How do you know if you have autoimmune, what do you do
about it? What is it even, I have a soft place in my heart for this because I have Hashimoto and you know, I didn't know what that was. I didn't know what was wrong with me. And I struggled with, you know, weird illnesses for so many years.
Okay. So I am classically trained as a chiropractor, but that wasn't quite
enough for me. So I went and I got my masters in human nutrition and
functional medicine because I love nutrition and healing the body with food.
I'm all about a balance between Western medicine and traditional medicine, but also working with natural paths and really creating a team. I think they all have a...

So today I’m here with Brooke Alpert. Brooke is celebrating the release of her new book, The Diet Detox and is a Registered Dietitian. Welcome, Brooke!
For those who are new to the podcast, Fitlandia is all about NOT dieting…so it was a natural fit to invite Brooke to the show when I discovered her new book. Let’s have Brooke talk a little bit about how this book came to be.
Brooke says she has been a Registered Dietitian for 10 and ½ years and has owned her own private practice that entire time. Her focus is in weight loss…she helps people lose weight but not with harmful dieting. After the birth of her 2nd daughter, she had the hardest time losing the excess weight and was feeling quite like a fraud in her business.
She was feeling uncomfortable in her own...

We have an exciting show for you today as we help you get over the fear of jumping into the ketogenic diet with the Queen of Keto herself, Leanne Vogel!
Leanne started studying nutrition in 2007 to help her better understand her body and how it worked with the foods she was putting into it. Originally going to school to help herself, she discovered after graduation that she had learned too much not to help other people and that’s when her blog, “Healthful Pursuit” was born.
Being a super athlete, Leanne noticed after years of not having her menstrual cycle that she wasn’t performing at her best and was continually struggling to put on muscle. This sparked her interest in regulating her cycle, but after starting hormone replacement therapy she discovered it was stunting her training even more. She went to a naturopath begging for help and that’s where she was introduced to a ketogenic diet.
Desperate for a change, Leanne who was a vegan and whole-foods...

We are thrilled to welcome Katherine Feeney to the Fitlandia Podcast this week! Katherine is a certified holistic nutritionist and the mastermind behind The Dieting Redefined Summit. She has a drive to educate and empower others to create a positive relationship with food, revolving around whole foods, intuitive eating, and kicking calorie counting and restricted mindsets to the curb!
Kat has been working on refining dieting by moving away from the traditional diets we’ve all tried, failed and felt frustrated about. She helps her clients understand and connect with their body resulting in a customized “diet” that works to fuel each person properly which ultimately allows them to reach their goals. Just like here at Fitlandia, Kat’s mission is to end the cycle of yo-yo dieting; the feelings of shame and guilt that come with restricted eating plans or calorie counting; and get back to a place of nourishment and...
Have you heard about the numerous health benefits of fasting and might be considering giving it a try? Well then, you’re in for a treat today as Christa shares with us her very own reasoning and experiences during her first extended fast!
Disclaimer: DO NOT ATTEMPT A FAST WITHOUT THE SUPERVISION OF YOUR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER. Important: this should not be used as a tool for quick weight loss but instead to become quickly keto-adapted or for ultimate vitality.
While already practicing intermittent fasting, a daily eating pattern that cycles between a fasting and eating window, Christa typically eats her last meal around 6 or 7pm and fasts until the following day between 11AM - 12PM. After reaping the benefits from this, she decided to try an extended fast of 72 hours.
