Just recently found this podcast and have been listening non-stop! Between the easy-to-incorporate lifestyle changes & the practical advice , I’m enjoying each and every episode. Hopefully there are more episodes in the works??
I found this podcast after deciding to attempt to change my mindset about weight loss and “dieting,” as I had (have) some stubborn pounds to shed. Between November and December 2023, I listened to all the podcasts since the beginning. I think the most important message is that I am not dieting, I am just changing my sustainable lifestyle.
The worst I can say about it is the frequency of new episodes - I need more!
Testimonial - I continued my losing trend through Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year - even with an out of town trip and cookies!
It was time to cut the Fat!
I happened upon this podcast because I loved the name and I was starting a journey that I was serious about! I loved telling people about this podcast mainly because I was admitting to myself that I was “cutting the fat” with your help!!! What an inspiration you were to me while I was going through this “fat” time! I walked almost every single day, four miles and listened to your Cut The Fat episodes! I learned so much and did cut those extra 20 lbs that I had gained!!!
