432: How Your Microbiome Can Help You Burn Fat

432: How Your Microbiome Can Help You Burn Fat

We have more bacterial cells and bacterial genes in our bodies than we do human cells and human genes.

Our microbiome influences every single aspect of our health. It has a tremendous influence over our metabolisms, hunger, appetite, fat storage and fat burning.

If we aren’t being intentional about optimizing our microbiome, chances are that it’s not working in our favor, or, a best, not working for us as well as it could.

In today’s episode we’re talking about tactics and strategies to minimize damage and maximize benefits.

430: Slowing Down To Speed Up – Stamina Before Intensity

430: Slowing Down To Speed Up – Stamina Before Intensity

I caught myself making a big mistake in my approach to creating an improvement in my life. While my mistake was in the gym, it’s a mistake I see most people making in the way they approach losing weight or improving their food choices.

This mistake, which I describe in detail in today’s show, is choosing intensity before establishing stamina. While this can absolutely happen in the gym, it’s just as common in our food choices.

Choosing intensity over stamina means choosing the intense approach without first building consistent basics. That might be a Whole 30 right from your standard American diet, or going from indulging too frequently to strict keto – but we jump to the intense approach hoping for faster results without realizing that we haven’t laid a solid foundation for change. Then, we bail. We get frustrated or can’t sustain the extent of the change and we give up.

Our ambition exceeded our preparation. Our motivation is greater than our stamina. We might have the desire to create big changes but we need to slow down, establish a solid foundation and making gradual changes that last instead of massive changes that don’t.

In today’s episode I’m talking about how and where we most often make this mistake and sharing some ideas of how you can establish that stamina for change before dipping your toes in the waters of intensity.

424: Dietary Fat & Blood Lipid Concerns

403: When Hunger & Satiety Signals Break

Today we are talking about how we mess up our body’s natural ability to regulate hunger & satiety, or feelings of fullness.

Our body is actually designed to keep us from gaining too much weight through a series of hormonal signals.

However, we have the ability to impair those hormonal signals by overeating or eating too much sugar, starch & processed foods.

Fortunately for all of us, we can fix our hunger & satiety mechanisms and when we do, fat loss gets so much easier.

Hunger diminishes, satiety returns and cravings fade away.

If you have ever felt like you feel hungry shortly after eating or it takes a lot to feel full, this episode should be really helpful to you!

399: Answers To Most Common Fat Loss Questions

A couple years ago I regularly did “random episodes” answering listener questions & sharing my own personal hacks & strategies.

In today’s episode, I’m doing both. I’m sharing a personal detoxification strategy and answering a bunch of listener questions including:

  • Does eating this particular food take me out of fat burning mode?
  • What’s the best thing I should eat to make sure I stay in fat burning mode?
  • Does exercising after eating sugar prevent fat storage?

I also answer some mindset related questions from listeners who are frustrated that they aren’t taking action to reach their goals. They want to lose weight, they want to eat better & they know what it matters so much, but they’re still failing to take action & make it happen.

I hope you enjoy the episode & if you have questions you’d like me to answer in an upcoming episode, leave them in the comments below!

397: Boundaries, Bright Lines & Setting Standards

On today’s episode we’re talking about boundaries and standards we set for ourselves. These are rules and restrictions but rather reminders that help us make each day as good as it can be. They are reminders that point us in the direction of choices that make us feel our very best.

I shared a new boundary I recently created for myself: I don’t indulge alone. I shared how I worked through my mental resistance to this change and the big ways I think it’s going to improve my life and my mindset.

Lastly, I talk about my honest answer to a great question from a listener. She asked, “How do you balance making progress towards your goals with being at peace with your choices & your body?”
