Getting Shredded For A Wedding, How To Conquer Fear Of Fruit, Lifting Heavy Stuff & More: The Laura Schoenfeld Podcast

Released Wednesday, 31st May 2017
Good episode? Give it some love!
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 lauraschoenfeldrd.com or listen to her podcast, "The Ancestral RDs", over on iTunes.
