#63 - Jo Guy On The Science Of Nutrition, Food & Fat Loss, Milk & Sugar

Jo Guy is a holistic dietitian and certified health coach from Melbourne. Jo is a lover of coconut lattes, Sunday Brekkies, moving around in the sunshine, and travelling.

Jo starts with telling us a little about herself, then proceeds to tell us the difference between a dietician and a nutritionist. She then talks about which nutrients will make a person fat, and the science of the study on nutrition. We then ask her what diet is recommended for someone who wants to lose fat.

Jo talks about the importance of having a holistic approach, then on to what effects a lack of sleep has on losing fat. She then talks about her number one food principle and what you can do during the most important meal of the day: breakfast. She then tells us about her smoothie.
Jo tells us about food and how it can act like a drug. After that, she proceeds to tell us about the nutrients that are needed by high-performance athletes. She also talks about gut health issues. We ask her about what she thinks about the paleo diet for CrossFitters. After that, she talks about how milk can make you bulky, her thoughts on bulking up, and why people crave for sugar. She also shares with us a few meditation practices.
For anyone that wants to be fit, lose weight, or just eat healthy, having the proper nutrition and diet is important. This episode with Jo really helps put emphasis on that thought, and it’s really great to hear these things from someone who is well versed in this particular field. This has been great!
