The Fitnessista Podcast: Healthy In Real Life

Jun 5, 2019

Emily Field is a registered dietitian who wants to help you end food confusion. She teaches a macro-based, balanced eating approach so you can protect metabolism, gain lean strong muscle, lose body fat in a stress free way. I’ve worked with Emily for about a year now, and she completely transformed the way I think about nutrition and how I fuel my body. I’m eating more, I’m not hangry, I don’t suffer from energy crashes, and I’ve gained some lean muscle since I started working with her. 

Emily is the REAL DEAL and provides so much incredible free content to her audience, including nutrition tips on Instagram, low-cost downloadables available on her website, and offers group coaching opportunities and one-on-one coaching opportunities. 

During this time of year, we’re flooded with messaging about “summer bodies,” “fitting into our bikinis,” and extreme summer diet plans. This messaging can make women feel even more pressure to make unrealistic changes for physical results. In this episode, Emily and I chat about the Bikini Body mindset and how it’s really a mental state instead of a physical trait, and how small acts of self care can be used to boost confidence. 

In this episode, we talk about:

- How to avoid falling for these marketing gimmicks

- How to create a self care routine

- What to do if listeners are considering a drastic move with their fitness and nutrition

- How macro tracking fits into a balanced eating approach

and an “Ask the RD” segment with 

the following topics:

- Ideal pre- and post-workout fuel (+ my worst race advice ever haha)

- How do you heal your metabolism?

- Her thoughts on Intermittent Fasting for weight loss or fat loss

- Foods she recommends for PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)

Find Emily Field RD on her website and check out her Instagram here. If you’re curious about WHAT your nutrient needs are and want to get started tracking macronutrients, her Macros Guide is for you. She'll help you calculate your protein, fat and carbohydrate needs based on a few questions about your health history, workout of choice, food preferences and more. Get the Macro Guide here.
