Are you forever going on diets? Trying all the latest fads? What is really right for you?
In this week’s Women Living Well After 50 podcast, my guest Wendy Hodge, from Wendy’s Way to Health discusses why we need to forget the fad diets and learn to eat healthier after 50.
Don’t go on another diet – change your regular diet instead and make healthy eating doable
During the conversation we discussed:
- We all have good intentions of making healthier food choices but life gets in the way and it all just becomes too hard so we reach for the fast and convenient. Ways to overcome reaching for fast and convenient instead of healthier options.
- During COVID we saw fresh produce at a premium price and low stock. Ways to ensure we are getting the right nutrients. Frozen veggies vs Fresh
- What does ‘mindful’ eating and the 80/20 rule exactly mean?
- What is Intermittent Fasting?
- Why having a recipe library is so helpful
- Wendy’s program

Wendy is the founder of Wendy’s Way to Health and the brand-new Online healthy recipe club. She’s a Precision Nutrition certified coach, helping women quit dieting and develop a healthier everyday lifestyle instead.
Wendy believes that healthy eating is still widely misunderstood as something that requires sacrificing your favourite foods and dedicating yourself to a life of eating boring meals made with bland tasting ingredients.
And she wants you to know that while that may have been the case in the past, today that’s just not true! You don’t need to count calories, cut out entire food groups or deprive yourself of your favourite treats.
She’s been developing healthier versions of her favourite snacks and treats over the last 10 years, and you’ll find the latest versions on the Wendy’s Way blog. https://wendyswaytohealth.com/recipes/
