Judy Cho is a board-certified Holistic Nutritionist and certified Nutritional Therapist who uses a carnivore diet to help people uncover the root cause of their health problems so that they can achieve optimal health.

Judy holds a psychology and communications degree from the University of California, Berkeley and she’s the author of the best-selling book, The Carnivore Cure.

Judy comes on the show to discuss how going on the carnivore diet transformed her health, her parents’ health, and the health of her patients, why that is, what makes carnivore so effective, and who it might be right for.

Judy and Chris Irvin, The Ketologist, also dive into the real problem with statins and what can be done about it, how almond milk production is terrible for the environment, why governing bodies can’t be trusted when it comes to their nutrition advice, and so much more.
