Bridging the Gap Between Fitness & Nutrition Niemtzow is a Board Certified Health Counselor, who has worked with natural health practitioners such as Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Deepak Chopra and Oprah’s Dr. Oz. She focused on a “mindful approach to eating,” and how important it is to take three times a day to relax and recharge while eating meals. For a view on the comfort and joy of eating, Katie Lee, celebrity chef and best-selling cookbook author, was there to remind us all to enjoy eating seasonally and in a healthy way. She offered several easy meal ideas to get through the busier days, including some vegetarian options.

Is all this mumbo-jumbo about eating organic legit or just another trend? These questions and more were answered this past Thursday at SoulCycle Bridgehampton’s Wellness + Nutrition Panel, featuring five knowledgeable panelists and moderated by Ingrid C. Skjong. The variety of panelists contributed greatly to the success of the event. Two Registered Dietitians were present: Keri Glassman, author of The O2 Diet, and Tanya Zuckerbrot, author of The F-Factor Diet. Glassman, a lifelong athlete, was an All-American lacrosse player at Tufts University and has completed the New York City Marathon and several triathlons. She had a coinciding view on nutrition, focusing on food as consistent fuel and encouraging healthy eating over traditional dieting. She also spoke about the children she treats, and how parents often neglect the child’s natural “fullness factor” by encouraging them to always finish their plates. Zuckerbrot, on the other hand, dealt with how nutrition affects disease and the mental and emotional attachments people have to food. In addition to treating clients with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and HIV, as well as pregnant women, she works with children and teens struggling with weight and body image. Another panelist, Elisa Niemtzow, is the founder of Living Empanoui, a wellness and lifestyle firm encouraging living in the style of the French.
