Nutrient Density Chat with Dr. Sarah Ballantyne
Show Notes

Almost all of us are walking around with nutrient shortfalls.

In the health and wellness community, we define diets based on what foods they consider good or bad. The problem is that it often leads to an increasingly restrictive approach focused on avoidance and moral judgments instead of nutrition.

Recognizing these issues, today’s guest Dr. Sarah Ballantyne decided to create a resource that would help people push back against diet culture simply and logically. That’s how Nutrivore was born.

Award-winning public speaker, New York Times bestselling author, and world-renowned health expert, Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, PhD, believes the key to reversing the current epidemics of chronic disease is scientific literacy. She creates educational resources to help people regain their health through diet and lifestyle choices informed by the most current evidence-based scientific research. With Nutrivore, Dr. Sarah seeks to create a positive and inclusive approach to dietary guidance based on science and devoid of dogma, using nutrient density and sufficiency as its basic principles: nourishment, not judgment.

In this conversation, Dr. Sarah and I talk about why most of us are likely to have nutrient insufficiencies, how you can apply Nutrivore principles, what Nutrivore Scores tell you, whether we should be concerned about the sugar in fruit, the importance of making sustainable changes, and more.

I’ve been following Dr. Sarah for a long time, and she’s been someone I have wanted to interview since I started this podcast. I was absolutely thrilled to have this conversation, and Dr. Sarah shared many valuable insights you can apply. Enjoy the episode!
