Mathea Ford: [00:00:26] Hi there! It’s Mathea. Welcome back to the Nutrition Experts Podcast. The podcast featuring nutrition experts who are leading the way using food starts today right now with our next guest. It’s great to have Christina Bieg on the show today. Christina, welcome to Nutrition Experts. I’m excited to have you on the show and share your expertise with my tribe.
Christina Bieg: [00:00:48] Thank you I’m so excited to be here with you today.
Mathea Ford: [00:00:51] So Christina, I just want to start with asking you to tell my listeners a little more about you and what you do.
Christina Bieg: [00:00:58] Sure. So, first and foremost I am a single mom of four amazing children ages 5 to 14. I am a very curious, happy, very health conscious person who is really excited about nutrition in my career path. I have been a professor of Wellness and Health for about 15 years and just recently I have retired from that profession to do the coaching and speaking they’ve been doing on the side part time I’m doing that full time. So, as of right now we have transitioned over into being a holistic health and personal development coach. I specialize in positive psychology, behavior change, life fulfillment and Integrative Nutrition.
Mathea Ford: [00:01:46] What made you interested in this topic of Integrative Nutrition and kind of developing nutrition topics?
Christina Bieg: [00:01:55] I’ve always been interested in health and what makes people kind of work and the tendency is in their behavior. So, knowing how important nutrition is to our entire life existence and how we move, feel it just kind of came hand in hand with something that of course just constantly comes up especially when somebody is trying to improve in an area of their lives. Nutrition is usually at the forefront of what’s going on in their background I guess. Its something that I’ve always asked on coaching. So, nutrition came up and me myself I have a good connection with food. I love it and I love their holistic approach to Integrative Nutrition.
Mathea Ford: [00:02:39] I always say to people you can out eat any exercise program that you do so nutrition is definitely important.
Christina Bieg: [00:02:48] It’s somewhat sounds similar but you can’t exercise out a bad diet too right? So, I’ll exercise a bad diet it is something that they say so.
Mathea Ford: [00:02:58] I wanted to talk to you about how relationships and connections affect our health. So, can you talk a little bit about how you develop some interest in the relationship-health connection?
Christina Bieg: [00:03:11] Sure. So this is something that I’ve recently been extremely passionate about. I’ve always loved people and very curious by nature and wanted to really understand what makes people or why they behave, act think and make the choices that they do. So my passion from the topic of connection kind of came second to my yearning to understand how people work in general. And it started at a very young age and I started my teaching career. It started off in early childhood education. And we had to take very extensive anecdotal records about why children were behaving, acting emotionally, physically the way that they were doing. So it kind of started off there I guess a kind of all came together when I really started to try to understand humans and what we’re wired for. We’re really wired for that connection with other people. They say that bees and ants and termites are the only other creatures on earth like humans that we have a tendency to create as a whole. So, how that kind of worked in human behavior and nutrition kind of all came together as some of some studies that I came across that I just really loved.
Mathea Ford: [00:04:27] So can you talk a little bit more about the studies that you found?
Christina Bieg: [00:04:31] So, you’ll hear me get really excited about this. So, Joshua Rosenthal I guess the owner and creator of the Integrative Nutrition Institute. He brought up the study once and it was about 1940s, 1950s where this entire town when the entire United States was kind of going into this crisis over the fact that heart disease was our number one problem as far as human health concerns go and they were looking into this study because what they notice is one town it was in Pennsylvania they weren’t having any issues. Nobody was having any heart disease in this town. And so of course they linked to the lot to diet and behaviors in the choices that were making them. So they went out to this town to find out what was actually happening within this town. They thought “well, let’s find out what they’re eating they have to be eating something different.”
Christina Bieg: [00:05:26] And they went into this town and they found actually the complete opposite that this town was not eating healthy. In fact when the conductors were going in and they found that they were eating like I don’t know I think it was meatballs fried in like Crisco lard or something in there. How can these people that are eating these awful foods not have heart disease because we know that it’s linked to what we eat? And what they found out at the end of the study is that this town it was just very connected they called it so that the people got together. They just did a lot of projects together. They attended church together. They had this sense of community and belonging and they inspired each other to do different things. So, they left the town just puzzled by this because this is when they just really started to do lot on studying the different fats in our diet and what causes heart disease. I guess the longevity of the study is then in you know coming into this is the 40s or 50s. So, still monitoring this town when they start to notice in the 1980s, 1990s and in the 2000s as in this town heart disease started to become more prevalent. And they’re like “what’s going on you know? They had the strong sense of community. We thought you know it wasn’t nutrition based.
Christina Bieg: [00:06:45] What’s going on?” So they went back and they started to find out that the communities within the town started to break apart because students who go off to college and they were coming back and just how their society was kind of going more towards Internet based connections and more feeling of loneliness those type of things were happening. They found that the heart disease rate was going up just as much. So, I think this study for me was really exciting because there’s something there. Right? So, if we can actually make good connections and have healthy connections with the people around us and we eat an amazing diet that there’s going to be something dynamite there. Do you know what I mean? It’s completely intriguing to me about human connection that how strong and what we don’t understand about what connection does for our health in general.
Mathea Ford: [00:07:34] You’re right! The world has changed as far as being more online based, being more remote, people are working more from home and doing things remotely so I can see that might be significant as far as if there was any protection. Do you really think it’s more based on the personal connection like being with somebody or around them or eating dinner together or is there value to those connected relationships that may happen online?
Christina Bieg: [00:08:09] I think it’s an overall value of the relationships that you do have. So what those relationships are doing for you. Do I have close friends that I contact socially online? And do we inspire and help each other to grow and be better? And are we having fun together and are we connecting? Do you know what I mean? Really connecting and feeling like there’s a sense of belonging within that community. And I think that’s the key. More so than actually is you know sitting with. I can not deny that. I believe that sit down dinners are the most amazing things in the entire world and that when we come together we celebrate life and food in general that there is also an extreme needing in that as well for balls. So, those are my thoughts.
Mathea Ford: [00:08:56] We have a big deal in our house that we are going to have dinner together. So, are supper. Dinner is a funny word but supper. So, my father lives with us and I go to my office all day and my husband is in his office and the kids go to school or whatever. And so in the evening we all come together and we don’t have our friends and we talk about what has your day been like. And is that the kind of connection even if it’s online or offline, you know just even giving people that opportunity to vent a little bit about their day?
Christina Bieg: [00:09:29] Yeah. And I think it’s just just in general just being there for other people or even creating that sense of tradition or a habit like we’re sitting down we eat dinner this is this is what we do. There is a sense of purpose in that like a background type of sense of purpose or intention that we sit and we talk and we do this and we know we lead our lives with these types of intentions that we notice the health of those individuals have dramatically increased.
Mathea Ford: [00:09:57] What do you think are some ways that people can you know manage their eating and their health with regards to relationships?
Christina Bieg: [00:10:06] I think sometimes we don’t actually eat with intention. When I say intention or purpose is really understanding who we are and kind of who you want to be in the world. So, I really think that some ways that people can manage their eating is really to eat with intention. Asking yourselves you know clarity into these things that I’m choosing. Do they help me achieve what I what I say I want to achieve or be who I want to be? So I think that’s a really big way of managing and starting to create healthy habits as far as eating and their health goes is really eating with that intention in showing up as you plan to show up. Take plans and actions and put them in action. So, that has a lot to do with it.
Mathea Ford: [00:10:53] That was a great answer but I’m thinking more granular. Can you talk a little bit more about goal setting for improving your life so in order to get that clarity you have to have some goals you have to start somewhere. Can you talk a little bit about that?
Christina Bieg: [00:11:08] I guess when I look at nutrition I think about ways of eating sitting down and finding out where somebody wants to go is kind of why I gave maybe such a general. But one of the ways and I mean when I say that they plan with intention to manage your eating as it is to really know what they want to eat right? And Who who they want to be.
Mathea Ford: [00:11:33] Can you talk about maybe some specific goals that some people might fare and what type of outcomes they could expect?
Christina Bieg: [00:11:42] Yes! So, my favorite one is to add one, minus one is my favorite nutritional goal setting technique is somebody’s looking to do something and they’re not quite sure on how to kind of go about it. I tell them to add something to it. So, pick something that they know they may want to try or maybe it’s just part of routine. Everyday I’m going to drink five glasses of water so I’m going to add more water to my diet. They take it just small. Can we add five cups? Yes, that’s something somebody could do. Maybe minus one. So, instead of drinking coffee you know six cups of coffee I’m going to minus one cup of coffee and drink water instead. So something very simple because I think when people like “Alright. So I’m going to start eating no processed foods are not going to have any sugar. I’m not going have any caffeine. I’m not going to have any alcohol in my diet. That all stops on the first of the month” and I think that’s when we get into problems because we don’t actually give ourselves enough compassion when it comes to being human and the habits that we form. So, I love the add one minus one strategy and goal setting as far as nutrition and health. My exercise clients they’ll say “well, I want to go to the gym and I want to start doing this” and I’ll say “Okay, well. All I want to do is add three pushups a night. Just three push ups a night.” They say “I said Yeah just at three pushups a night” and if you can do three a night, that’s all you’re adding you know and you’ll be fine. So and that’s just small goals or small milestones because then they see that achievement happening and it also becomes a little bit more attainable.
Mathea Ford: [00:13:18] You gave an example of doing three pushups. How does that lead to the gym?
Christina Bieg: [00:13:23] People are very fearful. Right? In general, we live in this fearful state. “I don’t know what I’m doing, I don’t know how to do it. And if I don’t add at all or do it all at once I’m not successful and I’m going to fail.” And so again to this almost mindset if you will. So, I think by achieving those small little steps even though they seem so small, all three push ups aren’t really helping me a night. Well, it did if you couldn’t do one. And if now you do three well instead of doing three a lot of the stories that I hear “well, instead of doing three pushups Christina I decide to do 20.” “Awesome! You did 20 pushups. That’s amazing! What else can we add into that?” “Well, I’d like to start adding running and then I’d like to start maybe food prepping.” “Okay. So, let’s see what that looks like and so we kind of go through a process.” So I think it’s those little baby steps that people really take for granted that really kind of push us into forming new habits because remember when it comes to habits you know I think it was William James and he said “Our virtues are habits as much as they are vices” and our nervous system, we actually grow in a way that we exercise each day and just like we fold a piece of paper around kind of tearing this quote apart but as much as we like as we fold a piece of paper, those folds forever afterwards are the same identical folds that we kind of do. And in that quote, I does love it because until we start making those little things a habit it’s it’s kind of hard to set goals and people kind of come off those little things like those decisions that they make like today I’m going to eat healthy and if they don’t they just decide they fail then they’re not going to try again. So, we give up easy I think in that and start taking action.
Mathea Ford: [00:15:07] I think it’s a perfect example of small things adding up. So, we all are so used to instant gratification and it’s hard to realize that you exercise today and you do every you know you run for 20 minutes tomorrow you’re going to be completely exhausted and not to exercise again whereas you may not feel like that’s making a change but that’s a perfect example of how over time you can see that and especially if they track it like “I did three pushups today, I did four pushups today, I did this” so it will at the end those 60 days or however long it is is going to happen anyway. So, if you do those small steps instead of jumping off the cliff of “I want to go to the gym everyday for an hour.” You can make a lot of change in that time.
Christina Bieg: [00:15:59] The same thing goes on I always say with our nutrition as well you know when I kind of switched over to a plant based diet it wasn’t like I could just today I’m just never going to eat meat again. It was “Okay. How am I going to replace this? Okay, I’m going to add this say maybe a salad or a roasted vegetables to my prep meals three times a week” and all of sudden that became easier because it became more obtainable. Right? In the smaller doses.
Mathea Ford: [00:16:29] What sort of choices do you think people can improve in their regular food selections? You know, thinking about nutrition and small steps what are some better choices and what are some ways that you can choose more nutritious foods?
Christina Bieg: [00:16:45] I always start with drinking more water. I call it living water but springwater you know. Just implementing more water in your everyday diets is a big choice for me to kind of give advice on because I think filtering out maybe with the small things that they are eating well that water is going to help detox quicker. That’s one of the biggest ones I’d love to add in. For those that are already doing so I always push raw living foods. So, what’s natural, what grows is what’s good for you. So, how they can add something like that in each day? It’s as easy to grab an apple off the counter as it is a pack of I don’t know let people get a pack of gummy bears at the store or a package of M&Ms I guess. So, it’s just more of an intentful choice.
Mathea Ford: [00:17:39] How do you work to making that part of your life and not something that you’re going to negotiate out?
Christina Bieg: [00:17:46] I never say to people “Listen, I have four kids and I raised them all by myself. And if I can do it you can do it” because sometimes I like “Aly, you know this stuff” you know so I always get into that so I try not to bring of that. But at the same time, I really want to say “listen, if I can do this. Believe me you can do this.” I think it has has everything to do with when I started really planning my day like when I say with a purpose or intentions. Taking a few minutes in the morning and saying okay how do I want to show up in the world? Who do I want to be? Today’s going to be a busy day. We have this and this and this. How did I prepare for that? So, I think a lot of times of failure to plan when it comes so you know tonight we have to run around we have soccer to make this this and this. That’s when I know that I have to be on my best so if I know that’s coming up, a lot of times I will have lots of food. I always have these little bags, I have a cooler in my car that I actually put food in and plan ahead of time. And a lot of people say “Why do I have to? I don’t like planning. So much that process gives me anxiety.” I think that’s where the real success lies in. So, knowing what you intently want to do. Do you want to stop at McDonald’s or do you want to you know actually feel your body is something good on that day and not feel at the end of the day like you’ve done something that you’ve regretted. Do you know what I’m saying as far as a busy lifestyle goes?
Mathea Ford: [00:19:13] Yeah. Even just starting your day with something positive. You know affirmations or you know with intention this is going to be a great day. So, you talk a little bit about the benefits of being more positive in your life?
Christina Bieg: [00:19:26] Yes. So, being positive for me. You know I have a certification in Positive Psychology and I actually sought out positive psychology probably 15 years ago but just wasn’t really the in thing. It wasn’t actually happening there you know was clinical psychology here. But our brains actually are you know choose to be driven into the negative right. So, we do that in survival mode or fear kicks in. And I think really understanding yourself and how you work in trying to make being positive a little bit more a part of your everyday on most rituals will say “we are all we eat, we are what we think about all day.” And in being positive in my eyes there’s just a different feeling that you have all day when you’re in a blah mood or when you actually start in a positive manner. We actually play Pandora Positive Vibe music first thing in the morning and you know when my 14 year old daughter she says “Well, mom the days that we actually play music I know this what I feel like I’m in a better mood” I was like “Isn’t it amazing you know there’s this amazing connects?” Yeah, so we continue to do that and it kind of resonates well with everybody around us.
Mathea Ford: [00:20:45] For a long time people said start the day with gratitude and it took me a long time to think I know I’m grateful for a ton of things but to actually enunciate those small things as being grateful, I’m grateful for the food on my table, I’m grateful for the sun and sky, I’m grateful for a beautiful day. Those seem like simple little things but what if you don’t necessarily know where to start with being positive. What would you suggest?
Christina Bieg: [00:21:12] I suggest people understand what fun is and I suggest going to find things in what you’re interested in and having fun again. We lose that connection as we grow older and really ashamed of belonging in those teenagers of what that fun mean and of course that changes. So, I say I always start to find fun things in our lives. If the gratitude thing isn’t working cause that to me that’s the simple step to take is what are we grateful for and we’re starting each day that way. It’s finding new things that you may be grateful for in creating those opportunities for you to find that positivity in your life again would be my next step for sure most people.
Mathea Ford: [00:21:54] So, when you’re going through and you’re coming up with goals and working on just having a better attitude in general, what are some ways that you would know if nutrition is affecting your life?
Christina Bieg: [00:22:09] So I think this is a case of really starting to understand who you are. We really lose touch with that sense of ourselves sometimes you know even in controlled like “no, you can’t get up to get a drink.” You’re thirsty and you want to drink. So, we learn that we’re not thirsty and there could be something else or if you’re really hungry it’s actually you’re thirsty. And we learn that these parts of our body and the mechanics of how it works. We can hold that back a little bit. So, it’s something that you almost have to relearn about yourself I think. And I think the best way to do that is really to get quiet and intently listen to it to yourself and your needs again. If it’s nutrition, to me I simply just feel it. And that’s because I’ve come to a point where maybe as you get older again you start to realize your body and how it works. If your body is constantly getting sick. People who eat well, you’ll notice that they’re not really getting sick because they’ve taken care of the internal environment in order to build up enough that when external factors kind of come into play. It’s a little bit harder and it’s more sustainable to actually not get sick. So, I think that people simply feel it in relationships. Those things start to happen and falter too when we are negative outlook. So, really taking a step back and focusing on the whole asking yourself some kind of questions for clarity I guess you know? What am I feeling and when am I feeling this way? And what was happening when those things occurred? You know I don’t at any moment take journaling for granted and I think it’s really helpful because I can take a look back and say and connect the dots almost you know what I’m saying? Like if it’s nutrition, if it’s the day, it’s what’s going on? And why was it this way?
Mathea Ford: [00:24:08] Well, I think you’re right if you don’t feel healthy or your doctor is saying you know you’re not healthy or something along those lines there’s more than just nutrition. It can always be you can always improve with nutrition but it’s also a lot of times more than that like you were talking about with relationships and being positive and how that works together. So…
Christina Bieg: [00:24:33] When we look at the human body even you know doctors are like “Oh! This specialist also did this.” And we’re whole being so we can’t just look at this one little part and say “aha! That’s it!” We’ll just focus on fixing the nutrition part and everything else will just fall into place. It’s really all the whole human body and how it’s working and that would include relationships in your career and your joy and your positivity. You know nutrition and fitness kind of just comes into play as a whole being.
Mathea Ford: [00:25:06] So, thinking about my listener’s, there you know dietitians, nutritionists, doctors, nurses, people that are interested in nutrition topics. Thinking about how they can use what we’re talking about today in like their daily practice. What are some ways that you would suggest that they can implement some of these things we’ve been talking about into their daily practice?
Christina Bieg: [00:25:30] I think coming in just in just honestly talking to their their patients, their clients in a holistic manner. Each one of us has everything we need to fix our own problems. As far as internal thoughts, ideas we all have what we need. And a lot of times it’s taking a step back and really listening to the individual and kind of asking them the right questions to help them in the process of they’re going through in order to reach their own goals.
Mathea Ford: [00:26:01] So do you have any examples of questions that you might ask situations?
Christina Bieg: [00:26:06] I love the question and I ask this to my clients and I said you know “what would your day be like if you were surrounded by amazing people that made you feel connected and who you belong to?” And they paint this picture the scenario of what that life would be like. “Tell me about your health in this situation? What do you think would be different about your health?” And they paint this picture. So, the personal was actually visualizes and paints this picture for you and it almost starts to generate ideas for them. “Oh! Well, I could start doing this.” “Okay. So, if you added something else to your diet. Right? If you add something good to your diet. What would that look like?” “Oh I’d probably feel more energized.” Okay. All right and then you know build from there. So, I think really coming up with concrete questions of having them visualize where you want to take them in the process. I mean I think it’s something we really, a lot of doctors and a lot of people ask questions about their demographics. Right? “How are you feeling? Or what’s wrong?” You know those type of things and instead of really kind of building that process for them to really start thinking about who they are and where they want to be and focus on that.
Mathea Ford: [00:27:19] I used to travel and design kitchens for room service. And when I would do that I would go and talk to all the key players and say “How do you envision this when it’s working?” And that was always very valuable because just like you described it sometimes it’s little small changes that will get you where you are. You think it’s a big change to get to a more positive environment or to a healthier eating and yet when you think about what that actually means to you, it really is a series of small choices and steps that can get you there probably faster than you thought. And also just easier when you stop kind of making it a nebulous thing and you really start to look at it concrete. And there’s always change you can do but yeah that’s awesome answer.
Christina Bieg: [00:28:11] And we really need to boost up our own self compassion when it comes to trying to make changes you know in being who we want to be. You know, sometimes we just lack that in ourselves sometimes we’re our own worst enemies when it comes to you know changing and making those small changes to be better.
Mathea Ford: [00:28:32] So what do you see as the future for working with relationships and positivity and health together in the health care? How do you see it affecting health care and healthcare practitioners?
Christina Bieg: [00:28:46] I love that health coaching is becoming a big deal right now. To me it’s the missing step between when the patient leaves and is having a problem or is having an issue or believes that they know what the next step is and actually taking action and they think that doctors are starting to really recognize that our health care system as well as even in preventative care. This accountability person or this person is going to help these people, the patients do what they say they’re going to do is that next key. Because sometimes I think a lot of times we make these decisions but we don’t actually take action then to have that extra person once we leave the doctors. I thought we talked about that and you were going to do that. Yeah, life got in the way and I just didn’t do it. The big to do about health coaches right now is really exciting because we as people like I said that connection part, we want to inspire other other people, we want inspire something bigger and create things bigger outside our house or outside ourselves. And then you know I think that that’s the direction our health care is really going in a preventative teaching, educate, instruct and then also in this inspiring way. So, right now to me the health care is really exciting in my aspect of what I see.
Mathea Ford: [00:30:08] Yeah that’s interesting because a lot of times like you’ll come up with road blocks or it’ll be you’ll have issues but just knowing you have somewhere may someone there that you can talk to or someone that has done this you know five or six times before maybe can help you understand like you’re like “I’m always busy. I’m always running the kids around” and just having someone to say “Okay. Well, let’s think through that and how what would best work to fix this way.” These are some other things I’ve seen people do and you stop feeling like it’s just you out there trying to do it and you start to realize that it’s you know you can be helped with other people.
Christina Bieg: [00:30:50] Right! And then that brings us back to that connection. That’s so important for our health because right then and there you have some sense of belonging that you’re just not alone in this world, you’re not just going online and researching what you could do and everybody else’s issues and what they say is happening but you’ve actually formed some type of support group or preventative care or it’s just exciting to me that connection part that we make that with other people we just become that much better in what it is that we’re doing all together.
Mathea Ford: [00:31:23] And there’s things related to that that we don’t necessarily want to discuss in publics or with even people near us right away like if you decided you wanted to lose weight and you were going to make some positive choices you may not necessarily feel like throwing that out to the world because you’re not confident. But if you had somebody there as a health coach or somebody working with you to say you know they’re not going to you know remind you that you failed or that this is your hundredth time trying to do it but they’re there to help you. And then as you start to see success people will make comments. But that’s an excellent point.
Christina Bieg: [00:32:01] One of my very good friends. His name is Tommy Brans. He said “you know a health coach or an aide. The role of a coach is to get you to do the things you wouldn’t have done had they not have been there and to me how many times would I have probably done something that I wanted to do but I just didn’t do it because I found other things to do to occupy my time you know and then you know been content or upset that I didn’t do it.” So that’s exciting. Right?
Mathea Ford: [00:32:31] Yeah. Perfect! So, Christina, I always try to ask and have you throw out what is your favorite food because I think it’s just good for people to think of different types of foods to eat. So what’s your favorite food?
Christina Bieg: [00:32:46] My favorite foods have to be so probably be some type of pasta dish with sauce. I would have to say something that’s very comforting for me but more on a Mediterranean type style which is not very heavy but really good olive oils and really playing out the herbs and secondly, probably some roasted vegetables are my favorite seasoned right could be my favorite dishes but I’m really into the different types of pasta now that they’re creating. They can create vegetable pastas and things like that would have to be my favorite.
Mathea Ford: [00:33:24] Of those, I love pasta too and I love the fact that we have these little inventions that we can now make the Zoodles and the carrot noodles. You can even buy those frozen already.
Christina Bieg: [00:33:36] That’s getting easier right? As people are being health conscious which is exciting. It just makes me happy. Think I would be able to make those choices.
Mathea Ford: [00:33:46] Well, Christina thank you so much for being on the podcast today. It was a pleasure to have you on the show. I know my listeners have learned a lot about how relationships and positivity affect your health. So if listeners want to connect with you what’s the best way to do that?
Christina Bieg: [00:34:02] Right now the best way to reach out to me is through social media. I know I’m on Instagram a lot trying to promote coaching and just inspirational thoughts but my website is wellnessleadershiptraining.com and they can always send an e-mail to me. But DMing me would probably be the best way to get in touch with me.
