Eat Yourself Skinny with Dietitian Cassie

Welcome! My guest today is a dietician whom I met at a conference last August. I’ve become a fan of Cassie Bjork and her “Eating to be Skinny” approach to health and nutrition. I’m excited to have her on the show today!

Cassie describes her work as being a “dietician detective” in which she looks for evidence and symptoms in her clients, and then puts the puzzle pieces together. “We help you narrow down the suspects included in your personal crime scene that keep you from being skinny and living a healthy life.”

Cassie shares the following about her life, her work, and her nutritional recommendations:

  • Her own sugar addiction brought her to the lowest and unhealthiest point in her life, so she got off the blood sugar roller coaster and made some changes.
  • America’s biggest nutritional problem is SUGAR ADDICTION! Forget the low-fat, low-calorie approach to trying to lose weight!
  • Cassie identifies some key areas that are usually the missing puzzle pieces in nutrition: keeping inflammation down, managing stress, supporting thyroid function, gut health, hormonal balance, proper sleep, avoiding artificial sweeteners and processed foods, and being careful with alcohol consumption.
  • In making nutrition changes, gut health is the top priority! Cassie shares her “three-prong approach” about what we SHOULD be doing, including the supplements we should all take every day.
  • Cassie’s formula for nutrition is “PFC Balance.” Her template can be customized for anyone, but use protein, fat, and carbs in balance with eating every 3 hours to “stay ahead of the hunger.” She also shares sample meal plans that she uses every day!
  • Hormone balance is crucial! Cassie explains the relationship between insulin and glucagon in the body’s fat burning/fat storing processes.
  • Fad diets are not usually the answer! Many women try intermittent fasting and ketogenic diets and then come to Cassie for help.

“When we deprive our bodies of food, nutrients, and healthy fats, then our metabolism slows down to conserve energy. That’s why low-fat and low-calorie DOES NOT WORK! Nutrition is not about low-fat and low-calorie, but about refueling with whole foods that the body needs and is designed to run on.”
