    Carnivore Steak and Butter Gal: Restored Metabolism & 25 lbs Weight Loss

    Carnivore Steak and Butter Gal: Restored Metabolism & 25 lbs Weight Loss

    This episode is with the Steak & Butter Gal, Bella Ma! We talk all abut her journey from being vegan for 6 years to lose weight, to going carnivore, restoring her metabolism and getting 25 lbs effortless weight loss. It's a fun episode and I really enjoyed having Bella on the show!!
    Steak and Butter Gal, aka Bella, is a classically trained concert pianist and violinist who is passionate about advocating an animal-based diet for optimal health. Most recently, she graduated from The Juilliard School’s Graduate Program with a Master of Music Degree (MM), specializing in violin and piano performance. Having been active in the educational and competitive spheres of performance since the age of five, she has experienced the correlation between nutrition and cognitive function firsthand. Sustaining a demanding performance schedule requires utmost mental clarity, unwavering focus, steadfast emotional reserve, and resilience to high stress situations. As such, Bella believes that diet plays a pivotal role in fortifying the considerable physiological and psychological faculties necessary for her rigorous lifestyle. Today, she continues to spread the power of music both online and in person through performances and teaching and combines that with the knowledge and advocacy of the Carnivore diet.

    My Recovery from Body Dysmorphia

    My Recovery from Body Dysmorphia

    "Body dysmorphic disorder is a mental health disorder in which you can't stop thinking about one or more perceived defects or flaws in your appearance — a flaw that appears minor or can't be seen by others. But you may feel so embarrassed, ashamed and anxious that you may avoid many social situations.  
    When you have body dysmorphic disorder, you intensely focus on your appearance and body image, repeatedly checking the mirror, grooming or seeking reassurance, sometimes for many hours each day. Your perceived flaw and the repetitive behaviors cause you significant distress, and impact your ability to function in your daily life.
    You may seek out numerous cosmetic procedures to try to "fix" your perceived flaw. Afterward, you may feel temporary satisfaction or a reduction in your distress, but often the anxiety returns and you may resume searching for other ways to fix your perceived flaw.
    Treatment of body dysmorphic disorder may include cognitive behavioral therapy and medication.
    Symptoms Signs and symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder include:
    Being extremely preoccupied with a perceived flaw in appearance that to others can't be seen or appears minor Strong belief that you have a defect in your appearance that makes you ugly or deformed Belief that others take special notice of your appearance in a negative way or mock you Engaging in behaviors aimed at fixing or hiding the perceived flaw that are difficult to resist or control, such as frequently checking the mirror, grooming or skin picking Attempting to hide perceived flaws with styling, makeup or clothes Constantly comparing your appearance with others Frequently seeking reassurance about your appearance from others Having perfectionist tendencies Seeking cosmetic procedures with little satisfaction Avoiding social situations Preoccupation with your appearance and excessive thoughts and repetitive behaviors can be unwanted, difficult to control and so time-consuming that they can cause major distress or problems in your social life, work, school or other areas of functioning.
    You may excessively focus over one or more parts of your body. The feature that you focus on may change over time. The most common features people tend to fixate about include:
    Face, such as nose, complexion, wrinkles, acne and other blemishes Hair, such as appearance, thinning and baldness Skin and vein appearance Breast size Muscle size and tone Genitalia A preoccupation with your body build being too small or not muscular enough (muscle dysmorphia) occurs almost exclusively in males.
    Insight about body dysmorphic disorder varies. You may recognize that your beliefs about your perceived flaws may be excessive or not be true, or think that they probably are true, or be absolutely convinced that they're true. The more convinced you are of your beliefs, the more distress and disruption you may experience in your life.
    When to see a doctor Shame and embarrassment about your appearance may keep you from seeking treatment for body dysmorphic disorder. But if you have any signs or symptoms, see your primary care provider or a mental health professional.
    Body dysmorphic disorder usually doesn't get better on its own. If left untreated, it may get worse over time, leading to anxiety, extensive medical bills, severe depression, and even suicidal thoughts and behavior."
