Whitney English Tabaie is a registered dietitian nutritionist, certified personal trainer, founder of Whitney E. RD … and we had so much fun talking to in our first interview (catch it here in case you missed it) that we decided to have her back on! We delve into a whole slew of subjects for our second information-packed chat with the former E! News reporter who traded in the red carpet for scientific studies — and never looked back.
Whitney talks about what it takes to become a registered dietitian (RD), and explains exactly what they can (and cannot) say about treating disease. We also ask her about what’s the best time for a pre- or post-workout snack (and what they should be based on your activity), whether or not one needs supplements, the buzz on BCAAs — and we even chat about Whitney’s pregnancy cravings, because at the time we spoke, she was just a few weeks away from giving birth. Between then and now, she’s brought a beautiful little boy into the world — so, congrats, Whitney!
