    LOSING SIGHT OF WHAT WORKS

    LOSING SIGHT OF WHAT WORKS

    The human brain is pretty fascinating.
    It's wired to both be wary of new things, and yet be excited by them.
    The human mind also loves to improve things in order to save us time and energy, and give us a survival advantage.
    The problem is that sometimes our desire for the dopamine hit we get from "new and exciting" causes us to lose touch with what's actually working...
    And in a lot of cases, overcomplicate the crap out of something that isn't complicated.
    I mean, how much simpler can it be than real food, water, and sleep?
    Here's an example of what I mean.
    A former Rebel who left the community posted pictures on social networks of what she was eating.There were many "foods" that we on Code Red call workarounds, like "keto bread," "keto cupcakes," and "keto snacks."
    After only three months, this lady gained back a lot of the weight she'd lost on Code Red.
    After another three months, she'd gained back all of it or more...
    Not because the program doesn't work, but because she stopped following it.
    She lost sight of what works, and for whatever reason, didn't want to see it again.
    To make sure you don't fall into this trap (or that you escape if you already have fallen in), check out this week’s new podcast to discover how and why simple basics are the answer to getting and keeping your weight off and living a healthy lifestyle, regardless of whether your brain wants to squirrel after the latest magic gimmick...
    Because if there's "magic" to be had, it comes from following the simple basics that work, and NOT from another pill, patch, or powder.

    10 STUPID THINGS PEOPLE SAY TO YOU WHILE LOSING WEIGHT

    10 STUPID THINGS PEOPLE SAY TO YOU WHILE LOSING WEIGHT

    Over the past 28 years of being in this industry, I’ve heard people say pretty stupid things to people on a weight loss journey.
     
    It's frustrating for me, my Rebels, and my Coaches to both hear people say this stuff to you, and to see it bother you as much as it does.
    Something that REALLY helps is to just expect that someone, at some point, will say some, most, or even ALL of these 10 things.
    Even people who care about you and support you may still say them!
    In this week's new podcast episode, I'm gonna break down these 10 stupid things people say, so you can be prepared for them, instead of caught off guard and second-guessing your decision to get the weight off for good.
    You’re not alone in facing these stupid comments and questions, so don’t face them alone. 
    Instead, tune into this week’s podcast episode to hear all 10 things, count how many of them you've heard over the years, and learn why people say this stuff to you.

    HOW TO FIND A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER

    HOW TO FIND A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER

    If you've ever wondered how to find a health care provider who will support your Code Red Lifestyle™, this is the podcast for you.
    My sister, Cari, has a master’s degree in nursing education and has taught at nursing school. She's also worked as a nurse for decades.
    All that means she's been around a lot of primary care providers. Some she liked working with, and some she didn't, because some acted like dictators instead of doctors.
    Look, your doctor isn't your dictator. Your doctor is a partner in your health journey. If they're not acting like it, that's a red flag.
    Plus, though I’m a big believer in the medical establishment for many reasons, weight loss is not one of them! 
    The majority of health care providers today are overweight and metabolically sick.
    When an overweight, sick physician tells YOU how to lose weight, while also questioning and criticizing your lifestyle of real food, water, and sleep, again, it's probably time for a different primary care provider.
    Tune into this week’s podcast to hear both why you should shop around for a healthcare provider, what to look for, what to avoid, and how to research which provider will work best for you.

    How to Stay on Track While You're Sick

    How to Stay on Track While You're Sick

    A question I get a lot is how to stay on track with Code Red while you're sick.
    People who live the Code Red Lifestyle™ get sick a LOT less, because we eat and live in a way that manages inflammation. More inflammation = more illness in general.
    Still, getting sick can happen even as a Rebel, and it's important to know how to manage being sick without going off the rails.
    The mainstream "remedies" people turn to when they're sick feed inflammation, which, like I said, makes sickness worse.
    In this week's new podcast episode, Cari and I are deep diving into how you can handle being sick on Code Red without making your cold or flu last even longer, or derailing your weight loss and gaining 10+ pounds that you'll have to turn around and lose again.
    We'll also talk about what you can do to avoid getting sick in the first place. Tune in and get all our tips and tricks on preventing colds and flus, and getting over them more quickly (without derailing your weight loss) if you do catch one.

    The Battle Doesn't End

    The Battle Doesn't End

    Everyone who's losing weight wonders, at some point, what life after weight loss is like.
    Maybe you expect it to be easy. (Or hope it will be.)
    Maybe you're terrified of it because it's alien territory.
    Maybe you're hoping not to struggle.
    In this week's podcast, Cari and I are shining a light on the mystery of life after weight loss as it relates to whether or not you'll struggle.
    Because the truth is, at some point, you probably will.
    And we don't want you to feel like there's something wrong with you when you do.
    The problem with presenting a "perfect" face about this kind of thing is that people end up feeling inferior and broken because they assume it's "easy for everyone but me."
    That is 100% NOT true. Everyone struggles at some point.
    Tune into this week’s podcast to learn how your expectation that it will get “easy later” might sabotage your journey; and to hear how you can use your mind to keep winning the battle for a healthy body.

What is normal podcast

I love working out and listening to this podcast. I just want to clear the air in the what is normal podcast, a comment was made about a “LDS “ body builder being uncomfortable showing off her body due to religion. Members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints would never get kicked out of the church if they chose to compete in a competition for body building. Perhaps she as a member of the Church felt uncomfortable ( I don’t know I don’t know her) but what I do know is if there were members of her congregation that judged her that is one them and not on the Church as a whole. Unfortunately the church is wonderful but full of imperfect people as is the world. I just wanted to make sure people understood the difference!!!
