Thank you to our amazing sponsor HLTH Code
HLTH Code was formulated by a friend of the show, Dr. Ben Bikman. He created this meal-replacement shake called HLTH Code Complete Meal because he literally couldn’t recommend another product for people to take. With its unique formulation and only 4g of carbohydrates per serving, this shake doesn't cause an insulin reaction, making it the perfect and healthy shake on the go.
