✨ Listen to our episode with Brittany HERE✨
Brittany Wehrle is a Registered Dietitian and Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics based in Dallas, TX. She specializes in helping active women and female athletes with amenorrhea - missing menstrual cycles - fuel for optimal health, balance their hormones and transform their relationship with food and body. Brittany loves empowering women by educating on the pitfalls of diet culture, societal body pressures, and health misinformation.
In this episode, Brittany discusses her passion for helping high performers and active women become more balanced with food and nutrition, the connection between hormone dysregulation and clean eating/overexercising, debunking diet culture so that you don’t have that ‘noise’ when you’re making choices, and navigating the importance of rest in a society that holds strong value to productivity. Bridgett and Brittany also discuss how societal beauty standards have been the perfect grounds for glamorizing diet and exercise trends, being more mindful of our social media usage and feed curations, and the importance of listening to our bodies cues and figuring out what nourishing foods and exercises make our bodies feel best.
"What's going to serve you so much better and keep you out of that hamster wheel mentality is learning how to reconnect to your body and figuring out what makes you feel good. And then when you see that newest diet trend come up, you can see it for what it is, which is literally noise or marketing. "

There is no one “correct” way to move through life, and blindly racing towards the next milestone won’t give you the feeling you are expecting it to.
"A lot of us underestimate how much rest our bodies need, or even how much rest our minds need. Starting to play with what that rest might look like is sometimes scary with a society that values productivity so much. But you can’t be your most productive if you’re not rested anyways, no matter how good you think you are at running off three coffees a day or five hours of sleep. It’s not truly your best."
