“So many things in our food
system actually are making us sicker. In my quest to heal my son’s
ulcerative colitis, I learned that what actually was working with nutrition was in direct conflict with what
I had been taught during my formal education and past 20 years
experience as a Registered Dietician
That’s what @shana.hussin.rdn
told me during our conversation about taking control of our weight,
health, and illnesses. She explained how the majority of
Americans believe that following standard nutrition will make you
healthier (i.e. eat less, lower your fat intake, and move more)
when in fact, it often can actually be the driver behind obesity
and chronic illness.
It was so fascinating for me to hear Shana tell her story of how she had been in the medical nutrition therapy field for 20 years but then in 2016 her son was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and got severely sick. She found that through nutrition, you can work together with your body to not only lose weight, but reverse many symptoms of chronic illnesses (and the best part...her 14-year old son is thriving and healthy now)
Shana is a master at helping others take control of their weight and health, and now even helps other practitioners and nutritionists who want to understand the core reasons behind obesity and chronic illness.
3 moments you’ll want to listen for:
💫“The timing of your eating is just as important as what you eat”
💫“I don’t give people any kind of special foods, I don’t have them take special supplements, I don’t have them count anything. And they are having sustainable, long term amazing results.”
💫“In our school systems, young kids are being fed breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and often times sugary treats and drinks. What that means is that they are telling their bodies to store energy all day long. This can be one of the biggest drivers for children and weight gain.”
