After the stark realization that something had to change... she started the process of learning how to break free from the invisible bonds of anxiety and has spent over 20 years researching holistic, natural, and scientifically proven methodologies.

At just over 5’2” tall, and not having made her first Olympic team until the age of 27, Sheila Taormina seems an unlikely candidate to have competed at four consecutive summer Olympiads in three completely different sports (swimming, triathlon, and modern pentathlon). Her first two attempts to qualify for the Olympics in swimming (1988 and 1992) came up short, during what were considered her “peak” years. Following those years she moved forward with her education, finishing her Master’s degree in Business in 1994, and then began her professional career in the automotive industry that same year, working a full-time salaried position in Detroit.

Today's a topic show where we talk about how your brain integration begins by connecting with your purpose neurologically. How this can be a crucial component to making a change or forming a new habit or belief.
We also talked about how to look at your doctor as a consultant rather than an authority and how sugar can be a therapeutic source of fuel for the brain since your brain runs primarily on glucose. The bottom line is, if your body's not getting glucose from the diet it'll make and take glucose by breaking down the tissues in your body.
Why is there so much conflicting information in the nutrition industry? We discovered it may come down to the source of our information.

Good health was a no longer defined by how many hours she could work out, how much will-power she had, or how low her body fat could get.

Kate Deering is back on our show for a second time. We're so honored to have her on to talk about how you can raise your metabolism by changing your beliefs and by focusing on what you really want. So many times we sabotage ourselves because of beliefs we picked up from diet dogmas, society and our parents.
Since our brains are programed for weight loss, we can forget about what really matters most when it comes to our quality of life and overall health. It can be scary for most people to completely change the way they eat so that's why it's crucial to connect with your purpose behind the change and habit so that you're better able to make a longer lasting more sustainable change.
Kate explains how this all leads back to raising your metabolism ultimately because you're lowering your stress and supporting your body's recovery system. Kate shares with us the best way to get your mind on track with your body for metabolic success.
