Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 315 with Addie Dulaney Majnaric, RDN


Welcome! and Thank you for listening. 


Today I am joined by Addie Dulaney Majnaric, RDN to discuss some nutrition pet peeves as well as some travel tips for eating healthy. 

One of the biggest things we can do for our family is to maximize health through nutrition.  While it is true, children can survive on adequate calories, proper growth, brain development, and immune function rely on nutrient dense foods.

Many people think sodium is not an issue for children, but they are at risk for hypertension and inflammation with excessive sodium intake.   A recent study published in JAMA sited that children get upwards of 2/3 of their calories from ultra processed foods.  These are foods high in sugar, salt and oil as well as stabilizers and preservatives that can be highly allergenic.  Nearly all soybean oil that is used in processed food comes from genetically modified soybeans.  Organic ingredients is exceedingly rare in take out or drive through foods.  This translates into high levels of glyphosates and other pesticide exposure. 

We will discuss this and much more in this episode.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast: Episode 313: Take Yourself of Autopilot

Welcome! and Thank you for listening! 

Are you on nutrition autopilot?  Do you skip breakfast or grab a smoothie then graze your way into lunch? Is your desk drawer at work filled with snacks that don't count in your nutrition log?  Have you planned dinner, or will you just grab something on the way home?  We are faced with thousands of decisions each day in addition to our food choices.  Unlike the Hadza hunter-gather tribe our nutrition can take a back burner in our daily activities, because there are so many choices.  However, those choices added to the thousand other choices often lead to quick last minute mindless choices.  Energy overload.  

Overweight and overwhelmed can make one fell the need to make drastic changes.  What follows today is a discussion on medical decision making when it comes to obesity.  Get all of the facts before making irreversible choices. 

Exercise is a must for health but perhaps not for the reasons you think.  

I hope you enjoy my discussion on bariatric surgery, plant based nutrition and exercise.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 312: Can You Exercise Yourself Skinny?

Welcome! snd Thank you for listening!

I am sure you have heard it takes so many minutes of exercising to burn off a donut? Some people say thy have a slow metabolism and cannot loose weight on any diet.  Some people say you need to eat to loose weight because you need to stoke your metabolism.  

According to Herman Pontzer, Phd and his new book Burn, this is not the case.  I have lived the exercise point.  Training for a marathon does not result necessarily in weight loss.  I have also seen people fast and loose considerable weight.  The bottom line is loosing weight is a negative energy balance and gaining is a positive energy balance.  But what about the quality of nutrients.  Is a donut equal to kale? 

I found Dr. Pontzer's book,

very supportive of a plant based diet.  Yes energy is energy, but for optimum health we need to find a way to achieve a balance in nutrients and fulfillment.   I hope you enjoy my discussion.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 311: Hurricane Free Food

Welcome! and Thank you for listening!.  Elsa is off the west coast of Florida, and I am reporting in as safe.  The threat of a hurricane adds some stress to daily life.  It also requires preparing for potential days without power.  It usually mean a few days inside watching the wind and the rain.  It can also mean comfort food or junk food.   We usually go through the alphabet in named storms in the summer here in Florida.  That can translate into a lot of comfort food.  Add in summer holidays and birthdays and you can sense the calories and cholesterol.  The days outside exercising also get cut so there is a big shift in energy use. 

How do we get around the slips that are "not usual" but all too common?

Are cravings us or our microbes?  Is an upset stomach an allergy or a microbe issue.  Is all fiber alike?  I will discuss a study from Nature Magazine this month that sheds some interesting and positive light on digestive issues associated with dietary changes. 

Have you ever heard of the saying "a chip on my shoulder"? It can be a powerful motivating source, but it can also be a limiter.  Does being told you can't spark change or defeat?  Do those things affect just changes we want to make or changes we need to make? 
I hope you enjoy my discussion.  As always thank you for listening.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 310: Trade Offs

Welcome! and Thank you for listening!. 

There seems to always be a trade off.  In medicine, we call it risk versus benefit.  In life, it often refers to immediate gratification versus delayed gratification.  In training, it can be flexibility versus strength, or speed versus endurance.  Nonetheless we have to make these decisions every day in one form or another.  

I believe my job as a physician is to educate people on the choices they have, and allow them to make the best decision for themselves.  In order to do that most effectively, it is necessary to have a relationship with someone to understand their goals and desires.  

Are you doomed to overeating or making less that optimal choices?  Do you feel your behavior is impulsive at times?  I think we all have those times to some degree. I will give you some ideas on how you might expand your training to include nutritional choice training as well.  

I will give you my menu planning walk through ideas as well as some ideas on talking with SAD diet eating folks.  Go on over to to sign up for our newsletter.  This month we will be giving plant based hurricane preparation tips and much more.  

Don't forget to get a copy of our cookbook for all of your favorite summertime recipes healthy plant based style!

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 309: Cherry Picking

Welcome! and Thank you for listening! I have not been cherry picking but I have been mango picking.  Florida mangos are the best as far as I am concerned.  But that is just my biased opinion based on a couple of really good local varieties.  

Before I had a local mango, I thought the little yellow honey mangos in the grocery store were good.  I have been to local mango tastings where there were over 40 varieties, and people would give their opinions as to which were best.  We all have our biases, and that is what I want to discuss today. 

It is quite popular these days of internet communication to debunk others opinion with data that is, well, cherry picked.  Most good research will discuss their findings and note that while it seems the case, more research is needed.  Nothing is as it seems.  Life is complicated, and there are many variables.  It is easy to get caught up in what we want to believe and what suits our beliefs.  It is difficult but necessary to listen to conflicting views.

Weight loss and optimum health is not as easy as some would like your to believe.  However, we all have some common grounds that I believe would make a lot of people a lot healthier.  I'll share those with you on this podcast. 

I also believe health is a personal decision.  My goals for my life are not necessarily yours.  Defining your goals will make it a lot easier to define what you need to do nutritionally and functionally to achieve them.  They are personal and need to be respected.  However, those goals are not wishes that may or may not come true.  You can have real input into your health journey.  I hope this episode helps you to define your goals more clearly, and sort through some of the cherry picked data out there.  

Thanks for listening.  Email me at with questions.  Go on over to for more information.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 308: Happy Healthy Father Day

Welcome! and Thank you for listening!  Happy Father's day!  

I hope all the fathers out there are getting a healthy hearty meal this father's day.  This episode will speak to healthy celebration foods and maintaining those big muscles by eating plants!.

Ketosis is associated with fat loss but also Dexa scan proven muscle loss.  Those muscles are important for metabolism.  As we age or decondition, we loose mitochondrial density in the muscles.  Put that together with loss of muscle, and it is a recipe for metabolic dysfunction.  

The two best things we can do to keep ourselves healthy is exercise and nutrition.  But all exercise and all nutrients are not created equal.  

We would love to help you reach optimal health and wellness.  Go on over to and see how you can become a member of our practice.  Healthcare is not about protocols and one size fits all.  It is an individual dynamic of communication, goal setting, and plan formulation.  Email me at with questions.

Jami Dulaney MD Plant Based Wellness Podcast Episode 307 with Ashland Dave

Welcome! and Thank you for listening.  Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Dave Klisz from the podcast: Running in the Center of the Universe.  Dave is an ultra runner and describes himself as an ordinary middle of the pack runner.  He is in the 50-55 age group, and is now experiencing friends that are having lifestyle diseases despite running.  Several of his running friends have had cardiovascular events and procedures despite being very good and lean runners.  They have been largely told that it is hereditary.  They are making running comebacks without changing much else.  Enjoy this conversation with Dave and I as we shed some light on what you can do to prevent and reverse heart disease.  It need not happen in the first place, and it can surely be prevented.
