Nutrition's My Life Podcast

Have you experienced this?   You start a new diet and feel like you have to be perfect with everything. You typically eat out and so think you have to grocery shop for all your meals for the entire week but then end up wasting so much food.  Then you get frustrated at yourself and feel like you're failing, so you end up overeating or binging on something that in the moment makes you feel better but then you feel even lower than you did before..   Think of it like this... you're trying to do college level Spanish but you're really needing to start out at elementary or middle...

Nutrition's My Life Podcast

Weight stigmas    According to many health professionals (ahmmm doctors!) If you're in a bigger body- all your health problems are because of your weight.  If you're in a bigger body- you must be gorging yourself with food all day long.  If you're in a thin body- you are either underweight and need to gain or you can't have certain health conditions because you're in a small body and those health conditions only happen in bigger bodies.      As a dietitian I'm sick of it!

Nutrition's My Life Podcast

When trying to lose weight, building muscle mass, or generally trying to be healthier... all you hear is PROTEIN PROTEIN PROTEIN.  Butttttt How much protein should we be eating each day?   If you talk to a personal trainer or an avid gym goer, you might think 1g/pound of body weight. Well the recommended daily allowance or RDA for most adults is 0.8g/kg of body weight.  To get your weight into kilograms/kg you need to divide weight in pounds by 2.2. This could look like a 180lb individual divided by 2.2 = ~82kg.  This could be either 180g of protein to try to eat (wowzas)...

Nutrition's My Life Podcast

The topic of carbs (carbohydrates) have been in the conversation of half my patients lately and it was time for me to help you out again with understanding carbs and why we need them..   Are you on a weight loss journey? > you need carbs for T4 to T3 conversion (T3 is the active thyroid hormone and without adequate carbs, your best chance of having a metabolism you want is taken away from you as the body does not want to convert T4 to T3 when there are not enough carbs present) Constantly exhausted? > you may be only filling up your gas tank a quarter of the way and expecting your...

I've been a dietitian for a while- 15 years to be exact but I've been a health warrior a lot longer than that. 

On today's episode I wanted to share with you 10 nutrition hacks I wish I would have known earlier, so I could have improved my health and stress/anxiety around the foods I ate a lot faster. 

Today's top 10 nutrition hacks are: 

  1. Certain foods need to be paired together and some don't...
  2. Pair all carbs with a protein and/or fat
  3. I can eat sweet and don't need to find a low calorie sweetner or "healthier" flour
  4. Oils aren't bad for your health like people may make it out to be
  5. Nuts and seeds are actually really helpful for our health- way more than most people think!
  6. Calorie intake isn't everything
  7. Herbs are more powerful for health than most people think and aren't just to be the aromatics for our foods to give it flavor. 
  8. I don't need to follow a recipe to a T
  9. Flaxseed is the bomb (lol)
  10. Antioxidants need more credit
