This week on the podcast Leah and Amber are joined by Clinical Nutritionist, Intuitive Eating Expert, the host of Going Beyond The Food Show, Stephanie Dodier. She has been on the podcast before and she is one of our favourite people in the health and wellness space.

In this current climate we are being bombarded with articles and social media post about the #quarantine15 and how gaining weight is the worst thing that could happen. In this episode, Amber and Leah talk with Stephanie about fat phobia and how that is creating more stress and anxiety around our changed eating habits during quarantine. This is a time for nurturing ourselves, not punishment! The ladies finish off the episode by discussing ways to turn our home into a place of relaxation, since we are spending so much time there now.

This week on Low Carb Conversations with FNTPs Leah, Holly and Amber, Leah and Holly are joined by Dr. Pran Yoganathan. Dr. Pran graduated in medicine from University of Otago in New Zealand. His training in internal medicine was undertaken in the Westmead Public Hospital (near Sydney, Australia). His Advanced training in Gastroenterology was completed in the major teaching hospitals in South Western Sydney.

In this episode, Dr. Pran shares his wisdom and clinical experience regarding the — sometimes overlooked — importance of diet in relation to GI health. He shares his own experience with overcoming metabolic syndrome and how he learned to heal himself with nutrition and intermittent fasting. Looking at plant based products and the vegan movement as a way to help the planet, we flip the coin and discuss toxic chemicals found in many plant-based meat products that are problematic from a GI perspective as well as GMOs, inflammation, the gut microbiome and dietary changes that accompany aging. Dr. Pran also shares his professional experience in the importance of balanced blood sugars and insulin in the treatment of endometriosis.

Since this podcast was recorded the event at Low Carb Down Under has been postponed. We will let you know when it is rescheduled.
