No holds-barred answers to the questions that keep every modern woman wondering why her weight is high, her libido is low, and her mind is scattered. While many only feel comfortable asking these types of questions of their best friend, they really want expert advice. That’s where we come in!
As a registered dietitian and a health industry expert, we are Dear Abby meets Sex and the City meets Dr. Oz. Based on our 25 years of combined experience in the health field, we are able to cover the multitude of topics that are constantly top of mind. We cover everything from food and nutrition to dietand weight loss as well as healthy habits for the kitchen, bedroom, boardroom and even the bathroom… nothing is off limits!
The combination of our expertise, our frankness on health topics, and the press we’ve received makes us “go-to” gurus on health. Our phones relentlessly ring, our inboxes are constantly full, and even strangers share personal stories and start conversations with us. When someone finds out what we do for a living, the questions come fast and furious and we’re constantly being asked for advice.
Despite working out, taking vitamins, visiting doctors and therapists, and eating organic, with the abundance of information out there, it’s hard to know the answers to everyday health questions. All of the contradictory information is confusing at best, and could be dangerous at worst. That’s where we come in… as a registered dietitian and a health industry expert, the two of us seek to weed through the heresy and report the truth.
