Hormones after breast cancer has always been a rigid no. For most. Not all. My guest today is not only a breast cancer survivor but a doctor and estrogen “think tank” participant. If you or someone you know has or has had breast cancer, this is a must.
Perhaps you've watched your grandparents and parents age. It’s your turn. Ready to change the way you age? Most boomers and 50+ women are and this episode has just the sassy attitude to support you. My guest this episode is someone I am very confident you are familiar with and I’m so excited to have him here. Meet Marc Middleton of Growing Bolder.
The more you learn about women's hormones the more you know there is to know. This is an exciting time. As I like to say there's never be a more exciting time to be flipping 50. This is the first in a few episodes this month addressing women's hormones and perhaps flipping your thoughts on your future.
Explore your choices, re-examine your current options, and combine lifestyle habits for the optimal aging you want, need, and deserve.
If you doubt your personal power to change your health and your life – whether you HAVE an autoimmune condition or you want to prevent autoimmune conditions - this episode is for you. My guest today has more on the topic. But don’t tune out if you don’t have MS or an autoimmune disease. You too can benefit.
This is a regular question when I’m a guest on podcasts or summits or on a panel. So it’s one I may take for granted you already know the answer to. Let’s make sure that you do!
The biggest key difference in the traditional approach to exercise and hormone-balancing exercise is that you choose and adjust your exercise program based on your hormone status.
When it feels like you’re doing it all and nothing works…
You skip a workout and it’s like 5 more pounds come on.
You do the workouts and you’re slammed with fatigue. Still, no weight comes off.
If you’re in this place you’ve heard other women talk about but never really got til now… you’re in the right spot.
I’m going to unpack two sides of this equation.
How do you get better results? You've been there: stuck in same old repeating patterns. You started so well. You got to the middle thinking this is it. Then, nope. Same problems, and same obstacles bubble up again. How can you prevent those obstacles that prevent your results?
During midlife hormonal shifts you are more susceptible to negative effects of stress since you’ve got more sources… sleep disturbances, progesterone tanks, libido drops and intimacy with your best friend could be an issue, caught between anything from kindergarteners to aging parents.. you’ve got the perfect storm.
Are you Mindful About Aging, Fitness, Food?
Is the way you think about your habits, your every day habits that create the level of health which you currently have, aging you or slowing the process? Mindful practice of your inner and outer conversations may have more influence on your aging process than anything else that you do.
Gain Strength After 50? Can I gain muscle and gain strength after 50? Two frequent questions I’m asked. And for good reason! Muscle mass not only contributes to your metabolism but it determines your successful independent living later in life. When I began presenting on stages internationally in the 90’s I often said sexy now is one thing but later it’s going to be who can carry their own tray in the dining room. Truth. Today’s episode is in part about some of the research making waves and about contents of the Flipping 50 Member box too good not to share. In the Flipping 50 Member box recently we’ve added super strength bands- also known as blood flow restriction bands used in a special Kaatsu training method. As always the Flipping 50 Member Box is filled with items vetted and used by me and I also love to introduce you to the creators and people behind the company. That’s what today is all about. In the show notes I’ll be linking to the products –F50MB subscribers have a special market place access to find at a better rate – and I’ll also link to a recent blog all about the technique complete with videos. The method is going to be an extra bonus for STRONGER I participants this last quarter of 2019. My Guest My guest is creator of BFR bands that went into our Flipping 50 Member box this month. As a personal trainer, Kusha Karvandi has trained over 10,000 hours of one-on-one sessions. With over 20 nationally-recognized certifications, and a unique specialty in neuroscience, Kusha's ability to transform his clients is unlike any other coach in the fitness industry. Although considered the eternal student, Kusha describes his coaching philosophy by the latin word "docere" which implies 'coach as teacher.' Kusha is the creator of the BFR Bands, designed for the research-backed form of training known as blood flow restriction training, which helps you gain muscle tone and strength without lifting heavy weight. Questions We Answer in This Episode: So, if a woman is able to lift heavy and willing to, research seems to prefer results from heavy to results from blood flow restriction bandsalthough there's promise in the gains from BFR (compared to not using them with light loads), do you concur? What if any research is there about bone density benefits? That said, there's a lot of great opportunity for strength after 50 in using BFR including less recovery time, an easy travel alternative, or during bedrest/other injury or life getting in the way of the "gym" an easy way to prevent muscle loss - do you have some customer stories to share? Let's talk about protocol for listeners that varies from the traditional 2-3 times a week strength training protocol? What's the ideal frequency? And in terms of sets and repetitions, let's talk about that for listeners seeking strength after 50 because that too is unique... Let's talk about the elephant in the room... the bands look like some big muscle head in the deep dark of the weight room would use them. In fact, when you go shopping online it's pretty apparent that they are intended for body builders, or figure competitors, there's not a menopausal female in any of the ads I saw for over 2 dozen different products, are you trying to change that? Why and how? So, truth there is some research on older adults, both resistance training, aerobic exercising, and even at rest or bedrest ... what areas show promise for this tool with regard to age? Should my listeners be using it? or should they be using it for their parents seeking strength after 50!? Last, we're super excited about the lower body bands our Flipping 50 member box subscribers are getting gifted! Do you also have upper body bands? We don't want to skip that!

Let me introduce America's Holistic Beauty Doc. What exactly is Holistic Plastic Surgery?
What is it and why is this surgeon so unique in his approach? How can you get younger looking skin? What is the lowdown on Botox? Safe, harmful, or prowess with caution? I answer all this and so much more with my guest in this episode. He shared inside secrets from behind the scalpel today.
Getting thyroid support, beyond medication, for the follow through for taking the medication, and doing the things that can be overwhelming when you’re first diagnosed isn’t easy. Who, after all, gets it?
Someone who’s been there and done that does.
What a mouthful, osteosarcopenia. This condition that refers to bone and muscle losses is relatively new. There is a lack of consensus among researchers on what to call it (sarco-osteopenia, sarco-osteoporosis, osteosarcopenia). No matter what they name it, for you and I this is a topic we need to unpack.
For me, infrared sauna was a health investment, but it was mostly for relaxing and recovery. I loved the idea of natural detox and increased metabolism. But it wasn’t until I was exposed to months of mold in the house I rented that I realized how fortunate I was to already have it right there in my home.
Exercise influences hormones. Hormones influence exercise. You, already know this. I’ve said it before here at Flipping 50. But you already know because there are days you don’t feel like exercising, or you feel like the mirror isn’t reflecting the consistent hard work you’ve done.
Hydrogen water is created when you add extra hydrogen molecules to water (which is already hydrogen and oxygen). You can buy it in a can, purchase a machine to split the molecules and add the hydrogen, or use a tablet which is what we’re talking about today.
Seeking freedom from diets, food “rules,” and good food/bad food? My guest began this work in her 50s. She’s 64. Know How to Diet but Don’t Know How to Eat?
]The very thing that is used to treat damage done by eating disorders puts fear in someone who has this disordered eating. Ignoring the real problem won’t give you the freedom from diets, food rules, and constant thinking about food that you want.
How would you like to be at Whole Foods looking at a product and know if it’s worth your health or worth your money in about 10 seconds?
How's that related to hormone balancing fitness? The question is, how's it not? Everything you put on and in you effects your endocrine system positively or negatively.
Want to Start Running (or Start Anything?)
My guest Tracy today started running at 45. She is hooked. She has done 5 marathons in a year. Where can you catch that?
She didn’t start running until around age 45. She have watched her parents be very active in triathlon for the last 30 years. Both doing Kona multiple times and her dad earning 1st place at age 66 in Kona.
Michelle Melendez is the creator of the Live in a Body You Love 90-program and Hawaii Retreat and author “End Dieting Hell: How to find peace with your body and lose weight.” She has lead thousands of live and online fitness classes and has helped women around the world understand and release their emotional addiction to being overweight.
First, that’s a strong statement… “emotional addiction to being overweight.”
What retirement looks like is up to you. At least if you’ve given it the planning health, wellness, and financial security to do it. Retirement for today’s guest involves a lot of swimming, biking, and running. She rode 100 miles last week in preparation for two races this weekend.
How to Beat Fatigue with Exercise
If you suffer from chronic fatigue, thyroid issues, and specifically Hashimoto’s then this is your episode. My guest is an expert, she’s helped herself and as a chiropractor and strength expert she supports may women looking to beat fatigue with exercise.
Yet, your exercise could actually be causing or contributing to your problem.

If you want healthy body composition (less body fat and more lean muscle tissue) and you’re post menopause, sprint intervals are proven to get you there.
Visceral body fat, especially, is correlated with increased risk of heart disease. If you want to maintain your health as you age, this lesser prescribed activity may be your ticket.
You’ll want to read/listen to this.
Mindset shifts are a must if you’re pursuing better fitness during menopause or after. You had socialization and conditioning that influenced you heavily at a time when, well, you were easily influenced.
Mid-life Weight Loss Success is soooo possible!
If you’re in midlife not loving your weight, energy, or your life it’s never too late. My guest today is proof. She shares her own midlife weight loss success and how it spiraled into a new career path.
Mindset shifts are a must if you’re pursuing better fitness during menopause or after. You had socialization and conditioning that influenced you heavily at a time when, well, you were easily influenced.
You potentially buried yourself between then and now under the business of life. My students and clients tell me that they were busy in their careers and or families, not eating all that well, not finding time for exercise, and not feeling they needed it.

To those not yet indoctrinated into essential oils for weight loss, overall health, avoiding toxins and the list goes on, this is for you too! And I’ve got a fantastic guest for delivering this message.
Why your food struggles can be a blessing in disguise
Food struggles are a reality for most people at some point in their lives. Women traditionally have spent more time in the kitchen, planning if not preparing food.
Get your pet to sleep ... so you can!
Got aging pets that keep you awake at night?
Are they keeping you from getting the sleep your hormone needs? If hormone heaven for you is evasive right now thanks to four-legged loves, this episode is for you!
n this episode I rounded up 7 expert friends and asked them to share their best sleep tips. Many of them gave not only advice they give clients or patients, but what they personally do to be the high-functioning movers and shakers in functional health & wellness that they are.
"When You Want To Want Sex, But You Don’t.”
Get ready for a shame-free straight talk about a hot topic in midlife. One either talked about or the elephant in the room. When you want to want sex you want my guest today.
She’s not bashful or shy about her approach. So if you’re squeamish talking about it, hearing about it, or you’ve got kids in the room, grab your headset, girlfriend.
In the fitness and health space we occupy here at Flipping 50 how to manage your money is not a common topic. It is however a common stressor. In that way, its relevant.
So often obstacles to reaching fitness goals are not tied to physical limitations or to knowledge alone but often to the stressors – we’ve recently talked about relationships – (I link to that show) – and to money.
Your healthy weight may not be the number in your head. If you’ve been attached to a number on the scale, been attached to the scale period, you’re potential for self-sabotage is high.
... the days of “eat less, exercise more” have caught up to you and how your metabolism has suffered. I’ll share the common mistakes, the how to restart your metabolism, with a lifestyle that doesn’t include over exercise or undereating.
Do you need to reboot your brain? What if the secret to cravings, brain fog, burn out was more than exercise and dieting? If you've been completely in the physical, a shift to above the shoulders may be in order.
When you want to feel better and want natural remedies that support your body’s ability to heal itself, look no further. This episode has a wealth of tips for food, living, and using essential oils- a favorite health remedy topic for Flipping 50 listeners.
My guest, SABRINA ANN ZIELINSKI is a certified group fitness and martial arts instructor, health coach, lactation consultant, and a natural health guru. The mastermind behind the allergy-friendly food recipes and do-it-yourself remedies ...
Leptin resistance, less referred to than insulin resistance, often exists in overweight and obese women and interferes with ability to lose weight.
Do you fail to lose weight even when you diet and exercise? Are you 20 or more pounds overweight? Are you highly stressed? Are you sleep deprived? and...
Do you couch-compensate?
Hormone balancing doesn't have to rely on bio-identical hormones. You don't have to wonder if you can afford functional doctor or bio-identical hormones, or supplements. You first need to understand how to exercise - and support it with habits including eating the right foods at the right time. Hormone balancing gets its foundation in the habits you do daily.
Hormone balancing will be a struggle if you ignore the powerful impact your small daily habits have.
Natural solutions for a sexy younger you... doesn't that sound yummy? My guest today is all about the Flipping 50 lifestyle. It's as if she co-wrote You Still Got It, Girl! because she totally repeats our mantra: eat more, exercise less, and sleep yourself skinny... you'll love her!
Solid and stable relationships are foundational to self care –whether we’re talking with a significant other or friendships – that’s where our conversation started.
Eighteen year-old Stanley Padgett married his seventeen-year-old high school sweetheart in what easily could have been another divorce statistic. Another couple who naively wed too young and couldn't make it work.
don’t have time to work out.
This post is not going to sit well with you potentially. So read this next couple sentences carefully.
If you’re content to complain about not having time or energy to workout and you truly think that on summer break or once you retire, or that it must be easier for someone who doesn’t live where you live or work the kind of job you work, or have kids and a spouse or kids and no spouse…

Recorded this last day of the 50% off rate, I don't want you to miss out if it's perfect for you and want to be sure you don't register if it's wrong for you right now.
First things first: cellulite reduction and this conversation is not about perfection! It IS about confidence though. Not feeling your best can rock your confidence and who needs that!?
Cottage cheese. Dimples. Whatever you call it, no one wants to see it. Do cellulite reduction solutions actually work? Do they have to hurt? Are results temporary or permanent?
Back in 2016 I shared a 4-step cellulite reduction solutions process and it worked.
Protein intake and strength training together are your dynamic duo for aging and loving it.
1) Protein was the determining factor when high or low carbohydrate intake didn’t have an impact on successful aging. “Successful” was determined by an integrated rating of social, physical, and mental performance.
Join me as I read from the You Still Got It, Girl! The After 50 Fitness Formula for Women. From preface, to forward and introduction I share words of Dr. Pamela Peeke, PEW scholar and my own for you to enjoy, share, and get inspired about a new direction for yourself right now.
The book, and the course (which I shamelessly tease- and offer you special incentive to get in on using code: 50fitness) are both based on 7 key areas.
Are You Ready to Reset Your Hormones Naturally Using Essential Oils? Gimmicky diets, dangerous supplements, juice fasts, extreme boot camps… are you done, yet?
How do other women seemingly have energy, and the body, while you struggle? Dr Mariza Snyder answers all your questions!
New Year’s best intentions have already fallen by the wayside for 80% of people. Part of the reason for that is the myth that a habit takes 3 weeks and you’re home free.
I’m not sure if many of the 21-Day challenges tease you based on that premise or not. I’ve been writing about this myth of the 3-week habit change since 1987. It’s a lie.
One of my all-time favorite guests on a hot topic for our Flipping 50 community is back with me on this episode. He’s talking about a topic we all care about today, metabolism and metabolism reset. And he’s got a resource I’m excited to share with you that you’re going to want to get your hands on.

Are You Sick of Technology? Staying Well in a Digital World
Are you sick of tech? Could you be?
My guest is Dr. Heidi Forbes Öste, Digital Wellbeing and Ethics Evangelist (just flipped 50 in September)
Today’s episode is all about simple meal prep. We could all use a hand making the right thing the easy thing.
Do you know what’s for supper?
Do you have a grocery list based on exactly what recipes you’re going to make next?
My guest in this episode made simple meal prep a reality on several levels. The one lingering reason to listen to this episode might just be deeper than time.
Do you wish you could lose weight faster or get healthy easier?
Have you started and stopped an exercise program before?
Are you perhaps dreading another year of wanting to lose weight without a new plan for making that a reality?
If you said yes, to any of those this is your podcast.
Allan Misner is a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer and a Functional Aging Institute (FAI) Certified Functional Aging Specialist.
This episode is one of my favorite of the year. It’s the round up of the most 10 popular podcasts of 2018. It includes the most downloaded, commented on, and shared and I thank you, listener, for voting!
On the episode I counted down David Letterman style from 10 to 1, here they appear in order beginning with the most popular.
This episode is the second of a special 2-part mini series intended to help you figure out how to make this oh-so important component of strength training exercise a regular part of your routine in 2019 and beyond.
This after all is the time of year we’re all committing, or recommitting to our health and fitness. Just a shameless plug, this special series is brought to you by my program STRONGER, a 12-week strength training program.
Start light if you’re just beginning.
When you start strength training there is no need (or benefit) to lifting heavy. The neural component is responsible for changes in the muscle the first 4 weeks at least. So more weight won’t get more results faster.
This round up of 2018 research and resources will help you age better, get stronger, and lose weight for good after menopause. Most of the studies were published, a couple were pilots presented at conferences and a bonus 8thresearch study from 2015 I throw in because of the significant results a sneaky little trick gives Flipping 50 students.
If you’re looking for inspiration, you’re in the right place. You may know I frequently share inspiring stories from my travels or Flipping 50 community members of women truly Flipping 50. Today is one of those moments.
There are so many things to love about Helen Fritsch.
Could your biggest obstacle be something even you can't see?
Do you have a hard time getting or staying motivated around fitness and health habits?
What if something you never suspected could be your biggest obstacle to weight loss, optimal energy, or ultimately your best life?
Today’s episode visits a recurring theme of emotions that could be tied to your self-sabotage and be a form of self-protection. Let's unpack your biggest obstacle.
Do you struggle to fall asleep or find yourself staring at the ceiling at 2am and 3 and 4…
Do you think you’re sleeping but find your Fit Bit says the times you’re restless are in double digits?
You are not alone. Since you know that sleep is the key to making your exercise and nutrition efforts pay off or in making you feel like exercising and eating right in the first place you know restful sleep is key to hormone balance.
Functional medicine and functional doctor are buzz words right now. Functional exercise for that matter, too, have us all wondering if we need to change but, more importantly have us wondering what that really is!
"Non-athletic." That's how 61-year-old Catherine Thomas described herself to me. As we began her interview so I could share her story of starting to train for a triathlon after 60, she told me she'd been a smoker for 45 years.
Three years ago she quit. She had, that pivotal moment when she wasn't "trying to quit," she did. It was then that she began riding her bike.
Do you struggle with fatigue? Do you want to take a nap in the afternoon but then have a hard time sleeping at night? Have you had to endure stress or put yourself on the back burner for long periods of time?
If you're exercising and eating "right" and its not working. Instead of more energetic and thriving you feel like you're just getting from one day to the next. If that sounds familiar one of the reasons could be that you need an adrenal reset.
The holidays are kicked off with Halloween. Will yours be a healthier Halloween or start a cascade of sugary treats that last through the New Year?
Whether you acknowledge it, deny it, or you're somewhere in the middle things aren't the same as when you were a kid no matter how old you are reading this!
Especially, perhaps at this time in our lives when things are changing rapidly if you’re not matching your hormone needs to changesyou make. You know, thinning hair, more pronounced wrinkles, sudden lines in the neck, crepe skin around legs, cellulite some days not others…
But I actually felt like I aged backwards in those four days.

My guest today is going to challenge your thinking.

Debbie Potts has been in the fitness industry for over twenty-five years and a competitive endurance athlete for twenty years. She shares her story so you can avoid adrenal fatigue.
Constipated? Bloated? Gas? Diarrhea? All of the above? Life would be so much better if you could just poop every day regularly, right? During this episode we are going to flip the lid on the truth about your poop. My guest is none other than the Queen of Thrones.
Fasting and anti-aging are two of the hottest topics among 50 and older women right now. The Flipping 50 podcast and blog have touched fasting lightly. Today we deep dive into my fasting experience, the Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD) I used and a guest who can address fasting from many angles.
If you find it so easy to start and so hard to stick to your exercise plan then this is for you! The saying goes that the hardest thing is to start. That my friend is a lie!
The hardest thing isn’t to finish. The hardest thing is the middle.
This post is about the hunt for the best bone broth. I didn't even know I was looking and there it was, on my doorstep. Meet Kettle & Fire and the family behind it.
Who doesn’t love a great soup? In this episode of Flipping 50 I introduce you to the founder of my favorite bone broth. I fell in love with the taste of Kettle & Fire before I knew the story behind it.
When you’re just starting exercise after 50 or you’re recommitting after a summer there are a lot of sexy programs, beautiful celebrity trainers, and conflicting information. When you’re not sure where to start, what to do, or who to trust it can be overwhelming, or lead to frustration due to injury or lack of results.
I'm sharing 7 Key Areas to Focus on.
This episode is all about how to become a regular exerciser. I’ve privately coached many men and women who wanted just that. They wanted to be the one who gets up every day and walks or who is a regular at the gym. They wanted to make time even when work-related social hours popped up and tempted them with cocktails. Our social media followers ask this quite often. So.. here it is. I thought hard about how I would lay out the steps to become a regular exerciser. This is my top five.

The thought of participating in the Senior Games as an athlete may have not even occurred to you, yet. That doesn't mean it's too late.
I’m forever telling clients to get off that scale. They nod and agree. Then the first thing that comes out of their mouths when we talk about status is about either losing a few pound – or gaining a few pounds – or the dreaded plateau.

How would you like to talk to the skin whisperer? Identify how to care for your skin, reverse sun damage and feel more confident in your own skin. Skincare for the now in your life.
Dr. Keirra Barr is a cutting edge Dermatologist, who is known as an innovative thinker.
In this 10thand final episode of our summer energy series with Christy Mattoon of Mindrewire we talked about the difference between a band-aid and a permanent solution. If you can solve what’s causing your stress symptoms now you can avoid disease later. Daily high levels of stress over time lead to disease. In fact over 80 diseases are tied directly to stress. Since it’s a personal perception each of us needs to find a personal way to recognize and deal with our stress symptoms.
You’ve heard this your whole life: practice makes perfect. You may have also heard the carefully corrected version: perfect practice makes perfect. You’re always practicing something and it’s either something you consciously choose taking you in a direction you consciously want to go or it’s a habit you’re repeating that keeps you from what you really want.
Last episode covered how to dump stress that’s likely to keep you wired and in reaction mode. Today it’s about how to Pray, Say, and Stay Calmso you can respond. There will be storms. Things will happen beyond your control and if you can stay calm and choose how you respond you’ll be more likely to maintain high energy in spite of your environment or situation.
In our last episode in this series, episode 6, Christy Mattoon talked about hydration and the importance of water for energy. Today is about how to dump stress. We’re looking to arrest the energy-robbing thieves you may not know exist. This is not the obvious stressors like a fight you had with someone or the nagging to-do list kind of stress.
It’s easy, economical and imperative that you boost energy with hydration. Your body and every cell in it requires water to function optimally. This is so simple yet, so many struggle with getting enough water in daily.
