Wellness Wednesday: Health Podcasts

I have been loving podcasts for the past year, you can read about my favorites here. They are so easy to listen to while I'm getting ready in the morning, on a long drive, cooking or working out. I also love that I am able to maximize my time by doing what ever I need to do and also learning. The past few months I have listened to a few podcasts with registered dietitians and health educators and they have changed my routines and diet for the better. 

Tanya Zuckerbrot - The F Factor diet

TSC Him & Her Show: Tanya Zuckerbrot, The F-Factor Diet 

This is the first health podcast that made me look at my "healthy" lifestyle and see how unhealthy it really was. Some of my favorite things that Tanya said is that there is healthy eating and then healthy eating for weight loss. She pointed out how much fat is in an avocado toast covered in olive oil or a sugar and carb loaded açai bowl and that the food portions at restaurants are 2-3 times as much as you need. Since listening to this podcast I have added GG Crackers into my meals, watched my fiber, net carb, fat and protein intake and I have never felt better. I can tell the most during Pure Barre classes because I feel so energized during the entire class and am able to do two in a row without feeling burnt out after.

Feel Good Podcast: How to Naturally Balane Your Hunger Hormones with Kelly LeVeque, Be Well By Kelly

Almost 30 Podcast: Celebrity Holistic Nutritionist, Kelly LeVeque of Be Well By Kelly

These podcasts are all full of so many amazing tips! Kelly is my new favorite person to listen to. She talks about the science behind blood sugar and how food effects your body and makes it so easy to find quick ways to change your habits to make you feel better. I have added her Fab Four Rule (fiber, fat, protein and greens) to all my meals and it makes the biggest difference for feeling full. My new favorite breakfast is a 'Fab Four Smoothie' with 1 tbsp protein powder, 2 tbsp almond butter, a ton of spinach, 1 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup bran buds sprinkled on top.

The Lady Gang: Episode 88 - Candace Burch   //   The Lady Gang: Episode 122 - Candace Burch Returns

Almost 30 Podcast: Episode 27: Crazy Sexy Hormones: How They Effect Everything In Your Life. Interview with Candace Burch 

These are also full of a ton of science made easy. Candace lists so many common symptoms that are cause by hormone imbalance, explains how we can help to balance our hormones and things that might be causing hormone imbalance that you didn't even think of. I have added Maca and Turmeric into my day hoping to make a difference and I already use F.lux on my computer and Night Mode on my phone.
