Feeling Safe Around Food with Ali Shapiro!
Satisfying hunger is a fundamental human need crucial for survival and well-being. Hunger signals the body's need for nourishment, energy, and nutrients. But many of us suffer from feeling safety around food. This concept has been growing in recognition because many people are beginning to realize the vast emotional component to eating that was often neglected or outright dismissed in the workd of diet culture.
To dive into this concept, we invited Ali Shapiro to the show. Ali created the health coaching model, Truce with Food, while at the University of Pennsylvania in order to crack the stubborn nut of sustainable eating, exercise, and health changes by honoring the nature of complex change. She also created the Truce Coaching Certification to certify others who are working with complex change in all life areas.
Understanding the Common Threads in Mental Health and Weight Loss with Evan Transue
There are many commonalities between mental health and weight loss. In fact many of the lifestyle choices that we make create poor outcomes in both of these areas. Emotional factors, like stress, depression, and anxiety, often trigger unhealthy eating patterns, leading to weight gain. Conversely, excess weight can exacerbate mental health issues, perpetuating a cycle of negative emotions and overeating. Lifestyle choices, such as sleep, exercise, and nutrition, significantly impact both mental well-being and weight management. Recognizing and addressing these shared influences is key to achieving holistic health, emphasizing that mental and physical well-being are deeply intertwined.
To dive into this topic, we invited Evan Transue to the show. Evan is the host of the Health Detective Podcast and owner of Bucks County Light Therapy. He joins the show to share his insights on his own health journey that took him through battles with his mental health and eventually leading to the discovery of how optimal mental health and proper weight management are by-products of a healthy lifestyle.
Liver Love with Nurse Doza!
Often, we neglect to recognize the true importance of our liver in our day to day lives. In this episode, we are going to give the liver some much needs love and attention to acknowledge how critical it is for our overall health. In the world of weight loss, the liver plays a pivotal role in due to its involvement in metabolic processes, fat metabolism, and detoxification. A well-functioning liver aids in optimizing metabolism, regulating hormones, and processing nutrients efficiently, contributing significantly to successful and sustainable weight loss.

Jonathan Mendoza, aka "Nurse Doza," is a highly accomplished and well-respected holistic family nurse practitioner and Doctor of Chiropractic.

The Solution is Sleep! The Missing Ingredient in Your Weight Loss Diet.
Diet and exercise is aren’t the only shows in town when it comes to weight loss. Sleep plays a crucial role in weight loss due to its impact on various physiological processes. Sleep supports hormone regulation, specifically leptin and ghrelin, which control appetite and hunger. Inadequate sleep disrupts this balance, leading to increased hunger and food cravings, and reduced satiety. Moreover, during deep sleep, the body undergoes essential metabolic and restorative processes that aid weight loss.
So to help us prioritize sleep so that we can get all these amazing benefits, we invited Dr. Angela Holliday-Bell to the show. Dr. Holliday-Bell is the author of Sleeping on the Job, and she helps corporate employees develop wellness strategies to maximize performance and decrease burnout through better sleep.
Wellness to Wonderful: The Missing Links to Next Level Health
All the dieting in the world may not help you. In other words, there's more to wellness than a healthy diet.

They both have spent decades treating chronic illnesses like diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, and obesity with their diet and lifestyle medical practices. With Whole Foods Market cofounder John Mackey, they coauthored The Whole Foods Diet and The Whole Foods Cookbook.
