Here’s what you’ll take away from our down-to-earth talk: - Trust your gut (literally) when it comes to what you eat as a mom or mom-to-be. - Iron’s super important during pregnancy and after, and it's not just about how much you eat, but how your body takes it in. - Plant-based diets and pregnancy can be a tricky combo. We chat about the importance of iron and where to get it. - Protein is a big deal for energy and mood, especially when you’re growing a little human. - Food isn't just food; it's about long-term health for you and your kiddo. - Self-care isn't selfish. It's key for being the best mom you can be. - We talk healthy fats for brain development and why butter is way better than those nasty vegetable oils. - The first 40 days postpartum are all about rest, bonding, and boundaries.

Ep. 25 | Beyond the Plate: Unpacking Nutrition Myths with Chris from Hippocrates
Join us in this conversation with Chris, the mind behind Hippocrates, a forward-thinking meal delivery service in Queenstown. In this episode, we delve into an array of nutrition and health topics, examining the often misunderstood role of red meat in our diets, the pervasive influence of processed foods, and the potent impact of marketing within our food environments. Chris opens up about his transition from veganism, sharing his belief in the benefits of natural, unprocessed foods and his personal health revelations. We explore the importance of fibre, the detrimental effects of a diet heavy in processed foods, and the significant role of marketing in shaping our food choices. Chris's journey to creating Hippocrates is a tale of innovation born from necessity, aiming to provide convenient, healthy meals that counteract the modern-day food system crisis. Key Takeaways: - Red meat, when sourced ethically and consumed in moderation, can be a part of a healthy diet, contrary to its unfair demonization. - Processed foods, often disguised as healthy choices with strategic marketing, can have a lasting negative impact on our health and well-being. - Understanding ingredient lists is crucial; a shorter list often denotes a less processed product, better for overall gut health. - Consistent, healthy eating habits are fundamental to reap the long-term benefits of a nutritious diet. - Accessibility and convenience offered by services like Hippocrates can be a game-changer in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Chapter Recap: - We start by setting the scene for our discussion on health and nutrition.

Ep. 24 | Navigating Nutrition Advice & The Social Media Landscape
In our latest episode, I had a captivating conversation with Marie Maischberger about how health experts navigate the landscape of social media. Together, we peeled back the layers on the role social media plays in shaping public perception of health messages, highlighting the contrast between European and New Zealand approaches. I shared my personal strategies for discerning reliable information from the rampant misinformation online, underscoring the importance of scrutinising sources and the motives behind the messages we receive. We also pondered the significance of personal responsibility when it comes to filtering through health information on these platforms, and the intricate challenges faced in attempting to regulate this digital space. Our dialogue ventured into the realm of nutrition, where I discussed the necessity of explaining why certain food choices can enhance health and the imperative of customising nutrition to fit individual needs. Takeaways from the Discussion -Social media is a prevalent yet precarious platform for health information, often marred by inaccurate content. -Health professionals view and interact with social media content through diverse lenses, shaping their engagement. -It's crucial to critically assess health information on social media and be wary of the intentions behind it. -Individuals should take charge of their social media feeds, carefully selecting reputable sources to follow. -The complexity of overseeing health messages on social media underscores the need for users to be judicious in what they accept as truth. -Clear communication about the virtues of healthy eating is essential, as is customising dietary advice to individual needs. -While social media can be a potent tool for health advocacy, it demands an informed and questioning approach to protect against misinformation. -Recognising the disparities in food standards and choices internationally is key to a well-rounded understanding of nutrition.

Kate Ivey | Habits, Holidays, Hangovers, The Special K Diet & Fitness Without Barriers
Kate Ivey is the founder of DediKate - a community based, balanced and holistic approach to health and fitness, everyday life, family and fun. Kate and I discuss both our journeys with coaching and never wanting to get into 'mindfulness'. Now we're eating our words... a little at least. We run through my five Lifestyle Design Secrets (Mindset, Environment, Habits, Movement & Nutrition) in both life and business. Far from dry, our tangents take us down a number of philosophical rabbit holes and even further down memory lane. Remember the Special K diet? University eating and drinking? And we delve into our more recent antics on holidays. The struggles we face travelling with friends and striking a balance. .................................. About Dedikate (there is a Free Trial for anyone tempted) At DediKate they focus on fitness, strength, nutrition and a positive mindset. As Kate and I discuss, it's not about short-term weight loss or fad diets; but rather about the long term, building your old lady body and getting the most out of life! They make working out easy; you can do their workouts anywhere and anytime. From the NZ High Country to the Australian Bush and everywhere in between, the DediKate app is home to their down-to-earth trainers. A lot more than just your standard fitness app. .................................. In this podcast we focus our conversations around fitness, nutrition & mindset. Based on real life experiences.

Ep. 8 | Meet Ben - 17kg Down, How That Feels, Coffee, Chocolate, Anxiety Weight Gain, Emotional Eating & Lots More
Meet Ben, who has lost 17kg throughout our 12 weeks together and is now navigating his health journey from 118kg down to 98kg and exactly how that feels. Saucy Starter: We’ve known each other for 15 years. We start with a trip down memory lane, in Greece and our downfalls! Weighing in at the start and end of the season. How much of what we did back then would be frowned upon now? Probably a lot! Carbs on carbs, booze & bread baskets. We talk about anxiety eating when work is too busy. Emotional eating. Coffee. Chocolate. Fatherhood, Confidence and a HELL of a lot more. Our chat focuses (loosely) around Ben’s journey and feedback on his 12 weeks. ……………… Main Course: A few words to describe your experience: Life changing What are some of the key changes you have felt? Sugar cravings have all but disappeared. Comfort eating has pretty much diminished. Your Starting Weight (KG): 115 Your Current Weight (KG): 98 How quickly did you start to notice a change in your body, moods or feelings of confidence? Week 1 What has been your key learning?: I have the self control when I need to Would you go back to the way you were eating?: Yes. But with knowledge that I can control and manage it comfortably Did it feel harder or easiest than you thought it would be to make changes? Harder Is what you learnt flexible to your lifestyle?: Yes. Budgeting will be the main concern Now, did you not eat steak for breakfast every day? What would you say to someone, in a painful place, lacking knowledge or body confidence, but scared to try and change?: Talk. Talk to people in the know. Ask question after question. Once you have someone in your corner, the accountability kicks in and the decisions become easier. Even if the process is still difficult. Takeaway Dessert: Ben’s Favourite Recipes & his recommendations on what to do if you’re feeling stuck. .......................
