The 100th Episode – The Factors of Failure and the Strategies for Success

by | Aug 15, 2015 | Blog

This is the 100th episode of the Primal Potential podcast! In this episode, I’m sharing some specifics about the factors that led to my emotional eating, weight gain and unhealthy relationship with food as well as the strategies I used to permanently overcome the factors that held me back for most of my life.

To help celebrate the 100th episode I’ve made available 100 coupons each for 2 of my most powerful e-courses. These two e-courses represent the most significant lessons and strategies that helped me beat obesity, lose 140 lbs and transform my life.

The first, Overcoming Emotional Eating and Self-Limiting Beliefs will help any and all of you who have negative or destructive beliefs about yourself or your ability to reach your goals. If you don’t believe you can change then you can’t. Yes, fat loss is 90% nutrition but your food choices are 90% mental. It’s not about what you eat but rather why you eat. This course will help you overcome the  mental constructs that repeatedly hold you back and keep you in the cycle of yo-yo dieting. It also includes guided meditations to help you stay present and settle down all the noise in your mind that gets in your way. Use the coupon code “100”.

The second course delivers the most high-impact anti-diet fat loss strategies. It boils down fat loss to the most significant and effective changes you can implement. It teaches you the Golden Rules of Carbs & Fat Loss, helps you understand the nuances of carb timing, quantity, quality, how to improve your carb tolerance, recipes, meal ideas and more. Use the coupon code “100”.

  • How I developed a negative association with exercise

  • How I developed the belief that I was just “the big girl”
  • How I tried to compensate and apologize for my weight

More importantly, I share how I overcame those negative mindsets and redefined  my relationship with food. I share the primary strategies and mindsets that allowed me to end 20+ years of yo-yo dieting and completely reclaim my life.

  • Eliminating negative self talk
  • Staying in the present moment
  • Not allowing myself to be overwhelmed by the future and the length of the journey
  • Making small changes
