FFF 096: Why Netflix & Bad Science Harms The Vegan Movement - with Laura Thomas PhD

In this episode, we speak to Laura Thomas who loves to call BS when she sees nutrition misinformation being spread! She did her undergrad nutrition degree in Health Sciences at the University of Aberdeen before heading across the pond to do her PhD in Nutrition at Texas A&M University.

On a personal note, Laura became a vegetarian at 10 years old and later a vegan when she was a student. However, she bases her own nutrition approach on ethics and evidence, not fear-mongering and pseudoscience.

We dedicate a huge section of this podcast to discussing many of the myths that surround the vegan diet. Laura gives us an incredibly honest review and evidence-based of the controversial Netflix film, “What the Health”. In our discussion, she exposes how the filmmakers used some dodgey science and cherry-picked data to support some of their outrageous claims.

We also touch upon what it means to eat intuitively and what’s right for your body, rather than banning foods and trying a one size fits all FAD diet.

Fat loss should be simple, right?

You eat a little less, move a little more, and the fat should start to fall off. It sounds so straight forward but if you’ve ever tried to lose weight in the past then you know it is never that easy.

FFF 096: Why Netflix & Bad Science Harms The Vegan Movement - with Laura Thomas PhD

On a personal note, Laura became a vegetarian at 10 years old and later a vegan when she was a student. However, she bases her own nutrition approach on ethics and evidence, not fear-mongering and pseudoscience.

We dedicate a huge section of this podcast to discussing many of the myths that surround the vegan diet. Laura gives us an incredibly honest review and evidence-based of the controversial Netflix film, “What the Health”. In our discussion, she exposes how the filmmakers used some dodgey science and cherry-picked data to support some of their outrageous claims.

We also touch upon what it means to eat intuitively and what’s right for your body, rather than banning foods and trying a one size fits all FAD diet.

Fat loss should be simple, right?

You eat a little less, move a little more, and the fat should start to fall off. It sounds so straight forward but if you’ve ever tried to lose weight in the past then you know it is never that easy.

FFF 077: Nutrient Timing, Does It Really Matter When You Eat? - with Lawrence Judd

If there is one subject that causes the most confusion for folks looking to lose weight it has to be meal timing. Should we eat little and often to boost metabolism? What if we skip breakfast? Do we need protein after a workout? How often should we eat protein? Is fasting a good idea? To answer all of your burning meal timing questions, we have nutrition coach Lawrence Judd from Shredded By Science on the show.

In this episode we’ll cover what the science says about how often we should eat, if it’s better to split up your protein intake throughout the day compared to eating it in less servings, why breakfast isn’t the most important meal of the day, when you should have protein after a workout and why intermittent fasting might help you burn fat and break through weight loss plateau.

For example, did you know that serving your food from the stove away from the dining table will prompt you to eat 19% less food! Or that a person who has breakfast cereal sitting on the worktop on average weighs 21 pounds more than their neighbour who doesn’t? Or that a messy kitchen causes you to snack 44% more often!

It doesn’t get better at work either, Brian explains that people who have snacks in or on the desk reported weighing 15.4 pounds more than those who didn’t.

FFF 022: How To Improve Your Gut Health & Nutrition Considerations For Cyclists – with Laura Tilt

Laura Tilt is Registered Dietitian and health writer specialising in weight management, fat loss, sports nutrition and the low FODMAP diet. She is one of our Food For Fitness dieticians who works with our online clients helping them to lose weight, gain muscle or improve their sporting performance. She is also the nutrition expert for kiqplan and is a regular contributor in Running Fitness, Cycling Fitness and Cycling Weekly magazines.

In the first half of the podcast, Laura and Scott chat about gut health. Improving gut health is one of those extremely important subjects that is shrouded in misunderstanding and myths are often perpetuated by those in the industry who don’t really know much about what they’re talking about. Thankfully, Laura is an expert in this field. She explains how we can improve the health of our gut, some of the causes of digestive discomfort, her thoughts on gluten and ‘inflammatory foods’ and we review the evidence and benefits of probiotics.

Laura also chats about her experiences with the low FODMAP diet. The FODMAP diet (Fermentable, Oligo-saccharides, Di-saccharides, Mono-saccharides and Polyols) has been developed in Australia and has been shown to improve the symptoms of people with functional gut disorders like IBS. A recent evaluation found that 76% of patients that had seen a FODMAP-trained dietitian reported improvement in symptoms. Impressive stuff!

In the second half of the show, we move onto sports nutrition for cyclists. Laura explains exactly what cyclists should aim to have before a ride, during and after. We’ll cover some supplements that may improve performance, some pre-race meal ideas and exactly what kind of carbohydrates can improve performance and provide sustained energy.
