Nutritionist, functional mediation practitioner, cognitive behavioral therapist, mindbodygreen class instructor and collective member, and dear friend Dana James has helped more than 3,000 women clean up their eating habits and move closer to their happy weight over the course of her career.
Dana's emphasis on psychology is unique: She believes that in order to lose weight, we need to first address the mental blocks that are holding us back. In her 12 years as a practitioner, she's identified the four personality archetypes that most people fall into. Her brand new book, The Archetype Diet: Reclaim Your Self-Worth and Change the Shape of Your Body, dives into how to find your archetype, identify the mental and hormonal blocks keeping you from your healthiest life, and conduct mind-body exercises that will leave you feeling vibrant. It's a must-read for anyone struggling with their weight or just looking to clean up their relationship to food a bit.
In this jam-packed podcast, Dana introduces the four archetypes and provides some loose food guidelines for each. From there, the Columbia-trained nutritionist breaks down all the healthy eating trends of today, weeding out fact from fiction. Tune in to hear her take on why sugar is not addictive, how to really tell if you have a gluten sensitivity, why nuts aren't as great as people make them out to be, why you should never fast intermittently if you're stressed, and so, so much more.
