Episode 9: What to do when you've tried millions of diets and don't know what healthy is for you anymore (Body Wisdom Series 1)

Audio


This episode is #1 in the Body Wisdom Series.

If you’ve been in my crowd for any length of time you already know how much I love being able to chat with all of you and ask you about what’s going on with your health. And that’s what inspired this Body Wisdom Series.

I named it Body Wisdom because I really believe that is the ONLY path to truly looking and feeling your best, and that’s listening and being able to interpret what YOUR body is trying to tell you. When you have body wisdom you’ll have vibrant health no matter what’s going on because you’re always listening to the expert - your body!

Today’s question has 3 really important parts:

  1. breaking down big health goals

  2. how to even know what’s healthy for you after trying so many different things

  3. after trying ‘millions’ of diets, how do you know what to follow

Plus I have a special guest joining me - Natasha is a fitness and nutrition expert and has 15 years of working with women.

In this episode we’ll cover:

  • why diets don’t work (what Natasha calls the ‘cycle of failure’)

  • what to do about late night snacking (especially sweet treats)

  • red and green light foods

  • wet vs. dry carbs

  • the power of whole foods (and some love for fiber)

  • and so much more….

No matter where you are on your health journey there is something here for you. Enjoy!

Podcast size (1).png

Audio


Last week in episode 1 of our 5 part eat right series we set the foundation for eating right. If you haven’t heard that episode you’ll want to go and give it a listen before you jump into today episode.

Even though we know that eating right is foundational to looking and feeling our best it can sometimes feel like it’s out of our control.

Have you ever found yourself at the bottom of a bag of chips or that 3rd glass of wine you swore you wouldn’t have?

How about standing in front of your open fridge even when you know you aren’t hungry?

Why does this happen? And why do we feel so powerless to stop?

Today we’re going to be looking for answers. We’ll be looking at the concept of false pleasures:

  • what they are

  • why we do them

  • why does it matter

  • 2 questions you can use to determine if what you’re doing is a false pleasure

  • and 3 in-depth, step-by-step strategies to be more in control

Episode 1: Introducing Healthier

Goals that Stick FB prompts (1).png


Healthier has been in the works, well, as you’ll hear in this short intro episode, since July 12, 2014.

In a time when we can find anything online health information is at our fingertips. And yet how do you know that what you’re hearing is factual? Your health is not a guessing game. The decisions you make can have a lasting effect on how you look and feel.

Plus the amount of information is overwhelming. And the experts seem to constantly contradict one another.

That’s why it’s never been more important for you to be in charge of your health. How do you do that? You have to learn what works, and what doesn’t work, for you, your body, and your life.


No one is better positioned to be an expert in you, than you are.


My mission is to share the foundations of health and how your body works so that you can be informed and the final vote on what you need.

By starting with the foundations you can gather all the information you need to not only make informed decisions but also to take everything you know about your body with you to your healthcare practitioners. Having been in private practice for over 15 years I can tell you that the more you can tell us the better we can help you.

Healthier is all about sharing these fundamentals and giving you the tools to study yourself. And in the process follow my 3 step path to being healthier.

#1 Strategy

After nearly 2 decades of working with women who want to be healthier I can honestly say it’s not a lack of knowing what you should be doing. It’s not knowing the very next best steps and the right order. It’s trying to get from A-Z instead of A-B.

#2 - Accountability

Once you have a clear strategy you’re on your way. But it isn’t enough to just know what to do.

You need to follow through. And this is where most of us struggle. Starting strong and fizzling out, jumping from one thing to another thing and never getting any real traction, giving up. Here’s the truth: accountability is not something you either have or don’t, it’s a skill you need to learn and strengthen. And without it, you’re stuck spinning your wheels, frustrated and baffled as to why you don’t just do the things that make you feel better.

#3 - A plan (that actually works)

The there’s the busy-ness of life and all the competing priorities, daily obstacles and hurdles that get in the way of prioritizing your health. You need a way to stay at the top of your to-do list, not constantly sliding down to the forgotten bottom.

When you have these 3 things (1) strategy, (2) accountability, and (3) a plan that’s when you’ll be healthier.

Welcome, this podcast is all about guiding you along this 3 step path.
