How to get in the best shape of your life. Tips on workouts and diet from Heidi Powell.

Heidi Powell is what we call the ultimate female force. She’s a trainer, a transformation specialist, an author, a savvy businesswoman, a health nut, and a mother of beautiful children. She’s the co-host of ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss and has since helped a lot of people choose a healthier and fitter life.
In today’s episode, Heidi talks about her many ups and downs, what her life was like before she found out what being fit means, and her tips on how to successfully transform yourself both inside and out.
Losing weight or reaching any goal is like a game of poker. You have to have your cards and you play one card at a time.” Heidi Powell
In this episode, you’ll learn:
  • An eating disorder is not always anorexia or bulimia; it’s not being able to find balance with nutrition.
  • Some diets can get the best of you and make you feel stressed, even the most flexible ones like Macro tracking.
  • Finding balance is everything so take a break on your diet every now and then.
  • Doing everything strategically or slowly will lead to a long-term success specially when it comes to weight loss.
  • Parents should be less concerned about kids liking them but more about raising productive human beings.
  • Coaches play a major role in making sure the client sticks with the program. Without a coach, Heidi would be a totally different person.
  • Investing in yourself will always reap more than what you pay for.
Key Takeaways:
  • It’s not about the weight or how you look but how you love yourself.
  • Trusting the process and the coach is important when it comes to a successful transformation.
  • When you invest money in yourself, not only are saving money on healthcare cost but you’re also clearing you mind as you bring more things other than money into your life.

About Heidi Powell

From her online bio:
Hiiii, I’m Heidi! You might know me best as a fitness and transformation expert where I’ve worked alongside my best friend and husband, Chris Powell, on ABC’s hit show, Extreme Weight Loss. I am also a mother to four amazing kids and two fur babies, a devoted wife, author, and entrepreneur building and balancing my brand and our new digital platform, TRANSFORM.
While I love physical fitness + nutrition, there is nothing I love more (besides my family) than empowering others to live their best life possible. I’m on a mission to empower women through my own personal stories and triumphs over the hardships I’ve had with disordered eating and other body issues.
I am here for you! I want to share not only my expertise, but my own personal journey in navigating health and wellness trends, fitness regimens, healthy recipes, family-friendly workouts, marriage, and parenting advice, inspiring you to live your most authentic life, being unapologetically YOU. Follow along with my #PerfectlyImperfect movement where we’ll all inspire each other to live with more grace, gratitude, and appreciation for all that you are on the inside and out.”
