There's a lot of bullshit to sift through out there when it comes to food. And exercise. And happiness. And weight loss. And confidence.

So, I'm answering some of the most common misconceptions, some of the most confusing parts about those things within this series. 

This episode is all about calories. Sort of. But also, why we're so confused about all of this. It's NOT complicated- but right now, it SO SO is. 
Here are some of the episode highlights if you want to skip ahead:

8:00- calories

8:32- studies that are funded and cater to self-serving biases

9:35- adding calories to your diet with Bullet Proof Coffee?

9:55: how to lose fat. Period. Science.

11:24- when and why I was my heaviest

14:32- healthy food isn’t really a thing

15:38- healthy food has nothing to do with weight loss

24:00- what to do if this episode doesn’t resonate with you yet
Stick with me here through this series, and we'll get it ALL sorted out!

Do you REALLY think you're overweight because of Thanksgiving? Do you TRULY believe you still have 20+ pounds to lose because each year you overeat just on Thanksgiving? This is a year round issue, my friends.

I, for one, am exhausted by the amount of crap all over the place about how to handle the Holidays. Eat this, not that. 
Do this, not that. 

Listen here: you and your loved ones will all die someday. If you want to miss out on experiencing the food around your Thanksgiving table tomorrow, so be it. For me, trying to lose an extra pound or two right now pales in comparison to the importance of enjoying a Holiday, filled with homemade food that was cooked with love, and sharing it around a table with the people who mean the most to me. 

The quest to help as many women as possible end their fight with food is just beginning. There is a lot of work to be done. If you're experiencing anxiety or already anticipating guilt about tomorrow- this one's for you.

This one feels like I'm standing naked in front of all you- which, actually at this point would be less scary than talking about the M word... money. 

I wasn't always willing to offer up my naked body (ha!) but that's because I've spent years fighting for the right to love myself, my body, and all of its flaws. 

So what does this have to do with money? 
For me, I'm realizing it's one in the same. 

CONFIDENCE doesn't just have to be about what we look like. Why? Because confidence is a FEELING, not a certain LOOK. 

Truth be told, I am confident AF about my body because I taught myself how to be. Does this mean I have what society would deem a perfect body? NOT EVEN CLOSE! And the best part is- I don't even care! *shakes unperfect hips anyway*

What I'm NOT confident about these days is my money. Not even close. 

Just like the stories about our bodies, the story surrounding our relationship money starts from childhood. And we burry ourselves within these stories. So I'm laying it ALL out there for you today on this episode, because I can't just TALK about being confident, I gotta BE about it.
