Interesting, encouraging, and fun to listen to!!

I am a huge fan of this podcast! And that’s saying something, because I only have two podcasts that I have never gotten tired of! 😆 I really have loved hearing the insights—both of Zach and those he’s interviewed! Nutrition is an area that I struggle in…(cookies and warm, gooey carbs are my hardest to resist!) So it’s been super supportive for me to have encouragement and reminders that having good health doesn’t mean we have to hold ourselves to perfection. Health is more about consistent effort and gradual change. Plus, it’s nice that there’s always some funny bits in each podcast, so it’s not some boring, discouraging lecture on eating! 😆 He also has a comfortable, nautical way of talking and interviewing, so it’s enjoyable to listen to!! When Zach compared making simple, healthy choices to the children of Israel being willing to look at the brass serpent in the wilderness, it was a major truth bomb/eye-opener for me! The simple steps really work, and I really do know all the things I need to do to eat better! I just need to DO them. So this was such a good reminder for me. Thank you Zach, for talking about this area where so many of us struggle, and helping us to see that we really DON’T need super strict diets that cut out whole food groups! Moderation, consistency, and little steps at a time go a long way!!

Food & Faith

I love this podcast! More often than not, we hear an immense amount of false nutrition information through the mainstream media - Zach is a breath of fresh air! His ability to tie the concepts of faith to a healthy lifestyle is effortless and so personable. This is a great podcast to listen to not only for faith and nutrition advice but for guidance in creating a life full of positive habits and perpetual growth.

Eye Opening Podcast

I must say, I didn’t think this would be a podcast geared toward me but I appreciate how Zach shares a variety of insights on health based on his beliefs. I am not a member of the Latter Day Saint community and I still take away a variety of different ways to think about things personally and professionally.

Zach shows funny no nonsense can coexist

I love listening to Zach! First of all after listening I want to start talking with a southern accent! Nutrition sounds WAY more fun in “southern”. But mostly I really like his ability to cut through the pseudo science crud that is so prevalent in our world today. I have often felt that the only source of 100% truth out there, is what is contained in the scriptures. I can read a blog about how coconut oil can cure any sort of issue you have, and they use all sorts of technical jargon that I begin to believe it. Zach, I know, does not subscribe to “online science”aka untested and un-researched science that can make anything look like it’s absolute truth. What he gives here is plain and simple. No quick fixes or “miracles”. He is much needed among us members of Christ’s Church (especially women) to love our bodies and treat them well. Thanks Zach!

Down to Earth

The thing with listening to someone talk about diet, nutrition, and health is that many people are dead set in the idea that their way is the only way. This pod cast is real and full of information for a lifestyle that fits YOU. It’s funny at times, and perfect to listen to when doing other tasks. It will keep you thinking and motivated to make small changes in your life that will improve your overall health. Thanks Zack

Food + faith = a healthy perspective!

I've been loving this! I love that Zach combines food and faith and talks about things in a healthy way - not a fad diet way. He gives concrete ideas of how to improve health and develop a healthy relationship with food. I also really love his perspective as a religious nutritionist. There are so many gospel tie-ins to our bodies and health that I'd never thought about before this podcast. Two thumbs up!

This guy knows his stuff

I like listening to this podcast. It helps me change my perspective on the way I was trained to view health and food from growing up. And it does it in a way that ties it back to how God would want me to view myself. He is relatable and fun to listen to. Even though he’s the Mormon nutritionist, his concepts can relate to a lot of different religious perspectives from Christianity.

Awesome podcast

Great real life information that’s humorous and engaging. It’s nice that you get the reality of nutrition along with being able to strengthen your testimony. It makes you realize God is aware of your nutrition and insecurities around food. And the way it’s presented, it’s not overwhelming, intimidating or make it seem like it’s super expensive to be healthy.

Seriously genius

As a podcast virgin I am psyched about the Mormon nutritionist! Zach explains healthy living in a easy to follow and upbeat way that makes you excited to understand and take control of your health! He is positive and responsive when you reach out with questions. Excited for future episodes 🙌
