    247: Carbs, Vibrant Energy + Fat Loss

    If you’ve ever tried to improve your health and eating, you’ve probably heard that carbs are bad for you 😬
    Let’s clarify a few things:
    First, carbs are essential for good health. 
    Second, this black and white type of thinking is why so many of us struggle with nutrition in the first place.
    While carbs are an essential part of our diet, when they are consumed in excess, you have the potential to overflow your gas tank which can lead to high blood sugar, weight gain, fatigue and many other issues.
    Remember, carbs are not unhealthy, BUT there a few guidelines that are worth following if you want to enjoy vibrant energy and a leaner body. 
    Press play and join me to learn the basic guidelines for incorporating carbs in your diet. 
    When you’re ready to take the next step, here’s how I can help.

    246: Stress + Anxiety Around Food

    246: Stress + Anxiety Around Food

    Greetings friend!

    How do you feel about things opening up after over a year or so in lockdown. Are you excited? Are you nervous that the parties and gatherings will derail you from your healthy habits? 

    I've had many questions in the past weeks from listeners and clients about overcoming the stress and anxiety around food when things open up. 
    One listener wrote "I found that covid restrictions (less socializing, no restaurants, extra free time to exercise) worked for me. Now that everything is opening up and we are eating out more, more get-togethers, etc., I am finding it more challenging. I truly want to make it a new lifestyle and not a diet."

    This is such an important question! I want you to feel good in your body AND live your life. I don't want you to ever feel like you need to choose between getting a body you love and enjoying vacations, parties and other celebrations. There's a way you can have it all. 

    Press play and let's work through these challenges so that you feel confident that you can enjoy going out AND have a body you love. 
    When you’re ready to take the next step, here’s how I can help.

    “O…. I just have tea instead of cold leftover pizza and Oreo cookies… I never knew!” said no one ever.

    If you feel out of control around carbs, this podcast is for you. Press play and let's have some real talk!
    When you’re ready to take the next step, here’s how I can help.

    243: Simple Is Not Easy

    243: Simple Is Not Easy

    Changing your health and fitness is simple. That doesn’t mean it’s easy. 
    The tactics for getting healthier and fitter are simple, in that they're easily understood. You know you need to move your body and eat more vegetables and stop overeating.
    But just because these strategies are simple to understand and execute, it doesn't mean that they are easy.
    But don’t let that stop you. Don’t let ‘easier said than done’ be your cop out (because, technically, isn’t everything easier said than done?).
    In this podcast I teach you how to make changing your lifestyle easier (and to have some fun along the way).
    When you’re ready to take the next step, here’s how I can help.

    242: How to Keep the Momentum Going

    242: How to Keep the Momentum Going

    If I had a dime every time someone asked me 'how do I keep the momentum going?', I might not be rich... but I'd at least be able to buy a new pair of runners (and have you seen the price of runners these days!?)
    If you're great at starting, but not so great at keeping it going, welcome to being human.
    Diet plans tell you what to eat, or how much to eat, or when to eat. That's it.

    ❌ Diet's don't teach you how to stay motivated so that you keep going, even on days you don't feel like it
    ❌ Diets don't teach you what to do when you overeat or fall off track
    ❌ Diet's don't teach you how to get yourself out for a walk when you feel like staying on the couch 

    In this podcast, I'll teach you what diet's don't. How to keep the momentum going.
    When you’re ready to take the next step, here’s how I can help.

So Glad I Found Tanja!

Came across this podcast while searching for health, wellness, and practical weight loss guidance. I did not realize until I’d listened to a few episodes that she’s catering to the 50+ age population. I am 35, and still find her to be so authentic and encouraging, always full of practical tips and thoughts! Also, I don’t know what it is, but Tanja genuinely sounds like she is smiling as she speaks. Maybe she is! I love it. I can honestly say that I feel happier and calmer after listening to every episode.

Love listening to Tanja and all of her guests.
Just the motivation, information, inspiration I need daily to navigate through my forties!! Realizing that being fit and vibrant isn’t as easy as it used to be.
Fit and vibrant you gets my day off to a good start every time I listen !!! Such great points, tips and mostly understanding!!

My favorite podcast

I found Tanja when I was looking for to help me navigate losing weight and loving my body at the same time. I found that episode (check out episode #141) but keep listening because every episode contributes to that goal. Her content just happens to be the crossroads of so many things I’ve been awakened to over the last couple of years and want to keep learning and mastering so it’s really my favorite podcast.
