I have become so passionate about light optimization recently, and filtering out computer light and blue light entirely after the sun sets. I wasn’t doing anything about this until about a year ago, and I was experiencing eye strain, migraines, and an unexplained wired and tired feeling, especially at night. Now I wear BLUblox computer filter glasses anytime I’m looking at screens, and BLUblox sleep lenses at night, and I haven’t experienced symptoms since. BLUblox was created because they saw the need for a product that was exactly in line with the peer reviewed academic literature. There are a lot of cheaply made lenses out there that don’t actually block all the blue and green light. Don’t waste your time on that, go to, and use the code WELLFED for 15% off. BioOptimizers This podcast is sponsored by BiOptimizers. Please refer back to episode #258 all about digestion for some more insight on how to resolve common digestive issues. If you feel like you are doing all the right things yet you’re still struggling with digestive issues such as gas, bloating, or cramping—which are actually very common, nothing to be ashamed about—start with a high quality enzyme and try switching to a proteolytic probiotic. If you’ve never tried enzymes before, or have and it didn’t work, I encourage you to give MassZymes a go. It is a full-spectrum enzyme formula with 5 different kinds of protease, which is the enzyme that is the catalyst for the breakout of protein. And undigested proteins can cause a lot of gut dysfunction. And then their Probiotic, P3-OM, is a proteolytic probiotic, which means it digests protein. It’s antiviral, it actually eliminates pathogens and waste… and is maintainable in the human digestive system. Once in your body, the P3-OM super strain doubles every 20 minutes, and helps get rid of the bad guys—before it is safely eliminated.  Give both MassZymes and P3-OM a go. So many individuals suffer from digestive issues—because any protein your body doesn’t break down creates digestive distress, gas, bloating and constipation. The combination of P3-OM and MassZymes ensures that all the protein you consume breaks down into absorbable amino acids. Go to And use coupon code WELLFED10 to get 10% off all products.

Introducing 'Tis The Season To Ditch Diet Culture!
Every day, we’re served up the poison punch that is diet culture.  What to eat and how to exercise to lose weight. Which bodies are acceptable, and which bodies aren’t. This diet. That diet. Body shame. Fasting. Macro tracking. More body shame. And every holiday season, this poison punch gets spiked. New year, new you? More like new you, same BS. Spoiler alert: This poison punch isn’t going away any time soon.  So, we’ve created the antidote for it.  Badass Lady Gang, meet ‘Tis the season to ditch diet culture. This FREE 8-week long course was created by Badass Lady Gang NYC co-leader Kayla Reynolds, MS to empower you to navigate the holiday season in a way that's truly healthy -- mind, body, spirit -- no punch necessary.  Every week we’ll explore a specific theme and equip you with concrete tools that you can use to jingle all the way to a memorable holiday.  Here’s how we’re going to break it down: * Week 1: Ditch the disguise (because diet culture is sneaky AF) * Week 2: Diet is a noun and food isn’t the enemy - let’s bust some myths * Week 3: Detox your judgments… your liver and kidneys will do the rest * Week 4: People suck!!! Dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge their projections * Week 5: Breakthrough the shit - if you want different, you need to do different * Week 6: Food isn’t medicine (and you consume way more than what you eat) * Week 7: No one knows you like you do! How to listen to your body in a noisy world * Week 8: What if self-love wasn’t the goal? Let’s start with self-care And here’s what’s in store: * A newsletter every SUNDAY evening introducing the weekly theme, including journaling prompts and a challenge to put your knowledge into practice * A NEW podcast episode released every MONDAY at 12:00 pm EST (via Run, Selfie, Repeat) * A Group Zoom call every WEDNESDAY 8:00 pm-9:00 pm ET (5:00 pm-6:00 pm PT) to discuss the weekly theme, and our experience with the journal prompt, challenge, and anything else that came up, in a safe space Whether this is the first time you’ve started to think about the ways in which diet culture has impacted you, whether you’re skeptical that ditching diet culture is possible, whether you’ve done every diet in the book and are ready to leave it all behind, or whether you’ve never fallen for the false promises of diet culture but are sick and tired of all the noise, this course is for you! This course is meant to meet you wherever you’re at in your journey towards ditching diet culture, reclaiming the word diet, and making peace with yourself and your body. We want to make sure that this course is as valuable as possible for you, so we want to dedicate one to two of our weekly podcast episodes to answering your burning questions about diet, diet culture, nutrition, body shame, dealing with people, making peace with food, being kind to yourself, and anything else, really! We’ll also try to bring some of these questions to our group calls to help us have more meaningful discussions. To submit your questions, CLICK HERE to email us.   Meet Kayla Reynolds, MS Kayla Reynolds is a late-twenty something New York City transplant, originally from Montreal, Canada, and the co-leader of Badass Lady Gang’s NYC chapter. When she’s not dancing with her BALG, she’s working on checking off walking every street of Manhattan by foot, exploring one neighborhood at a time, and determined to find NYC’s best cold brew and restaurants along the way. As a child and eventually teenager, Kayla joined every team sport imaginable, and cheerleading quickly became her passion. Growing up very active and also experiencing many digestive issues, she became interested in nutrition and the impact that food had on the way she felt and performed. Paired with her love of all things science, she eventually chose to move to NYC to pursue her Master of Science in Human Nutrition at Columbia University. It was there, alongside her own life experiences where she realized that the food that made it to our plates is only a sliver of the health equation. Over time, her passion for mental health and wellbeing grew, and she began to see our “diet” as more than just food, but everything that we consume -- social media, advertisement, relationships, self-talk, … and so much more. Now, when it comes to nutrition, she believes that our thoughts about food, our bodies, and ourselves impact us more than any one food we eat (or don’t), and that having a healthy, balanced, low-stress relationship with food is most important. Food doesn’t need to be so complicated. So, she’s dedicated to helping people ditch diet culture and lead full, fulfilling lives, which can’t happen on an empty stomach.  CLICK HERE to Join our 'Tis The Season To Ditch Diet Culture Private Group in our Online Community!

127: Using Nutrition + Superfoods to Heal Your PCOS - Part 2
How can you optimize and support PCOS through nutrition? In this episode, I dish out some strategies that will help you deal with not just PCOS but any hormonal balance at the end of the day. You can find all the info and links about this episode at Topics Discussed in this Episode: * Nutritional strategies to optimize and support PCOS * Preparing yourself mentally when it comes to food and your kitchen * Building a balanced plate * Why snacking isn’t good for you * Snack ideas for when you can’t resist it * Superfoods Key Takeaways: * Eating an anti-inflammatory whole foods diet is going to benefit you if you’re dealing with insulin resistance, irregular period, hair loss, fatigue, PMS, menopause, thyroid issues, etc. * Healing takes time, and it is not linear. There are going to be so many ups and downs, and it’s so important that you recognize that you’re going to have good days and bad days. * All women with PCOS are different, so the approach to healing is not one-size-fits-all. What works for one woman doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you. * When it comes to building a balanced plate, there are a few things to focus on: healthy fats, protein, and the right carbohydrates and fiber. * The more frequently you eat throughout the day, the more you’re spiking your insulin levels. And the more your insulin spikes, the more it impacts your ovaries and sex hormones. Action Steps: * Prepare yourself mentally when it comes to food and your kitchen: * Get clear on what it is that you want (i.e. the goals that you want to achieve with your health) and how you really want to feel. * Make a commitment to ditch your bad habits. * Get your kitchen ready and stock it with healthy food, ingredients, and products. * Spend some time planning your meals. Think about your week ahead so that you can start meal-prepping and perhaps batch-cooking. * Set realistic expectations for yourself. * Don’t compare yourself to somebody else’s journey. * Ditch the diet mindset. * Other tips to think about: * Eat intuitively. Take a few deep breaths before you eat. Don’t rush into your meals. Sit in peace and quiet without distractions. * Tune in to your hunger. * Appreciate your food. * Chew your food well. * Build a balanced plate. * Figure out the best plan of action for you to move forward in your healing journey. * Make sure you’re antibiotic- and hormone-free. * Manage your insulin levels. * Choose a good-quality protein powder Samantha said: “There’s no harm in going grain-free. And the great thing is, you’ve got lots of options to help you with that.” “I don’t want anybody to ‘diet’. I want us to live it. And that’s what’s going to lead to longevity.” Thanks for listening!
