The Whole View, Episode 442: How Do I Know what Dietary Protocol to Start with?Welcome back to episode 442 of the Whole View. (0:27) Stacy welcomes listeners to the show! She hopes everyone has had a great start to the year so far, but if not, it’s a new month. Today’s topic is dietary protocol. And Stacy hopes listeners have been seeing fewer advertisements and pressure to conform to a dietary standard that could end up making them not feel right. She and Sarah, as always, will approach this topic from the perspective of addressing the difference in the dietary protocols that are focused on health. Stacy also takes a moment to remind listeners that all the information in this show comes from a place of optimizing health. They are not here to tell you to lose weight and fit into your jeans, but rather help you feel better, inside and out. This is a safe place to learn and not to feel pressured.
Listener QuestionSarah reflects on how much this show has documented her and Stacy’s individual health journeys and the ups and downs that they’ve experienced. (4:03) They are not the type of people to hide their challenges to paint a rosy picture or endorse that approach. Their main goal is to endorse a solution-oriented mindset about health, doable, approachable, and sustainable. Sherly asks:
Hello Dr. Sarah and Stacy! I was so happy to find your podcast during these strange times and have found all your Covid shows so helpful. I understand that neither of you strictly follow any of the diets you talk about on the show (AIP, Sarah’s Gut Health Diet and Paleo) but rather used them to find out what worked best for you over time. For those of us just starting out how do we go about picking a diet to start from? Is there a hierarchy here? And where does being a “nutrivore” fit into all of this? Apologies if you have already covered this, but I am slowly working my way through your shows. I have come to trust your recommendations and I would like to re-do my own way of eating, I just don’t know where to start. Thanks in advance for your help!
