Changing Your Mindset For Health

After spending 20 years binge eating, after starting at age 14, Victoria Morrison knows all about the issue many of us deal with of constantly thinking about food.

Today however she is a fit and healthy 48 year old who still teaches Pump classes!

From Anorexia To Competitive Body Builder

Jamie Filer shares her story of triumph over anorexia.

For 10 years she suffered. She lost friends, her grades slipped and her parents had to make the decision to hospitalises her 3 times. At her lowest weight she weighed 95 pounds (43 kilos).

It destroyed her life.

But at 21 she realised that this illness was going to kill her if she didn’t change.

In this chat, Jaime shares the story of how she overcame anorexia and is now a personal trainer and competitive body builder.

Eating Paleo For Health

Ivy Thompson is a 32 year old mother of 3 in Melbourne Australia.

She has spent the past couple of years dealing with undiagnosed health issues. She had ultrasounds, gastroscopy, saw the GP, specialists, tried Chinese medicine and herbs and nothing worked.

Through a lot of research she discovered she had developed food allergies caused by leaky gut syndrome.

She decided to try the Paleo style of eating and in the year since she went Paleo her weight has dropped 23 kilos, has some muscle developing and is feeling healthier, happy and full of life.

What Is Emotional Eating?

As humans we have developed this whole eating for pleasure thing.

We eat when we are sad, depressed, angry, stressed and even happy! And it seems to be irrelevant whether we are actually hungry or not.

It might not seem like such a big deal but it can lead to devastating health problems.

On this podcast I talk with Dr Sharon Livingston of Emotional Eating Secrets about what this is and why we do it.

I hope it helps you in some way.

Marathon Running With Mother Of Five

Michelle Frost is a good friend of mine and a huge inspiration.

She has 5 kids, 1 new grandchild, runs 2 businesses and trains and runs marathons!

Now that’s a fair effort.

She ran her first marathon at age 39 and has run one marathon every year since.

Take aways for me from talking with Michelle are:

– Do something everyday
– Exercise with friends or a club for accountability and to make it more fun
–  Set goals and do your best to achieve them as it’s very empowering

After we spoke, we remembered that Michelle had actually written a book about running back in 2005. If you’re interested you can check it out here: Run Forever by Michelle Frost

Allison Reynolds is the guest on today’s Real Fit Women podcast episode.

We discuss how she has managed to improve her fitness and drop her body fat percentage even while having Multiple Sclerosis and having to deal with the effects of that.

She used the philosophies from Tim Ferris’s book The Four Hour Body to make her transformation happen.

The main points I got from this chat were:

– You need to make exercise a routine/habit
– No matter which program or book you decide to follow, you need to make it your own
– There’s no need to over do it, just the minimum effective dose
