Are you done with dieting, but still want to lose weight? You've come to the right place. In the Done with Dieting podcast, we'll explore all things health related. Specifically food, moving, stress and sleep management, our bodies, and how we think about those things.
Learn what really drives us to overeat or make poor food choices, and how to create healthy habits that make you look and feel good at the same time.
Often, we think that we can only be happy once we lose the weight. But what if we have it all backwards? What if when we learn to accept ourselves as enough, appreciate our bodies or learn how to create happiness, that weight loss becomes the cherry on top?

Using the scale to measure progress towards a weight loss goal seems to be the gold standard that we use. But there are so many factors that go into scale weight - our body’s gravitational pull towards the earth - that we don’t have control over and really mask what we’re using the scale for letting us know how we’re doing towards our goal.
In this episode, you’ll learn other methods that you can use to determine the progress that doesn’t leave you feeling frustrated & that you’re not progressing. Because sometimes, scale is the last thing to move when we want it to.
Is Sugar Addictive?
We see it in the headlines all the time - especially around this time of the year!
That sugar is addictive. Or that sugar is more addictive than cocaine!
And if you ate or drank sugary treats over the holidays, and decided to cut back now that the holidays are over, you may be wondering yourself:
Am I addicted?
In today’s podcast, I’m talking about sugar addiction. Is it real? And what to do if you want to get rid of those intense sugar cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
Tune in to Episode 52 of the Done with Dieting Podcast to learn more about sugar and your body.
The Stages of Grief
Sometimes grief and resentment show up in relation to how we have to do things in order to accomplish our goals.
And the stages of grief that we go through in the process of changing our habits are real. Tune in to learn how we experience the stages of grief when it comes to how we used to do things, and instead become more empowered in our decisions to change our health behaviors.
Evaluate What Worked
Often, when we think about setting New Year’s Resolutions, we’re more than happy to look towards the new & throw away the old. We don’t want to look at the past because all too often, we don’t want to look at our failures.
It’s too painful.
But it’s only too painful if we’re ONLY focused on what we did wrong and have unrealistic expectations for ourselves and how we should be.
That’s why in this podcast episode, I’ll teach you the series of steps that you want to take to objectively evaluate how your year went so that you can learn from it, and set yourself up for success in the future.
The Long Game
We all want fast results. Especially when it comes to weight loss. And as much as we want the weight to be gone yesterday, I suspect what we want more is to never have to go through this lose-the-weight/regain-it cycle ever again.
Yes, we want to lose weight quickly, but we also want permanent weight loss. We don’t want to have to deal with this problem over and over and over again.
In a time where 30 day Jump Starts, 8-week Challenges, and 13-week detoxes are everywhere, the thought of spending a year focused on one’s weight seems unheard of.
Yet, clearly fast weight loss doesn’t work because if it did, we wouldn’t have the statistic that 97% of folks who lose weight regain it in 3-5 years.
Think about if we were to dedicate a year to learning to speak a language, or play a musical instrument - spending a year focused on one goal like that could yield fantastic results.
I first learned about a Year of Health last year, and have become more and more fascinated with the concept since then.
Starting a Side-Gig with Sindy Warren
We hear all the time how Microsoft and Apple were started in a garage. All successful companies start with an idea, and then seemingly overnight the idea grows into a successful business.
There’s no doubt that becoming your own boss takes a lot of work. And that the road to success is paved with stories of defeat, disappointment, and failure - which is why I loved talking to Sindy Warren about how she helps budding entrepreneurs start businesses - whether they’re just part-time hustles or ideas that allow women to retire their partners.
Whether we’re talking about business or weight loss, there are SO MANY parallels when it comes to the mental game and achieving success in these two different areas.
Sindy is such a great coach & person to learn from if you’re someone who has an idea for starting a business because she has the business acumen to know what’s needed to get it done while also having your legal bases covered too.
About Sindy Warren: Sindy Warren is a life and business coach helping people get real results in their businesses and their lives. She is a Stanford Law School lawyer and yoga teacher who has been a serial side gigger for the past two decades. Sindy splits her time between Shaker Heights, Ohio, and Hilton Head, South Carolina with her husband and daughter.
Such a great podcast.
You need to listen to this!!
Elizabeth presents the information in such a great understandable way. Since listening I definitely feel more confident in my ability to start eating better & have changed the way that I think about so many of the topics. The menopause episode is fantastic!
This podcast is really great for anyone who is over dieting, snd the myths that we’ve been told for years. Elizabeth clears up so much misinformation & I feel like she’s talking directly to me!
