Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
Hormones... they can be our greatest gift, supporting our ability to have children, making us feel sexy sexy when our partner gives us 'the eyes', guiding our bodies to function properly with intricate messages sent on a second-to-second basis.
They also can be the bane of our existence, wreaking havoc on our emotions, cursing us with cramps, and directing fat deposits to hold onto our hips for dear life.
Two episodes back we talked about the myriad of things we can do to support our hormone health, but then I...
Picture this: you're in your 40's and suddenly you're experiencing things you've never had to deal with before. You're getting hot when it's 62 degrees outside, your husband's chewing is suddenly making you irrationally angry, you're starting to see a tire forming around your midsection despite your daily barre class, and sleep comes in inconsistent waves that are driving you mad.
Yup, you've hit perimenopause and now you want to know what to do to slow down the clock (if not turn it back...

We're going to answer all that and more in...
Raise your hand if you've found yourself foregoing your morning coffee for a cup of hot lemon water or a giant glass of celery juice.

Or if you've put yourself through the gag-inducing shot of apple cider vinegar before your meals...
All in the name of dropping a few stubborn pounds.
The question is, do these diet tricks belong in the giant book of weight loss hoaxes? Or is there scientific merit to any of these...
Have you ever heard of the body type diet or the metabolic type diet?
Or maybe you've heard the terms 'ectomorphs', 'endomorphs', or 'mesomorphs' thrown around on social media or in your local gym.
If so, you may have some questions like one of our awesome podcast listeners did, such as: what's the actual science behind it? And is it a useful thing to know and rely on in a better health journey?
So the truth is, in the 40's a psychologist by the name of Doctor William Sheldon came up with the 3...
I can't count how many times in my career I've uttered the words, "No one is fat because of eating bananas."
I actually remember the first time I said it.
I had a client who ate virtually every meal out, who regularly drank 4-5 artificially sweetened ice teas at one sitting, and who was just getting into a workout routine.
