062: A 3 Year Diaversary Discussion – My Niece Carmel


Tue, Apr 04, 2017


“Diabetes doesn’t just affect me – it affects my whole family. When I was diagnosed, everyone was diagnosed. It’s a multiple person battle.”- Carmel  

 

When my niece Carmel was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes three years ago at the age of 14, I felt sad and helpless. As a diabetes educator, I wanted to support her and her family but I didn’t know how. I finally realized that the best way to do that was to continue to see Carmel for who she is – a sweet person whom I love very much – and know that diabetes is just one small part of her. However, diabetes is a huge part of Carmel’s day to day life, and her family’s life, too! I sat down and talked with Carmel and her mom Gina to find out more about their diabetes journey to share with you as part of my Do MORE with Diabetes series.

I teach people how to eat to make themselves feel good – emotionally and physically – and I truly believe that if you raise your kids to enjoy food because of the way it tastes and the way it makes them feel, you’re teaching them a lesson for life that’s more important than most of the subjects they learn in school.” – Bonnie Taub-Dix

050: Family Mealtime Matters – Jill Castle


Thu, Oct 20, 2016


“Raising healthy kids is one of the hardest jobs of parenthood – from picky eating, childhood obesity, food allergies, sports nutrition, and eating disorders to the endless doubts about what to feed your children.” – Jill Castle

Mealtime is not about what your kids eat; it’s about being together and HOW you feed them—this has an equal, if not stronger effect on overall eating. Dinner together in a positive setting and atmosphere not only helps kids and teens eat healthier, it may curtail negative behaviors like experimenting with drugs and alcohol and other risk-taking behavior. Communication and connection are the keys!

046: A Researcher’s Perspective & Passion for Nutrition – Taylor Wallace


Tue, Aug 23, 2016


It’s not every day you get to hear about nutrition research straight from the expert himself! Dr. Taylor Wallace has a passion for food science and technology that creates a safer, healthier and more nutritious food supply, and a perspective on industry research that may surprise you.

While attending the University of Kentucky, Taylor fell in love with the field of food science and the technology used to create a safer, healthy and more nutritious food supply in a world with a fast-growing population and diminishing natural resources.  He became particularly interested in the functional properties of foods, how different foods affect human health, and how specific diet patterns can be used to prevent the onset of chronic disease.  He spent the next few years focusing his doctorate research on the health-promoting properties of a group of compounds known as “anthocyanins,” the orange-red to blue-violet colors in many fruits and vegetables. 

Today, Taylor focuses much of his professional career on nutrition and lifestyle changes for preventing disease.  He’s worked in academic, company, and not-for-profit sectors of the food industry, and currently owns his own scientific consulting firm, the Think Healthy Group, which he uses to continue his research passion, conduct scientific reviews, author books, and communicate the importance of nutrition, food safety, and food technology.

002: MIndless Eating: Willpower vs Environment - Interview with Brian Wansink


Thu, Apr 02, 2015


Welcome to my Sound Bites podcast where we delve into the science, psychology and strategies behind good food and nutrition.
Today my guest is Brian Wansink, PhD author of Slim by Design and Mindless Eating and Director of the Cornell University Food & Brand Lab.
Did you know we make over 200 food decisions every day? We are ALL mindless eaters. Maybe you're familiar with Dr. Wansink's food lab experiments like the endless soup bowl, or the movie theatre popcorn, or the many other fun research studies he's done to examine why and how we all make food decisions.
Willpower doesn't work! It's easier to change your environment than to change your mind!
On this episode we discuss:
1. The way our homes, schools, restaurants, workplaces, and grocery stores are set up predictably lead us to pick up cookies rather than apples. But just as they’ve evolved to make us overeat, we can easily redesign them to make us slim.
2.    To slim down via willpower is hard. Slim by Design is easy! Use the resources available and make this a movement!
3.    For every place we purchase or prepare food – homes and schools, restaurants and grocery stores – there are slim by design solutions.

001: The Power of Protein - Interview with Doug Paddon-Jones


Wed, Apr 01, 2015


Welcome to my Sound Bites podcast where we delve into the science, psychology and strategies behind good food and nutrition.
Today’s topic is PROTEIN in our diets and it’s relationship to muscles, metabolism, aging and more.

I’m fascinated by the emerging research on this topic for many reasons. First, we’re always hearing about the other macronutrients: carbohydrates/grains and fat (especially saturated fat) – it seems like we hardly ever hear about protein or give it much thought. However, what we DO tend to hear about protein is kind of dismissive: i.e. American’s get enough protein so why talk about it?! But I've seen some compelling research and I want to know: Are we REALLY getting enough protein? Are we paying enough attention to protein in our diets? Do we need a reality check when it comes to some of the assumptions we hear and perpetuate in the media?

Today my guest is Dr. Doug Paddon-Jones, Professor of Nutrition and Metabolism at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, TX.  He currently serves as Director of the Nutrition and Metabolism Laboratory in the School of Health Professions.  Research in his lab focuses on the regulation of muscle mass and function in healthy and clinical populations.  Recent studies have examined topics including exercise, nutrition, the sarcopenia of aging and the physiology of physical inactivity.

000: Welcome to the Sound Bites Podcast


Tue, Mar 31, 2015


Welcome to the Sound Bites podcast! I’m your host Melissa Joy Dobbins. In this podcast I delve into the science, psychology and strategies behind good food and nutrition by interviewing food and nutrition experts such as researchers, authors, academics, dietitians, and more!

I’m doing this podcast to share important information about new research, new books, and new perspectives that don’t get enough air time in the media (or are sensationalized and oversimplified in the media).
Some of my favorite topics and areas of expertise are diabetes, weight management, family nutrition, protein, agriculture, and food safety and technology.
I’ve been a registered dietitian nutritionist for more than 20 years, and I have spent my entire career helping people enjoy their food with health in mind. I’m known as ‘The Guilt-Free RD’ – “because food shouldn’t make you feel bad!” I want you to be informed and unafraid – that means getting credible information and making your own well-informed nutrition and health decisions based on facts, not FEAR.
