RD Real Talk - Registered Dietitians Keeping it Real


Mar 22, 2019

Heather and Robyn are back to co-host this episode of RD Real Talk, talking about stress, and Allostatic Load (or overload). We're both in a certain phase of life where "overwhelm" comes easily, and we have to consistently reassess how much our buckets can hold.

Allostatic Load: "Stressed or stressed out: What is the difference?" 

Robyn wrote a great blog post about Allostatic load, so if you want to dive in further, read on

Things we discuss: 

  • how running can be part of joyful movement and a balanced relationship with health <> exercise 
  • why I (Heather) didn't go after that half-marathon PR 
  • real life, imperfect human moments
  • how to tell when your bucket might be WAY TOO full
