👱🏻‍♀️ We get this question all the time…so here it is…

Artificial sweeteners do NOT increase desire for sweet foods 🪦

The latest review of the body of scientific literature found no evidence that artificial sweeteners increase the desire for or the consumption of sweet foods (Wilk et. al 2022). Swipe right to see @drmarkhyman ‘s likely response to this paper 🤣

This myth has been around for decades & is the last line of defense for the church of anti-artificial everything 🤣

These folks claim:

Artificial sweeteners make you fat ❌

They don’t. In fact when substituted in place of sugar sweetened beverages or even in place of water they often cause weight loss (PMIDs: 32216045, 26708700, 24862170)

Then they will claim that artificial sweeteners increase your insulin & mess up your blood glucose❌

They don’t (PMID: 29760482)

Then they will say it will mess up your gut microbiome❌

That is highly unlikely (PMID: 33171964)

When all those arguments fail then comes the: “but they will increase cravings.”

If that was true, why do we see people not gain weight & typically lose weight when they use artificial sweeteners? 🤔

It’s not supported by any direct evidence & there is evidence that also directly refuted this claim

The claim is dead. Bury it. It’s over. Done. 🪦

The answer is...


If there is one change to make, it would be to completely eliminate seed oils from your diet. 🙅‍♂️

This is a difficult task for many because they are everywhere within the modern western diet. As a result, we have seen a massive increase in metabolic dysfunction. 👎

Based on how it is processed at the mitochondrial level, linoleic acid (seed oils) prompts fat cells to grow.

Everyone knows that fat cells growing is a bad thing for our waistlines and beach bodies, but at a metabolic level, it quickly becomes very dangerous for our health.

When fat cells of the visceral adipose tissue get too big, they begin releasing excess free fatty acids into the blood, which sends the signal to the rest of the body to become pathologically insulin resistant.

Metabolic dysfunction ensues, eventually leading to diabetes with all of its complications and a host of other illnesses.

How do we fix this metabolic catastrophe? We start by removing the thing causing the original problem—excess linoleic acid.

You'll want to avoid all vegetable/seed oils such as corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, cottonseed, canola, peanut, grapeseed, etc. (check all food labels 👀)

Fruit oils like olive, avocado, and coconut oil are okay, but you should be aware that 79% of the olive & avocado brands you find at the grocery store cut their products with harmful seed oils.

When in doubt, use animal fats like butter, ghee, and tallow! 🧈

Our hunter-gatherer ancestors didn't eat seed oils, they prized animal fats! 💪


As we continue to grow our relationship with younger athletes in the community, it’s more important than ever to educate along the way!

Sometimes it’s the obvious that slips through the cracks and goes unsaid - or the question that “should be” asked but isn’t for fear of looking stupid/being embarrassed.

REMEMBER, the only stupid question is the one not asked…but we continue to do our best in making sure that foundations are covered!

Mount Pleasant & Charleston, SC nutritionist or dietitian l What's the difference? Dietitians and Nutritionists both help people find the best diets and foods to meet their unique needs, they have different qualifications!


Metabolic adaptation is a series of responses our body undergoes as a survival mechanism in response to a calorie deficit (which is required for weight loss). ... In both cases one's metabolism slows and hormonal alterations favor a decreased energy output to balance the lower amount of calories consumed.

When a person is in a calorie deficit, the body will do what it needs to try to keep weight steady. As “energy in” decreases the body adapts to keep us alive and functioning by decreasing the “energy out.” Thus, calorie deficit weight loss eventually slows down or even plateaus for a number reasons:

• BMR will decrease because a person weighs less
• TEF decreases because a person is eating less
• NEAT typically decreases as a person eats less food so that the body can conserve energy
• EAT decreases as fewer calories are burned because a person weighs less

Human beings are not designed to be in a calorie deficit 24/7 - especially when it comes to optimizing performance. One must strategically alternate caloric deficit phases and implement nutritional periodization strategies to decrease metabolic adaptation. Maintenance is just as important, if not more crucial than being in a deficit to provide the proper nutrition and fueling for daily activities, maintaining lean mass, and peak performance. A person earns the right to diet, only after being at a healthy energy balance for an extended period of time.

Fitness trackers accurately measure heart rate but not calories burned

🤔 Using a device to tell you how many calories you burn during exercise?!

While accurate for measuring heart rate, might want to think again about accuracy for calories burned…especially if you include those calories as part of your daily allotment/intake!

Fitness trackers accurately measure heart rate but not calories burned A Stanford inquiry into the accuracy of seven wristband activity monitors showed that six out of seven devices measured heart rate within 5 percent. None, however, measured energy expenditure well.

👱🏻‍♀️ What is Metabolic Flexibility and Why Does it Matter?!

is a matter of .
Translation: What type of food energy and stored energy your body is using for fuel!

Many explain it as the way a hybrid car switches between electric energy for burning clean and efficiently (like fat in the body) v. gasoline energy for burning fast and for higher performance (like glucose/sugar in the body).

It is the main player behind health, weight loss, metabolism and longevity.

🧐 Can Metabolic Flexibility and Substrate Utilization be Measured?
✅ The simple answer is YES - it’s what we do on a daily basis with our clients when leveraging nutrition for health/wellness, fitness, and performance goals!

👉🏻 Part of the information we gather when we using our from @korrmedical is Respiratory Exchange Ratio ().
**RER has a range between .70 (Primarily Fat Burning) - 1.00 (Primarily Carb/Sugar Burning).

🤨 How Can Metabolic Flexibility Be Improved?
✅ Macronutrient Manipulation
- Lower carb days decrease the insulin spike, thus improving insulin sensitivity, and deplete your body's carb stores, enhancing mitochondrial function whereas Higher carb days ensure your body's ability to use carbs for energy and keep hormones in balance.
✅ Workout
- Working out improves mitochondrial function, which makes you more efficient at burning energy. Working out with low glycogen/carb storage specifically, trains your mitochondria to burn more fat.
✅ Time restricted eating
- Time restricted eating or intermittent fasting depletes your body's carb stores which enhances mitochondrial function to burn more fat and increase insulin sensitivity.

“Knowing” is half the battle - then implementing a proper strategy leads to results based upon YOUR unique physiology, metabolism, and specific goals! It’s how WE Put The Personal Back Into Training!!
