"Personally it's what has healed me through many health crisis exactly so good morning. Everyone i'm caroline hudson and i'm also a registered and licensed dietician with well over thirty years of working with clients in a variety of different settings. I personally appreciate the importance of eating real food especially real protein to maintain my muscle mass. And i to tell you a little bit about an older adult who has maintained her muscles for many many decades. This is my mother so just fall. She's going to be celebrating. Her ninety fourth birthday actually listen to the show caroline. Sometimes it's early. He does tend to sleep in a little bit as so and she loves to read her morning paper so I would say she didn't always get to it on saturday morning but anyway one of her favorite hobbies includes hiking around our cabin which is on lake superior but our absolute favorite thing to do is kayaking wonderful kayaking on lake superior. She does it on the shores of lake superior we. We bought her her children. There's many of us we bought her a kayak on her seventieth birthday or four her seventieth birthday us fan. She's been kayaking now for a long time. You know twenty four years how she gets. That kayak down to the water. We do have a little heus more her but in a she'll drag that thing she's got still drag it up a little ways and and hook it up and she also has to get it down there to the water and it's actually pretty steep so i can't even believe she can still do that. There were times i can do that. I feel like it's just really really awkward. This woman is amazing. Yes she really is so typically what she'll have for breakfast can't she's ninety four she Probably doesn't quite way a hundred pounds. She'll have one or two eggs in the morning and some toast and butter. You know so. That's great you might have a little bit greek yogurt with a few berries and topped with a few nuts or something yum lunch probably closer to a half of a sandwich and i sometimes not maybe not quite enough protein. But she does try to. Have you know at least two to three ounces of protein with her with her sandwich and she'll have her lettuce and tomato and all of that Healthy man as and probably a little bit of butter on on that as well and dinner. She's really a traditionalist. It's a piece of me. And her potato loves a little potato and of course a nice green vegetable usually for and some butter on her on her broccoli or whatever it happens to be. So she's she's a really healthy eater.

"You know, we have a lot of interesting questions today. And if you're concerned about your cholesterol numbers and As a nutritionist. We see that all the time it all we care. Oh, my gosh. Pretty much every day, right? Yes, yes, you know, And or maybe you've had a blood vessel blockage. And maybe you've even had a stent and you're wondering about what constant and you want to do something about it or the other one That's overriding is why is cardiovascular disease? The number one killer? People in America. I mean, what's going on? So we have a lot of questions, and we haven't really popular author with US today. Dr Steven Matz Lee and he is the author of the 30 Day Heart Tune Up. And so he's gonna look in a dress. The myth about cholesterol. And why statin medications may not be the best answer for your heart health, So I'm darling Crist. I'm a certified nutrition specialist. And our co host is Caroline Hudson, who is a registered and licensed dietitian. So welcome this morning to you, Charlie. Thank you Dart. So great to see you were just saying, Oh, my gosh. How long has it been since I've seen Ah, year You're have feels like at least a year and I have, I think So good morning, everyone and welcome to auditioning of nutrition. So you may be wondering who is this doctor Steven Mosley. Well, he is a physician and author. And that her mass least even mass is also a nutritionist. But I have to actually put this other plug in here. He's not just a nutritionist, but he is a fellow of the American College of Nutrition, So that's pretty high up there, right. He's also a trained chef and the creator of the PBS TV special 30 Days who a younger heart and the life like a lot of people saw that and listen to it. Obviously, it's a very, very popular special. So today we're gonna focus on his most recent book, The 30 Day Heart tune up, which not only tells us about how to prevent heart disease, but also how to reverse heart disease. And I think that's really, really important. How do we reverse this? What's going on? And as our number one killer in America As dieticians and nutritionists. So often we see clients who have very high cholesterol and clients with dangerously high blood pressure. Yes, and clients who are pre diabetic or diabetic, and even some clients who have, um Had sense or placed or inserted because of a blockage in a blood vessel. So, you know, Caroline, this topic is really dear to me because I don't think people realize is that my mother died of a sudden heart attack. And then my older brother. He also passed away during open heart surgery. I have a younger brother who had his first heart event. He doesn't column attack Event event when at age 48, It's just really his son. Now who is only 39. It's already having trouble problems with high blood pressure. So then there's me. So I've been working really hard for my 82 3 quarters years. Do not have a heart attack yet. I'm still working on it yet. It's still working at it. But you've already surpassed by the number of members in your family, right? Exactly So so food makes a difference. Oh, food makes a huge difference and not just any food. Yeah, right. We're going to get into that. So, doctor, massively. It is such a pleasure to have you joining us on dishing up nutrition today. You know if we look at all of the different factors Um, of heart disease. For most people, they've been told that the risk factor is cholesterol. But You know, that is the classic thing, but in fact, we're told that cholesterol but we actually need cholesterol. We're not told that. But we actually need cholesterol and using you know, since there are many forms of cholesterol, some obviously more beneficial than others. It doesn't make any sense to just lump all of that cholesterol together. But you know you very wise. They point out that it's not just about cholesterol, but rather other things like okay, so I want to know. And we had a We had a listener. Ask us Doctor massively. Why is there such a large gap and difference in advice between the heart health advice from maybe a medical doctor or some of those conventional click clinics or hospitals and what nutritionists like us. Talk about or like what you're talking about. I'm tremendously Yes, exactly So that and this whole thing about diabetes? Why is that also important? We just loaded up the questions for you, Dr Badly, So welcome to the show, and we'll just turn it over to you Let you talk for the next hour. How's that? Really? I'd really appreciate being invited you to speak with you both today because this is such an important topic that have food. It packs heart disease, and there's so many myths out there. I think your first question if I heard it right is why are we over focusing on cholesterol? And not on more important respect her like blood sugar? I think part of it is we've been Phone into this trap of What is what things? Can we track with lab tests and treat with the drug? Because it's easy. I think the average position things getting people to change. What they eat is harder than writing a prescription. But the reality is what you eat is far more beneficial to you, then what those prescriptions can provide, So I'm not anti Staten. My goal is people wouldn't need to take a statin if they eat the right food most of the time and blood sugar. When you sugar coat your proteins, they burn up more quickly. It's like putting gas on wood and put it in the fire. So Omar blood sugar livers or even mildly elevated that has a much bigger impact on her risk for growing black and having a heart attack, stroke or death. Then our cholesterol does. I mean, it's a really important thing. So cholesterol isn't not important, but it's not nearly as important his blood sugar and several of their first factors like blood pressure, and probably even the gut. Microbiome is more might be more important than our cholesterol. So Dr Massively, you know, you just said It's just even if the blood shirt is elevated a little bit now. I don't know what people that are listening. Think about that. I know we think about it. But out there I see so many come people that come in now for consultations and they're there in that pre diabetic there up on that upper end a pre diabetic. Range and they don't seem to be concerned about that. We're concerned. You're right to be concerned. We don't because even a mild Oh, you know, the cut off for normal is 100 but nineties actually, quite a bit better than a hundreds of year. 100. You're not safe. If you're 99, you could be far better off by dropping your level. You know? So when I think about it, the number one cause for heart disease is mildly elevated Blood sugar, and the number one cause for dementia is mildly Evel elevated blood, sugar and I, you're right. Most people are not aware of that. So I think you know, go at. I say that one more time because people just don't understand that That is what causes plaque build up and And probably, you know, blockages. So because they don't understand this blood sugar thing at all. I think hearing it from you. Maybe they'll listened. So I'm asking you to say it one more time. Well, mildly elevated blood sugar is the number one cause for heart disease..

How Poor Food Choices Lead to Depression

"I'm caroline hudson and a registered and licensed citation for many years and over these years. I have seen firsthand the impact. The foods people eat have on their body and of course their brain health so last week car us started the show with a great quote from dr. Alan are gay. He's the author of nutritional medicine. That's really a science nutrition reference book for physicians and healthcare practitioners. Here's what he wrote. And i quote big macs lead to zantac which leads to prozac so if you jin tier that quote last week i'm going to go into a little more detail about that. So eating big macs making poor food choices. Time and time again often leads to digestive problems gastrointestinal problems which will most likely require some kind of digestive medication. such as an tech or prior lasek. Nexium practice said. Tom's you know we all hear about those right. So taking any of these digestive medications often leads to an inability to break down or digest your protein and that's going to result in a deficiency of amino acids and you need amino acids to actually make neuro transmitters. Those are those you know. Feel good brain transmitters especially serotonin and deficiency of serotonin can actually bring on depression and may eventually bring about a need for an anti depressant. Prescription like prozac. So being a dietitian again for over years. I've had the opportunity to observe the impact that process food diet has had on the decline of people's health both the health of their body and the health of their brain

"We have an interesting and I believe a very important topic. Going to talk about how to lose weight without dieting. And I bet some of you are saying to yourself. Well, that's not possible. Well, think of it this way. Did you need a special diet to gain weight? That's the funny way to look at it isn't it is we didn't need a special diet. Did you say to your friends? I'm gonna eat these brownies. Chocolate chocolate covered Carmel's my favorite white mocha coffee. A drink to gain. I'm gonna drink and eat this way to gain weight. Of course not. I'm quite certain you didn't tell your friends that at all or thinking you're in your own brain. You know, this is what I'm gonna do to gain weight. Now that I have your attention, I'll introduce myself. I'm Melanie Beasley. I'm a registered dietitian, and I've had a variety of nutrition type jobs over the past 20 years. Including jobs. They required me to put clients on weight loss diets, even liquid fast diets. I know from research that 500 calorie weight loss diets will lead to a slower metabolism and to binge eating. Let's face it, You're pretty darn miserable on those. Absolutely Ah, person really just can't sustain 500 calorie diet for very long. It's not realistic. So, um, Possibly you could do this for a few months. Um and you'll people do drop the way but because our body is so intelligent, it doesn't allow us to continue the starvation. Mode, so it's kind of madness. So eventually we fall off the diet and then usually we'll start binging and overeating. Ah, 500 calorie diet is not Long term weight management plan and joining us this morning. And this discussion is Caroline Hudson. Just jump right in. Caroline. I know you have many years of experience as a dietitian and working with a variety of clients. What have you found to be true about long term weight loss and management. And did you ever work for back in the day like I did with the liquid fast or something like that? Well, I used to put people on those low fat because that's what we learn like, way back in the day, right? So good morning, everyone. Nice to be here in studio with you, Melanie. I'm Caroline Hudson. And I've been a dietitian for a very long time. In fact, probably over three decades and I've been Personally, even on that roller coaster ride of what we tell people they should and should not eat. You lose weight. You know, Sometimes the advice like I just said, was eat low fat. Then it switched to eat high fat, more like taquito type thing. And a few years ago, it was all about eating carbs, right Eating carbs. Now what Zamora about low carb. Eating on guy. Really? We don't use the word diet. In our practice at nutritional wait and Wells. It's It's more about just healthy eating. I think Diet implies it's temporary thing. Yes, exactly. And when can it be done? No one can compete on. Well, we tell our clan's no, No, no, no. This is the way you should be eating for good health, not just for weight man wanted to be doable for people. Yes. So you know you've got to retrain yourself properly, right? Really Reframe how we how we sea food? Because I think a lot of this dieting what it does, is it It distorts our relationship with food, and that's unfortunate because food is to nourish and it could be pleasurable along the way With what we eat. It doesn't have to be. You have to be miserable. So we're a nation of people who are undernourished and over fell absolutely well, said their mail. About two third of adults are either overweight or obese, and it's interesting to know But the weight loss industry is now worth 72 billion with a B. Dollars. So kind of crazy. That's ah lot. People are desperate. And so they're being taken advantage of. I feel on and a lot of the other places that do the weight loss are doing things like the liquid diets or some of them are, you know you buy the food and and have you have to have their program And that definitely is kind of goes against everything. That we say, you know, learn how to eat properly eat real food. This is long term, It goes back to that relationship with food and just being able to get what you need from the grocery store without breaking the budget. Well, interesting. You should say the grocery store because thinking back to early days, you know, I worked with some indigenous people in northern Canada. And they didn't worry about losing weight. You know, As a dietitian, I concentrated on helping them eat enough food with the focus on eating foods that supported their overall health. Foods that support their teeth, Foods of support there chop joints and support their heart and support their brain. So it's what you'd call real food, right. Real nutrition, not dieting to lose weight. I concentrated on teaching people to eat more of the good foods and in the north. A lot of the indigenous tribes up there still were hunting when I was working up there so wonderful, really, so they were eating off of the land. So we teach people how to eat nutrient dense foods to support their overall health, which in turn, of course, supports your metabolism. As as you said earlier. Your metabolism or your body is really, really smart. If you only give it 500 calories it's going to slow down. Who support that 500 calories, trauma to the body. It is so this is really what we do at nutritional waiting well, us. We help teach our clients how to eat to support their health. And many times once our clients fix some of their health problems. What happened exactly. I think it's it's the body knows what to do. Oh, they also fix their weight problems once they fix their health problems, you know, Caroline, and that's so true. It brings to mind I have a client. And she came to me and her focus was her doctor told her. I need to get your a onesie down. Well, they once see is just a value that shows Whether or not your blood sugars in a normal range, and hers was very high, which indicated that her blood sugar's had been high for a period of time. And so, her doctor said. I can't perform this knee replacement on you until you're a onesie is down. So that was her focus. When she came to see me, That's what we focused on. So we did get her a one seed down. We did get her blood Sugar's Within normal. She was able to have her knee surgery, and she healed beautifully from it. Here's what happened as we focused on her overall health or a once he came down or blood sugar came down and she could reach her goal of her surgery. All of her other values really improved her cholesterol and she dropped £50.50 pounds, well, pounds and she's and she feels fabulous. So you weren't focusing on wait? No. If we focus on health, like I said, that is primary goal and everything else falls into alignment. Absolutely great story. Yeah, so listeners Think about this. When did you start dieting to lose weight? If you're a long time listener, you may remember Nell calls her weight loss story is wonderful. Several years ago, Nell lost £90 eating real food, which is what we're talking about today. Several years later, she's still known £90 less and today I want to touch on some key information about Nelle story. Now grew up in a family who ate a lot of processed foods, bagels, donuts, fast foods, chips and soda. All the foods that come from a factory, not the farm. Several of her family members struggled with extra weight higher than normal blood sugars and at age 12 nails mother took her to a group Weight loss Diet program. Trying to be a good mom trying to help Mel out and now dieted all summer and lost weight, But in a few months, she gained it all back and more. The focus. At these diet programs was restricting calories and not about eating real food and changing lifetime habits..

"Good morning. Carolyn it's good to be here with you today and my name. is joanne. right out. And i've been a registered and licensed i- titian for more than thirty years. I worked at courage center for about twenty five years before i came to nutritional weight and wellness so i worked with many clients who were suffering from depression and today i work with many clients were experiencing peri menopause or menopause and they are experiencing a different type of depression so the common thread of all types of depression is the foods you eat can affect your depression and you know the thirty years ago. Nobody was connecting food choices or diet to depression. They weren't connecting food choices to a lot of things right. A lot of people still don't. Yeah so i really agree with joanne. So back then when we both started our careers right wasn't anyone who is connecting. What people eight depression so good morning everyone. I'm caroline hudson and joanna. And i have a couple of things in common. I've also been a registered and licensed citation for more than thirty years and as dietitians over the years. We have both seen extreme swings in nutrition advice. I think back to extreme. Yeah so everything from telling people that eggs are bad for you right well and i still hear that from many of my clients because the doctors are still telling them that some doctors. Yeah telling them that they should now. Oh yeah it's okay. Have several eggs weekly to support your brain function. So in recent years researchers found that eggs from hans <hes>. That rome out in the pasture grass and worms that those eggs contain a special fat. That helps your brain function better. That fat is one of the omega. Three fatty acids called d. h. a. So this is also found in breast milk and from algae that eat fish. So that's one of the reasons way. Breastfeeding is so important. Yes absolutely and you may notice with those eggs that are have come from pastured. Eggs that <hes>. Pastured chickens that the yoke is orange. Yeah they'll added a deeper color. Yes yes and that's a sign of a really good egg so you may want to remember that fact so today we will focus on the brain and the relationship between depression and your diet so recently you may have seen the following headlines. Depression triples in the us adults amid covid nineteen stressors. I can so believed that this has been a very stressful time for everyone <hes>. So this was reported because of the findings <hes>. In a study published in the journal of the american medical association this study found that twenty eight percent of adults reported having symptoms of depression since the start of corona virus <hes>. Pandemic compared to only eight and a half percent before covid nineteen. Well that's amazing. So that's a twenty percent increase anchor for at least four times as much. Yup that's a lot and during the stressful time. It is even more important to choose your food carefully to support your immune system and also to support your brain health in the past. Very few people connected their food choices to their brain health and depression and many people today understand what they eat can affect their risk of getting heart disease and most of them have also made the connection between their diet and type two diabetes and our longtime listeners. Now backed off what they eat to their aches and pains however very few people know the connection of their food choices to the deep to depression and their brain health. So when i asked clients experiencing depression what do i what do you eat. They often reply. I'm just not motivated. So i often eat anything. That's handy maybe fast food. Maybe junk food because i'm too tired to cook and i see that in front of me all the time. My son often. He does over from anxiety and depression often makes three corn dogs for breakfast. Oh boy and a pizza for dinner. So there's a lot of inflammation there. But he doesn't want to hear what i think about that and how it may affect him. Yeah i've been seeing long lines at the fast food places. I'm just i'm stunned. Every time i drive bri especially around the lunch hour or the dinner hour. I see these long lines of cars out into the street from the drive thru brazi. Well and it's just not you know about what's happening with with. We see so many people in that age range that are really kind of living on fast exactly so one of my clients shared that she basically lives on coke every day and grabs food at the nearest fast food place and her diet is totally lacking in nutrients so the nutrients these are needed for her brain function and her basically is made up of inflammatory and damaging foods full of sugar and of course those refined oils remember those oils. We are brain as a lot of fat so we don't want that oil wells in our diet and many food chemicals and food is. This is often that type of diet that many people have lived on for years. And it's a diet totally void of critical nutrients for brain function <hes>. So i like to compare it to this. You know if you don't put gasoline in your car. You're driving down the highway and what's going to happen. You're going to run out of gas. And i you know it starts to sputter a little bit and then it slowly dies because it no longer has any gas in the tank so the same thing actually happens with our brain only we can call it fatigue and depression when we're out of gas right so it's just amazing. It is amazing and that's a really good analogy so it's so true in again in the past. The cause of depression was thought of. I remember learning this. When i was occurred center listening to in services about the topic it was a biochemical problem was a biochemical imbalance or maybe it was a genetic problem or even that the depression was emotionally wooded such as having a poor childhood but not surprising to us. Is that many studies now have found. Poor nutrition plays a key role. Not only in the onset of depression but also the severity of the depression. Plus the length of time. The depression will go on so currently because of the extra stress. We are living with dude kobe. Nineteen it's really important to feed our brain the key nutrients your brain needs to counter. Act your current stress. So if you don't understand what your brain needs to avoid depression. How can you possibly achieve and maintain good brain functioning and be free of depression. So what are some of those brain nutrients it may surprise you that these nutrients come from food and not medication.

So the new trance these air needed for her brain to function. And her diet basically is made up of inflammatory in damaging food's full of sugar. And, of course, those refined oils. Remember those oils. We are brain is a lot of fat, so we don't want bad oils in our diet, and many food, chemicals and food dies. This is often the type of diet that many people have lived on for years. And it's a diet totally void off critical nutrients for brain function s O. I'd like to compare it to this. Get out. If you don't put gasoline in your car, you're gonna be driving down the highway. And what's gonna happen? You're gonna run out of gas. At first, You know, it starts to sputter a little bit, And then it slowly dies because It no longer has any gas in the tank. So the same thing actually happens with our brain on Lee. We can call it fatigue and depression when we're out of Yes, right. So it's just amazing. It is amazing, And that's a really good analogy. So it's so true again In the past, the cause of depression was thought of, and I remember learning this when I was a Kurd center, listening to in services about the topic. It was a biochemical problem. Is a biochemical imbalance. Or maybe it was a genetic problem or even that the depression was emotionally rooted, such as having a poor childhood. But not surprising to us is that many studies now have found poor nutrition plays a key role not on Lee in the onset of depression. But also the severity of the Depression. Plus the length of time the Depression will go on so currently because of the extra stress we're living with due to covert 19. It's really important to feed our brain. The key nutrients your brain needs. To counter act your current stress, So if you don't understand what your brain needs to avoid depression, how can you possibly achieve and maintain good brain functioning and be free of depression? So what are some of those brain new trance? It may surprise you that these nutrients come from food and not medication. So Joanne, it's just about time for it is break so You are listening to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional wait and.

"And having a healthy snack at work is extremely helpful for preventing those late afternoon energy dips. Next thing you know, you're you want to run to the coffee shop and get a sugary beverage or you're dipping into that candy bowl that one of your co workers has. So it'll save you from those two things. That stuff. Those air familiar stories that's for sure. They love that idea with a three part three compartment container. It's kind of like a healthy grown up version of Lunchables. Yes, Yeah, I just thought of another idea. I've really been into olive tapenade lately. So that could be the healthy fat. Put some of that on the cucumber slices or wide strips of bell peppers and have a hard boiled egg on the side. You've got a little protein, a little fat in a little car. Oh, yeah, that sounds delicious. And I have a quick lunch option. I like to have a lot of quick lunch options available. So what I do on the weekends is I will make a large pot of soup or stew. And then part of that soup is going to use for that meal. So maybe that's my Sunday night meal. And then I put part of it end directly into my lunchbox that I'm going to take on Monday or Tuesday for the upcoming week and then the rest. I'm gonna freeze for future lunches. Yeah, I like to do that, too. I will free soup and smaller glass containers. I like to save salsa jars because they are perfect to cup size. And yes, I get many questions about this. You can freeze in glass containers Just don't feel them all the way up to the top, or they will crack. And then I also let them cool quite a bit before I put him in the freezer as well. So you wanna leave about a half interest so Um, just to make sure that that cracking doesn't happen. Different taking stoop to work the next day. If it's been frozen, what I'll do is I'll just pop it out of the freezer the night before, let it saw in the refrigerator overnight. S so that's what I like to freeze my soup. Maryann, I know that you do it a little bit different way. Can you remind me how you do that? Yeah, I do. And you know what? I have had a couple of jars crack on me. So I'm I still It takes a little practice. But you know what? I did Freeze my soup and my stews in a deep muffin tin so that you know, they think there's only six compartments. It's kind of pop oversized, so it's actually sort of a perfect portion size. I love it. So after it's frozen, I'm gonna transfer those. I pop them out and I put them into a container or you could put them into a freezer bag. And Mark what you have in it. So you always know what you've got. So then, when I want soup, I simply take out that portion. And I'm gonna if I'm gonna have it at home. I'm gonna throw it into the You know my little saucepan and I'll heat it up or I'm gonna put it into a container that I'm gonna take for lunch and then I'll heat it up when I'm When I met work, so it's super easy. And the great thing is when you make soups and stews and freeze them like that. You're gonna have a lot of variety, which is often the complaint people say Oh, I just don't want to eat the same thing all week. So you might have chicken wild rice One day Chili and another are spicy coconuts to that I've talked about is delicious. So you have lots of options. And all of these recipes are found on our Web site wait and wellness dot com So I encourage your listeners to check those out. Yes, And for lunch is most of my clients myself included. And when I'm talking to my clients, I'm usually like envisioning my life, too, because I have a busy life. Most people do so we really need to keep things easy. So making those stupid ahead of time can be helpful. But we also need some ideas for the days when we don't have a stockpile of soup in the freezer. Yeah, Absolutely. And so my absolute go to for lunch is is leftovers. I happen to love leftovers. So when I make dinner, I even if it's on Lee for me, I always planned for leftovers. I like to cook once. Yeah. And eat many times because I always gonna be multiple meals in the week that I need Tolo. I need to take care of. So usually when I'm cleaning up my dinner, I take some of those leftovers and they go directly into the container. I'm going to take to work. Then the rest is going to go in the fridge. I'll cool it down. And then ultimately, I might. I'm might do that freezer technique with my muffin tin. And so that way I am not. Rushing in the morning when I'm trying to get out the door and I'm trying to put my lunch together and remember leftovers, with the exception of fish will last for seven days in your fridge, and that means Starting on the day that you made it. Then you have seven days and fish. I would say maybe you've got Maybe 3 to 4 days. Obviously, you don't want to. You don't want fish sticking around your fridge for too long. So so it looks like we are ready for another break. You are listening to dishing up nutrition.

What to Eat to Manage Anxiety

"Today? We want to start the show by reading a couple of statements from Dr Mark Kinds new book. It's called food. What the Heck should I cook? You may have heard of his other book food. What the heck should I eat now? He has one about cooking before we do that. I'll just quickly introduce myself and our topic. My name is Kara carper. I'm a licensed nutritionist. And I have a master's degree in holistic health and I'm a certified nutrition specialist. Today's topic is what to eat to manage anxiety. I know this topic very well. If anyone knows me you may know that I have struggled with anxiety but also it's because every day I work to practice what I'm eating to manage anxiety since the corona virus outbreak. It seems that nearly everyone's anxiety level is off the charts absolutely. It almost feels like our world has been turned upside down while it sort of has and people who are anxious before are now are there now. Highly anxious I would say. They're even scared definitely scared. I think there's a lot of fear worry and anxiety coin on and today we want to share some food and nutrition habits that will support your nervous system in your brain function. And we're also going to talk about some foods that might be interfering with calming your nervous system and your brain function so we have a lot of work cut out for us today and I would also I also want to introduce my wonderful co host. And we'll go ahead and get started. Caroline Hudson is with me. She's a registered and licensed Dietitian. She's a many years of experience working with clients of all ages and a variety of health issues. While good morning everyone you know. Also since the corona virus outbreak more and more people are concerned about trying to maintain a very strong immune system in Dr Mark. Hyman new book food. What the heck should I cook he wrote? Science confirms that Poor Diet can create poverty violence and social injustice due to its effect on behavior. Isn't that interesting? That's very interesting. I don't think a lot of people think of food in that way as as having any influence on those aspects right behavior so it is clear that each of us has a different immune system and our daily food. Choices are a key factor in maintaining a strong immune function boyd. We ever need this information today. Don't we so? There are several possible reasons for having a lower functioning immune system so some of those reasons may be ongoing stress or eating a poor diet. Obesity lack of sleep. Oh I don't know about you but I've been a little bit struggling with sleep or lack of physical activity. All gyms are close so we gotta get out there and do some do some good activities. Right don't walking at least so or not eating sufficient amounts of protein. What we're trying to say is to have a strong immune system you need to address all of these aspects of your health. Your immune function is so much more than just taking a little extra vitamin C. Isn't that true? I mean if you're not sleeping and you're eating poorly you're highly stressed and not able to exercise or you have to hear your gym clothes and you haven't figured out another routine taking vitamin C. Is kind of. It's kind of pointless you kind of you can't supplement your way out of a guy and lifestyle right. Yeah I think one of Dr Hammond's most powerful in meaningful statements in his book was what we put on our fork at every meal either has the power to transform our health and the economy reverse climate change and environmental damage and help reduce poverty violence social injustice and more and you know really the caroline again. That's a new thought. But how we how we eat really affects our brain chemistry our moods or behaviors and just kind of how we go about our life. Yeah I'd like put at what we put on our full. Yeah right right really should be thinking about at every single time. You put your phone to something. Am I helping? My Body is supporting my body. And my brain hurting it

"Nutritional weight and wellness I want to share an interesting fact from the American cancer society excess body weight is linked to it eight percent of all the cancers the American cancer society reported that the link between obesity and cancer risk is clear actually excess body fat increases your risk for several types of cancers including colorectal cancer breast uterine kidney pancreatic and oesophageal cancers good morning listeners I am Melanie Beasley a registered and licensed dietitian because I had breast cancer several years ago I'm always on the lookout for the latest research about cancer prevention and the treatment joining me as our co hosts this morning is Caroline Hudson who's also a registered and licensed dietitian and has been working in the field of nutrition for a very long time she has a wide range of employment opportunities and at first clientele I think she's very wise checked out with a variety of health issues and fairly recently about three weeks ago Caroline had hip replacement surgery because she wants to keep up with her mother who likes the Lake Superior trails and I forgot to mention that her mother is ninety two years old and loves to hike I think that's fantastic I kind of want to be her yeah she loves the kayak to crazy good Caroline you had hip surgery just three weeks ago yes yep and you're already back to work you're looking good looking spry how did you recover so quickly yeah you know I alright I went back to work almost all of the earlier this week so just a little over two weeks in recovery so and I I feel like I'm doing great I can even walk without my cane if I'm not out on those icy icy patches of roadway or whatever but Minnesota is a challenge yeah yeah but we have a great morning today don't waste too hopefully all of our listeners here Minnesota will be able to enjoy this weekend so good morning everyone good morning Melanie good morning to all of our listeners and I'm really happy to be here this morning you know I I think I recovered really well because I was even more diligent with the way I eat on more than normal you know I'm usually pretty pretty good but I didn't you know yeah right right I don't have many processed foods a denomination a gar I really limited by carbs because the carbs gluten things like baton a pasta and all of that they really cause inflammation in my body in many people's body I ate a lot of protein and a lot of vegetables and of course really high quality protein and I upped my supplements I started taking more omega threes filmmaker threes help decrease that inflammation I took more magnesium and I added the injury and surgical support formula to my regimen and formula contains really crucial micronutrients nutrients like vitamin C. the B. vitamins zinc vitamin D. glucosamine and MSM and it supports the cellular health joint health cartilage tendons and ligaments all of those things that are important my hip surgery I mean they're they're like cut Mandy you wouldn't cut it up you need all of those things the other thing is I made sure I got adequate sleep I even took a little time off work before the surgery and had a little bit of the vacations so I'd just really concentrated on me and I we were talking about you know all the medications that they give you in the hospital and I thought it was fascinating that you were saying they came in with I. anti nausea you're like nope I'm glad they came in with stool softeners nope I'm good they came in with Phil and that is what is so expressive they didn't think I could too much because they're already broken open the blister packs or whatever they're in and they said well now we have to throw me away and I said well that's OK just thrown away I don't I don't need that I don't know I love that so both let's go back to topic both cancer and obesity are serious health risks let's look at some data about the increased rate of obesity the national adult obesity rate in two thousand sixteen was almost forty percent this is even sadder that child obesity rate was just under twenty percent nationwide so obesity has increased by seventy percent over the past thirty years for adults and children eighty five percent easy how what does that mean in reality it means four out of ten adults over the age of twenty are considered obese Caroline that's just okay then the thought of that as best we can are we headed out where we had it and you know we see it every day but you know it's really scary to the American cancer society estimates that forty eight hundred new cancer cases are diagnosed each day each day that's nearly five thousand cases daily so the lifetime probability of being diagnosed with cancer is slightly more than one out of three people wow well that's really scary so researchers found that about five percent of cancers in men and about eleven percent of cancers in women can be attributed to excess body weight however the connection between weight and cancer can be quite complicated so some studies suggest that the risk for some cancers appear to appear to be more for people who are overweight as a child or as a young adult so I think this is really alarming because as you just said over the past thirty years the obesity rate for children has increased by eighty five percent so where are we headed when will we now any and you know I love I love where we're going in our society when it comes to decreasing fat shaming and decreasing the all of the the love your body as it as it is and I love that however we have to look a little deeper in are you look putting your health at risk because that's really what's important here loving yourself is fantastic and dumb what we want to look at what is the risk factors attributed to obesity and when I think back to my elementary school days it really was very rare to have more than really one overweight child in class but today teachers tell us that many children in each classroom are overweight or obese and you have to ask does this mean as these children are aging that they're at a higher cancer risk I could go very high so that that's the scary place yeah it really is so listeners you might be wondering so how does obesity actually cause cancer so let me see if I can explain this a little bit so we all understand the risk are you are taking if you're carrying extra body fat you know many people who are overweight frequently stop looking in the mirror you know that's not very comfortable right or they refused to be weighed or they you know they they won't weigh themselves and that won't weigh themselves at the doctor I don't want that lecture yeah no of course not or maybe these people stop shopping for clothes until they lose some weight I meant like I hear that I'm not going to shop because you know I need to lose some weight and if we followed the exactly but do they lose the weight unfortunately that just doesn't happen and as dietitians you know we've heard it all right now but I don't think most people realize that extra body fat is really increasing their risk for cancer perhaps to really seriously I understand about losing weight many people who are overweight or obese have to realize the results from these decades now of research isn't falling millions of people and this research clearly shows the link between being overweight or being obese and getting cancer so what I want you to realize is that being overweight or obese is much more serious than just how you look how you look in the mirror of course of course once again how could be in a way because cancer let's look at that bio chemistry for better understanding for listeners fat cells make extra hormones more growth factors and inflammation and when you have extra fat especially around the liver pancreas heart and kidneys the.

"Thought ever crossed your mind? What do my cholesterol numbers really mean? I think many people have been told if their cholesterol number is above two hundred they were doomed to and they were going to have a heart attack. So today, we want to clear up some of those misconceptions and help you understand the real meaning of your cholesterol numbers. I'm Caroline Hudson. And I'm a registered and licensed dietitian. I graduated from my nutrition program in Canada over thirty years ago. I'm not even gonna say how many more than thirty at this point. So I guess you could call me a very seasoned dietitian. Actually, I prefer people. Think of me as having a lot of life experience, and a genuine understanding that changing your eating habits are really doesn't come easy to the majority of people throughout the years. I've seen many diets recommended for weight loss end for heart health, and those are no longer considered safe today. So one of those diets that is now considered unsafe for most people is that low fat and high carb diet joining me today as our co host this morning is JoAnne right out. Who is also a registered and licensed dietitian and also graduated from her nutrition. Program many years ago. How many years ago has it been for you? Yes, you're right. Many years ago more than thirty just like you. So I also have a lot of experience helping people with their nutrition over the years and Carolyn you mentioned that in the past twenty five to thirty years, we've seen so many different diet recommendations for both weight loss and heart health, and for many of you. I'm sure you were told to eat low fat and high carb foods to lower your cholesterol numbers. Unfortunately, we have found that really didn't work even as a dietitian for many years. I was also told that low fat high carb eating would lower my cholesterol tried to implement that. But in reality, my numbers continually climbed on that type of eating plan. So if you're confused we totally understand I truly believed in the low fat and high carb diet. Back then and was shocked when my cholesterol numbers kept climbing. Yes. So today, we really want to clear up. Some of those myths and misconceptions about cholesterol and help you understand what those numbers really mean. That's right. And also good to know by the by the way, when I did change my diet and started eating real natural fats, and then cut out the bread pasta. Some of the high whole grains, my cholesterol levels began to lower. So I was able to get off my statin drug, then I had more energy fewer aches and pains. So listeners if you have a copy of your blood test results or you can go online right now to see your test results on pull them out that pull out the one that's labelled, your lipid panel, this the your lipid panel measures, your total cholesterol, triglycerides level, your HDL level, and your LDL level and often there's a ratio in there. And that would be your total cholesterol to your HDL level, this ratio provides kind of a general risk factor for your doctor. And if it's greater than five you're at high risk. And if it's lower than three point five, you're basically at no risk, but cholesterol is complicated. And our goal today is to help you better understand your numbers. That's right. And to make sense of these numbers. One of the first numbers. I always look at to help my clients evaluate the risk factor is the triglycerides number. So is your triglycerides number in the three hundreds. Or is it one fifty or is it under seventy five as we recommend. So it's really interesting to note that high triglycerides levels are an independent risk factor for heart disease, and this is really important. So it bears repeating high triglycerides levels are a risk factor for heart disease. So if you have a high triglycerides level. And a low HD L level you are at a much higher risk of heart disease. So let's explore this a little bit more. That's right. So again, look at your triglycerides level, and we would like to see that at about seventy five or lower. So people ask this question, very often. What exactly are triglycerides? Oh, yeah. We hear that a lot. We get that question. So triglycerides are the most common fats found in your body, and they mainly come from eating carbohydrate foods. Yes, triglycerides are primarily made from processed carbs sugar and alcohol, which is then stored as fat. That's right. And that's really important to repeat. So I'd like to repeat that one more time triglycerides are the storage fat produced when you eat processed carbs or sugar or alcohol. Yes. So I always say to my clients sugar sugar sugar, right Rico, scarves, right, right? Abnormally elevated levels of triglycerides in your blood indicate an increased risk of inflammation. Atherosclerosis and even diabetes. So your triglycerides number is, very important. We again, we recommend your triglycerides on number to be seventy five or lower. Yes. And at nutritional weight and wellness we have helped clients reduce their clue triglycerides number from over a thousand or over three thousand to well below one hundred by just helping them stop eating those muffins or bagels, maybe their pizza and also to cut out soda, and those fancy high sugar coffee drinks, I think that is one of the easiest of the of the lipid levels that we're looking at to reduce quickly. Yeah. Yeah. That's the one. I always go after for example, because most people understand that piece. You know, when it comes to all of the other things all of the fats. They kinda get. Confused about that. But sugar, you know, we can we can cut that out pretty easily. So in our weight and wellness series. We share a client's story that I'd like to share with you. Now, so many people believe that a vegetarian lifestyle is a healthy one. But it's certainly not for many of us when this client was I seen her triglycerides level was well over eleven hundred remember we said, it should be below seventy five right, right? Are. He was practicing this vegetarian way of eating for and that was far too many carbs for her specific biochemistry. So we changed her diet and literally within weeks her triglycerides level drop below Andre well within the safe range. So if your triglycerides level is over one fifty it is time to reduce those carbs, and perhaps even make an appointment with one of us are one of our other nutritionists, you know, I see clients in our Eden prairie office and JoAnne. See his clients in Weiser, data and maple grove. And when when our clients cut their carbon take they typically have a great side effect. Guess what that is? They also get to lose weight. That's always exciting. Aside side benefit of that. So it's almost time for our first break. I can't believe it. It's always that fast. Right. Right. So you are listening to dishing up nutrition today Joanna, and I want to help you understand the numbers on your lipid panel. So we've started out talking and discussing the importance of maintaining a triglycerides level, preferably around seventy five or lower. And we talk about what triglycerides are and why high triglycerides level levels are a risk factor for heart disease. We also want to help you understand how your diet, and what you eat and drink affects your triglycerides level. And we still where and we will be discussing the all those the lipoprotein HDL and the LDL. So understanding your cholesterol, really is complicated. And unfortunately have just one hour, and that's nowhere near enough time to cover all of the facts. But it is enough time for us to share. How important these numbers are? So get your test results out and follow along with.

"Welcome to dishing up nutrition with license nutritionists and dietitians from nutritional weight and wellness. We explain the connection between what you eat. And how you feel. Stay tuned for practical realize solutions for healthier living through real food nutrition down. You got to make the mom last just to dishing up nutrition. I'm Melanie Beasley. I'm in studio this morning with Caroline Hudson. We are both registered and licensed dietitians with many years of experience helping people with their nutrition and their weight loss. I personally have about thirty years of experience as a dietitian, and I've worked in a lot of different types of settings part of my career was working in the Colorado state penitentiary as a dietitian, and I also did a lot of my training in the navy as a dietitian. So I have indeed worked with a wide variety of clientele. And Caroline you received your training in Canada. Right, right. Yeah. Yeah. I went to school in Toronto Ontario. So I I loved my my education there, it was kind of different from some of the nutrition programs here, it was very hands on and we actually did things like this like doing here. In studio today. So we got to practice, you know, speaking in front of people and giving a lot of presentations and doing some radio work as well. So so yeah, I went to school in Canada. And I actually spent a number of years working as a dietitian not just in remote villages like way up in here. Stories, but I also worked in large metropolitan areas. I went to school in Toronto. So I actually worked on a number of years in Toronto as well. So I too have seen a wide variety of clients with unique and varied diets. And I think we still see a wide variety of clients. Oh, yeah. Different places. It's always interesting to hear their stories and between the two of us. We've counseled a lot of clients struggling to lose weight. And I just going to say, I don't know if a lot of people realize that we do a lot of Skype and telephone work. So you know, I have a client in India and one in the Channel Islands off the coast of England. So, you know, we talk to people all over the world. And I I have one in England. And I just love listening to her talk so twenty my southern accent and her English accent. We we have a time. But it's a good time. According to the National Institute of health three out of four men. Are either overweight or obese and two out of three women are either overweight or obese roughly twenty one percent of adolescence are overweight? That's startling as an it. And today we're going to be talking about balanced eating for weight loss. So here's the more startling news. It is predicted that by twenty twenty three fourths of Americans will be overweight, that's a lot most people and less inner you're like a sumo wrestler or something we want to be carrying around that extra weight on our body. And we certainly don't want to be buying large or close every time we go to the store. So generally, I've found that most people want to know how to eat to avoid that weight gain. And they want to know what is the best diet for them to follow. You know, Carolyn I find that many of my clients. They're so tired of hearing the word diet that as soon as they? Here that they sort of shut down their eyes glaze over and they stopped listing. So I try to never use that word when I'm talking to them because they already know that low calorie low fat diets just don't work for long term weight loss. And we also agree that diets don't work. They're just a temporary solution to a long term problem. You know, unfortunately, the reality is most people today continue to gain weight. So I want to repeat what Caroline said. It's predicted that in just one year three fourths of Americans will either be overweight or obese at Melanie. I wanna go back to that word diet. We'd have to. I really hate that word because that's not what we do at nutritional weight and wellness, and I tell that, you know, to my clients very first thing this is not about a diet. This is how we're supposed to be eating. This is you know, a way of life, you know, and we want to drop that guilt because I think the word diet automatically, you know, imposes some guilt on people because they're restricting what they eat. So you're so right. You know, any clients come in completely guilt ridden and shame based. Yeah. Exactly. So we kind of lift that hopefully lift that guilt. And sometimes it takes a little while, you know, because we teach people that you get to eat. Yeah. And you get to eat healthy food, and it's supposed to taste good. And you're supposed like to eat to be fun to yet your meals. Yes. So I bet you're kind of thinking. Why is the continual increase in wit? Why is there an increase in that weight gain and obesity, and it's continuing on and on so previous previously and on many of our other dishing up nutrition shows, we've talked about a variety of reasons for that weight gain. There are a number of lifestyle and environmental factors that can certainly slow down people's metabolism which can lead to that weight gain. So it's a lot more complex than just those calories. In and calories out. We really need to think more about the quality of those calories. The quality of the food that we're eating so many clients have Toby that they stopped getting their annual checkups even because they didn't even want to step on the scale. And and then of course, what are they what happens they have that guilt? Again, they're told oh you need to. Lose weight. Oh, you're OB's. Or, you know, you're definitely need to lose at least ten or twenty or thirty pounds. And that induces that guilt. Right. So again, helping people maintain a healthy weight is very complex, and especially in this day and age when we've got so many different foods, especially those processed foods to choose from. And I I would say that we have a lot of other things in life. We feel guilty about food should be simple and shoe food should be just enjoyment nourishment, and it shouldn't be the source of shame. So on dishing up nutrition, we've addressed many of those complex reasons just a couple of weeks ago. We shared information about how stress can lead to excess cortisol being released resulting in weight gain, many people today are certainly under chronic ongoing stress when you agree between traffic caregiving is a big one these days. Poor food and eating habits all creates stress and think of stress each of you have compared to the stress our grandparents had back in the nineteen forties. Yet remember that when you are under stress stress such as being stuck in traffic which like on the way to the studios morning. I love it. There was no traffic. You know, if if you're late for an important meeting or something those adrenal glands, they released that cortisol and cortisol is a fat making hormone. So I think that's really important for people to understand. They don't, you know, they don't connect stress with weight gain, the ongoing stress at a job or at a workplace that you really aren't enjoying very much is going to eventually add on that weight, and because of the cortisol in that fat making hormone, we know you can't avoid some of those stressful situations, but we like to teach our clients how to eat to manage that stress better. So things like coffee and sugar that in. Increases your stress, gaping meals increases stress, and that leads to the court is all and the weight gain again, weight loss and weight maintenance maintenance are very complex and most people need help with managing all of those different lifestyle factors, which is all part of nutritional counseling. So let's look at some other factors you need to consider when you're losing weight. You know, and I I always tell my clients, especially ones in nutrition for weight loss classes that we like to to really cater what they're eating too though to that personal individual because they are complex and their individualized. So it's really important. We've listened to them right? We recently had a show that focused on how refined vegetable oils such as corn oil soybean oil cottonseed oil and canola oil can all lead to weight gain, those fats interfere with the functioning of your cell membranes.
