Episode 053: Defining Clean Eating and How to Put It Into Practice

“I’m already eating clean?” is a response I get from a lot of people, who are working in improving their health but still struggling.

When I review how they're eating, I see gaps between their perceptions of “eating clean” versus what it actually means, and I’ve come to realize that many people just don’t understand what clean eating is and then wonder why they aren’t seeing the progress they’re expecting.

In this episode, I share:

  • How I define clean eating

  • What foods to avoid

  • How to put it into practice

  • And much more!

Episode 051: Bariatrics, Autoimmune Diseases and Bridging the Gap Between Convention and Holistic Medicine with Lori Newlon

In this episode, I’m joined by my dear friend, Lori Newlon of The Bariatric Dish. Lori is a registered nurse (she has 18 years of experience and counting!) with a specialty certification in bariatric nursing.

Thirteen years ago, she herself had weight loss surgery and struggled with a number of post-operative complications. She turned to real food nutrition to help support her recovery and long-term health which has helped her maintain a 160-pound weight loss. She’s since become a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and also runs her own counseling practice helping clients work towards improved health and wellness by adopting a real, whole food diet.

Since having bariatric surgery, Lori has developed not one, not two, but THREE autoimmune diseases, Reynard’s Disease, psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

You’ll hear Lori and I chat about a number of things from what is Nutritional Therapy, to her experience with weight loss surgery, how it led her to specialize in Bariatric nursing, and how holistic practices helped her recover from it, ultimately leading her to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and start her own counseling practice.

We also talk about:

  • How she bridges the gap between conventional and holistic medicine

  • Her struggles with three autoimmune diseases

  • And we even get into “what is gut health” and how important it is to overall wellness, what is  Leaky Gut Syndrome and even how heart disease is tied to sugar, not fats!
