Fasting, it’s all the rage right? Intermittent fasting, days of fasting, weeks of fasting - this strategy runs the gamut. And we get asked about it all the time! So we brought on the Living’ La Vida Low Carb Man himself, Mr. Jimmy Moore to break it down for us. How long, who can benefit – and you can bet Dr Brooke chimed in with her two cents (ok probably more than two…) about who this strategy may not be the best for.

When we started this podcast we wanted to talk about more than just hormones and going to the gym because women’s lives are so much bigger than all that. Today’s episode isn’t about lifting weights or not eating gluten or body image, it’s about money. But it does have a healthy, wellness spin because what’s a bigger source of stress than finances???? And women, let’s be real honest here: many of us aren’t all that great with money.

 

Today’s guest tells us why women struggle in this area, how they can do better and helps us see that we never really “learned money” – and we should! Krisstina Wise joins us today and tells her story of balancing money and health and why investing in YOUR BODY is her number one suggestion for women to be truly wealthy.

 

Oh it’s a great one.

You asked and we answered! Today's episode kicks off with a great question about Bipolar and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. We talked about using medications with or without natural medicine, how these issues relate to thyroid disease and what genetic testing is super important here. We got asked a biggie: how do you actually quit foods that make you feel like garbage? You can bet we had a ton to say about that! And we fielded a belly fat question from a listener who is doing it all: grad school, single parenting and ultra-marathons. Whoa! We got tired from just reading her story!

The podcast can officially be over now cuz it's going to be hard to top this episode. OK this won't be the last episode - promise! But today we we have Dr Brooke's spirit animal: the one, the only, The KSD. 

Krista Scott-Dixon (or Dr. Krista Scott-Dixon to be exact) joins Dr Brooke today to talk all about resiliency. How you get through stuff, how you grow, how you weather the storm, how you be all like a rubber band and get totally stretched to the max and somehow bounce back. Resiliency, heartiness and how you should spend your "care units".  We also talk about Grandma Ruby, who will quite possibly be your new hero. 

In addition to being one of the smartest, sanest women in nutrition and training world, Krista has a knack for dropping these little zen bombs. I told my husband all I wanted for Christmas was to somehow be able to carry Krista around in my pocket. Listen and you'll see why. 

Krista has an amazing blog at Stumptuous.com and she is a key team member at the incredible Precision Nutrition where she creates much of the training for the growing tribe of PN Coaches.

Baby rattle roll please…….it’s pre and post-pregnancy expert and fellow GGS Advisory Board member: Jessie Mundell! There’s so much to love about this lady but perhaps most of all is her down to earth, don’t stress about it, never losing her mind sensibilities about training and motherhood. While Jessie is an expert at helping moms get healthy and fit before, during and after pregnancy (you can follow her own mommy shenanigans here) and we do touch on pelvic floor and abdominal separation healing in this episode (way more on on this topic in episode #6), today we focused on all the other pregnancy "stuff".  We share our birth stories ranging from home birth to medicated hospital delivery to emergency C-section and we dive into the stuff your girlfriends seem to forget to tell you about like the myriad of concerns with using the bathroom after delivery, what you REALLY need to bring to the hospital and how to handle the “fourth trimester” of no sleep, a unique blend of terror and bliss and getting back to exercise – and hear how poor Jessie managed to nurse and care for a newborn with an IV in her arm for an infected C section scar! The range of normal in pregnancy, delivery and motherhood is HUGE! We hope this episode helps moms to be and new moms feel better prepared for what lies ahead and seasoned moms relive those magical, crazy experiences of delivery and baby-hood.

You DO NOT want to miss this episode! The amazing Kelly Coffey shares her story of weighing over 300 pounds (and some stuff she really LOVED about it), gastric by-pass surgery, addiction (to all the things from bad relationships to booze and beyond) and coming out the other side. Having had her hit-the-wall-fall-on-your-knees breakdown-near-the-brink-of-death wake up call, let this woman talk to you about self-care. It is about more than dieting and hitting the gym. It is about finding something to love just enough to not self-destruct - and how to learn to love a little more and then a little more to keep the care going.  You will melt listening to Kelly's voice (seriously, just wait). Your heart will break and it will heal all over again as you hear her journey from self-destruction to self-love. This episode is just soooo good.

We're back with another Q&A this week and as always, you ladies ask some good questions! In this episode we talk about the best way to boost vitamin D levels and why yours may be going up and down - and should ramping up vitamin D include a tanning bed? Should you stick it out low carb if you're trying to heal your gut even if you feel terrible in terms of mood and energy? And if you have hormonal issues do you need to avoid foods like rosemary and garlic? We give you the low down estrogen in your food and the truth about phytoestrogens. And Dr Brooke shares her kindergarten update and Sarah reminds us to read her current favorite book by Pema Chodron, "When Things Fall Apart" because they do don't they? They always do.

This started off as a listener question and turned into a full episode jam packed with everything from overlooked aspects to healing the gut, how long should you really be on a restricted diet, when elimination diets aren’t enough and how this all ties into your unique hormonal imbalances like estrogen dominance, low thyroid, adrenal fatigue and Hashimoto’s. So many women have tried a Whole30, done a series of elimination diets, taken a slew of supplements, worked with several docs and are still struggling to eat without getting bloated, come off a restricted food list without falling apart or somehow feeling worse than they did before. It’s  no surprise they are wondering, “What gives??” In this episode we answer this great listener question from Laura and get into it about why your digestion is still a mess; why you haven’t yet heal your  leaky gut, IBS, etc.;  and why your food sensitivities may not be going away. Be prepared for a bit of a lesson in digestion and immunology and a ton of great take-aways to get you feeling better ASAP.

Today we made history…our first male guest! And it’s only fitting  as he is an expert in training women - and one of the reasons Sarah and I even know each other. As sweet as he is strong, it’s the one, the only: Mr. Jim Laird. Jim owns a gym in Lexington, KY and works with women of all ages to get healthy and be capable and strong in their lives. Having faced his own health crisis with Ulcerative Colitis he, like so many of us, knows what it’s like to hit the wall and have to rethink how we do everything from our training, sleep and stress to the constant pushing, pushing until something breaks and even the importance of facing our unhealthy emotions and dealing with our past.  Really, really good stuff. In this episode we hear about Jim’s group of female power lifters, the Miss Fits (who are absolutely amazing), we meander through a range of female hormone issues (missing gallbladder anyone??) and Jim gives us his best tips for getting women in their healthiest, best shape…and they may surprise you.

Adrenal “fatigue”…is it even real? Sarah and Dr Brooke certainly know many women that are too tired to get out of bed every morning and even more that are simply to wiped out to do anything more than survive let alone thrive, but do they really have tired adrenals? You're feeling lousy, you've got every symptom on every blog about adrenal fatigue, but how do you really know what’s wrong and how do you fix it? How about when you’ve tried to heal your adrenals, but you still don't feel better? How long does it take? Does it matter which stage you’re in? Wondering if you need DHEA or rhodiola – or both? Sarah and Dr Brooke dig way into this controversial topic and discuss what may be going on beyond your adrenals and stress hormones, why testing and retesting is oh so important, hidden sources of stress, other issues that frequently arise at the same time as adrenal trouble and a few very simple things that always seem to go untreated when it comes to adrenal health.  Tune in ladies, this is a great episode and we hope you’ll feel better after listening.

In this episode, Sarah and Dr Brooke welcome physical therapist and women’s health expert, Brianne Grogan. Women need to understand, celebrate and be able to comfortably talk about their amazing, complex female body as some funky stuff can happen postpartum or from training inappropriately. Spoiler Alert:  it’s never normal or commendable to pee when you exercise.  Learn about all aspects of abdominal separation (diastasis recti) and what actually makes up your pelvic floor and core as well as how you can make yours stronger. Sidestep common exercise mistakes made after giving birth or anytime your core, pelvic floor or alignment is off. We talk up close and personal about our ladybits after having babies, abdominal wraps and waist trainers, and why we need to treat birth as a trauma (albeit a beautiful one) to a woman’s body. Some intimate topics are broached – like Dr Brooke’s uterine prolapse – and some less conventional stuff come up like chakras and we go there with all of it. And after listening to this episode, if you see Sarah or Dr Brooke circling their hips at the grocery store, you’ll know why.
