PFL Weight Loss Course: 50% off with the coupon code in this podcast episode!!!!! If you are a woman who wants to lose weight, you need simple steps and goals that are achievable day by day. Taking on a very difficult program can be great, but is not always suitable to the season of our life in the present. This is why it's important to shift your mindset to one of simple actions, and know why you want to make these little changes. This is called outcomes-focused goal-setting. Place value on what you want to create in your life, and you will find yourself more easily getting there. In this episode, I will discuss four simple keys of strategy you can begin applying as soon as you're done listening: 1. Break down your total daily protein goal and distribute the portions equally between your number of meals. This will help you stabilize blood sugar throughout the day, as well as stay ahead of hunger so you minimize cravings and hunger. 2. Focus on eating the three power fats each day: avocado, olives, and healthy oil. These monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are known as 'healthier fats' and help release the hormone, CCK, which helps to tell your brain you are full. 3. Remember that all you do is about creating a caloric deficit. Don't play good cop/bad cop with non-strategic foods. Instead, find a pattern that works best for you and the way you think. 4. Pursuant to #3 being required to lose weight, listen to your fulness meter, eating to a 6 or 7 out of 10 each time you eat. You should not be full, or overly full, but satisfied to get you through to the next meal. PROTEIN POWDER RECOMMENDATIONS: 1. Whey Protein (recommended for BEST TASTE, EASE OF MIXING, and PRICE) 2. Bone Broth Protein (recommended for BEST QUALITY)

After you've had a baby (or more than one), it can be very easy to look at your postpartum body and feel negative emotion. "Bouncing back" seems to happen to the genetically lucky minority of women, and we can feel embarrassed that our bodies do not look the same as before our pregnancy.

There is so much misinformation out there, including information that is hard to understand for specific nuance! In this podcast episode, I share 5 things I WISH I would have known back when I was trying to lose weight in my 15 years of disordered eating and exercise. Though I could lecture for an hour on each topic, I'll keep my remarks concise and focused on the most critical take-aways. 1.  Meal Timing is nearly irrelevant to success.  What matters most is that calories, macros (protein, carbs, and fats) are consistent from day to day and in a SLIGHT deficit. This means for most people eating 300-400 calories fewer than your baseline intake is best. This helps you not be TOO hungry so you can sustain your efforts long enough to realize the weight loss. 2.  Reduced Fat and Low Fat foods are Terrible for Health. This myth has been eradicated in research. Full fat foods are essential for hair, skin, nails, and hormones. As I look at how I used to use these foods, the foods I liked became my staple foods which meant I was UNDER-NOURISHED with energy. In a caloric deficit I should have been getting as nutrient-dense foods as possible or else I would turn to bingeing. It's hard to sustain being HUNGRY. As a coach, I never allow women to eat fewer than 35 grams of fats in a day. And that's an EXTREME low. Most women I prefer to see around 60-70 grams fat per day where we THRIVE (and TOTALLY lose weight ;)). 3. Too much Cardio creates Weight Loss Plateaus, Burnout, and Injury I used to spend 1-2 hours on the treadmill, elliptical and bike at the gym. I subtracted the calories burned from my food eaten. If I didn't see a 0 balance, I felt guilty and worthless. Hello, body breakdown and life-destroying mindset! The right type of cardio is key for building the metabolism, training the cardiovascular system, etc. But if we're trying to "burn off unwanted calories," our focus is in the wrong area. We should be working in emotions and mindset to get the food intake and coping mechanisms in check. This takes time, but is the only way to approach this without destroying the body early. 4. Tracking Macros can be THE most Freeing Tool for Success I used to keep a food diary of the portions and foods I ate, along with what time, but this did nothing to help me become more data-driven and academic in my approach. The old way kept me grounded in irrational thoughts and beliefs to lead my habits. Though I do not recommend regularly tracking as a lifestyle, using an app like MyFitnessPal to learn what is actually in the food you eat (protein, carbs, and fats) can be freeing! Of course, this requires you to have some baseline macros goals. I can help you out with that in my Master Book of Nutrition Meal Plans and Challenges. 5. Leveraging Carbs and Fats for their Energy Needs helps Control Calories without Sabotaging Energy I had no idea that Carbs and Fats were both energy macronutrients back then. Now, I look at their different roles. Fats are for feeling full, fueling the brain and hormones, and helping absorb important vitamins. Carbs are for high intensity exercise. When we pair foods wisely (PV+ C, PV+ F, or PV+ CF) keeping calories and macros under control while maximizing their roles is easy!

Are you a restless sleeper? Always feel exhausted? Is your sleep interrupted by snoring? If so, this podcast interview is for YOU! Join Kristy Jo as her guest, Carl Lanore, takes us on a journey to better understand sleep. Over 20 years ago, Carl had a heart problem and was over 300 pounds. One of the key parts of his regaining health was focusing on improving his sleep. We're not supposed to snore. This means your airway is obstructed which raises cortisol as your body receives a stress signal. If you are snoring, Carl says you must get it addressed. This could be due to: 1. Gut problems (view Kristy Jo's program to help with this--www.PowerFoodsDetox.com--complete 1-3x) 2. Dairy Sensitivity and Nasal Obstruction (sinus infection) Carl has taken Melatonin for over 20 years. Melatonin is the only antioxidant that crosses the blood-brain barrier. It is not a sleep aid directly, but indirectly. How can you preserve your own melatonin? 1. Wear Blue Blockers in the final few hours of the day (3 hours before going to sleep). 2. Take 600 mcg/night 1/2 hour before going to sleep. Only take this if you sleep between 7-9 hours each night.  "If you don't sleep well, you will die sooner." "If you don't sleep well, you will develop disease." Carl advocates that in order to improve sleep, it must be tracked. He says sleep is like the ocean where you can stand and look out at it and think it's beautiful, but there is so much beneath the surface that you can't see. Do you need to eat in the middle of the night? You're waking up because your blood sugar is dropping dramatically. This can mean your insulin sensitivity is off and you're on the track to Diabetes. If you're someone like this, go buy some Glycine. Take 3-5 grams before bedtime. It's the most glucogenic amino acid and easily becomes glucose on demand. This will help keep your blood sugar level.

Cravings and Emotional Eating in Keto- When you are dealing with cravings that are setting you back in your health, you may feel frustrated as you can't get in control! In this podcast, Kristy Jo will discuss the difference between cravings and fixations to help YOU determine what is the cause of your cravings. Cravings are those coming as a result of physiological depletion. Fixations come from a psychological focus on food, marketing, or the lusting after food that you may have felt you can't have. We want to create a HEALTHY relationship with food, rather than deprivation and anxiety-driven relationship. Questions to ask yourself when you are experiencing a craving: Is that what your body needs? When was your last fueling? Do you need more food? Are my portions too small? Have I missed any of my supplements? Or is this a fixation?

Have you ever wondered HOW to get yourself motivated to make a change? If so, you're not alone. This is a question most people wonder about. In fact, most people feel if they could find the answer to this question they would make all the changes in their health, fitness, and weight they could! Register for the 28-day KETO Challenge with Kristy Jo: www.PowerFoodsLifestyle.com/ketochallenge In this episode, Kristy Jo will discuss four aspects of motivation: * This is an inside job. Look to yourself for answers instead of celebrities, your Instagram friends, spouses, family, or church leaders. Look inside your heart. * Make a list of logical reasons why you need to make a change. * Make a list of emotional reasons why you need to make a change. * Women--don't expect your man to validate something within you that you can't validate yourself. When ARE you "Enough?" * Why do you have a body? Have you ever investigated this question? Have you felt strongly in your heart why your beliefs are true? Use your beliefs about why you have a body to MOTIVATE YOU. For me, it all comes down to believing I will be accountable for my time and how I treated my body to God. The body isn't mine--it's on loan. What does the connection feel like when you're connected to God? It's a constant immersion--praying always.  JOIN BODY BUDDIES ONLINE Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/bodbuds Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/bodbuds YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/bodbuds  Podcast: http://www.bodybuddies.libsyn.com

Sign up for the 28-Day keto Challenge: www.PowerFoodsLifestyle.com/ketochallenge Which veggies should you be eating in #Keto Come learn in this podcast episode about how these veggies will help move metabolic waste through the body, as well as provide necessary electrolytes to you! 4 Categories of Vegetables in the Power Foods Lifestyle Leafy Greens Cruciferous Veggies Water-based Veggies Miscellaneous Veggies Do not keep vegetables out too much in keto as this can make the pH in your body go too high. This can result in a bodily condition called Ketoacidosis. Detoxification is key to move the metabolic waste out of the body. In Keto, try to get 1-2 servings of Cruciferous veggies each day (broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, kale, Brussels sprouts) -- steaming is best. What should NOT be eaten in Keto? CORN, PEAS, BEETS, Carrots should be very minimal This isn’t a question of if food is “healthy” or not…” it should be a question of asking yourself: Is keeping glucose intake and response to food in the blood sugar low? Avoid Canned Vegetables You can do Frozen Vegetables FOR SURE. They’re flash-frozen when picked, so may contain more nutrients.

Learn more about Keto than what you've heard! In order to gain control of your blood sugar, you either need to a) time your carbs properly and pair them with vegetables and protein, or b) eat in a manner that does not cause insulin surges Your brain needs 120 grams of glucose to function each day. Glucose is a sugar that is broken down from carbohydrates. What happens when your body does not have enough glucose to fuel your brain?

While you may feel it’s taboo to talk about the big B.M. (bowel movement), it’s actually a very important point of discussion in the Power Foods Lifestyle, and a topic I bring up frequently with my clients. I hope you have a great take-away from this information and say to yourself: “I need to listen to what’s going on in my body. Abnormal bowel movements and/or flatulence are my body saying, ‘Look, we have some problems. I can’t handle this.’ I need to change up what I’m eating to honor what it’s telling me.” Regular Bowel Movements BM happens in the first 2-3 hours of the day naturally Regular means 2-4x/day Well formed stools that are not difficult to pass There is not much wiping that needs to happen Dive right into the toilet bowl without much splash S-shaped as the lower part of the rectum is moving nutrients along well Should not be super stinky at all If you have constipation or diarrhea-like bowel movements, this episode is for YOU!!

When we think about healthy eating and nutrition, we think in terms of all-or-nothing. We think ‘I’ll do good today, this week, and this month,’ but if we don’t follow through (counting macros, calories, etc.) we tend to abandon those efforts. And this results in feeling like a failure. I came up with the Strategic Day to help guide our Body Buddies to make wiser decisions to fuel their bodies AND stop abandoning healthy efforts for the sake of it being 'too hard' and 'overwhelming.' I asked myself, 'What can I do to help people without making them feel they’re restricting themselves or feeling like they’re on a diet?' The Strategic Day is 15 Principles is exactly what your body needs for health. You may find if you hit these principles every day, you are full and you DON’T need that non-strategic food. You don’t need it because you’re fueled.

If you or someone you love has been dealing with migraines or a mental health condition, this Body Buddies podcast episode is for you! Patty Butts, PhD sits down with host, Kristy Jo, to discuss the details of the MTHFR gene mutation, and how nutritional choices can manifest negatively in mental health. “All mental health begins in the gut," she said. "The vagus nerve and the gut are connected.” Patty goes on in the episode to explain how she understands the emotions that can trigger depression: anger, guilt, loss of esteem, love, etc. However, she feels there is more. "Of course there are emotional components, but we are missing the boat by not having a young person who is depressed or acting out not having their blood tested. I wish this could be taught in every health class. Our young people need to know there are physiological reasons they’re depressed. Sometimes it’s genetic, high histamine, or what they’re eating." Additional symptoms people experience should cause us to check for the MTHFR gene mutation. These include: Sleep disturbance Cardiovascular Depression Fatigue Chronic Pain Mental Illness History of Miscarriages Patty Butts is a Licensed Professional Counselor, has a Ph.D. in Holistic Nutrition, an M.Ed. in counseling, a B.S. in Communications & Journalism, and is the author of "Defeating Depression & Beating the Blues," and "Free Yourself From Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. She went back to school after battling Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia for 5 years and being deathly ill. Only then did she discover she has liver cancer and a fragile immune system. With an alkaline diet where she juiced every day and did microscopy, she was able to recover fully. She discovered she had more parasites in her blood than the doctor had ever seen. Within 4 months she was in remission. Patty is a Grandmother, mother of seven, stepmother to twelve. Clinical and medical hypnotist, NLP, and Certified Emotion Code Practitioner, and Life Coach www.healingyourspirit.com www.chronicfatigueandhealingyourspirit.com, Clinical Hypnotist, Jordan Heights Holistic Mental Health, South Jordan, Utah Certified Elan Light therapist. About MTHFR MTHFR is a genetic defect. It is an enzyme that adds a methyl group to a form of folate. This process is called methylation which is important as it. These enzymes impact gene regulation, hormones, build immune system, produce energy, and protect nerve cells. 40 out of 100 people have this and don’t know it… and now 1 out of every 2 people has some form. You can’t handle folic acid when you have MTHFR, which is in everything. The government mandated folic acid (B9) added to the foods due to birth defects and added to cereals and bread. It’s also in most vitamins so look in the medicine cupboard. Take methylfolate and active Vitamin B12. Candida craves sugar, dairy, and carbohydrates. It’s a yeast in you saying ‘feed me, feed me, feed me.’ IT can cause all kinds of symptoms like fibromyalgia, fatigue, and depression by building up the lactic acid. Taking antibiotics is like having an atomic bomb going off in your stomach. They produce all kinds of candida. They kill off good bacteria and produce growth of bad bacteria.
