    It’s the start of the new year, and as many of us look to make improvements to become the best versions of ourselves, we may also be looking for tools to help us achieve our health goals. Whatever we’re working on in 2023, there’s likely a wellness tracker that can get us there. Ochsner Fitness Center Wellness Manager Trevor Manuel joins me this week to chat about our top picks for wellness trackers – including those that go beyond counting steps and calories – that not only can help inspire and motivate us, but also give us and our care providers a better understanding of our whole-body health.

Beyond Sports Drinks

This episode was much appreciated & right on time for the summer heat wave! Molly gave a splendid overview of electrolytes with examples of drinks & foods that I’ll definitely utilize myself & share with others. We are very lucky to have such a talented & inspiring leader in nutrition, fitness & wellness in Louisiana.

Great Info on Health & Wellness

Thank you providing a great resource for health & wellness. This yogurt episode was great. Fage 5% is a pantry staple in my home. I never purchase sour cream or cream!

fun with photos ,

Well rounded

I am a pediatric occupational therapist and my husband is a cardiac rehab exercise physiologist- we are both very active and conscious of our health decisions. This podcast is fantastic. We listen to every episode. Molly provides just the right balance of interest, practicality and facts. Thank you Molly!
