Have you tried all the popular diets and weight loss strategies, but still don’t feel your best? 

Many times it’s because what works for someone else - won’t always work for you. 

In fact, we are all unique biochemically and our needs change from season to season, so the only way to find your perfect diet and lifestyle is to tune into your body’s feedback. 

Which is why today’s podcast with Renee Belz and Lauren Sombarto (aka The Biohacker Babes) is devoted to beginner biohacking, optimizing the foundations of health (sleep, movement, food) and how to use technology to reconnect to your intuition.

These two ladies are wise, fun, feisty and full of helpful tips and tricks. Here are some of the fascinating things you’ll learn: 

  • A common mistake that reduces sleep quality
  • The benefits of methylene blue (and what you need to know before you buy it)
  • How to use biohacking to get in touch with your intuition
  • What is heart rate variability (HRV) and why you should measure it
  • The simplest way to increase HRV
  • Tips for better sleep
  • How alcohol affects (HRV) and how to minimize its negative impacts
  • Their favorite biohacking-approved wine
  • Helpful supplements for iron issues 
  • Energizing and calming herbs
  • The best (and worst) ways to add supplements
  • The healing power of sound
  • Their favorite biohacking devices
  • And so much more!

I hope you love this show as much as I did - don’t forget to tag someone in the comments who you think will love the show. 

Happy biohacking!

Children born to moms with poorly controlled blood sugar during pregnancy have a 6-19x increased risk of diabetes or obesity.

Unfortunately, our current dietary recommendations for carbohydrates during pregnancy are way too high for many individuals which can cause unstable blood sugar.

Many leading organizations also claim that vegan diets are safe for pregnancy, yet, according to registered dietician, Certified Diabetes Educator and author, Lily Nichols, there are many reasons to doubt their safety.

To help feel empowered rather than confused around prenatal nutrition, this week's podcast is devoted to how to eat for the healthiest pregnancy and children possible.

Here are some of my favorite takeaways:

  • Why our dietary guidelines for pregnancy are a house of cards
  • The nutrient we should be getting 3x more of
  • The 4 nutrients you need to avoid anemia
  • Two little-known nutrients for bone health (according to new research!)
  • How many carbs you actually need during pregnancy
  • Why protein recommendations are too low for later pregnancy
  • Optimal protein targets for pregnancy
  • The consequences of a low-fat diet for women’s hormones
  • The nutrient deficiency linked to regressions in infancy and early childhood
  • The nutrient 80% of American women do not get enough of during pregnancy
  • Are vegan diets safe during pregnancy?
  • 3 ways to upgrade your health today
  • And so much more!

If you are a mom, planning to get pregnant or know someone who is - please share this podcast so we can help spread the good word.

Happy, healthy New Year, everyone!
