Anti-Inflammatory Diet – Day 15

Join Chicago-area pediatric dietitian Betsy Hjelmgren and her husband, David, as they venture on their own nutrition journey this August. Their vlog contains all the laughs, fun banter and tips you would expect from a great couple attempting a restrictive diet rollercoaster. Tune in as Betsy learns to truly appreciate the difficulties clients and families face when embarking on a new diet with nothing but a few handouts and some encouragement from others!

It’s Thursday! First day of the 3rd week! David and Betsy both hopped on the scale for some data, and share their updated results.

Betsy hints at her thoughts on the theory of diminishing returns, but emphatically states she is in it to win it, when pushed by David.

Also, Betsy replies to a couple of the comments submitted yesterday on FB. Thank you to our watchers! Please keep them coming!
