Clean-Cut Nutrition for a Healthy Living

It’s time for some nutrition talk. Stress is high, we need to boost immunity, and it’s time for a physical and energetic-reset. Therefore, I brought in 2 of my nutritionist friends, Lori Sawyer & Caren Boscaino, to talk about all things nutrition. They are both moms, busy entrepreneurs, fitness pros, and nutritionists who “get it” when it comes to food, fuel and having FUN with your nutrition.

Specifically, in today’s episode, we discuss…

  • How to balance out being a busy parent, kids around the house more & eating more, and some ways to include them in your nutrition.
  • What can you do if your kids are struggling right now with the current state-of-affairs and how it affects appetite and nutrition.
  • What specific foods to eat to boost immunity.
  • How insulin plays a huge role in both weight-loss and energy and what foods NOT to eat to avoid insulin spikes.
  • My “secret” to avoid sugar cravings.
  • Gut health and what foods and supplements one should eat to ensure gut health.
  • How to avoid “Yo-Yo” Dieting and create a sustained nutrition plan to maximize energy & stamina. 
  • Thoughts on Intermittent Fasting.
  • Why gyms and fit-pros need to make sure their nutrition programs are buttoned up right now and can offer results-based, but realistic, nutritional programming.

Lori and Caren don’t hold back in sharing their best “Clean Cut Nutrition” tips and habits to maximize one’s health and vitality right now. My friends, this episode is full of great information and content so please help spread the love to all your friends and community. Be sure to tag us on your social media so that I can return some love.
