NMLP EP 140 : 10 nutrition hacks I wish I would have known earlier
I've been a dietitian for a while- 15 years to be exact but I've been a health warrior a lot longer than that.
On today's episode I wanted to share with you 10 nutrition hacks I wish I would have known earlier, so I could have improved my health and stress/anxiety around the foods I ate a lot faster.
Today's top 10 nutrition hacks are:
Certain foods need to be paired together and some don't... Pair all carbs with a protein and/or fat I can eat sweet and don't need to find a low calorie sweetner or "healthier" flour Oils aren't bad for your health like people may make it out to be Nuts and seeds are actually really helpful for our health- way more than most people think! Calorie intake isn't everything Herbs are more powerful for health than most people think and aren't just to be the aromatics for our foods to give it flavor. I don't need to follow a recipe to a T Flaxseed is the bomb (lol) Antioxidants need more credit

NMLP EP 141 : Slow digestion reasons and digestion improvement hacks (part one)
The poop whisperer is here to help... lol.
I recently shared a video on TikTok that went a little crazy because so many people are struggling with a slow digestion. The movement capability of the digestive tract is called motility and I see many people in my practice with a slow motility. This can cause:
+ more bloating
+ constipation or diarrhea
+ make you not hungry (which then makes it hard for you to meet your nutrient demands)
On this episode of the Nutrition's My Life Podcast, I'm helping you understand where your slow motility could have resulted from and some action steps to start improving your digestion. This is going to be a 2 part series, so stay tuned for more information on how to improve your gut motility.
If you'd like to learn more and have information at your fingertips, I encourage you to sign up for the self paced online course - Mind Your Gut.

NMLP EP 144 : Summer weight loss tips for sustainable weight loss
Summer is around the corner, which means many of my patients are asking me.... "How can I drop the pounds fast?"
Over the last few weeks I've heard:
+ I want to slim down for my cruise in July
+ we're going on vacation, I'd like to lose some weight
+ we're headed to beach in a few weeks, how much weight do you think I'll be able to lose?
+ I'd like to lose 1-2lbs a week
+ My friends are taking Octavia and dropping weight fast, do you think that's something for me?
+ my husband is doing keto and has lost a ton of weight already but keto messed up my digestion, so don't think I can try that again
I am totally down for you to lose weight but want to make sure you're doing it in a way that your body will appreciate and want you to keep the weight off long term. Quick fix diets aren't sustainable, which is why most people yoyo diet or hop around to different diets (I mean, think about how many have you tried).
On today's podcast episode at Nutrition's My Life is all about helping you understanding what really helps most people lose the weight they want and keep it off.
Share this episode on your social media and tag me, @nutritionsmylife ! Would love to see you helping your family/friends understand metabolism and weight loss a bit more!

NMLP EP 151 : Protein Needs
When trying to lose weight, building muscle mass, or generally trying to be healthier... all you hear is PROTEIN PROTEIN PROTEIN.
Butttttt How much protein should we be eating each day?
If you talk to a personal trainer or an avid gym goer, you might think 1g/pound of body weight. Well the recommended daily allowance or RDA for most adults is 0.8g/kg of body weight. To get your weight into kilograms/kg you need to divide weight in pounds by 2.2. This could look like a 180lb individual divided by 2.2 = ~82kg.
This could be either 180g of protein to try to eat (wowzas) OR aim for at least 65g protein (phew that's easier).
Now, do I frequently recommend 1g/kg of body weight!? YESSS!!! So in that example I just gave, that's 82g protein a day! Still a lot easier to achieve than 180g protein a day.
PLUS veggies, whole graine, legumes/beans, nuts/seeds also contain protein. So ADD to your meal :)

NMLP EP 152 : Weight Stigmas
According to many health professionals (ahmmm doctors!)
If you're in a bigger body- all your health problems are because of your weight.
If you're in a bigger body- you must be gorging yourself with food all day long.
If you're in a thin body- you are either underweight and need to gain or you can't have certain health conditions because you're in a small body and those health conditions only happen in bigger bodies.
As a dietitian I'm sick of it! I'm sick and tired of hearing doctors tell my patients to fast for 2 days each week or to do the keto diet etc.. I'm sick and tired of doctors blaming everything on weight for some people and ignoring health concerns of others.
Doctors, physician assistants, nurse practioners, and other health providers- do better!
On today's episode of the Nutrition's My Life Podcast, I'm sharing with you my experience as a dietitian- what I hear while on sessions and better ways to speak to our patients. This is me talking to doctors.... Have you ever thought of asking your patient:
1.Does your body allow you to do all the things you want it to?
2. How do you feel about your body (optional: when you look in the mirror?)
3. Where do you see yourself 6-12 months from now if you continue your current eating habits?
4. How much sleep do you get every night?
5. Do you feel rested upon waking up?
6. Do you wake up in the middle of the night
(questions 4-6 need to be asked becuase we know that sleep apnea or insomnia etc can mess with our hormones [like our hunger and fullness hormones], can mess with our digestion etc)
7. Do you poop every day? (if someone isn't pooping daily, it's a good indicator they've either inadvertently messed up their metabolism or not eating enough fiber rich foods)
8. Are you skipping any meals? (many times people that skip meals have slowed down their metabolism)
If you're a patient and a doctor is not giving you the advice you're looking for or needing for your nutrition or health- please ask for a dietitian referral OR if you're a provider, please refer your patients to a dietitian.
Today's episode is 40 minutes long- I did get fired up about this topic and I know you will too!
