What is your biome? How does it affect your health? Your behaviour? And even your weight?
Dr Orlena chats to Lisa Kilgour, nutritionist to find out.
The perfect diet for you is different from the perfect dier for your best friend. Just because something works for you, doesn't mean that it's going to work for anybody else.
We have to really listen to what our body wants and ask ourselves "Am I eating the best way?"
We are 50% bacteria.
There is this huge ecosystem about equal to the number of cells we have in our body.
It is called a microbiome, a community of bacteria, parasites, and yeasts that when working well, they modulate our immune system, help balance our brain...
Today I'm super excited to be interviewing Doctor and Professor Miguel Ángel Martínez, one of the coordinators of the PREDIMED study.
He's taken time out of his busy schedule to tell us about the healthy benefits of olive oil.
Olive oil has been used for 6,000 years in the Mediterranean area where there are lower cases of cardiovascular diseases compared to Western areas and other parts of the world.
Make sure that you eat olive oil amongst a healthy diet.
Eat olive oil with lots of vegetables, fish, and legumes.

Menopause is a progression and starts with “perimenopause”. Perimenopause can start in your mid to late 30s, or early 40s.
Hormones begin to change their normal patterns.
Progesterone levels fall as women aren’t ovulating every month. This means you don’t make as much progesterone. So there’s more estrogen (or "oestrogen" if you're from the UK).
Estrogen stimulates growth. It stimulates growth of the uterine lining, of the breasts.
This can lead to flooding periods and painful breasts and weight gain.
“Menopause” is a day that marks a year after your last period.
Common perimenopausal symptoms include new anxiety, new insomnia and weight gain. Fatigue, changes in periods.
Anxiety and insomnia can be attributed to low progesterone.
Erratic estrogen levels are responsible for flooding periods.
Can you believe that the Fit and Fabulous podcast is over 6 months old? Part of me feels like I've been podcasting forever. The other part feels like it's only been 2 minutes.
The "reason" behind the podcast is to show you that what you do influences your health and wellness. We have it in our hands to lead a healthy and amazing life.
Many people think that it's "too difficult", or they'll "get to it another day".
I want to inspire you to start now!
I want to show you that what you do does affect your health. And that you can make changes that are EASY and FUN!
I'm all about "easy", especially when it comes to cooking for my 4 kids! (None of them like the same things. In fact, it feels like some of them don't like anything.)
Here are the things that I like to chat about.
