Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Podcast Leah and Holly Jean are recapping the latest episodes:

424: Reducing Inflammation with a Low Carb Diet, Jeanne David
425: Are you Hydrated with Cait Crowell from What Cait Ate
426: Is Low Carb on the Menu when you are Expecting with Lily Nichols RDN
When it comes to diet, there are no shortages of types to choose from! No wonder it can be confusing when it comes to trying to decide the best way to eat for your health and for your health goals. In this episode Leah and Holly review an article that does a great job at adding to the noise and confusion when it comes to eating styles and diets. Listen in as they discuss 12 Diets You Should Never Try – what do you think makes the list? Holly and Leah review clear the noise, correct some misleading advice, and their thoughts on this list of some popular, some absurd, diet trends.

The ladies then discuss a new article out as to whether our Paleo Ancestors actually ate more carbs – but were carbs the same back then as they are now? Tune in to find this and more.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the podcast Holly and Leah chat with registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and Certified Diabetes Educator, Lily Nichols. Lily is the Author of two amazing books: Real Food for Pregnancy and Real Food for Gestational Diabetes.

From the minute you find out you’re pregnant to the day of your delivery, as an expecting mother you’re bombarded with an abundance of confusing information. The information overload can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to advice around how to nourish your body before, during, and after pregnancy. Lily makes navigating pregnancy nutrition as easy as possible and in this episode she debunks some common prenatal nutrition myths and tells about how the medical and nutrition industry got it wrong when it comes to the common prenatal nutrition recommendations and macronutrient guidelines.

This week on the podcast we have Cait Crowell from What Cait Ate. She is a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner specializing in gut health. She has a podcast called The Cait Crowell Podcast.

Leah, Holly Jean and Cait have an interesting discussion around Gut Issues and how they are manifesting in Cait’s practice. They then look at dehydration and how this impacts so many health issues. The book Leah refers to is called The Body’s Many Cries for Water. The discussion turns to adding electrolytes to your water and why Gatorade is not a good choice.

Episode 424

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

On this episode we are joined by Jeanne David, Founder and CEO of Outer Aisle Gourmet. Jeanne initially created her cauliflower-based sandwich thins and pizza crusts to help her family remove processed carbs and sugars from their diet, while still enjoying comfort food classics like pizza and tacos.

Jeanne is passionate about bringing a low carb, grain and gluten-free bread alternative to those looking to improve health and maximize longevity by reducing chronic, systemic inflammation caused by overconsumption of processed carbohydrates and excess sugar. As a product of the “low fat” diet generation, Jeanne had an eye opening interaction with a life insurance actuary who referred to her generation as one that will “live short and die long”. It was then that she began to learn how inflammation plays is an underlying factor that plays a role in the 5 leading diseases – diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer.

Research suggests that taking out refined, blood sugar spiking carbs like white bread and soda is good, but replacing them with fiber- and antioxidant-rich vegetables is even better. Outer Aisle Gourmet to the rescue – Toss the bread, use Cauliflower Instead!

Episode 421

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Barrett, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

In this episode, Leah and Holly Jean enjoy a down to earth discussion with Jenn Kautsch. Jenn is the founder of SoberSis, a like-minded community of women who are renegotiating their relationship with alcohol w/o labels, shame, judgment or rules. Jenn supports women through practical tools and connection while breaking the wine o’clock habit and she does not hold back in this episode – we talk about all the feels, the mixed emotions, the tips and the tricks!

Between 2019 into 2020, reports of women binge drinking rose amid the pandemic. Now many of those women, particularly mothers, say they’re reevaluating their relationship with alcohol in hopes to put an end to the, potentially dangerous, trend.

We’ve all seen the memes floating around – joking about how “mommy needs her juice”, and while it may start as all fun and games, many women are discovering that the ritual of unwinding and relaxing with a drink turns into a slippery slope of needing a drink to cope with stress. If you have been questioning your relationship with alcohol, or curious about breaking free from that detox-to-retox cycle, this is the episode for you!

Episode 412

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Podcast, Amber and Holly speak with Tracee Gluhaich – certified health coach, personal trainer, energy & breathwork practitioner, author of No Fricken Weigh, and founder of the non-profit Healthy Hope.

In this episode:

Tracee shares how her unsuccessful history trying to sustain dieting with the calories-in-calories-out model led her learning the hard way that health is more than just food and a healthy lifestyle is key to long term success. Her simple, results oriented training programs focus on teaching clients how to design their ideal fit and healthy life by crowding out the noise. Empowerment comes first from boundaries.

TheHealthyHope.org is the non-profit organization Tracee started after being touched and inspired by a long-term client who lost her husband. Together, they realized that widowed spouses need support and community that can bond in the gym and the kitchen.

Read the story about the amazing and inspiring Willie Murphy here.

This week on the Podcast, Leah and Holly are joined by Courtney Bursich from Organic Blondie. Courtney is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, AADP Board Certified Holistic Health Coach, and passionate health hacker who focuses on optimizing female hormones and taking an individualized approach to healing.

Courtney shares what hormonal imbalances are and how she sees them commonly manifest in her clients. She shares how estrogen dominance/androgen dominance are among the common.

She also shares that “women’s cycles and fertility are a vital sign. When we are always fighting our body, it ends up rebelling against us and our treatments rather than taking the time to slow down and try to figure it out. Certain medications and interventions may be necessary in some cases, but maybe not, and at what cost?”

What foods and natural alternatives are helpful in hormonal imbalance.

And where does Ayurveda – An ancient Indian tradition fit into our modern lifestyles.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson, Holly Jean Barrett and Amber Horn, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

This week on the Podcast, Leah and Holly take a journey with Jonathan Shane, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner at The Keto Road.

In this episode:

Jonathan shares his transformation health journey and struggles with weight and body dysmorphia.

Leah and Jonathan chat about what lead Jonathan to study as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.

Find out more about the Nutritional Therapy Association here for USA classes and here for Australia classes. Enrollment for February closes soon!

Holly Jean and John discuss the latest controversy over Cosmopolitan magazine and the cover photo featuring obese women with the caption “this is healthy”. The magazine has come under criticism, being accused of glamorizing obesity, for being irresponsible for displaying obesity as the picture of health during a time where a global pandemic is disproportionately affecting people with obesity and metabolic disorders more adversely. Then there is an outrage in response to the criticism from the body positivity and the body love movement. Holly Jean and Jonathan discuss the valid opinions and arguments on both sides of these discussions and how conversation is opening a lot of doors to understanding and dissecting a complicated topic.

Jonathan shares his proven success formula he uses to help clients:

The ROAD method

R – Remove O – Observe A – Action D – Discipline
