We all do it. Someone asks us the question in passing, “How are you?” not really caring about the answer, but simply asking it because it’s the thing to do. We in return smile, and answer, “Good!” when in actuality, we actually aren’t good. We aren’t fine. Our day/week/month/year isn’t going as we’d hoped. But instead of telling the truth, we smile and put a face on: “I’m good! How are you?” We are missing authenticity in this world, the ability to actually connect with people in real life,...
When does telling ourselves we “shouldn’t” eat this or that actually work in helping us reach our goals?

Contrary to popular belief, our health is based on more than just what our diet and exercise regime looks like. Our mindset plays a major role in whether or not we see progress in our health goals (weight loss, improved digestion, balanced hormones, etc), and until we start to give our mindset the attention it deserves, we will remain stuck!

Listen in to today’s episode to learn all about the right kinds of fats, which...
