What is my diet and nutrition have to do with incontinence or lack of bladder control? Control well, many of our clients have said to us I thought my problem was structural problem and only doctor could help me certainly not a Dietitian nutritionist I know by UCAR, but they fill out a lengthy <hes> wellness form to come in for us. Look at in. That's of the questions on there, so some of you may also be thinking the exact same thing, so it may be surprising to know that. A number of our clients ask us for help with incontinence, which is defined as involuntary loss of urine. But car you and I were talking about. It's more than just you know. Expand a little bit on what you were saying that you had listened to that matter. I was just listening to a doctor. She was a urologist and she was just discussing kind of the criteria for diagnosing incontinence. And you know it's the involuntary loss, but it's also the frequency that urgency <hes> you know I have to get to the. The bathroom right away. I can't wait also night. You know nighttime frequency is one of the diagnosis as well you know if people are getting up two or more times per eight, that would fall under incontinence as well. Yes, and it affects it affects sleep which we've talked about before. Definitely yeah, and because continents is such a very personal topic, it can also be rather embarrassing to a significant number of people. Many, people feel uncomfortable talking about it even to their doctor. And when we bring it up I, think they they're almost relieved to have someone to discuss that issue with <hes>. For that reason, we wanna get into the topic. Get it up and out in the open as a dietician WHO's helped numerous people overcoming continents I, believe your food choices can work magic on the symptoms of incontinence, coronary artery and talk about the foods that are certainly considered bladder irritants. We will also talk about foods that helped strengthen and maintain certain key muscles that are necessary for bladder control.

That's probably not a surprise <hes> in reality in a one in four women over the age of eighteen will experience episodes of leaking urine, and and this is the statistic that Kinda got me.

And Stress Urinary incontinence that that's just kind of a data separate diagnosis, but kind of a subcategory that usually shows up. You know after childbirth, and after menopause for women, and then some prostate cancer treatment can also trigger incontinence for men, yes, and <hes> getting men to talk about it in clinic. I find too, that they're. They're happy to bring it up, but you have to bring it up I because people just assume well, this is just who I am. I'm getting older. This is my portion. That I have to deal with now. Not knowing that could, there can be some help well. Have you noticed the number of TV ads for disposable incontinent products? Now? Yes, I have some people. Call them adult diapers. I don't like that I. Think it's <hes>. In two thousand eighteen five billion dollars were spent on the purchase of incontinence products. The cost of these incontinence supplies can easily beat two hundred to three hundred per month. The National Association for Continents Reports that. The psychological cost of urinary incontinence can be depression. Isolation decreased self esteem and work related difficulties. Yeah I mean even the sleep piece to think about how lack of sleep. If you're getting up several times at night, you don't get that quality or length of sleep. That can affect mood that can affect work performance immune system, so it's you know it's a big issue. And why isn't continent so prevalent? Well one reason it could be from following a low fat, low calorie style of eating in addition to not eating enough protein, and often those will go together. And a lot of. We say women because I think a lot of women are. Wanting to lose weight and. They're working. They're trying to do this by going fat, free low calorie, and that automatically sort of cuts out a lot of protein in the Diet because if they're trying to avoid fat, you're. You're not getting a lot of protein so. Following a low fat, low protein diet has left some people with weak pelvic floor, muscles and thin fragile tissues in the urethra, so it's a lack of beneficial healthy fats, and then short changing the amount of protein that you're getting that could really have a direct influence on incontinence, and I always tell clients how important it is to eat. Sufficient amounts of beneficial healing fats I mean feel like we're always kind of trying to promote the healthy fats right now we are. We're trying to overcome decades of it is.

Here's the title all of our show. Today Stop Dieting to lose weight since the early nineteen fifties. We have just been inundated with this information information to eat. Low Fat Foods. Count calories eat low calorie and dieters are always told to kind of follow this approach and it's really lacking its first of all it's lacking in key nutrients and for a lot of people it can be like a starvation plan. So how did that workout not great because again more people are overweight and obese than ever before. So I'll introduce myself in. They my co-host. My name is Kara.

So you're the you're the Unicorn. Yeah we were just talking right UNICORNS. That's really what you've accomplished is amazing. And and you should be very very proud of yourself and maybe even you should be written up in a weight loss book I know you're a testimonial to our company. Absolutely maybe that's good enough now. I put my energy there so yeah I don't yeah. Thank you so much for that. That phenomenal intro Boost to my my ego this morning but I don't think being featured in a weight loss book is is necessary. I just want to you know for are you within the sound of my voice inspire you to give up dieting and eat real food several times a day to lose weight. That's a different message. Then you've probably heard this time of year no more starving yourself. It is a known fact that as we get older and I am getting older older our metabolism slows down more and more every year. I also know that eating protein several times a day boosts my metabolism for a few hours so I practice eating grass fed protein several times a day to keep that fire stoked to keep my metabolism fired up. Now I think our listeners would love to know what is and one of your biggest struggles maintaining the ninety pound weight loss. So I guess it's it's one thing and we'll get into a little bit later about the weight loss. Yeah but what is what is it like with the weight maintenance phase. Yeah we were just talking about this before or the show that the biggest struggle is not to get back into that. Dieting thought pattern which you would think after eight years of losing the weight and then keeping it off that I would have broken through that and I have but really that those. Those messages are very sticky for people because low calorie and and low fat eating slowdown. My metabolism and it's really challenging. I think this time of year to not see some of the ads coming out and you you know they're they're everywhere they're on facebook. They're on TV. That say you know we have the answer. Low Fat low calorie eating. But I want to tell you before I came to nutritional weight and wellness. I had many years of dieting and with each of those diets that are being advertised. Soul readily right. Now I did lose weight but I quickly gained that weight back and even more so I would get this quick hitting saying it was always twelve pounds for me so I would immediately start to feel better. Feel like my pants are getting better And it was within a few weeks or months that I would be heavier than before so I would get that quick hitting. Hey you know this is working and what was so cruel about what it is that it would come right back on as soon as I because what what they don't tell you is that you're losing water and you're losing muscle. Aw and be so frustrating when you have that you know first little bit of success and then it starts to stop and then and you start gaining and you start gaining more than before. So how did I gain that hundred ninety to one hundred pounds is because I would go on those diets and then I would gain you know twenty pounds More than before. So you do that. You know I say fifteen times and twenty seven my twenty five years of dieting. You know that extra twenty pounds ten twenty pounds at the end of each of those Yoyo. Diets is GONNA add up. Sure sure and and also we know just bio uh-huh chemically With all the training nutrition training that we've had that that really impairs metabolism kind of that the ups and downs the spikes and the losses awesome. Yeah right yes very very frustrating. Now how old were you when you first started dieting and then I mean you might have already answered this in your her in the last segment but did you lose any way like the very first time that you started dieting. Yeah and it was because I was twelve I could have done just about anything anything and and lost weight but that was the first year I went to weight watchers. I had to be I had to be Sponsored by somebody because I I was so young so my mom took me. I was desperate. I was coming into my eighth grade year and I was the Chubby kid so depressed and I did ED lose weight But I had a miserable summer and I actually just just recalled the story of being there used to be a kmart in Burnsville and we were my mom and I were walking into the Kmart and I had been you know really existing on Tuna with no Mayo just just plain tuna And Lettuce and really starving myself.

I was really taking that low calorie low fat message so dry tuna basically with dry lettuce And I was depriving myself. And then I that's where it began really so then you do that long enough and then you start to rebel. Your body starts to rebel and I gained all the way back.

Aw then which was the important biochemical fact that we teach in our nutrition for weight loss series which I am one of the teachers when you go on a low calorie salary low fat diet. It creates a stress response in your body. I mean think about that. I'm walking along and I drop over twelve thirteen the sad sad story and probably quite common still to this day. I would hope it wouldn't be but it's it's probably very common instill but really my body was telling me I don't have enough here to go on. Because of that stress response. The adrenal glands were releasing the hormone cortisol and that excess cortisol creates more insulin resistant. So that's what started all that insulin resistance in my body which which then you know initially lead to weight loss but then started showing up as belly. Fat so personally I don't want to create create that Cortisol response so now. I eat every two to three hours. And I'm not eating dry tuna on driverless. I know what I skip a meal or snack I gain weight because that court is all that when my blood sugars getting too low that cortisol response is going to help me to gain weight. Wait which is especially around the mid section eight that belly fat. Yeah and you would I think a lot of our longtime listeners have heard the term insulin salon resistance. Yeah we won't go into deep of a dive with that but insulin resistance just means that it's harder for your body to get the glucose into the cells out of the bloodstream and into the cells. So you're just more likely to gain weight to store fat. It's more difficult to lose weight. Yeah we have this great visual in one of the classes of your cells and there's locks padlocks all over the cells rights rate so if you think about it you're you're locking yourself cells. Those in nothing really gets in or out. That's you know making that happen. So essentially what was a lightbulb moment for me as when I was on these diets. It's my cells. Were locked up in that glucose that I was getting from my diet could not be used for energy. So he'll low energy. I felt you know fainting. Okay so he hit me of low energy right right

"This is brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness if you are listening, and you're a woman that's age thirty five or over or if you know someone who is I think you're going to really like our topic today because it's all about hormones as women. You know, it can be pretty tough when you experienced fluctuating hormones, and it seems like when we reach age thirty five to forty are hormone balance just kind of seems to go crazy mood swings. Become an everyday occurrence. We might not get a good night's sleep. The only way to feel comfortable is to wear pants that have an elastic waistband. You just kind of load up your closet with stretch pants and leggings to accommodate that expanding waistline. Are you thinking that is so true? Why is this happening? Well, today, we're going to discuss hormone balance after forty while working with many many women over the years we've found that their hormones often start to get out of balance and even mid to late thirties. So let's talk about what's happening to your body. What you can do to get your hormones back in balance. My name is Kara Harper. I'm a licensed nutritionist I have a master's degree in holistic health. I'm also a certified nutrition specialists, and I'm very excited to be joined by MARCY Vaske. She's also a licensed nutritionist and has a master's degree in clinical nutrition. Yes. Logan morning car. I'm so happy to be here. Once again in studio with you same here. Yeah. We always have a fun time. And especially today talking about this. Topic hormones, right? Yup. Saying that before the show. I know we weren't we kind of laughed about it. It's perfect for us. So for many women between the ages of thirty five to forty it. Is that time before we are entering menopause, and for some women their hormones are going crazy. I know my lovely hormones have been China mess with me. And so fortunately, I have a little knowledge in this area. So I've tried to get him back on track. But this time before menopause is called Perryman applies which can result in a stressful hormone fluctuating time, and that's hormonal balance is nice often, easy and can really make you feel like you're kind of out of control because you've never experienced the stuff before. So many women have not lived a lifestyle that supported maybe good hormone balance throughout their lives kind of setting themselves up for some rough years ahead. And as I mentioned earlier Peri menopause is the months and years before the start of menopause typically starts so. When a woman reaches her, mid thirties or forties. You're in you're in that Perryman apostle age. So for all those listeners out there who maybe are dealing with some type pants and mood swings. He might want to ask yourself. Am I gonna paramount Opas experiencing fluctuating hormones, and if I am what are some of these symptoms? So that I that I might experience. Well, Dr Sarah Gottfried, the author of the hormone care, she offers a quick little quiz of twenty questions in her book that indicates some of these symptoms. So I think we should dig in and help understand where many you know, where you know, how to play this hormonal game. Yeah. And we're not gonna go over all twenty. I guess if we had more time we would. But we picked the top five questions to share with you. So the first one is it's emotional instability. So are you sort of bursting into tears with, you know, there's really no reason at a moment's notice are you experiencing poor sleep, you might wake up and just sort of ruminate in the middle of the night and not be able to get back to sleep. Are you starting to have? Night sweats where you wake up so sweaty that you have to change your pajamas, and maybe even change your sheets, and then there's weight gain are you gaining weight especially around that midsection, and there's also the fifth. One is sudden forgetful nece, do you walk into a room knowing that you went in there for a reason? But you can't remember why or what you were looking for right? Probably people can relate to many of those. I would guess for sure. Drills. Yes. The night sweats. No fun. You know? So so some women describe Perryman oposite is a time in their life. When they feel everything is changing, and it's just beyond our control. So the question is what is colleague causing obvious changes? Right. So at about this time, it's when a woman's ovaries are becoming less active slowing down and preparing for the body to stop menstruating. We are getting ready to enter menopause. So because our little ovaries have decided to close up shop. He may start having some symptoms that you've never experienced before such as car was just talking about, you know, those sleep problems that weight gain around your middle or the mood swings. That don't make you much fun to be around. Right and wait game to maybe weight gain that doesn't seem related to your normal activity. Yeah, you're exercising. Same that you always have your pretty much eating the same. But all of a sudden, you have an extra five ten pounds around that midsection. Right. You know, oftentimes will have clients come in. And be like, I'm changed nothing. What is going on, you know? Yeah. Let's just say indicator of your pre could be definitely getting into Perryman Apaz for sure in addition to that expanding waistline and trouble sleeping. You also may have things like your hair starts thinning. Yeah. You might start feeling more irritable. You might have adult acne, which is fun right to have adult acne and you're starting to get wrinkles. I couldn't get any better. Gosh, you also may be experiencing more anxiety, and there can be a lot of other symptoms as well. There can be things like more sugar cravings. You could be having some digestive issues feeling a little bit more bloated having headaches. So. Especially like, you were saying the weight around the midsection or just the weight gain in general does seem to be the most kind of concerning or problematic for that. We come to see you for sure, you know, it's the first thing. Sometimes the first thing you notice because you're always thinking, why don't you know, you're looking at your stomach you just don't want that weight gain. Well, that's my people initially come in. And then you start asking them questions now. Like, oh, yeah. I guess I'm not really I am forgetting some things or my hair is kinda fending. You know, it's it's putting it all together. So, you know, we know now we know the symptoms of paramount applies, and we understand the ovaries are not working as well as they could be and our hormones are out of balance. So the two hormones that are causing are problem is estrogen and progesterone. And when the basic estrogen progesterone balance is disrupted that's when women and up with these symptoms. That's right. And you might be wondering what disrupts this estrogen progesterone balance? Honestly, there's a lot of things that can create this imbalance. But you know, if we're talking about nutrition eating a lot of processed carbohydrates and foods or beverages that contain sugar can certainly cause an imbalance of estrogen progesterone, and the reason that this happens is, you know, let's just say somebody has a bowl of cereal for breakfast with milk and a banana glass of orange juice the blood sugar. Is going to go up too high. We're gonna the pancreas is going to release insulin to bring that blood sugar level back down. And if that's happening day after day year after year too, much, insulin in the bloodstream is going to lead to too much estrogen in the body. That's right. So that's kind of how we get that imbalance of estrogen to protest thrown through nutrition. Exactly. And you know, mercy I used to be I mean, especially in college years, I'd say more high school in Cali. Yeah. I was kind of a pasta girl, you know. Oh, yeah. Lots of pasta bagels cereal. Process carbohydrates. But we were trying to deceive carbs in. No fat. Right. Exactly. That was my deal that was the era of everybody's eating low fat. We'll talk more about that. We thought fat was bad. But it's not it's right. So unfortunately, eating like that year after year when it gets to be Peri, menopause time women are more likely to have these symptoms. So we really want to be eating not the process Cobra carbohydrates, but more of a balanced eating plan. Right. Exactly. Like at Wayne wellness plan. Right. Right. Like our nutritional, weight and wellness balanced plan. Exactly. So maybe it's just been a poor eater your entire life. You know? So for years he might have said to yourself. Well, I'm gonna do something about my nutrition. I have to do it. But what happens? Life gets in the way, you keep moving forward, and you might say to yourself. Okay. Now, I'm going to do it. But then I don't have time to. Cook. Now, I don't have or I don't have the money to eat healthy or I'll just worry about my nutrition when I'm older, I have more time. And then suddenly you're older, and you feel what wired anxious bloated in your pants are getting tight. I mean, this is not is not by though procrastination with your nutrition often does not turn out in your favor. Right. And it's so easy to do that. I'll tomorrow or next year. It'd be my year. I'll start next week. That's for sure. Yeah. So we're gonna take our first break.

"Nutritional. Today's topic is nutrition for the cold and flu season. So I bet many of you are thinking they're going to talk about foods like vitamin C and oranges. And yes, while it's true that we do need more vitamin C at this time of year to protect our immune systems. We recognize that most people know about Seattle ready, supporting the immune system. So today, we're going to spend a lot of the next hour talking about something a little bit different. And that is how bone broth will boost your immune system. So you can ward off getting a cold or flu this season. And if you drink bone broth every day, I mean that is just amazing for you know, you're preventing what is going around these days. That's right. My name is Kara. Harper animal. Licensed nutritionists I have a master's degree in holistic health. And joining me today is my coast is Marcie Vaske. She's also a licensed nutritionist and she has a masters in clinical nutrition. Yes. Good morning. Yeah. It's so nice to be in a studio with you again as well. Yeah. You know in this topic is very timely. We're running into this time of year where everybody's getting sick and feeling cold for sure today. Right. I know you said your car said it was nine. Yes. Not good. No, not happy about the Fall River. Sure. You know? And what's so to build on this topic? You know, what's even more important is preventing called them. The flu is that car. And I both have kids going to school every day. So like many of you listeners who are listening out there this morning. They're getting exposed to all the viruses that are floating around just waiting to strike to put one of our kids in bed with a fever. Right. You know every year starting in November. It really is like clockwork the sounds of that coughing and sneezing that goes on in schools in the workplace you hear people snuff sniffly noses. You know, you're even walking around in grocery stores. It's happening at the gym health clause. Everybody is sneezing coughing doing. Right. And so, of course, we don't want, you know, we don't want to be calling in sick. But Sinn enough will know, you know, the kids we have to make that call kids aren't going to school and then. Few days later, you're not going to work. Right. Not you're taking care of yours. Thank you, get it. Yup. And it just keeps going back to school and then your home, right? Exactly. As a working parent when my child gets sick and has to stay home from school. Just like you. You know, we have to kind of scramble to make arrangements for someone to do childcare. And I'm sure a lot of you listeners. Go through a similar situation, you're thinking, okay. It's five o'clock in the morning. My kid has sore throat, fever, whatever it is who's going to care for them. Because I need to go to work. I have a big. Meaning I have a big call a presentation, or, you know, maybe you just don't wanna be getting behind it worked for whatever reason. So I try to avoid these situations altogether by really being proactive and concentrating on how can I build up my daughter's immune system to prevent viruses from being brought home to our house, and then mom and dad don't get sick either. Right. Right. Exactly. You know, and I had one I've had more than one clients say to me. We know someone's sick in the house and it just runs through the whole family. So we know how. So the prevention of it is so key in on we could recommend eating blueberries because of course, blueberries are full of vitamin c and beta carotene potassium, and several different antioxidants that are going to help support that immune system. But again, we think most of you because you guys are smart, and our and our longtime listeners already know to feed your children blueberries and also to avoid giving your children juice. So just as a reminder an eight ounce glass of juice contains about eight teaspoons of sugar. So that's a glass of orange juice or simple glass of apple juice. It has eight spoons of sugar, and you might be thinking. Well, what does that have to do is my immune system? But that that load of sugar is going to bring down that immune system and the sugar feeds your bacteria and the viruses. So think about it sugar feeds bacteria, viruses, and even cancer. I don't want to give my kids choose. And but a lot of people kind of get sucked into the juice ads on TV. You know, they're they're created to sell a lot of juice, and they're so convincing. So parents out there believe that they're bad parents, if they're not giving their child juice in the morning, you know, isn't that what we should be doing? By giving your child of Bassett juice that has AT spoons of sugar. Now, you know, it just makes absolutely. Yeah. Sounds right. Right. And I mean, I think people do have that misconception. A lot of it is from the media or people just have these nutritional myths that just kind of circulate we don't even know where we heard them. But oh, my child is sick. I should give them orange juice. Right. Not really realizing that there are eight teaspoons of sugar because all they're thinking about is the vitamin C. Right. Is he good? Yeah. So there's other ways to get vitamin c. I mean, like we we when my daughter get sick. We give her oranges or strawberries, or blueberries are all very high in vitamin c exactly. So. Marcy. I remember a book by Robert crayon nutrition made simple. And he is he quote, something a statistic about sugar that when we have something like sugar, which would be considered an eight ounce glass of juice is all of that sugar. Our immune system is paralysed for several hours. Interesting. Interesting word. Yeah. I always remember that because I figure the immune system just like stopping it's freezing up when you have like a high sugar food, which includes juice, unfortunately. Yes, exactly. So that's just one more nutritional myth that food. Manufacturers have advertised us into believing is true. I sure so now you're probably wondering, well, what's a better option? So this might surprise you. But today, we are going to talk about how bone broth boosts our immune system. And if you're unfamiliar with bone broth, let me get you up. To speed. So first of all bone broth has been around for thousands of years and has always been considered a healing food. And if you think about it, everyone recommends eating chicken soup when you're sick with a cold or the flu, and frankly when most people recommend chicken soup. You know, they're not referring to going to the grocery store and buying a can of chicken soup. I believe that canned soups are another one of those nutritional myths, and we need to ask ourselves. What is in most of those canned soups, like what ingredients are we talking about our what what's happening with this? So let's kind of, you know, take a dive in and really look inside. And see what's in these canned soups that we've been told her so healthy for us. And you know, just go get a can. As nutritionists I know the dangers of eating most, canned soups. I don't let my kids. He can't SUV why? Because most of the inside lining of the cans contain something called BPA. And I think a lot of people are familiar with that were but has been found to be an endocrine disruptor. Okay. So what does that mean while and the first thing I always ask is what are the health risks of that? What does that mean? So studies have linked IBP too early onset of puberty reproductive issues obesity, things like, insulin resistant, and even pre-cancerous changes. So those are all Andrew complications. Wow. Yeah. Right. So the BPA is in the lining of a lot of canned goods is what you're saying. Yes. Exactly. So now, let's take a look at maybe some of the ingredients that might be and the canned soup and one that stands out always is something called MS t-. Yeah. And you know, if if listeners. Tuned in last week, and you can always go get the podcast, weight and wellness dot com or even on itunes, but last week, Dr Caroline and Melanie talked about the dangers of MSG, which is monosodium glutamate and the dangers of that to brain health for most of us, if we wanna think right and have a good focus have positive moods. We really need to be avoiding anything that has MSG as an ingredient. And so are you aware that MSG is added to canned soup? It's to enhance the flavor and Melanie said last week on dishing up nutrition that MSG lies to us. So it makes us think that something tastes better than it. Really does and MSG there's all kinds of studies linked to the more MSG someone consumes the more. They're going to gain weight there can be liver inflammation, headaches and migraines. I know there's a big. Long like joint pain skin rashes. I mean the list. Oh, God it goes issues. I mean, a lot of that kind of you know, despite Osas going on. Yeah. It's a big problem. And I think people just don't realize what is in the food that they're eating and whenever you say, well, you're eating MSG while they just look at you like what are you talking about? I don't you know, and or they've heard of that. But they don't know that it might be causing their skin rash. Or had you know. So we have to really be detectives don't we and be kinda breeding all the labels. We sure do we sure do, you know? And I think it's time for our first break car. So let's do that. You are listening to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness today. We are having.
