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.

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!

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...

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...
