On this episode we talk all about how our food effects both our physical and mental health. Our hormones are affected tremendously by what we eat and there’s a reason why diets don’t work, they don’t give us the balance we need, for example, high protein = low mood. Clinical nutritionist and former chef Emma Ellice Flint joins me to go deeper into this conversation, she is passionate about making a difference to our health and happiness through food and nutrition, and hopefully you’ll glean some great tips from this conversation. Here are some notes..
Emma’s website is emmasnutrition.com – as we said there are loads of recipes on there, she offers 1:1 consultations, hosts workshops and if you follow her on social media, she’s regularly posting more ideas for how to eat healthily.
We talk about phytoestrogens and other great ingredients in plant food that specifically support our bodies as we go through hormone changes:
High protein low carb are short term diets that can cause long term bloating and fatigue. Remember, high protein = low mood
Exercise is also connected to gut function as well as sleep quality and emotional health. They all connect together.
Emma will be back in the new year to talk about weight, but in the meantime, please do check her out online or on social media she is @emmas_nutrition
