Dr. C: I’m here with Tom Malterre. Seriously, he is one of my favorite people in this health space and also, just in general. Tom is such a cool guy. I get to spend a lot of time hanging out with the world’s best health experts, and here is one of the brightest ones I ever get to talk to. So much of what happens in health, nutrition and fitness are like fads and trends, and Tom does not follow those. He reads things firsthand and draws incredibly insightful conclusions. He lives this stuff to a perfect tee. He has a new book coming out, which I am real excited about. I had a chance to look over it a bit. I wanted to have him on to just talk about some of the concepts in the book. Welcome, Tom.
Tom: Thanks, Alan. I have to say the feeling is mutual, my friend. I really enjoy the depth and breadth you go into, looking at the scientific data, but, then, also listening to your clients. The reality is science can direct us in so many different ways. Until we can actually see those scientific principles alive in front of us in case studies, and we can prove if they are either correct or incorrect — because you and I have both seen trends in our clients before they ever appear in the research. I have to commend you for all your hard work, my friend. I have been inspired by you many, many times.
