This obese make-up artist lost 140lbs - Interview With Paddy McGurgan - EP100

February 25, 2022

In 2020, when Covid-19 ravaged the globe and sent us into a tailspin, many people lost all motivation for keeping up with their health and fitness goals. 

 

But not this very busy, award-winning professional Makeup Artist from Northern Ireland, Paddy McGurgan. 

 

When Covid struck, Paddy was faced with a sudden decision: either finally lose the weight he had been trying desperately to lose with little success, or he would likely die.

 

It was now or never. 

 

At over 400 lbs, with Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, on medications, and suddenly thrust into a dangerous pandemic that his body likely wouldn’t be able to handle, Paddy was out of excuses.

 

With the lockdowns taking his job and giving him much more free time (to his relief), Paddy finally had the time to focus on his health. And although the exhaustion tempted him at every turn, he quickly found a strategy that would help him lose over 140lbs and keep it off.

 

And it’s the complete opposite of what many people do in their fitness journeys.

 

Listen in as he candidly shares the turning point to his dramatic weight loss, the thing he knew that had to change if he was going to be successful, and how he does life 140lbs lighter!

 

We also discuss loose skin, cosmetic work, his gym routine, and his top tips for people just starting their weight loss journey who feel overwhelmed by the fear of failure.

 

You’re going to gush over this episode (and him)!

Sex Toys & Lube Talk.  How To Have Better Sex - Interview With Sam Evans - Episode 99

Sex Toys & Lube Talk. How To Have Better Sex - Interview With Sam Evans - Episode 99

February 18, 2022

Sex is meant to be noisy, messy, and most of all, FUN!

 

People use sex toys and lubes to help enhance their pleasure yet have no idea that what they’re using could completely destroy their sexual health and make sex anything BUT fun. 

 

From toys made of jelly to lubes with propylene glycol, most people don’t have a clue that what they’re putting in and around their most sensitive body parts (and even taking orally) could be contributing to things like:

 

  • Thrush
  • Itching 
  • Bacterial infections
  • Painful sex
  • Irritation
  • Dryness 

 

Even reaching orgasm can become downright impossible!

 

Sam Evans, co-founder of Jo Divine, a skin-safe and irritant-free sex toy company, is on the podcast today, giving us the juicy lowdown on sex toys, lubes, and how to have more pleasurable sex (especially after menopause).

 

A sexual health & pleasure expert, Sam has been featured all over radio, TV, and the press. With a professional background in nursing, Sam also advises women going through natural menopause, or due to medical or surgical treatment and post-cancer treatment, about ways to enjoy better sexual intimacy and pleasure.

 

She shares how she and her husband started Jo Divine and why it’s crucial for us to pay close attention to what our sex toys and lubes are made of!

 

She also talks about common ingredients to avoid (including one found in antifreeze that is in MANY popular lubricants), why you should be moisturizing your vagina, and so much more!

 

She’s even graciously extended a 10% discount for my followers, good for anything in her sex toy shop!

My Sister’s Worst Nightmare Made Her a Millionaire in Under 12 Months—Interview with Kerry Nevins - EP98

My Sister’s Worst Nightmare Made Her a Millionaire in Under 12 Months—Interview with Kerry Nevins - EP98

February 11, 2022

My sister Kerry Nevins turned over $2 million in 9 months.

 

Sounds like a dream come true, right?

 

Maybe. But the long journey there was an actual nightmare. And for many, it would have caused them to give up.

 

Kerry is the founder & CEO of Babocush, the first-ever comfort cushion with a built-in heartbeat, vibration, and various angles for babies to safely and securely snuggle on their tummies in the same way they would on their mums.

 

But 19 years ago, when her colicky son Harry was born, she had no idea the hellish nightmare that lay ahead.

 

She was just a frazzled mum who initially wanted to help free her baby from constant pain and discomfort, and what she needed didn’t exist. So when she set out to create it, and her prototype actually worked, family and friends were begging to borrow it with equally shocking success.

 

What then seemed like an instant invention success became utter torment.

 

Listen in to hear how she overcame:

  • the constant battles of going from concept to launch 
  • the thing that nearly ruined her business while simultaneously making her a millionaire
  • the horrendous accusations she endured that almost made her quit (& why she ultimately didn’t)
  • ..and so much more!

 

Kerry has been through agony getting to where she is now. But you don’t have to. She’s now opening her VERY busy schedule to help you get your product launched without all the hell, time, and money she has spent launching hers.

 

Book her for a one-hour consultation at 50% off through Feb 2022! Use code TMDM50.

 

Can’t wait for you to hear her insane story!

Mikhaila Peterson Claims a Carnivore Diet Healed Her Autoimmune Disease.  Do We Believe Her?-EP97

Mikhaila Peterson Claims a Carnivore Diet Healed Her Autoimmune Disease. Do We Believe Her?-EP97

January 28, 2022

As a kid, Mikhaila Peterson only knew a life of depression and physical pain. Growing up, she suffered immensely from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis that caused inflammation, chronic fatigue, rashes, and more. Her arthritis was so bad that she ended up having her hip and ankle replaced.

 

If that wasn’t bad enough, she suffered from depression on top of it. She was in a constant battle between medications for her pain and fatigue, and medications to help her think and focus—none of which actually helped her. 

 

Doctors ignored her. 

 

Nobody could help her. 

 

So she decided to take things into her own hands. Feeling hopeless and on her deathbed, she went to the one thing she knew she could do immediately and have full control over—her diet. 

 

Her very drastic dietary measures shockingly worked, and within a couple months, all of her ailments completely disappeared, and she was off all of her medications. 

 

Listen in as she explains exactly how she’s able to follow such an extreme diet long-term and how she ultimately overcame a life of seemingly endless misery. 

 

She even shares her best tips for those struggling to make lasting lifestyle changes. 

 

I would love to hear your thoughts on this!

The Menopause Diet: Why Carbs Are Causing Your Meno Belly (& What To Eat Instead) - EP96

The Menopause Diet: Why Carbs Are Causing Your Meno Belly (& What To Eat Instead) - EP96

January 21, 2022

Eating for menopause is exactly the same as eating for bodybuilding.

 

(Say what?)

 

One of the most common complaints I hear from women in menopause is that they didn’t change a thing, yet they suddenly started gaining fat at an uncontrollable pace!

 

And that’s exactly the problem. 

 

What happens in our body on a cellular level once we move towards menopause and beyond is far different from what happens in our younger years. So what used to work to keep us relatively lean back then, will no longer work. 

 

(But don’t despair. The changes you need to make are not as drastic as you may think.)

 

Bodybuilders are notorious for hacking their bodies to get to absurdly low levels of body fat. Although most menopausal women don’t care about getting quite that lean, the principles are actually the same!

 

(And don’t worry, the answer is not a zero-carb diet.)

 

In this episode, I’m giving you the low-down on exactly what you should be eating (and not eating) to keep your menopause fat gain at bay, and WHY.

 

I also share what I eat to keep myself lean year-round and the backstory behind how I became so obsessed with the human body (including why menopause is a recent hot topic in the Sculpted Vegan community).

 

You will really love this one!

The Exact Reason You’re Gaining Weight in Menopause (& How To Prevent It!) - EP95

The Exact Reason You’re Gaining Weight in Menopause (& How To Prevent It!) - EP95

January 14, 2022

If there’s one thing I think all women can agree with, it’s that menopause can really suck the life out of us:

-belly fat gain (UGH!)

-night sweats/hot flashes

-cellulite

-mood swings

 

The list goes on!

 

And for women who haven’t yet entered menopause, it can be especially terrifying wondering how their own bodies are going to respond. After all, it’s not often we hear about how beautiful this phase of our lives can really be.

 

But I’m making it my mission to change all of that.

 

I’m a firm believer that the more knowledge we have about menopause and how our bodies change before, during, and after it, the better and more beautiful our experience will be. Armed with the proper tools, I really believe all women are in far better control of how their bodies will respond in this part of their lives. Yes, the hormonal cascade is inevitable, but the symptoms that so many women endure don’t have to be!

In this episode, I’m tackling one of women's biggest fears over menopause: belly fat gain! I divulge the exact reasons most women gain weight even before they technically hit menopause, which foods to avoid to ensure your sexiest midsection, and the precise macronutrient ratio to aim for so you’re able to still burn fat despite the hormonal changes.

 

I also give you 3 steps you can implement right away, whether you’re peri- or post-menopausal, to ensure you’re on the right track to your hottest, healthiest, and strongest menopausal body!

 

This episode is packed to the brim, so get ready!

If there was a way to recover faster from exercise, dramatically lower your stress response, beat depression and mental illness, get deeper sleep, and boost your immune system’s response to pathogens, would you do it?

 

What if it was something that caused you short-term discomfort? Would you still do it?

 

The truth is, most people run from discomfort. Our brains are wired to seek familiarity, comfort, and predictability. 

 

Why then, would anyone purposely put themselves in uncomfortable, scary, or even painful situations? 

 

Well, instead of me telling you the answer to that, I will let my podcast guest, Wim Hof tell you!

 

I am beyond ecstatic to have had this interview with him! The man is absolutely brilliant—so full of energy, wisdom, and charisma. 

 

For those who may not know, Wim is a Dutch extreme athlete who got his nickname 'The Iceman' by breaking a number of records related to cold exposure, like climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle barefoot, and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes.

 

(Dear God!)

 

Achievements like these require a massive amount of discipline, determination, and skill. Wim has developed his own method for enabling him to achieve these extraordinary feats and has dedicated his life to teaching others how to master it for their own health benefits.

 

In this episode, Wim explains exactly how to accomplish all this and more. He even guides you through his ice bath challenge by teaching you how to focus on your breathing to get through it in the fastest 40 seconds of your life.

 

I even took on the challenge myself  (watch for that video on my IG!), and I strongly encourage you to do it too! Why? Because the benefits of cold exposure on the symptoms of mental illness are profound, and what a way to bring awareness to such a great cause.

 

And to sweeten the deal, if you post your ice bath challenge video and tag Wim and me so we can see it (with the hashtag #freezehof), you will get a Sculpted Vegan program of your choice for FREE! 

 

You’re really going to be blown away by this episode! Can’t wait to hear what you think and see all your Freezehof challenge videos!

How To Have Better Sex in Menopause — with Head Trainer Laura

How To Have Better Sex in Menopause — with Head Trainer Laura

November 5, 2021

Did you know that up to 80% of menopausal women experience hot flashes and vaginal dryness? These are the most common symptoms in all stages of menopause, yet so embarrassing that most women won’t even talk about them.

 

With the launch of my new menopause program and community coming up soon, I decided to hand my podcast over AGAIN (since you all loved it so much last week). Head Trainer Laura Hutchinson took the reins on this week’s podcast, and she does not disappoint!

 

Laura has been in the menopause research realm for many years. We’ve both had our heads in the sand TOGETHER for the last year because of our soon-to-be-launched programs, and let me tell you, Laura knows her sh*t.

 

And quite frankly?

 

We’re over the silence that has been deafening menopausal women. It’s time to get real about one of the most natural occurrences all women will ever experience.

 

So when I asked Laura if she wanted to take over my podcast and talk all things menopause, she of course squealed in delight! So listen closely as she gets down and dirty with:

 

  • what menopause is
  • different cultural beliefs around menopause
  • most common symptoms
  • average age that menopause strikes
  • ..and loads more!

 

She even discusses vaginal dryness + some ways to help it, hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and shares an old menopause myth that I bet will shock you!

Enjoy this fabulous episode!

Conquering Self-Sabotage & Staying Motivated When Results Are Slow — Q&A with Coach Vanessa - EP92

Conquering Self-Sabotage & Staying Motivated When Results Are Slow — Q&A with Coach Vanessa - EP92

October 29, 2021

I have a very special podcast for you this week! I have never done this before, but I thought it would be so much fun to let one of my coaches take the reins on an entire podcast episode! 

 

And you’re going to love it!

 

Today’s episode is with Coach Vanessa Burgess! Vanessa has been with the Sculpted Vegan team for several years, and is one of my most experienced coaches! She has done nearly every program I’ve ever created, and has learned so much in the years she’s been with the team. When she first started her SV journey in January 2019, she was breastfeeding 3 babies, working 4 jobs from home, and doing the original 4-Week Shred all at the same time. She has consistently stayed the course, listened to feedback, implemented things she was terrified of (like eating thousands of calories a day to build muscle), and has reaped the rewards ten-fold.

 

So I sent her into the streets (a.k.a Butt Camp FB group) to ask the competitors what they’re dying to know about all things mindset, health, and fitness so she could answer them live on the podcast!

 

In this episode, Vanessa gets reeeeal! She actually had an epiphany in real-time when discussing some tips on crushing self-sabotage. She dug into how she personally rewires her brain to send her excuses packin’, tips on building muscle when you don’t have access to the big fancy gym equipment, the truth behind fat gain if you eat before bed, and so much more!

 

Below are today’s questions:

 

1:21 Can you please help us with some self-sabotage strategies, like how to overcome self-sabotage?

33:45 What is your favorite quad exercise (small home gym with some machines, but not all the fancy guys)?

35:25 Do you push to failure on each body part in every set? Or do you keep 1-2 reps in reserve at certain times?

38:00 How much of an importance does food timing play?

40:57 Best tips for staying motivated when you’re not seeing physical changes?

51:45 Can you debunk the myth around not eating before bed?

 

I know you will absolutely love this episode! Happy listening!

Discipline Vs Motivation: Which One Leads to Long-Term Success? Interview with Sal Di Stefano - EP91

Discipline Vs Motivation: Which One Leads to Long-Term Success? Interview with Sal Di Stefano - EP91

October 22, 2021

Who will travel further, the man who loves walking, or the man who wants to get to the destination? Over the years, I’ve noticed a common theme amongst many of the women who buy my programs: they’re so focused on the end result that they miss the entire process of getting to that point. Why is that a problem? See, the journey that takes us to our end result is the very part that changes us. It teaches us through our failures and our mistakes. It shows us who we are and what we can overcome. The end result is of course great too, but that’s not where we build our character or learn from our mistakes.

 

In the health and fitness space especially, this can wreak havoc in our lives. 

 

I can’t think of anyone better to delve more into this, than Mind Pump Podcast host and personal trainer, Sal Di Stefano!

 

Sal fell in love with fitness at an early age. He would research the chemistry behind supplements at age 14! He was quite a skinny teenager and used fitness as a way to boost his confidence in his body. He devoured every health and fitness publication and book out there in pursuit of muscle. Then one day, something happened to him that changed his trajectory. His health took a very bad turn (despite feeling like the pillar of fitness for many years).

 

Listen in as he candidly shares his personal health struggles, and how they changed his entire view on health and fitness. He was forced to take a hard look in the mirror at his relentless pursuit of the perfect body and realized something needed to change—and fast.

 

He also digs into the difference between discipline and motivation, and how only one of those is responsible for your ultimate success.

Enjoy this thoroughly!
