Show Notes

Show Summary: Do you cancel appointments with your dietitian because you feel like you're not consistently following the meal plans prepared for you?

Do you feel a bit pressured to visit the clinic because of struggles that prevent you from achieving your health goals?

You are not alone. Many people feel this way when they realize that it's a challenge to keep up with their dietitian's recommendations. That typically happens because of multiple triggers, such as the emotions, body chemistry, and stress that cause cravings. Addressing those gradually increases the chance of your wellness through the help of your health coach.

In this episode with Gina Worful, a registered dietitian and master of human nutrition, you will learn how to determine:

  • What causes your triggers
  • How to know what your body needs
  • How your physiology works

Listen as she breaks down the reason behind your cravings and get tips on how you can understand your body better.

3 Exceptional Highlights:

  • When we get a craving, it's actually just your body telling you, “Hey, there's something that I really need”.
  • Whenever your body gets this signal that there's a little bit of stress or a warning, it actually activates a different part of your brain that's called your amygdala. It's one and only job is to keep you safe if there's a threat.
  • When we don't sleep, we don't heal properly. And when we're not sleeping properly, cortisol goes through the roof, blood sugar goes up.

How Gina became a dietitian??

Gina 4:14

  • I became a dietitian in 2012. When I went to I studied at Eastern Michigan University, they have an amazing dietetics program there. And I thought, the more knowledge I have, the better I can help people..

Why are patients scared of follow-ups?

Juanique 7:20

  • Whenever I consult with people, people have this shame around food, and I have to remind them, this is a safe space, I am not going to judge you here.

Where do mostly cravings come from?

Juanique 24:40

  • A lot of times cravings do come from nutritional deficiencies. 

What is the process revolutionary for Tristin?

Tristin 38:02

  •  In my mind, it feels very revolutionary because you're not really talking about nutrition, you're talking about deeply embedded psychological processes, you're talking about working through trauma.
