Episode 42: How to Stay Healthy During the Holidays With Katherine Tallmadge

I'm excited to introduce today’s featured guest, Katherine Tallmadge. Katherine is a licensed and registered dietician. She founded Personalized Nutrition in 1984, which designs nutrition, weight loss and wellness programs for individuals, corporations, and restaurants.

She’s also the author of Diet Simple and an award-winning journalist, regularly contributing to The Washington Post, US News and World Report, Politico, and others.  You may have also seen her on TV as she’s been featured on CNN, many of the major network news programs, PBS, and The Daily Show.

Given Katherine’s unique professional qualifications — she has a B.S in Dietetics and Nutrition, an M.A. degree in Behavioral Sciences, and a second M.A. degree in Journalism and Public Affairs — it’s not surprising that The Washington Post and Harper’s Bazaar have named her the "Best Nutritionist".

Her appearance on the show today couldn’t be more timely. The holidays are here and in addition to friends, family, and fun, it can also mean more stress and more food. Katherine is going to share some tips to help us maintain our sanity and ensure that we still fit into our jeans at the end of the year.
