The countdown is on until the clock strikes midnight and we're into a whole new year. As we look back on 2016 we couldn't be more proud of the hundreds of clients we've helped reach, or begin the journey towards, their health goals. Our company has grown and so has our podcast Dishing Up Nutrition, now reaching over two million listeners around the world. While we think that all our podcast topics have been timely and important, we're not above picking favorites! We went back and reviewed which podcasts have been liked, shared, listened to, downloaded or commented on the most throughout the year and are sharing our top four most popular podcasts for your listening pleasure.

Grab some tea and take a listen. Grab your dog and listen while you walk. Tune us in while you're cooking for the week. However you do it, listen and get inspired to make 2017 your best year yet!

#4 Taking Care of the Caregiver

Perhaps you've heard of the saying "You can't pour from an empty cup" before? Meaning you can't take care of others without first taking care of yourself, "filling your cup" if you will. Never is this clearer than when caregiving, either for ailing parents or young children. Caregiving happens more often than people give themselves credit for. In this podcast our nutritionists share what foods will keep you healthy, happy and full of energy to better assist others.

#3 Low Moods and You—the Nutritional Solution

Most people aren't aware that what they're eating has a direct impact on their mood, for better or worse. For those looking for a more natural approach to a happier outlook, we're sharing what critical nutrients your brain needs to produce good mood chemicals. Listen as we uncover what many refer to as good mood foods.

#2 Gut Health and Weight Loss

When working on weight loss are you simultaneously working on your gut health? Chances are not, but new science is pointing to gut health being an important factor in losing weight. If you're confused, you're not alone. Listen in to learn what the bacteria in your gut have to do with your metabolism and ultimate weight loss.

#1 Six Steps to Quit Eating Sugar

The American Heart Association recommends no more than 6 teaspoons of sugar daily for adults, yet most people eat 22-26 teaspoons of added sugar. What's more, it's been found that sugar is a huge culprit when it comes to heart disease—not the fat and cholesterol we were led to believe. Listen in for six steps on how to cut the hidden sugars and the obvious sweets from your diet and reap the numerous benefits.

And that's a wrap! We'll see you next year as Dishing Up Nutrition takes on more nutrition topics and answers your questions. Don't want to wait until next year?
