    What's the Deal With Mental Hunger? Reasons You Can't Stop Thinking About Food and What to do About it

    What's the Deal With Mental Hunger? Reasons You Can't Stop Thinking About Food and What to do About it

    Today’s podcast topic is about mental hunger, which in its simplest form is the concept of constantly thinking about food.
    This experience is something that regularly comes up for people who are going through recovery from disordered eating, an eating disorder, or hypothalamic amenorrhea as well as those who've done restrictive diets in the past.
    In this episode I want to explain what mental hunger actually is, and why you can't stop thinking about food on a physiological level, how to respond to these cues, and mindset shifts to reduce the fear around eating if you're experiencing mental hunger.
    In this episode you’ll learn:
    What mental hunger is and how it differs from physical hunger Different scenarios you may not realise are actually mental hunger, but really are Why mental hunger happens on a physiological level Does mental hunger disappear during recovery and if so how long does it take? Mindset shifts to help you cope if you’re experiencing these symptoms ❤️ If you enjoyed this episode please leave a 5⭐️ review and share a screenshot on Instagram by tagging myself @sarahlizking and I'll be sure to reshare.

    The Ups and Downs of Recovering from Hypothalamic Amenorrhea with Lucy McConnell

    Today I’m joined by Lucy McConnell, a dietitian in the making, wine lover and decadent cheese board creator with a passion for healthy living.
    Her love for working out and eating well started innocently like it does for many women, but over time spiralled to a place where her body no longer felt safe and she lost her period not once, but twice. I was lucky enough to work with Lucy to help her recover period, but more than that improve her relationship with her body and food.
    Today’s interview is a deep dive into her journey including:
    Her passion for sport and fitness from a young age up until now When she realised her healthy lifestyle wasn’t so healthy The first time she heard about hypothalamic amenorrhea What recovery was like the first time around The missing pieces of recovery and why her relapse happened Getting her period back for good and her biggest learnings through that process Having Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and working in the fitness industry Adjusting to a new normal in terms of food, training, and lifestyle to keep her cycle for good You can follow Lucy's adventures and connect with her online through her social media channels linked below.

    Should You Date During Recovery From an Eating Disorder?

    Should You Date During Recovery From an Eating Disorder?

    Today’s podcast is less science, and more questions of the heart as I answer the question “Should you date during recovery?”
    I think this applies to any kind of recovery from a mental health issue such as an eating disorder, depression, anxiety, or a physical health issue like hypothalamic amenorrhea or even a chronic condition like maybe chronic pain or something along those lines.
    However, for the purposes of this podcast I’m going to be talking about my experience of dating and how that played into recovery and point out some really key questions you can ask yourself to know if you’re ready or if you are currently in a relationship how to broach the topic with your partner if they don’t know you’re struggling.
    Please remember there is no right or wrong answer to this. The only person who knows you best is you!
    In this episode I discuss:
    Dating from a healthy headspace instead of trying to fill a void Creating boundaries - the basic rights that determine what we will and won't put up with in relationships How to effectively communicate your needs in relationships and dating so your recovery doesn't take a back seat Dealing with rejection How to be authentically yourself when dating Accepting body changes, owning your worth, and realising you have so much more to offer Sticking with recovery through all the ups and downs of life and dating ❤️ If you enjoyed this episode please leave a 5⭐️ review and share a screenshot on Instagram by tagging myself @sarahlizking and I'll be sure to reshare.

    The Art and Science of Coaching with Stan Dutton from Better Coaching

    The Art and Science of Coaching with Stan Dutton from Better Coaching

    Today I’m joined by Stan Dutton, an unapologetic dog dad, frozen pizza connoisseur, and life-long learner with over 10 years of experience in the fitness industry.
    He’s built multiple businesses, at 22 he was the owner of a 2,000 square foot training facility valued at over $1,000,000 within just 4 years - after closing his gym, he built a six-figure online coaching business and began helping hundreds of coaches increase their earnings by 1400% every month on a digital coaching platform.
    Stan got tired of seeing the best salespeople make the most money through unethical marketing, “Rapid fat loss programs” and crash diets… And he’s working tirelessly to create a world in which coaches gain the knowledge that they should have learned on day one from their certifications - how to inspire meaningful change using the art and science of coaching.
    Despite nearly dropping out of high school, he found success in the industry by surrounding himself with the best in the world - and constantly learning. His mission to create Better Coaches starts with his podcast, Better Coaching where he interviews experts across a diverse range of subjects - movement, psychology, nutrition, and business.
    In this episode of Holistic Health Radio I’m excited to chat to Stan about:
    His journey from starting out in the fitness industry to where he is now What is coaching and how clients benefit from it over and above just getting an exercise or diet plan What areas of science does coaching pull from? And what is the art to it? Why a holistic approach is so important when working with clients and what that looks in real life Getting unstuck if you’re feeling unmotivated or overwhelmed in your fitness journey The anti-diet versus diet battle going on in the fitness community and how to help people who may have weight loss, weight gain or weight neutral goals for their health How to find a good coach and how to become a better coach if you are one Ways to build a successful coaching business You can find out more about Stan Dutton, his services and listen to his podcast Better Coaching via the links below!

    Should You Go "All In" To Recover Your Period From Hypothalamic Amenorrhea

    Today’s podcast is about a slightly controversial topic that I get asked about ALL the time in terms of recovery from hypothalamic amenorrhea and getting your period back. And that’s whether or not to go “all in”.
    If you've been wondering yourself if this is the right option for you then listen in.
    In this episode I discuss:
    What “all in” really means when it comes to recovering your period What an “all in” recovery plan looks like in terms of food intake (calories, carbs, food frequency), exercise, and rest Reasons why you might choose to go “all in” versus a slower approach to recovering your period Questions to ask yourself to decide what approach to hypothalamic amenorrhea recovery is best for you  Where to go for extra help and support to help your recovery process ❤️ If you enjoyed this episode please leave a 5⭐️ review and share a screenshot on Instagram by tagging myself @sarahlizking and I'll be sure to reshare.
