Angie (right) with her sister

I recently had my fourth InsideTracker blood test and it yielded some interesting results.

I first heard about InsideTracker back in 2016 and have been so impressed by how the experts there are able to turn information about your bloodwork numbers and lifestyle into actionable ways to see improvements.

I generally consider myself a very healthy person but through the years my iron and ferritin levels have been low.

I always feel motivated when listening to your podcast! Your enthusiasm, humor, education, and podcast topics helped me get back into running after my first AND second baby! “I can do hard things!” I find that I am more than 1 minute per mile slower post babies, which is hard to accept as I like competing with myself! I wonder if it’s due to my change in nutrition, or sleep, or both?! I would love to learn about quick, practical snacks for a full scheduled, working mom of two, trying to get back to quick paced running, please! I appreciate your knowledge, inspiration, and time. Sincerely, Berenise Lemus Balguma
