Everyone Loves Poke! + Our Very First Keto Pregnancy and Keto Baby! - Season 1 Episode 6

Hawaii is the poke capital of the world and no one knows the best spots like us locals do! Poke is the perfect keto friendly food whether it's spicy ahi, cold ginger ahi, fried garlic ahi, or king crab. In today's episode, we feature Off The Hook poke market in Manoa and Tamura's Fine Wine and Liquors in Kaimuki - 2 ultra popular poke spots. With gestational diabetes affecting over 10% of pregnancies globally every year, the question of "can you do keto safely during pregnancy" is a timely question. **Disclaimer: Always consult your OBGYN first. This is not medical advice. This is one patient's story and testimonial.** Nohea is a patient of Dr. Jodi's who suffered from chronic constipation, gut health issues, and celiac disease her whole life. Being told to "eat more vegetables" did not work and she was eventually found to have colon polyps at the young age of 29. Starting a ketogenic diet not only improved her celiac disease, it also decreased the inflammation and pain she was experiencing from old sports injuries and increased her energy. Nohea is our first full term keto pregnancy and her beautiful daughter Emma Rose is our very first keto baby who is exceeding every developmental milestone. We discuss the unfortunate pitfalls of infant formula which so many of us moms rely/relied on, the importance of healthy fats for your baby's brain development, morning sickness, breastmilk, breastfeeding, eczema, and so much more. The ketogenic diet is not just for weight loss or new year's resolutions. It's hugely beneficial for so much more when done under medical supervision by a trained and accredited medical professional.

You Are What You Eat And What That Plant or Animal Ate + Yet Another Keto Restaurant! Season 1 Ep 5

Many of us don't understand where our food comes from. Do you know what animals are fed or what chemical fertilizers and pesticides are used on your fruits and vegetables? Do you truly understand the conditions under which cows and pigs are raised and how these things affect your diet, your health, and your weight (gain or loss)? Animal feed, hormones, antibiotics, and the large array of chemicals used on farms cause inflammation in the human body and destroy your healthy gut bacteria. In this episode, Dr. Jodi takes you to Mountain View Farm in Waianae, HI where you meet David Wong. His farming practices are so much better and it all starts with the soil. His pork product is extremely clean and his cancer story is what contributed to his education and journey. You will be amazed at the tidbits your learn in this episode. Afterward, Dr. Jodi and her buddy/local personality Champ Kaneshiro take you on a food adventure to yet another keto friendly restaurant: Feast by Jon Matsubara located in Manoa, HI. Join them and see what keto approved foods are available. You'll be licking your chops and getting lots of ideas as you contemplate your health and your New Year's Resolutions for 2022!!
