21: Food Allergies & Intolerances - A Discussion with Chelsey Amer, MS RD

Claire Shorenstein, MS RD CDN with Chelsey Amer, MS RD

Welcome to Episode 21 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast, featuring a discussion of food allergies and intolerances with NYC-based dietitian, Chelsey Amer, MS RD. This is an important topic and one that often causes confusion, especially in the landscape of all the fad diets out there. It’s also one that I can relate to, as I developed a severe shellfish allergy in my early 20’s, so I’m glad that we’re tackling this topic in today’s episode.

Chelsey is the founder of Chelsey Amer Nutrition, a virtual nutrition counseling practice and consulting business. She has had severe allergies from a young age, which is in part what inspired her to become a dietitian - to help empower others with allergies figure out what they can safely eat without feeling deprived. In addition to her private client work, she loves to whip up all kinds of (allergy-friendly) recipes! Definitely check out her IG/blog as well as her brand new cookbook below if you’re looking for some cooking inspiration. She also has an 8 month old son, so we of course enjoyed chatting about the challenges of postpartum life.

Here are some of the things that we cover in this episode:

  • Our personal allergy stories 
  • The basics - what is an allergy vs an intolerance? 
  • Lactose intolerance and dairy, more generally 
  • Celiac disease, gluten intolerance/sensitivity, and gluten, more generally 
  • Pro-inflammatory foods
  • Increased prevalence of allergies in kids
  • Disordered eating disguised as allergies/intolerances 
  • How Chelsey approaches recipe development 
  • Postpartum life - sugar cravings, exercise, and more
  • Eating out with allergies 
  • Gluten, dairy & thyroid

*FYI, if you’re mostly interested in the allergy/intolerance discussion, we take a break from the topic for a bit and then resume the main discussion around 43 minutes into the episode, when I finally remember the remaining questions I wanted to ask!
