Episode 153: 6 Reasons You Crave Junk Food All the Time

May 17, 2022

Listen In   

Summary 

 I remember a time when food consumed my thoughts.
 
The second I woke up I looked forward to breakfast.
 
In between meals I counted the minutes until I could eat again.
 
All day I debated with myself about what treats I would let myself have. 
 
The first question I always had for my mom after school was, "What's for dinner?"
 
If there were treats at a party I could barely stay present with the people I was talking to because part of my attention was...

Episode 150: Can Food Sensitivities Impact Your Weight??

Apr 26, 2022

Listen In  

Summary 

When I was a young dancer, all I wanted was the body to match the hobby.
 
I looked at the toned abs of my older sister with envy and lamented the soft stomach I saw highlighted in my leotard.
 
At the time I was dancing regularly and working out outside of classes. I was constantly reading nutrition books, jumping on and off diets, promising myself I wouldn't eat pretzels, carbs, sugar, fill-in-the-blank. 
 
It seemed no matter what I did, I would never have the body I dreamed...

Episode 149: How I'm Surviving an 8-Month Elimination Diet

Apr 19, 2022

Listen In  

Summary 

 I have a confession to make. My name is Kat, I am a gut health coach, and I just got diagnosed with 2 major gut problems: H Pylori and SIBO.

Is there part of me that's embarrassed? Sure. The perfectionist in me doesn't want to admit that as a health coach I still have health problems. 

But the truth is, I have 20 years of damage to make up for. 

Just to give you a little background on me.

  • When I was a baby, I had to be put on antibiotics when I was admitted to the hospital. Studies show...

Last week I posted a video on Instagram explaining why the health of our gut is essential on our weight loss journey (especially when you feel like you’ve already tried everything).

To recap, your gut microbiome…

Impacts your metabolism, appetite, and fat storage.

Mar 15, 2022

Listen In  

Summary 

Weight loss plateaus. 

They are annoying. Frustrating. Defeating. Discouraging. And all around sucky. 

They also are inevitable on any weight loss journey, so instead of fighting the unavoidable, let's understand why they happen and what you can do to get that scale moving again (without doing anything you're going to regret later).

Why do plateaus happen?

When you start to lose weight you tend to lose it quickly because - spoiler alert - a good amount of it is water weight. Initially your body...

Summer is quickly approaching and with the season of bikinis and short-shorts upon us, you may be contemplating the idea of a 'cleanse' or 'detox' to tighten up those trouble zones.

Episode 141: Secrets of a Health Coach... How to Beat the Belly Bloat!

Feb 22, 2022

Listen In  

Summary 

This is it folks... the day you've all been waiting for... the day that I, Kat Spangler, share how to get. slim. quick.

Now if you know me at all, you know this is a very big divergence from my usual mission.

I am NOT a 'quick fix' weight loss coach. Crash dieting to drop a few fast pounds is unsustainable, often unhealthy, and usually causes more weight gain than weight loss in the long run. 

BUT... there is one tiny exception to this rule:

Quickly reducing bloating. 

When you...

Episode 140: Sugar Alternatives... The Good, The Bad, and the Yucky.

Feb 15, 2022

Summary 

Sugar alternatives. They seem like a good idea... Some boast they don't raise your blood sugar. Many have zero calories. Sounds like the perfect weight loss ingredient, right?

Well, the truth is... it depends. 

Because just like not all carbs are created equal, not all sugar alternatives are created equal. And while some are perfectly safe to enjoy in small amounts, others should be avoided like the plague. 

So here are some things I want you to keep in mind before we dive...

Episode 137: Why Calorie Counting Hasn't Worked for You and What to Do Instead

Jan 25, 2022

Listen In 

Summary 

Calorie counting is outdated weight loss advice.

I said what I said. 

Not because you don’t need a calorie deficit to lose weight, you most definitely do. 

But here’s the problem with trying to count your calories (aside from the fact that it’s a pain in the ass):

  1. The number of calories on the box doesn’t tell you how many calories you actually absorb (the more processed a food, the more calories you will absorb). 
  2. The calorie counts on nutrition labels are legally...
