    #153 - How to get a good nights sleep with Craig McDonald

    #153 - How to get a good nights sleep with Craig McDonald

    Craig, my cofounder of Nustrength and cohost, and I are back! In this episode, we are digging into everything about sleep and offering up tips to get a good night's sleep.

    So many women that come into our program struggle with it. When I was on those bloody restrictive diets, I also struggled with sleep. Then, over the past two years, when we were trying to conceive, I had so much trouble sleeping. I was so stressed, and I think the stress and emotional stuff are often underrecognized as a problem when it comes to sleep, even causing disruptions when you’re doing everything else right.

    So, in this episode, Craig and I discuss:
    ➡️What can help you de-stress and sleep better
    ➡️Nutritional and caloric considerations for sleep
    ➡️Calculating your maintenance calories
    ➡️Movement, steps, and sleep
    ➡️Morning and bedtime routines
    ➡️Salt and the stress hormones
    ➡️Tracking sleep
    ➡️How sleep improves performance

    #152 - From drug addiction, stripping and her husband committing suicide to transforming her body, health, and life and becoming a coach with Melissa Collins

    #152 - From drug addiction, stripping and her husband committing suicide to transforming her body, health, and life and becoming a coach with Melissa Collins

    We have so many amazing coaches and friends as part of our company and mission, so I wanted to do a coaches series where we talk to our coaches and hear their stories.

    Mel is an amazing coach and friend. I’ve known her almost as long as I’ve known Craig. She has such an incredible and inspiring story. Mel has also had heaps of success with so many women who have had a lot of weight to lose. Mel has a client who's lost 46 kgs and kept it off.

    And Mel is SO different from the person she was 7 years ago when we first met. She’s experienced a lot of hardship but has persevered. If you need some inspiration, this podcast is definitely work giving a listen!

    In this episode, Melissa and I chat about:
    ➡️Her journey over the last decade
    ➡️Her past drug and alcohol use
    ➡️One of the biggest decisions Mel made
    ➡️The abuse she faced as a child
    ➡️Relationships and love
    ➡️Mel’s past limiting beliefs and how she overcame them
    ➡️Consistency and change
    ➡️Going back to study and getting her qualifications to become a coach
    ➡️How she has had so much success with other women when it comes to losing weight and improving their health
    ➡️Mel’s advice to women trying to lose weight and get healthy

    #148 - From 20 years of drinking and prescription drugs, to transforming her body and life to competing with Anna Hansell

    #148 - From 20 years of drinking and prescription drugs, to transforming her body and life to competing with Anna Hansell

    This is the third time we’ve had Anna on the podcast! Anna has had the most incredible physical, emotional, and mental transformation over the last four years in our program. She started when she was 40, and she’s 44 years old now. Throughout the last four years, she’s been through a divorce, moved house 8 times and became a single mum with 4 kids. But she always perseveres!

    I think Anna’s journey just goes to show that if you want something enough, you’ll make it happen. She is just amazing, so I wanted to get her back on to talk about her journey and recent body building competition.

    In this episode, Anna and I chat about:
    ➡️Anna’s dieting history
    ➡️How she lost 10 kgs
    ➡️How she quit drinking and antidepressants
    ➡️The importance of food prep in her transformation 
    ➡️The rollover effect of improving her health
    ➡️What made Anna decide she wanted to do a bodybuilding competition
    ➡️How she’s feeling post-competition and some of the effects it's had on her energy levels, sleep and cycle
    ➡️Consistency and why it's important
    ➡️Advice Anna has for other women on this journey

Mind Blown

My body called a quits after having my son at 39 years old. I was extremely fatigued, unable to loose weight, anxious, and sick constantly. I returned to my old tricks to loose weight fast: fasting, restriction, and excessive exercise. Not only did I feel miserable, I gained another 20lbs. Depression set in as I wasn’t being the mother I know I could be. I had zero energy. I went to my primary dr and my gyn who both brushed me off. Feeling lost and hopeless I prayed to God to help me find answers. I found this podcast and was immediately intrigued. I immediately binged every episode. I had it playing while I was making dinner, walking, and even while I showered. I slowly incorporated some tips suggested and in two weeks my energy was back. That alone had me convinced that I had been doing wrong all along. I’m so excited to continue this journey. Thank God for Kitty! @kls10

Myth busting

Love listen to Kitty and her guests get real about how their lives have changed for the better. Having a mix of experts and regular people who share their journey is inspiring and gives you tons to learn and think about. Who doesn’t want to love eating?

Highly recommend

This show has been a game changer for me. Every episode is packed with helpful information without being overwhelming. As a woman who has suffered for most of my life with hormone issues, this show has finally given me hope. There are so many paths to health and each of us are unique. They do a great job of covering many topics and ideas.
