Is fruit healthy?

Is Fruit Good for Me?

“Is fruit good for me?”. This is a question that I often hear from my patients that are in treatment for obesity and eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, and binge eating disorder. There are many conflicting views on whether it is healthy to incorporate fruit into our everyday diet. The topic can be confusing! On one hand, we hear that it is full of sugar, on the other hand we constantly hear expressions like “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” and “eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.” Let’s look at the sugar content of fruit. Fructose is a form of sugar that is found in fruit ...

Clean Eating Recipe: Chicken, Green Bean, and Mushroom Soup

I made THE most delicious soup yesterday! It only took five minutes  to make and clean-up was a breeze! How’d I make it? I started by sauteing some mushrooms in coconut oil. Next, I added in some sliced up leftover cooked organic chicken breast that was seasoned with basil, garlic, and sea salt. Once the mushrooms were cooked and the chicken was slightly browned, I added in some cooked organic green beans and bone broth. I let it simmer for a few minutes to allow the flavors meld together. The results were incredible! It was satisfying and the flavor was divine! I heated up the leftovers for lunch today, and it was even better! Dr. J. Renae Norton is a clinical psychologist, specializing ...

Eating Disorders, Obesity, and Gastrointestinal Infections

“In recent medical studies it has been estimated that 85% of the North American adult population has at least one form of parasite living in their bodies. Some authorities feel this figure may be as high as 95%.” As we discussed in the article “Why Am I Hungry When I am Morbidly Obese?“, infections are huge source of internal stress. Some infections can remain undetected for years, keeping the body in a chronic state of stress. Chronic stress can have numerous effects on the body including, adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalances, leaky gut, liver issues, premature aging, and increased food sensitivities.Additionally, it can lead to an impaired ability to break down food, maldigestion, and malabsorption of nutrients.

Why Am I So Hungry When I am Morbidly Obese?

“Why am I so hungry when I am morbidly obese?”. This is one of the most commonly asked questions from my obese patients. They often come to me feeling like a failure because they can’t follow the weight loss advice of their physician to “just eat less food”. This is extremely difficult to do when you are always hungry. What could possibly be creating these feelings of hunger? There are primarily two hormones that tell us when we are hungry and when we are full; ghrelin and leptin. Leptin is produced by fat cells; it turns on the signal that tells us we are full and turns off the signal that tells us we are hungry. Ghrelin is produced by ...

Clean Eating Recipe: Tuna Salad

Tuna salad is a favorite food of many of my patients that are in treatment for eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and bulimarexia. It’s easy to make, scrumptious, and full of protein! To avoid some of the not-so-healthy ingredients in store-bought mayo, I make my own. It’s so simple to make. Homemade mayo is mouthwatering and delicious; it beats the taste of store-bought mayo any day! My tuna salad recipe has become a favorite among family, friends, and patients. Organic, pasture-raised, chicken can also be substituted for the tuna to create an amazing chicken salad! What kind of canned tuna is healthiest? According to Dr. Cate Shanahan, it is best to buy tuna that is in olive oil, rather than water. Olive oil preserves the essential omega-3 fats better ...
