Eat This: The Healthiest Diet

When everything is taken into account, the average adult will try about 126 different diets in their lifetime, according to a poll that I came across recently. That’s a lot of diets, or specific ways of eating with the hopes of reaching a goal weight, as that seems to be the number one reason for putting oneself on a crash diet. And by crash diet I mean a diet that’s far from your usual. I’m […]

Eat This: Paleo, Pegan or Lectin Free

Headline-inducing, outta-a-book type diets are attractive because they tell you what to eat and what not to eat with big promises of helping you feel better, look better, end your pain, help you lose weight, dodge the disease bullet and live a long and healthy life. The list of top 10 diets can change from year to year, with a new one hitting media headlines depending on which celeb has followed it with life changing […]

Eat This: Don’t ditch the carbs, switch the carbs

Few foods can make you feel as warm and happy as a big bowl of pasta or a few thick slices of warm bread smothered in creamy butter. Carbs are life for so many people. The mere thought of giving up bread, pasta or pizza (or the sweeter carbs like cookies or donuts) sends them into a tailspin.  Carbohydrates – or carbs, as they are fondly known – come in a bunch of tastes, textures, […]

Eat This: Drainage vs Detox

The meaning of the word detoxify, according to Merrium Webster, is to “remove a harmful substance (such as a poison or toxin) or the effect of such and to render (a harmful substance) harmless.” In my circles, a detox is usually seen more as removing foods and drinks from your daily diet for a period of time with the view that it will cleanse your body. What’s interesting is that when someone puts themselves on […]

Eat This: Are all calories equal?

Stepped on the scale lately? If it’s showing you a number that isn’t to your liking, what’s your first thought? Most likely – eat less? It is January after all. It’s that time when we are all more focused on making a change to diet and lifestyle and perhaps, like my mom used to say, a time to “button your lip”, meaning that she wasn’t happy with her weight and so it was time to […]

Eat This: Symptoms of deficiency (Part 2)

Burning, bloating, belching, burping, and bumps. That’s what we are going to talk about today. Last week, I talked about deficiencies to do with your mouth and feet and in this episode we are going to talk about your belly and about the bumps that you can feel on backs of your arms, sometimes your legs and abdomen or bottom. Because, believe it or not there are nutrient deficiencies associated with them all.   For anyone […]

Eat This: Q&A

One day a long time ago… ok about 12 years ago, a registered nutritionist first appeared on a local breakfast TV show, whizzing up homemade baby food live on air. It wasn’t a fluke to be there, it was a publicist who came up with the idea, pitched it and secured the spot. This publicist just so happened to have a beautiful baby boy, who was about to start eating solids, and his mom needed […]

Eat This: The root causes of overweight

Obese, overweight, corpulent, pudgy, fat, heavy, plump, stout, well-padded, paunchy, beefy, pear shaped or heavy hips, apple shaped or rotund, beer belly, thunder thighs, big butt, thick waist and now the Quarentine 15 are all terms for carrying excess weight that could mean you’re not feeling so great about yourself when you step on the scale or put on anything other than your stretchy-non-waist-buttoned-leisure wear.  If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard […]
