Podcast Episode 000: Welcome – All About Sound Bites & Melissa

Apr 3, 2015

podcast selfieWelcome to the Sound Bites podcast! I’m your host Melissa Joy Dobbins. In this podcast I delve into the science, psychology and strategies behind good food and nutrition by interviewing food and nutrition experts such as researchers, authors, academics, dietitians, and more!


You may also listen on iTunes or Stitcher.

I’m doing this podcast because there are people and topics that I find interesting such as new research, new books, and new perspectives that don’t get enough air time in the media or that are sensationalized and oversimplified in the media.

Some of my favorite topics and areas of expertise are diabetes, weight management, family nutrition, protein, agriculture, and food safety and technology
I’ve been a registered dietitian nutritionist for more than 20 years. I have spent my career helping people enjoy their food with health in mind. I’m known as ‘The Guilt-Free RD’ – “because food shouldn’t make you feel bad!” I want you to be informed and unafraid – that means getting credible information and making your own well-informed health decisions based on facts, not FEAR.

For more information about me, visit my “about” page and also check out my “guilt-free philosophy” post.
If you’re hungry for realistic options that empower you to make healthier choices while bringing back the enjoyment of food, and thirsty for credible, meaningful, guilt-free nutrition insight, then I hope you’ll enjoy this podcast and share it with others – please subscribe, rate and review it!

One more thing: In each episode I will share disclosures that are pertinent to the episode topic including those of my guests and myself. If an episode is sponsored, that will be mentioned as well.
