Sam Miller joins me to talk about a nutritional approach that is NOT based on a believe system, or macros, or specific diets. Instead, this insightful conversation is about an individualised and adaptable, demand-based framework of nutrition.
Sam has spent the last 14 years sharing his quest for health, fitness, and nutrition knowledge with the world. Sam is an online coach, educator, and mentor, dedicated to providing simple, yet strategic ways to amplify your results wither with your clients or for yourself.
