The American Thyroid Association estimates that more than 27 million American’s have thyroid disease but more than half of them have no idea!

Women are 5-8 times likely than men to develop a thyroid condition too and risk increases as we go through perimenopause and the years that follow!

Why does this matter?

We have had a LOT of popularity and questions about the THYROID. So I covered a LOT:

- Symptoms of low thyroid functio...

So first before you all freak out - YES we want to eat 80% whole foods and 20% highly processed/fun foods.

The type of food you eat will absolutely influence your inflammation levels and provide you with vitamins and minerals that you need.

HOWEVER - we talk to a lot of women who say they eat “clean” and are stuck.

They aren’t seeing results so obviously this is something we need to cover.

So in this episode I unpack the 8 thin...

If you have been listening for any amount of time many of you know that you are probably not eating enough.

Maintenance is the place where your body stays relatively stable AND feels good.

If you have low energy levels, have hormonal symptoms, are struggling to get results in the gym then your metabolism has slowed down and your body has adapted to the low calories, crazy exercise, lack of sleep etc.

I get these questions a lot:

- How many calories do I need to lose weight?

- How long do I drop my calories for?

- What happens if I plateau?

- How many fat loss cycles do I need?

And those are all great questions but the answer to all of them is “it depends”

In this episode I go into all those questions and give some background information to give you a better understanding of everything!

Menopause needs to be taken more seriously. Period.

I see so many women that get their concerns brushed off as “no big deal” just because they don’t feel like themselves and want to lose weight.

And they get told the same advice over and over despite it not working: “eat less move more”

And quite frankly - all of that pisses me off.

If it is a big deal to them then it should be a big deal to you.

This is what is leaving women ...

I swear this is like a switch – we can pinpoint the exact moment this happens with a client and it is like all of a sudden they start achieving everything and the results start coming!

And it all has to do with mindset - which I am sure a lot of you are rolling your eyes BUT this podcast I did with Coach Beth will make you so much more aware of struggles that are keeping you from seeing results and how to get past them!
