Non-Diet Resolutions with Dr. Jenn Salib-Huber, N.D.

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

 

Dr. Jenn Salib-Huber and I discuss why most January resolutions fail and how women can make change in a way that supports both their mental and physical health without starting another diet. 

We also discuss the destructive willpower-based diet cycle and how to get out of it for good. Dr. Jenn explains how we can empower ourselves when it comes to making lasting, resonant change around our relationship with food, including letting go of all or nothing thinking. I talk about my decision to ditch the scale four years ago and all the freedom that has come with that.

Navigating Midlife Health Care with Dr. Sarah Baillie, N.D.

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Sarah and I discuss the key things women need to know to advocate effectively for themselves and navigate our complex health care system in midlife, particularly with respect to their perimenopause and menopausal symptoms. Sarah explains why women often require a team of caregivers instead of one doctor, your rights as a patient, the difference between conventional pharmaceutical BHRT and compounded hormones, and what to do if you’re questioning the advice you’ve been given. I share my experience building my own team and navigating the health care system since dropping into full menopause very suddenly in 2020. There are so many great tips in this episode – don’t skip this one!

No More Fu*#s to Give: The Midilife Woman's Anthem (with Dr. Sarah Baillie)

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Inspired by a song called “I’ve Got No More Fuc#$ to Give” that I stumbled across on YouTube,  Sarah and I share how our feeling of having “no more fuc#$ to give” has shown up in our personal and work lives, and how common a headspace this seems to be for all women in midlife.

We discuss why this is happening, from a social, emotional, and hormonal perspective, and what to do about it if you’re feeling guilty about caring less. We also consider whether this midlife phenomenon isn’t really more a “shifting of fuc#$” as opposed to “having less fuc#$”, and how that shifting might benefit you as well as the other people in your life, including your children. Are you the adult you want your kids to become?

Join Sarah and me for a spirited, fun conversation with an important undercurrent: it’s totally OK to start focussing on you again as you move into your...

This is 50

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below. 

On my 50th birthday, I reflect on my life to date, my fears about hitting 50, and the surprising (and refreshing!) reality that came with the actual day. I share my goals for this decade including my commitment to having “fun for fun’s sake” and “filling up my joy bucket” to help me in the transition to empty nester that is coming soon.

“This is 50” will be a regular installment of the podcast going forward – sometimes featuring a 50-something guest with a story to share around her 50s to date, sometimes an update on my 50th year, and sometimes a conversation with the always-popular Bite-Sized Balance co-host, Dr. Sarah Baillie.

What Women Want To Know

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Sarah and I reflect on the first Women Talking Frankly coaching program that we ran in the early summer, including a discussion of our favourite parts and the lessons we learned from the incredible group of women in this first iteration of the missing conversation around women’s burnout, hormones, and midlife.

We talk about new bits of the missing conversation that bear exploring in future episodes, including the complicated nature of women’s libido in midlife, the gifts of pelvic floor therapy, the importance of boundaries when it comes to creating a life you don’t want to escape from, and weight management during perimenopause and menopause.

Dr. Jenn Salib-Huber, ND, RD - "What To Eat When You're Hormonal"

Watch the episode, above, or listen, below!

Jenn Salib-Huber, Intuitive Eating Coach, R.D. & N.D., and I discuss what’s going on with our bodies and hormones during perimenopause and menopause and what we can do to our hormones and wellness through a “food-first” approach.

Specific topics include: “Meno Rage” (that out-of-body experience of wild anger that our hormones can trigger!), the “mid-life pleasure deficit” and how that can affect cravings, emotional eating and the importance of an experiment mindset & self-compassion, why soy does not cause breast cancer, the role of estrogen in weight gain and why we should celebrate it, and mindful and intuitive eating as the key to food freedom.

This is a conversation all women should hear!

Christina’s Story - Finding Freedom from Food & Alcohol

 

Watch the podcast episode, above, or listen, below!

This is my first of (I hope!) many client interview episodes. I think you'll love Christina's story as much as I have loved being part of it!

At the young age of 12, when she realized she needed a size bigger pair of pants than her friend, Christina started down a lifelong path of dieting, weight loss, weight gain, and body shame.

Exhausted and physically unwell, she reached out to me one year ago, at the end of her rope and ready to try different, not just harder. My holistic approach to healthy change was something she’d never tried before, but by embracing curiosity and self-compassion, Christina was able to achieve her goal of true freedom from food. She felt so great, she then tackled her unhealthy relationship with alcohol.

Constant thoughts of food and alcohol no longer consume her, and she’s loving how present and joyful she feels in all aspects of her life. In this episode, Christina...

Guest Dr. Jenn Salib-Huber, ND, RD - "Intuitive Eating"

 Watch the podcast, above, or listen to audio only, below!

 

In the second episode of Bite-Sized Balance, host Wendy McCallum, Certified Burnout & Balance Coach, interviews Jenn Salib-Huber, Registered Dietitian, and Naturopathic Doctor. In Wendy's opinion, the commercial weight loss system is brilliantly designed to create a lifelong customer, but the cycle it perpetuates is destroying women's psyches. Did you know the failure rate for diets is a whopping 95%?

 

There's a better & kinder way to get healthy, and intuitive eating principles are key. As Jenn says, "nutrition needs to come from a place of self-care, not self-control". The conversation gets a bit spicy as Wendy & Jenn share their collective 26+ years of experience working with women, exploring their relationship with food and the lies we've been "fed" by the conventional weight loss industry.

 

In practice for more than 16 years, Jenn helps women navigate the physical and emotional...
