Think that sounds woo woo af? It's not. It's actually well documented that our thoughts can affect our physiology, sometimes instantaneously.
For example, people with multiple personality disorders...
A few weeks ago, my friend Doug reached out to me wondering why he actually got more shredded while eating more carbs during quarantine.
This may sound totally counterintuitive, especially in the age of keto where 'experts' would have you believe that low carb is the best way to go if your primary goal is weight loss.
But as per usual, the weight loss industry loves highlighting the quick fix side of these trends, while ignoring the long term implications on your health and weight...
So you want to lose weight, you're ready to take your fitness goals off the back burner, and kick your butt into gear. And low and behold, like an answer to your prayers, you see an ad for the newest diet that promises you'll drop 20 pounds in your first month, and all you have to do is (fill in the blank).
You've been here before. Sometimes the fill in the blank is simple and straight forward, like cutting out all added sugar. Sometimes it's gross like only drinking a concoction of lemon and cayenne...
Have you ever experienced symptoms that you couldn't explain?
Has a doctor ever prescribed you medicine to mask your symptoms without really knowing the cause?
Have you ever had the joy of dealing with adult acne, eczema, psoriasis, diarrhea, fatigue, bloating, constipation, thyroid issues, autoimmune diseases, bloating, headaches, foggy headedness, PCOS, food sensitivities, diabetes, joint pain, and/or other inflammatory conditions?
Believe it or not, it could all be pointing back to your gut. Your ...
We've all been told the rule of weight loss is to burn more calories than you consume. And while there is a lot more complexity in how different food affects your body, your metabolism, your hormones, and your health (more on that in the 'eat less/move more' bonus episode after episode 33), the general premise is true.
But for those of us who don't have the time, energy, or desire to count every morsel that touches our lips, how do we ensure we're creating that deficit?
Here are 3 proven ways to...
If you struggle staying motivated to workout regularly, I totally understand. Even as a personal trainer I struggle with this from time to time. But while we tend to preoccupy ourselves with finding motivation hacks, rarely do we take the time to figure out how we're sabotaging our motivation to begin with.
1. You're pigeonholing what it means to 'workout'.
If you say you don't like working out, chances are you have a very narrow perspective on what working out is. Getting your exercise in doesn't mean you have...

We all know habits are the keys to our success in any endeavor we have.
Our ability to achieve our dreams virtually never comes down to one big thing we did. It's what we do, how we think, and how we respond to challenges every single day, without even thinking, that truly determines our fate.
So here is my 6-to-Stick Method (as seen in my Life Unleashed Program) for creating healthy habits that will stand the test of time, motivation, and busy-ness.
Whenever you choose the habit that you want...
It's Valentine's week and I decided to spice things up for today's episode of the Life Unleashed Show.
I had the pleasure of interviewing coach Amanda Tull who specializes in helping women have clear, confident, and courageous conversations about sex so we can live in a healthier environment with thriving relationships.
Here are the questions and struggles we covered in the episode:
1. Consistently gather information until you can't ignore the facts.
2. Figure out YOUR why. Remember, an object at rest stays at rest. And an object in motion stays in motion. You need your goals to be acted on by an outside force; that's what your why is. But it has to be strong enough and powerful enough to get you moving.
