Live Happy, Eat Dirty Podcast with Kate Harrison (including The 5:2 Diet)

Live Happy, Eat Dirty is a podcast full of quick and dirty health and diet ideas for real people, hosted by me – Kate Harrison. Fed up with feeling guilty because you can’t be 100% perfect all the time? Live happy and eat dirty instead! In this practical and positive podcast, discover why cheese is our kind of superfood, what your gut can tell you about how to live a good life, and how part-time diets are the secret to staying in great shape for life. Hear guilty-free ideas and down to earth interviews by happily imperfect health author Kate Harrison, who loves to have her cake and eat it. In Live Happy, Eat Dirty, we say down with eating clean or feeling bad because you never want to try a triathlon. Instead, live the dirty life – enjoyable, laid back but balanced. We talk about food, diet in its broadest sense, positive mental health, gut science, intermittent fasting, 5:2 and strategies for a long and happy life. If you loathe detoxes and clean eating, but love evidence-based tips and eating well – you’re in the right place. Because you can be slim without giving up cheese, bread OR wine. You can be fit without ever trying a triathlon. And you can enjoy your life without having to be a saint. Episodes 1-20 were originally part of The 5:2 Diet Podcast and can still be enjoyed as a great introduction to the fasting lifestyle. www.the5-2dietbook.com

In today’s episode Helen and Kate talk dirty about carbohydrates – why they’re an essential part of our diet, and why cutting them out is so difficult to maintain. We also reveal our own top of the pops when it comes to starchy carbs… and talk about exciting new research on 5:2/Dirty Diet-style fasting and how it may benefit our health.

 

Featuring Kate Harrison and  dietitian Helen Phadnis - also known as NomNomNerd! Carbs are fuel for the body - and the fibre they contain fuels our friendly gut bacteria too. But they've been demonised on many diets, so Helen explains their role in nutrition. Kate also tells how low-carb was only ever a short-term fad for her. 

Plus we reveal the simple cooking method that helps carbs become even tastier - and more beneficial to your microbiome.

Kate also talks through the results of new research showing the potential health benefits of intermittent fasting, carried out by the University of Surrey. You can read more about that here or download the full (technical but interesting) PDF.
