    My thoughts on GLP-1 Agonists (think Ozempic)

    My thoughts on GLP-1 Agonists (think Ozempic)

    By now, many of you have likely heard about the recent weight loss success stories emerging from Hollywood. Celebrities are stepping onto the red carpet looking noticeably slimmer, and social media is abuzz with mentions of semaglutide/GLP-1 agonists, such as Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro, and Zepbound.
    Amid the buzz, there’s also been a wave of criticism from the Functional Health community, arguing that relying on medication for weight loss is a shortcut and that individuals should put in the effort through traditional methods. While the sentiment behind this perspective is understandable, it often overlooks the complex realities that many people face in their health journeys and comes across as dismissive.
    On this episode of the HBS podcast, Tara explains that GLP-1 agonists are NOT medications; they are natural peptides - that could make a world of difference for those struggling with their health.
    Join Tara as she explores the science behind GLP-1 agonists, their potential benefits, and starts a broader conversation beyond weight loss. 
     

    Key Takeaways from this episode: Natural peptides like GLP one Agonists are not just about weight loss - they have a wide range of potential health benefits.
           Functional medicine practitioners should consider the potential of natural peptides to address conditions that conventional medications may not effectively treat.
          Prioritizing patient well-being over rigid beliefs can lead to more effective and holistic healthcare solutions.

    89: An interview with my trainer: Meaghan Janisse - Why eating MORE is the key to getting the body (and muscle) you desire.

    89: An interview with my trainer: Meaghan Janisse - Why eating MORE is the key to getting the body (and muscle) you desire.

    In this episode, we're joined by my own personal health coach and trainer Meaghan Janisse, who shares her incredible journey from fitness skeptic to a powerhouse in the world of weightlifting and macro-based dieting.
    Together we discuss: 
    Reverse Dieting and Muscle Gain: Meaghan Janisse's personal journey from at-home workouts to weightlifting at the gym highlights the importance of working with a coach for personalized feedback and accelerated results. The concept of reverse dieting is explained as gradually increasing food intake to support metabolic health and prevent muscle loss, challenging traditional dieting.
     
    The Role of Muscle in Fat Loss: Building muscle is crucial for sustained fat loss and a toned physique, especially for midlife premenopausal women due to anabolic resistance. Working out is not just about burning calories but also about building muscle, which leads to burning more calories at rest. Consistency, patience, and proper nutrition are key for sustainable transformation and long-term health.
     
    Nutrition’s Role in Muscle Gain and Fat Loss: Meaghan highlights the significance of carbs for muscle building and using proper nutrition to stimulate muscle growth. Meaghan advises against training fasted, emphasizing the need for fuel before workouts. A slow and steady approach to the reverse/cut process is crucial for lasting fat loss and muscle gain, challenging the misconceptions about dieting and exercise.
     
    Finding Long-Term Success: The importance of consistency, patience, and a gradual approach to achieving lasting transformation is underlined.


     
    Meaghan Janisse Meaghan Janisse is an online women’s fitness coach dedicated to helping women break free from the lies of diet culture by educating them about muscle gain from eating MORE and working out SMARTER, not harder. She has helped hundreds of women around the world of all different ages achieve jaw-dropping, and most importantly, SUSTAINABLE results by implementing proper weightlifting and reverse dieting.

    Your HRT questions answered!

    Your HRT questions answered!

    After hosting an Ask Me Anything regarding Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) on Instagram, Tara's compiled your questions together and sits down on this episode of the HBS podcast to answer them one by one. 


    Here are some of the questions we received:
    I'm starting on Estrogen but my doctor has said that I don't need progesterone to counter it, is that true? I currently have a Mirena for lighter flowing cramps, can I take HRT alongside? Is BHRT better than HRT? Is there a maximum dose for progesterone? Does it matter which progesterone HRT is used, oral pills or vaginal compounded cream? Will I gain weight with estrogen? A testosterone pellets safe? If supplementing with testosterone, do you need also supplement EMP as well? My mom had breast cancer, and I am terrified to go on HRT; should I worry? What are your thoughts on Vitex?
