In this episode we’re joined by Jill Guthrie, a health coach in Savannah, GA. Deanna met Jill on Instagram, and after talking, she couldn’t wait to bring her on the podcast. A diagnosis of osteoporosis along with a love of running and nutrition is what set her on her health journey. She has also been eating a plant-based diet for the past three years.
When Jill started making her own health and nutrition a priority, she became so passionate that she would talk about it to anyone who would listen. That’s how she ended up at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). This program influenced Jill’s life in so many positive ways.
Jill has been running races since her mid 30’s, but she always had a desire to run the Boston Marathon. In 2008, this dream became a reality. Although she admits she did many things wrong, she learned a lot along the way. Jill doesn’t hold back from expanding on her love for running and nutrition and what it meant for her to conquer more marathons in the years ahead.
Our eating habits may (and even should) change with the ebb and flow in our lives. This adjustment requires the knowledge of what food does in our body. This also helps us choose what goes on our plate more wisely day-to-day.
Jill has been plant-based for years, and eventually her husband would join her eating this way. Transitioning to a plant-based diet has helped her husband lose weight that had fluctuated for years and to keep it off. He’s been able to reduce his diabetes medications too. From her own experiences and working with her clients, Jill knows what difference a healthy diet can make.
