The M-POWERED Podcast: Food freedom, nutrition basics, women empowerment, healthy habits, fitness hacks, Christian women, mental health

Learn to intuitively eat // Ditch the diets // Prioritize God & your mental health Are you tired of trying to balance every aspect of your life: physical health, nutrition, mental health, relationships, family, faith, your career and more? Do you feel like you’re on a constant journey of trying to better yourself and reach your goals but feel like you’re getting nowhere? The harder you try, the more discouraged you become? I feel you girl, and you are NOT alone! In this podcast, you have permission to come as you are and realize that you are not alone in this seemingly uphill battle. This is a safe space to be vulnerable, open, and imperfect. In this podcast, I open up about my struggle with perfectionism, especially when it comes to fitness, nutrition, mental health, my career and self-development. I also talk to industry experts, athletes, business owners, coaches, therapists, fellow-podcasters, Jesus-followers, everyday people and more who share their story and journey on becoming their best selves. If you’re ready to finally reach your goals, say yes to yourself, stop telling yourself “I’ll try again on Monday”, let go of the guilt, and be perfectly imperfect, then this is the podcast for you. Hey my friend, I’m Miranda Lee. I am a recovering perfectionist, Jesus-lover, total foodie, wife, and dog-mom. I decided to use my gift of gab, and past struggles (binge-eating disorder, orthorexia, anxiety disorder, OCD, and a tic disorder), to start a podcast and empower others. I am a faith-based health and confidence coach, who helps others find confidence, fall in love with themselves, reach food freedom, and learn how to properly nourish their mind, body and soul. I have my Bachelors in Applied Health Science, my Masters in Business and I am a certified personal trainer through the National Association of Science and Medicine. Progress doesn‘t happen overnight. It takes time, consistency, grace and faith. Happiness isn‘t dependent on your weight or pant-size. You are the daughter of the King! I want to help you put your identity in Him and take small and consistent steps to be 1% better every day. Once you find food freedom, learn to love yourself no matter what, and fully surrender to God, you will feel the most free you‘ve every felt! Remember, you are not in this alone. Whatever you are struggling with, I will be with you every step of the way. We shouldn’t be striving for perfection, but choosing happiness. The pressure to be perfect is strong, but He is stronger.
