73: Atomic Health #3: How Do We Uncomplicate Our Relationship With Food?
Play • 32 min

Have you tried to transform the way you think about food and nutrition?

Join Sonya Lovell and Roma van der Walt as we dissect the language we use when we talk about food and examine the emotional attachments we form with what we eat.

Sonya kicks things off by challenging us to set aside those damaging 'good' and 'bad' food labels and understand how they contribute to a seemingly unbreakable cycle of guilt and shame.

We'll also scrutinize the impact of energy sources like sugar, caffeine, and alcohol on our health, particularly in midlife.

Our chat doesn't just stop at food labels and emotions. We will unlock the secrets of protein and fibre, specifically in the diet of women over 40. Bust some common myths around protein consumption and clarify the confusion between meal replacement shakes and protein powder.

And we'll put under the microscope those smoothies and juices you gulp down every morning and uncover the critical role of gut health in overall wellness.

This episode is not to be missed if you want a healthier, less complicated, and guilt-free relationship with food.
