“Nutrition is about growth, metabolism, and repair. It's not just about the food we eat or don't eat.” - Andrea Nakayama
If you have a chronic condition, you’ve probably been advised to cut certain foods or food groups from your diet. Whether going gluten-free or dairy-free or switching to a diet like keto or paleo, many people with chronic conditions find themselves on increasingly restrictive diets, struggling to make progress.
A holistic approach to nutrition and health considers the complexity of the body's systems and each person’s individual needs. That means making sustainable changes to improve our lifestyle rather than forcing an overly restrictive diet.
Today I’m excited to chat with Andrea Nakayama, a Functional Medicine Nutritionist, and educator, who has led thousands of clients, and now teaches even more coaches and clinicians around the world in a revolution reclaiming ownership of both their own and their clients’ health.
In this episode, Andrea and I discuss the interconnectedness of all aspects of our health, the role of diet in managing thyroid autoimmunity, why we need individualized nutrition plans, Andrea’s perspective on the limitations of restrictive diets for long-term health, how to make sustainable changes to your diet and lifestyle, and more. Enjoy the episode!
