#231 Checklist for a broken metabolism, breaking the cycle, and disordered eating in dietetics with Megan Kober, RD
This week on The Less Stressed Life Podcast, I am joined by Megan Kober, RD who shares her story of what she wanted to do in practice and how it has evolved over the years. She talks about her personal experience with disordered eating and the feelings that came with that starting in Nutrition school. She opens up about the cycle of cutting calories and working out like crazy, following all the "rules" she'd learned but heading towards a downward spiral.

I’m Megan, and I’m a registered dietitian and founder of Metabolism Makeover, a blog, a brand, and a nutrition coaching business that focuses solely on helping women fire up their metabolism as a means to drop fat instead of the traditional “reduced-calorie diet.” I’m a hater of calorie-tracking apps, a big fan of a strong and dirty vodka martini, and I know EXACTLY what it’s like to feel frustrated and broken over the lies we’ve been told by the diet industry.
