#04 - Matt Ruscigno - Is a plant based diet the best way to eat?
In this episode I talk with Registered Dietitian, vegan and endurance athlete Matt Ruscigno about the health benefits of a plant based diet. Matt gives me insight on how to live healthier by eating a plant based diet. How it can reverse pre-diabetes and help men live a life of vitality.
Matt Ruscigno is a vegan of 20 years and a leading expert in nutrition. He has a Nutritional Science degree from Pennsylvania State University, a Public Health Nutrition masters degree from Loma Linda University, and certification as a Registered Dietitian- one of the only professional nutrition credentials.

Matt is also a co-founder of Nutrinic.

Their programs are designed to halt—and even reverse—disease progression by combining evidence-backed nutrition with personal guidance, developing their patient’s inherent capacity for lifelong healthy decision-making.
In his spare time, Matt is an accomplished athlete who races marathons, iron-man triathlons, 200+ mile cycling events and 24-hour races.
