Don't Salt My Game | With Laura Thomas, PhD

Join Registered Nutritionist Laura Thomas, PhD for conversations with game changers. Laura talks to people in wellness, foodies, bloggers, entrepreneurs from cool brands, creatives, nutritionists, doctors, body positivity people, mindfulness experts, and anyone else who is shaking up the wellness world, to find out how they stay on top of their game – and to help you do you, but better. It’s not all handstands and courgetti though - she and her guests aren’t afraid to dig deep into the darker side of wellness and WILL call BS on weird, faddy trends, that don’t have any legitimacy or scientific merit. Fresh pods every Friday. #dontsaltmygame

This week’s episode is with blogger (and soon to be Dr.) Jennifer Robinson. She’s giving us the lowdown on nutrition ed for med students, we talk about if body positivity is sending the wrong message about health and then we get real about Instagram’s  exercise addiction. We talk about how much is too much, and how this healthy habit can become unhealthy, plus what to do when you can’t stop.

Let me introduce you to Ollie Aplin, designer and author of This Book Will Make You Stronger. We’re talking about mental health. Like, really talking about it. We cover deep issues like bipolar disorder, suicide, and drug use. If you, or someone you know is affected by any of these issues then please head to my site for resources to help you. Otherwise listen to this important conversation, share it with a dude in your life who needs to talk about some stuff. In this episode Ollie teaches us all a lesson in vulnerability, and shows us it’s a superpower, not a weakness. #1in4

Since not all of you can come to my talk at Balance Festival this week I wanted to cover some of the concepts of Intuitive Eating in a dedicated episode and I have my girl and friend of the podcast Pixie Turner here to help me. We talk about some of constructs of intuitive eating and the problems with dieting, and how lots of us are stuck in the diet mentality because of diet tools and diet culture. I'm also sharing some tips to help you break out of the diet mentality because without this step, intuitive eating becomes just another diet.

Today I'm taking about handling your ish when it comes to anxiety with Chloé Brotheridge, author of The Anxiety Solution, a new book that promises to help you become calmer, happier and more confident (sign me up!). I'm not going to lie, I got Chloé for totally selfish reasons, but I think there's going to be lots in here to help you out too! We talk about how to stop playing the comparison game,  staying in your lane (but waving at the people in the lane next to you), and how to cultivate more happiness, which will ultimately lead to more success. Chloé shares loads of little nuggets of wisdom about dealing with anxiety and even sets you a little homework challenge (see my Instagram @laurathomasphd for deets).

I figured you could use a fun mini-sode to welcome you back to work after the bank holiday. Dr. Anita Mitra aka Gynae Geek is giving us the low down on the vaginal microbiome; what's it for, why is it important, and how do we keep it healthy, what do we do when something goes wrong, and should we take probiotics. Also how evolution screwed up when it comes to sperm :-/
