Feel Better. Live Free. with Ruth Soukup is the revolutionary health & wellness podcast brought to you by Thinlicious®, created to help midlife women create FREEDOM in our lives through healing our bodies from the inside out, while questioning the outdated mainstream narratives surrounding health and weight loss that haven't worked.

Our mission is to help you find FREEDOM. The freedom to look and feel your best. The freedom to NOT be controlled by food addictions ever again. And the freedom to confidently pursue all your big goals and dreams because your health and weight issues are no longer holding you back.

Each week we’ll talk openly and honestly about what it means to live your best life as a woman in your 40’s, 50’s, and beyond, talking openly and honestly about the highs and lows of weight loss, wellness, cultivating a healthy mindset, and pretty much everything in between.

It’s a place where you'll discover actionable strategies for losing weight and getting healthy, unconventional health breakthroughs that no one else is talking about, and the powerful mindset shifts you’ll need to find lifelong wellness and true happiness (with a whole lot of tough love along the way.)

Basically, this is the podcast to listen to if you're looking for answers to these type of questions:

-Why is it so hard for women over 40 to lose weight?
-How can I improve my mindset and get healthy for life?
-What supplements should I be taking?
-How can I improve my immune system?
-How do I overcome resistance and finally get motivated?
-Why am I so tired all the time?
-What's the healthiest way to lose weight?
-Should I go on Ozempic?
-What does it mean to be metabolically flexible?
-How does stress affect weight loss?
-What is gut health, and why does it matter?
-Could I have a thyroid issue?
-What can you eat to reduce inflammation?
-What are the biggest health mistakes to avoid?
-How can you lose weight without dieting?

    If Only I Had Known: All the Things I Wish I Could Go Back and Tell Myself As I Was Starting My Weight Loss Journey

    Do you ever wish you could travel back in time and give yourself a little advice?I do, especially when I think about how much time and energy I wasted doing all the wrong things, or about how many mistakes I made, and how much frustration I could have avoided, had I only known THEN what I know now.And while there's a part of me that understands that sometimes we just need to learn things the hard way, I also think there's something incredibly valuable about sharing those lessons, those mistak...

    Shocking Secrets the Food Industry Doesn't Want You to Know

    You are what you eat.It's one of those phrases we've all heard said a million times, and yet how often do we really think about what that actually means, especially when reaching for a bag of potato chips or that Ben & Jerry's hidden deep in your freezer?On a practical, day-to-day level, it can be hard to process the stark reality that the food we're consuming is directly related to our health and how we feel.Because in the moment, our stomachs typically override our brain.And that's exac...

    5 Signs You're Not Eating Enough Protein (and What to Do About It)

    5 Signs You're Not Eating Enough Protein (and What to Do About It)

    Get more protein.It's a phrase we hear a lot, but not always one we're super good at following through on, even when we're trying to eat healthy.Because the reality is that the Standard American Diet most of us are used to eating is shockingly low in protein, and often even the foods we THINK are high in protein actually aren't.And that means that there's a very good chance most of us are walking around with a protein deficiency without even realizing it.So how much protein do you actually ne...

Big fan

I’ve followed you for years- I didn’t realize this podcast was out here. I’m glad to have you in my ear again and a special big THANK YOU for the big pharma and food episode. Thank you thank you! I’m a 52 and a life coach for moms and getting the message out on my platform yet your audience is a wee bit bigger (wink wink) and I LOVE that you’re doing what you do! Thank you!! 🙏🏽 Susie Pettit

Great info and inspiration

I’ve been following Ruth for over a year with the Thinlicious program. It has worked well for me! But there are times that “life” gets in the way, and distractions can take me off course. Ruth always has an encouraging word and ways to get back on track. Not just ideology, but actual practical suggestions! Keep a notepad with you, because you’re going to want to remember what she and her guests talk about.

Cherry picking info to present a narrative

Consider me UNSUBSCRIBED! The info on the pharmaceutical industry is totally cherry picked. As for the opioid crisses which is real, there is no mention of JACO and their role. For hospitals to meet credential requirements pain management was part of the criteria for qualification, trust me you wouldn’t want to be a patient in a non credentialed hospital. It became standard of care to ask patients to rate their pain and make the pain go away, unfortunately this in hind sight caused patients to be introduced a med that could be addictive and cause problems. Addiction is a medical disease, but the intent was not to get people addicted. As well obesity is a disease, don’t know a doctor in the world or drug company that says take ozempic and eat twinkies. It’s always a team approach. I do think that the telemedicine companies that advertise for these type of med is wrong. I could go on but you get the point…btw lookup the SUNSHINE ACT. You will see that perks to physicians have been eliminated or significantly decreased over the past 15+ years.
