EP44: Are You Having Herxheimer Reactions?

Herxheimer reactions are something that most people have experienced but they probably didn't know it had a name. In short, it's when the body is having sort of a cleansing crisis and certain symptoms get worse before they get better. Since each person's chemical makeup is different, there is really no limit to what form a Herxheimer reaction will take but some of the most common types of Herxheimer reactions can show up as pain, headaches, fever, chills, hives, or rashes anywhere on the body. Herxheimer reactions can be triggered by just about any food, ingredient, supplement or even certain types of medical care. These reactions happen mostly due to the fact that the body is already struggling (for some reason or another) to detoxify through its normal pathways. People who have autoimmune conditions will likely experience Herxheimer reactions frequently because their body is already some state of crisis and already struggling to excrete toxins normally. Also in this episode: • two of my goals to reach before 2019 • why regular doctors never mention Herxheimer reactions • why I want you to know that Herxheimer reactions are a thing • why having a liver and kidneys isn't always enough to sufficiently detoxify the body • type of Herxheimer reactions • Herxheimer reactions vs. allergic reactions • most common occurrences of Herxheimer reactions • how detoxification of the body is related • how it's related to junk food and headaches • why people with autoimmune conditions might experience Herxheimer reactions frequently Patreon Episode page Shop Facebook Instagram YouTube Order lab tests Please subscribe, leave a review and share this podcast with a friend!

EP43: The Harm of Diet Culture in Business Settings

When was the last time you were at work, and someone said, "Hey guys, I think we should call a meeting to talk about all the destructive, unnecessary comments that I hear you make to each other around meals at work"? NEVER, right? Not even the HR department will take that initiative, although there is room to improve mental health in the workplace if they would. Today's topic is about so many things that I have encountered and thought about since my very first job after college. Every single place I worked, I always found people's behaviors and comments about when, how, or what people eat to be bizarre. It became increasingly odd to me as I worked more and more places over the years too. The accepted behaviors around meals in offices and what is considered "normal" raises red flags for me. In this episode, I'm pointing them out so that we can each try to make sure that we're not the ones making normal things like eating lunch, unnecessarily stressful for other people. I'm also breaking it into two categories — the things that employers do, and then the things that co-workers do/say to each other. Some highlights in this episode: • pitfalls of workplace wellness challenges • why flu shots don't belong in offices • pitfalls of team lunches/dinners • respecting the privacy and boundaries of others • subtle, but inappropriate behaviors when eating with co-workers • being judgemental about food in the workplace • why I will never bring doughnuts/treats to the office (it has nothing to do with nutrition) Patreon Episode page Shop Facebook Instagram YouTube Order lab tests Please subscribe, leave a review and share this podcast with a friend!

EP42: Toxic Positivity vs. True Positivity

If you've never heard of toxic positivity, this episode is especially for you! In order to bloom, we have to be willing to sit in the dirt sometimes. Have you ever gone through times when you were depressed, lacked any oomph for life or you were dragging through the days and not feeling upbeat about anything? I know I've had lots of those times myself. As recently as last week. Maybe you found the strength to share that — and yes, I do consider that to be a form of strength because it's showing vulnerability in this world that largely doesn't accept mental health issues — but maybe you shared those feelings but the responses you got were like: "Cheer up!" "It could be worse!" "Look on the bright side" "Don't worry, it will be okay" "Don't cry or you're going to make me cry" "It's really not that serious" or... "But you're such an amazing person! You shouldn't be sad!" UGH! Gross. Those are all forms of toxic positivity. It's insensitive. It dismisses the other person's reality and it sends a signal that can't trust that you have the emotional capacity to share personal things with you. Or maybe your gut response right now is, "Hey Kel, what's your point? Those sound like nice, positive comments to me". They're nice but they're not kind. There's a big difference. And they're certainly not compassionate. Those are examples of toxic positivity. Also in this episode: • why true positivity isn't everything • why experts have called "positive vibes only" spiritual bullying • my recent experiences with toxic positivity • examples of toxic positivity and what you should say instead • taking a stand for your own boundaries in order to protect your energy • why you shouldn't have the goal to cheer someone up • why toxic positivity is harmful and emotionally inept • truly positive ways to verbally support someone ...and more!

EP41: Fat: The Most Energy-Dense Macronutrient

We've been talking about macronutrients, carbs, protein, and last but not least — today is all about the macro which is fat. And I say it's not least because both carbs and protein each have 4 calories for per gram, and fats contain 9 calories per gram. And that's not a bad thing. It can really work to your advantage once you learn about how macros work. So here we go with some FAT CHAT. Let's cover some basics, shall we? Some of the major ways that our bodies use fat from our diets: • For energy! And as today's title says, it's the most energy-dense macro. That doesn't mean it's got caffeine in it. What that means is that calories are units of energy, and 1 gram of fat has how many calories? Nine. So that why it's the most energy-dense. • Fat also helps to balance hormones. • Fat forms our cell membranes all throughout the body so it keeps our cells protected • Fat forms our brains and nervous system. The brain is around 60% fat. Fat intake is crucial for development at any st...

EP40: Protein: The Macronutrient of Strength

Today I'm going to give you some basic but important information about protein and this is by no means complete, but I'm going to try to clarify some things that are related to questions I have always been asked about protein intake. If you listened last week to the episode about carbs, another macronutrient, you are correct if you're guessing that next week will be all about fats, the remaining macronutrient. As a quick refresher, I think everyone should memorize the following: • Fat provides 9 calories per gram. • Carbohydrates provide 4 calories per gram. • Protein provides 4 calories per gram. What does that even mean? Quick example. Let's say you're looking at a food label and it says "10 grams of protein", you can automatically know that you'd be getting 40 calories from just the protein in that source of food, plus the calories of whatever the carb and fat content are. Highlights in this episode: • How much protein do you need? • The difference between not being protein-deficient and having optimal protein • Talking to kids about protein • Times that you might need to increase protein intake • The importance of getting protein with your first meal of the day • Easy, on-the-go egg muffins (exact recipe will be on my website) • Protein when you're eating a plant-based diet • Smoothies and protein shakes • Do you need whey protein or a protein supplement? • Amino acids Please subscribe, share this with a friend and leave a review for the show!

EP40: Protein: The Macronutrient of Strength

EP39: Cut the Carb Confusion

Three main macronutrients are fat, protein and carbohydrates. Carbs often get mislabeled as "bad" but we need this macronutrient as a source of energy to fuel our bodies. “Macro” means large, so macronutrients are needed in large amounts. Carbohydrates provide 4 calories per gram. To make sure you're making the connection of what this means, remember when I talked about all of the info that's on the Nutrition Facts label a couple of episodes ago? Imagine you're looking at one of those labels and you see the line that says how many carbs are in each serving. If it says there are 25 grams of carbs per serving, by knowing that carbohydrates provide 4 calories per gram, then by multiplying that 25 x 4, you can calculate that you're getting 100 calories worth of carbs from whatever that item/serving size is. That is the beginning concept of how you would learn to count macros as a dietary tool, but today we're just going to talk about the singular macronutrient of carbs. A lot of people tend to forget that vegetables are mainly carbs. Not only that but they give us sources of MICROnutrients and fiber too. Therefore they are more nutrient-dense sources of carbs than other carbs like pasta, muffins, or bread. Other things discussed in this episode: • Carb Confusion: dispelling generalities about carbs • Gluten: how this protein is often thought of as a carb and why it's incorrect • Gluten and food sensitivities • Should you stop eating carbs at night? • How to use statements like "Yes, and..." or "No, but..." to turn inaccurate generalities into something more accurate • Portion sizing tips and carb awareness for a lifestyle change • Dialing carbs up or down for your goals Please subscribe, share this with a friend and leave a review for the show!

EP38: Psychological Tricks to Stay On Track

Psychological tricks?! Are you saying to yourself, "Uhh, hey, Kel, this sounds a little bit sketchy. What are you even talking about, woman? How is that even healthy?" Okay. Fair enough. Do take this episode with a grain of salt, but also stay open-minded and take these ideas as a springboard for adjusting these ideas to fit into your own unique life in a way that works for YOU! We all have some kind of health and fitness goals, right? Our level of commitment to those goals can be a bit of a roller coaster. That's normal. When other parts of life start to feel a little bit out of control, health and fitness goals are usually the first to be neglected. There are a number of things you might encounter in life where fitness and nutrition fall to the wayside even though you don't want it to be that way. But there's this area in the middle where life is going to be hectic no matter what and you can't neglect nutrition and fitness forever, so what kinds of tactics do you have in your back pocket to whip out on the days that are kinda rough. Start making an tool kit in your mind for the things that will light a fire under your butt on the days when you're mentally struggling to stay committed to your training plan, your running schedule, your meal plan, to prep your lunches for the week...or whatever it is that you're working on in relation to fitness or nutrition. In this episode, I'm sharing a personal story of how I stopped my bad habit of drinking 32 ounces of Diet Coke every day for a few years. What made it permanently effective? Listen and find out! I'm also sharing a handful of psychological tricks to help you stay on track. They won't be right for everyone, but it will definitely give you something to think about, make you question what types of things keep you motivated and I might make you laugh a bit in the process.

EP37: Mitochondria: The MVP in the Game of Energy

Mitochondria play a role in every single function of the body. These powerful, microscopic organelles are like little motors within each cell. Depending on what you eat or how you treat your body, they can increase in density which will give you more energy or they can start to die off and eventually lead to any kind of DIS-ease in the body. I think it's important for you to know about mitochondria, as well as how mitochondrial dysfunction happens so that you will be more inspired to stay ahead of the game by realizing that all of the choices you make for your body — through food, activity, and anything health-related — affect your mitochondrial function. Also discussed in this episode: • mitochondrial density • things that keep mitochondria running optimally • things that deplete mitochondria function • the chain of events that lead to severe mitochondrial dysfunction • ATP production and mitochondria • how environmental toxins affect mitochondria • how EMFs affect mitochondria • mitochondria and immunity Episode page Shop Facebook Instagram YouTube Patreon

Announcement: Join the Pantry Clean-out Challenge here! https://fitfizzstudio.com/pantry-challenge Nutrition labels can cause a lot of confusion for some people so I'm going through some important points that I think everyone should take into account. This is the black and white box that's somewhere on a food package, and separate from the ingredients list which I'll discuss another time. What you choose to focus on when looking at the Nutrition Facts will depend on your lifestyle, needs, and goals. Some of the things I talk about in this episode: • What I personally look for on Nutrition Facts • Why I'm careful to not demonize entire groups of foods, unlike other professionals • How to think about serving sizes shown on food packaging • The lies that food manufacturers are legally allowed to tell • Macronutrients and micronutrients • Why "high protein" claims are somewhat irrelevant • Sodium intake • Recommended Daily Allowances (RDA) on the new and old Nutrition Facts • Sugar precautions You can view the side-by-side comparison of the old Nutrition Facts label vs. the new one required by January 1, 2020. https://www.fda.gov/media/97999/download Episode page Shop Facebook Instagram YouTube Patreon

EP35: Aging, Telomeres and the Perception of Getting Old, Part 2

Telomeres are a key part of our DNA and chromosomes that are related to how we visibly show age. This is a relatively new science that's just starting to gain more traction, but in today's episode, I'm sharing an explanation of telomeres and how they work.
