    Takeaways




    Emotional eating is eating for any reason other than hunger, and it often involves using food as a way to soothe or cope with emotions.



    Finding what works for your body is crucial for successful weight loss and maintenance. It requires self-reflection, experimentation, and paying attention to how different foods and eating patterns make you feel.



    Practical tips for weight loss include facing your emotions instead of using food as a coping mechanism, creating rules and boundaries around food and finding alternate activities or behaviors to replace emotional eating.

    Podcast Transcript



    Cheryl McColgan (00:00.874)Hey everyone, welcome to the Heal Nourish Grow podcast. Today I am joined by Renee Jones and we are going to talk about something that's a very popular topic at the beginning of the year and that is weight loss. Renee has had a very interesting background as you heard in her bio, but now I'm gonna let her share in your own words, Renee. How did you get into this work and kind of, but maybe start with the background. I think you said for 40 years, you were kind of just like yo-yoing around. So I'm really curious to hear about your backstory, like what sort of things you tried, what were your challenges. So I'll let you take it away with your introduction to your history there.



    Renee Jones (00:37.652)Okay, well, thanks for having me for a start. But my first diet was when I was 10, and I know that sounds awful, but my mother thought, you're a bit young, but if we start now, maybe you'll learn how to do this. And the problem was, I didn't know what I was doing. She'd been heavy all her life, so she didn't know what she was doing.



    Cheryl McColgan (00:49.902)I'm sorry.



    Renee Jones (01:02.192)And we sort of would start and stop and then we'd say, oh, do you want to do the diet again? Yeah, okay. And we'd start over again. And it would go for a while until we either got fed up or went somewhere, you know, either visiting family or holiday or something like that. And it, you know, it just went on. I didn't learn how to first believe that I could keep the weight off that I lost.



    but also what was really good for my body. It was usually sort of a whatever the diet of the day was. So I think we tried them all, honestly. I think there are two diets I have not tried. And one of them was that HCG thing. And the other is the Whole30.



    Cheryl McColgan (01:50.499)Mm-hmm.



    Renee Jones (01:55.636)Because I've done something close enough to that. I thought, got the idea. I'm good. But that just went on.



    Cheryl McColgan (01:55.992)Yes.



    Cheryl McColgan (02:00.114)Right. So out of those ones, and so out of those ones that you tried, you never really found, I mean,

    Episode Transcript



    Cheryl McColgan (00:01.288)Hey everyone, welcome back to the Heal Nourish Grow podcast. Today I have Dr. Michael Biamonte with me, and we are going to chat about a variety of topics. One that is kind of interesting and unusual that he said they just started learning about recently. Anyway, before we get to that, I would love it if you could just tell everyone in your own words a little bit about yourself and how did you get into this whole topic of nutrition.



    drbiamonte (00:28.554)Well, let's see, I'm a clinical nutritionist. I'm a naturopath. I'm certified in New York State, which is where that's where my license is. And I got into nutrition because I was very curious as to why medical doctors poo-pooed it.



    I had a relative who had cancer, who was ill, and I kept asking the doctors, well, what about vitamins and what about, this is back in the 70s, I said, what about Leutriol that I've heard about from Mexico? And they said, no, well, that's all baloney. None of that works. None of that's good. But I said, but couldn't, wouldn't giving him vitamins help his body even if it doesn't cure the cancer? Wouldn't it still help him be healthier to try to?



    fight the cancer a little longer and maybe live longer and they just poo-hooed it. And around that time I started running marathons. So there was a great interest around, and this is again in the 70s. So this is all these things were in their infancy back then. Billy Rogers was first winning the New York Marathon. Carlton Frederick's was on the radio talking about vitamins and talking about the dangers of too much sugar. Adele Davis had her book out. So.



    this was all kind of new. And I wanted to know why these doctors were so adamant that all this stuff was a waste of time. So the more I started studying it, the more I started to tweak on the fact that, gee, you know, if all this nutrition stuff actually works the way they say it does, I could see this being a problem for doctors and drug companies. I could see where they wouldn't want this to be around. And…



    Cheryl McColgan (02:11.584)Yeah, that's some conspiracy thing you're throwing out there a little bit, right?



    drbiamonte (02:15.79)Yeah, well, it's common sense though, in a way. I mean, it looked like with Candida, people are constantly asking me, why is it that medical doctors don't recognize Candida?

If you could just start by telling people.



    How in the world you got into this because it was kind of a sad story the way that it started out.



    Dane Johnson (00:35.493)Yes, it was. And Cheryl, thank you so much for having me and bringing me on and sharing this story and what we do with your community. And everyone out there who's listening, who might be dealing with chronic gut health issues, IBD, I dedicate this talk to you. This talk is for you. And I hope we can get some life-changing results and get some big aha moments today. And so yeah, it was a very sad story for me. And some of the reasons I'm so passionate about this and I'm here today is because I was diagnosed with



    ulcerative colitis, then Crohn's, then ulcerative colitis. The doctors couldn't make up their mind. I got my first symptoms at 19 years old. It nearly killed me on my 27th birthday. So I turned my birthday's November 24th. So December 11th, 2014, I nearly passed away in the hospital two weeks after my birthday. I was in the hospital for a month or six weeks straight at that time. I suffered for a lot of my 20s and I…



    You know, I would drop down to 120 pounds from 185. I, you know, had 25 bloody bad mood today, extreme cystic acne. I'd been on all the medications the doctors told me to. I never wanted this. My parents didn't know what to do with this. I never dealt with any major health issues. My family never dealt with any Crohn's, colitis or IBD growing up. We didn't know anything about chronic disease. And, you know, it just hit me like a ton of bricks and we didn't know what to do about it.

    Episode Transcript



    Cheryl McColgan (00:00.564)Hey everyone, welcome back to the Heel Nourish Grow podcast. I am back today with somebody that I just thoroughly enjoy, Chris Vergevues on episode, I think it was 45. I looked it up and I didn't retain it for some reason. But anyway, he's here again with us today. And my gosh, we've been talking about all things geek prior to this and he has such a great new geeky project that I can't wait to share with you. So Chris, before we get started with all the wonderful new stuff you've got going on.



    I thought it would be great to just briefly give your background. Obviously I've read your bio, but touch on this element that you described that is so awesome for longevity and great for mitochondrial health that we discussed in the first podcast. Maybe just like a little recap for people. Definitely go back and listen to the whole episode, but that way they'll kind of get where you're coming from and then why you are now doing the cool summit that you're doing. So anyway, that was a very long introduction, but thanks for being here, Chris.



    Chris Burres (00:55.889)Yeah, no, I like it. Cheryl, thank you so much for having me back. I'm excited. In some regard, it's not surprising, not because of me, but because of the stuff that has been accomplished, which in a real way doesn't feel like it's because of me. It is, but you know how you just, you wake up on it. I'll describe it this way, right? So let's go back. We'll talk about the molecule, right? And I'm holding up a molecule or a model of a molecule, obviously.



    And if you're listening, just imagine a soccer ball where the lines on the soccer ball represent the bonds between the carbon atoms. So it's a spherical molecule of 60 carbon atoms. I've been manufacturing that it's a carbon nanomaterial. I've been a happy -go -lucky carbon nanomaterial scientist since 1991. That molecule was actually discovered in 85. The scientists who discovered it won the Nobel Prize for that discovery in 96. So short 11 years from discovery to being awarded the Nobel Prize.
