great information + reminders :) can't wait for your next 2 podcasts in this series

Gina says …

I LOVE your podcasts! Hooray! There is lots of good information here, including some I didn't already know, and I love how positive and healthy the advice given is. I'm a daily Whole Foods shopper and I'll be picking up some Alpha Lipoic Acid this afternoon - thanks for the reminder!

Amanda (Manduh) says …

Another informative podcast! I have never heard that cinnamon or turmeric are thermogenic. That means more whole grain toast with cinnamon on it and more curry for me lol. Looking forward to the next podcasts in this series!! Thanks again

Naomi says …

Interesting breakdown on all the weight loss "buzzwords" you see bandied about... thanks!

Michelle says …

I was directed through mom*mom blog spot to your site and I am so glad she led me to your site. I found this pod cast extremely helpful as I have tried every diet in the book, healthy and otherwise, and have finally resigned myself to figuring out how to lose weight the healthy and holistic way. Thanks for the advice. I will definitely frequent your site from now on!

Lisa Elliott says …

I often forget how important it is to stay hydrated and this has reminded me again that it is vital to my success. I will also be stopping by to pick up some Alpha Lipoic Acid this week. :-) I am so looking forward to the next in the series.

smmmashley says …

fabulous ideas again, simple reminders, we all need them as we fall off the wagon especially with the holidays, and the cold weather, when all you would like to do is hibernate! love yogurt, i think that is a main reaason i dont yo yo diet, that and the french women are not fat book!

Michelle C. says …

I just listened to the whole foods pod cast and loved the info! Thanks

Sara B. says …

I've always been on the lookout for the fiber content in foods! I was also encouraged to hear about the benefits of Dandelion Root...someone gave me some tea with it in it and this makes me want to drink it!

cathy B says …

I too was directed to your site by a link to ModMom. I am so glad. As a regular Wholefoods shopper, many come to me for advice onthe best organic and wholesome products and i direct them to your store. Having this podcast is such an added plus, as now i can direct them to listen and learn before making their shopping selections. All too often shoppers go to the market and do splurge shopping, having forgotten their lists at home. I love that in this podcst you focussed on the importance of hydration, along with maintaining a healthy digestive and metabolic system. So many times we try to lose weight and end up either sick or gaining it right back. instead, if we concentrate on feeding our bodies what they need to be healthy, weight will eventually get to where its supposed to be. You have done a great job in connecting the nutritional councel along with the revving up your metabolism advice. Up the water, add the turmeric( I use it daily along with curry on almost everything too), walk, and aff your soluable fiber. Once again Wholefoods, THANK YOU for a great job! Looking forward to all your podcasts.

taryn says …

I really enjoyed it. I didn't know about the supplements I can take to help me lose those extra 54 lbs such as cinnamon.

Tara says …

I thought this was an excellent podcast... excellent advice and information.

Mama Zen says …

I love it! An excuse to eat more cinnamon!

Really great information. I'm looking forward to listening to the other two.

Fiddledeedee says …

Oh, I needed this. Great information on digestion improvement. We've been using probiotics to aid, as well as fish oil.

Jess says …

Lots of (new-to-me) info in such a short amount of time. She has definately piqued my interest, and shared some encouraging tips for healthy weight loss. Thanks!

Britni says …

I got this website from modmom.blogspot.com and loved all of the information. I've recently started to lose weight and get back in shape and this really was helpful!

Britni says …

I recently purchased some probiotics, and they're amazing. They made me feel so much better and felt like food was just digesting through a lot smoother. I lost weight for the first time in a year. Thanks!

Shelly says …

I am such a big fan of Whole Foods (we are gluten-free!!) and am thrilled you have podcasts. I had no idea that you even had a blog! I liked this first one, the 'skinny on weight'. I've been trying to loose weight, unsuccessfully, and this gave me some good information to talk about with my Doc. Looking forward to listening to the rest as they come out! Shelly

Bonnie Day says …

I came here from modmom.blogspot.com and was pleasantly surprised at the useful information I listened to on your podcast and learned some new information regarding cinnamin and turmaric will have to start using these more often in my cooking Thank you

sal williams says …

Amazing, I have known about the benefits of tumeric forever and use it faithfully but I was not aware that cinnamon had thermogenic properties.The information on lipotrophics and weight loss was very interesting.Thank you for a great informational site. I will let all my friends know you are here. Whole Foods is just the best. Wonderful information!

sal williams says …

Reposting due to inaccurate email address...how do I do these things. Thanks agin for a very informative podcast. I benefitted greatly from the info on lipotropics especially.

Brittany says …

Great information here - loved having the reinforcement of products I already use! Thank you!

Lisa G. says …

This was a really informative podcast. I feel like a learned alot of great information about how my digestive system affects my weight loss.

Michelle says …

I learned so much from this podcast. I had no idea there were foods or other things (like the dandelion root) that were good for flushing fats. At least I am doing one thing right by getting enough sleep. Changing my food choices to develop a healthier lifestyle might be a bigger hurdle.

(Ooops! I forgot to leave the Mod Mom website link above instead of my own. Sorry!) I learned so much from this podcast.

Changing my food choices to develop a healthier lifestyle might be a bigger hurdle.

Bronwyn says …

I'm trying to lose weight (again) this year, and need all the help I can get. It's great to hear from experts, as I obviously need to relearn how to feed myself! I'm going to look into probiotics supplements. Thanks for the blog!

Pure and Sensible says …

Thank you! This info was very helpful. The ONLY negative I have is that the intro was a bit long at 50 seconds.

Referred here from http://modmom.blogspot.com/. Thank you! This info was very helpful. The ONLY negative I have is that the intro was a bit long at 50 seconds.

Maggie Smith says …

I really enjoyed this podcast because it not only told me what to eat to help lose weight but also WHY it helps you lose weight. I already knew that fiber and probiotics were important but what I didn't know is that they help aid in digestion which is crucial for weight loss. This is wonderful to have these podcasts available to consumers. I love your stores and now that I have found your podcasts, I really appreciate you a whole lot more!

Piseco says …

Interesting information... I liked the information on things I already have / enjoy - like cinnamon and turmeric. Thanks!

Tania Bugnet says …

Thank you for explaining the need for the "good fats" versus the bad ones. And with so much in the news about probiotics I was grateful you touched on that as well. Very useful!

Lynn says …

Thanks for the advice on on using cinnamon! I found your site through Modmon.blogspot.com!

Allison says …

I didn't know much about the good fats and probiotics before listening to this. I hope this will help me launch my weight loss! Thanks for the info! I found your podcasts from modmom.blogspot.com

Angela Palmer says …

Thanks for the excellent information. I've been working hard, but always could use a boost.

Katherine Frazier says …

You provided some great information for weight loss and what to do to help weight loss. The fiber information was especially interesting.

missy says …

Mod mom sent me. I recently began shopping at whole foods more often. Great information to go along with a great store!

jim jones says …
