Dr. Heather McKee's Evidence Based Insights

Episode 3: Dietitians eat doughnuts

In this episode I talk to Laura Clark, registered dietitian, sports nutritionist extraordinaire and founder of LEC nutrition. Over the years Laura has built her knowledge and expertise not only in nutrition and health, but also in sport and exercise nutrition and behaviour change counselling. Laura’s work is hugely varied – she could be working on anything from wellness seminars to weaning workshops, being in front of the camera to being in front of budding dietetic university students.

Laura talks about how nutrition impacts all of us in so many ways. Laura is interested in helping people find out what is best for their body and how we can use nutrition to maximise our performance both at work and in our daily lives.

In this episode you will learn:

  • How nutrition isn’t black and white, and why we shouldn’t be dogmatic about it
  • How flexibility in your diet is key
  • How to look at food as a project and break down your nutrition goals just like you would with your work goals

Key questions you could ask yourself about your habits based on this episode:

  • Are you ignoring your body signals? How can you listen to your body more?
  • How can you become more proactive about your food choices?
  • How does planning feature in your daily habits?

In a sea of nutritional clutter and fads Laura is breath of fresh air, helping us all learn how to eat it real. And I know you will thoroughly enjoy today’s episode with Laura.

What people are saying about The Habit Changer programme:

"You were put in my path for a reason. Over the course of our sessions a light bulb went off with me!!! That’s when it all changed for the better."
- Orla

"This programme is different from everything else you’ve ever done. It wasn’t just loads of advice. I liked learning and thinking about my goals – it wasn’t about someone else, it was about me specifically. We all know what we need to do, we need to exercise more and eat better but this was a different approach, it was empowering. Doing the programme was a light bulb moment for me, it became 100% obvious to me where I had failed in the past and what. I should do in the future. I feel so much more in control of my weight now but not only that I feel stronger, more relaxed and happier."
- Cathy

"It’s a different way of thinking a different perspective. All diets fail this isn’t a diet it’s different. It’s a lifestyle change it helps look at the behaviours behind why you eat rather than just solving the symptoms. It shows you if you take small but deliberate actions what the cumulative changes would be . I certainly feel positive I’m heading in the right direction. This isn’t a quick fix its looking at your motivation – changing your mindset and that helps change your behaviours."
- Colm
