Fat Cell Researcher, Weight Loss Expert, and Author, Dr. Lori Shemek, joins me to discuss your microbiome, which refers to the delicate balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut. Researchers now know that the state of your microbiome has everything to do with both mental and physical health. Tune in and learn why your microbiome is vitally important, its role in creating inflammation in your body, and how to achieve and maintain a healthy gut. Your quality of life hinges on it!
On this episode of TARA MARIE LIVE, Naturopathic Physician and Certified Nutrition Specialist, Dr. Millie Lytle, joins me to discuss how chronic stress negatively affects your hormones and precipitates disease. Learn how stress generates imbalances in the hormones produced by your adrenal glands, which creates a cascade effect, disrupting other critical hormones in your body. If you suffer with low immunity, chronic upper respiratory conditions, infertility, diabetes, insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, metabolic disorders, anxiety, depression, thyroid dysfunction, or any chronic disease, stress is likely the root cause. Tune in and get the facts!
When it comes to living lean, your success or lack thereof will boil down to your metabolic rate, or your metabolism. We've all heard that, in order to maintain an ideal level of body fat, we must exercise. Most people erroneously believe that extra calories are burned only during their exercise session. Knowing how many people dislike or even hate to exercise, I wanted to boost your motivation to engage in physical activity by taking time to explain how exercise not only revs your caloric burn, but also your metabolism...even after you stop moving!
Put exercise at the top of your list.
If you are truly committed to achieving your goals, you will sometimes have to sacrifice other things to make room for your fitness program. I am not suggesting that you don't take your sick child to the doctor, but you may have to forgo meeting your friends for drinks after work when your time is tight.
Join Karol Ward, host of The Body-Mind-Wellness Show, as she interviews Tara Marie about the real secrets of getting and staying fit. What mindset is needed to reach your health and fitness goals? Tune in and learn how to create leverage and make the mental shift necessary to achieve lasting physical transformation. You were born to be a champion, and Tara Marie will teach you how to reach your highest potential!
Life is a mental game. Even physical endeavors, like getting lean and fit, begin in the mind. Every behavior is preceded by a thought and a decision to carry through on that thought. Champions are first champions in their own minds, and only then can their greatness come to fruition in a physical sense. Never underestimate the mental training required to succeed in life. As a personal fitness trainer, I often spend more time working on a client’s mental fitness than I do his or her physical fitness. Until we are mentally prepared to succeed, good results will be impermanent, and frustration will persist.
In order to compete as a Natural Figure Competitor, one must be consumed with the preparation. The process is long, detailed, and often grueling. Even a minor distraction in life can be enough to pull you off track. My career began relatively late, at the age of 38—but with proper nutrition and training, I was able to develop my physique and make it to the Pros! Competing has not only taught me about the benefits of discipline at the gym, but also the benefits of discipline in life.
