    • Health & Fitness

If learning about the pro-metabolic approach to food and wellness has left you feeling overwhelmed, you are not alone.  As this lifestyle has grown in popularity, we have seen a number of misconceptions emerge about what the pro-metabolic approach actually is.  In this episode, we break down some of the most common missteps we see and offer an alternative point of view that emphasizes individual self-experimentation and reconnecting with your body.  We want to help you see how simple and beautiful your metabolic healing journey can be!

Join us as we discuss the following:


Why the pro-metabolic approach is not black and white
What factors might draw us to hard and fast rules around food
Taking radical responsibility for your unique health journey
The problem with taking health advice too far and ignoring your individual physiology
Weight when switching to a metabolically supportive way of eating: when you might need to gain, when you might need to lose, and how to know if you’re gaining too much too quickly
The surprising truth about pursuing expansion in the body over restriction
Checking our perception of what a woman’s body “should” look like
Practical tips to implement if you feel you are gaining weight too quickly
Why it’s important to use your own discernment when learning from “experts”
Giving yourself grace to unlearn, relearn, and make mistakes in your healing journey
Moving beyond physical root cause and examining emotional and spiritual influences
