by Fitcoachion | Last Updated: June 11, 2020


Hi friends. <3 I recorded this episode a few weeks ago with my friend Megan Olson and I’m excited to share it with you today.

Here’s a little bit about what we discuss:

– Her personal health transformation story

– The difference between deprivation and eating for health

– Why all foods should be a part of your healthy lifestyle

– Tips for first getting started

and so much more!

Weight loss can be a taboo topic, but in certain cases, it can be a stepping stone on the way to becoming healthier overall. Of course, I think there are some important factors you need to take into consideration, like how you FEEL, muscle density (or body composition), hormonal balance,  etc. I love how Megan takes all of these considerations while working with clients and focuses on the entire picture.
