We’ve all heard the saying; “You are what you eat” but what does that really mean? While the saying is technically a figure of speech, there is some truth to it. You may not be what you eat, but the quality of your life is definitely affected by it.
On this episode of Gather & Glow, host LaKeisha Entsuah chats with board certified vascular surgeon Dr. Brittny Howell about food as energy and how we as women can overcome our constant state of exhaustion by changing our eating habits. They also discuss why fad diets are not sustainable for the long term and what you should be doing instead.
Tune in to hear why this Duke, NYU and Georgetown trained surgeon traded in her scalpel to coach woman into healthier lives.
