Our culture LOVES to focus on “weight loss” as the linchpin to improved health, but that is problematic for so many reasons…
There are a TON of unhealthy ways to lose weight.
It is possible to be thin and metabolically obese.
Your lifestyle habits influence your health more than your weight actually does.
In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I challenge you to drop the “my weight is the problem” storyline and instead, shift your focus to the real problems.Listen Now!
I am so excited to welcome you into a brand spankin’ new year.
The Grace & Grit Podcast is rolling into its 5th year of production, so I thought this would be a GREAT time to reintroduce myself and the mission of this show:)
Have a listen and welcome to 2021!Listen Now!
To wrap up this 4-part series on fat loss, I answer some of the most frequently asked questions that I receive on this topic.
• How do I measure body fat?
• Can I build muscle and lose weight at the same time?
• How much should I be eating?
• How many times a day should I eat?
• Can I drink alcohol and lose fat?
Have a listen. I hope it helps:)Listen Now!
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
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?
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!
