Transformational Nutrition: Why Food Isn’t the Only Source of Nourishment – #433
By: Dave Asprey
Why you should listen –
Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia, celebrity nutritionist and best-selling author, believes there is way more to nourishment than just the foods you eat. Your life’s true purpose, your spirit, and your emotions are also factors that fuel you, which is the basis of her revolutionary approach. Founder and director of The Institute of Transformational Nutrition, author of “The Hungry Hottie Cookbook” and “PINK Method,” and lead nutritionist on “Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian,” Cynthia has developed a unique, personalized nutrition coaching system. In this fascinating, in-depth conversation with Dave, Cynthia explains the development of this new science of personalized health, how trauma impacts all of us, and how our emotions drive the decisions we make – about nutrition, and about life. From the childhood experiences that shaped her path, to the main tenants of transformational nutrition, to the importance of education and making connections, Cynthia shares how she helps people discover what they’re really hungry for, so they can finally make peace with food – and themselves.
