        Nutrition and Aging With Anne Danahy

        We all want to be able to age gracefully and live active, independent lives when we get older. Nutrition and aging are deeply related, but many of us aren’t sure how to start a healthy diet — some of us have been eating mostly processed foods for years.  On this segment of Just Ask David, we have special guest Anne Danahy here to speak with us about how to have a healthy diet as we age. Anne is a registered dietician and nutrition communications consultant, specializing in women’s health. Anne has also written dietary pieces for numerous health and nutrition publications. Nutritional Needs for Middle Aged Adults Diet impacts how you age, not just in terms of health and disease, but also how you look and feel. There are foods and diet patterns out there that make us feel better — mentally and physically.  Nutritional requirements for middle aged adults are a bit different from that of younger adults. Our metabolisms tend to slow down when we age, making it easier for us to gain weight. But instead of focusing on eating less overall, Anne suggests focusing on what you can eat more of — the foods that can speed […]

        How Influencers and Social Media Changed the Makeup Industry with Sheila Arkee

        The makeup industry is just one of many markets that have been transformed by the internet and social media in recent times. Sheila Arkee is this morning’s special guest, and she’s here to talk about the makeup industry boom in the last few years, thanks to social media. Sheila has over 15 years of experience as a professional makeup artist and is the owner of the blog, Painted Ladies.   Makeup News Spreads Faster Than Ever Before the internet and social media became accessible to virtually everyone around the world, makeup news and breakthroughs traveled a lot more slowly — via commercials and magazines.  In the past five years, the makeup industry has experienced tremendous growth. From celebrities to internet makeup sensations, everyone can promote their favorite new makeup brands and products to the entire world.  Now, we don’t have to rely on the makeup recommendations of our family and friends — we can make an educated decision ourselves by just hopping online.    How Has the Makeup Industry Changed? Everyone is more educated about makeup quality in general because of how quickly people can exchange ideas through social media. From professional makeup artists and makeup lovers alike, everyone is […]

        Motherhood: Self Love and Balancing Wellness with Heather Brown

          Being a mother is hard. And there isn’t a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all answer for questions about balancing parenting with other aspects of your life.  Our special guest today is Heather Brown, the blogger behind the mommy lifestyle and self care blog, My Life Well Loved. Heather is here to talk about how to balance the joys of motherhood with other aspects of your life.   A Balanced Lifestyle is a Healthy Lifestyle Many of us are finding that living a balanced lifestyle is impossible when there’s just not enough time in the day to do everything we need (and want) to do. Life is all about balance. A life out of balance is not a life that is being enjoyed. A great way to juggle all of your responsibilities and bring some balance back into your life is making lists of everything you need to is to make lists of what you need to do that day. As you check off another task from your list, it really helps you get back into the rhythm of life and feel like you’ve accomplished something today.   Self Care is Not Selfish Being a mother means there will be times when you […]

        How to Promote Healthy Gut Bacteria in Your Diet with Alex Caspero

          The effects of processed foods on our health are becoming a real concern these days. It’s hard to avoid processed foods when our lives are becoming busier and more fast-paced. But processed food products have been proven to cause the growth of “bad” bacteria in our stomachs.  Our special guest, Alex Caspero, is here to talk about the importance of gut health and how it affects our overall health. Alex is the owner of the award winning blog, Delish Knowledge, and the author of Fresh Italian Cooking for the New Generation. Gut Health: What Does it Mean? Healthy bacteria in the gut occurs in our bodies naturally and helps us fight off infection. But when bad gut bacteria outweighs our healthy gut bacteria, the risk of gut permeability and inflammation rises significantly. Probiotic foods, like sauerkraut and yogurt, promote the growth of this good bacteria. Eating fermented foods can improve gut health, which is proven to strengthen your immune system. It’s no wonder probiotics and healthy gut bacteria are hot topics in the health industry lately. Healthy is Beautiful Bad bacteria in the gut from eating processed foods can cause inflammation, particularly of the skin. Adding more non-processed, healthy, […]
