Losing the 80’s Eat Less Exercise More Myth | Women Over 50

Still holding onto “eat less, exercise more?”

“I think, as a product of the 80’s fitness and diet teaching, we still need lots of debunking of what we learned! I still go back to “exercise more and eat less” as a mantra and I know it’s incorrect! How do I replace that thinking? What would that new mantra be?”  Dixie

Watch this first

First… if you haven’t seen my TEDx talk, I suggest you watch it. Two stories of clients I shared will illustrate the benefits the right exercise can have. I also shared my own story, so whether you’re asking as someone whose very active and has always been and loves it, someone who doesn’t necessarily love it but believes more exercise is the path to weight loss, or it’s easy for you to become addicted to habits there’s something there for you.

Then, let me share the Flipping 50 After 50 Fitness Formula foundation.

The Flipping 50 Tenants are:

  • Restore Before More
  • Interval Early Light Late
  • Exercise Less, Eat More
  • Sleep Deep
  • Rest Best
  • Go Pro
  • Find Fatigue
  • Get Breathless
  • Do It for Joy (not for calories)

The other question I have is what would a typical workout schedule look like? Including 2 strength training work outs and at least 2 intervals? What do I do on the other days? And how intense should those other exercise sessions be?  Dixie

Great question. I gave a live Facebook session on this and I’ll share the link with you in the show notes.

If you want to go really deep, fast flip coaching right now may be perfect, if you’re lucky enough to find any spots open, I’m offering a Fast Flip mini private coaching session to help women who want to learn how to use intermittent fasting with their exercise and want 90 days of support through quick, easy calls to keep you on track. The limited number of spots will go fast at $297 (comparing this easy-access coaching to VIP coaching you’re getting it for a small fraction of the complete coaching package).

Be First!

I have to let you know, I record episodes in batches, so the fast flip coaching sessions may be gone. I’ll remove the link from the show notes when they’re gone in case you’re listening to this episode later.

And there’s never been a better time while you’re quarantined. If you’d like to talk about a “Fast Flip” opportunity available right now for a limited number of women. You can work with me on your own fast + exercise for 12 weeks… respond now before spots are taken.

This is usually reserved for current program participants and coaching clients. I’m opening up a limited number of spots for others right now. There’s never been a better time to work on your health habits and exercise.


Once these spots are gone they’re gone. Check show notes at flippingfifty.com/eat-more for the order.
