Is healing your metabolism the key to weight loss?

Most women don’t actually know why sugar is “bad.” Most of us take the fitness industry’s word for it amongst other things.

In this podcast episode, I caught up with the gorgeous and knowledgeable Jessica, a Hormone and PCOS Nutritionist who is well-known on Instagram as @jessicaashwellness. We discussed the misconceptions around sugar and why weight gain can be a necessary part of healing your metabolism and fixing your hormones.

I’ve followed Jessica for a while and she has a similar background to many women in our program (and me). She’s done all the fad diets from Intermittent Fasting, Low Carb, to Paleo and Keto. 

While she noticed some improvements in her clients and herself when on these low carb diets, she also noticed in some ways she and her clients weren’t feeling any better, like losing hair, adrenal issues, and not sleeping. Then she came across Danny Roddy and found Ray Peat’s work.

From there, Jessica began implementing everything from eating dairy, more sugar, and generally eating more. She then started teaching her clients about what she’d learned.

I loved chatting with her and digging into how a lot of women wreck their metabolism (including both of us) and how getting healthy and fixing underlying imbalances must be done first before weight loss will happen. 

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did ❤️
