend, Jonny Bowden comes in. Jonny is a board-certified nutritionist, author of 15 books, and even finds time to lecture around the world. Jonny and I discuss health-related topics such as cholesterol, insulin resistance, strengthening our immune system and even the best dietary habits to instill today. Join us as we dive into the latest studies and clinical findings for effectively preventing and managing heart disease by focusing on diet, exercise, supplements, sleep and stress management.

JONNY BOWDEN, PHD, CNS, is a board-certified nutritionist, the author of 15 books including The Great Cholesterol Myth, The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth, and Living Low Carb, and the creator of the best-selling internet weight loss program, Metabolic Factor.  His no-nonsense, myth-busting approach has made him a popular guest on television (Dr. Oz, the Doctors, ABC-TV, MSNBC-TV, CNN, CBS-TV, CBN, Fox News, NBC-TV and virtually every morning show in America), and a popular speaker all over the world (he’s spoken at venues from Beijing University in China to Paleo f(x) in Texas.
