    Q&A Round Table with Marty Kendall, Matty Lansdown & Karen Martel

    Q&A Round Table with Marty Kendall, Matty Lansdown & Karen Martel

    In part 2 of my round table with Maty and Marty, we answer listeners' questions.
    Does cholesterol level correlate with insulin and blood glucose level. If yes - why, what is a physiological explanation. If not, again why?   Do I have to dial in macros to have success with DDF?  I'm surgically menopausal (gees back in 2015) why can't I have any good carbs? I can only lose the weight/fat eating a lion diet. How to help the rise in morning blood glucose from a cortisol release?  In reference to changing hormones (for women), to match your other half, to build a better relationship sexually, is there a negative result of “tweaking” hormones to do these adjustments vs letting the body’s hormones adjust naturally on their own?  General best practices for surgical menopause HRT with family history of breast cancer and personal history of PCOS. Should everyone avoid gluten?  Cold immersion for women. Pro’s & Con’s? Is menopause really going to be the death sentence everyone makes it sound like?  Will the vaccine affect my weight loss?  Is the carnivore diet the holy grail of weight loss and more!

    Round Table Talk on The Hottest Diet Trends Out There with Matty Lansdown & Marty Kendall

    Get ready for an epic conversation on the latest diet trends from the top weight loss coaches in the industry!
    In this episode, I am joined by my two fav Aussies Marty Kendall and Matty Lansdown. We dive deep into some of the hottest diet trends out there today. 
    Fasting when is too much and why women need to be careful. How do we reap the benefits of fasting without taking it to the extreme. Why high fat keto diets can make you gain weight.  The benefits and the challenges of tracking your food and my own experience with it.  Why it can be challenging to eat a lot of protein. How to get your body to release more fat.  The energy from food and what you need to prioritize in order to optimize weight loss.  What types of animal protein can make you more hungry and possibly spike blood glucose and which ones are best to eat for satiety.  The pros and cons of the protein-sparing modified fast and how it can help you to jump-start weight loss.  How to avoid rebound weight gain from any diet.  Why diets work in the beginning but then plateau.  What percentage of protein do you need to eat when dieting to maintain muscle mass.  Realistic weight loss time frames.  The giant missing piece of the majority of diets on the market.  The role of dopamine in our life and how it could be negatively affecting our diet.  Marty Kendall is the author of the book Big Fat Keto Lies.

    Non Scale Victories with Pam and Karen

    Non Scale Victories with Pam and Karen

    When it comes to a weight-loss journey it’s oh-so-satisfying to see those numbers go down. BUT your weight is not the only thing you should be tracking. It is so important to your success to watch for non-scale victories and also have non-scale victories to work toward. 
    In this episode, I have a candid conversation with my friend, business partner, and personal trainer Pam Sherman.
    Our society and especially women put a lot of emphasis on weight, and it can seem like you have spent a lifetime trying to lose those extra pounds.
    Pam and I dive into why focusing on weight alone isn't the best thing to do and why it is important to have non-scale victories and goals.
    We share our own non-scale victories that we have had from working with each other and some of our client's victories as well.
    Plus we answer some of our member's questions and let you in on the details of our new program for women in peri and post-menopause!

The information she provides is so vital to understanding our hormones and our bodies. It’s getting to the bottom of whatever is going on — not just band-aiding over the problem. Thank you for sharing your knowledge!
