    Breaking Down the Universal Truth of Health and Fitness with Maryann Walsh, RD

    Breaking Down the Universal Truth of Health and Fitness with Maryann Walsh, RD

    The almost infinite amount of online resources available about health and fitness might be a double-edged sword. On one side, people with no nutrition knowledge can google a FODMAP diet and have a reasonable idea of what foods to avoid and which ones to consume more frequently. 
    At the same time, many people might fall for the dietary dogma of the moment, follow a celebrity's extreme diet, or plan their meals copying a "what I eat during the day" reel on Instagram, just to break their faces against the only universal truth of health and fitness: each wellness journey is unique. 
    This week, we hear about holistic nutrition, weight loss, mental health, and communications from the multifaceted expert Maryann Walsh. Maryann is a Registered Dietitian and Wellness Expert and owner of Walsh Nutrition Consulting. She holds two Bachelor's degrees, one in Dietetics and the other in Biological Sciences and Marketing, a Master's degree in Food and Nutrition, and is getting her doctorate in Psychology.
    Throughout this episode, Maryann shares her thoughts on how the general public access, interprets and uses the massive amount of information about nutrition and wellness they have available. She also discusses time management, mental health, and personal growth and why people shouldn't mindlessly follow nutrition dogmas. 
    Additionally, we expand on the importance of spreading awareness of mental and physical health issues, how she developed a passion for helping people deal with mental health issues, her newest endeavor at a substance abuse recovery clinic, and more.
    Tune in and listen to episode 14 of Cultivating Wellness Media and learn why you should stay away from one-size-fits-all nutrition and dietary solutions. 
    In This Episode, You Will Learn:

We also discuss Whole Health Club's services, like cooking classes and unlimited mental health support. We also touch on why it is so hard to get and stay in shape, Sam's future plans, and much more.

    The Advantages of Personalization in Health and Wellness with Alex Oskian and Brittany Werner

    Although the science behind what makes people lose or gain weight, burn fat, or change body composition is pretty straightforward, nutrition plans' efficiency relies more on personalization than on the accuracy of the recommended intake of micro and macronutrients.

Alex is a Coach and Registered Dietician at WAG, with almost 15 years of experience in nutrition coaching. Brittany is the Director of Coaching at WAG and a Coach and Registered Dietician. In her over 17 years of experience in the field, she helped thousands of people reach their health and wellness goals.  
    Throughout our conversation, you'll hear about Alex and Brittany's experiences helping people accomplish their fitness and health objectives, why they believe personalized meal plans are the answer to weight control, Working Against Gravity's mechanism to pair prospects with the right nutrition coach for them, and more. 
    Tune in and listen to episode 10 of Cultivating Wellness Media and learn more about the extraordinary advantages of personalized and custom-oriented services in the health and wellness industry.
