Orla qualified as a Dietitian from Kings College London. She initially obtained an honours degree in Physiology from Trinity College, allowing her to apply her detailed knowledge of the human body to the nutritional management of conditions and diseases. Since then Orla upgraded her BA in Physiology to an MA in Physiology and went on to achieve a Masters in Clinical Nutrition at Roehampton University, London.
She is one of my ‘go to’ people when it comes to the latest research on topics and I love her ability to argues the pros and cons for nearly any dietary approach. If you struggle with weight or fat loss, are confused about metabolism and how to actually boost it or most importantly, you suffer from PCOS then this is a must listen.
The first half of today’s episode is about weight loss and nutritional or dietary misconceptions and the second half of this podcast is a PCOS deep dive
Here are some of the things we talked about in today’s show.
· Genetics and hunger
· Optimal protein vs adequate program with a weight loss goal
· Losing muscle as we age (and how to avoid it) and why it slows down fat burning
· The biggest weight loss struggles she sees
· PCOS deep dive – whose at risk, the solutions and what the research is telling us.
· And more.
