023: Nora Gedgaudas - Getting The Right Nutrients To Thrive, Increasing Food Quality, and How We Evolved To Eat

Just like a calorie isn't simply a calorie, a nutrient isn't just a nutrient.  For instance, the zinc in pumpkin seeds isn't absorbed the same way as the zinc in red meat, so it doesn't give you the same health benefits.  The source of your nutrients and the quality of that source are fundamental to your health.  Choosing anything less than the highest-quality, most nutrient-dense foods can lead to excess weight, higher risk of metabolic and neurodegenerative diseases, lower energy, and worsened cognitive function. That's why today I sat down with board-certified nutritional consultant and primal eating expert Nora Gedgaudas to talk all about nutrients. Nora is also a board-certified neuro-feedback specialist, best-selling author, speaker, teacher, and researcher with over 20 years of clinical experience.   In this episode, she breaks down which nutrients we need the most and how to get them from our diet, while dispelling common nutrition myths.
