What are the benefits? How do you do it? What can you eat? What can't you eat? How long should a fast be? Is 1 day enough? How long do I have to fast to get benefits?
So many questions about extended fasting and we're tackling them today! Plus, I'll be sharing details of my recent 7 day fast including why I did it, how I felt, what benefits I experienced, if I'd do it again and how I broke my fast.

If you take the time to listen, I have no doubt you'll make faster progress and it will feel like less of a struggle or fight against yourself.
Join the Spring 12 weeks to transformation!
One of my favorite parts of my 12 week coaching groups is when I get to chat on the phone with people, talk about where they are at and collaborate on creating solutions.
Last week I had a powerful conversation about how our thoughts & words are like a compass - the point us in a given direction. We can really accelerate our progress when we consider the direction in which a given thought or declaration points us.
In this conversation, my client shared that she was often writing in her journal, "The day is already off to a bad start."
Given that all declarations are directional and that declaration is a compass - which direction does that declaration point to?
Certainly not the way she wants to go...
I think you're really going to enjoy this conversation!
Ready for another Food As Medicine episode? I'm really psyched for this one because I'm VERY passionate about sulfur-rich veggies like brussels sprouts & broccoli. I have no doubt that they have transformed my health.
Today we are talking about everything from skin health to metabolism, detoxification, hormones, arthritis & asthma. Plus, we'll go into how you can make these veggies super delicious if you're not usually a big veggie fan.

Q&A 7: Cholesterol Is Not The Culprit
There is no circumstance that takes away your ever-present super power: the power of choice.
No matter how much time you have, how much stress you're under, how upset you are or how inconsistent your past has been, you still hold the transformative power of choice.
It's always with you.
In today's episode we're talking about a major barrier to change: elevating your circumstances, diminishing yourself and convincing yourself that you are small & powerless in the face of things that happen to and around you.
It's just not true. Today, we're taking your power back. Today, you'll refuse to diminish yourself and step into your power.
Episode 447: The Power of Convincing
The other day I listened to Dan Heath share a story about college professors. It really moved me & inspired this episode. Here's a quick summary of the story he told.
A group of college professors were asked what one or two things they'd want their students to remember 10 years later. Of all the things they'd teach, what was most important that they carry with them, understand or know how to do years into the future?
The professors all shared their answers.
Then, they were asked what percentage of their syllabus was dedicated to teaching that thing.
Very little, it turned out. Not nearly enough.
I thought about that question. If there was ONE SINGLE THING I could impress upon you guys with my podcast, one single skill, habit or mindset that I could guarantee you mastered and carried with you, what would it be?
Today, I'm sharing that thing with you.
I'm also promising to talk about & teach this thing much more regularly.
Enjoy the episode! If you have questions or there are parts of it you want me to go more deeply into, make sure to leave a comment!

The Power of Moments by Chip & Dan Heath
Just because you could lose more weight or you want to lose more weight, doesn't mean you're a failure if you aren't seeing results.
We need to stop being ashamed of maintenance or plateaus.
We need to see them as critical parts of the process that shouldn't be fought or rushed.
One of the best ways to ensure the change you've worked hard to create is permanent is to prove your ability to maintain it. Periods of maintenance can & should happen along the path to progress.
Furthermore, it's beyond okay if weight loss isn't your objective at all times. You can have other priorities while you hold the line.
I am super fired up to share today's episode with you. You've got to take a listen!

My travel habits used to be a complete nightmare. I'd binge in airports, overeat on roadtrips and justify every indulgence because I was out of my normal routine.
All the while, I'd make myself empty (yet well intentioned) promises about how "on point" I'd be when I returned home.
I'd return home from vacations, business trips or road trips feeling exhausted, defeated and tremendously disappointed in myself.
I was both physically & emotionally heavier than when I had left.
Because of this habit, I feared travel. I felt like it was impossible to make progress towards my goals, impossible to avoid derailing, when I was away from home.
But, I successfully transformed my travel habits & in today's episode I'm going to share with you the steps I took to create the change.

Avoiding Travel Trainwrecks Part 1
Artisana Coconut Butter Travel Packets
I used to fear travel. For me, based on my past experiences, travel was a time for overeating, overindulging, and making all sorts of pledges about how I'll "get serious" when I return home.
I'd return exhausted, frustrated, feeling bad about my body and completely overwhelmed by all the changes I wanted to make.
In the past few years, I have transformed my travel habits.
Over the next two episodes I'll share how I made those changes (without restriction, deprivation or missing out) and I'll also address some of your biggest travel fears & frustrations.
Thanks to everyone who shared questions and struggles for this episode!

Why is it that we hold others to higher standards than those to which we hold ourselves?
Why is it unacceptable for others to break promises to us but we let ourselves off the hook for it every day?
Is it not a little hypocritical to demand change from others before demanding it of ourselves?
Today's episode is short and powerful. I hope you'll take a listen and then take action.
