Episode Description

“Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates Host Julia is a fifteen-year-old female teen athlete, competing nationally in multisports including triathlon and aquathlon. She offers tips on personalizing one’s eating habits to stay healthy. There is no one-size-fits-all. Diet trends and fads don’t last, but our body is with us to the end. Julia interviews author, Sandy Robertson, with the 2nd edition of her book, Why Am I Eating This? Is This the Nourishment I Need? +*Sandy informs us that it takes 20 minutes for our brain to register that we have consumed enough. We need to slow down and pause. Gratitude and self-care are part of loving ourselves and nourishing ourselves. Stop rushing. Take the time to savor each bite. Emotions affect our eating habits. When we are stressed, we tend to try to self-soothe. Food is comfort. Pay attention to our patterns so that we don’t let our emotions govern what and how much we eat. Eating disorders of eating too much or too little are prevalent today. Talk to an expert and get support if your eating routines are out of whack. Keep a food or self-care journal. Ask yourself if you are physically hungry. Do you have fun in your life? Are you sleeping enough? Be mindful when eating. Pay attention to the colors, textures, and tastes. What makes us unique is that everybody is different. Perfection is not possible. It’s not the goal. Love yourself. Eat mindfully! Eat healthily. We only have one body. Be kind to it.
