Used correctly under the right circumstances it can boost longevity, support better fat burning, and natural detox. Used inappropriately under the wrong circumstances it could backfire. How to know the difference? Listen in as we discuss the scenarios.

#2 Blunt Fitness Facts as We Age | Real Talk Interview   

In this interview episode, I chat with Susan Niebergall who enjoyed a career as a school counselor and then became interested in fitness. As so many others do, she first solved her own challenge with midlife. She’s a straight talker, and we openly tackle myths and mindset crazy-ness that infects midlife women.

Protein, really any food-flavored conversation, is a popular topic among women in midlife. So it’s no wonder that this one hit the top #1 podcast for 2021. Another interview episode this one with the team at Wise & Well. Maria Claps and Kristin Johnson and I break down the reasons behind advocating for animal protein for hormone support. It may ruffle your feathers, it may confirm what you thought or your body was telling you, but either way I think you’ll be glad you listened.
