Nutrition & Fitness Expert, and author of Eat Meat And Stop Jogging, shares new insights for a better body and a healthier life
Mike Sheridan has been advising on nutrition and fitness for nearly a decade. He developed an obsession for research early in his career as he noticed the immense gap between the scientific evidence and the message to the public. This motivated him to launch his first book, Eat Meat And Stop Jogging, which uncovers the flaws in the prevailing advice to get fit.

His success is due in large part to his philosophy that ‘Transformation Starts With Education;’ not just showing his clients what to do, but teaching them why.
