Ever had a puzzle you couldn't solve? That was my story with overeating. Despite being highly educated, overeating and weight gain seemed to be out of my control. A few months ago, a book, a podcast and a continuous glucose monitor challenged everything I thought I knew about dieting and weight loss. I learned that managing my insulin was a far more important metric than managing calories. Join me for my story and for a front seat to fascinating research and theories that go beyond the frustrating - and ineffective - conventional dieting wisdom of eat less, move more.

    You've lost weight, great.  Now what?  Maintenance is a dance.  It is a dance of trying new things, keeping what works and being realistic about what doesn't work.

    The Invitation

    The Invitation

    How do we know when life is sending us an invitation to evolve?  It finds us exactly where we are, it contains the potential to disrupt our life and those around us, and it does not give up.

    Where'd You Go, Wendy?

    Where'd You Go, Wendy?

    The last time you heard from me, it was on a ski trip in the Alps.....then nothing for six months.  Curious about where I've been?  I've done what I set out to do - stop overeating - and lost 60 pounds.  I always thought losing weight would be THE happy ending.  Turns out, it's just the beginning.

    Episode 60: Fluency

    Episode 60: Fluency

    While I was off skiing last week, I kept thinking about the word fluency.  Is it just limited to language?  What is fluency?  Why is it important?  What does it have to do with changing our eating habits?
