How to Eat When You’re Stressed with Ali Miller
These days, stress can feel inescapable. But did you know that what, when, and how you eat can help you deal with stress more effectively? I sat down with Functional Medicine Dietitian Ali Miller to dive into the connection between stress, metabolism, and the food on your plate. In our discussion, we covered how to know if you’ve got a cortisol issue; using food as medicine to support your adrenals, thyroid, and hormonal balance; and whether intermittent fasting is helpful or harmful. Plus, we talked about how you can use diets as tools to empower metabolic flexibility and restore your connection to your body’s feedback. It’s a juicy episode! If you’ve been feeling a little (or a lot) stressed recently, this is information that could truly change your life.

9 Foods for Fat Loss You Should Eat Every Day
Believe it or not, you don't have to shrink your diet to shrink your waistline. In fact, you just might lose weight by eating more… especially if you’re adding foods that support you on the weight-loss path. In this episode, I share nine foods for fat loss you’ll want to add to your weekly rotation. The beauty of these foods is that on top of encouraging the fat to melt away, they’re great for your overall health. They have the power to help you promote insulin function, tackle inflammation, and support healthy blood-sugar balance—which is absolutely critical for great, sustained energy. By eating these foods, you’ll also help cultivate a gut microbiome that can continue to promote weight loss. Amazing, right? Give it a listen right now so you know how to make your next meal a delicious, fat-burning feast.

The New Indicator of Metabolic Health You Need to Know About With Dr. David Perlmutter
What’s the main thing you need to lose weight, have great brain function, be able to exercise, and generally live a healthy, fulfilling life? It all comes down to metabolic health. And for years, we’ve been overlooking one of the earliest indicators that your metabolic health is headed in the wrong direction. This is something you can improve on your own through better habits… and can potentially help prevent some of the common pitfalls of aging. But only if you know how. On today’s episode of the podcast, I’m joined by neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, Dr. David Perlmutter, who is going to explain what this indicator is, its dangers, what your levels should be, and what you can do to turn the metabolic ship around. It’s an incredibly important episode for all of us, so don’t wait to listen.
