    Nourishment Beyond Numbers - The Calorie Myth

    Nourishment Beyond Numbers - The Calorie Myth

    Calories have long been the tyrants of the diet world, but it's time to overthrow their rule and expose the truth!! This week's episode strips away the calorie's crown as I  reveal why this outdated method of measurement doesn't fit our current understanding of nutrition and health. Welcome in a mindset where we honour the unique interplay of our gut health, metabolism, and hormones. It's not just about the number of calories in a banana versus a glass of wine; it's about the substance of what we consume and how it fuels our individual bodies.

    Tune in as I share my personal journey through the calorie counting BS and why I now focus on the quality of my meals rather than the calorie count. This will help explain why I'm passionate about personalised nutrition which is aligned with your body's biochemistry and is tailored to your body's specific needs, leading to more effective health outcomes. It's not just a podcast episode; it's an invitation to transform your relationship with food and embrace a holistic approach to well-being that celebrates the complex beauty of our bodies. 

    Join the conversation and the community that's tearing down calorie counts and building up a new paradigm of personalised health.

    The Weight Loss Blocker You Never Knew Existed

    The Weight Loss Blocker You Never Knew Existed

    Ever felt like your body is working against you when it comes to maintaining a health weight, especially during those perimenopausal years?  You're not alone, and the culprit is probably low level inflammation in your body. In this latest episode, I unravel the complexities of inflammation's role in women's health, discussing why it's more than just a response to injury, but a persistent obstacle to weight loss and an instigator of other health issues. Oestrogen's anti-inflammatory effects are especially critical as the levels drop during perimenopause. But don't despair—I've got tangible strategies to help manage inflammation, and I'm excited to share them with you.

    There are SO many modern-life factors that amplify inflammation! I look at the foods we eat, the air we breathe, and the lives we lead. It turns out, organic isn't just a buzzword; it's a line of defense. We'll navigate the environmental and lifestyle influences that contribute to inflammation and how you can counteract them with easy choices. Together, we discuss the hidden inflammatory agents lurking in many diets and how to steer clear of them, the importance of vitamin D, and why gut health is a game-changer.  And for that cherry on top, join me, Susie, on Instagram @susiegardenwellness for more age-defying tips that will have you feeling ageless and awesome, no matter what stage of life you're in.

    How Gut Health Influences Weight Loss - Part 2

    How Gut Health Influences Weight Loss - Part 2

    Let's continue our exploration into the crucial world of gut health and the microbiome, picking up from our lively January 23rd discussion. Listen in as I unpack the profound impact of our gut health on weight loss, inflammation, and overall vitality, emphasising the need to foster a flourishing microbiome through mindful dietary and stress management choices. I'm diving deep on the incredible benefits of fermentable fibre, how it feeds our beneficial gut bacteria, and its essential role on our whole body health (including healthy weight). This conversation is your comprehensive guide to supporting your gut health with intentional eating and lifestyle habits for an energised and balanced life.

    Tune in as I detail the distinct roles of different types of dietary fibre on our digestive health and how fibre, found in everyday foods like apples and oats, can help lower cholesterol and combat constipation. I also highlight the critical importance of readily fermentable fibre for a diverse and healthy gut microbiome, which in turn safeguards against increased intestinal permeability or leaky gut. It's not just about what we eat, but how our bodies harness these nutrients for overall well-being. Don't miss out on these insights and more, as we navigate the connection between fibre and a vibrant, healthful life.
