If I told you a doctor was talking about a better menopause today, what is the first thought that comes to mind? What do you suspect we’re going to talk about? I’d be willing to bet it’s not this conversation. If you’ve been spending 15 minutes in the office when you visit your doctor, feel like you’ve got to have questions written down not to miss the chance… then this will feel completely foreign… but welcome.

Do you hope for a better post menopause than you see most women have? Do you want a better post menopause than your mother or grandmother? Maybe they’ve never even talked about it! So how do you create your own best mental, physical, and emotional journey into menopause and beyond?

This episode is full of resources and things to consider. I’ll look at both the pros and cons of starting now or getting back into it if it’s something you did “back in the day.”

Do exercise and fasting even belong in the same sentence? I’ve got the inside scoop for you in this episode. Is exercise fasted a faster way to weight loss or sabotaging you? Is there a better way to fast?
January 23, 2020
Walking mistakes may be keeping you from your best results. Doctors often recommend walking as a best exercise. However, the blanket “walk” advice leaves a lot of information out. You’ve got less room for error after 50, especially if you’re in menopause.
January 21, 2020
Lady, you’re an influence for everyone around you. Though there is an abundance of information out there about women’s hormone health and you know we cover it here, there’s less about men’s hormone health. So we’re diving into it in this episode.
January 14, 2020
Can you imagine nearly losing it all? What do you think of when I ask that? Did you think of money or you think of health? Today's guest nearly lost her life before she found the real value in health.

Have you ever set a New Year’s Resolution? Or set a weight or a performance goal? If you’ve ever been inspired to or forced to (I taught a health studies course for years, so that is for my students) … and if you’ve ever wondered, why you didn’t follow through or why you quit… then this episode is for you.

Blood flow restriction training is not new to Flipping 50. This may be the third podcast in just a few short months. Yet, today's guest barely needs an intro, he's referred to as a household word by many of my clients and friends. And for good reason.
December 28, 2019
Are you bloated? Feeling fluffy? We’re talking about why today. The ever changing hormone game makes gut health quite a ride. My guest has so many good tips and tidbits that you’ll probably come back to this one!

How would you love to enjoy all of your favorite foods full of flavor and still enjoy good- if not excellent health?

This post is all about interval training workouts you can do during the holidays (and busy times any year) and why they work. I’m sharing my Interval Training guide that includes 7 workouts, plus two little travel workouts you can do without equipment in a hotel room or in the guest room before your hosts even wake up.
December 3, 2019
Today's episode is pretty much a coaching call with me. Unless you actually have coached or are a coach it's hard to know what to expect and how it works. There's a little dance between asking, listening, suggesting, and providing homework that will give us data.

Heart of electrolytes? Of course, you have! Don't confuse those common exercise electrolyte sources (full of chemicals, sugar, or both) with what we're talking about today.

I caught up with Dexter Yeats at Ironman Cozumel 2019. You may remember our interview two years ago when I had the good fortune to meet her at Cozumel Ironman 2016. Days before this year’s race we ran into each other at the hotel and began talking about mindset.

If menopause metabolism has put pounds on you and or belly fat is an issue no matter what else is going on with weight, this is your read. I’d be willing to bet that most of what you believe – because it’s what you’ve been taught – is part of the problem. In this post I uncover what worked for me...

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.
October 15, 2019
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?
October 1, 2019
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!  Links to the BFR bands: (Flipping 50 Member Box subscribers: Use your special Market Place to get yours at the better rate on additional sets) Links to resources mentioned: Osteosarcopenia podcast  Flipping 50 Member Box   STRONGER I  Should You Be Doing Blood Flow Restriction Exercise   I’d love to hear from you on this one. Are you intrigued? Inspired to use BFR bands? Want some guidance? (Check out STRONGERwhile it’s open as we’re incorporating it into STRONGER I and STRONGER IV programming!)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

don’t have time to work out. Really? 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…

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.

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.

The one lingering reason to listen to this episode might just be deeper than time.

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.
December 24, 2018
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.
