  • How to heal Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease Ulcerative Colitis, and IBS with DIETARY changes!

    How to heal Celiac, Crohn’s Disease, IBS and Ulcerative Colitis With Diet & Lifestyle Changes. Interview with Gigi Ashworth.

    Gigi Ashworth holds a master’s degree in Nutrition Communication and Science and a degree in Broadcast Journalism. She is also the owner of Gigi Eats Celebrities, a blog she founded to help people cope with their digestive issues and food sensitivities – two conditions she’s suffered for most of her life. Crohn’s, Celiac, Ulcerative Colitis, and a lack of a large intestine, Gigi didn’t let her conditions get her down. Instead, she used them to her advantage to help others who may be in a similar situation.
    In this episode, Gigi shares her experience growing up with multiple gut-related issues and how she found a way to cope with them through dietary modifications and exercise. She discusses what it was like to eat food in foreign countries compared to what is available to Americans. She also explains how you can make positive changes to your diet without entirely sacrificing your favorite foods.
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    • When she became interested in health and fitness.
    • The gut issues she suffered when she was still in her early teens.
    • How she overcame these issues.
    • Her opinions on doctors and traditional medicine.
    • Is American food generally tainted?
    • How you can improve your diet without removing your favorites.
    • Gut issues that are inherited and caused by what we eat.
    Key Takeaways:
    • If you have an unhealthy gut, you’re going to feel sick all the time.
    • Don’t just go to one doctor and believe what they say. Get a second opinion or at least do your own research.
    • More people have gut issues or celiac disease and they don’t even know about it because they don’t like to talk about it.

    About Gigi Ashworth

    From her online bio:
    GiGi, a former competitive snowboarder and horseback rider has since become a popular allergen-friendly cook and certified nutritionist with a master’s degree in Nutrition Communications. However, prior to obtaining her master’s degree, she got her broadcast journalism degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder and even worked as the 3 am weather girl at Denver’s ABC affiliate. After realizing those hours were the pits, she moved to Los Angeles, where she currently lives and started a humorous weekly blog/vlog called GiGi Eats Celebrities. This blog/vlog is a place where people with diet concerns, as GiGi’s enthusiasm stems from her own severe diet-related problems, can get advice (such as traveling with food intolerances – GiGi also offers nutrition services for those who need a helping hand when it comes to making lifestyle changes) along with allergen-friendly recipes that everyone can enjoy. A self-proclaimed extreme eater (she can eat 6 pounds of salmon in one sitting, no joke) and a rather blunt and vulgar diehard food, GiGi is proof that you can educate and inform as well as entertain at the same time!
    When GiGi was 15 years old, she was diagnosed with Crohn’s and Celiac Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and IBS. When she was 21 years old, she had her large intestine removed because of said conditions. While it not necessary to describe the “dirty details” of what GiGi deals with on a daily basis, let’s just say, she has an insanely high pain tolerance. Despite said conditions and issues that make her feel like she’s having pregnancy contractions on the regular, no one would know because the smile on her face is so ridiculously big. The reason for this is because, well, she knows that… It could always be worse and knows despite her issues, her life f*cking rocks.
    Her life f*cking rocks for so many reasons but to really pin point specific things, she has a kick ass support system, the hottest husband on the face of the planet (6’6”, actor/model, pilot and an extremely high IQ), has the ability to take part in her hobbies on a professional level, which include cooking, exploring and traveling (she has been blessed with a lot of sponsored travel opportunities thanks to her blog and YouTube channel), eating copious amounts of salmon, and working out. GiGi’s vivacity and tenacity for life also help fuel her happiness and keep her focused on “the prize”… Which to her, is having her own TV show.”

    About Leanne Vogel

    From her online bio:
    I’m an ultra passionate Nutrition Educator, host of The Keto Diet Podcast (ranked #3 in fitness & nutrition and #10 in all health podcasts on iTunes in the US and Canada), creator of one of the largest keto resources on YouTube, and the founder of Happy Keto Body. My first paperback, The Keto Diet, was an international bestseller and the first ketogenic book to debut at Costco… ever. I am also releasing new paperbacks in 2019 including, The Keto Diet Cookbook (April, 2019), and Keto for Women (June, 2019)
    My goal is to help you do away with feeling overpowered and controlled by food by giving you the tools you need to inject your life with happiness, healthfulness, and a whole lot of dietary fat.
    I’ve spent over a decade revolutionizing my perception of food and wellness by creating a life of kindness and acceptance toward myself. I bounced from diet to diet trying to find an approach that worked best for me. And, it all came together when I found the ketogenic diet in 2014. When I realized the power of a customized keto approach to nutrition was possible, the game changed.
    I found keto during my personal struggles with health and weight loss. It transformed my life ending my 8-year struggle with amenorrhea (missing period), hypothyroidism, adrenal dysfunction and ultra-low hormones. I immediately set out on a path to help others find the same success. My first online nutrition program The Keto Beginning launched in October 2014, Fat Fueled in November 2015 and Happy Keto Body in April 2018, in addition to my 3 paperback books.”

  • WHY STRENGTH TRAINING IS SO IMPORTANT FOR WOMEN OVER 40. INTERVIEW WITH CATHE FRIEDRICH!

    How Weight Training Helps Women Over 40 Lose Weight and Look Beyond TONED!!

    Cathe Friedrich
    Cathe Friedrich is a recognized name in the world of workout videos. She has been at the top of this business for over 30 years and has at least 200 DVDs under her belt. She’s known to create the type of workouts even veterans in the field would find advanced but the results are always uncanny. She has legions of followers all over social media especially on YouTube where she makes use of live workout streams so even her audience across the globe can workout with her and the team.
    Today, Cathe shares with us her humble beginnings, how she ended up building a career on dance workouts, valuable advice to women when it comes to weight lifting, and some really good tips for moms who want to become fit again or for the very first time. I personally discovered Cathe’s workouts on Collage Video probably 20 years ago!! After I started working out- I did cardio only (Taebo) then moved up to The Firm workouts and then discovered Cathe and became obsessed! She is the BOMB!!! 
    “The body, once it starts really showing signs of improvement, it needs recovery just as much it needs a push to workout.” Cathe Friedrich
     In this episode, you’ll learn:
    Cathe wouldn’t be here if she didn’t pursue passion over her college degree.
    Cathe’s workouts conform and adapt to the times to make sure everyone gets access to her videos.
    Women shouldn’t be afraid to lift weights. They’re not as genetically capable of bulking as men and even men have a difficult time putting on muscle.
    True fitness is achieved by doing more than cardio. You have to challenge your muscles with weight.
    Weight training allows you to build lean muscle tissue that protects you from the likes of osteoporosis and other bone diseases while also improving overall quality of life.
    When it comes to training, more is definitely not better. Rest makes up a huge part of the training process. Too much will make your body go against you. You’ll end up breaking your body and you’ll hate exercise.
    It’s when you recover that your body gets trimmer, leaner, and stronger.
    Even busy moms can find a time for fitness. Cathe says even 5 minutes is more than enough if you know what to do. 
    Key Takeaways:
    Small accomplishments are better than no accomplishments at all. That 5-minute workout you’ll do is still 5 minutes more than just sitting around. Let them add up and you’ll be more accountable towards small goals than looking at the big picture that looks intimidating.
    Cardio alone will just make you become a smaller version of yourself. Aesthetic changes require weight training.
    Make sure you work hard and recover harder.

    About Cathe Friedrich

    From her online bio:
    Before there was Zumba, Tae Bo, Spinning or even Step Aerobics, fitness video pioneer Cathe Friedrich recognized the need to provide a simple, flexible, affordable and motivating way for Americans to exercise and stay fit. Nearly thirty years and over 300 DVDs later, thousands of people have credited Cathe Friedrich for helping them to transform their bodies and their lives with her videos and TV appearances.
    Like going through life with a friend, Cathe’s followers have grown in their workouts as she has learned and expanded her video offerings, staying focused on Cathe’s three guiding principles: Professionalism, Passion, and Quality.
    Cathe is often credited with being the first to bring advanced fitness videos to the home exerciser and helped shatter the theory that only celebrities could star in fitness videos. As a certified Group Fitness Instructor, Cathe has taught thousands of classes at her New Jersey health club and has helped to train many of today’s top instructors.
    As a leading innovator in the home exercise video industry, in 1988 she founded Step N Motion Videos and in 1989, created one of the first ‘step’ aerobic videos. Cathe continues to produce fun, intense, and challenging workouts for all body types and fitness levels. Her award-winning workouts have been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Dallas News, Fox Business News, QVC and the Philadelphia Inquirer. Health and fitness writers have published articles about her in Shape, Oxygen, Self, Health, Fit, Consumer Digest and Fitness magazines.
    Cathe continues to stay cutting edge through her Cathe Live streaming channel, OnDemand offerings, and mobile fitness apps. Cathe prides herself on staying true to three guiding principles: professionalism, passion, and quality. Her dedication to her craft and to the fitness industry led to her induction into the Fitness Hall of Fame in 2011.
    While appearing on Fox Business News, Cathe told her story of how she got started. When she was 16, she took an aerobics class. Three weeks later, was asked to teach it and she was “hooked.” A few years later, Cathe was teaching a creative movement class at a fitness studio on the top floor of Carnegie Hall, where she used fourteen-inch benches as part of her workout. At the same time, Step Reebok was launching what is now known as “Step Aerobics” to the world. Cathe incorporated step into her philosophy, creating her first video, “Step N Motion One,” which was also one of the first and most influential step aerobic videos of its time. Today, her fitness empire includes all types of workouts and is one of the largest privately owned fitness video libraries in the world.
    Always on the cutting edge, Cathe recognized the power of the internet and was the first to sell fitness videos online nearly 20 years ago. Today, Cathe.com is one of the largest and most visited fitness websites and Cathe’s pioneering work in this area has inspired other instructors to market and promote their own fitness videos in a similar fashion. Today, she continues to be a trendsetter with her DVDs, Ripped with HiiT, XTrain, STS Fitness Program, digital downloads, iPhone apps, and fitness tracking software.
    Collage Video, a source for exercise videos since 1987, says this about Cathe on their web site: “Since the early 1990s, Cathe Friedrich’s videos have set the standard for ‘challenging workouts’. Cathe Friedrich’s workout video technique is excellent; her cuing style is very direct. These exercise videos will challenge even the elite athlete!” The Dallas Morning News wrote: “To say that Cathe Friedrich workout videos are tough is like saying Everest slopes upward.” Fit TV declared: ” Cathe is one the most popular trainers on our network. She is a power-intense cardio-buster, a punch and crunch trainer.”
    To bring her workouts and her message of healthy living directly to her fans, known as “Cathletes”, Cathe offers national road trips which give her a unique opportunity to meet many of her loyal followers in person (something Cathe really loves to do.) She also keeps in touch with her fans by embracing new technology, frequently updating her web page, blogging, Tweeting, posting on Facebook and continually answering questions in her forums.
    Since 1986, Cathe has been certified through the American Council on Exercise (ACE). Additional specialty fitness certifications include Indoor Cycling, Body Pump, Body Flow, Kickboxing, Boxing, Silver Sneakers, Prenatal Fitness, Resist-A-Ball, Yoga Fit, Barre, Zumba and more.
    Cathe is the mother of two boys, Eric and Kyle.
