Last week I was interviewed about the role of mindset - the way we think and make decisions - in our quest to create change.
I talked about the most common mistakes I see that hold people back and some simple strategies to overcome them. Plus, I talk about my journey, my childhood and how I created massive change and improvement in my own life.
When the full interview becomes available, I'll be sure to share on Instagram where you can find it. For now, this episode is a great one!

I am beyond excited for this 2nd episode in the Food As Medicine series of the podcast! Today we are talking about turmeric and it's active components, curcuminoids.
Curcumin has long been used to fight inflammation but it does so much more than that! We'll explore the role of turmeric in cell health, inflammation, skin health, depression, cognitive function and more!
We'll differentiate between turmeric root and turmeric powder, talk about how to identify a quality supplement and I'll even share a few recipes.

We've become too passive in our own lives. We go with the flow instead of stepping up to be in charge of the journey.
Today's episode is a call to be warrior in your own life. It's a call to stop being a victim of your circumstances, to stop acting as if stepping into your potential is a burden or a chore - it is the purpose of your life and the path to a much more fulfilling version of yourself.
Here's to becoming a warrior!
Two completely random things inspired me this week. They reminded me of how I'm probably the least likely person on the planet to end up with a podcast about fat loss.
My journey has been hard. It's been full of struggle. And yet, I'm here.

I hope you'll take a listen to this inspired episode about my heart, my mission and my passion.
For the past couple weeks, I've been challenging myself to eat more raw vegetables. I wanted to see if there was an impact on my digestion and my energy levels. There has been.
In today's episode I'm going to talk about the pros & cons of raw vegetables, which ones you should eat raw and which ones are best prepared cooked (from a nutritional standpoint).
I'm going to share the changes I've made recently, specifically how I'm incorporating raw vegetables and what benefits I've noticed.
I hope you enjoy the episode!

What does meditation have to do with weight loss? Anything?
I say with strong conviction: a lot!
First and foremost, meditation decreases cortisol levels. Chronically elevated cortisol levels impair decision making, increase hunger, increase cravings, impair sleep and blunt insulin responsiveness.
But: meditation takes time. It's hard. Most people suck at it. Those are the most common objections I hear.
If you've ever had those frustrations or if you've wondered about meditation, you will want to hear this episode!
Two of the biggest threats to your metabolism & overall health are chronic stress and overeating. Interestingly, chronic stress drives overeating and overeating creates additional stress. It's what's known as a "feed forward" cycle.
In today's episode we're talking about how stress (physical and emotional) drives appetite and cravings while impairing your ability to make sound decisions.
Most importantly, we'll be talking about dietary and lifestyle changes you can make to not only reduce the chronic stressors in your life but also improve your response to them.

Earlier in the week, I shared a post on Instagram that got a lot of people talking. It said: create a life you don't need to escape from.
I dove deeper into this idea that you need to create a life you don't want or need to escape from on the blog, but many people requested that I go even deeper on the podcast, and that's what we're doing today!

The other night, I was sitting on the couch around 8pm and all I could think about was that I wanted some chocolate.
I was actively talking myself into it, making a case for it, justifying it (successfully) and planning what I would get & where I would get it.
Suddenly, I realized that just like I could talk myself into wanting chocolate, I could talk myself into not wanting it.
I didn't have to rely on self-discipline or willpower, but I could simply make a case for why I didn't want it.
In today's episode I'll show you exactly how I did that and how you can use this approach - willpower & self-discipline not required!

I'm excited to kick off a new series on the podcast: Food As Medicine!
Every couple of weeks I'll be featuring one food or ingredient and sharing it's medicinal benefits!
This series is in no way meant to replace Western medicine but there is absolutely room for both approaches!
In today's episode, we're talking about the medicinal benefits of coconut. Don't miss it!
Tough love episode coming at you! It's time to raise the bar, expect more from yourself and finally get beyond that struggle you've been working on for far too long!
Instead of differentiating between food & drink, what if you saw them both as fuel?
That glass of wine is fuel. Does your body need fuel?
What happens when you give your body excess fuel?
It has to be stored.
In today's episode I'm taking you inside my inbox to hear a response to a listener who is differentiating between her food choices and her drinking choices.
