    EP 165 - What Is "Normal" Eating? Why Eating Competently Leads to Lasting Weight Loss ...

    Forget the dos and don’ts of healthy eating and instead choose to eat competently.So often, weight loss diets focus solely on the foods you should or shouldn’t eat. But, according to dietitian and family therapist Ellyn Satter, positive eating habits have more to do with eating attitudes and behaviors than the foods you choose. Satter emphasizes that people should enjoy what they’re eating and focus on food competence. Food competence comes down to feeding yourself faithfully and giving yourself permission to eat. People who eat competently tend to weigh less and have a more stable weight than those who don’t.  Three of the primary elements of eating competently are:  Creating a structure around your eating habits. Creating an experience around eating. Trusting yourself to get interested in new foods. Listen as Ellyn Satter joins Dr. Taz to discuss competent eating.

    EP 161 - Is Histamine Making You Sick?

    EP 161 - Is Histamine Making You Sick?

    Experiencing cramps, digestive issues, or flushed skin after eating? Histamine might be the culprit.Determining the cause of digestive and gut health issues can be complex. Though many know of disorders like leaky gut, GERD, and IBS, a lesser known gut disruptor is histamine intolerance.  Histamine is a compound released by immune cells and is very important to the immune system and estrogen production. However, having too much histamine can cause digestive cramps, loose stools, urgent bowel movements, and flushing skin or hives. An increase in patients with histamine intolerance and similar gut issues is caused by a number of factors: Today, people aren’t eating enough vegetables or enough variety of vegetables.  People are eating too much processed food that’s high in sugar and low in fiber. Humans no longer ferment foods regularly, which used to be a regular practice in the winter. Everyone is exposed to medications, and there is more self-prescribing and self-diagnosing than ever before.  More toxic substances are present in everyday household items like makeup and cleaning supplies. Americans are generally undernourished because diets lack the proper vitamins and minerals. Fortunately, histamine intolerance can be managed with a low-histamine diet.  Listen as Nour Zibdeh joins Dr. Taz to discuss histamine intolerance.
