RRP#28: Andy Bellatti MS, RD: The Rich Roll Podcast

Play

Today on the show I welcome nutritionist and dietitian Andy Bellatti MS, RD.  Sure we talk plant-based and other issues related to optimal nutrition (hint: eat REAL FOOD!).  

But what makes Andy unique amongst his peers isn’t so much his pro-plant bias as it is his passion for calling out the inextricable link between giant food corporations and how we innately come to think and feel about the foods we (often unconsciously choose to) eat.  

From congressional legislation to school lunch policy, the food pyramid and what we are actually led to believe we need to live and thrive is in more ways than you would imagine completely dictated by these corporations, their lobbying efforts and Madison Avenue advertising agencies.  What makes Andy different is his courage to take a stand on this issue and his tireless push for positive changes, both systemic and individual.

Enjoy!

    What a fantastic interview! I really enjoyed listening to Andy and found it all so interesting. The more I learn about nutrition and nutrition policies, the more I realize I don’t know. Thanks Rich and Andy for all you do. We need more people like you!
