Dr. Elana interviews Dr. Michael Goran and Dr. Emily Ventura, authors of the popular book, Sugarproof - The Hidden Dangers of Sugar That Are Putting Your Child's Health at Risk and What You Can Do!  

Michael contributes over three decades of childhood nutrition research while Emily brings her experience as a public health educator to create a book that we believe all parents can benefit from!

This book is NOT about avoiding sugar 100% or demonizing this food. Their goal is to help families navigate through the overwhelming amount of sugars and sweeteners in our food environment and implement simple strategies to cut down on sugar to a healthier and enjoyable level.

By the end of this episode, you will have actionable steps with what you can do to reduce your child’s sugar consumption, especially during this holiday season!

Topics Discussed:

  • Why sugar is a confusing and overwhelming topic with 200 different names for them
  • 5 tips for how to handle sugar at birthday parties
  • Why Agave should be avoided along with fruit-based sugars
  • Top preferred sugars to focus on 
  • The rule of using less added sugars even including healthier options such as honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, and date sugar
  • How a 7-day challenge can reset sweet taste preference
  • How artificial sweeteners can affect the gut and cause a sugar dip
  • How liquid sugars are among the worse of all sugars and how important it is to dilute or better yet find healthier alternatives 
  • Sugarproof No-Bake Pumpkin Pie Recipe

In this episode, Dr. Elana interviews Julie Sawaya who is the co-founder and co-CEO of Needed, one of our amazing podcast partners. Needed is a perinatal nutrition company focused on optimal nourishment before, during, and after pregnancy. Julie is also a mama to a 1-year-old girl, and she is preparing to conceive again after a recent pregnancy loss. During this interview, Julie shares her story about her recent experience with a first-trimester pregnancy loss at 11 weeks gestation, and the surprise and disappointment that can come with this. They discuss what a mama can do to nourish herself during and after pregnancy loss to recover and heal, and also to prepare to conceive again, as many loss families aim to do.  We tend to blame ourselves for loss, and it can be easy to distrust our bodies. This episode will give you an action plan of what you can do to nourish yourself, your partner, and find trust in your body again!

  • What can women do nutritionally to prepare their bodies to conceive again after loss
  • What lifestyle factors can nourish a mama after pregnancy loss
  • What can men do to prepare their bodies to conceive again after loss
  • How can the process of nourishing your body after loss help to rebuild trust and acceptance in your body
  • How is Needed working to support women and their partners following loss
