Sami and Aleen sit down with registered dietitian Tracy Lockwood Beckerman (@TheHappiestNutritionist) to discuss a variety of health issues and dispel dieting myths. They start talking about the terms nutritionist and dietitian and how you shouldn't just trust any random "health coach." They move on to a discussion of ketosis. Bad news: a lot of people are ruining their keto diets with one crazy night out a week. Carrots make you look tanner, but what’s more interesting is that Aleen once tried to tan under a heat lamp. They move onto exercise’s role in weight loss- as necessary as it is, it can lead to some problems on the diet side. Next up: Whole 30. But what about day 31? Sustainability and good habits are the key.

Aleen and Sami have broken their Keto diets due to pasta (Italian and Chinese). They are joined by registered dietitian Tracy Lockwood Beckerman who disapproves of the Keto diet on a whole. They talk about the upsides and downsides, including the Keto glow (which is enhanced with maracuja oil). They take a letter from a listener asking about intermittent fasting + bloating which seems to happen all of the time. Can it be stopped? Tracy explains the pitfalls of artificial sweeteners and a diet known as low FODMAP. A listener writes in to ask about tips for sticking to their diet for the weekend. They discuss moderation, the constant desire for carbs, and wrap up on a letter asking about mindful & intuitive eating.
