Nutrition's My Life Podcast

There was a TickTok trend going around that I participated in and it got me thinking I need to do a podcast episode on this.    The trend was, " What do you think the next silent killer of our generation will be?"    My answer as a Registered Dietitian and health advocate- DIET TRENDS that remove food groups.    Here at Nutrition's My Life you've heard me say all foods fit into a healthy lifestyle and today I'm sharing with you the foods that you DO want to add in more and why. I'm sharing with you what I think about the KETO and Carnivore diet... specifically...

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! I'm sick and tired of hearing doctors tell my patients to fast for 2 days each week or...

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)...

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...

Do you ever look at people on social media and think, "my life is crappy compared to them"  Have you ever felt "less than" because you felt like you couldn't compare to someone else.  Today I'm sharing all the crappy things I've gone through to help you understand that, even a dietitian is not perfect. Even a dietitian who eats well, is not perfect. Even a health professional who has done it all, still has issues.  I had to take some time off of work recently due to complications from surgery due to a new diagnosis I received last year.  Ehlers Danlos Syndrome has...

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 school Spanish - because you've only been trained in English. Of course you're not going to be able to do it all- you haven't learned the basics and it's so outside of what you're currently doing that it's foreign to you. 

 

Meet yourself where you're at. 

 

I frequently tell my patients to bring vegetables with them to work, even if they know they're going to go out to a fast food restaurant. It's hard to change habits- so start small. Start somewhere that's doable. 

 

In this week's episode of the Nutrition's My Life Podcast, I'm helping you to learn how to give yourself grace during this process and to help you meet yourself where you're at, so you're able to be successful long term.
