I was pleasantly surprised at the take aways from this episode. The most important one to me is not to judge people for their bodies, but also that one of the most important changes that come with a diet is just a shift in mentality with how you look at food and your own eating habits.
I've never heard of Blue Holes before, and even though I'm not typically into the science-y type podcasts I did actually enjoy this episode this morning! Stuff You Should Know is always a great podcast to listen to if you just want to zone out and forget about reality for a moment.
Josh said it’s the best episode of SYSK and I agree lol it blew my mind and I ended up re-listening to the episode a couple of times.
