Ep. 028 Understanding Nutrition for Mental Health

In today’s episode, Gabriel and Heather interview guest, Ryan Munsey. Ryan is a former fitness model and gym owner turned writer, speaker, and bio hacker. He's an optimizer of human performance with a degree in Food Science & Human Nutrition from Clemson University. He is Chief Optimizer for the only open-source supplement company “Natural Stacks” and the host of the “Optimal Performance podcast”.
Most of us have followed or aspired to follow the food pyramid we learned about in grade school. However, this is not the optimal model for nutrition in the 21st century, nor was it ever truly “healthy”. The topics discussed in this episode will inform nutritional health for both yourself and your clients and will include:

  • Knowing how to feed ourselves rather than knowing what to eat

  • Considerations for the consumption of

    1. Proteins
    2. Fats
    3. Carbohydrates


  • Practicing within the scope of our knowledge and training when it comes to nutrition

  1. Consulting and referrals
  2. Certifications: “Eat to Perform” or “Precision Nutrition”
