Episode #60 // Eating disorder recovery, thriving in menopause, navigating perimenopause,  fueling for power and performance without restrictionCW: Eating disorderIf you have questions about perimenopause, menopause, or how you can eat what you want without adhering to any rules and still perform well as an athlete, do not go anywhere, this episode was MADE for you. Today I have Selene Yeager, the host of the Hit Play Not Pause podcast, content manager at Feisty Menopause, and best-selling professional health and fitness writer, including the co-author of ROAR and Next Level with Dr. Stacy Sims. She lives what she writes as an NASM-certified personal trainer, Pn1 certified nutrition coach, off-road racer, and former All-American Ironman triathlete. In this interview Selene discusses her history with an eating disorder- and consider this a content warning, she gets into some graphic detail - and how she ultimately healed her relationship with food. She also talks about the evolution of her career as an athlete, how she’s come to embrace gravel biking and bikepacking, and how both her approach to training and her outlook have changed since going through menopause.  Selene also shares some beautiful insights on how a perimenopausal mom and an adolescent daughter can not just survive but thrive while living in the same household- you’ll definitely want to listen all the way through to the end for that little gem.

Episode #59 // Covering the first principle of Intuitive Eating: Reject the Diet Mentality, part 3- the importance of curiosity I'm back with a solo episode on intuitive eating, discussing the first principle: Reject the Diet Mentality. (Quick backstory if you're new here: Intuitive Eating is a practice Evelyn Tribole and Eileen Resch originally presented in the 90's in the book Intuitive Eating, is now in its 4th edition.)This is actually the third in a three-part series on the first principle of Intuitive Eating (the first two as well as an episode where I go over all the basics of IE are linked below). Why am I devoting three entire episodes to one principle? Because this is a hard one! Rejecting the diet mentality means undoing all the brainwashing we've been exposed to since basically forever. That means unlearning all the implicit and explicit messages we've ever absorbed, from friends, family, teachers, coaches, media, ad copy, product descriptions, and healthcare providers, etc telling us that thinner is better, weight loss is healthy, and that food is attached to morality (and mortality for that matter). Honestly, 300 episodes wouldn't be enough to cover this one topic. But in this third (and final) episode on Reject the Diet Mentality, I give you three strategies to help you undo some of that programming. First, though, I share a story (the Great Broom Heist of 2007) for the dual purposes of (hopefully) making you laugh and demonstrating just how easily we can dupe ourselves into believing our own lies. LinksEpisode 44: What is Intuitive Eating?Episode 47: Intuitive Eating Principle 1: Reject the Diet Mentality (Part 1)Real Fit Episode 54: IE Principle 1: Reject the Diet Mentality (Part 2)Want to stop dieting AND stop hating your body?💌 Subscribe to the Real Nourished newsletter and get my FREE guide, 11 Things You Can Do Right Now to Feel Better About Your Body!).💖 Click here to learn about my 1:1 intuitive eating coaching services.Let's Connect!WebsiteLinkedInInstagramTikTokTwitterSupport the show
Episode #58 // Alison Rothman, Body-Centered Holistic Empowerment Coach and yoga practitioner // How can we use what's already inside of us to heal from trauma and cultivate resilience? TW: trauma, gun violence, eating disorders, addiction  I’m so excited to bring you a conversation with Body-Centered Holistic Empowerment Coach and yoga practitioner Alison Rothman.  Alison is a fellow Boulderite and podcaster- her show is called Embodied and Awake, and she’s also the mom of a teenage boy. Through healing from her her experiences with trauma, addiction, and an eating disorder (please consider this your trigger warning), she learned to reconnect with her true self and has since made it her mission to share the tools she used in her own healing journey to help others in her practice. In this episode, she shares her story and how, after decades of being disconnected from herself, a practice of embodiment led her back to herself and how that has literally saved her life and her sanity over and over again. She shares what it means to be embodied, why it matters, and how you can start becoming more embodied right now.If you know me at all you know I am passionate about intuitive eating and one of the reasons why is that every time we restrict our food or deny our appetites we are essentially training ourselves to disconnect from our true selves. But our true self is where all our power is. It’s the home of our, emotions, our authentic voice and our intuition, and we NEED to honor it in order to live a life that’s aligned with our values and to fully express our gifts. READY TO STOP STRESSING ABOUT FOOD, EXERCISE, AND YOUR BODY?💌 Subscribe to the Real Nourished newsletter and get my FREE guide, 11 Things You Can Do Right Now to Feel Better About Your Body!).💖 Click here to learn about my 1:1 coaching services.Support the show

No matter what you've seen on Instagram, intuitive eating is about so much more than eating whatever you want whenever you want. It's not the hunger/fullness diet. It's not license to eat donuts all day every day or permission to never eat a vegetable again. Intuitive eating (which is based on the eponymous book by dietitians Evelyn Tribole and Eileen Resch, originally published in the 90s), is based on ten principles — the first of which is Reject the Diet Mentality. This episode is part of a series on Intuitive Eating where I'm exploring each of the ten principles. I've already released two episodes in the series; if you haven't heard them yet, you can check them out: Episode 44: What is Intuitive Eating?Episode 47: Intuitive Eating Principle 1: Reject the Diet Mentality (Part 2) While episode 47 focuses on what the diet mentality is, in this episode, I'm talking about why it's such an important aspect of intuitive eating, including some research that highlights the futility of dieting/intentional weight loss, the (weak) link between weight and health, and the importance of healthy behaviors (regardless of weight). Links to researchTONS of studies on the Intuitive Eating website: https://www.intuitiveeating.org/resources/studies/Intentional weight loss typically is not sustainable and most dieters will return to their baseline weight within 5.5 years: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/17606960/Finnish twins study: https://www.nature.com/articles/ijo2011160Swiss researchers find weight loss can lead to net weight gain: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41366-020-0547-1#:~:text=Several%20large%2Dscale%20prospective%20studies,than%20in%20those%20with%20obesityStudy authors fail to find a consistent relationship between higher BMI and mortality: https://www.cell.com/iscience/fulltext/S2589-0042(21)00963-9#%20Study finds significant segments of "normal weight" people have markers for cardiometabolic issues, while significant segments of people who are considered "overweight" or "obese" have none of these markers: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18695075/.Ready to stop stressing about food, exercise, and your body?💌 Subscribe to the Real Nourished newsletter for evidence-based tools to reduce food-related anxiety, improve body image, and embrace exercise as a form of nourishment - not punishment... and get my FREE guide, 11 Things You Can Do Right Now to Feel Better About Your Body!💖 Click here to learn about my 1:1 coaching services. Let's Connect!  LinkedInInstagramTikTokTwitterSupport the show
Christine Yu is an award-winning journalist whose work focuses on the intersection of sports science and women athletes. Her writing has appeared in Outside, The Washington Post, Runner’s World, and other publications. She’s a lifelong athlete and yoga teacher who loves running, surfing, and skiing. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.Her new book, Up to Speed: The Groundbreaking Science of Women Athletes, masterfully blends narrative and science to explain what we know about female athletic performance, why women have historically been left out of the research, why it matters, and what it would take to fill to the gap.I’ve read so many books that felt like an article or two with about 50k extra words thrown in. This was absolutely NOT one of them. The only thing better than reading the book — which covers everything from the history of the sports bra (originally slated to be called the Jock Bra- who knew!?) to how your period can affect your performance — was talking to Christine herself. We dug into some of the book's content as well as: How she scored the book dealWhat drove Christine to write the bookThe self-doubt, occasional procrastination, copious reporting, and meticulous research that were part of the process The sticky note that got her through drafting the manuscript and edits What it took for Christine to adopt a healthier approach to eatingWhy the current state of women's sports nutrition science is in direct conflict with diet cultureI thought I knew a lot about women's sports science but it turns out I'd only scratched the surface. Christine's book is a must-read for every woman athlete out there. Connect with ChristineInstagram @cyu888 // Twitter @cyu888 // Get the book!| www.christinemyu.com/bookReady to stop stressing about food, exercise, and your body?💌 Subscribe to the Real Nourished newsletter and get my FREE guide, 11 Things You Can Do Right Now to Feel Better About Your Body!).💖 Click here to learn about my 1:1 coaching services. Let's Connect!  My website // LinkedIn // InstagramSupport the show

When queer athlete, writer, and influencer Shilletha “Dragonsky” Curtis lost her job right when the pandemic lockdowns started, the depression and anxiety she’d been living with for years kicked in — hard. She experienced panic attacks, and ended up doing intensive outpatient treatment and when her program ended, the New Jersey native noticed everyone seemed to be talking about hiking. As a New Jersey native, hiking wasn’t something Shilletha had done or knew much about. But she followed her curiosity, first to the trails of the Garden State, and eventually to thru-hike all 2190 miles of the Appalachian Trail. It’s a feat that most never attempt and that many never complete. And as a queer woman of color, Shilletha navigated a set of challenges that most backpackers don’t. Today she’s on track to be the first lesbian Black woman to complete the Triple Crown of hiking and her memoir, Mountain of the Moon, is scheduled to release in 2024. In our interview she shares her experiences with navigating mental health issues on and off the trail, how a Facebook post served as the catalyst for her entry into the world of freelance writing and later signing a book deal for her forthcoming memoir and becoming a sponsored backpacker, coping with racism on the Appalachian Trail, dealing with injuries, and so much more. Connect with Shilletha Instagram | TikTok | YouTubeLinks/ResourcesUnfuck your Brain Real Fit interview with Kriste Peoples Ready to heal your relationship with food, exercise, and your body?💌 Subscribe to the Real Nourished newsletter and get my FREE guide, 11 Things You Can Do Right Now to Feel Better About Your Body!).  💖 Click here to learn about my 1:1 coaching services.

On this episode, Rabbi Jessica Kessler Marshall and I discussed all the good stuff — including her love of cycling and snacks, the power of nature, the importance of ritual, and what happens when she tunes into her heart. Jessica is a cyclist, a hiker, and a general lover of the outdoors. She’s also a rabbi with a passion for writing, creating, and helping others to inject rituals into their routines, which we are definitely going to talk about as it pertains not just to spirituality but to everyday life and sport. As a rabbi, she moved away from a traditional role in a synagogue to forge a different kind of path that pulls from a variety of traditions and really highlights her many gifts. (Which I LOVE!!) As a spiritual leader and coach, she guides participants into deeper connection with Spirit by moving beyond intellect or logic, to access soul-wisdom so their path lights up with ease, vitality, abundance, and JOY! Championing spiritual inclusivity via creative rituals, intentional reflections, mindfulness practices, and the wisdom of the natural world, Jessica guides with humor, authenticity, and Divine presence.This one is a must-listen for anyone who wants to create more joy and meaning in their life. Connect with JessicaWebsiteFacebook group Divine Winks FacebookInstagramYouTubePodcast- Sacred StoriesIn this episode, we talk about…Jessica’s relationship with food; why Weight Watchers was so attractive to her at a tumultuous time in her life and how she let go of food rules. The week-long Hazon cycling trip in Israel that was her intro to road bikingHer passion for open faced nut butter and jelly sandwichesThe bike ride she was on when she knew she had to quit her job and move to a different state. Leaving a dream position as a congregational rabbi to work for herself in a non-traditional role.   The one thing Jessica can rely on to supercharge the growth of her businessSetting boundaries as an entrepreneurWhy rituals matter and how anyone can imbue their life with more of them. For full episode details CLICK HERE Sign up for my newsletter and get a FREE GIFT, 11 Things You Can Do Right Now to Feel Better About Your BodyReady to heal your relationship with food, exercise, and your body?
