Anti-Inflammatory Diet – Day 29

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!

Winding down with 2 days left, Betsy and David begin to discuss some preliminary observations regarding the overall physical effects of the anti-inflammatory diet trial. Plus – how do you assess progress with weight changes, when day-to-day changes can seem so variable? Betsy comments on this.
