Is fruit healthy? You probably think I'm crazy for asking this, whether you think it's healthy or unhealthy. There's pretty much two camps: fruit has way too much sugar, and fruit is the ultimate health food! Of course, the truth lies in the middle.
Soda is pretty addictive, and honestly... not that great for your health (but that's another episode!). Today we're going to explore just what it is about drinking soda that makes it such an addictive beverage. Is it the sugar? The caffeine? Both? Let's find out!
On this episode of the Healthy Gamer Girl Podcast, we talk about whether coffee or green tea is the healthier option. Is one really better for you than the other? Are either really healthy beverages? What should you drink before a raid? Which one will keep you powered up through seven hours of garrison maintenance? As a semi-professional coffee drinker, and former barista, I actually found this to be a really cool topic, and I hope you do, too!
Red meat causes cancer! Bacon is going to kill you! Kind of... maybe... not. Today, we look at the World Health Organization's recent proclamation about red meat, bacon and cancer, and talk about ways to reduce the cancer-causing compounds that are causing such a stir!
We all have cheat days/moments on a ketogenic or low carb diet, but here's how you can reduce the damage, and get right back on track!
Today, I babble about hiking & cosplaying, ponder learning Thalassian and discuss how we need to celebrate the small victories, and get excited about baby steps. Good health doesn't happen overnight!

Your nerd rage could be making you fat, or at least store a lot of fat in your belly. It's all because of cortisol and we'll learn a bit about that in this episode!
Now that I've been babbling at you for 12 episodes about health, and nutrition as it relates to those of us in the gaming space (or, I guess general computer hyper-users), I thought I'd take a few moments to explain why I'm so passionate about this field! No official show notes for this one.
