011: Why You Should Focus on Healing, Not Weight Loss, to Get Healthy

Podcast | 0 comments

Most women don’t consider that calorie cutting and exercise are forms of stress.

They are great stressors in a system that can handle them, but to be honest, most women who are experiencing some form of physiological breakdown are not in the best position to be dealing with MORE stress, they need to unload their stress. In other words, women need to heal their systems BEFORE they add stressors like calorie cutting and cardio. Just as an athlete has to fortify their system to be able to handle the demands of competition, you need to heal your system to be able to handle the demands of things like calorie restriction and aggressive workouts.
