As most of the world is in lockdown or isolation due to COVID-19, I thought a podcast about self-love and happiness was just what you guys needed. To help me out today, I have trainer and nutritionist, Sierra Nielsen as our special guest! Sierra helps individuals own their worth, build confidence & get healthy from the inside-out. She’s an online trainer, nutritionist and transformation coach starting with the basics of loving yourself first. Please go and check out her Instagram account which is @sierranielsen as she posts the most wonderful, real and helpful content for all those struggling with life, love and self-worth. This podcast is part 1 of a 2 parter with Sierra. In today’s episode we discuss: confidence and happiness, how to respect your own health journey, how to overcome heartache, how to find light at the end of the tunnel and how to ask for help if you’re struggling. So… pop some headphones in and grab a cup of tea because the gold in this podcast is worth paying extra special attention too. If you enjoyed this podcast, please tag me and share it in your Instagram stories and leave me a positive rating or review in the purple Apple Podcast app (in the rating & reviews section underneath the episode lists).

"Health Food", "Super Food", "High Protein", "No Added Sugar", "Low Sugar", "Low Fat", "Baked Not Fried", "Made with Real Fruit", "Gluten Free", "5 Star Health Rating"... Sound familiar? We are bombarded with these health claims every time we enter a supermarket (mostly in the "Health Food" aisle) because the companies that manufacture these products want you to think you are buying healthy products and making healthy choices. MARKETING SELLS! When presented with 2 products, most people will spend more money to buy the "healthier" option. We walk away reassured that we have put our health and wellbeing first, without bothering to look below the surface. This reassurance we feel is what has been described as a "Health Halo" and it is not always a good thing. People should be empowered to look beyond the PR and marketing hype and work out for themselves what is actually in the food they are buying and whether these "Health Halo" claims stack up. This is what this podcast is all about. I talk with Accredited Practicing Dietitian, Savina Rego and together we debunk the most common "Health Halos" and teach you how to shop for food with the confidence of knowing the facts, not the marketing BS. If nutrition label reading and Australia's "Health Star Rating System" is more your thing, don't worry, we cover that as well. If you follow Savina's Instagram (@thesavvydietitian) you'll know this is a passion of hers. Her Instagram is full of infographics comparing foods (compare the pair), comparing portions (portion distortion) and health food aisle fails. Our goal is that, by the end of this podcast, you'll be able to see past the "Health Halos" and be reassured that you are making food choices based on facts rather than skin deep marketing claims. This podcast is brought to you today by my favourite olive oil brand, Cobram Estate. Cobram Estate is Australia's leading producer of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the only brand I use and recommend. For more information about why I love and recommend Cobram Estate EVOO for all its health benefits, visit their website at cobramestate.com.au or their Instagram page @cobramestate If you enjoyed this podcast, please tag me and share it in your Instagram stories and leave me a positive rating or review in the purple Apple Podcast app (in the rating & reviews section underneath the episode lists).

He has a particular interest relating to injury management nutrition (muscle loss mitigation, tendons, inflammation) and optimising body composition for performance & health (muscle gain & fat loss). Andrew provides sports nutrition advice to the Brisbane Broncos rugby league team, the Brisbane Bullets basketball team and the Brisbane Bandits baseball team. Ensure you give Andrew a follow on his Instagram @Andrew_hall_dietitian and check out his website: https://andrewhalldietitian.com for more information. In part 1 of the 2 part series, Andrew and I discussed the emerging area of nutrition for injury prevention and his evidenced based tips to prevent and recover from injury and illness. We talk about minimising fat gain and muscle loss while injured or sick and how nutrition can assist. We also briefly touch on supplementation also so if you haven't listened to that episode, we recommend you go back and listen to it before this one. In part 2 of the series, Andrew and I discuss pre and post workout nutrition (with reference to training fasted vs with fuel on board), supplementation (testing, safety, effectiveness and evidence) with specific reference to protein powder, caffeine, creatine and beetroot. We also chat about how to recover faster between sessions (nothing worse than DOMS), rest day nutrition advice, nutrition tips for training and refuelling the every day athlete. If you enjoyed this podcast, please tag me and share it in your Insta stories and leave me a positive rating or review in the purple Apple Podcast app (in the rating & reviews section underneath the episode lists).

I support this podcast and Leanne so much that I went through the trouble of registering to leave a comment. As a dietitian myself I am always looking to grow my knowledge base. this podcast, from the very first episode I listened to has been a gift, such a collection of knowledge. The best thing about it is that I trust Leanne and I know her messages are evidence based. I shared a lot of the information with my patients the very same day! Thanks Leanne. You have a huge fan in me!
