Expert Interview - Lose the Quarantine 15
2020 has been a lot of things... tough, sad, stressful, weird, and challenging are things to come to mind. Definitely not anything that we've ever expected.
With all of the stress and uncertainty that has come with this year, many of us have packed on the Quarantine 15 (or more)! If this is you, don't fret - you're NOT alone. There are safe, healthy ways to get these extra pounds off so you can jump start your healthy journey before 2021 even arrives.
We had the opportunity to interview Rhya Pachin, one of the experts in functional nutrition here in Charlotte. You may remember her from earlier in the year when she talked with us about the gut microbiome and the importance of using food and nutrition to heal the body.
Today, she is going to talk to us more about that pesky "Quarantine 15" and how we can make a few simple lifestyle changes to get that off, and keep it off.
Hi Rhya! Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us again! Today, we are going to be talking about loosing the Quarantine 15! Can you first tell us about this "Quarantine 15" and why so many people packed on extra pounds during this time?
Sounds like quarantine was the perfect storm for added weight. Can you tell us a little bit about what the first step would be for loosing this weight?
Oh yum! Fresh fruits and veggies! That sounds like the perfect situation for a smoothie. Do you have a good smoothie recipe that you would like to share with our readers?
I love smoothies because they are a quick, easy way to get in extra veggies and "hide" concentrated nutrition that might otherwise be cumbersome to get into your daily diet. Berry-Avocado smoothie is one of my favorites:
Blend and enjoy!
Thanks for that recipe! It sounds delicious and I can't wait to try it! A lot of modern women struggle with their metabolisms. What can we do to help boost our metabolism?
So many women are affected by autoimmune diseases, can add in an extra element to weight loss. Are there any additional things these women need to consider when trying to get off the extra quarantine weight?

You know I've got to ask this! What are your favorite Roses and Azalea products that you've personally tried?
