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. While we dove into as many specifics as we could over the air, we can help you better LIVE so don’t miss getting on the waitlist for our next Hangry B*tches group which begins April 2, 2018. One of our biggest offerings – in addition to a great program - is the ability for you to upload your videos to a private Facebook group for Sarah to coach.  You’ll get the entire diet, mindset AND exercise program from our upcoming book – and us to coach you through it for four whole weeks!

In this episode we cover a myriad of ways you may be able to get better results, have less injuries and keep your hormones happier in the gym. You know we’re big fans of strength training if you know us at all! But there are several things we see women getting stuck with whether that’s in a class setting, knowing when to bump up their weights and even how to warm up properly. We also talk about the taking the right mindset to the gym and answer the ever popular question: how much cardio should you be doing?

Warning: this episode does deal with the subject of sexual, physical and emotional abuse.  In this episode we are joined by the lovely Dr Meg Haworth who has personally and professionally dealt with all of the various forms of abuse.  Having been abused as a child, nearly downed, struck by lightning it’s no wonder her professional path led to a PhD in Interpersonal Psychology so she can help other women that have survived abuse as well.  We touched on which type of chronic health issues in adulthood are correlated with which specific types of abuse from childhood as well as how we can best support abuse survivors whether that be ourselves or other women we care about. And of course we talked a ton about self-care for all of us, abused or not.

In this episode we have the brilliant and beautiful Dr. Gabrielle Lyon! We asked her all your burning questions about what to eat before a workout, and after, how much protein women really need and why she believes muscle is the organ of longevity. Dr Lyon calls protein the “black sheep of the macros” because it has such an emotional trigger for many of us – after all it has a face. We talked about the chemistry of protein, why it’s so crucial and some vegetarian protein source math so you can do better with your protein choices. To learn more about Dr Lyon click here.
