Episode #504 It’s that time of year! Time to countdown the top 10 Flipping50 Podcasts for Menopause Health & Fitness in 2021! It’s all based on your votes by downloads.
In case you didn’t know, Flipping50 has been around now since at least 2014. To be honest some of the early years are sketchy! I had no idea what I was doing, I just knew it needed to be done. So This podcast started somewhere before that and so.. although there are already more than 527 episodes, I didn’t start numbering early on so I’m actually only at episode 504. How’s that for a hot menopause mystery?
All things considered, not a big deal. It does show I didn’t have a good vision. I couldn’t have imagined that we’d be approaching 2 million downloads or supporting a community of over 250,000 women in menopause. Many of you came from my YouTube channel, or Facebook or saw Flipping50TV episodes. Some of you “met” me from my TEDx talk.
Wherever we met, I’m grateful – for you and for the stories you share, the questions you ask, that all help someone else. It takes a village and each individual in it.
So, let’s do this… as any respectable Iowa girl would do it, Letterman style.
The 10th Top Flipping 50 Podcast for Menopause Health & Fitness is….
Eat less, exercise more, so goes the dogma. It’s wrong. Dead wrong. Are you eating enough for your fitness to stand a chance getting the rewards you want?
This is an interview episode with Pam Sherman who was a part time group fitness instructor for 2 decades when an accident tested how truly fit she was and changed the value of her health.
I’m both glad and a bit alarmed about this one making the top 10 podcasts for menopause health & fitness list this year. Glad because this rumor and strategy is potentially limiting progress, keeping you exhausted, and ignoring science. Alarmed because it tells me that a lot of fitness professionals – or at least fitness marketers – are suggesting you work out as a body builder or figure competitor in midlife which has a strong potential to wreak havoc with your hormones.
Bottom line, is it is always about evidence of monitoring your body fat and muscle, your sleep, stress, belly fat, and energy levels just to name a few, that should determine if it’s working for you.
The 7th Top Menopause Health Podcast of 2021….
By the way if you’re listening to the Top 10 Menopause Podcasts for Health & Fitness at the end of 2021 or beginning of 2022, I have a couple resources for you. First, it’s my annual tradition to do a Planning session with you Live on Facebook between Christmas and New Years.

So there’s something for everyone, if you just want FREE, you know you need support and this feels like a good fit.. or you’re just saying YES to yourself and jumping into the membership while we’re open.
Any talk about protein and muscle or fat is a hot topic for us here. So, this detailed podcast will explain the importance not just of what, but of when you eat. Distributing protein correctly around your workout and throughout the day is far more beneficial than allowing an app to tell you that you hit a number at the end of the day.

The 5th Top Flipping 50 Podcast for Menopause Health & Fitness is…
Is it fat? Is it bloat? Is it lack of muscle tone?
If it’s fat, from where? If it’s bloat, from where?

I look at menopause as a sport. Here’s how to train.
If you can lift heavy, you should. But what if you can’t? How to reach fatigue and be successful when you can’t go heavy is what this episode is all about.
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.
