How are the mind, body and gut connected? Does the word, “diet,” tie your stomach in knots? Is there more to eating healthy than just losing weight? Can it affect our mental well being, too? With Mental Health Awareness month now underway, discussing the connection between mental wellness and nutrition is not only fascinating, it can be life-changing.

When Jennifer McDaniel, a registered dietitian, business owner, speaker and author, launched her company, McDaniel Nutrition Therapy, she wanted to create a place where individuals could understand the relationship between food, their personality and how they approach life in general. For her clients, success is key. And what that looks like can vary as greatly as the people who come to her for weight loss, sports nutrition and corporate wellness. It also involves taking concrete, specific steps to make habits last, much like the path people take when working on mental-health conditions, where small successes are celebrated. Listen in as Executive Director Tom Duff, MSW, LCSW and Jennifer McDaniel digest the many ways nutrition impacts our overall physical and mental health, and how eating healthy can be transformational.
