Understanding our bodies and caring for them is critical to a long and happy STEM life. Often, when people are striving to be their very best as STEM professionals, they are faced with the importance of self-care. On this episode, our hosts speak with nutritionist, Shelley Rael, about the different self-care strategies that are critical for a healthy and wealthy life.
Contrary to her title, Shelley Rael, MS RDN doesn’t believe in diets. A registered dietitian nutritionist since 1999, she helps people change their mindset about food, eliminating rules and judgment while supporting a lifestyle that gives you sustainable energy. Rather than gimmicks, supplements, or fad diets, Shelley works with individuals to create Customized Nutrition Blueprints, or action plans, for sustainable all-day physical and mental energy. Having worked in wellness, health promotion and disease prevention/risk reduction her entire career, she knows there is no one diet that works for everyone and helps people choose a way of eating that works for them year-round, not just before a big event, vacation, season or change of the calendar. Fads, trends, and quick fixes will come and go, but eating will always be necessary.
