There’s hot —and then there’s absolutely on fire. And tiny powerhouse Rachel Pojednic…..is up in flames. This week Kara chats with scientist, professor, fitness instructor, sponsored athlete and @strongprocess founder Rachele Pojednic.

This episode is BY FAR the most information packed, controversial, and REAL conversation we’ve had so far. Rachele drops knowledge bomb after knowledge bomb and debunks SEVERAL popular nutrition fads that the wellness industry is currently obsessing over (we’re looking at you, activated charcoal + collagen.)
