Our upcoming book Hangry is out in just a month! In today’s episode we share the meat of the book: our systems. These straightforward, easy to remember and implement framework not only give you a foundation and a starting point but also teach you how to listen to your hormones and understand how to adjust our framework to better suit your unique hormonal imbalances. So very cool right? We cover ACES (the talk of cortisol, insulin, stress and blood sugar), RAMP (how to know if you’re over-exercising), CRAMPS (what your female hormones are telling you) and the foundations it all rests on: our 5 Habits and the 5 Pillars. This episode is a thank you and a virtual hug to all of the women we’ve had the honor to share our work with. We hope you enjoy this big picture and bit of a sneak-peak into Hangry!

(Language warning) Lauren is back with her straight forward, radically honest style sharing her tips for cutting through our own crap “to human” better. Though her development of the Handel Method and now InnerU coaching program, Lauren has worked with everyone from the stay at home mom to the celebrities and CEOs and she reminds us we are all more alike in our “stuff” than it seems. We have an honest conversation about being the jerks we call can be, relationships and doing the hard, hard thing of being 100% responsible for our lives. Again, there’s some cursing in this episode as Lauren brings her New Yorker, direct style so if that’s not your jam maybe skip this episode. But hopefully even if that’s not your style you tune in and get something so useful from this episode!

Fertility Awareness Educator and Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner Lisa Hendrickson-Jack joins us to talk about her new book: The Fifth Vital Sign. In this episode we debunk the myth that regular ovulation is only important when you want children and recognize that the menstrual cycle much like heart rate or body temperature is a vital sign for women. When things are off with our period it alerts us that something is wrong with our hormones.

 

Lisa shares with us how to track cervical mucus, cervical position and other key signs of ovulation so that you can not only enhance fertility OR avoid becoming pregnant with this method of non-hormonal birth control, but also how to better understand the signals your female hormones are sending you.

 

You can learn more about Lisa and get her book here.

Christa is an inspiration. She is also a strength coach, gym owner, wife, mother and a woman who has suffered and endured every parent's biggest fear...the loss of a child.

 

In this episode Christa shares with us her experience of getting a fatal diagnosis of DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) for her daughter Lea when she was just six years old. She bravely shared this experience on her blog and on social media and allowed us all to see the raw reality of her painful journey.

 

In this interview she shares with us how she coped, how she’s rebuilding, how it affected her marriage and the impact it’s had on the parenting of her other two daughters. We’re so grateful to Christa for joining us and reminding us to be more present with those we love, stay committed to our true priorities and remain grateful for what we have each day because life can change in a second.

The million dollar question right? Well it’s easier to answer than you may think. Despite whatever shiny new workout is dangled in front of your face, no matter what results your girlfriends have had, no matter what used to work for you in the past, you must be able to size up an exercise plan and see how it may work for YOUR unique hormonal landscape RIGHT NOW.

 

Luckily we have THE tool for you: the hormone hierarchy. We’ve touched on this framework in various shows but in this episode we dig way into how to utilize this tool when it comes to your training. This is the same structure we teach in our upcoming book Hangry, which is available for pre-order at all online book retailers! THANK YOU all so much for your support, we can’t wait to share this book with the women of the world.

Functional and Naturopathic doctor Jolene Brighten joins us to talk all about hormonal birth control and Post Birth Control Syndrome. Over half of the women taking birth control are using it for reasons other than preventing pregnancy and women are rarely given the full scoop about the risks of the pill when it’s prescribed. We talked about women and the pill through the decades ranging from its impact on normal puberty to whether or not a woman going through perimenopause should consider the pill.

 

This was a super fun conversation with Dr Brighten jam packed with info that all woman need to know both for ourselves and for our daughters.

In this fourth mini-episode we break down the fourth habit in our 54321 framework and that’s at least 2 liters of water per day. We talk about the importance of this basic habit BUT we also give some great tips for making this habit happen in a way you enjoy! And if you’re a woman with insulin or cortisol issues you may find you lose that water as quickly as you drink it so we troubleshoot that for you as well (hint: electrolytes to the rescue!).

 

As we have in the preceding mini-episodes in this series we also touch on one of our 5 Pillars. In this show we talked about a biggie: Be Your Best Friend. One of the best tools for this is tuning into the tone of the voice in your head so we talk about how to do this and more tips to master this pillar.

 

As promised, here’s the link to more info on choosing a water filter that will meet your unique needs.

 

We’ll be back with one more mini episode on our last habit tomorrow but be sure you join us for our January Hangry B*tches group where we can help you better customize each of these 5 Habits. Details and registration here.  

Jan 4, 2019

Last one! In this final episode of our mini-series on our 54321 framework of the 5 Habits from our upcoming book HANGRY we wrap it all up for you and go through this final aspect of the program: 1 daily commitment to REAL self-care.

 

We also cover our final pillar: Be Who You Are and talk about three tangible ways you can commit to real self-care with sleep, meditation and mindset every day.

 

It was our goal to give you some perspective for the New Year and help you lay a solid foundation for the months – and years – to come! Again, each of these 5 habits can and should be customized to your unique hormonal issues today and as they change throughout your lifetime, but implemented as is they give you a great place to start.

We're back with habit #3 in our 54321 template which is 3 strength training sessions per week. These days it's way less unusual to see women lifting heavier weights and reaping the benefits of strength training but not only are not all women in the know about this life changing, hormone happy making, inflammatory lowering, anti-aging, confidence building habit BUT many are confused where to start or scared of getting hurt, feel worse when they exercise or their intense strength training is tanking their adrenals and thyroid. The strength training templates in our book aim to fix every one of those problems!
 
We dive into where to start if you're new to strength training and most importantly how to adjust your training to follow the hormone hierarchy in this episode. It's an important one so we hope you listen in and learn a ton. We also cover our third of our 5 Pillars: Full Engagement Living. So much valuable info in this one, don't miss it!

The second episode in this mini-series is about the second habit in our 54321 framework: 4 meals a day. There are fewer aspects to nutrition that need to be more customized than how many carbs to eat, what meals to eat them at and how many times a day you should eat in general. With some experts advocating lots of small frequent meals and others singing the praises of fasting and keto it’s hard to know what YOU should do. It all comes down to dealing with your most delicate hormonal issues first, starting with this framework and making adjustments that work for YOU.


In this show we talk about how to know which adjustments to make to this 4 meal a day starting place and we touch on our second pillar: Opt Out Of Overwhelm.

Happy New Year!!! While 2018 was a tough one for us in many ways we’re so excited to be kicking off 2019 with you all! We’re looking forward to our book release in June and wanted to help you start the New Year off right, with no fear, no panic to jump on a cleanse or detox, no doing anything that will hinder your hormones or happiness in the long run. Rather we want you to start 2019 with a solid foundation for joy and health so we’re doing a series of mini-episodes that breakdown our 5 Pillars and 5 Habits in more detail to help you better find what works for you this year!

We’ve talked about the 5 Pillars a lot but less so about our core, customizable 5 Habits that follow an easy to remember template of 54321. Our pillars and habits give you a very simple framework as a starting place and with these mini-episodes or joining us in our Hangry B*tches group you’ll learn to customize them to suit your unique metabolic and hormonal issues.

 

Join us in our next live group where we walk you through our entire program starting January 16! And save $50 if you pre-order our book – win-win!  Get details and registered here.


In this episode we talk about our first pillar: Finding and Commit to What Works For You and our first habit: take 5 walks per week.

 

Happy New Year!!

In this episode we covered a topic we haven’t broached yet: progesterone dominance. Typically it’s estrogen dominance that’s a hormone trouble maker but you can also get too much of a good thing like progesterone as well. We cover the symptoms and causes of this less common issue. In this show we also tackled a very big issue: what do you do when your work or just your preference requires lots of social events and there’s always booze, gluten, diary, sugar and other foods you may feel better avoiding?
