Heidi Schauster is a nutrition therapist with over 20 years of experience specializing in eating disorders and emotional eating problems. She is also the author of Nourish, a book that aims to guide readers in transforming their eating habits into something positive and self-loving. In addition to nutrition counseling, she provides consultations and lectures in schools and professional groups on the topic of disordered eating.

 

Heidi joins me today to discuss the concept of disordered eating and how it continues to physically and emotionally damage teens and adults alike. She explains the causes of eating disorders as well as why not everyone who has an issue with food has an eating disorder. She also describes how a person can shift from a negative outlook on food to a positive one, and why punishing yourself because of bad eating habits will only make things worse.

 

 

“There's a danger in trying to eat perfectly.” - Heidi Schauster

 

 

In This Episode, You’ll Learn:

 

  • When Heidi became interested in fitness and being healthy.
  • Her thoughts on those who just want to lose weight.
  • How she defines disordered eating.
  • Her advice when it comes to people who are ashamed of their own body.
  • Why you shouldn't see comfort food and nourishing food as two different things.
  • What can act as hurdles in overcoming a bad habit?
  • The first step in becoming a healthier version of yourself.
  • The importance of having variety in our diet.


Key Takeaways:

 

  1. Sometimes even health coaches contribute to the damage.
  2. Weight loss doesn't have to be the focus of movement, but it's definitely connected.
  3. We don't always have a diagnosable eating disorder that fits all the criteria.
  4. The more you understand yourself, the easier it is for you to become healthy.
  5. We want comfort, but we also want nourishment and they aren't really separated.

Vivica Menegaz is blogger, nutritionist, and well-known ketogenic cookbook author. One of the reasons she loves the ketogenic diet is due to how it let her bounce back from a pre-diabetic state. She didn’t like the advice given by doctors and certainly never accepted her health problems as part of the aging process.

In part 1 of our interview, Vivica joins us to talk about how she embarked on her health and fitness journey and  her many struggles. We also discuss why she became adamant about helping herself and the many lessons she learned from her self-taught experience.

 

"It's your own problems and health challenges that lead you to become an expert in certain things.” Vivica Menegaz

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • When she started eating healthier.
  • How research in nutrition led her to the ketogenic diet.
  • How refusing to go the path her mom and grandma took became her stepping stone.
  • Why she'd rather study thyroid and adrenal as her specialty than female hormones.
  • Are women particularly vulnerable to adrenal and thyroid problems?

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Inform yourself, educate yourself, and make your own decisions.

Mark Crabtree is a trainer and founder of Ignite Fitness Inc. Mark has plenty of certifications under his belt including being a certified athletic trainer for professional athletes. He drew his fitness inspiration from Arnold Schwarzenegger, which made him want to get stronger and get bigger muscles. He decided to learn more about training and rehab when his doctor said a previous shoulder injury, which he got from training, was fine yet he still felt pain. He has since become the kind of trainer athletes don’t want to see, as frequent visits meant something’s wrong with their body.

Today, Mark gives his insight on the difference between training a professional athlete vs a typical fitness enthusiast, why he believes in Minimum Effective Dose, and his tips on how to maintain the body people worked hard to get.

"Doing less but doing it more effectively actually speeds up results and gets you there significantly quicker.” Mark Crabtree

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The difference between pros and amateur athletes is the preparation they do before their activity. Most pros require some taping or some extra cushioning in vital areas especially when it comes to contact sports.
  • Typical fitness enthusiasts may also choose to do what pros do before their training to help prevent injury.
  • Your fitness philosophy, what you think, is important matters when knowing what kind of training you should be focusing on.
  • The minimum effective dose helps you get to your goals and still live your life outside the gym.
  • Most people like to go for a run first before they start lifting. Running is an advanced exercise which is hard for the body if you're a beginner.
  • When trying to live a healthy lifestyle, change a few things slowly and gradually transition into what you can sustain for long term.
  • Most workouts Mark advocates take less than 30 minutes after warmup, something most people don't think works but actually does.
  • People are drawn to go back to the way they always ate, but they have to adjust to their new normal if they want to keep their gains.

Key Takeaways:

  • Fitness is a journey, not a short 12-week thing.
  • The middle of the road process is the fastest way to get where you want to be.
  • Fitness is supposed to make your life better and more enjoyable.

Dai Manuel - before he became a personal trainer, keynote speaker, author, and a general fitness inspiration - was an obese teenager. He started fat-building when he was 9 years old and packed on pound after pound until he was 14 and weighed an astonishing 200 lbs. with a 38-inch waistline, metrics that shouldn’t belong to a kid who’s barely 5 feet 6 inches.

It wasn’t until he was 14 that he decided to change the way he lived and that’s where it all began. He built a good habit and swore by it. He lost lots of weight and built muscle over the course of 20 months all while growing 8 inches taller. He has since helped people and has been doing so for 25 years with no signs of stopping.

Today we’re going to talk about his transformation story, the habits that made him who he is today, and his opinion on the child obesity epidemic.

 

“If you want to be a positive role model you've gotta be doing it too.” Dai Manuel

 

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • At the age of 14, Dai was faced with two choices: to accept his life and live with it or change it for the better. He chose the latter.
  • Dai made use of what he had to grow his knowledge when it came to health and fitness. Internet access wasn’t as popular then so he made use of the library.
  • He began his fitness journey by eating smarter and riding a fitness bike. He eventually got more active and learned taekwondo, climbed mountains for fun, and eventually got into CrossFit and stayed there.
  • When you change to a better version of yourself, people start asking you for helpful advice.
  • Education in nutrition is the answer to obesity problem in kids.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Living a healthy and fit lifestyle is always a choice.
  • Talk about feelings, don't talk about science when it comes to what kids eat. Ask about how they feel when they eat junk food vs healthy meals.
  • Have a lifestyle that will support your "treats" and cheat days.
  • People workout and go on a healthy diet so they can enjoy life more.

Leah Segedie is a food activist who spearheaded the non-GMO movement. She organizes social media events to helps spread information about the food supply, issues impacting public health, the big corporations who are slowly joining their side, and the corporations who are still stubborn.

Today, Leah tells us her passion for her movement, why she thinks Millennials are the perfect audience when it comes to food activism, and why she thinks this movement and shifting of marketing perspective all boils down to money.

 

“If you give your money to something you enjoy and passionate about, that's the future you're creating.” Leah Segedie

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • When you are motivated by a bigger picture, you’re more likely to have a better and long-term success.
  • You go to have those kind of big picture understandings of the world to see when you throw down and you let things slide; what is important and what is not important.
  • Forging strong relationships with people is necessary to help get through the tough times.
  • Leah’s movement is not about taking companies down but about changing the grocery aisle. She envisions a world where a clueless mother will be picking healthy food items for her kids by default.
  • She insists companies will go where people are headed and the trend is towards organic and non-GMO goods. If companies can find profit in that area, they will have a marketing shift. It’s all about where the money is for them.
  • As her movement progresses, the future is healthier for children today and for years to come.
  • Millennials are centered on what's important to them and they purchase things based on that. They are much more open minded and if they consider buying healthier food, expect big corporations to follow for decades to come.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Today is the age where anybody with a great idea can win out over a corporation with billions of dollars of resources.

Gina Badalaty a health blogger and mother of two kids with autism. She is the founder of Embracing Imperfect, a website dedicated to reaching out to moms who are confused on how to raise children with specific disabilities and special needs. She enjoys writing about health and food topics concerning how processed food is made, the dangers of commonly used ingredients, and how food affects our brain, especially a baby’s brain.

 

Gina joins me today to share her insights and ideas regarding what’s it like to be a health advocate and a mom of two kids with autism. She discusses the time she realized how food affects the brain and the steps she took to improve her children’s lives through diet. She also explains why some foods should not be consumed even if they’re labeled “organic” or “natural,” describes how she deals with stress, and why sometimes you can use it as motivation inside the gym.

 

“Every single thing you eat and drink is really important - not just to your body, but to your brain and how it functions.” - Gina Badalaty

 

In This Episode, You’ll Learn:

 

  • When Gina got her passion for fitness.
  • The dietary changes she made for her family.
  • Why she's not fond of dairy especially in America.
  • The specific foods she added to their diet.
  • Her philosophy on dairy, gluten, and soy.
  • How she handles stress eating and what she does in the gym afterward.

 

Gina Badalaty’s Advice to Transform Your Family’s Life:

 

  1. Test and experiment with how your body responds to different foods.
  2. Identify your dietary limits.
  3. Listen to your body and make adjustments along the way.
  4. There's a world of other foods that are delicious and don't contain ingredients that will harm your body.
  5. Remember: What you eat today affects how you perform at the gym, and how you feel afterward.

Dr. Glenn Livingston is a veteran psychologist and author of the book Never Binge Again, a short yet comprehensive guide to controlling emotional eating and food obsession as well as knowing how to achieve your fitness goals. Having been a binge eater before, he relates his own story regarding the vicious emotional cycle of feast and famine and explains how he eventually found the road to recovery. His main drive behind the book was his severe dissatisfaction with what traditional psychology had to offer regarding obesity and emotional eating.

 

Dr. Glenn Livingston joins me today to share his wisdom and expertise regarding emotional eating, to whom and how it happens, and the steps to recovery. He discusses how the media and the giant food industries are heavily invested in making you eat all the time and how they use psychology to trick people. He also explores the concept of self-flagellation and shame after a binge eating as well as how to forgive yourself.

 

“When you commit, you have to commit with perfection. If you make a mistake, you have to forgive yourself with dignity.” - Dr. Glenn Livingston

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

 

  • What led Dr. Glenn to start addressing emotional eating and binge eating?
  • His opinions on the food industry and why they're out to promote unhealthy eating.
  • What prompts our brain to make us feel bad after a binge?
  • His story as a binge eater and how he recovered.
  • Foods that get people starting off on a binge.
  • The kind of people who often fall victim to binge eating.
  • How he helps binge eaters recover.
  • The feast and famine cycle and the highs associated with them.

 

Key Takeaways:

 

  • A lot of us eat for comfort. Binge eaters eat to get high with food.
  • Big companies spend billions of dollars to produce and advertise food that finds our bliss point and makes you eat what's not healthy for you.
  • If it was as simple as just exercise and eat appropriately, we'd all be fit.
  • Virtually everybody experiences periods where they eat beyond personal intent.
  • The solution for binge eating is not a week of juice fasting, but regular, sustained reasonable nutrition day in and day out for months.

Matt Taub is an international fitness presenter, Beachbody Live master trainer, Fitfluential Ambassador, husband, and father of three boys with a serious passion for helping others live to their full potential by creating healthy habits in their daily lives. Matt entered college as a borderline underweight freshman, but by the time he graduated, he was considered very overweight. Following college, he entered the workforce in the public relations industry – which he hated – and his health continued to deteriorate significantly as he started several bad habits and addictions, including smoking and drinking.

In part two of our interview with Matt, we “get real” on what his life was like while struggling with addiction, what the motivating factor was to make him want to change his life and become healthier, and how he and his wife Felicia maintain a healthy balance while “keeping it real” and raising their boys to be active, fit, and healthy.

“You want to train your body to thrive – not just survive.” – Matt Taub

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How Matt and Alecia balance fitness and health for their children while still allowing them to have “fun foods” like ice cream, cake, and cookies.
  • The importance of keeping kids healthy, fit, and active.
  • The overwhelming tendency in today’s youth with less activity, frequent convenience foods, and massive use of technology devices.
  • The physical effects and posture changes associated with kids using technology devices too much.
  • The importance of getting kids active, disconnecting them from technology devices, and eating healthier so their bodies can thrive.
  • How parents can talk to their kids about making healthy lifestyle choices.
  • The moment Matt realized he needed to end his addiction to alcohol.
  • How his life changed after he beat his addiction.
  • Why he believes recognizing your addictive behavior patterns and discovering why you do them can help beat your addiction.

Key Takeaways:

  • Kids are going to be kids. They may protest, but they will eat what’s in front of them. We have to give kids a balance in order to keep them fit and help their bodies thrive instead of just survive.
  • The biggest thing about beating addiction is that there is a reason why you are doing it. Find out the “why,” then find someone to help keep you accountable to staying on track with your recovery process.

Robyn Baldwin is an Alpha Female and works to support women (and also men) in finding work-life harmony. Despite being diagnosed with an incurable disease, she treated it as a blessing in disguise as it allowed her to understand her body more as well as what being healthy is really all about. She also has her own podcast where she interviews other Alpha Females to learn their tips and tricks when it comes to fitness, nutrition, and healthy habits.

In this episode, Robyn shares her personal fitness story. She describes what prompted her to find more about her body and why she wasn’t fazed when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She explains the difference between a fitness journey and a health journey and why the latter is more holistic. Robyn also provides tips on becoming proactive when it comes to our health.

 

“Being proactive in health means solving the little pain points before they become massive pain points.” - Robyn Baldwin

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Robyn's personal fitness story.
  • How she responded to her Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis.
  • Why she thinks she was gifted with MS.
  • The difference between being health conscious a decade ago and today.
  • Her thoughts on cheat days.
  • Her advice when it comes to being proactive about health.  

 

Key Takeaways:

  • We ignore signs and symptoms, and we don't take care of ourselves proactively because it's not a pain point in our life.
  • A high level of fitness does not guarantee being impervious to any disease.
  • Being an alpha female is a state of mind - of choosing ambition and taking care of yourself at the same time.
