On today’s episode of EMBody Radio, I had the pleasure of interviewing Tanya Zuckerbrot, MS, RD, and the founder of the incredible weight loss solution, theF-Factor™ diet. F-Factor™ is based on scientific principles of nutrition, and provides a liberating and sustainable way to approach weight loss and health for life. In our interview, we talked ALL things fiber, including: -How Tanya “accidentally” created a really successful weight loss program while trying to help improve disease markers in cardiovascular patients and diabetics. -The structure and function of dietary fiber. -Why fiber is a great weight loss aid. -How fiber works to improve everything from gut health, to cholesterol, to blood glucose, to even healthy hormone regulation. -Why you need fiber to build the physique of your dreams. -How to get more fiber into your day, especially when you’re a busy business-woman/parent/athlete/all of the above. -Health trends that actually aren’t so healthy. -So much more! --------------------------   If you want to check out more about Tanya and theF-Factor™ Diet, the new 2018 edition of the F-Factor book just came out.

EP 27 The Psychology of Fat Loss and Sustainable Dieting | with Sohee Lee

On today's episode of EMBody Radio, I had the pleasure of interviewing Sohee Lee. Sohee and I have followed each other on social media for a while now, and she is AWESOME. She has a degree in Human Biology from Stanford and is completing her Master's degree in Psychology as it relates to Eating Habits. Today we're talking all things food psychology, the psychology of fat loss, focusing on sustainability, making the diet fit the client and not the other way around, shifting our mindsets around food, and so much more. Everyone out there who has ever dieted will be able to both relate to and learn from this episode. Find Sohee here:  "Eat. Lift. Thrive." by Sohee Lee: https://www.amazon.com/Eat-Lift-Thrive-Sohee-Lee/dp/1492545902/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1518048194&sr=8-1&keywords=sohee+lee IG: https://www.instagram.com/soheefit/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/soheefit YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/SoheeFit ---------------------- We all know how important sleep is, especially for athletes. It’s where we do the majority of our recovering from training, it’s what leaves us feeling fresh and ready to get after it the following day, and it’s extremely important for maintaining hormonal balance within the body. If you aren’t getting a good night’s sleep, you’re missing out on a huge portion of your fitness journey. I’ve been using a PerformaSleep mattress for over a year now, and my sleep has never been better. Every PerformaSleep mattress has this thing called CopperGel Technology, which offers a cooler nights sleep and  added support where needed.  It helps you’re your spine in proper alignment, which helps prevent any back pain.  It also doesn't use traditional memory foam. Instead, they use Enersorb. Enersorb cradles your body to alleviate pressure, but also has a little bounce to it. So instead of sinking into a bed, it’s like floating right on top of a comfy cloud. The top of each mattress is made with TenCel, a wicking fabric that helps you sleep cooler. On top of that, all Performa Sleep mattress are made right at home here in the US. I can honestly say I can’t imagine not sleeping on a Performa Sleep mattress now that I’ve had one for so long. If you want to start getting the best sleep of your life, head over to PerformaSleep.com and use the code “EMILY125” for $125 off your mattress. ---------------------- Find me here: https://www.emilyduncanfitness.com/ IG: https://www.instagram.com/em_dunc/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/em_dunc YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/emdunc

This week's episode of EMBody Radio hits near and dear to my heart. As someone who struggled with amenorrhea, was misdiagnosed with PCOS, and was tired of being dismissed by OBGYN after OBGYN because I was "lean and athletic, so not having a period is normal," period talk is SO important to me.

Today I'm joined by author Nicola Rinaldi behind the book No Period, Now What?, a book that absolutely changed my life when it came to learning about my body, my periods, why they weren't happening, and why they matter so much. On today's episode, we talk about:  -What is hypothalamic amenorrhea?
