Get more protein. It’s a phrase we hear a lot, but not always one we’re super good at following through on, even when we’re trying to eat healthy. Because the reality is that the Standard American Diet most of us are used to eating is shockingly low in protein, and often even the foods we THINK are high in protein actually aren’t. And that means that there’s a very good chance most of us are walking around with a protein deficiency without even realizing it. So how much protein do you actually need? And how do you know you’re getting enough? That’s exactly what we’re diving into in today’s epi ..read more

Do you ever feel like you’re doing all the right things for your health, but you’re still not seeing the results you want? You’re definitely not alone.

They’re full of sugar and artificial ingredients and all sorts of other junk that is totally wreaking havoc on our bodies, and especially on our gut health. And gut health is a big de ..read more

If you grew up in the 80’s and 90’s like me, then you’ve probably be conditioned to believe that FAT is BAD. And honestly, I think that’s a hard bias to overcome. Because for YEARS, we were told that fat was bad for us, that it clogged our arteries and made us gain weight, that it was the root cause of all of our health problems.  And as a result, food manufacturers went out of their way to create low-fat and fat-free versions of all of our favorite foods, and we all went along with it, believing that we were making healthier choices. But here’s the thing: it turns out that was all a bunc ..read more

So here’s a fun fact for you: when it comes to losing weight, your body doesn’t actually care about your goals. It doesn’t care what size jeans you want to fit into, or what the number on the scale says, or whether or not you’re finally ready to wear a bikini this summer. But your body does have a goal. And that goal, more than anything else, is to SURVIVE. Your body’s primary purpose is SELF-PRESERVATION. To keep your heart pumping and your brain working and your blood flowing through your veins. And that might not seem all that relevant, but that’s actually why, for so many of us, losing wei ..read more

Oprah, Ozempic, and the REAL Weight Loss Revolution

Fair warning—this article might get a little bit spicy. Because I recently watched Oprah’s big weight loss special and I have a LOT of thoughts. In case you missed it, let me fill you in: The special was called, “Shame, Blame, and the Weight Loss Revolution,” and for lack of a better word, it was basically an hour-long infomercial for Ozempic and other weight loss drugs. Oprah’s “revolution” is that Ozempic is amazing, and that everyone—including children—should be clamoring to take it without hesitation, nevermind the fact that it’s ridiculously expensive, comes with a ton of scary side effec ..read more

What does it actually mean to be a Health Rebel?  It’s a term we use a lot around here, but I don’t know that we’ve ever taken the time to actually sit down and define exactly what that means. And so, just in case you’re wondering whether the term applies to you, keep reading. Because honestly, if you had asked me about this a few years ago, I don’t think I would have identified myself as a Health Rebel.
