The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Amy Culp Performance Nutrition RD, CSSD, LD says “I always tell people, the weight will take care of itself when you focus on your healthy habits, you focus on your fitness. So many people focus too much on the weight and on the scale,” she is the President of the Collegiate & Professional Sports Dietetics Association, Director of Sports Performance Nutrition for the Texas Longhorns Athletic Department, Assistant AD for Performance Nutrition at University of Texas, and Yancy’s wife!

Today Yancy and Jarod talk with Amy about the field of nutrition and how you can get ahead of your game to live a healthier lifestyle. In this episode, you’ll learn:

Different people start at different places
A life fueled by fitness can start in the kitchen, we can choose why and when we eat healthily
Food is Fuel, picking the right food for the right time 
Don’t try changing too much at one time
What should parents do to help their kids have a healthy relationship with food?
