    EFR 472: Repairing Food Relationships and Eating Disorder Recovery with Phoebe Davis

    EFR 472: Repairing Food Relationships and Eating Disorder Recovery with Phoebe Davis

    Like most former overweight kids, Phoebe Davis was initially motivated to lose weight for the sake of looking better; but along the way in her fitness journey, Phoebe discovered her calling to combine her passion for health and wellness with her growing career as a social media marketer.
    Her journey didn’t end after she successfully lost all that excess weight. Phoebe remembers how she became terrified of gaining back the fat that she had worked so hard to burn off. For some time, she suffered through self-imposed extreme diet restrictions that inevitably led to binging episodes.
    She explains how she was able to change her unhealthy relationship with food, to stop obsessing over macros, and to embrace moderation and a lifestyle where she could allow herself to indulge in her favorite foods while maintaining her health and fitness.

    EFR 471: The Dangers of Mineral Deficiency and How to Improve Nutrient Absorption in the Body with Barton Scott

    EFR 471: The Dangers of Mineral Deficiency and How to Improve Nutrient Absorption in the Body with Barton Scott

    Barton Scott is a chemical engineer and nutritionist. In 2025, he founded Upgraded Formulas, a company offering a line of supplements “that are 100% bioavailable and are absorbed better by the body than any other brand on the market today.”
    Our bodies, Barton claims, only “absorb about 25% or less” of most supplements on the market.
     
    This fact, he says, is less telling of what is and isn’t in most of today’s supplements and more of a reflection of how inefficient our bodies are at absorbing the nutrients in them.
     
    In fact, this inefficiency is only going to get worse for many as certain trends of modern living continue to wreak havoc on their gut health. From bad diets to excess drinking to living stressful lives, a variety of factors that too many people today are familiar with contribute to gut dysfunction.
     
    “Because of that,” continues Barton, “I knew that trying to heal the gut was not going to be enough.”
     
    Listen in as Barton reflects on the personal experiences which would lead to the founding of Upgraded Formulas. He also shares some hard-to-swallow pills regarding mineral deficiency and what we all need to focus on to fill common nutrient gaps.

    EFR 470: Where Health Meets Lifestyle - Growing Your Personal and Professional Self Through Fitness with Samantha Wallace

    Samantha Wallace is a health and fitness coach who first broke into the industry as a competitor in the NPC bikini division at the age of 19. For a few years following her first show, she had a successful amateur career that saw her winning two overall titles in the bikini division with six first place finishes.
    Her literal life-altering turning point came in the middle of her bodybuilding career when she was hospitalized and underwent an emergency appendectomy, uterine bowl separation, and removal of endometrial tissue with a diagnosis of endometriosis. She survived by a miracle, and was inspired to serve as a guide to others who, just like herself, lived with chronic health issues.
    After her harrowing experience, Sam became a certified personal trainer, corrective rehabilitation specialist, and nutrition certified with ISSA and is currently expanding her certifications and knowledge with NASM and Precision Nutrition Level 1.
    Today, Sam specializes in helping men and women transform their lifestyles through the Sam Wallace Fit Method, a hybrid training model that focuses on meeting you where you are at right now, allowing you to seamlessly integrate fitness into your life and honor yourself daily through movement and mindfulness.
    Listen in as Samantha shares how she has been able to develop a health and fitness brand based on authenticity, explaining how the power of organic marketing allows coaches to attract clients without having to “sell” them on their services.

    Ben Smith, fellow Army veteran and coach at the legendary Deuce Gym in Los Angeles, encourages anyone going through a life-changing transition period—service members in particular—to actively seek guidance, whether through workshops, support groups, or connecting with a mentor who has been in their shoes and successfully crossed the bridge.
    In today’s conversation, Ben sheds some light on his mental health struggles before and after his time in the military, including an eating disorder that plagued his days in the Army due to an overwhelming feeling that he had no control over his own life. He also shares two moments in particular when he was gripped by thoughts of suicide and what allowed him to soldier on down a path of healing.
    Tune in to learn some of Ben's favorite practices for improving your own mental health today and how to live an others-centered life.

One of the BEST podcasts out there.

This podcast is a 360 on health, fitness, relationships, entrepreneurship and reaching your maximum potential in all those areas and more. Chase explores and seeks to better understand why we do the things we do via human psyche. Every guest I’ve listened to so far has been extraordinary. Chase’s questions and commentary with guests is well thought out.

A memorable recent episode is #389 on the Healing Power of Human Interaction.

Never thought that my lack of motivation or energy at times could be due to lack of consistent positive human interaction. No matter how well I ate or exercised, you wonder why you feel “off”, angry or just a little sad. I never even considered it bc im not super social and very much an introvert so I need very very little of it. This became a conscious thought after listening to the the ep. Being proactive with this and incorporating social activities every so often like a vitamin is a necessity.

My best friend who is away at pharmacy school was telling me how much she missed social interaction and having a hard time having some since all her classes are virtual. She’s fairly social and this was affecting her happiness and mental health quite a bit. We both severely underestimated the healing power positive social interactions, a hug, etc have.
