On today’s podcast, we have an amazing guest with us, one whom I can hardly believe hasn’t been on before! She is Sarah Fragoso: author, coach and the brilliant mind behind the Everyday Paleo book series. Sarah has been an influential person in the paleo and health and wellness scene for a long time and she’s just co-authored a new book, Hangry, that outlines five practices to balance your hormones and improve the overall quality of your life, including aspects such as self-care, mindfulness, and self-talk.
On this episode she shares her experiences growing up with a mom who struggled with health issues, the problems she herself experienced later in life and what she did when her strict exercise and diet routine stopped working and nearly pushed her to a breaking point. She discusses the process of learning that health is fluid and that, as our bodies and circumstances change, our dietary and exercise needs also change and why it is so vital to maintaining a position of openness and acceptance on this journey. Be sure to join in for this special episode!

Key Points From This Episode:
“I felt so much better like within weeks, I was a new person and it was one of those things like so many people’s stories that you hear on the Internet now where when you start to actually feel better, you want to share your journey.” — @TheSarahFragoso [0:09:25.1]
“I really think it’s why so many diets fail is because they’re done in this punishing, self-deprecating sort of way versus what can I do that’s so super nourishing for me?” — @TheSarahFragoso [0:15:33.1]
“So the whole concept of the book when it comes to the nutrition suggestions is to definitely start with more of a low inflammatory diet, right? Because inflammation is the great hormone mess maker.” — @TheSarahFragoso [0:40:02.1]
