EP 91 – How to eat for your body’s needs with Risa Groux


Risa Groux, CN is a Functional Nutritionist and Certified Autoimmune Coach in private practice in Newport Beach, California. She works with a wide array of clients from professional athletes, adults, and kids to the Biggest Loser from season four. Risa works with issues like diabetes, autoimmune disease, cancer, digestion, thyroid, and hormone imbalances, to name a few. Risa firmly believes that the body can heal itself with whole foods we obtain from the earth and sees living proof of that in her office each day. She looks at root causes using functional nutrition guidelines, blood and stool tests, and knows that weight loss is a side effect of wellness.

Her new book, FOODFRAME: Diet is a Four-Letter Word [Archway Publishing | January 7, 2022], is a comprehensive guide to using functional nutrition guidelines to help readers identify the root causes of various health issues and then eat according to their health status and begin the healing process.

If you’ve found yourself struggling with keeping a positive mindset lately, you are not alone.  According to renowned brain health Dr. Daniel Amen, all of us are being traumatized in some way. The human brain is wired to remember traumatic experiences, and in some people, this biological reality may lead to PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder.

I have learned that while you can’t control what happens in life, you can control how you react and for us, that means reaching into our medicine cabinet.  Not the one you may be thinking of, exactly.  I’m referring to your kitchen – your pantry and your refrigerator – because they can hold the answer to your overall well-being.  The benefits of a nutrient-rich approach to eating are enormous and the beautiful part is, they’re delicious, too.  I’ll dive into the 6 core categories of foods to fill your plate, and how they can contribute to the whole, beautiful being that is you. When you take care of yourself, you take care of everyone around you.

For more in-depth information on optimizing metabolism, feeding gut health, keeping inflammation in check, and optimizing brain health, check out my book “Eat Like You Give a Fork: The Real Dish on Eating to Thrive,” with 8 core strategies to help you thrive.
