Fat Loss Basics, Part 2: The Foundation Matters

220: Fat Loss Basics, Part 2: The Foundation Matters

​When it comes to fat loss, your hormonal health matters… a lot!

Your hormones are the government of your body, so when they are out of alignment, messages aren’t communicated correctly, things get a little (or VERY) confused and a lot of metabolic dysfunction ensues:

Your gut health gets disrupted.
Your mental health takes a hit.
Your organ’s ability to function at full capacity declines.
Your muscle health suffers.
… just to name a few things.

And all of this chaos, in turn, contributes to even more hormonal dysfunction and round and round it goes making fat loss feel impossible.

So the question is:
How do you heal and fortify your hormonal landscape?

Renovating Your Life to Support Your Health

183: Renovating Your Life to Support Your Health

I call the years between 40 and 60 the renovation years.

Why?

Because of shifting hormones combined with balancing more responsibilities than ever, we are really presented with an opportunity at this age and stage of life to take stock of our total stress load and make some hard choices in how to better manage that.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I share the advice that I believe women in our age bracket need to hear (far beyond cookie-cutter diet and exercise recommendations).

Restoring Hormonal Health w/ Kiran Ram

157: Restoring Hormonal Health w/ Kiran Ram

It is fundamentally impossible to create a state of deep health without adequate recovery and I will forever be reminding my listeners, my clients and my community that the answers to improving health are often not found in doing more but doing less.

In a culture that glorifies hustle, it can be really difficult to slow down and grant yourself adequate permission to rest and recover, which can dramatically affect your hormonal system. When hormones are disrupted everything feels challenging and no one understands this better than women entering perimenopause and menopause.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I have invited my friend, Kiran Ram, to the show to help women better understand how lifestyle choices can help to restore hormonal balance.

Have a listen and share your thoughts!
