In this conversation with Registered Dietitian Adrien Paczosa we dive into the neuro-biochemistry behind food and its connection to aspects of mental health. Listen in for why carbs play such an important role and the lesser-known surprise benefits of potassium-rich foods!
Adrien is the Chief Clinical Officer and Founder of the tele-nutrition company Nourish and host of the podcast Fearless Practitioners. In the show, we have a nice chat about the value of these two areas in which she practices too! Listen in to learn more.
Here is the link to her handout on food and mood!
More about Adrien:
Adrien Paczosa (RD, LD, CDERD-S) has more than 20 years of experience working in the dietetic field with a focus on eating disorders, neurochemistry nutrition, and business development. In 2007, Paczosa founded and opened her first private practice in Austin, Texas called iLiveWell Nutrition. Paczosa combined evidence-based nutrition science with a compassionate approach to counseling patients to deliver health outcomes and improve patients’ day-to-day lives.
She has personally counseled hundreds of patients ranging from severe eating disorder cases to diabetics to high-performance athletes. A few years later, iLiveWell Nutrition has become Nourish — a nationwide, virtual-first nutrition group focused on addressing America’s healthcare crisis through greater access to nutrition care. Paczosa now serves as the Chief Clinical Officer of Nourish and what started out as just an idea now serves thousands of patients, nearly all of whom use the service via telehealth and are completely covered by their health insurance.
