Advancing Your Health with Erin Smandych

Read more

Food and diet are multibillion-dollar industries. Both are confusing and complicated ––to say the least––, especially when we are continually being bombarded with messages of what we should and shouldn't eat.

Today, we have an expert in the area of culinary nutrition and advanced female metabolism with certifications in both specialties.

She helps people achieve their health goals by getting them off the diet roller coaster and then helping them focus on food, eating, and nutrition.

She is also the executive chef, founder, and creator of all the amazing recipes for a new café ––that I'm in love with–– called Masterlab, which focuses on performance food.

We're venturing into the world of food and nutrition! I want to welcome Erin Smandych into The Inner Circle.

Let's dig in!


  • 3:50 - We start with Erin's powerful message about the capability of food, her background, her biggest passions, and the importance of considering the social and emotional components of food that take place in our health.

  • 7:45 - We address the complicated topic of carbs, what they are, the sources, their importance, the fear around it, the impact they have on our bodies, biofeedback, and how to balance them.

  • 15:19 - Time to discuss Keto Diets, where this comes from, what it is, what it is ketosis, how it works, the impact, the benefits, and for whom it is.

  • 21:48 - Moving into Intermittent Fasting, the misconceptions, and intensity of it, what it really is, its impact, its benefits, how it affects hormones, and the implications.

  • 29:40 - Stress is one of the biggest obstacles that everyone suffers; we ought to know how bad it is for us, the effects, how it can impact our body and metabolism, how to balance it, and the power of walking and slowing down.

  • 37:21 - Gluten is one topic full of misinformation and misunderstandings; Erin explains what it really is, why it causes so many problems to people.

  • 42:51 - We tackle a relevant topic: Is there a relationship between packed goods and our health problems, and how do we listen to our biofeedback and balance it.

  • 44:30 - We wrap up the conversation by congratulating Erin on the opening of Masterlab, the fantastic recipes, and the philosophy behind everything.


  • "I'm also really passionate about cutting through a lot of the misinformation out there."
  • "This very special time to connect over food."
  • "Find a balance that works for your body."
  • "It's important to get to know your own body so you can actually be your own expert."
  • "It should always come back to what feels best for your body."
  • "If we are under extreme stress, our metabolism constraints itself."
  • "It's about learning your own body and not arbitrarily cutting something out because you heard it could be poison."
  • "What is the quality of the food you're eating."
  • "I love being able to combine holistic nutrition principles, and the way our food fuels us can be medicinal, healing, performance-enhancing with delicious recipes."

Erin Smandych, Culinary Nutrition Expert, Talks Breaking Diet Culture through Mindset and Easy Nutrition Tips

Read more

This week on the podcast we welcome Culinary Nutrition Expert, Erin Smandych, to the show.  Erin spent years on a roller coaster of restrictive eating, cleanses, and dieting. Instead of another meal plan or more willpower, she realized she needed a major shift in her belief system. Through proper nutrition and a major lifestyle change -- she was able to transform a lifetime of poor sleep, anxiety, and her relationship with food and her body. Now she helps other driven women ditch the diet mentality and food stress through nutrition and mindset coaching so they can look and feel their best -- without the struggle.

On this episode, we discuss Erin’s personal journey from a job in corporate finance to her current work as a culinary nutrition expert, we discuss ditching diet culture, her easy and accessible cooking and nutrition tips, and we also touch on the dark side of the wellness industry. We hope you enjoy this episode!

Trusting your Instincts with Food with Erin Smandych

Read more

Today we talk about a subject that many of us love, but may also have some struggles with - food. Eating to fuel and nourish our bodies can have a profound effect on both our inner and outer wellness, but many of us have limiting beliefs surrounding eating and struggled for years with yo-yo dieting and the latest health fads. Our guest today is here to make it simple and yes, even fun. Erin Smandych is a self described “nutrition nerd”. She blends her background as a Culinary Nutrition Expert and Coach, to mentor many clients across Canada and Europe. Erin empowers us today by openly sharing her own journey with food, how she helps others shift their mindset surrounding health and wellness, and gives us the top three changes we can take on to have a dramatic effect on our well being.

What You’ll Hear in This Episode:

  • Despite all her credentials, Erin has had her own struggles with her relationship with food. She is open and honest about her past feelings of anxiety and guilt with food to show others that they aren’t alone or broken in this area.
  • How Erin got into holistic nutrition, became a Culinary Nutrition Expert and then finally shifted to equate food truly as fuel for our bodies.
  • The limiting beliefs Erin sees most when working with her clients, and the ways they show up to block us from reaching our highest potential.
  • What trusting yourself and tuning into your instincts really means when it comes to eating.
  • How to handle cravings, and when to know if your body is needing something or just playing tricks on you!
  • The psychological impact that happens when we stress, and ways we can break the chronic pattern of fight or flight. The less we worry about the 5lbs we need to lose before vacation, the better chance we have of acting losing it!
  • Why Erin strongly dislikes restrictive diets, harsh detoxes, and the promise of a quick fix.  
  • Yes, guys really do drop weight faster than women! Find out why.
  • Erin’s top three tips to developing a healthy relationship with food: mindfulness practice, mindset work, keep it simple.


  • “It was getting harder and harder to start the diet again every Monday.”
  • “Our fuel actually does change how we feel.”
  • “Fruits and vegetables were my gateway drugs.”
  • “It’s almost how you begin the journey, is understanding the impact of food.”
  • “Fat isn’t the outcome of taking care of your body.”
  • “Meal plans and knowledge aren’t what got me to the place I am now.”
  • “The brain is required to make us eat. We aren’t supposed to starve.”
  • “Question your beliefs about what health really looks like.”
