    42. Down 40 pounds & counting: How Antionette made the lifestyle change she never thought was possible

    On todays episode of Diet Starts Never, I am introducing you to one of my long term clients, Antionette.

    Over the last 3 years, Antoinette lost 40 pounds, started going to the gym, healed her relationship with food and was able to maintain a new lifestyle all while enjoying a busy social life and traveling frequently!

    I asked her to come on this podcast episode because she has a unique perspective towards weight loss. She has been on the other side where she used to struggle and think she was never going to change. She has made it out stronger and better than ever!

    If you are struggling with weight loss, listen to Antionettes story because I think she can really motivate you to look at the bigger picture and think long term.

    40. You're not supposed to feel bloated all of the time & how to fix it

    40. You're not supposed to feel bloated all of the time & how to fix it

    Being bloated is one of the most common issues among Americans and guess what? It is NOT normal to feel bloated all of the time.

    Not only is bloat a sign of negative biofeedback (your body communicating with you), but whatever is causing the bloat can cause long term issues as well.

    Other common digestive issues, such as constipation and diarrhea, are related to bloat and also should not be something happening to you on the regular.

    Now let's take your fat loss goals into consideration: your body may NOT lose fat if its digestion is off because that means your body is not at prime health.

    In todays episode we’re going to cover:


    The role of the digestive system and how to optimize your own digestion


    How bowel movements play a role in digestion and bloat


    Common causes of bloating that you may be missing


    Interventions for improving digestion and bloating
