Episode 84: Geeky Magic – Fat Loss
If you say you want to lose weight, what you really mean is that you want to lose fat. Now that we’ve made that important distinction, losing stubborn fat is possible with a strategic exercise routine, a supportive diet, and less stress around sugar and carbs.
Speaking of sugar, I’d like to get something straight: Insulin is not the enemy. In fact, in many ways, insulin is your friend. Learn how insulin and your menstrual cycle play a role in your fat loss plan and discover how to become a fat-burning machine with things like resistance training, cold exposure and creative solutions for quick cardio sessions.
Make sure you get access to the show notes, they are packed with more information, diagrams, and resources for this episode.
For those of you who didn’t catch last week's Geeky Magic, it was about beauty and symmetry. Listen here. Geeky Magic is a new type of episode I’m adding to the line up to take a step away from the interviews. I’m going to bring you personal insights, FAQ’s, and trending topics in a more condensed, quick, and actionable way.
