    Ep. 110: Debunking Vegan Myths & Why We Need to Eat More Plants with Kathy Davis

    1:18:47

    We’re so excited to share this episode with Kathy Davis all about busting vegan myths and why you should be adding in more plants. Now, carnivores - don’t click off! While Kathy is a vegan herself and has written plant-based cookbooks, she believes what we really need to do is just add more plants (even if you’re still eating meat.) During this episode, Kathy gives us helpful ideas on how to incorporate more plants, why carbs aren’t the enemy and reframe the way you think about food. She takes us through how she makes plant-based living work while living on the road and why it doesn’t have to be difficult! We can’t wait for y’all to listen in to this episode with Kathy! In today’s episode we chat about: How Kathy got started with a plant-based diet. Junk vegan vs. plant-based… not all vegan food is created equal (+marketing in the food industry.) Intention over perfect … let’s just add in more plants! What is the issue with sugar? Insulin resistance - carbs are an easy out! Don’t blame good carbs. What about vitamin deficiencies and the elusive protein problem? How to focus on adding more plants and be less afraid of carbs. What life is like living on the road as a biz owner of VegInspired.

    Ep. 109: The Harmful Effects of Diet Culture andHealing Your Relationship with Food with Sarah Stites

    1:09:21

    We’re all slammed with diet culture every single day, whether we’re consciously connecting it or not. But did you know that food choices are about biology, not willpower? That’s why we’re excited to bring on Sarah Stites, CEO and co-founder of Wavelength. Wavelength is a modern program for healthy eating that combines personalized nutrition with mental health tools. Sarah knows first-hand the shame that comes with eating and weight-related issues — she was diagnosed with PCOS and prediabetes as a teen, gaining 100lbs in a year. While diet programs relied on guilt and body shame, her mom — a PhD with a masters degree in nutrition science — helped her take a more compassionate approach. By using principles from behavioral neuroscience, addiction, nutrition, and mindfulness, Sarah was able to understand the root cause of her habits, reverse her prediabetes, and lose 150lbs. That was over ten years ago. Now, Sarah leads the Wavelength team to scale her mom’s holistic solution to millions of people. She is a fierce advocate for “more science, less blame,” and pleasure as an important part of health. She believes it’s time to move beyond the concept of body perfection, and start focusing on helping people have a better time in their bodies instead. In today’s episode we really dive into the messages we’re getting around food and how that impacts the way we lose weight (if we even can.) I know you’re going to love it, so let’s dive in! In today’s episode we chat about: Sarah’s story and why she started Wavelength with her mom. Food choices are about biology, not willpower. 92-98% of dieters don’t reach their weight loss goal… and most gain it back if they do! Marketing and food: What’s actually happening to get you to buy something? Why Wavelength is different from other platforms and how it will help you make better eating choices for you. Shame and how it relates to weight loss. Links and things: Wavelength’s website Chronically Healing Instagram Chronically Healing Facebook Group

    Ep. 108: Nervous System Regulation: How to Create Safety in Our Bodies with Elisabeth Kristof

    1:12:30

    Wow - this episode is truly one of our favorites! Today’s episode is with Elisabeth Kristof of Brian-Based Wellness, a virtual platform that puts training the nervous system at the center of everything from movement practice, to behavior change, trauma resolution and pain reduction. Elisabeth has been an entrepreneur and mover her whole life. She experienced her own nervous system dysregualtion -- chronic pain, fatigue, migraines, binge eating. She began to understand that applied neurology could be used for so much more than just pain reduction and athletic performance, and that our nervous system drives our behavior and experience of the world. During this episode, Elisabeth takes us through what nervous system regulation even is and how dysregulation can cause things like chronic pain, fatigue, migraines and binge eating. She also gives us “quick win” tools to start to listen to our nervous system so we can start to change our response overtime. There’s so many amazing nuggets in this episode, so make sure not to miss this one!   In today’s episode we chat about: Elisabeth’s story with the techniques that she now teaches in her own life (movement and applied neurology.) Big T vs. Little T trauma: What is trauma and nervous system regulation? Jessie & Christina’s stories and how we’ve seen nervous system dysregulation in our own lives and healing. Where to get started if you feel like you have a nervous system that’s a bit out of whack (plus a few “quick win” techniques you can try out right now!) Binge and emotional eating behaviors (aka protective outputs) and what’s happening in our nervous system when that happens. What is somatic therapy and healing and why is it important to acknowledge? Weight gain, emotional eating and binge-behavior, and how that is connected to our emotional healing. Minimum effective dose: what does that mean and why is it important to remember in our healing work.
