In episode 134, Jill and Chris talk with Karín Feltman, a registered nurse and the author of Fit, Fierce, and Fabulous Over 50! Her first book was Plant-based Basics. Her work focuses on holistic health for women over 50, with a particular focus on intermittent fasting and healing through nutrition.

She is a full-time cross-cultural worker in Nepal. She doesn’t always have access to the Internet so we’ve been waiting for a chance to talk with her. She graciously made time for us when she was available, technology-wise.

Karín was a hospital nurse for 23 years, before beginning work in relief provision and mission trips. She now works on empowerment projects for vulnerable girls and women in Nepal and uses her writing to help fund greater opportunities for the communities she works with.

She completed the VegHealth Nutrition Mastery Course with the VegHealth Institute, and continues her research on holistic health and healing.

Karín is a self-confessed foodie and loves discovering delicious new plant-based recipes, picking up fresh ideas from every new culture she visits.

  1. Can you tell me a good podcast for best longevity exercise regimes for older women? Andrew Huberman’s podcast is biased towards male health. Very frustrating. Thanks!

    1. Mischa:
      GREAT question. Two things jump out immediately. 1) lift weights, start where you are but progress to heavier weights. This helps bone density,
      2) Get some regular moving. Brisk walking. Or swimming. Or running. Or biking. Or dancing. Or Yoga. Getting your heart rate up for cardio and keeping your flexibility and balance is very important.

      I find it helps when it’s something you like to do, because you’ll continue doing it!

      I’m going to research this a bit more. Would make a good episode, wouldn’t it!?! Thanks, Chris

  2. I enjoyed this podcast very much. I have dabbled in If, Keri, and anti-inflammation “diets” for the pst 10 years, since peri- menopause and beyond. Of the many pearls, the “diet” that works is what one will stick with- amen!
    At 62, I find inflammation, and chronic injuries due to overuse on the gym, have lead me to re-evaluate my WOE (way of eating) and exercise and movements, that and a blown back. So, thank you for helping me stay and keep moving, while staying dueled well. I appreciate the manner in which you address the >50 crowd, we are still vital and the information you present (Sanja Gupta was fabulous too) gold.
    Be well!

    1. So glad you are enjoying the podcast and thank you so much for leaving a comment. We appreciate it!

  3. I follow keto/low carb and an intermittent fasting schedule. Along with exercise, it helped me lose 65 pounds and reduced inflammation in my body. Like Karin, I also have lipedema and this lifestyle helps manage that disorder. I follow Karin, have read her book, and am considering trying a plant based eating style to see how my body responds. This was a great interview. Thank you all.

    1. Hi Cynthia, Thank you for your comments. I’d be interested in hearing how you do with eating in a plant based style if you also follow keto/low carb. That always seems challenging to me. Let us know how it works for you.
