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.

If you experience digestive issues or period problems, then this is the episode for you. Today I'm joined by Robyn Nohling, a Nurse Practitioner & Registered Dietitian based in NYC who specialises in eating disorders and women's health. We talk about how restricting food to try and solve your digestive issues might be self-defeating, and could cause more stress and functional problems if you're not addressing the underlying causes. We discuss the gut-brain axis and the role stress plays on our digestive system and how just thinking a food is bad for you might cause a negative physiological response (the nocebo effect). Plus the best ways to support your digestive health if you're recovering from restrictive eating. Then we switch things up and talk about periods, hormones, and what the heck is causing your period to disappear, aka hypothalamic amenorrhea. Plus what to do to help you get your period back, and what the big deal is with it being gone in the first place!

Are you ready to shut down some beauty myths? Because consultant dermatologist Dr. Anjali Mahto is here to SHUT 👏 THEM 👏 DOWN 👏 - do you really need eye cream? What about double -cleansing? And do oil based serums actually help with acne? Anjali distills down what we really need in our bathroom cabinets, and what's just junk. Plus we talk about the unrealistic beauty standards placed on women and how dermatologists need to step up and take responsibility when they suspect body dysmorphia. Plus why we need to celebrate the wisdom and experience of older women instead of trying to erase them from consciousness. So much great stuff in this episode, LEAN IN.

YOU GUYS, this episode is 🔥🔥🔥 Megan Crabbe, aka BodyPosiPanda, BoPo warrior, author, and earth angel is back on the pod for round 2 (go back and listen to my first ep with her - #4). In this episode we talk about Megan’s experiences writing the book, and how that was for her in terms of her mental health. We talk about anxieties, insecurities,  imposter syndrome and the comparison game. So yes, even one of the most influential body positivity advocates on Instagram has bad days and I’m so grateful to Megan for being so honest with us about her mental health. We also talk about what happens when you are learning to eat intuitively and some of the challenges of that process and how to deal with the fear that you may never stop eating. You guys sent me a bunch of questions on this so I’ve tried to work them in. We talk about some common questions that come up around health and body positivity, Megan shuts down diet culture, we talk about how to deal with diet mentality, and why representation and diversity of bodies is so important. We talk about thin privilege, and soooo much more. And then Megan leaves us with her top tips for body positivity, aside from buying her book, which, if you don’t have it yet, then what are you doing with your life?
