Whitney English Tabaie is a former E! News producer who went from covering celebrities and red carpet events to becoming a registered dietitian nutritionist, a certified personal trainer and founder of Whitney E. RD. She is on a mission to halt the spread of misinformation in the health and fitness field, and she’s dedicated to examining the latest studies and using that information to inform her clients and followers how to make the healthiest choices they can. Seriously, she’ll even read hot new research while on vacation — and figure out how to present it in a way that’s easy to understand, even if you didn’t spend years earning your master’s in nutrition like she did.
Oh, and head’s up — before we finished up with Whit, we were already inviting her back because, boy, do we have questions! So stay tuned, because there’s more to come in a few weeks with our Part 2 ep.
In this information-packed episode, Whitney talks about her free 7-Day Predominantly Plant-Based Diet Plan (you can sign up here!), plus, she fielded our questions about the advantages of a predominantly plant-based diet, what exactly she means by that phrase, whether or not nightshades actually cause inflammation, and how soy might not be the nutritional bogeyman that some folks have made it out to be. In fact, she made a series of three YouTube videos about the science of soy that you’re probably going to want to watch.
