Answering some great hormone questions today! We covered the most important thing you can do for endometriosis when it comes to diet and lifestyle, which adaptogen to take for which specific issue and how to reframe stepping away from your beloved coffee, wine, sugar or other pleasure when you know it’s not working for you anymore.  This can be so tough! We share what has worked for us and for countless women when something is just really darn hard to walk away from.

This episode has us doing our favorite thing: answering your questions! We cover the biochemistry of BCAAs when it comes to muscle recovery and cravings as well as if you should use them if you have PCOS or insulin resistance. We dig into dairy a bit which leads us to our definition of real mindful eating (hint: it’s not just eating slower!). As well we had a great question from a listener who loves her intense cardio class because it’s such a stress reliever and gives her that great high. She’s wondering if there’s ever a time when even if it’s wreaking havoc on her hormones is it still worth it for the rush and relief? Such a juicy question! Listen up, this show is a great one!

Holy guacamole do we get into it in this meaty episode! (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) In this episode we are joined by co-founded of Butcher Box, Mike Salguero who gave us the inside scoop on the meat we eat. Not only did we cover up confusion around what grassfed even means for beef these days but also got clarification on other common marketing descriptors like free range, pasture raised and heritage breed. We hear Mike’s story on why he started Butcher Box, a company we love that makes healthier proteins accessible to all by delivering these quality products right to your door. Tune in and learn what labels to look for when buying chicken (it’s more than free range!), how pastured raised animals are helping the planet and why pork got deemed “the other white meat” in the first place.

AND as a gift to our listeners you can get started with Butcher Box right now and get $15 off your first order AND free bacon! While you’re at it visit Dry Farm Wines and have some organic, low sugar, hang-over free wine sent over as well (and get a bottle for a penny with this link).

We’re back with Q&A today and our first one was a doozy! We discussed what a saliva cortisol panel can and can’t tell you, when you should be digging into the deeper causes or stress vs. when it’s more related to lifestyle and how to know if your stress management tools like exercise may be causing MORE stress. We recapped what our ACES (appetite, cravings, energy and sleep) acronym is all about and how it’s the language of your hormones so we need to tune in and heed that message! In the case of this question her hormones were saying peanut butter and chocolate chips,  other days they say wine, but either way they are signals we can use to do better and stop fighting our hormones. We also tackled a great question on PCOS and intermittent fasting.

 

This stuff is our life’s work ladies! Helping you optimize your hormone balance with exercise, keeping you strong and injury free and loving the body you call home.
