Episode Overview

When you go on a diet, you lose weight. End of story. Right?

Wrong. In 1945 one of the first and most comprehensive studies on the physical and psychological effects of semi-starvation was completed. This study was later dubbed the Minnesota Starvation Experiment. The findings that researchers learned from this experiment still hold true today. Only now we know it’s not just those who have endured periods of starvation who will suffer with these consequences, DIETERS will suffer with them too.

Whether you’re a past dieter, current dieter, or a person looking to jump off of the diet hamster wheel…this episode is going to knock your socks off. Enjoy!

My Morning Coffee Date 

Especially in 2020, having a little positivity is so important. Every time I listen to this podcast, not only do I have a smile on my face, I discover something about myself. And I consider myself to have a whole hell of a lot of self-awareness to begin with! It's almost cliche to say this now but it truly feels like you're having coffee with girlfriends!
