I’m so excited to announce that my dear friend, Ari Whitten, has published an amazing new book. It’s called Eat for Energy: How to Beat Fatigue, Supercharge Your Mitochondria, and Unlock All-Day Energy. In this week’s Vlog, I’m going to share with you what he discusses in chapter 2, which is all about the science of how the food you eat (and WHEN you eat it) affects your circadian rhythm.
A new round of the Gideon Games starts this week. These games are fun, 90-day contests available to all members that promote accountability, support, and connection. During the first-ever round, I was a participant. This time, I’ve decided to be a Team Leader, and I’m already learning so much. Watch the Vlog to hear my thoughts.
I was on a coaching call a few days ago and spoke with one of our incredible Bright Lifers who drew my attention to an interesting Maintenance topic that I hadn’t covered at all before in the Vlog. Since we’ve spent the last couple of weeks in BLE Land talking about all things Maintenance, it seemed like the perfect time to discuss it. Watch the Vlog to hear my thoughts.
A few weeks ago, while I was battling COVID, our refrigerator ended up breaking. Due to my extreme fatigue and the reality of our unfortunate appliance situation, I ended up ordering takeout for dinner nearly a month straight. Over time, this started to mess with my head. Watch this week’s Vlog to hear what I did about it and how it relates to our Art of Maintenance extravaganza that’s happening right now.
I was coaching a Bright Lifer recently on the daily Accountability Call, and she shared an experience with her food that she’d just had at a party. I strongly related to the internal struggle she described, so I decided to shoot a Vlog all about it. Watch to hear my thoughts.
The concept of the “10++” on the Susceptibility Scale has come up twice in my life recently, so I took that as a sign it was time to shoot a Vlog on it. Watch to hear my thoughts.
Recently, I was scrolling on social media while I rest and recover from COVID, and I saw someone posting pictures of their BLE food where just about every picture had a waffle in it. Now, I don’t know what the waffles were made of, but it got me thinking about an important topic for this week’s Vlog. Watch to hear my thoughts.
This Vlog was supposed to be all about a new livestream I’m presenting and an exciting 2-week event that we were going to hold…but I caught Covid a little over a week ago, and I’m just not recovering fast enough. I thought I’d be able to push through, but I realized this morning that I simply can’t. Watch the Vlog to hear all about it.
In last week’s Vlog, I talked about the process of letting go of our favorite binge foods, and in the comment section below that video, a viewer offered a brilliant analogy that I want to share with you today. He suggested that we should think of our cravings from the perspective of an outsider so that we’re a witness to them instead of being a victim of them. Watch to hear my response to his astute observations.
Sugar and flour encapsulate the vast majority of what we abstain from in Bright Line Eating in order to heal our brains and our bodies as we lose all our excess weight. In today’s Vlog, I talk about one of the foods that we include under the “sugar and flour” umbrella: potato chips. Watch to hear the science behind why they’re just as dangerous.
