These issues will be discussed and covered in NC107, Nutrition Counseling.  Meanwhile, we advise students to preserve relationships with friends and family and do not offer nutritional advice until asked.  I am certain that you will be able to find tasty ways to incorporate healthy foods into his meals without mentioning it to him.

An addiction is the compulsive, out-of-control use of a substance that produces  unpleasant withdrawal effects. Do strawberries make you feel awful a few hours after eating them? Do you suffer withdrawal symptoms if you don't have them every few hours or every day? if not, that is not an addiction, just a preference (or true love). Perhaps strawberries provide you with some nutrients you need. Relax and enjoy fresh organic strawberries in seasonalong with a wide variety of whole foods.
Nutrition News & Research / Re: The role of fasting in SIBO
« Last post by Laura Knoff on April 11, 2019, 05:06:17 PM »
Interestingly fasting can be used to reduce the symptoms of SIBO, if the fasting is not excessive and overall nutrients are adequate. When people fast and do not get enough nutrition the thyroid, digestion, immune system and IC valve may not function efficiently.  Many diets can contribute to SIBO because they have too much of the fermentable carbohydrates such as beans, grains, and starchy vegetables. When carbs ferment they can create gas, bloating and toxic byproducts that irritate the small bowel. Go to SIBOINFO.ORG  for more information on the causes and treatments for SIBO.
Nutrition Talk / Re: Collagen Supplements

The health of the skin reflects the overall health of the body. We make adequate and high quality collagen when we have all the nutrients, and specifically vitamins C, A, B complex, zinc and water.  Bone broth and eating the chicken with the skin will provide the raw materials for collagen formation. Taking collagen without the vitamins and minerals needed will not. Vitamin A (retinol) is needed for protein formation. Isolated protein powders do not provide retinol. Meat, fish, poultry and their organs provide retinol and protein along with all the nutrients except the vitamin C, which we can get from fresh raw vegetables and fruit.  To look younger reduce stress, drink adequate water and eat a wide variety of real food, including broth.
Nutrition Talk / Re: Eating for ( female) hormone regulation

Interesting questions and observations. Stress is probably the biggest contributer to hormone dysregulation and mood disorders associated with the menstrual cycle. No doubt micromanaging the diet will add to that stress! Relax. If you feed yourself with all the nutrients needed and in the proper ratios the body regulates itself with ease. Depending on the symptoms some women need more of certain nutrients. We see  positive results when essential fatty acids are adequate and in balance, and when all B vitamins and minerals (especially magnesium, iron and zinc are sufficient and balanced. Making sure you are digesting your food will ensure that the whole nutritious foods you eat are being absorbed.  The healthiest people in the world eat the widest variety of foods and in adequate amounts, and relax and enjoy their meals. You will learn more as you learn to analyse your diet and discover what foods you need to fill in any gaps. Meanwhile consider daily meditation, gratitude journalling, yoga or any activity that brings relaxation and peace of mind.

Hi Elena, I'm on a quest for the same info, and would love to learn more.

Before starting this nutrition class, I had resigned myself to the fact that, once a month for the rest of my life, I will experience an almost-debilitating drop in my mood (often diagnosed as "premenstrual dysphoric disorder", or PMDD).

What a grim outlook...

Luckily, I discovered this class! I now have a hunch that food and proper nutrition might be the key to helping stabilize my mood amidst hormonal fluctuations.

My housemate is trying the "alternating seed blend" approach you mentioned, without notable results since she started 3 months ago, she says, and it does seem to require some very careful (a.k.a., not convenient!) planning and dedication. So I'm not convinced that's a good approach for me, either...

In the meantime, you might enjoy a few select episodes of a podcast that I've recently discovered, called "Funk'tional Nutrition", hosted by two functional nutritionists. It's upbeat and science-based, with a hearty serving of feminism in every episode!

Check out the hormone-related episodes 45 and 48:

Enjoy, and good luck! Keep us posted.
Nutrition Talk / Re: Type 1 diabetes and vegan diet
« Last post by Laura Knoff on April 10, 2019, 05:50:20 PM »
Hi Colette,
Your initial reaction to a vegan diet is not unusual. Your body was likely using up some of its debris proteins and fats if you were consuming fewer calories generally. Hopefully you were already avoiding refined carbohydrates, hydrogenated fats and processed foods. Eating plenty of fresh raw vegetables will provide more vitamin C, fiber, folate and potassium, but with much fewer calories so that could help you feel better. One does not have to be overweight to have stored excess fat in the liver and pancreas due to excess sugar/carbohydrate intake. Having some animal protein can provide needed vitamins and minerals, specifically B12, retinol, cholecalciferol, and zinc that a vegan diet is difficult or unable to do. You can monitor yourself to discover what gives you more energy without spiking blood sugar, causing you to need more insulin. You may find that havng small amounts of high quality animal proteins is what works best for you. The healthiest people have the widest variety of fresh whole foods in the diet, along with movement and happiness. Enjoy the journey.
Nutrition Talk / Re: Freezing your smoothie ingredients? Yay or nay?
« Last post by Laura Knoff on April 10, 2019, 05:31:37 PM »
Your roomate is wrong.
Freezing slows down destruction of vitamins and phytonutrients. Minerals are not at all affected. In fact, flash frozen vegetables and fruits are sometimes more nutritious than fresh because they are frozen so quickly after harvesting. Some vegetables and fruit are blanched before freezing which will only slightly reduce some vitamins. You would lose even more vitamins if you do not have the smoothie at all. Keep up the good work.
