Why is eating healthy so confusing? Many times we don’t know where to start or if we do start and pick a plan, we are then told this way of eating is out and some new diet is best.
Wading through the mountain of information online leads to even more confusion as we find ourselves asking: is gluten bad, what kind of dairy is best for you, what’s the deal with natural or unrefined sugars?
In this episode, Taylor Morgan joins the show to explain where to start when optimizing nutrition and how to make the best dietary choices for YOUR body.
Taylor is a certified physician’s assistant who also has her bachelor’s degree in nutritional science. This gives her an exceptionally holistic view of health and wellness, which she uses to help patients overcome the root cause of their symptoms. She discovered her passion for functional medicine at the beginning of her dietetics career, after using a functional approach to overcome hormonal imbalances, digestive complications, and thyroid issues.
In this episode, Seth and Taylor discuss:
- How Taylor used diet and nutrition to treat her digestive issues
- How functional nutrition plans are individualized and personalized
- What is optimal for your body right now and what’s optimal for your body long term can be two different things
- Who should avoid gluten?
- How dairy impacts autoimmune diseases
- Tips for ordering gluten-free at a restaurant
- Where to find hidden sugar on processed food labels
- How to avoid overwhelm when optimizing your diet
- Using food as medicine
Taylor’s health tip: The first thing you should drink in the morning is water. Staying hydrated throughout the day is essential to great health.
