Lauren Harris-Pincus is a registered dietitian nutritionist and the owner of Nutrition Starring YOU. She’s a nutrition communications specialist and also has a private practice where she specializes in weight loss. Lauren grew up as an overweight child and draws on that experience, in addition to her degree in nutrition and years of counseling clients on weight management strategies, in her daily work as a nutrition communicator and educator. She develops recipes that not only taste great, but are calorie-controlled and pack a lot of nutritional power, and has a particular talent for creating breakfast recipes that are protein-rich because she knows that helps control hunger and support weight management efforts.  

In this episode, Lauren helps Melissa with her 30 Day Protein Challenge with a focus on breakfast solutions. They also discuss various aspects of weight management including exercise, getting on the scale and having a healthy mindset.
