She desires to help and empower other women to overcome their limiting beliefs by being a recurring contributor at CBS Channel 8 Las Vegas NOW and working with companies like eHow.com, Lorna Jane, and West Elm. She also offers programs and hosts the podcast Fit Fierce and Fabulous, with the latter ranking first on the iTunes charts.

Courtney joins me today to share how to start the work within so you can embrace and appreciate who you are. She shares her definition of self-hate and her journey of learning to love herself, how to start building your self-confidence, and how to discover your purpose.

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.

Heidi Powell is what we call the ultimate female force. She’s a trainer, a transformation specialist, an author, a savvy businesswoman, a health nut, and a mother of beautiful children. She’s the co-host of ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss and has since helped a lot of people choose a healthier and fitter life.

In today’s episode, Heidi talks about her many ups and downs, what her life was like before she found out what being fit means, and her tips on how to successfully transform yourself both inside and out.

 

“Losing weight or reaching any goal is like a game of poker. You have to have your cards and you play one card at a time.” Heidi Powell

 

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • An eating disorder is not always anorexia or bulimia; it’s not being able to find balance with nutrition.
  • Some diets can get the best of you and make you feel stressed, even the most flexible ones like Macro tracking.
  • Finding balance is everything so take a break on your diet every now and then.
  • Doing everything strategically or slowly will lead to a long-term success specially when it comes to weight loss.
  • Parents should be less concerned about kids liking them but more about raising productive human beings.
  • Coaches play a major role in making sure the client sticks with the program. Without a coach, Heidi would be a totally different person.
  • Investing in yourself will always reap more than what you pay for.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • It's not about the weight or how you look but how you love yourself.
  • Trusting the process and the coach is important when it comes to a successful transformation.
  • When you invest money in yourself, not only are saving money on healthcare cost but you’re also clearing you mind as you bring more things other than money into your life.

Gary Vaynerchuk is a man known to build not buildings but businesses. Just after college, he was able to elevate his family’s wine business from being a relatively small $3M to a whopping $60M business in just five years. He currently runs VaynerMedia, one of the world’s most popular digital agencies. He’s also what you call an angel investor or an investor who believes in start-ups, and also a venture capitalist with investments on large media companies such as Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter. He eventually co-founded VaynerRSE, an investment fund worth $25M.

In today’s episode, Gary talks about how his views on his health was able to drastically alter the way he thinks about his business and the way he interacts with not just his clients but also friends and family members. He also discusses his opinions on what it takes to get what you want and why he thinks positivity has become a necessity in an increasingly negative world.

 

“My belief in what people can accomplish in business has grown by my accomplishment around my health.” Gary Vaynerchuk

 

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • A two-hour flight changed Gary’s perspective on his health even at the age of 38.
  • Keeping yourself accountable or being accountable to somebody else is a must when it comes to long term health.
  • Age doesn’t have to be a reason why you feel weak or out of breath.
  • There are no shortcuts to health, just the work. It’s the same when it comes to business.
  • Loser mentality is when people hang around other people who just want to complain and not work on a solution.
  • Being good bleeds over but people need to be focused on not crippling themselves living at the standard they can’t live up to.
  • Optimism and positivity is suppressed. Negativity is loud. You need to take that positivity even if people don't want to hear it.
  • Money, power, fame, it changes nobody. All it does is expose us who they actually are.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • You need to know what works for you to achieve the goals other successful people have reached. No need to do it his or her way.
  • Nobody’s going to feel sorry for you. Every winner in your life has zero sympathy for you. Life is harder for some people, life may be harder for you and it needs to change. You can be part of the change by winning and using your money and power to change things.

Dr. Chad Larson is a certified clinical nutritionist and certified strength and conditioning specialist. He practices integrative naturopathic medicine which largely treats patients based on conventional medicine strategies and tests, but the treatment is usually more on a holistic protocol.

Chad became passionate in fitness at a young age and even started training people when he was just 15 years old. When he was in college taking up medicine, he had a back injury which ended up being fixed by a chiropractor, a profession he didn’t know existed until that day. Unsurprisingly, Chad was amazed at how his pain was instantly relieved in just one session. He figured he wanted to use his own hands to fix people in a very short period of time so he ended up going to chiropractor school and became one himself.

Today, Chad gives his insight on leaky gut syndrome, what it’s about, what causes it, and shares why a simple headache can be caused by poor gut health.

 "I like to make as many educated connections between the recommendations I'm making and the symptoms they're experiencing.” Dr. Chad Larson

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Integrative medicine uses conventional medicine principles, but the treatment protocol is different.
  • Naturopathic medical schools are based on diet and nutrition.
  • Increased intestinal permeability or Leaky Gut s when things that don't normally get past your intestinal walls can now pass through easily into your circulation.
  • Leaky Gut can be a key gateway to inflammation and even autoimmunity.
  • Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and other common over the counter medicine can cause leaky gut.
  • Stress can cause leaky gut through elevated cortisol levels.
  • Just four drinks of alcohol are enough to break down the gut barrier.
  • Dysbiosis or the imbalance of good and bad bacteria can also cause leaky gut.
  • People are often unaware of how important gut health is. Gastrointestinal function can have something to do with a person's headache or other diseases.
  • There is a wide collection of resources that indicate gluten as a toxic substance to some people.

Key Takeaways:

  • Everything in your body and your lifestyle is connected. Chronic illnesses are a sign that something's wrong with your body so listen to it.

Lesley Seymour is an entrepreneur and a former editor-in-chief of More, Redbook, and Marie Claire magazines. After her career in the magazine industry, Lesley created a community-oriented website exclusive to women called the Covey Club. Covey Club’s goal is to bring women over forty together who want to live their second life through connections, various tools, and real and virtual meetups.

In this episode, Lesley helps us understand the problems older women encounter in the workplace. She explains why being forty is not supposed to be the end of your prime, why you need to have - what she calls - a “reinvention plan,” and why women should not be afraid to ask for help. She also shares how the Covey Club works, what awaits future members, and some of its current projects.

  • Women don't take help well since we're supposed to be the helpers, and that has to change.

Tina Muir is a pro runner and host of the Run to the Top podcast. She didn’t like running before and once shied away from any sort of running activity. When she did start running, she was initially embarrassed and ran in the dark. She mostly blogs about running but she also blogs about body image and shares it’s normal to have some sort of insecurity since even the most perfect of bodies are owned by people who have hidden struggles.

Today Tina will talk about her fitness journey and the reason she started her blogs especially on the topic of body image.

 

"Those airbrushed magazines aren't reality, but what is reality is what we are actually feeling even though only a few people will admit it.” Tina Muir

 

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Tina not only shares her running stories but also her struggles. She says sharing her struggles allow people to relate to her and somehow feel good that they’re not alone.
  • Talked a lot about weight and how she viewed herself. She insists that she's not perfect and those air-brushed magazines aren't reality.
  • We have different shapes and sizes but it's so hard not to compare yourself with other people especially since social media always shows us the best pictures of people who have flaws too.
  • People like to workout because they like to eat.
  • Started with not being able to exercise 6 minutes without stopping now she can do 15 minutes straight because she trained her body that way.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • We all have a different approach to health and wellness. We need to stop segregating amongst ourselves.
  • Restricting yourself on food you want might make you feel down and overindulged since you're trying to fill a void.

In her 20s, Shannon Kaiser had everything a twenty-something could ask for. A steady job, an abundant source of income, a man who wanted to marry her, and lived in a flat that was better than what most her age can afford. Despite all the success, Shannon wasn't happy. Suffering with bouts of depression, struggling with an addiction to pain killers and a diagnosis of clinical depression, Shannon would often times find herself sobbing with sadness and frustration.

During one difficult bout of depression, Shannon believed her heard an inner voice say, “You have everything you need. Follow your heart.”  It was a pivotal moment. . Realizing she wasn’t being true to herself, she was with a man she didn’t want to marry, and had a job that drained the life out of her she radically changed her mindset, quit her day job and now, her life’s purpose is to help others feel alive, the same way she does today.

Today, Shannon inspires us with her journey, and what it truly means to follow your heart. Shannon explains why it’s important to visualize the future version of yourself and offers advice on using our fears to propel us to a higher plane.

 

"Recognizing we're not stuck is monumental in moving us forward.” Shannon Kaiser

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Your mindset is where happiness starts. You can free yourself by the power of your mind.
  • Stress reduction should be the long-term goal of every person regardless of whether they have a busy lifestyle or not.
  • Ask yourself what you can be thankful for instead of brooding over how hard your life is.
  • Think about what one steps you can take right now. It’s always the first step that gets you going farther.
  • The biggest fear would be what if you couldn't make money out of the thing you love. You have to condition yourself to believe in what's possible than be limited by the fear.
  • The chaos in your life can improve the way you live. Go and do what scares you.
  • Keep showing up for yourself and be the best version of yourself in the moment.
  • You got to break up with your issues. Ask yourself what is holding you back. Break up with that issue and cut it out of your system.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • It is so incredibly exhausting to be someone you aren't.
  • Fear isn't always bad. You have to recognize it and give it attention. Ignoring fear can sabotage us from moving forward and keep us stuck if we ignore it.
