    Did the quarantine affect your food habits?

    14/07/2020

    Has the lock down affected your eating habits?  Eating more and enjoying it less?  Eating better?  No change? Just a few very looonnnnng months ago, our busy lives meant that our food choices were dominated by food prepared by someone else.  Convenience food, restaurant food, fast food, take out, grab and go snacks and processed […] The post Did the quarantine affect your food habits? appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

  • Host immunity depends nutrition

    Host immunity depends nutrition

    11/04/2020

    Host Immunity isn’t about hospitality. It’s about the ability of your immune system to fight infections and heal injuries. Many nutrients are critical for immune function. Which is why I find it puzzling (or disturbing) to hear medical professionals dissing the importance of nutrition for immunity. Host immunity is your body’s defense system. Listen up […] The post Host immunity depends nutrition appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

    Covid-19 and hypertension

    21/03/2020

    Like all upper respiratory viral infections, SARS-CoV-2 — aka Covid-19, aka corona virus — affects groups of people differently. Young and healthy people may not even show symptoms. Frail elderly people with preexisting medical problems may develop severe and life threatening complications, predominantly pneumonia. Covid-19 is especially dangerous for people with hypertension. Why is that? […] The post Covid-19 and hypertension appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

  • What’s the best nut butter?

    What’s the best nut butter?

    11/11/2019 Duración: 05min

    I’ve been thinking about nut butters recently because some almond butter appeared in my pantry. It was an ingredient for a particular recipe, but of course I had to have a spoonful. Yum! It’s got a lovely mild/sweet flavor, and I wondered why I haven’t been buying it more often. I am now. All of […] The post What’s the best nut butter? appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

  • (NOT) My Favorite Diet: Paleo Diet

    (NOT) My Favorite Diet: Paleo Diet

    28/10/2019

    The Paleo Diet has never been a favorite of mine. It’s based on the pretense that modern foods can mimic the diet eaten by primitive humans 50,000 or 1 million years ago. The assumption being that primitive humans gorged on meat and not much else. The perfect excuse to gorge on meat! And what would […] The post (NOT) My Favorite Diet: Paleo Diet appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

    What is a Plant-Based Diet anyway?

    06/09/2019

    There’s a lot of confusion about the meaning of “plant based diet”. I try to clear it up by talking about what plant-based does not mean. At least that’s a start. By the way, it does not mean vegan or vegetarian, although those are variations on plant-based. Unfortunately a recently published study incorrectly defined plant-based […] The post What is a Plant-Based Diet anyway? appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

    (NOT) My Favorite Diet: Low Fat

    20/08/2019

    The Low Fat Diet sounds good on paper, but doesn’t work in the real world. I dislike it for lots of good reasons, especially because it encourages people to rely on fake processed food. The post (NOT) My Favorite Diet: Low Fat appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

  • Fructose Revisited

    Fructose Revisited

    24/04/2019

    While doing a spring cleaning on old blog posts, I found several on fructose. It was a popular topic years ago, thanks to high fructose corn syrup hysteria. Unfortunately, the potential problems of excess fructose intake haven’t gone away, so time to revisit this topic. Here are links to previous blog posts on fructose: Another […] The post Fructose Revisited appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

  • Is the calorie dead?

    Is the calorie dead?

    10/04/2019

    It’s safe to say calories have hijacked our thinking about diets, nutrition and food. It took maybe half a century for that to happen. Now we operate on the belief that: Calories = nutrition The fewer calories in a food the healthier the food You have to count calories everyday If you cut back a […] The post Is the calorie dead? appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

    Fiber: the more the better?

    A recent study claims everyone — regardless of age, gender or physical size — should eat 30 grams of fiber a day. Is that even reasonable? Do fiber supplements count? The post Fiber: the more the better? appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

    T’is the season for food guilt

    18/11/2018 Duración: 03min

    Ever since the beginning of the obesity epidemic, the holidays have been turned into an exercise in non-stop food guilting.  You’re supposed to spend the season obsessing about calories. I completely disagree.  This is not helpful. The post T’is the season for food guilt appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

    A post about (shhhh….) obesity

    02/11/2018 Duración: 08min

    I have not written about obesity per se in a long time.  Not because it isn’t an issue anymore.  Far from it.  I just don’t see the point of harping on it as a thing.  It’s very negative.  People struggling with their weight don’t need to be reminded or badgered or blamed or made to […] The post A post about (shhhh….) obesity appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

    I’m done with calories

    09/08/2018 Duración: 08min

    You read that right.  I’m completely done with calories as a nutritional obsession.  I realize a person in my profession is expected to focus most of my attention on calories, advising everyone to worry about them and add them up everyday.  But not any more.  It’s over. This isn’t an overnight decision.  I’ve been annoyed […] The post I’m done with calories appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

    Saturated fat reprieve?

    19/07/2018 Duración: 07min

    Recently I switched to whole milk yogurt, one brand in particular (which shall remain nameless as I’m not paid to endorse it).  It’s regular — not Greek style — yogurt, and not homogenized.  Fat and water don’t mix, so the cream separates and when you open the container, there’s a delightful and delicious layer of […] The post Saturated fat reprieve? appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

    I haven’t been focusing on weight loss or diets at all recently, not because obesity has magically gone away.  Rather I think the whole subject is negative and counter-productive.  Better to think about eating a more healthful overall diet.  But while cleaning old blog posts off the site, I found one titled “10 diet Myths”, […] The post 10 Diet Myths Revisited appeared first on Radio Nutrition.

    To say I’m not a fan of artificial sweeteners is an understatement. I detest them for so many reasons: fake off putting flavors train people to crave sweeteners haven’t helped with obesity at all Did I mention “Fake” Here’s one thing not on my list: cancer risk.  That’s the one effect regulatory agency bureaucrats think […] The post More bad news on artificial sweeteners appeared first on Radio Nutrition.
