    Episode 40: From Anorexia to Commonwealth Powerlifting Champ (all on a vegan diet) with Sophia Ellis

    Episode 40: From Anorexia to Commonwealth Powerlifting Champ (all on a vegan diet) with Sophia Ellis

    What a journey Sophia has had already. From struggling with eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia, being admitted to hospital to finding herself and becoming Commonwealth and European Powerlifting champ, and record holder.



    This girl is strong! Inside and out. 



    Not only can she lift heavy, but she has also been able to share her story and help others. This is what the podcast is all about. 



    As well as some myth-busting. I would like to try and see someone tell Sophia that you can't grow muscle on a vegan diet, because she is living proof that you can, and then some.



    We also cover gym confidence and the importance of asking for help.


    This is the kind of podcast that should get you motivated to resistance train but also to love yourself a little more.



    I hope you enjoy it!!

    Episode 39; A Live Panel Recording w/ Myself, Tori & Sophia

    Episode 39; A Live Panel Recording w/ Myself, Tori & Sophia

    Recently I was lucky enough to be invited to be on a plant-based health and fitness panel with Sophia, a Commonwealth Powerlifting Champ, Tori, a bikini figure competitor and host by Saskia from The Green Grill.

    We speak about Protein, what we all eat in a day and pretty much anything else the live audience asked us. These questions included things like Iron, soy, more protein and more.

    This episode is a lot more casual and fun and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

    You can find the other panellists at @toriree , @sophiastrenght, @thegreengrill & @saskia_rabbit

    Episode 38 - How to Achieve Your 2020 Goals w/ Holly Barber

    Episode 38 - How to Achieve Your 2020 Goals w/ Holly Barber

    Holly and I first met at an event in London and we both knew immediately that we were on the same page with nutrition, exercise and veganism (the page that EVERYONE should be one)

    We decided to do this podcast a little differently, by interviewing each other in a "you go, I go" manner.

    We alternated between topics that we thought were worthy of a fun discussion and I think created a very entertaining and insightful episode.

    We cover, 

    - How to do Veganuary Right

    - Tips on tackling your New Years Resolutions 

    - How to choose a good coach or PT

    - How to tackle social media's issues 

    - and more..



    Have a listen and let us know what you think (there will definitely be a round two)

    Episode 37; Womans Hormonal Health & PCOS with Dr Dylan Culter, Phd

    Episode 37; Womans Hormonal Health & PCOS with Dr Dylan Culter, Phd

    Up to 20% of woman have PCOS, that number is staggering!

    Although I am pretty clued up on PCOS & work with plenty of women that have this diagnoses I thought it would be even better to hear from an expert and give you some guidelines to lessen the symptoms and thrive. Not only that but I think it is important to discuss woman's hormonal health and how this can affect lifestyle outcomes. 



    We discuss PCOS in-depth, the different types and how Dr Dylan would go about treatment. We also speak about:

    - PCOS & Insulin Resistance  

    - The Contraceptive Pill and Hormonal Health

    - Endometriosis

    - Menopause

    - The Menstrual Cycle



    Dr Dylan Culter did her PHD on PCOS so she knows her stuff. 



    Have a listen and tell us what you think!

    Episode 36: From Going Veggie In Prison To A Life Of Compassion w/ Dom Thompson

    I first met Dom at an event in London, he was on a health and fitness panel I was hosting, then he also spoke a keynote speaker. 

    His talk would have turned me vegan if I wasn't already,

    His story is one like no other. 

    Started with a life of crime, spent a few years in prison and since then turned his life around.

    Have a listen to this truly inspirational and humble guy than is influencing people in the right direction.

    Episode 35; Losing Weight On A Plant Based Diet IS Easier; A Scientfic Review w/ Rami Najjar

    Episode 35; Losing Weight On A Plant Based Diet IS Easier; A Scientfic Review w/ Rami Najjar

    We've all heard that calories matter, and that for weight loss to occur we need to find a way to be in a calorie deficit.

    But what if some ways of eating made it easier for this to happen?

    This exactly what Rami, a PhD candidate pondered.

    And it was his scientific review article that got my attention when he looked at the other benefits of the plant-based diet that makes it easier for someone to lose weight. 

    These include (1) reduced caloric density, (2) improved gut microbiota symbiosis, (3) increased insulin sensitivity, (4) reduced TMAO, (5) activation of  PPARs, and (6) over-expression of mitochondrial uncoupling proteins. Collectively, these factors improve satiety and increase energy expenditure leading to reduced body weight.

    Don't worry, we go over what all that means in the podcast. 

    Here is a link to his review https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31717463/ once you have had a listen.

    And don't forget to give him a follow on Instagram @plantbased_climber
