Podcast Episode 115: Is Your Diet ‘Good Enough’? – Monica Reinagel

Mar 6, 2019

The Nutrition Diva: Monica Reinagel

Too many people fail in the pursuit of a perfect diet. I’m here to promote the “good enough” diet. One that helps keep you healthy but also allows you to enjoy your life. It’s not your worst day or your best day but your TYPICAL day that determines your outcome.”

Monica Reinagel, MS, LDNMonica Reinagel, MS, LD/N, CNS, is a board-certified, licensed nutritionist and professionally trained chef. Her “sane and scientific” approach and “foodie-friendly” advice is regularly featured on in the media. Monica is the author of six books, including Nutrition Diva’s Secrets for a Healthy DietThe Inflammation-Free Diet Plan, and How to Win at Losing and creator of the weekly Nutrition Diva podcast, one of iTunes’ most highly ranked health and fitness podcasts since its debut in 2008.

You don’t have to eat a perfect diet in order to be healthy. Sometimes, you may choose to eat something not because it’s good for you but because you love it. Or because someone made it for you. Or because it’s the least of the available evils.”

The Nutrition GPA™ and 30-Day Nutrition Upgrade™

The Nutrition GPA™ concept and quiz was developed as a self-help tool for those wanting to monitor and improve their eating habits and nutrition status. It was recently featured by the New York Times as one of four “Best Food-Tracking Apps,” and is also the basis for Monica’s 30-Day Nutrition Upgrade™ group challenge.

Monica’s next 30-Day Nutrition Upgrade starts March 10, 2019 and is a fun (and sustainable!) way to improve your nutrition and eating habits. The program uses the Nutrition GPA app that Monica developed — and which was recently named by the New York Times as one of 4 Best Food Tracking apps (although it doesn’t actually “track” your food).

You’ll get a lot more benefit from a small positive change that you can sustain than you will from some 3-day cleanse or 30 day detox.”
