Here in Podcast Land, the Shorkey sisters are showcasing how strength starts on the inside. And as much as they are passionate about vegan health and fitness, they're using this platform to really focus on personal growth and helping others to develop healthy relationships with food and their bodies. All the while, sprinkling each and every episode with that smart-assed, annoyingly vegan..
Anyone who knows anything about me knows just how OBSESSED I (Sam) am with BLOATING. (Or preventing being bloated I should say.) Yes, since immersing myself in the fitness world circa 2013, it's basically become my life's (self-absorbed) mission to avoid looking and feeling bloated at all costs! And this week on the podcast, I'm sharing all of my best tips, tricks, foods & supplements to help you listeners lose the water weight and confidently rock a bikini (or speedo) on the beach this summer! Here we go!
Well here's an episode that for once, Sarah might actually be the bigger "expert." And that's because she is one of very few "digital minimalists" that exist in 2019. Sarah does not own a smart phone nor does she have an Instagram account. And yet, I'm sure we all know someone who can't go to the bathroom without their iPhone in hand. Sidenote: eww. Yes, 'tis a timely topic that we've been wanting to address for a long time! Is checking your likes the new smoking? We've got all kinds of scary stats to share plus some tips on how to become a digital minimalist. Enjoy!
We all know how important sleep is for both our bodies and our minds. It is, after all, when our muscles repair themselves so we can get JACKED! Sadly though, the stresses and distractions of modern-day life and our non-stop, hectic lifestyles make it harder and harder to get a good night's sleep. Well we've got you and your zzzzzz's covered on this week's podcast! From figuring out your animal "chronotype" according to THE Sleep Doctor (Dr. Michael Breus) to our fave, all-natural sleep aids and technologies that will spark longer, more restful sleeps. It's ALL going down (like your head on a pillow) via this celebratory 50th episode of the JOTB podcast!
For those who haven't yet read my new juicy blog post or seen my half-naked instagram pic, I've got some BIG NEWS! Your beloved podcast host: Ms. "Jacked on the Beanstalk" is now sprouting her own little "beanie baby!" And nope, it was NOT planned hence why I've waited a solid seven months to spill these beans! If you're looking for an insightful, educational, information-packed podcast, then please skip this one. Although we do discuss ways to overcome shame AND perform an epic rendition of Creed's "With Arms Wide Open." But I fully admit there are no valuable takeaways from this episode so listen at your own discretion.
As a vegan coach, the #1 question I always get asked is "how to lose weight?" The answer might not be quick or easy but what better topic to address on this week's podcast than metabolism and more specifically, how to speed up metabolism and torch body fat!? From the best metabolism-boosting vegan foods to the fat-burning supplements that actually work, we're covering it ALL on this week's episode.
Happy Valentine's Day! And what a perfect day to discuss boners and orgasms! That's right! Not only are we sharing the history of this sexy holiday but we're also diving into the complex world of the female orgasm. PLUS the best foods men can eat to help prevent premature ejaculation AND erectile dysfunction. We're even doing a big VEGAN SEX PACK giveaway from Glyde America to one lucky podcast listener. It's all on this episode so don't miss it!
Are you guilty of turning your emotional problems into physical problems? There is obviously a HUGE link between our emotional state and our physical appearance and that's precisely what we're discussing on the podcast this week! Yes, it's another self-love episode (don't roll your eyes!) And we're sharing our best tips and "mental exercises" on how to face our deepest truths, stop stuffing down our emotions with food and actually start loving ourselves! Enjoy!
It's been a while since Sarah and I chatted amongst ourselves without interviewing a guest. So this week, we chose a podcast topic that we felt confident in tackling ourselves. And a topic that has been suggested to us by a few listeners. This week we're talking all about MOTIVATION. And more specifically, the common roadblocks we see that kill motivation and how to summon the ambition needed to stick to a clean eating plan or get our asses into the gym when life starts getting in the way. But mostly we just make fun of Sarah's depressing "workout corner." Enjoy!
Recently I visited New York City and two cool things happened. 1) I came home with a giant suitcase full of Trader Joe's High Protein Vegan Burgers (sadly not available in Canada.) And 2) I interviewed fellow vegan coach & fitness model Kelly Schlegel of Kelly O. Fitness and discovered that we are actually the same person therefore instant BFFs. I loved this bad ass vegan babe so much that I knew she'd make for a great podcast guest. So here 'tis my totally unplanned, last-minute interview with my new vegan bestie Kelly.
Happy holidays, vegan fit crew! Yes, 'tis the season for family, friends, cozy sweaters and a bottomless pit of food everywhere we turn. But who doesn't love this time of year?! We Shorkey sisters sure do! And we're using this episode to spread a little holiday cheer and share our top ten tips for avoiding unwanted weight gain amidst the many holiday hog fests. And lucky you -- we're also singing TWO songs on this one (well, technically "caroling...") Now put on your Santa hat, gather 'round the Christmas tree and let's get feisty and festive, baby!
