What makes a quack a quack? w/ Layne Norton & Holly Baxter

Layne Norton & Holly Baxter join us for a discussion about who to listen to in the fitness and nutrition space. Specifically, we talk about the list that was published to Twitter by Kevin Bass of fitness/nutrition figures who are…and aren’t…quacks.

  • What are the hallmarks of someone who isn’t worth listening to?
  • Why do some start out with great, supportable claims and end up supporting ludicrous theories?
  • Why is it so hard for quacks to alter their positions in the face of evidence?
