          Dr. Travis Stork Advises ‘Substitution, Not Deprivation’ Is Key To Making Healthy Food Choices


          May 17, 2017

          Ashley says as hard as she tries to keep weight off, there is one person standing in her way: her Nanna, Ann.

          When Ann became sick, Ashely moved her grandmother in with her young family. Now Ashley, who had previously lost 70 lbs., claims Nanna’s home cooking is the reason she’s gaining weight again. She says her grandmother “loves” her – with food.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: In conflict and need resolution? Ann, who says she makes “delicious Southern comfort food”, says she can’t help it if her granddaughter loves her cooking, and she’s not to blame if Ashley is gaining weight.

          After reviewing the recipe for Nanna’s “famous” ‘tater salad – Dr. Travis Stork, host of the Emmy award-winning show The Doctors, and author of the New York Times bestselling book The Lose Your Belly Diet: Change Your Gut, Change Your Life, says when it comes to eating healthy, “substitution, not deprivation” is key. When he offers the pair some tips for making a few healthy substitutions in Nanna’s cooking, does she say she’s willing to make a change?
