    232: Thriving Through Menopause with Dr. Michelle Gordon

    232: Thriving Through Menopause with Dr. Michelle Gordon

    Menopause is a journey—one for which many of us arrive unprepared and surprised.  And for many, it's not a pleasant journey, rife with undesirable changes such as weight gain, mood swings, and sleepless nights.
     
    But what if suffering through menopause was optional?
    What if you could feel GOOD during menopause?
     
    Dr. Michelle Gordon (better known as Dr. G) believes that you can.
     
    Dr. G is the founder of The Menopause Movement - a community of women who have transcended the misery that can come with menopause. The women in The Menopause Movement are helping each other flourish through menopause and life. Dr. G is also host of The Menopause Movement Podcast.
     
    She’s a board-certified general surgeon who became a menopause expert out of necessity.
     
    When menopause hit her out of the blue with embarrassing hot flashes, crippling self-doubt, stubborn belly fat, and raging moods, she went to work to understand what was happening. Through trial and error on herself, she began to thrive.
     
    Her mission is to help you discover the secret to ditching MENO-Misery and making menopause the best time of your life the MENO-Mate way!
     
    Join in on my conversation with Dr. G to discover:
    ✔️WHY so many women struggle through menopause
    ✔️Specific foods to eat (and not eat) to minimize 'MenoMisery"
    ✔️The mindset shifts you must make to become vibrant, health and happy through menopause
     
    Plus, we answer YOUR questions about hot flashes, changes in skin, weight gain and more.

    231: Stop Stress Eating

    231: Stop Stress Eating

    Ever find yourself standing in the pantry or mindlessly eating leftover cold pizza, or peanut butter straight from the tub when you're stressed?
    If so, you’re not alone. It’s frustrating, and the answer is not found in a diet plan, or with the well-intended advice to have a cup of tea instead. 
    “O…. I just have tea instead of cold leftover pizza and Oreo cookies… I never knew!” said no one ever.

    Join me for some real talk about STRESS EATING. Why we do it, and most importantly, what to do to STOP the cycle.

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.

Awesome, motivational podcast!

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.
