Carbs (Harm Reduction)

Carbs, especially refined carbs contain anti-nutrients like gluten that are difficult to digest and have little nutritional value. When eating carbs, remember 2 things: 1) Whole wheat/sprouted grain does make a small beneficial difference. 2) Pasta tends to have more nutrition than bread or rice. I recommend finding creative ways to replace wheat-based carbs for example veggie noodles, black bean pasta, or Konjac rice or noodles.

I spent the first part of my life playing piano and composing music. I graduated from UCLA with a degree in music composition and cognitive science. Then I became a User Interface Engineer for four years. I moved home to Raleigh, NC to be closer to my family and began to freelance. On the side, I created a company called Elemental Nutrition & Wellness that uses interactive resource calculators to give people the tools they need to lose weight and boost nutrition. Now I have my own practice as a holistic nutritionist. I help people meet their weight loss goals by fostering self-motivation. You can reach me at
