Understanding Your Metabolism with Lumen
Today I cover a few topics such as Net Carb, Using a Lumen, and What is 75 Tough? -------- WEIGH IN -------- In my last episode I was 229, and after going up after Thanksgiving, I am back to 229 (so I'm the same). I am exercising more, and watching what I eat to I highly expect to be down next episode. ------------------------- Am I Burning Carbs or Fat ------------------------- I've always viewed cards as kindling and fat is the "logs" of a fire. You need the kindling to start the fire, but to really stay warm you need to logs to catch fire. So you need both carbs and fat, but how do you know if you are burning carbs or fat? --------------------------------------- The Lumen Shows You What You're Burning --------------------------------------- I've been using this, and it takes all of five minutes to breath into the device in the morning, and it lets you know how you're doing, and what to do to achieve your goal. It somewhat looks like you are vaping. The device is scientifically proven to be accurate. It's not a toy, and previously this kind of test was only done at a medical facility and now you can do it at home. (right not there is a black Friday sale, and it rarely - if ever- goes on sale. When you adjust your diet to start burning fat more efficiently, you know you're heading it the right direction. For more information see ( ) ---------------------- 75 Tough - What Is it? ---------------------- 75 Tough is a challenge from Andy Frisella where for 75 days you are required to: * Read 10 pages * Follow a diet * Abstain from alcohol or cheat meals * Drink 1 gallon of water (128 ounces) * Take a progress picture * Perform two 45 minute workouts * One workout must be outside. You can also add your own personal items if you'd like. The program is designed to build the mental toughness and self-confidence that you will need to live your best life.

Then they want you to download his free app. I can say that so far I have not spent any money (I am going to buy the book) and I'm not receiving a bunch of spam.

All About All About Fitness - The Trailer
Losing weight. Gaining muscle. Improving definition. Better health. Whether you exercise because you want to or you feel that you have to, you want to make sure that you are doing the best exercises for your specific needs and goals and THAT is why you should be listening to the All About Fitness podcast. I've been a certified personal trainer for more than 20 years and for much of the past 12 years I've been traveling the world to teach fitness education workshops for some of the largest organizations in fitness including certification organizations and equipment companies. For 2 years I was the director of education for a national health club company. For 5 years I worked directly for the American Council on Exercise (ACE), the largest non-profit fitness certification organization in the US, to develop education content, since leaving the organization as a full-time employee in 2013 I have produced content and helped with exam development as a contractor. In the early 2000s I taught the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), the largest for-profit fitness certification organization, for a health club company and since 2014 I have taught their online education program for individuals preparing to take the certification exam. I am one of a few people who has written textbook chapters and content for the 2 largest certification organizations. In addition, my book, Smarter Workouts: the Science of Exercise Made Simple, was published by Human Kinetics in 2019 and can teach you how to design workout programs for your specific needs. In addition to contract work for ACE and NASM, currently I develop and teach education programs for Nautilus and StairMaster; this means that I write and develop education for some of the most well-known names in the fitness industry, the point is that if these organizations trust me to develop their content then you can trust that anything you hear on the All About Fitness podcast will be research-based and backed by actual science. While I may not have hundreds of thousands of social media followers or have shirtless pictures in a top fitness magazine, the chances are that if you work with a personal trainer or fitness instructor then they have probably been influenced by my work either through an education program I've developed or content I've written for one of the above organizations. On the All About Fitness podcast not only will you learn about the best types of exercises for your fitness goals, you will also learn how to use exercise to slow down and manage the aging process. There is an overwhelming accumulating body of evidence to suggest that exercise can help slow down the effects of time and by listening to the All About Fitness podcast you will learn how you can take advantage of that for your personal workouts.

Ep 135 - The problem with Noom
Welcome to how to love your body! Today’s episode is all about Noom, how it’s different, how it’s not and the trouble with pretty much everything they’re doing! Note: You may notice our new podcast art! Don’t be alarmed it’s just us with a fun new cover by DrawnbyMary on Instagram! This episode is brought to you by our 5 Day Mindset Boost Series that you can get at . This will help you work on releasing the dieting mindset which is a hugely important part of the UnDieting process. Alright let’s Noom it up. For those who don’t know what is Noom? From my understanding it is a diet app created by psychologists - and it’s most defining feature is that it is psychology based. It’s branding is very strong and people really see it as something totally different from other diets. I was at a networking event once and someone asked me what I do, I told them I was an intuitive eating counsellor and I help people stop dieting and have a healthier relationship with food. Their response was - oh like Noom??//??? Forehead slap. As I did a bit more research for this episode Noom was actually created by 2 engineers, not psychologists. Yes perhaps they consult with psychologists but that’s not who created it. This app has 50 million users and to quote “The company aims to help reinforce positive decision-making to improve the lives and health of its users.” Where does the psychology come in? Let us take you through the journey on their website it says - find out what's possible with Noom’s psychology based evaluation and your 2 choices are Get fit for good and lose weight for good. (Yeah okay sure) You then have to enter your weight and height (AKA BMI) - seeing the psychology yet? Yeah me neither. It then asks ME what my ideal weight is (aka pick an arbitrary number ) - I deliberately picked a weight that is underweight for me to see what they’d say, the response was congratulations you set your first goal! Then as I click through it says Noom creates long term results through habit and behavior change, not restrictive dieting… yeah okay, you know what behavior they want you to change? Eating food. Then it says - Women in their 30s who want to reach an ideal weight between xxlb. and xx lb. (numbers that are too low for most grown women) especially tall women. Need a different strategy depending on their current lifestyle and then they ask me if i'm active have healthy habits (what the hell does that mean) Then As a Woman in your 30s, the specific combination of foods you eat can have a huge impact on your ability to burn fat. Which of the following best describes your typical lunch? As I go through the quiz they say Sticking to a plan can be hard, but Noom makes it easy - how? Nobody knows - this is no different than any diet ever. They claim I can lose 50 lbs in 6 months (and keep it off HAHA) Then I answered a few more questions and they moved my 50 lb weight loss up by a month - what the hell Oh wow answered a few more questions now I’m going to lose 50 lbs another 2 weeks sooner! Now we get to the first mention of psychology and it says they'll send me articles? And that there are no good or bad foods, just green and red foods - oh ef off! Everyone falls off the wagon sometimes, we’ll help you get back on track They claim to use cognitive behavioral therapy and they are asking a bunch of questions in order to help me “control my triggers” to eating. And they use the TRUE findings that yo-yo dieting results in weight gain over time. This is so manipulative, if they mention it then THEY must be different but what’s different here? From people we’ve talked to they almost always recommend 1100-1200 calories for everyone no matter what you answer to all these questions and it’s supposedly personalized. The onboarding process seems so promising, it really does look and feel different than another diet but we need to see the wolf in sheep’s clothing here. Then I have to pay before I can see any details (which I am not willing to do because there are a lot of stories out there about people trying to cancel with Noom and not being able to). So what are the issues here: * The worst part of Noom is their claim of being “psychology based” . THIS is the main issue we have with Noom. There are a million diets and diet apps out there like Noom that give you a set amount of calories, where you can track your food intake and workouts, that is nothing new, it’s the fact that they are tricking people into thinking this is something different that is the problem. Many people have asked us but what about Noom and unfortunately a TON of people have actually joined and got caught up in it just to realize its the same as any other diet. It preys on people trying to get out of the diet cycle but just lures them right back in. * YOU choose the weight you want to be - there’s no mention of being underweight or suggestion that you don’t need to lose weight. This doesn’t have your best interests at heart, it’s just another million dollar company looking to make a dollar off your desire to lose weight to fit into what our culture says is the right way to have a body * THE ONLY part that is so called psychology is when they send some articles to read so it’s really just a diet with homework. This will not give you any results that any other diet couldn’t give you. It’s restrictive, it’s unhealthy and it’s 100% focused on losing weight (even if you pick the get fit option and not the weight loss option they still make you enter a weight loss goal). Steer clear of Noom and warn anyone who thinks that it’s different because of their psychology claims! If you really do want to escape the diet cycle our 5 day UnDiet mindset boost series is available at PS - Look out for The Body Love Society Intuitive Eating and Body Image Support App coming 2021 if you actually want to stop dieting and find food and body freedom (AND it’s more affordable than Noom too :) ) See you next week!

Your WEIGHT Is Not The Problem
People look at their weight and think that’s the problem. But in reality, your weight is the result of a BIGGER PROBLEM. Your weight is a symptom of the actual problem. You’ll find so many people struggling to lose weight all the time and even regaining it all back.

(230) Weight changes (Intuitive Eating Series)
Have you heard Intuitive Eating can help you lose weight if you do it right? Blech. NO. I know you've heard that yet it is sooooo off. That advice is steering you in the direction away from Food Peace. I want to help you get back on track. Listen to latest Love Food Podcast for insight. This episode of the Love Food Podcast is brought to you by Jennifer McGurk's Pursuing Private Practice programs. Anti-diet dietitians: take business building one step at a time surrounded by community and support. I highly recommend Jennifer's Pursuing Private Practice Programs. Check out her free resources for Love Food Listeners here: NEW PODCAST ALERT Do you host a podcast I need to tell Love Food listeners about? I want to support Black podcasters get the word out about their fat positive show. Send details to Dear Food: After a lifetime of eating, bingeing, and restricting, I finally felt like I needed to shift the way we exist in the world together. I've loved you, feared you, needed you, and abused you. We were in need of couples therapy. Luckily, I found a great podcast that was all about you! After binge listening to the Love Food Podcast, I was inspired to explore intuitive eating. For the last month, I've immersed myself into the intuitive eating/body positive culture by reading and investigating different books, blogs, etc. What I learned felt right, and I started to implement the tenets of intuitive eating. We had a great two week honeymoon, where I wasn't anxious about dining out and I allowed myself to eat what I truly craved. I was also vigilant about stopping before I got too full. It was pretty amazing to learn how little I actually needed to feel satisfied. Things were going great until I did something stupid. I stepped on the scale. Yes, I know the experts said you can't diet and practice intuitive eating at the same time. But, my old compulsion got the best of me. So I weighed myself and it turns out I lost a few pounds. Almost effortlessly. And that's where I derailed. Since finding out I've lost some weight, I've been bingeing and restricting again! It's the same thing I would do when I used to diet. Lose a little, and then eat my way back up the scale. What am I doing??? I can't seem to find the intuitive path again. Every day I try, but end up bingeing by the end of the day. How did I get here again? I was feeling so empowered and free just a couple of weeks ago, and now I'm feeling defeated and fat all over again. I somehow turned intuitive eating into another diet gone wrong. Food, I want to get us on the right path again but I'm not sure how.
