Updated: Jan 9
Julieanna Hever, know as The Plant-Based Dietitian, is the bestselling author of Plant-Based Nutrition (Idiot's Guides), The Vegiterranean Diet, the upcoming book Healthspan Solution, and she's the Nutrition Director of Efferos.
We talk about her upcoming new book, dietary restriction without malnutrition, a term she uses called "macroconfusion", and developing a healthy, well-rounded healthspan diet.
Important topics and points you don't want to miss:
>> "Macroconfusion": Why focusing on macronutrients is not the best way to optimize your diet, and what to do instead.
>> Dietary restriction without malnutrition.
>> Focusing on very high protein intakes (e.g. for strength training) may be at odds with research that shows longevity and healthspan are associated with lower protein intakes.
>> How to follow a healthy, well-rounded healthspan diet.
Mentioned in the episode:
>> Article: Oxidative Priority, Meal Frequency, and the Energy Economy of Food and Activity: Implications for Longevity, Obesity, and Cardiometabolic Disease. Cronise, R. J., Sinclair, D. A., & Bremer, A. A. (2017).
