Dr. Hyman and I at the book launch party for The Urban Monk

If you follow the current trends in health, wellness, and diet, you probably also follow today’s guest on The School of Greatness.

Dr. Mark Hyman is that popular in the health scene and for good reason.

Not only has he written over 9 bestselling books on these topics, but he is the director of the Cleveland Clinic (a huge front runner in functional medicine).

Aside from those amazing credentials, Dr. Hyman is passionate about speaking up for how important our diets are in our overall health.

Since I’m always trying to dial in my fitness and health, I had a bunch of questions for him.

What I especially loved learning from him was how easy it is to be on top of your diet.

I am so glad I get to bring you this awesome interview with Dr. Mark Hyman in Episode 293 about how to understand what’s actually going on with our bodies and food.
