Today we are answering the following question from a listener:

“What do you think about intermittent fasting or other fasts? I’ve heard they can be contraindicated for women especially. If one wants to try fasting, what signs should they look for to know if it’s having a negative effect? Is there a way to fast that would provide benefits but minimize risks? It seems there are potentially real benefits to fasting.”

Intermittent fasting has become a popular topic. We hear about the great benefits to health, but we also hear about the drawbacks and cautions against it. And with so many different fasting plans, it’s as confusing as it is intriguing. If you’re curious about intermittent fasting but don’t know where to begin to make sense of it all, you’ll want to listen today!

Tune in today as we talk everything fasting. Just some of what we’ll be discussing is the different methods of fasting,

Fitness. The word can bring to mind a picture of sweating through intense cardio and weights at the gym. We know physical fitness is important, but it’s common to feel as though if I can never get to the level of commitment and strength of the notable faces in the fitness industry, then why try?

What if fitness could be less about hardcore workout regimens and more about doing activities that you actually enjoy and engaging in movement that works best for your body?

Today we are answering the following question from a listener:

“Hello. Thanks for your great show! What recommendations would you give for women on weight loss? What would be a safe and effective way? How do I know if there’s something else going on that needs to be taken care of that’s preventing me from losing weight? I’m specifically interested in losing visceral fat and really want to do it the healthy way.

Also, I have a history of amenorrhea, but I have now had a regular period for about a year. At what point is it safe to try to lose weight and how should one take into account a history of amenorrhea? Mine was mostly due to stress, but some weight fluctuations in training a lot have really affected it as well. I know I’m at a pretty low stress state. I’m not trying to lose a lot of weight,

PODCAST: Guidelines For Gut Health

Thanks for joining us for episode 90 of The Ancestral RDs podcast. If you want to keep up with our podcasts, subscribe in iTunes and never miss an episode! Remember, please send us your question if you’d like us to answer it on the show.

Today we are answering the following question from a listener:

“Could you give some ideas about the best things one can do to help with leaky gut and dysbiosis? If you don’t have access to a functional medicine practitioner or knowledgeable RD, what things could you do on your own to compliment conventional treatment, or simply the most effective things once could implement to support optimal gut health and take care of a sensitive gut?

Simply put, what are the things you think make the most difference to gut health and what practical steps are there for those who already eat a Paleo style whole foods diet and know the big things like diet, sleep, and stress management?

I hear so many supplements and tips that are supposed to be good for your gut, but if you had to choose the best ones, which ones have the best value while still being practical in terms of cost,

PODCAST: Dietary Supplements: How To Know If They’re Effective And Safe

Thanks for joining us for episode 89 of The Ancestral RDs podcast. If you want to keep up with our podcasts, subscribe in iTunes and never miss an episode! Remember, please send us your question if you’d like us to answer it on the show.

Today we are answering the following question from a listener:

“How can you know if you’re absorbing vitamins, minerals, and supplements, especially if there is leaky gut or SIBO? I have heard that normal blood levels don’t necessarily mean the nutrients are getting into your cells and exerting an effect. I don’t want to spend money on supplements my body isn’t absorbing, and if blood levels don’t give that information, how can we know?

With so much fraud in the supplement industry, how can we know which brands of supplements contain what they claim, and even more are free of dangerous heavy metals that could just make things worse?”

With the vast amount of supplements on the market, it seems like there is a supplement for every health concern. But with little oversight in the supplement industry, it can be overwhelming to figure out which ones actually deliver what they claim.
