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to help midlife women create FREEDOM in our lives through healing our bodies from the inside out, while questioning the outdated mainstream narratives surrounding health and weight loss that haven't worked.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?

    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...

    If you’ve ever had a moment where you walked into a room and forgot why you were there, or you couldn’t find your car keys for the millionth time, or you just couldn’t quite remember that person’s name that you just met, then you know how frustrating it can be to feel like your brain is turning to mush.And the reality is, you’re not alone.

    The Ultimate Guide to Hormone Friendly Healthy Fats

    The Ultimate Guide to Hormone Friendly Healthy Fats

    If you grew up in the 80's and 90's like me, then you've probably been conditioned to believe that FAT is BAD.And honestly, I think that's a hard bias to overcome.Because for YEARS, we were told that fat was bad for us, that it clogged our arteries and made us gain weight, that it was the root cause of all of our health problems. And as a result, food manufacturers went out of their way to create low-fat and fat-free versions of all of our favorite foods, and we all went along with it, b...

    The Science of Weight Loss for Women Over 40

    The Science of Weight Loss for Women Over 40

    So here's a fun fact for you: when it comes to losing weight, your body doesn't actually care about your goals.It doesn't care what size jeans you want to fit into, or what the number on the scale says, or whether or not you're finally ready to wear a bikini this summer.But your body does have a goal.And that goal, more than anything else, is to SURVIVE.Your body's primary purpose is SELF-PRESERVATION.To keep your heart pumping and your brain working and your blood flowing through your veins....

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.
