Welcome!

Hey there!

I’m Miche, and I’m a recovering dieter.

After years of yo-yo dieting & weight gain, I figured out how to stop the cycle, lose the fat, and gain muscle!

So I’m here to share advice on how to eat without rules or restriction and reach your goal body, using scientific research from nutrition & psychology.

…and share recipes, too!

 

Weight loss isn’t about eating less.

It’s about eating differently.

Losing weight, and especially maintaining it, is about what you eat, and how you go about eating it.

I know, this completely runs against conventional wisdom. But hear me out.

Conventional wisdom doesn’t consider the actual scientific research on how weight loss works.

I do: I’m a PhD!

I got my PhD in 2021, and I run studies on nutrition & memory–and apply science to my daily life!

There is a lot of great research out there on how to lose weight, and be happier & healthier… but most people don’t know about it, because it’s hard to access & understand.

So I break it down by writing posts & filming videos so you can apply scientific findings to your life!

Study: The Most Anti-cancer Veggie + How to Eat More of it | Highest Sulforaphane Cruciferous Vegetables

You probably already know that cruciferous veggies like broccoli, kale, and cabbage are especially healthy, but did you know that not all crucifers are created equal? Some of them are better at fighting cancer (and have more antioxidants) than others!

In today’s video I go over a study comparing the cytotoxic (aka, cancer fighting) activity, sulforaphane levels (aka, a super cancer-fighting compound), and antioxidant levels between different types of cruciferous vegetables.
