Lisa Nave Therapy

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Lisa Nave, MFT.

Healthy Weight, Healthy Pregnancy

September 5, 2017

Marin weight loss

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article by Dr. Gail Altschuler, MD of Marin Weight Loss and Wellness.

Physicians understand the negative health consequences of being overweight, including a higher incidence of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and back pain, to name a few. Another consequence is the effect of weight on fertility, fertility treatment and pregnancy, as well as the ongoing health of mother and child.

Infertility, for example, is significantly higher in women who are overweight, and it increases as their BMI rises.1,2 Attempts to become pregnant through escalating interventions become ever more physically, financially and emotionally costly. These costs become statistically significant, and they are more pronounced at higher BMIs, especially if there is central obesity.2

Grilled Lamb and Summer Vegetables

This article is sponsored by Marin Whole Foods Markets, where you can buy local, sustainably raised Pozzi lamb at the butcher counter.

Summertime means grilling time! We’re always looking for healthy ingredients to throw on the grill, and this time we gave locally raised lamb a try. I know there are plenty of people out there who profess to dislike lamb, but it’s really worth trying, especially if it’s locally raised and grass-fed, like the Pozzi Ranch lamb offered at the butcher counter at Marin’s Whole Foods Markets.

Stephanie Pope

In this sponsored article from Whole Foods Market, we meet Stephanie Pope, who runs the Whole Body team at the Whole Foods Market store in Novato. We asked Stephanie to tell us about herself and her background, and to fill us in on her picks for the best kinds of sunscreen to use this summer. Stephanie is also the mom of 10-month-old Justine Bel!

What’s your background? Please tell us a little about you.

I began working for Whole Foods Market as a cashier in college back in 1999. I moved to New York City in 2001 after graduating college and continued to work for Whole Foods Market at the Chelsea store in Manhattan. That is where I found my home in Whole Body. I got a position as an Assistant Buyer and quickly advanced to Associate Team Leader for the Whole Body department. I opened the Columbus Circle store in Manhattan and in 2005 I moved back to Northern California to be the whole Body Team Leader at the Sebastopol store. In 2007 I joined the NorCal regional team as Associate Coordinator for Whole Body  From 2009–2012 I joined the Store Leadership team and worked at the Franklin, SOMA, and San Rafael locations. In 2012, I decided to follow my heart and step down from Store Leadership to go back to Whole Body. That is when I started working at the Novato store and running the Whole Body team here.
