    184: Listen to this before you start a diet

    184: Listen to this before you start a diet

    The holidays can be challenging and triggering for those of us who struggle with our body image and yo-yo dieting.

    In this episode, I explore the concept of dieting and informed consent for calorie-restricted diets. Not just because I'm a physician and I advise patients and families, but for ourselves, before we embark on a calorie restriction journey.

    182: Life is Sweeter with These Gems: Sweet Potatoes

    Sweet potatoes are indeed a nutrition powerhouse! They are loaded with beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin B5, vitamin E, vitamin K, pantothenic acid, copper, iron, calcium, choline, folate, niacin, chlorogenic acid, and anthocyanins. Phew! (Say that three times!)

    181: What we feed our children matters

    181: What we feed our children matters

    We as parents should feel empowered. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or childcare provider, we can influence what our children eat, not just now, but when they're adults! And this is so impactful because nutrition has so much to do with these healthy lifestyle factors that can affect our development of chronic disease and our longevity and joy in life. This is huge!
