To us, Ian represents a voice of reason in the world of nutrition, a realm that can be confusingly contradictory. So during his visit to our SF studio this summer, we invited Ian to help us reset with a few pieces of advice that everyone can follow — and a peek into what he actually eats on a daily basis. The basics have remained the same. So my biggest piece of advice would be to get the basics right. Obviously the advice is for a wider population and, as such, is based on research that studies large groups over extended periods of time. You can invest a lot of money in unnecessary supplements and foods, or you could invest a fraction of that money on a session with a degree-qualified nutritionist who could get you off to a better start with the basics.
