    050: The ReFeed Day...and my Farewell.

    050: The ReFeed Day...and my Farewell.

    We all want to let loose sometimes. Or it's a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary, a vacation. What about "cheat days", and how do they fit into a fitness, or body composition journey? Can you have those days, or do they erase weeks of hard work in the gym, hours of meal prepping and counting macros all for one day off. 
    In this episode, my final FAREWELL episode, I discuss the real data around a "REFEED" day, and whether they work or they are necessary. In what situations are they beneficial, and how you could use them to help your process and progress without worrying about the side effects.

    What science is there around a refeed or a cheat day?

    Who should implement them and how?

    Thanks, and I might be back soon, but taking a break for now to focus on some other things.

    048: Why Goals Should Reflect Values

    048: Why Goals Should Reflect Values

    We all know resolutions, and in large part goals go unattained. Why? Let's talk about how we can be more effective in our intentions this year, and every year. 64% of resolutions set in January are abandoned within a month. Moreover, when we determine what our priorities are, we have to really compare those to our values. That is what can really set you up for success in your process.
    Remember, failing is not fatal, it is feedback. Little setbacks means more information, and opportunity to change and improve. Let's do it right this time...the only way to fail is to never try.
    Take Aways

    Goals, Intentions and Values. How they relate

    Assessing resources, barriers and support

    Understanding how to measure success, and how not to.

    The Process is as important as the product.

    047: Holiday Health Hacks and Such

    047: Holiday Health Hacks and Such

    Can you ditch the All-0r Nothing Mindset that so many people can't shake during the Holidays. Not going "all out" does not mean that you cannot enjoy yourself, have some traditional favorites, but still roll into the New Year ready to roll (not literally).
    Think about how you can give yourself unrestricted permission to eat. Meaning you do not deny or categorize foods as "off limits", but you also know you can have things whenever you choose so you are less apt to overdo...feeling like "I have to have this all or I will never get it again".
    Being in tune with your body, hunger, fullness. Moving your body in the morning on busy, social days sets your mind up for success. Exercise is not meant to "earn" calories, but it can leave you better able to manage the mental challenges of the day.
    Take-Aways

    Give yourself permission.

    Give yourself parameters.

    Pick Your Poison,...and not all of them.

    Make it about more than the Food.

    046: Does Fasted Training Burn More Fat?

    046: Does Fasted Training Burn More Fat?

    The debate is decades old. Do you need to get up cussing at your alarm clock to throw on your sneakers and hit the gym at the crack of dawn just to get the benefits of the extra fat burn? The research is just not there. Do you burn more fat by training in a fasted state. Probably...but does this always mean you will lose body fat? Nope. Not if your nutrition is not dialed in.
    If you are training fasted, but not keeping yourself in a calorie deficit over the coming days, weeks, months then you are still not going to see results.
    It really comes down to preference, training performance levels, what type of duration and training. Moreover, what your goals are around fat loss. There is not a "right" answer, but there are some important things to consider. I will discuss them all if you tune in!

    045: Do We Really Have a Set Point Weight?

    045: Do We Really Have a Set Point Weight?

    If we all have a natural set point weight, then why are some people obese? What about BMI, doesn't that tell us where everyone's weight should fall based on height? What is the truth about set point theory, how does it apply to dieting, weight regain and eating disorders. 

    In this episode I explore the idea of a natural genetic blueprint of weight, and how you know you are there. Dieting, and obesity have muddied the waters, but there is a place we all feel and function optimally. Can we change it, sure...but to what end?
