Drum roll please....Melissa Joulwan! Author, blogger, lifter of heavy things, kitchen goddess and all around super cool chick (like did roller derby cool) is our guest and it was one of our favorite episodes to record. We hear Mel's journey from a kid at weight loss camp to cross-fitter to surviving a thyroid cancer scare to finally learning to objectively look in the mirror and think, ya know what? It actually is all good.

Mel, author of Well Fed and Well Fed 2, has a new book for you: Well Fed Weeknights: Complete Paleo Meals in 45 Minutes or Less and it's available for pre-order on September 29, 2016.  Get some extra special gifts including a 4 week meal plan with some of her favorite recipes when you pre-order here. If you've ever thought you don't have time to eat well, you need this book. If you've ever thought eating well is bland and boring, you need this book. If you want to hear us three talk about putting fresh herbs on all the things, listen to this episode.

Oh my is right! In this episode we discuss whether or not supplements can shrink a uterine fibroid, why thyroids go so wonky during and after pregnancy, the thyroid cholesterol connection and why you're still hearing the go low fat advice for high lipids. We also answer a very juicy question about stress as related to coffee and caffeine (especially if you feel "addicted" to your morning fix).

You know that one of the things we aim to do is talk about the stuff women are a little nervous to ask about like, um, vaginal dryness. But ladies, you are never alone in these funky hormonal issues so we cover that, how big a deal is a borderline thyroid, how to handle hormonal headaches and what we really think of protein supplements.

It's Q&A time again! Sarah and Dr Brooke cover Grave's Disease and answer the question: can you eat your thyroid back to health? We give advice on how to get started with strength training if you're a newbie and revisit the Paleo Thumbs Up Or Thumbs Down episode and go more in depth on the fat plus carbs hormonal equation when going Paleo especially if you have hormonal issues like PCOS or perimenopause. And finally, is the estrogen in beef tallow skin care a good thing if you're post-menopausal or otherwise low estrogen?

This episode answers questions straight from you: our listeners! We cover taking collagen supplements and their effect on cellulite (could they actually make it worse??!!) and answer the question: can going Paleo cause you to lose your period? Our email has been bursting with glowing praise - thank you! One such email is from a long time fan of Sarah's whose wife is suffering with trigger finger. We give some options for treatment and other things to investigate. And last but certainly not least is how to set boundaries, how to do it all and not do a bum job in any area: mom, wife, breadwinner. Hear what Sarah and Dr Brooke had to say to this woman who let's face it, could've been Dr Brooke writing in.
