Chewing the Lean with Kelly and Jean show

#512 Show Summary (Chewing the Lean with Kelly and Jean show):

Tom Hanks has type II diabetes. There is more sleep inducing tryptophan in chicken than there is in Turkey. Visualizing yourself as a thin person doesn’t always help your diet. Our guest, St. Claire Regional Dietitian Jean Jones, and her EKU dietetic intern Kelly Jewell separate fat from fiction this week.

Tip: Risk factors for diabetes include being obese, high blood pressure, having a family history, and being over 45 years old. Talk to your doctor about getting tested.
