Anyone else here easing back into movement/fitness and navigating that
postpartum life? This is my third kiddo, so I've certainly been in
this space before and at least knew what to expect. That said, each
process has been really different for me!T...
We all know a car can’t run on empty. It will literally stop, stall, and
stay put until someone somehow fills the tank back up with gas (or, in a
more modern example, someone plugs it back in!). If a car is just low on
gas, or low on a charge, it wil...

The most common question I get as a sports dietitian is "What should I
eat before I workout?!", or even just "Do I need to eat before working

1) you like! 2) is affordable for you and 3) meets *your* needs!
Processed food gets a bad rep, but honestly, it's a subjective term --
there's no one way that folx think about w...
Hi @AAlajoki ! Chiming in with some lived experience -- I have three
boys, my youngest is 4 mo and they were all born within 4 years (wasn't
the plan! hah, just, how it happened). Have you tried pelvic floor
physical therapy (PFPT)? I'm certainly not...
