Our Editor's Take

There are many different diets, food trends, and wellness plans. It can seem impossible to understand the right way to eat to be healthy. The Maintenance Phase podcast helps listeners get informed about all things food and nutrition.

This podcast is an excellent source to learn the dangers and misinformation surrounding the diet and food industry. Each episode discusses nutrition-related topics like healthy meal plans and safe ways to lose weight. This podcast examines popular diets, myths about protein, and calorie counting.

The Maintenance Phase podcast dives into the science behind popular food fads and strips away the hype. Informative, well researched, and educational, it is a great listen. Whether it is the latest trend or a longstanding diet hack, the science behind what we eat gets put to the test. Hosts Aubrey Gordon and Michael Hobbs discuss everything from The Biggest Loser to the fall of SnackWell's cookies.

This podcast is great for food lovers or those looking to get healthy. Whether listeners have a science background or an interest in nutrition or not, this is an informative show. It walks listeners through the facts without overwhelming them and breaks things down with ease. So much of the food industry relies on sponsors, money, and politics to the point that facts become secondary considerations. This podcast gets audiences to consider what drives food choices.
