221: Fat Loss Basics, Part 3: When Stress is a Good Thing
In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I talk about when and how to use stressors like calorie reduction and intense exercise to accelerate the fat loss response.
I also address:
• the “maturity spectrum” of fat loss
• ways to tweak diet and exercise when you’ve hit a plateau
• the cost of leanness
… and so much more
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?
219: Fat Loss Basics, Part 1: Clearing up a few misunderstandings.
Weight loss is not a conversation I am interested in for so many reasons. Healthy fat loss, however, IS a topic that I am interested in having with the right women at the right time.
In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I bring some clarity to what can be a very confusing topic. More specifically, I discuss:
• Why I don’t believe fat loss is the right conversation to be having with all women who want to “lose weight”
• Why where you carry your weight matters
• Why focusing on healing and building muscle is smarter than focusing on losing fat
• The three-part process for changing body composition that protects a woman’s mental health as she works to improve her physical health
… and so much more.
Have a listen. I hope it helps or, at the very least, you learn a little something.Listen Now!

217: Getting Real about Weight Loss
The Grace & Grit Podcast is about to enter its 6th year of production and in the over 215 episodes that I have recorded, I have only specifically addressed the topic of weight loss a couple of times.
