The Science Behind Why Diets Fail
Diets don’t work. Period. But lifestyle changes? That’s where the magic happens. We’ll walk you through what our eating habits has to do with inflammation and what whole foods are. We also highlight the importance of human evolution, and what this has to do with the diet-disease connection.
Carbs, Proteins, and Fats
We dive deep to cover what they are, how they affect your body, and why certain types have gotten a bad rap. For vegetarians, vegans, and meat-eaters alike, we get into the different types and choices available so you can make your next meal with science on your side.
Animal Products, Fats, & Insulin
All fats are not created equal, and choosing the right ones are essential for feeling (and looking!) your best. Knowing which animal products to grab and what to say no to is the difference between giving your body quality protein to work with, and adding flame to the inflammation fire. And inflammation? The BFF of disease. We also breakdown how all this affects your blood sugar and things like insulin.
Revamping Your Pantry
Knowing what to stock your kitchen with isn’t easy, especially when your old favorites have all landed in the “not to great for me” pile. But what can you use instead? Don’t worry, we’ve got answers for you. We’d like to introduce you to all your new favorites, from flour to sweeteners.
Vitamins and Minerals
What are they? What foods are they in? And, most importantly, how much should you be getting? We go through a detailed list of minerals (let’s talk zinc and copper!), vitamins, and how to put all this information together.
Pesticides, Additives, and Sugar
Have you heard these things are “bad,” but have no clue why? Grab a seat, we’ll break it down for you, and explain what you can do about it.
Intolerances and Allergies
What exactly is an allergy, and how does it happen? And what’s the deal with lactose intolerance (which isn’t actually an allergy at all)? From the difference between food allergies vs. sensitivities, to the most common food allergies, we’re going to shed light on this misunderstood topic.
The Science of Exercise
You’ve heard “exercise is good for you,” but why? No need to wonder anymore. We brought together the science for you, because we know that true motivation is a simple as understanding the “why” behind well-meaning advice. Exercise IS good for you, and here’s why, from where to start, timing and quality, the relationship to hormones, and weight loss.
