EP. 95 How to Eat to Maximize Weight Loss with Karen Martel

Posted on


Have you struggled with the on again, off again diet game?  You go on a diet and you see a little progress but not much and then you give it up.  Or maybe you’re struggling to lose that last ten pounds after having your recent child.  From calorie counting to the million and one diets out there how can we know what to believe and what not to believe?  How to we wade through all the differing opinions when it comes to weight loss and health? Even with training, having things shift can help both behaviorally and physiologically.



This week I sit down with nutrition coach Karen Martel who has struggled with the diet game, as well as bulimia.  She brings to our attention something that is commonly overlooked, our hormones. If you are doing everything right with your diet and workouts there can be more going on and it’s not just you.  In this episode, we talk how to test your hormone levels and if they are off how to get them back on track.
