Justin lost more than 50 pounds, normalized his blood pressure and feels better in his 30s than he did in his 20s.

In 2014, Justin left a fast-growing technology startup to launch Nutritional Roots with Dr. Pesek and help other people improve their health. Justin is certified in exercise nutrition and permaculture design.
