What advice do you have for someone with Hashimoto's in terms of dietary changes?
Thanks for asking! We love to help. If people do not know what Hashimoto's Disease is, it is a condition where the immune system attacks the thyroid gland, resulting in thyroid gland enlargement/inflammation and hypothyroidism. Because the thyroid is a “conductor,” of sorts, regarding metabolism, energy, body temperature, fertility, muscle strength, and energy - it is important to do what you can medically and nutritionally to get things under control. Without getting too deep into...

Hi would you say that all of these would be healthy to eat while trying to loose weight??
Great question. This kind of digs into my philosophy on cooking after nutrition entered my life, but I won't bore you with that too much. I think eating healthfully is enjoying yourself always, and most of the time with fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains. Sometimes, though, I think it is NECESSARY to indulge in foods that may not be the healthiest, but that you enjoy. To directly answer your question, YES, I think that the recipes on the site are good for trying to live a health...

Question: I want to do a detox. Any suggestions?
I must say, “detoxes” dont REALLY exist biologically. There are, however, a lot of people and “research” that support it, but it's mostly all bologna. The reason for this is- your body detoxes itself throughout the day. The liver is the organ that does that; the kidneys provide a secondary mechanism for filtration. Any “weight” lost will therefore not be fat, it will either be water or lean muscle mass, both of which you need. As you may already know, it's ha...

Should I take CoQ10 supplements?
The short answer to this is: most likely not. The reason industry is marketing this product is because of its use in the basic functioning of cells and ability to deliver energy from folate and niacin (some of the vitamins you need) to form usable energy called ATP. However, your body uses and recycles CoQ10 automatically, so taking a supplement is unnecessary. Claims will include faster mobilization of fats and sugars into energy, as well as preventing cell damage. So, these claims are somew...
