Kristin Kirkpatrick, MS, RD, LD is the lead dietitian and manager of wellness nutrition services at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute in Cleveland Ohio. She is a best selling author, an experienced presenter and an award winning dietitian. Kristin is asking the question, “How are you fueling?” everywhere she goes, in fact you've probably seen her on the Today Show or The Dr. Oz Show asking this very question. Today Kristin joins us on Heath Gig. Kristin admits, though there is a lot of knowledge within her patient base, many of them don’t look at the practicality of nutrition choices in their lifestyle or their own unique genetics. What works for someone might not work for you. She breaks down different diets including mediterranean, low fat, high fat, dash, ketogenic and vegan. Time restricted eating, or reducing the hours of eating to eight to ten hours is helpful. She also believes that unhealthy eating habits often arise from mental issues and stress which must be addressed. In this podcast you will learn the difference between polyunsaturated fats, trans fats, saturated fats, and monounsaturated fats. You will also understand why carbs which are mixed with fiber reduce your net carbs and why BMI and scales are overrated. Join us in this episode for a deep dive into nutrition.
