I'm sure you realize that your stress levels might be contributing to your trouble losing weight. But I'm not sure you realize what is contributing to your stress levels. Sure, emotional stress is a big problem. But what about physical stress? Processed foods, sugars and toxins create a stress response in your body whether you feel it or not. They cause damage at the cellular and vascular level that you might not recognize or feel for years. In today's episode we talk about stress management for weight loss: the common causes of stress, the symptoms of elevated cortisol, how it impacts your health and fat burning potential and how you can control cortisol via diet and lifestyle.

Fat loss is 90% what you eat. What you eat is 90% mental. If you don't control your thoughts, they will control you. This is very clear when we consider all the times we've really wanted to make good food choices but cave to temptation in the moment. Controlling your thoughts isn't just about positive thinking - in fact, positive thinking often falls far short. This is where power thinking comes into play. In this episode we talk about why positive thinking isn't enough and how power thinking can make a huge difference in your life regardless of your goal.

In today's episode we're tackling how to eat healthy on a budget. Eating for fat loss or "going paleo/primal" does not have to be more expensive than the Standard American Diet. Can it be? Sure. But you can have a huge grocery budget on the Standard American Diet or you can have a small one. Similiarly, you can have a huge grocery budget on a Primal diet or you can have a small one. There are ways. You get what you look for. You can absolutely eat healthy on a budget. In this episode, we'll show you how.

Just because it is derived from a whole food does not mean it is good for fat loss. Heck, just because something is a whole food doesn't mean it is good for fat loss! I'll be super straight forward about this: dried fruit is not a fat loss food. In fact, in many cases it contains more sugar than a candy bar and it does not and will not trigger our satiety signals.
