138: Meg Doll on Carbohydrate Intake for Female Hormones

October 24, 2018

Meg Doll is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Restorative Wellness Practitioner, specializing in eating disorder recovery, mental health, and self love. After overcoming anorexia, Meg made it her life mission to empower women with the tools they need to love themselves fully and make friends with food. Meg works with women around the globe, offering comprehensive diagnostic testing as well as group coaching programs. She is also the host of The Unbreakable You podcast and founder of Nourished & Free, her global essential oil community where she supports women in using their inner wisdom to take care of themselves naturally and fall in love with themselves throughout the process!

In this episode, Meg and I recap my trip to Canada and discuss how Canada and the U.S. differ. We also talk about all of the new foods we tried while I visited and the stigma around various nutrient-dense foods. The bulk of this episode is about CARBOHYDRATE INTAKE! We discuss the importance of carbs for female hormones, what causes the fear around carbs, and how carbs can impact digestive health. We also chat about carbs and weight loss, if you should adjust fat intake when you increase carbs, and how the paleo diet is naturally low carb. We explain how the hypothalamus affects hormones, how carbohydrates support the hypothalamus, and more!
