In this episode, we discuss a common scenario. You're doing everything "right" but whatever measure of progress you're using doesn't seem to reflect your hard work. For many of us, that's the number on the scale. We have a tendency to react when things aren't progressing as we'd hoped by trying to make aggressive changes to the things we're doing. What are those aggressive changes? Often it's cutting out foods we love (fun foods) or aggressively restrict calories.Join us as we discuss this important topic!If you're interested in signing up for one or all of Rebecca's workshops referenced in various episodes, you can get complete details here:https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/shopPlease send either of us any questions, comments, or ideas you have for future discussions in this area or any related to child, teen, family, or individual nutrition!Rebecca Heald, Transformational NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rebecca-heald-b9229b159/Web: https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TransNutrition1/IG: @transformationalnutrition1Jeff Ash, Hope Drives Me Training & NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeff-ash-7b004318a/Web: https://hopedrivesme.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/hopedrivesmenutritionIG: @jeffashfitness
What is BMI and how should we interpret the number? What about percentiles on children's growth charts? Should your BMI score immediately give you cause for alarm? Should your child's location on the growth chart be a stern warning that they're headed for a life of obesity if something is not done?Often these numbers are erroneously used as a diagnostic tool without any or much consideration of the whole, individual person. Your BMI or percentile on the growth chart needs to be used appropriately or it can have a negative impact on eating behaviors or push parents to disrupt their feeding practices with their children resulting in negative outcomes.If you're interested in signing up for one or all of Rebecca's workshops referenced in various episodes, you can get complete details here:https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/shopPlease send either of us any questions, comments, or ideas you have for future discussions in this area or any related to child, teen, family, or individual nutrition!Rebecca Heald, Transformational NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rebecca-heald-b9229b159/Web: https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TransNutrition1/IG: @transformationalnutrition1Jeff Ash, Hope Drives Me Training & NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeff-ash-7b004318a/Web: https://hopedrivesme.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/hopedrivesmenutritionIG: @jeffashfitness

The dieting industry and fitness culture push the idea that in order to be happy we must wear a certain size, look a certain way, and have the scale read within a certain range. They don't come right out and say it, but this is the veiled message many people hear this time of year.In this episode, we discuss 3 common approaches to weight loss and dieting and some of the pros, cons, and important considerations when looking at improving your health and/or dropping a few lbs/kgs:Calorie/macro tracking and point-based approachesTime-restricted eating (AKA intermittent fasting)Intuitive eating approaches (and how this concept is often misapplied as a weight loss diet)Also, if you're interested in signing up for one or all of Rebecca's workshops referenced in the episode, you can get complete details here:https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/shopAnd ... if you would like to learn how to approach nutrition with your children and teens in a way that helps but does not harm, make sure to check out Jeff's live webinar, "Equipped to Thrive - Healthy Family" here: https://www.hopedrivesme.com/healthy-family-webinar/Please send either of us any questions, comments, or ideas you have for future discussions in this area or any related to child, teen, family, or individual nutrition!Rebecca Heald, Transformational NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rebecca-heald-b9229b159/Web: https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TransNutrition1/IG: @transformationalnutrition1Jeff Ash, Hope Drives Me Training & NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeff-ash-7b004318a/Web: https://hopedrivesme.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/hopedrivesmenutritionIG: @jeffashfitness
In this episode, we discuss two common topics this time of year (it's the week before Christmas at the time of recording): detoxes/cleanses and "clean eating."Are these helpful for those looking to improve their health and well-being? Are they helpful for weight loss or are they just distractions from the big picture?Also, if you're interested in signing up for one or all of Rebecca's workshops referenced in the episode, you can get complete details here:https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/shopPlease send any questions, comments, or ideas you have for future discussions in this area or any related to child, teen, family, or individual nutrition!Rebecca Heald, Transformational NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rebecca-heald-b9229b159/Web: https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TransNutrition1/IG: @transformationalnutrition1Jeff Ash, Hope Drives Me Training & NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeff-ash-7b004318a/Web: https://hopedrivesme.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/hopedrivesmenutritionIG: @jeffashfitness
The holidays are typically a time for food, family, food, friends, food, celebrations, and did we mention food? And, of course, don't forget the adult beverages that are also quite common.This time of year is also a time for articles and media clips sharing ways to make your holiday meals "healthy", how to change up that favorite recipe to make it "healthy", and how to stay on track with your weight loss during the holidays.Bah, humbug!Holidays and celebrations are a time where the focus should be on the celebratory and social aspects, not the calorie content of a few meals. Remember that health has a physical aspect, yes, but just as important are the emotional, social, psychological aspects. In addition, at the time of this recording, we are in the middle of a worldwide pandemic which means there is an even greater need for nurturing those other aspects of health as well.In this episode, we discuss a number of topics related to festive "play" foods and beverages!Rebecca Heald, Transformational NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rebecca-heald-b9229b159/Web: https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TransNutrition1/IG: @transformationalnutrition1Jeff Ash, Hope Drives Me Training & NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeff-ash-7b004318a/Web: https://hopedrivesme.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/hopedrivesmenutritionIG: @jeffashfitness
In this episode, we delve into the topic of nutrition considerations for your young athlete or highly active child/teen. This is by no means an exhaustive discussion, but rather, it is a great introduction to the topic where we set a foundation of some important principles around feeding. These principles apply to parents of children and teens and those with "hobby" athletes all the way to those with more serious aspirations.We hope after listening to this episode that parents will see the importance of keeping things simple. There is no need to complicate nutrition for our young athletes, even if they are training and competing at a serious level. The foundations will set the stage and cover the bulk of (if not all of) the needs of most children.Keep an eye out for more on this topic in future episodes where we will look at covering some more sport-specific considerations for those interested, and more importantly ready to dive a bit deeper beyond the foundations (because you have the foundations nailed down).Please send any questions, comments, or ideas you have for future discussions in this area or any related to child, teen, family, or individual nutrition!Rebecca Heald, Transformational NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rebecca-heald-b9229b159/Web: https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TransNutrition1/IG: @transformationalnutrition1Jeff Ash, Hope Drives Me Training & NutritionLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeff-ash-7b004318a/Web: https://hopedrivesme.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/hopedrivesmenutritionIG: @jeffashfitness

In this episode, we discuss some of the differences in teaching "food" in contrast to teaching "nutrition" when it comes to educating and equipping our children.

In this episode, Rebecca and Jeff discuss an important concept in feeding our children referred to as the division of responsibility. This model divides the responsibility of the parent and the child in the feeding process. Incorporating this concept helps develop a healthy relationship with food where children don't feel pressure or guilt when eating. It also helps children to develop and nurture their innate ability to regulate their own food intake.Also, if you're interested in signing up for one or all of Rebecca's workshops referenced in the episode, you can get complete details here:https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/shopIf you have any questions about this episode, topic, or anything else related to child, teen, adult, and/or whole-family nutrition, don't hesitate to reach out to Rebecca or Jeff on social media or through their respective web sites:Rebecca Heald, Transformational NutritionWeb: https://transformationalnutrition.co.uk/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TransNutrition1/IG: @transformationalnutrition1Jeff Ash, Hope Drives Me Training & NutritionWeb: https://hopedrivesme.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/hopedrivesmenutritionIG: @jeffashfitness
