Bold Moves Podcast Episode 9er: Elle Russ!

Happy Monday! You know what that means! It’s time for Bold Moves Podcast Episode 9er: Elle Russ!

Why You Should Eat More Fat! Fat’s Not The Enemy!

One of the biggest myths that drives me crazy is that the Paleo diet/Primal meal plan is a high protein diet, or that all you eat is meat.

2. To decrease sugar intake.
