Nutritionally Speaking Podcast by Michaela Ballmann

Nutritionally Speaking Podcast

by Michaela Ballmann

Product Details

Description

Nutritionally Speaking was founded in 2009 by Michaela Ballmann while she was a Master’s student at Loma Linda University, California. She started the podcast in order to answer common questions and dispel myths regarding nutrition, whether about the latest craze in trendy diets and supplements or just about what to eat. She noticed that too many people get all or the majority of their nutrition information from television, the internet, testimonials, or friends and family who are passing on what they have heard or read. Her podcast has been broadcasting the truth about nutrition, covering topics such as green tea, high fructose corn syrup, and omega-3 fatty acids. Incorporating mindfulness and compassion, she discusses topics such as intuitive eating, body image, and disordered eating. In addition, she calls into question conventional viewpoints on weight and body size and their relation to health.
