In this week’s episode of Well+Good’s YouTube Series, “You Versus Food” I discuss the mighty power of the peanut butter, winning across most nutritional categories when compared to ALL the other nut butters. My favorite line…

“Peanut butter is made of peanuts and peanuts are pretty healthy,” says Beckerman. “So just like that perfect match you found on Tinder, peanuts have an optimal profile— a nutritional profile, that is.”

Find out for yourself if peanut butter is 100% healthy…spoiler….IT IS!!!

I’m unpacking ALL the info on TURMERIC. Not TUM-ERIC, TURMERIC! The anti-inflammatory super spice is taking over the world and you’ve probably even put it into your golden milk lattes. Yum!

In the video, I provide the inside scoop on the benefits of turmeric — from how it can actually help with inflammation, to how to actually use turmeric (hint: curcumin, turmeric's key compound, needs a special friend in order to absorb properly). Plus, you better believe that I’m giving you a SPICE GIRL JOKE in this video. Duh!!

The Betches Podcast "Diet Starts Tomorrow" Episode #4

by Tracy Lockwood Beckerman in , ,

And we are back!! We recorded an honest, open and candid conversation on this episode of “Diet Starts Tomorrow.'“ We covered the INs and OUTs of the celery juice craze, which was started by a quack also known as “The Medical Medium”. I gave my honest and open opinion and even rated it on a scale from 1-10 (being the worst). You better believe I gave celery juice a bad rating!!

We talked about orthorexia and how it is very prevalent these days as we become more obsessed with our health, each and every day. We also discussed the pros and cons of the Weight Watchers freestyle diet as a plan for health management instead of weight management. We had a lot of questions about hunger and satiety hormones and how to regulate it through food choices. A ton of people asked about “hypothalamic amenorrhea” and I not only helped defined it for the listeners but shared a personal story of mine as well. It was an open, raw and candid conversation for anyone who is going through it too! We concluded with how these impact the menstrual cycle, reproductive health and I gave tips on how to overcome it. I also shared a BIG SURPRISE on the podcast and if you haven’t had the chance to listen….here it goes:
