    Alcohol & Weight Loss

    Alcohol & Weight Loss

    If you’re on a weight-loss or health journey, you might be wondering how alcohol fits into the equation. First, you should evaluate how you drink: do you find yourself mindlessly snacking, or are you giving up on healthy habits the day after drinking? It’s also important to understand how the body metabolizes alcohol too, and you might not like the truth! But most importantly, understanding why you drink at all might help you make the decision that makes the most sense for your journey. You can always enjoy a drink or two, in moderation.

    Intermittent Fasting: How to Know If It's Right For You

    Intermittent Fasting: How to Know If It's Right For You

    Intermittent fasting (or IF for short) is a tool some people use to increase the amount of time spent between meals, usually dinner and breakfast the following morning. In today’s episode, I’m sharing the what’s, why’s, and how’s of intermittent fasting. IF can be great, but it’s not for everyone and it’s certainly not a long-term solution for most people. I’m all about working towards getting you stronger, happier, and healthier. Is intermittent fasting the best way to get you there?

    The Do's and Don't's of Postpartum Fitness with Dr. Jackie Kickish

    For you mamas out there, you might’ve heard that a permanently weak core and bladder “leakage” are normal post-baby, but Dr. Jackie Kickish is here to tell you that it’s not. Postpartum pelvic floor dysfunction might be common, but that doesn’t make it healthy, and it also doesn’t mean you have to live with the shame and embarrassment of it for the rest of your life. Jackie is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and certified pregnancy and postpartum corrective exercise specialist who’s on a mission to help moms improve their pelvic floor function so they feel strong and confident. If you’ve had a baby and you’re ready to get back to the fitness world, give this episode a listen so you know what to do (and not to!) as you head back to the gym.
