Eat to Win with performance chef, Hannah Grant
Play • 1 hr 3 min

On today’s podcast, I am joined by special guest, performance chef, Hannah Grant. Hannah is the team chef on the pro cycling tour and, just recently, filmed the gripping Amazon Prime series Eat Race Win.  

 On today’s podcast, Hannah and I start by discussing what made her want to become a chef and how she made the leap from chef to performance-based chef. We then talk about the concept “food is your fuel, your conditioning agent and your recovery” before moving onto how she creates delicious recipes for some of the world’s top athletes. She tells our listeners her top tips for creating delicious yet healthy meals at home and how to make veggies taste better. We chat about how she comes up with unique recipes for her athletes with different tastes, allergies and intolerances and requirements. Finally, we end the podcast with her connection to another special podcast guest, Dr Stacy Sims and how they work together to benefit their athletes.

All about Progesterone: why it may be low, why it’s important and how to improve your levels with Dr. Samina Mitha
Long cycles? Anovulatory cycles? Heavy periods? Trouble sleeping in the lead up to your period? Recurrent miscarriages? Spotting? These all have one thing in common - they may be caused by low progesterone. This cheeky little hormone starts to rise in the second half of your cycle and is so so important for your health. Progesterone is very important for so much beyond just your cycle - think bone health, musculoskeletal, immune, reducing inflammation, improving mood and painful, heavy or missing periods. A lot of women with PCOS deal with low progesterone levels - and the annoying side effects that come with that. One of the main reasons is because you MUST ovulate in order to produce progesterone. Your doctor may have tested you on Day 21 of your cycle and said you don’t have anything to worry about or they’ve given you some progestin to use - but there are some pitfalls here.  On today’s episode, I speak with the amazing Dr. Samina Mitha, ND about everything you need to know about Progesterone. We talk through what it is, how its produced, common symptoms of low progesterone, why it’s important for your health, how it may be impacting your PCOS, why ovulation is a big part of this conversation, progestin v micronized progesterone and so much more. If you resonate with any of the symptoms I listed above, this is an episode you need to listen to! *This episode is for you if:* * You have heavy periods * You have painful periods or endometriosis * You get spotting * You have hypothalamic amenorrhea * You have anovulatory cycles * You have insomnia or don’t sleep well leading up to when your period is due * You get bad PMS symptoms * You have long cycles * You have a short luteal phase *Some things we cover in this episode:* * Natural ways to support progesterone * Why progesterone is so important for your overall health and when TTC * Cyclical progesterone therapy * Provera (synthetic/utrogestan) vs. Prometrium (micronized progesterone) * When to test progesterone * Why your doctor may not prescribe micronised progesterone *Resources and References:* * *My Book: Getting Pregnant with PCOS* * *Dr. Samina’s website* * *Dr. Samina’s Instagram* * *Cyclical Progesterone Therapy* * *Dr Jerrilyn Prior* *Links to our programs:* * *The PCOS Protocol* * *Eggducated*

Get Fit, Don’t Quit: Kelsey Wells’ No Fail Formula for Mind-Body Strength
If you’re a little slow off the mark - or not as fired up as usual about your workouts this year - well, that’s not exactly surprising, all things considered. But you don’t need us to tell you that regular exercise - what with all it’s mood-elevating, energy-stabilising powers is one thing that will help get you through this turbo bleak midwinter, like little else. So, how do you jumpstart a fitness regimen that’s going to support you - in mind and body - through this wild time and beyond? In today’s episode we’ve got one of the world’s most loved, lauded and refreshingly real trainers answering this question. Kelsey Wells rose to prominence in fitness circles as a power trainer on the Kayla Itsines-founded SWEAT app, and continues to share her practical yet compassionate approach to strength-based training with her near three million-strong community of followers. However, she’s been on a real journey where exercise is concerned - growing up, she never saw herself falling for workouts, and it was only after a spell of poor mental health drove her to begin taking care of her body that she truly fell in love with fitness. In today’s episode, Kelsey discusses her journey from exercise refusenik to global fitness star, as well as sharing the fitness and mindset fundamentals you need to start - or reinvigorate - a fitness journey. She answers: how do you get started; when should you train; for how long?; what mix of workouts will get you strong without adding too much bulk; what gym equipment is actually worth it - and, above all, how do you keep going?

Thanks for Listening!
I've not written a blog for months. I've been moving house, had little internet connection, and been generally busy, and tired. I'm glad that this past couple of weeks I had felt like I have the time and space to start writing again, so there will be blogs to come, soon. I wanted to put something down to express my gratitude for all of you who have listened to and supported my podcast over the past three years. I didn't think that it would go anywhere, or that anyone would really listen to it. Well, you did. So thank you. I've had such support for the podcast, that I feel extremely guilty about announcing that I will not be producing any more episodes. But, as I discovered in the last 6 months or so, feeling guilty about stopping is not a good enough reason to keep going. I'd rather than stop completely than keep it going, but only publish episodes sporadically. Podcasts are a lot of work. Finding people to interview, scheduling interviews, and editing audio after interviews. If I am quick, an episode may take 6 hours start to finish (including scheduling etc), but many episodes take more like 10. It is a time thing. It's not that I don't have time. I can always make time. These days, my "free" time — time to do absolutely nothing productive at all — is increasingly precious and glorious to me. I am growing less inclined to give it up. I'm more selfish about my time — unapologetically, I enjoy that I enjoy being just me, without being the 'doing stuff' me. This 'wanting to do nothing' is actually exactly something that scared me when I had anorexia. I was scared that if I allowed myself to rest, I would always want to rest. I would forget how to be productive. My 'value' would decrease. Because when I was sick, I thought my value was in my ability to never rest, and always be productive. (Which, if you think about it, in a famine, would be about right.) The wonderful thing about being human in a brain that doesn't have anorexia any more, doesn't perceive that resources are scarce, and therefore doesn't believe that value is in productivity, is that I have the freedom to see the real value of being human. I know that sounds incredibly deep and ridiculous, but it is true. The other night, I was going to make this podcast. I had an hour or so. I was making my way up my back porch steps, and one of the puppies followed me up and "pawed" me on the leg, asking for attention. Years ago, when my value was in being productive, I either wouldn't have noticed him, or I would have noticed him, and gone inside anyway. These days, I'm more inclined to sit on the floor and play with the dogs because they asked than I am to go inside and start editing audio. Sometimes it is a puppy. Sometimes it is a horse. Sometimes it is a pattern that the wind has made in the snow that I need to stare at. Sometimes, very often, it is snuggling with Matt. I never take for granted my recovered brain. A brain that allows me to see the value in happiness, and being human. Never, ever, take it for granted. I feel blessed to have known a brain in starvation mode, if only because it allows me to know the bliss of not being there. Anyway. That's my way of saying there will be no more podcasts. Just because it is the right time to stop. I appreciate you for listening.
