Jessica Jones, dietitian and host of Food Heaven podcast, joins me to chat about her career, and then, Whole30. January seems like the most popular time for people to "try" the Whole30, so we're here to try and help you avoid that path. I put out a call to social media, asking people why they've done the Whole30, and what they liked about it, to try and integrate various perspectives.
Tune into our conversation to learn why Whole30 isn't the best way to adopt new habits like meal planning, trying new recipes, and eating to feel better. There are many other ways to do all of the above, without extreme food restrictions or rigid food rules.
We address: meal planning, recipes, digestive issues, sugar addiction (or lack thereof), PCOS, and the hidden threat of deprivation.
Most of the things we talked about:
Food heaven show on YouTube, and the Food Heaven podcast “I guess the Whole30 is very much still a thing”, on my blog Marci Evans on Food Addiction: Food Pscyh & RD Real Talk (#26) “Why Fear of Sugar Addiction May Be More Toxic Than Sugar Is” by Rebecca Scritchfield RD PCOS Nutrition resources: Julie Duffy Dillon & Rachael Hartley
