395: 3 Things I Heard This Week to Help You Create Change show art 395: 3 Things I Heard This Week to Help You Create Change

Fit + Vibrant You

In the last few months, I have been eating more plant based meals, and less meat, dairy and eggs.  When I learned about a local plant based cooking class (that included a lot of tasty samples), I said YES PLEASE! At the beginning of the class, one gentleman gave a presentation on the benefits of plant based meals. What piqued my interest more than the benefits of eating more fibre and veggies, was what he said about creating CHANGE. Whether you are working on eating less sugar, more plants, less alcohol, exercising more or ANYTHING at all, this podcast is for you. In fact, even if...

Fit + Vibrant You

Eat less. Move more. Count your calories. Or points. Or macros. Eat at much protein and fat as you want but avoid carbs and sugar. Eat anything you want as long as it fits your macros. Just follow this simple meal plan. Only eat within a 8 hour window. Stop eating after 7. How many of these have you tried to lose weight? How is it working for you? You might have heard someone argue that you shouldn't cut carloies, you should just avoid carbs instead. Or that instead of restricting calories, just focus on the TIME you eat. That weight loss has nothing to do with calories, just...

Most women I work with are either in perimenopause, or are postmenopausal (makes sense as I work with women in midlife and beyond, and menopause is technically just one day). They tell me “what worked before is no longer working… it's my hormones.” It’s TRUE that hormones change and that hormones can absolutely affect your weight loss.  But so often we focus so much on the fact that our hormones are changing that it distracts us from the thing that is actually getting in our way, which is our basic habits. Things like… ✨constantly being on your phone ✨not prioritizing...

Dr. David McKenzie recently spoke at the Chilliwack Women’s Health Summit, and event I organized to support our local Starfish Backpack Program.  He spoke for 20 minutes, and left everyone wanting more.

So, I've invited Dr. McKenzie onto the podcast.

My goal for the Fit and Vibrant You podcast is to give your the resources, tool, motivation and inspiration to live a fit, vibrant life.  And in order to thrive and be our best selves, we need sex, connection, love and physical pleasure.   When we are nourished through meaningful relationships, pleasure, passion and purpose, we can have a more relaxed relationship with food and body. 

In this podcast, we talk all about sex:

  • What problems can arise in your sex life
  • Body image, body shame and sexual health
  • What's a 'normal' number of times to have sex a life
  • Very specific things you can do today to improve your experience in the bedroom (or kitchen, living room.... ;)

About my guest, Dr. David McKenzie
David attended university in Winnipeg and Toronto where he earned his Master’s degree in divinity and pastoral psychology at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto. He was ordained an Anglican Priest in 1974 and served in that capacity for twenty-three years as a church pastor and seven additional years as a federal penitentiary chaplain.

 
In 2002 David retired from church leadership and pursued his doctoral degree at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco where he was awarded his Ph.D. in 2005 in the discipline of human sexuality. That same year he founded Dr. McKenzie & Associates, which has become a thriving practice with, at its zenith, four Associates in two offices serving the needs of individuals and couples in Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
