Welcome to the Sound Bites podcast! I’m your host Melissa Joy Dobbins. In this podcast I delve into the science, psychology and strategies behind good food and nutrition by interviewing food and nutrition experts such as researchers, authors, academics, dietitians, and more!
I’m doing this podcast to share important information about new research, new books, and new perspectives that don’t get enough air time in the media (or are sensationalized and oversimplified in the media).
Some of my favorite topics and areas of expertise are diabetes, weight management, family nutrition, protein, agriculture, and food safety and technology.
I’ve been a registered dietitian nutritionist for more than 20 years, and I have spent my entire career helping people enjoy their food with health in mind. I’m known as ‘The Guilt-Free RD’ – “because food shouldn’t make you feel bad!” I want you to be informed and unafraid – that means getting credible information and making your own well-informed nutrition and health decisions based on facts, not FEAR.
