The Real Food & Fitness Masterclass is a free 10-day event going live October 27th Through November 5th. Join Now: Laura Schoenfeld, in addition to officially being the individual who introduced me to "fried pickles" at a recent Weston A. Price Foundation conference, is a registered dietitian trained in functional medical nutrition therapy. Her philosophy on nutrition is influenced by ancestral diets, principles of biochemistry, current research, and clinical experience. Through working with hundreds of clients, she has found that under-eating, overly restrictive dieting, inappropriate exercise, and inadequate attention to sleep and stress management is rampant in those trying to solve their health concerns through functional medicine and real food. Addressing these common but overlooked diet and lifestyle issues allows her clients to live their healthiest, fittest, symptom-free life, without being consumed by thoughts of food and exercise. Her work has been featured in magazines such as Prevention, Women's Health, and Reader's Digest. You can find her at or listen to her podcast, "The Ancestral RDs", over on iTunes.

We invite Laura Schoenfeld on today's episode of Body IO FM to discuss her diet strategies to bring her clients back to health. Laura Schoenfeld is a Registered Dietitian and has earned her Masters in Public Health Nutrition (MPH) from The University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in 2013. Laura believes that a person’s health can be drastically improved by changing their diet, but also that the conventional “so-called healthy” diets that many people follow are generally inadequate for long term wellness.
