Are you eating well, but the scale still won't budge? I used to think that you're overweight because you overeat. I now know better as I work with many women who struggle with weight loss resistance and eating less is NOT the answer.

Join me as I break down three common reasons you might be overeating without knowing it... and what to do about it. Press play and let's go! -Tanja...

This is probably one of my most open and vulnerable episodes. I had to record this week’s podcast twice because the first time I spoke way too fast. I was nervous. I have never shared what I share on today’s podcast. You are NOT the sum of your parts. And so often we do this… Measuring yourself by your ‘imperfections’… Your thighs. Your stomach. Your feet.  Your arms.  Your chin.  Your teeth. Your wrinkles.  That scar. Your weight. And you look to others and compare yourself on that one criterion. She has smooth skin. She has perfect teeth.

You commit to losing weight, resist temptations, but then that binge happens, and you're left wondering, "What happened to my willpower?" Can you relate? Willower is a battery that diminishes the more you use it. It is NOT a realistic key to weight loss.  Relying on willpower is a red flag.  Willpower is another dieting trap. It’s a quick fix. It’s the easy way out, avoiding the deeper habits and the root cause that led to weight gain in the first place.  If you want to break free of the struggle with food and your weight, I created this podcast for you.  Join me on...

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

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.
