We have so many beliefs about working out: mainly that we should do the same thing and always be “crushing it”. But this approach to working out doesn’t honor the ebb and flow of women’s bodies. This often leads to sugar cravings from exhaustion and wanting to reward ourselves for slogging to the gym when a nap would have gotten us better results!

To help educate, inspire, and fill in some major missing holes with our female biolo...

    PMS cravings. Sleep disruption caused by perimenopause. The pain and emotional toll of endometriosis. All of these issues can be exasperated by sugar and also the reason we turn to sugar. How can we get out of this downward spiral?

    In today’s episode with Fix Your Period author Nicole Jardim, we will discuss:

  • Sugar’s role in disrupting our hormones (and thus our period, thyroid and perimenopause symptoms)

    Since childhood, sugar has been used to reward us. Whether it was for being good for Dad or Grandma, reading books for Pizza Hut Pizza’s Book It or treating ourselves for losing weight, the “I deserve this” eating pattern is reinforced constantly.

    We will explore the root cause of this emotional eating pattern and how to overcome it. 

    In this episode, we will discuss:

  • The root cause stories that created this pattern in our culture,...

    Not eating the right foods for our unique bodies creates anxiety. This anxiety shows up as a felt sense of anxiety AND also “needing something more” to eat but not knowing what that is or a general feeling of being unsatisfied with what they just ate.

    To help us go into depth and teach us about this sugar-anxiety feedback loop, I’ve invited a holistic psychiatrist and my friend Dr. Ellen Vora onto the show. In this episode, we will...

    Loving sugar or salty carbs isn’t only about taste. The main root cause of craving processed foods is it’s often your body's way of trying to “keep the lights on” from physiological imbalances.

  • What is happening physically that requires us to “feed the (sugar) beast” and how to end the physical addiction of sugar cravings

    Before we can end our dependence on processed foods (whose main ingredient is sugar), we need to understand root causes of how we ended up with a highly addictive food supply.

  • Why we need to understand our stories and the “psychological immune system” they generate in order to change our food and lifestyle habi...

    To end the restrict-binge cycle, we have to address the three root causes of bingeing: deregulated blood sugar, restriction and our story that makes us be all-or-nothing, with food just being one area we approach life like this. 

     

    We’ll discuss:

  • How to stop restricting after a binge using the “3-5” rule
  • How to get out of the all-or-nothing cycle that is the root cause of the bingeing in the first place.

    In today’s episode, we’ll discuss:

  • How Intuitive Eating is a great start yet doesn’t go far enough in helping us feel in control of food

    Many of us monitor ourselves with food. It becomes an obsession; we monitor if we look fat. We monitor if other people are fat or thin. More scrutinization often ends in exhaustion, leading to “I know I shouldn’t but F@$# it”. In other words, more monitoring is counterproductive. 

    But there is hope, and a way to break this cycle. In this episode, we will grapple with the questions of: 

  • How do we get out of this monitoring but n...

    In my approach,  weight-loss as a side-effect of balancing your body with the right foods for you (i.e. there isn’t one way of eating that works for everyone) and addressing the emotional reasons we fall off track by overtime, rewriting our story. 

    This approach unlocks options and freedoms previously unknown to you.  In this Insatiable episode, I’ll share how your food and weight battle can serve as post-traumatic growth, the 6 “f...
