    239: Simple Fat Loss Journey for Females

    239: Simple Fat Loss Journey for Females

    PFL Weight Loss Course: 50% off with the coupon code in this podcast episode!!!!!
    If you are a woman who wants to lose weight, you need simple steps and goals that are achievable day by day. Taking on a very difficult program can be great, but is not always suitable to the season of our life in the present. This is why it's important to shift your mindset to one of simple actions, and know why you want to make these little changes. This is called outcomes-focused goal-setting. Place value on what you want to create in your life, and you will find yourself more easily getting there.
    In this episode, I will discuss four simple keys of strategy you can begin applying as soon as you're done listening:
    1. Break down your total daily protein goal and distribute the portions equally between your number of meals. This will help you stabilize blood sugar throughout the day, as well as stay ahead of hunger so you minimize cravings and hunger.
    2. Focus on eating the three power fats each day: avocado, olives, and healthy oil. These monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are known as 'healthier fats' and help release the hormone, CCK, which helps to tell your brain you are full.
    3. Remember that all you do is about creating a caloric deficit. Don't play good cop/bad cop with non-strategic foods. Instead, find a pattern that works best for you and the way you think.
    4. Pursuant to #3 being required to lose weight, listen to your fulness meter, eating to a 6 or 7 out of 10 each time you eat. You should not be full, or overly full, but satisfied to get you through to the next meal.
    PROTEIN POWDER RECOMMENDATIONS:
    1. Whey Protein (recommended for BEST TASTE, EASE OF MIXING, and PRICE)
    2. Bone Broth Protein (recommended for BEST QUALITY)

My new favorite podcaster

Good morning all
First off Kristy you can thank my brother from another mother Frank G for getting my hooked on your podcasts. So much great info. Listened to your latest one with frank and tell ya what buddy if I see the donut yeah it’s going down. Lol.
As I make my way thru your podcasts it only inspires me more to do what I do.
I’m a motivational speaker as well. I talk about suicide prevention since the loss of my good friend almost ten years ago and my brother in June of last year.
Being reassure as I have chosen the lifestyle like frank. I now know that if I slip and eat something not right for me that I just get back at it the next day. Not beat myself up for it. Great podcast. I look forward to your channel.

Rock star!

Kristy has a simple approach to the complex and emotionally charged subject of nutrition. She is realistic but firm with her beliefs and she knowledge shines through in the way that she explains concepts. I have been listening and learning from her for years and continue to learn from her. She is willing to change her trajectory as her life and viewpoints change and isn’t afraid to admit so. Love her honesty and hope she continues to produce high quality content for a long time.
