Ep. 1: What is Perimenopause?
What perimenopause and menopause actually are—especially since 1.1 billion women are expected to be in perimenopause by 2025! And while perimenopause and menopause is a natural process that is supposed to happen as we age, the aggressive side effects are not. The symptoms are common but you shouldn't be just trying to "survive" this time period.
Ep. 4: Thyroid Function, Menopause, & Fat Loss (feat. Coach Kirianna)
Today, I had Coach Kirianna join me to go over why thyroid function decreases, why carbs are essential to having a healthy thyroid, and how to improve thyroid function even—if you already have a thyroid disorder—so you can finally feel good and lose weight for good!
Ep. 7: Mastering Mindset for Menopause Fat Loss (feat. Coach Amy)
Mindset is a HUGE part of our ability to be successful and this is something we cover and work on with every single client that comes through our doors—and once these things click for them, their trajectory toward success increases substantially!
In this episode, Coach Amy and I went over exactly what we do with clients to lead them to success by addressing their mindset!
Ep. 2: Estrogen & Menopause Fat Loss
As we go through perimenopause and menopause our estrogen levels start to drop, it leads to hormonal symptoms (brain fog and hot flashes anyone?). But that's not the only thing that happens when estrogen drops... It makes building muscle harder, losing weight harder, and even increases our chances of developing diabetes.
So how do we combat the changes and struggles our body experiences as we see estrogen decrease?
Ep. 8: Weight Fluctuations in Menopause
In this episode, I am going to teach you a ton of reasons as to why the scale can move so much day-to-day and what you can do about it. It should also give you peace of mind that you are not gaining and losing fat that quickly.
I outline a checklist of things to consider when the scale changes so you can figure out what is actually going on in your body and take control back
Ep. 3: Insulin Resistance & Menopause
Did you know that our ability to control our blood sugars starts to decrease as we go through perimenopause? Estrogen is responsible for helping out with insulin sensitivity by helping shuttle the sugars in our blood to our muscle cells. When estrogen drops during perimenopause and onwards we see that not only does our insulin resistance go up but with that fat storage increases as well! What do we do?
