Ep 140: Cholesterol Is Not The Enemy

5/20/2022
One common misconception is that the lower your cholesterol is, the healthier you are. We’re here to debunk that! Yes, cholesterol that is too high can be a problem, but too low is also a problem. As with everything, it’s all about balance! Let’s talk about the different types of cholesterol, how good cholesterol can be beneficial, and why we rather eat eggs than Raisin Bran.

Ep 139: Your Hormones Vs. Intermittent Fasting We've talked a lot before about intermittent fasting. When to do it, how to do it, and why.

Ep 138: Func Eczema!

5/6/2022
We like to say that our skin is like a mirror because it reflects what’s going on inside our bodies. If your eczema is flaring up, it’s likely not because you forgot to do your skincare routine, but because there’s something not quite right in your system. Food sensitivities, toxic overload, parasites, and even just not taking time to de-stress could be causing your eczema. So, let’s talk about what to do, from the inside out, to get rid of it.

Ep 137: Help! I’m Addicted to Junk Food!

4/29/2022
If you find yourself in a place where most of your diet consists of processed foods, you’ve come to the right place. But first, we want you to know that it’s not your fault. Junk food is quite literally designed to be addictive and it takes way more than willpower to stop consuming it. Let’s talk about how to re-wire your brain to break the cycle of eating processed food, why you should never go grocery shopping when you’re hungry or upset, and what we can do to reset our bodies.

Ep 136: The Fatty Acids Guide, Part II

4/21/2022
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: we don’t guess, we test! And when it comes to a fatty acids panel, there is no difference. Though there are a lot of things that need to happen to your baseline health before we get into that. So let’s talk about that, and when it’s time for testing.

Ep 134: What’s Your Sleep Chronotype?

4/8/2022
Chronotype is just a fancy word to talk about our personal circadian rhythm, or internal body clock. You see, for the most part, we all go to bed at night and wake up in the morning. But have you tried waking up at 5 am to go to a HIIT class only and end up hating everything about it? It’s not you, it’s biology. Maybe try taking that class at 4 pm, and you might love it. Depending on our chronotypes, our body is gonna have different needs at different times of the day. Let’s talk about the 4...

Ep 133: Eat Your Veggies, Kids! (& a very special giveaway)

4/1/2022
So many plants, so little on our plates! When you think about all the vegetables out there and compare them to how many you’re actually eating (Michelle said ~12), you’ll come to the same conclusion we did: our diets are limited. You already know that the benefits of eating vegetables are endless. So let’s talk about why food diversity is so important, why juicing is not the answer, and a fun giveaway to celebrate spring produce and Kendra. Can’t get enough FUNC YOU UP!? Follow...

Ep 132: For Func’s Sake, Stop Counting Calories!

3/25/2022
Diet culture has made us obsessed with calories and counting them. It has embedded this idea that when we talk about food and nutrition, calories are the only thing that matter. This is simply not true! We are not buckets to fill in and empty out. Our bodies are complex! And there are many ways to improve your health (and even lose weight, if that’s what you’re trying to do) that don’t focus on restrictions. Let’s talk about 5 things that we all should be tracking instead of calories. Can’t...

Ep 131: Are You Gonna Eat That?

3/18/2022
Every day we start with our best intentions of being our healthiest selves. But sometimes it’s 3pm and we already ate an entire box of cookies. Overeating happens. And we’re not here to shame you, because we’ve all been there, done that. But let’s talk about why overeating happens, why blood sugar regulation is important (even if you aren’t diabetic), and the importance of fueling our bodies with the right food.

Ep 130: Overnight Weight Gain?

3/11/2022
When you’re on a weight-loss journey there is nothing more discouraging than stepping on the scale and seeing that the number has gone up seemingly overnight. Well, first of all, you shouldn't be weighing yourself every day. And second of all, those 3 pounds are not real. You could be retaining water, building muscle mass, or just full of sh*t, literally. Let’s talk about reasons why you’re suddenly gaining weight, even when you’re doing everything right. Can’t get enough FUNC YOU UP!?...

Ep 129: Signs Your Hormones Are Func’d Up!

3/7/2022
It’s 3 am and you just woke up covered in sweat. Ugh! The worst! If this rarely happens, you probably need better temperature regulation in your bedroom. But if it happens often, we’re sorry to tell you that your hormones might be out of whack. And no air conditioning will fix that. Whether it is too little estrogen, too much cortisol, not enough estrogen, etc. It will make a big impact on how you feel on a regular basis. So let’s talk about some signs you might be experiencing when your...

Ep 128: Vitamin D

2/25/2022
It’s no secret that Vitamin D is one of our favorite vitamins! Not only because we can get it when we go outside in the sunshine, but because it’s just too func’ing major! It’s linked not only to healthy bones but to our mood and even gut health. Let’s shine a light (get it?) on the vitamin D deficiency we all probably have, why we have it (spoiler alert: you live in NY), and what’s the best way to optimize our daily dose of this essential vitamin.

Ep 127: Don’t You Know That You’re Toxic?

2/18/2022
Not to be dramatic but toxins are all around us. In the food we eat, in the air we breathe, and even in our home. And though we do have natural detoxification pathways, sometimes they need a little help and it’s time for a detox. Let’s talk about how to assess your toxic load and why this is such an important deal when it comes to reaching your health and wellness goals. Can’t get enough FUNC YOU UP!?

Ep 126: Getting A-Head of Headaches

2/11/2022
Did you know that headaches are the most common form of pain? We’ve all had them and we’re all guilty of running to the medicine cabinet for some ibuprofen. But if you have a headache because you’re dehydrated, taking ibuprofen doesn’t really solve the problem. It’s just a bandaid! We want to get to the root cause of your headaches (beyond a tight ponytail). And also recommend some of our favorite natural ways to get rid of them! Can’t get enough FUNC YOU UP!?

2/4/2022
A lot of people are trying to lose weight after the holidays and that’s great. If you’ve decided to embark on a weight-loss journey and get control of your health, we’re rooting for you! What we’re not rooting for is trying to measure your success through a Body Mass Index number. Why? Well, for starters, it’s fairly irrelevant to your actual health. Let’s talk about how we should be assessing our bodies and health, what BMI means, and why we shouldn’t be using it. Can’t get enough FUNC YOU...

Ep 124: Red Flags of Inflammation

1/28/2022
We talk about inflammation in pretty much every episode because it’s the root cause of the majority of issues we deal with. But how do we identify acute versus chronic inflammation? And why is one good and the other bad? Let’s talk about markers in your blood that might tell that you’re living with chronic inflammation, and common symptoms you might be experiencing.
