In this episode of our 'Ask Me Anything' series, we're diving deep into the realm of dietary choices with my functional medicine team. From exploring the 90-30-50 trend, emphasizing protein, fiber, and fat intake, to shedding light on nutrition cycling and the sequence of food consumption, we aim to provide clarity on optimizing nutrition for overall well-being. Additionally, we discuss the debate surrounding sun exposure without sunscreen and the emerging popularity of non-alcoholic fizzy drinks, offering insights to help individuals make informed decisions about their health journey. Tune in to gain valuable perspectives on navigating today's evolving health landscape.

A few of my favorite things we cover in this episode:

  • The 90-30-50 Trend: The concept of consuming 90 grams of protein, 30 grams of fiber, and 50 grams of fat per day
  • Nutrition Cycling: The significance of the order in which you consume your food for optimal digestion and nutrient absorption
  • Prioritizing Veggies: Discover how eating vegetables before protein at a meal can offer similar benefits to natural Ozempic
  • Debunking the myth of sunscreen necessity and exploring the potential benefits of short bursts of sun exposure without protection
  • Rise of Non-Alcoholic Fizzy Drinks and the trend of people opting for non-alcoholic fizzy drinks over traditional alcohol and soda options
