    Your Most-Asked Questions of Summer 2024

    Your Most-Asked Questions of Summer 2024

    Code red - For this episode, I'm sharing my answers to the top SIX most asked questions I've been getting this summer.
    I got these questions from reading comments on my YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok channels.
    Here are the six questions I'm gonna answer in the episode:
    "How is Miles?" (Miles is my ex-husband. We were together for ten years.)
    "Anything new happening for you, Cristy?"
    How is Hazel?" (Hazel is my Belgian Malinois who turned two a couple months ago. She's featured in a lot of my content and is quite a character.)
    "Why did you grow out your hair and change the color?"
    "Why are you competing in bodybuilding again?"
    "Are you SEEING anyone?"
    Yep, these are all personal questions about me rather than about the Code Red program. (I've also done podcasts where I answer common Code Red program questions.)
    And, since so many people seem to wanna know the answers, I'm dedicating this episode to answering them.
    If knowing the answers interests you, tune in to this episode to hear them!

    Every day is DAY 1 with Jake Thomas

    Every day is DAY 1 with Jake Thomas

    A few months ago, Instagram suggested I start following a guy named Jake Thomas. I'd never heard of him, but when I saw that we followed a lot of the same people, ran in the same circles, and had a lot in common, I thought, "Why not?"
    One thing Jake said that stuck with me was, “Every day is day one.”
    See, Jake grew up in New Orleans in a suburban family. He appeared “good” on the outside and his family seemed “perfect"...but things were NOT good OR perfect.
    Having no direction or purpose in his life, and while carrying a lot of suppressed emotional baggage he didn't know what to do with, Jake joined the Marines at age 17, where he found leadership, assertiveness, and mission.
    But after he left the Marines, he lost all sense of identity. Even working in the oil fields and making plenty of money, he couldn't handle reality and escaped with booze and "pleasurable company." He also got fat and inflamed.
    His turning point came at age 30, when he finally got fed up and asked himself, “Dude! Where are you going? What are you doing?!”
    Determined to clean up his act, Jake researched human physiology and discovered that what we eat impacts everything in our lives, including our mind and spirit.
    Jake took control of his eating (he went carnivore) and adopted the same training style used in recruit training in the Marines, which is where "every day is day one" comes from.
    The day recruits ARRIVE for training is day ZERO. The day they START is day ONE.
    As Jake explains, it doesn’t matter what you look like on day zero. When training starts on day one, it’s on. Everybody is the same on day one.
    Jake also says that “The single most effective thing we can do as human beings is controlling what we put in our mouth.”
    Amen! And you can start doing that today, even if you've never done it a day in your life or you've gone back to your old ways.
    Every day is day one, which means every day you can "start training" again.
    For more motivation and encouragement to move beyond past choices, guilt, shame, and any other crud holding you back, tune into this episode of Rebel Weight Loss & Lifestyle, where I talk with Jake Thomas about why EVERY day is day one.

    FIND OUT IF YOU'RE RIGHT

    FIND OUT IF YOU'RE RIGHT

    Exodus 14 of the Bible includes a famous story everyone’s heard about: The parting of the Red Sea.
    The Israelites were fleeing captivity and slavery in Egypt at the hands of Pharaoh.
    With the Egyptian army closing in on them, the Israelites stood at the edge of the Red Sea with nowhere to go.
    So God told Moses to stretch out his arm to part the waters...
    BUT the waters didn’t part until the children of Israel TOOK A STEP toward the Red Sea.
    In the New Testament of the Bible, while Jesus was walking on water, he told Peter to take a step toward him - ON the water - to meet him.
    These stories remind me that the first step is usually the hardest.
    (Or, as we say in boxing, the first round is the hardest.)
    For example, at the half-marathon most of my Coaches and I ran in Jackson Hole, Wyoming this year, that first mile was the hardest.
    The first step is usually the scariest, too, no matter what you're doing...starting a business, going on a first date, or even starting the Code Red Lifestyle™.
    I wish more people understood that NOT taking that hard or scary first step is worse than the fear or difficulty of taking it.
    I’m not good at very many things, but I don’t fear taking chances, because when I take a chance, I have a 50/50 chance of being right.
    Sometimes I’m right. Sometimes I’m not. But I find out.
    If I don't take a chance, on the other hand, I have a zero percent chance of being right.
    Tune into this episode to find out why taking that first step and finding out if you're right is the key to an amazing, fulfilling life that you'll be proud of (and quite possibly, the key to getting and keeping your weight off).

    BECOMING ANTI-FRAGILE

    BECOMING ANTI-FRAGILE

    If I had to pick someone to be stuck on a deserted island with (or even go through the apocalypse with), it would be a Code Red Rebel.
    That's because we rebel against gimmicks and instead pick our hard and we do hard things.
    We rebel against a society, a government, and an education system that brainwashed us to believe lies like:
    You "have" to exercise to lose weight.
    You "have" to eat low fat to lose fat.
    You "have" to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks a day.
    You "have" to eat 9 to 11 servings of grain a day.
    That dogma has kept us sick and fat for over 70 years.
    But a Code Red Rebel doesn’t bend the knee to that narrative.
    The Code Red Lifestyle™ is structured for more than safe, sustainable weight loss without gimmicks, shots, or exercise.
    It's also structured to help you become anti-fragile in every way - physically, socially, and mentally.
    That's why Code Red Rebels are tougher than your average bear. They're anti-fragile.
    To hear more about being anti-fragile with Code Red, tune into this episode.

    YOU ARE A WALKING BILLBOARD

    YOU ARE A WALKING BILLBOARD

    This episode is gonna ruffle some feathers. It's one of those things a lot of people do NOT wanna hear.
    It’s also something most people think about and deal with all day every day. It’s on our minds (maybe consciously or unconsciously), and it is shaping our daily lives.
    What am I talking about?
    I'm talking about the fact that each of us are a walking billboard.
    How we show up in the world sends a message, and we're not always thinking about the message we're sending.
    And whether we like it or not, other people judge us based on how we show up.
    Tune into this episode to get my take on how and why you are a walking billboard, and how you can influence how other people perceive you (for better or worse).

    WILLING TO RISK IT ALL

    WILLING TO RISK IT ALL

    In today's cancel culture environment, speaking hard truths is something more and more people are scared to do.
    I get it. I get angry DMs all the time from people who don't like my direct, no-B.S. approach.
    In last week's episode of Rebel Weight Loss & Lifestyle, I talked about how they're counting on your surrender.
    Well, that applies to more than your health.
    It applies to surrendering what you believe in, too.
    If standing up for what you believe in is something you're scared to do, it's understandable, and THIS podcast episode might help you feel more empowered to do it.
    It's about being willing to risk it ALL for what you believe.
    Whether you agree with me on everything or not, give it a listen and let it fuel you to stand up to the food pushers, to the people who claim drinking water will kill you, and to the people who think you should get a shot that starves your body of nutrients instead of losing weight with real food.

Boo hickey ,

Give it your all!

Hey Cristy, It’s Mariah Campos! You and your sister’s podcasts are so helpful and I honestly wish there were a million more! Thank you so much for the break down of science, health and our bodies to help your community understand the truth! I appreciate you both being so transparent with even your own battles you’ve gone through to help us with OUR own everyday testimonies and whatever may come! I really vibe with all your podcasts and videos(knowledge is power)! I understand the “Eating to hate” episode but the way I see it is I grew up in barely above poverty and no matter what food it was, we couldn’t afford to throw it away, unless it had “gone bad” so changing that mindset has been so freeing because I would rather be a rebel than a slave! Again, you guys are brilliant and absolutely amazing for what you do and give!

Success and leadership involves a balance of strength and empathy.

I understand and respect your commitment to raising awareness about obesity and its effects on individuals and the healthcare system. Your passion for this cause is evident and has the potential to inspire meaningful change. However, I feel compelled to share my perspective on some of the content that you have posted on your platforms.

Using images or videos of individuals without their consent, especially in a manner that could be seen as shaming, crosses a boundary of privacy and respect. While the intention might be to highlight a public health issue, the method of doing so can inadvertently harm those who are already vulnerable and struggling.

Everyone has their own story, and we cannot know the personal circumstances behind each individual's health journey. Publicly sharing such content can lead to embarrassment, hurt feelings, and a sense of invasion of privacy, which may not be conducive to the positive change you're aiming for.

As an influencer, your voice carries weight, and with it, a responsibility to lead with empathy and kindness. I believe there is an opportunity here to approach this topic in a way that is both informative and uplifting, without compromising the dignity of others.
Relationships and how we treat others, whether they are family, friends, employees or strangers, are at the core of our well-being.
It is never too late to change course and adopt a more empathetic approach. By doing so, you can still advocate for your cause while also fostering a supportive following. This could lead to more fulfilling relationships and a legacy that you can actually be proud of.
You claim to be a godly person who believes in Christ. Are we not supposed to forgive others? No one is perfect; all humans make mistakes. It is sad to hear you say you have no desire to have your sisters in your life ever again. If you are not careful, there may come a day when you will be alone—without family, employees, a husband, or a career. Nothing. Well... maybe a dog... they are an important part of our lives, but definitely not the only thing.

You say you are resilient. Resilience is indeed a commendable quality, but it should not come at the expense of others' well-being or dignity. True resilience is about overcoming personal challenges while also being mindful of the impact one's actions have on those around them. It's about growing stronger internally without diminishing others. Building a legacy that is both resilient and respectful is something to be truly proud of. It reflects a character that values not just personal success, but also the success and happiness of others.

Success can be measured in many ways, and while being polarizing might draw attention or provoke discussion, it doesn’t necessarily equate to success. Success often involves a balance of respect, positive influence, and the ability to inspire and uplift others without causing harm or division. It’s about creating a legacy that’s not only remembered for its achievements but also for its positive impact on individuals and communities.

It’s difficult to determine the motivations behind someone’s actions without knowing them personally. People can exhibit traits that may seem narcissistic or haughty, but these behaviors could also be a way of coping with their own insecurities or a cry for attention and love. It’s important to approach such situations with empathy and an open mind, recognizing that everyone has their own struggles and that behavior is often a reflection of one’s internal state. Offering understanding and compassion, even when we disagree with someone’s actions, can sometimes open the door to better communication and healing.

The effectiveness of tough love depends on the situation and the individuals involved. It requires a deep understanding of the person and their needs, as well as a commitment to supporting them through change. When misapplied, it can damage relationships and hurt those it was meant to help. It’s always important to balance firmness with empathy, ensuring that the person on the receiving end feels supported rather than attacked.

I know you are a Trump lover. As am I; he has my vote. I love his leadership and how he is able to get things done. He is direct and decisive. But he can be polarizing at times, and this is actually one of his worst traits; he can often times be his own worst enemy. Being direct and decisive can be admirable, and it’s understandable that these characteristics can resonate with many people. At the same time, it’s also valuable to consider the impact of communication styles and how they affect others. Leadership involves a balance of strength and empathy, and finding that balance can be key to effective and respectful governance. If he could have some empathy and respect towards others; just imagine the support and followers he would have. It would be simply amazing.

MAGA and MAHA are great goals. But let's do it with dignity and respect for others. I hope this message is received in the spirit of constructive feedback. I wish you well.

No nonsense

I appreciate the no-nonsense approach to nutrition that these ladies provide. I wish more people could hear this information… so many people could avoid bariatric surgery by following these “rules” - though it’s less work than what you’d have to do to prepare for bariatric surgery, so it’s a win-win! I really appreciated the podcast about home care experiences- we certainly do pretend like what we do today doesn’t determine what our golden years will be like. Thanks for providing this podcast!

(I would love to contact you directly but I can’t figure out how)
