To Get Jennifer Aniston's Body do THIS (4 things)

SHOW NOTES

This is the tell all episode on how YOU can get Jennifer Aniston’s body.

Spoiler, it’s actually not the hot tips and secret advice you’re thinking. It’s actually pretty standard, boring, fitness advice.

 "I drink a lot of water, move my body daily, try to eat whole, fresh foods, and get as much sleep as I can." - Jennifer Aniston, People Magazine

WOAH earth-shattering stuff. Am I right? Props to her, though, for not using her platform to tout some unattainable regimen and keeping it realistic. 

Look, wanting to look like a stunning celebrity, I get it. 

But wanting nutrition, fitness, and beauty advice from a naturally beautiful person…well it’s kind of ironic, to say the least. (Please hear my plea to get THE Timothy Caulfield, who’s an advocate for this  school of thought, on the show!!)

Here’s the thing…You are you! The only one. Your body is the only one of its kind to have ever existed!!! Why would you wanna trade it for someone else’s????

Because no matter how great you are at Jen’s 4 basic tips for her hot bod….you’ll never have HER hot bod. You’ll have your hot bod.

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • Jennifer Anniston’s 4 tips to a hot bod.
  • Celebrating your body!
  • Should you trust celebrity beauty advice?

Are those the 4 tips you thought you’d hear? Are you disappointed that they aren't what you thought? What does Jennifer Anniston do differently than YOU and what are you going to do about it? Let me know on Insta!

Episode 45: Growing Up In A Doomsday Cult (while Black) with LaNisa Frederick

EPISODE 45: 

Growing Up In A Doomsday Cult (while Black) with LaNisa Frederick

Growing Up In A Doomsday Cult (while Black) with LaNisa Frederick

SHOW NOTES

Let’s have a light chat about cults with LaNisa Frederick.

She’s an award-winning actor, writer, content creator, voiceover artist and black survivor of Doomsday Cult, WorldWide Church of God.

Let’s get the lay of the land. What exactly is a cult? You might find isolation, charismatic leaders, financial arrest, and consequences for leaving, but LaNisa’s experience and research say time and society are the judge.

So anything can be a cult? These days, language is tricky, but there doesn't have to be an extreme and devastating end to make it a cult.

I even had my eyes opened to the existence of a diet cult! Woah who knew Jesus said you had to be skinny?

Speaking of the variety of cults out there, it's important to note that no one wants to join a cult. Vulnerabilities, life circumstances, and different origins contribute to everyone's story.

Like LaNisa says, even though black and brown experiences aren’t often talked about, “It’s not just white people shit.”.

During our conversation, you can’t help but laugh. LaNisa wants to open the discussion of black and brown cult experiences with comedy.

Laughter is a source of healing and by using comedy, LaNisa can heal AND teach

Tune in to the full episode for more about LaNisa’s story and be on the lookout for when comedy and Cult stories will collide with LaNisa’s podcast, Black and CULTivated, coming September 2024.

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • What’s a cult? And can virtually anything be one?
  • Opening up the conversation about black and brown cult experiences.
  • Surviving the WorldWide Church of God while black.
  • What draws people into cults?

Cults don’t have to be as infamous and devastating as Jonestown or Heaven's Gate to be dangerous. I was so surprised to learn about the getting skinny for Jesus diet cult! What shocked you the most? And what do YOU think makes a cult? Let me know on Insta!

Episode 44: Goal: Back Away From The Booze with Ruari Fairbairns

EPISODE 44: 

Goal: Back Away From The Booze with Ruari Fairbairns

Goal: Back Away From The Booze with Ruari Fairbairns

SHOW NOTES

Have you ever had a whispering voice in the back of your mind *alcohol is holding you back*?

Maybe the amount you consume on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis contributes to your answer. Like, hey, I’m a mom, and I need my one glass of wine at the end of the week.

Okay, fair enough, but what if I told you that even that habit shows alcohol is holding you back?

“Oognah…. I’m not pouring whiskey into my coffee. I’m fine.” Right. Maybe you are *fine*, but don’t you want to be better than fine? The best version of yourself, even?

You are going to love this conversation with Ruari Fairbairns, a former oil broker and professional partier, who created One Year No Beer.

Ruari’s entire life changed when he took a break from alcohol. In his own words, he became fitter, faster, healthier, a better dad, and a better husband. And he wasn’t tossing them back first thing in the morning either.

So what gives? Why is alcohol holding you back? Ruari explains the science behind alcohol's effect on the body and mind and how it actually worsens the things you use it for.

Stress? Worse with alcohol? Depression? Worse. Self confidence? Worse. And other things too… It's likely your struggles with weight and health problems are directly contributed to by alcohol use, even in small amounts.

In his programs One Year No Beer and Complete Control, he rebukes the idea of abstinence as the solution, and dives into the underlying causes of compulsive behavior to help people mitigate stress and control their alcohol use.

You don’t have to get sober (I know that feels like a bad word), and you don’t have to be the boring anti-social person.

Just start simple. Drink less. Take control of your alcohol use. It could turn your whole life around.  

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • One Year No Beer, a challenge to take a break from alcohol.
  • Is alcohol actually making your stress worse?
  • Who is the victim of the highest rate of peer pressure to drink?
  • How can a break from alcohol impact your health and daily life?

WOAH. You can feel the heart from Ruari in this episode. Did this one strike a chord? What steps are you going to take to drink less? Let me know on Insta!

Episode 43: How Not To Age with Dr. Michael Greger

EPISODE 43: 

How Not To Age with Dr. Michael Greger

How Not To Age with Dr. Michael Greger

SHOW NOTES

This is one of those moments where I am jumping up and down like a giddy teenager. I got to interview Dr. Michael Greger, a physician and internationally recognized speaker on nutrition.

You’ve probably read or heard of his books, How Not to Die and How Not to Diet but today we’re talking about How Not Age. (Ummm, aging is inevitable, right? Maybe not?)

Dr. Greger’s research cuts through all the nutritional noise and nonsense, and he comes equipped with some really surprising knowledge bombs.

Alright, I know you’re with me in the thought; aging is natural… Just embrace it. Should we? According to Dr. Greger, aging could actually be considered a disease just as natural as tuberculosis or the common cold; should we embrace those too?

In the barrage of pills and potions to cure every ailment and tighten every wrinkle, the cold truth is they won’t save you.

The #1 killer in America? The American Diet and, coming in second, tobacco. HEY! That’s good news; that means we can wake up, be accountable and actually do something about it.

When talking about reducing aging and living a longer life, Dr. Greger explains the Blue Zones. Areas around the world have recorded longer longevity. Well, what’s their secret?

The secret is in the sauce—the plant-based sauce, that is. People in these Blue Zones eat a primarily plant-based diet, and that makes all the difference.

I could rattle off a bunch of mind-blowing research-based facts, like, as far as longevity goes, a burger = 2 cigarettes, or the truth is, spinach makes much more of an impact than extra protein, but you have to listen to all the mind-blowing goodness yourself.

Prepare to be triggered. Prepare to question everything you know. And also, prepare yourself to be equipped with the knowledge that could really stop aging in its tracks.

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • Is aging a disease?
  • What are people in the Blue Zones eating that’s making them live longer?
  • What is the number #1 killer in America?
  • Nutritional guidance that can literally stop aging?
  • Misconceptions about your diet, who should you trust?

I’ll be the first to admit, there were some tidbits in this episode that left me uneasy and a little defensive. What surprised you the most and what are you going to do with that info? Let me know on Insta!

Episode 42: Healthy Habits For ADHD Women

Healthy Habits For ADHD Women

Healthy Habits For ADHD Women

SHOW NOTES

Imagine my surprise when I found my name at the center of a heated discussion on Reddit and it wasn't in the Super Healthy Hot Babes forum. No. It was the ADHD Women forum. What??

My tips for a healthy habit loop sat at the top of a thread, and the responses? Women in tears, angry, and ready to throw fists.

Listen, I think they had every reason to feel that way, and I love a push to learn more. *In walks guest and ADHD Expert Brooke Schnittman stage left*.

Brooke is an awesome author, podcast host, entrepreneur and ADHD woman herself.

She blew my mind and really changed how I will approach and understand people with ADHD from now on. And I’m not one to make bold claims (wait, yes, I am), and I think you will too.

So let's get to the nitty gritty. Can ADHD women (or men or children) form healthy habits?

Well yes. But Brooke explains that the need to form habits goes way beyond fitness or health goals, habits become crucial to an ADHD person's very basic needs. Okay, I will eat my words when I say that brushing your teeth isn't a chore.

When it comes down to it, ADHD women rebel at the nearest sign of structure, but the truth is they need it to thrive.

Structure, schedules, routines, microchanges, tools, rewards, medication—these are the mix bag of things ADHD women need to make things happen.

But don’t forget about the superpowers; people with ADHD have these internal processes and hyperfixations that can totally outdo us neurotypicals. It’s a double edged sword.

Tune in to hear how ADHD looks different based on your gender or age, common signs, and the accepted testing formats.

And if you were listening to this episode and thinking, FINALLY SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS ME as you break down to your knees in answered prayer.

Then, hey, this one was for you! Reach out to Brooke, reach out to a coach, find a way to get your life structured, and secure those habits in a way that helps you thrive.

It’s not as easy as brushing your teeth; it’s as HARD as brushing your teeth, but you CAN do it.
 

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • How does the habit loop work for people with ADHD?
  • How does ADHD differ in women compared to men and children?
  • How can people with ADHD structure their lives for better performance?
  • What tools and supports are available to those with ADHD?

Yes, I can say that after this experience, I can see how it may not be easy to brush your teeth or take a shower. There is so much more that goes into it. Do you have ADHD? How do you create healthy habits and support yourself with structure? Let me know on Insta!
