#214 Is your diet the stressor? Shame cycle, IF, getting swole, ruining metabolism and what to do about it with Noelle Tarr, NTP, CPT
I polled people on IG last month and almost 80% of people that saw my story said they felt like they have food sensitivities. So, that’s a problem because once you dive into the intricacies of that there is a lot of nuances.
So to help with this & answer the question I get in so many different flavors each week, I’m hosting a live training and Q&A session called “What should I eat? Answering your questions about food reactions and inflammation”.

Along the theme of food, this week on the Less Stress Life Podcast, I talk to Noelle Tarr of Coconuts and Kettlebells about diet stressors. Is your diet stressing you out?
