Marion Reinson - Eating For Your Health by Suppers
Marion Reinson is the executive director of Eating For Your Health by Suppers, a nonprofit in Princeton, New Jersey that takes nutrition out of the clinic and into the home kitchen, where real change happens.Under Reinson, the group educates participants about how to source and prepare delicious, whole-food meals—without processed ingredients. She works meaningfully and inclusively with all stakeholders including schools, higher-education institutions, older adult communities, faith- and civic-based organizations, businesses, and other local nonprofits to deliver robust, judgment-free nutritional curriculums rooted in science and research.She believes that with the right foods, anything seems possible—improved health, sharper focus, a stronger spirit. A better you. As the executive director of Eating For Your Health by Suppers, Reinson leads a team of experienced medical advisors and dietitians who tailor each program's curriculum to the specific dietary needs, tastes, budget, background, and culture of the course’s participants.That's because Reinson knows every person is unique. No single approach to food is suitable for everyone. So, the nonprofit doesn’t tell you what to eat. Instead, it advises which foods are proven to strengthen your mind and body, leaving the rest up to you. You decide which foods are the best and most practical for you. And they don’t judge.The organization is rooted in several key pillars. The most important one, perhaps, is ensuring a judgment-free environment. Eating for Your Health knows people don't learn well when they feel judged. Here, they never will be.Prior to being appointed executive director, Reinson was an advisory board member for the group under founder Dorothy Mullen, who started the nonprofit by coordinating shared meal meetings in homes and public spaces.Outside nutrition, Reinson has 20-plus years of experience in business consulting, designing strategies to meet the wide-ranging needs of businesses at distinct stages and challenges.In this episode, we break down how to take the overwhelm out of healthy eating. With simple and actionable small changes to your meal planning, shopping, and cooking, you'll be able to discover a healthy food diet that works for you without added stress, expensive ingredients, or time-consuming planning and cooking!Connect with Marion and Eating For Your Health: with Sugar Solved: the show
Netta Gorman - Living (and Loving) Life After Sugar

Netta Gorman - Living (and Loving) Life After Sugar
Until the age of 45, Netta had always eaten "normally"... that is, 3 meals a day, sometimes a snack or two, and treats. She was a self-identified sweet tooth. Not a day went by without her eating chocolate, cookies, or some kind of sweet dessert. And she didn't have a problem with that. She was lucky in that she didn't have a weight problem. But weight isn't the only sign of health. From her early thirties, Netta had been suffering from very slow digestion, with bloating and pain, as well as infertility issues, depression, anxiety, mood swings, achy joints, and signs of a fatty liver. In July 2015, after months of resisting the idea, Netta tried the unthinkable: she cut out sugar, sweeteners, and flour for a period of two weeks - no more!But after only a few days she started feeling so much more energetic! Within a few weeks, her extra weight and cravings disappeared, as well as her cellulite, PMS, and frequent headaches. She had better concentration and mental clarity, better digestion, less joint stiffness, less swelling (no more inflammation), clearer, more glowing skin, and her moods stabilized. Intermittent fasting came naturally as a result of appetite correction a few months after she cut sugar. Now she eats once or twice a day, is never bothered with cravings or the need to snack, and enjoys her food like never before.   Netta now enjoys a more healthy relationship with food because she sees it as a delicious and fun way to nourish herself, not as a calculation of macros and calories. She also has better self-esteem (because she feels and looks so great!). And it's been almost 7 years!   Netta also learned how to make her own probiotic (fermented) foods and drinks as a delicious way to look after her gut health. She makes her own yogurt, kefir, kombucha and lacto-fermented sauerkraut and kimchi.  Netta has an online private community (the After Sugar Club), a website, a YouTube channel, and a podcast called Life After Sugar. In her community, Netta gives personal guidance based on her 7 years of living happily sugar-free. She teaches small but powerful mindset shifts to make your intermittent fasting lifestyle easy, natural, and sustainable so that you can feel healthier with more energy and confidence... and less sugar!In this episode, we break down how to make the transition to living sugar-free, how intermittent fasting plays a key role in long-term success, and just how important it is to find community when starting and maintaining your sugar-free journey.Connect with Netta: with Sugar Solved:

Betty Murray, PhD - The Functional Medicine Practitioner
Betty Murray, PhD-Candidate, MS, CN, IFMCP is passionate about transforming the lives of women who struggle with menopausal weight gain, insomnia, and fatigue. After witnessing firsthand through working with thousands of women across the U.S. and abroad, Betty observed that women (herself included) often wait to live the life they want until after they “fix” the things about our body that they don’t like – their weight, shape or clothing size. She found that when she helped women balance their hormones and reclaim their power, they become unstoppable. Her transformative The Coming Into Our Own Project is a lifestyle brand designed to empower and enrich women’s lives so that they can be the empowered leaders, woman, mother, sister, daughter, and partner they want to be so they can live their legacy.Betty’s interest in nutrition and functional medicine came from her own health struggles. In her early 30s, Betty was diagnosed with colitis. She just knew there was more she could do to get to the root of her disease! Betty’s tenacity led to a 20+ year educational journey that included immersion into the world of nutrition, biochemistry, and functional medicine that has become the backbone of her approach to restoring health. Betty was honored to be among the first 300 Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner with the Institute for Functional Medicine in 2014. Betty holds a Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Biochemistry from American Health Sciences University, a Master of Science in Integrative & Functional Nutrition from Saybrook University and is currently a PhD-Candidate at Saybrook University where she is researching the complex interaction of women’s sex hormones and IBS. She is a member of the American Nutrition Association and the Institute for Functional Medicine.Betty is also the founder and CEO of the Living Well Dallas Functional Medicine Center, a premier integrative multi-specialty functional medicine medical center in 2004. She had a vision of creating a center where medicine together with nutrition, counseling, health coaching and other mind-body treatments work together in partnership to not only treat illness, but also help support patients in preventing and reversing disease. Betty has helped tens of thousands of women and men reverse chronic symptoms, regain their health and transform their lives. Betty is the host of This Functional Life podcast and is a frequently featured nutrition expert on National Fox News Broadcasting, CW33, NBC and CBS. Betty has lectured at leading conferences, including as a Keynote speaker at The Go Red Campaign, C300 Women's conference, and SHEICon2017.In this jam-packed episode, we dive into the science behind chronic disease, genetics, metabolism, and hormones. Connect with Betty Murray: with Sugar Solved:
