Episode 6: “Nutritional Heretics” with Michelle Shapiro, RD The Femme Factor Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

Michelle Shapiro is an integrative/ functional Registered Dietitian from NYC who has helped over 1000+ clients reverse their anxiety, resolve long standing gut issues and approach their weight lovingly.

She is the host of the Quiet the Diet Podcast and aims to illuminate natural healing methods for listeners, as well as invite listeners to approach their weight in a body neutral way. She aims to bridge the gap between body positivity and intentional health changes. Michelle believes her clients can truly heal from anxiety and panic attacks using a bottom up approach (starting with the physical body and moving up to the emotional.)

In this episode, we dive deep into anxiety, weight loss, and popular tools like intermittent fasting. We hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we did!
