How to Feel Full, part 2

CW sort of: I want to start this post with a caveat that I’m writing about food and eating behaviors. My intended audience are people who already have a pretty healthy, non-disordered relationship with food, and mostly folks who are interested in the cross-section of physique sport, performance and body size. As Jen recently saidContinue reading “How to Feel Full, part 2”

Physique Change Without Dieting: Dietary Restriction vs. Restraint

CW: A great big caveat: this post is about food and eating behaviors. My intended audience are people who already have a pretty healthy, non-disordered relationship with food, and mostly folks who are interested in the cross-section of physique sport, performance and body size.

“This is harder than what most anybody else tries to do,” Revolutionary You Podcast, Ep. #319, Dr. Allan Bacon: Strategies for Emotional Eating and Overcoming Cravings (pt. 3 of 4)

I am happy to highlight today this excellent conversation between Jason and Dr. Allan Bacon on emotional eating and cravings. This is part 3 of a 4-part conversation, and parts one and two were both information-packed, “knowledge bombs” (as Jason called them) as well. However, this topic is close to my heart and I suspectContinue reading ““This is harder than what most anybody else tries to do,” Revolutionary You Podcast, Ep. #319, Dr. Allan Bacon: Strategies for Emotional Eating and Overcoming Cravings (pt. 3 of 4)”

“The middle ground that we tend to avoid,” 3DMJ Podcast #183: The Habits of Highly Effective Preps

CW: This one is all about extreme fat loss and weight loss. If you’re in recovery from an eating disorder or struggling with chronic dieting, I strongly suggest you skip this one. Even for those who are just trying to avoid diet culture bullshit, this topic can be a lot to handle. I do myContinue reading ““The middle ground that we tend to avoid,” 3DMJ Podcast #183: The Habits of Highly Effective Preps”

“The only uncontroversial fact we can agree upon in nutrition,” Sigma Nutrition Radio Ep. #397: Dietary Nitrates & Nitrites

This week’s Sigma Nutrition Radio is an excellent conversation about the current nutritional science around dietary nitrates and nitrites, their potential impacts on the prevalence of positive and negative health outcomes, and recommendations for a healthy diet. As I’ve said elsewhere, I don’t feel qualified to opine on the science–Danny and Alan are the experts,Continue reading ““The only uncontroversial fact we can agree upon in nutrition,” Sigma Nutrition Radio Ep. #397: Dietary Nitrates & Nitrites”

“With freedom comes responsibility,” Balance 365 Life Radio, Ep. #177: Why Food Freedom Isn’t Working For You

This is a short but important podcast from the ladies at Balance 365. Food freedom, as defined by Jen, is when you can say “yes” or “no” to food without it carrying a big emotional cost; it is not unrestrained eating from a place of rebellion. A huge part of the teaching at Balance 365Continue reading ““With freedom comes responsibility,” Balance 365 Life Radio, Ep. #177: Why Food Freedom Isn’t Working For You”

Sigma Nutrition Radio Ep. #395: Prof. Carel le Roux–Current Thinking on Obesity Treatment

Don’t tell my spouse; I think I’m in love! I was so thrilled to be listening to Dr. Carel le Roux(1), and I’m excited to share this conversation with you today, too. This short episode of Sigma Nutrition Radio presents what I suspect could be a really powerful paradigm shift in our thinking on understandingContinue reading “Sigma Nutrition Radio Ep. #395: Prof. Carel le Roux–Current Thinking on Obesity Treatment”

“My body is my compass” Balance365 Life Radio–Episode 175: The Truth About Intermittent Fasting

Wow! This is such a wonderful and nuanced conversation about potential downsides to taking on intermittent fasting, especially for women and other folks who are estrogen-dominant. There are some really important caveats at the start of the episode–if this is something folks are doing under the advisement of their doctor or as a part ofContinue reading ““My body is my compass” Balance365 Life Radio–Episode 175: The Truth About Intermittent Fasting”

Weekend Food Prep: Homemade Granola

I like granola to sprinkle on yogurt or to eat as a cereal, but premade granolas are almost always too greasy and sweet for me. I’ve played with granola recipes for years, and I’ve finally come up with a preferred method. Below, you will find the master recipe, in which you can switch things upContinue reading “Weekend Food Prep: Homemade Granola”
