Release Weight Naturally And Sustainably Using These 3 Tips

Release Weight Naturally And Sustainably Using These 3 Tips

  In this week’s episode of Whole Woman Wednesday, you’ll learn my three best tips to naturally and sustainably lose weight. These are the same principles I followed to lose 50 lbs that I gained during my second pregnancy and that I teach my patients and nutrition program participants around the world. (If you’re interested in reading more about my weight loss journey, click here.) You’ll notice that I don’t talk about exercise in this video, and while important for a well-rounded healthy lifestyle, exercise actually contributes very little to losing weight. Weight loss is about 80% what you eat, and only 20% exercise.  If you want more guidance and support to achieve your weight release goals, balance your hormones, and feel better in your body, click here to learn about my 28-day online nutrition program, Wonder Woman. This program is wonderful for postpartum mamas, or any woman who is seeking to balance her hormones, clean up her diet, and release weight.   Good news!    I have a brand new...

Improve Your Digestion With These 3 Simple Tips

Improve Your Digestion With These 3 Simple Tips

  Welcome to Whole Woman Wednesday! Today’s topic is improving your digestion. In Chinese medicine, digestion is the main indicator that determines the state of your overall health. Many times, improving your health (or fertility, or immune system, or mood) starts with improving your digestion. A healthy digestion means that you don’t get gas, bloating, heartburn or feel sluggish after a meal, but rather feel energized and satiated. It also means having 2-3 well-formed bowel movements per day. When you’re digestive fires are burning at the optimal level, meaning your digestion is strong, you don’t experience strong cravings that aren’t good for you, like sweets, and greasy fried foods, and you are able to easily maintain a healthy weight. From a mental/emotional standpoint, a weak digestion in Chinese medicine means that you tend to worry, obsess, or overthink, and find it difficult to get moving, either physically or metaphorically. If any of this sounds familiar, today’s episode is for you! Click play above to learn my three favorite Chinese medicine tricks you can...
