Real Health Conversations
Real Health Conversations (Formerly Low-Carb Conversations) is hosted by Holly Jean Mullen, FNTP and features a variety of voices in the world of modern nutrition and health science, expressing many different points of view.

This week on Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson FNTP and Guests, Leah is joined by guest Co-host Holly Jean Barrett and Guest Alison Marras. Alison Marras is an NYC-based Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Food Blogger, and Mindset Coach who helps busy women get in tune with their bodies, feel confident in the kitchen with delicious real food and thrive on their healing journeys. Find her wellness tips, recipes, meal plans, and nutrition programs over at

This week on the podcast Leah, Holly and Alison discuss whether people are over diet culture and are looking to bring pleasure and joy back into food rather than restriction. They also discuss a new study on mindfulness and how a new study suggests obese children are more compliant with mindfulness and weight loss. Alison discusses how mindfulness helped her and now how she helps her clients with these techniques.
