Why getting uncomfortable is the catalyst for change - Interview With Lisa Carpenter

In this episode, I interview Nutritional Ninja Lisa Carpenter. We chat about: Why your body image issues don't go away even when you have achieved the 'perfect' figure. What accepting who you are really means (and does not mean) and the problem around thinking "I'll be happy when...".  A unique way of managing your emotional eating. What it means to be conscious when you are making decisions and why this is a key component to having a good relationship with food. Why being uncomfortable is critical to ditching the diet mentality. How to stop focusing on the negative and what you don't have, in order to improve your ability to maintain change. And so much more great content!

Own Your Story - Guest, Camille DePutter

In this episode, I discuss a super important topic with one of my boxing friends - writer, coach, storyteller, lover of language and fighter - Camille DePutter, on the importance of owning your story.

The importance of owning your story as it relates to being your authentic self and having self-worth. Where we can find our own stories and why they don't need to be profound in order to share them. Why it's so important not to tuck away pieces of your personality, especially to please those around you. What to do if you fear other people's judgements by owning your story. Why your stories don't necessarily define you. How to receive other people's stories to help them overcome shame. How to start to share your story.

Guest, Krista Scott-Dixon: The Solution Is Your Problem

In this episode, I interview one of my idols - blogger, author, behaviour change & disordered eating expert, and provider of no-bullshit education in fitness and health for women - Krista Scott-Dixon, on why the solution is your problem. We talk about: Krista's unconventional story of disordered eating and how she went from being the girl with glasses who was last in gym class to a leader in fitness and nutrition training. Why the demands on women and need to self-regulate are causing more women to develop disordered eating later in life. How you can tell if your 'healthy' habits are starting to become destructive and whether you are addicted to self-help. Why "the solution is your problem" and why it's so hard to give up control. Why "coming to terms with your body is a form of ninja-crapping" and doesn't mean that you accept yourself. How our cravings for approval, don't feed us. Two things you can do right now to accept your body (hint: these were things that I had no even thought of!). And details on the upcoming Precision Nutrition Level 2 Coaching Certification and how it will help coaches make revolutionary changes in other people's lives.
