#10 How chronic inflammation can interfere with your best life after 50!
Since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, Elizabeth Yarnell has been studying how to manage autoimmunity naturally as a traditional naturopath and Certified LEAP Therapist. She’s worked with hundreds of MS and other autoimmune sufferers in her nationwide clinic using unique, personalized natural therapies to empower them to reclaim their health. She’s a TEDx speaker, award-winning author whose cookbook has sold more than 60,000 copies, a patented inventor, and has been featured on CBS, NBC, ABC, and PBS as well as in Good Housekeeping, Health, Martha Stewart Living Radio, and many other outlets.
#9 How to Eat for Strength Training for Women
One of the hardest lessons for women to learn is that you have to eat for strength training to work. The first inclination is to “eat less and exercise more.” Of course, it’s been the message on social and unfortunately, even from the fitness industry, for years.
This episode and my guest will dispel those age-old myths. We’re going to look at the needs of women over 40, and discuss what lifting heavy means. We’ll share what she recommends for lifting frequency for women over 40 and explore optimal training as well as how you know you’re lifting the right weight.
#8 Intermittent Fasting for Women | Health & Wellness | When Yes When No
This episode is all about Intermittent fasting for women in midlife. I’ve got one of the most globally recognized experts with me talking about the what’s the whys and the whens… as well as the when not to’s.
If you’ve dabbled, you’ve shunned it, you’ve been tempted… chances are you still have some questions. We’ll answer many here in our discussion.
#7 Why Menopause Weight loss is So Hard and How Your Brain is Taking Over
Weight loss is so hard! I’ve heard that a million times. But why can’t we crack that code? Well, my guest today is sharing how your brain has hi-jacked your weight-loss wishes and what’s working against you. She’s also got a solution. And trust me you do not want to miss it when I ask her why she’s doing “this.”
Her story is a must-hear. If you think no one understands your relationship with food or disordered eating, stay right here.
Spoiler alert – I’ll give you two take-aways from this episode:
Planning ahead is a must. Automate eating. And that’s just because there’s so much more juicy content inside.
If you’ve said it, weight loss is so hard, this is for you.
#6 The Missing Link in Weight Loss for Women Over 50
Weight loss for women over 50 is illusive. Right? What you used to do doesn’t work anymore. They talk of inflammation, and yet you don’t feel badly when you eat the foods they suggest cause it. If you’re feeling torn between what you’re reading, hearing, and old school lessons or lifelong habits, this may help you understand the connection between gut health and weight loss for women over 50.
My guest is a bestie and an expert, what could be better, right? He’s everywhere you’ve seen experts… Dr. Oz, Mind body green, a guest on dozens of popular podcasts. I’ve had the good fortune to know not only Dr. Pedre but to dine next to the person he is and I’ll just say this, you’ll want to know him too. (and salsa with him if he will)
You’ve got endurance! You’re halfway through this list of top 10 podcasts 2022! Hang in there! I’d love to know… have you listened to them already and would these have been YOUR vote too?
A little inside intel – we’ve had this convo behind the scenes that in fairness to my recent guests and podcast episodes we need to do this in June too for the past 12 months. We did weight some of our recent episodes in such a way that we didn’t ignore those that just haven’t gotten enough time to have downloads yet. Even so.. Episodes from last week, just won’t have had the chance to prove themselves yet!!
OKAY.. enough halftime show, on with the top 10 podcasts 2022 edition!!
#5 Fat Loss in Menopause: It’s Not What You Think
If you spend half a minute on social media, you could be led to believe fat gain in menopause is normal and fat loss in menopause is hard and requires extremes. If you want to invest a few minutes here, I’m going to do the best I can to convince you otherwise.
You might also be here and it’s not that you gained weight in menopause, but you were already carrying it. But now a few more pounds have made it too unbearable. You’re not feeling like yourself and don’t like the look of your future.
This episode explains the interaction of your hormones on your fat loss efforts. Whether it’s isolated to belly fat for you or it’s an overall inflammatory response meaning you carry extra weight throughout your body, this is for you!
#4 Perfection Detox for the Mindset of Midlife Success
Need a perfection detox? Or have you shed that skin already? No matter where you are, this message resonates with women over 50. Even younger women are tired of being tired in pursuit of something they know they can never have, be, or enjoy.
In this interview episode, my guest shares her own journey through perfection detox. I think you’ll be able to relate. We’ve talked liver detox, electronic and digital detox, so why not perfection detox?
This interview with fitness icon Petra Kolber was so much fun. A sucker for an accent it was awesome for me, and she’s a lovely person as much as she is talented and living the follow-your-dreams not your same-old-road advice we often hear but may be reluctant to do.
#3 You Ask Libido and Hormone Balance Questions: Dr John Gray Answers
Libido and hormone balance questions were at the top of the list for our community members.
Today you want to plan a long hike. Take us with you. Then share it with a friend and listen together after they listen. If you’re listening for yourself, you’re still going to want to hit replay.
What I love as much as anything about this episode is that Dr John Gray became popular in the 80’s and 90’s. Today, in 2022, he got lit up during this episode. He is still as passionate and purposeful about what he is doing as ever. My wish for myself and for you is that we all have that kind of purpose-driven passion in our lives for as long as possible.
If you’re familiar with the Mars and Venus books you’ll love this. If you’re not, you’ll want to read them!
#2 Questions About Gaining Muscle and Strength for Women Over 50
Recently I shared a study about the loss of muscle (sarcopenia) during menopause and since, questions about gaining muscle and strength over 50 have been pouring in. In this Q and A episode I’m answering them. They’re split, about half are about exercise and the other half are about the protein that you seem to know you need.
There’s confusion about how to juggle intermittent fasting, getting enough protein, and whether fed or fasted exercise is best for gaining lean muscle. I’ll try to answer many of your questions. I by no means think this is a one-and-done episode that will eliminate any questions!
#1 More Strength, Less Cardio in Menopause & Beyond
More strength and less cardio in menopause is not an easy pill to swallow for many of you listeners. Until you do. Until it feels good to feel good and you realize that being tired all the time isn’t necessary, required, or even going to work to optimize your weight and body composition.
This interview episode with Dr. Stacy Sims will help you understand the physiology behind the need for adequate muscle stimulus. You’ll hear what that is, and what it isn’t.
Stacy is renowned for her tagline, Women Aren’t Small Men. We’re singing the same song, as we at Flipping 50 tell you, you’re not a man, a mouse, or a young woman – not even younger you – so exercising for the hormones you do have now will make all the difference to your results now and those you want for decades.
Many thanks to Dr Stacy Sims not only for this interview episode, but for the work she’s doing to help women grow older stronger.
