#61 Carbs (Sugars) Are The Enemy Part III
Not only are we told that carbs are the enemy, but we are also told that sugar causes weight gain, sugar is poison, sugar is evil, eliminate sugar.... In the third part of the 'Carbs are the Enemy' Series, we look closer into sugar, the research around it, they myths, the facts, and some funnies in amongst all the seriousness. If you haven't listened to the first and second part of this series, I highly recommend you do so.

#59 The Two Sides To Achieving Any Goal
If we want to achieve any goal, it always involves two distinct sides: The NumbersThe Drama The numbers is all the scientific and mathematical principles that are necessary for you to actually achieve that goal. The drama is all the emotion that we create and experience along the way. In this episode, we explore 6 important factors to help you move towards your body composition goal on the numbers side, and 6 crucial things on the drama side. I believe so passionately that the two must work hand in hand. If you want to experience long term success, you must understand both sides of the equation, and be willing to explore each point with curiosity.

#58 The Role of Dopamine
Dopamine was originally thought of as critical in the "pleasure" system of the brain. Research began to show that dopamine is also critical in causing seeking behaviour. Dopamine causes you to want, to desire, to seek out, and search. It is released when your brain is expecting a reward. So essentially, it is the 'desire' transmitter - responsible for creating the DESIRE before the reward. In today's episode we look at how to turn this around in your favour, and why living a life with conscious intention and thinking on purpose is so important in the pursuit of your goals.

#57 Control What You Can Control
So many things in life feel like they are out of our control. And when we feel out of control, we can often 'cope' by overeating, or by experiencing anger, or by feeling frustration. But what if I was to tell you that there is so much more within your control? Probably more than you realise. What if I was to share with you that sorting through and decluttering your brain, just like you would your pantry, is going to be one of the greatest gifts you can do for yourself? In today's episode we look at controlling what we can control, and bringing clarity to our thoughts through a de-clutter process.

#56 When You've Never Done it Before
What we focus on expands. What we water, grows. What we pay attention to, becomes larger. And when it feels like things are against you, it is easy to become focused on the negative. But if you shift your thinking to gratitude, and that things are happening FOR us, it brings so many new opportunities. From THIS space, we need to embrace a willingness to do new things, and not let the fact that we've 'never done it before', stop us. Don't let that be the determining factor for you not giving it another go. It starts with a decision to try new things.

#55 Raw Food, Detox Cleanses and Organic. Fact or Fiction?
We are told from our grandparents, our doctors, the latest blog or from 'influencers' that we should eat ONLY raw foods, ONLY organic, ONLY unprocessed, and that detoxing is absolutely necessary.

Proactivity or Reactivity? Where are you living?
How can we go from healthy, lean, athletic, sporty women in our younger years, to the opposite end of the scale - being overweight, tired, un-confident, and unmotivated? It is a question I've asked myself because I experienced this polarity, and tried desperately to get back to that earlier space through dysfunctional yo-yo dieting. The biggest thing we tend to do is blindly follow nutrition plans or exercise regimes, but never really look at the things that are going on between our ears. Let's explore those things today.

#52 How to Stop Yo-Yo-ing
Over the course of 15 years, I yo-yo dieted. Sometimes it was a big yo-yo, like 25kg (55 pounds) of weight loss, 25+kg weight regain, other times smaller increments. But I just somehow couldn't stop myself from this weight loss - weight regain cycle, no matter how big or small. In this episode, we look at why we keep doing this craziness over and over again. We dive into the reasons why we sabotage our results, or why we don't even get started in the first place. Then we walk through a 4 step process to get you off this insane cycle. If you are keen to join me in a much more connected way, jump over to: www.sallypriest.com/waitlist to be first to hear about The Feminine & Fierce Academy that is coming soon.

#51 What Beliefs Are Holding You Back?
We all have beliefs. And we believe what we believe because we know it to be true. A lot of our beliefs are shared by others, but some beliefs we differ greatly on. But have you ever asked yourself why you believe what you believe (about any given situation)? We don't usually explore what we already know, because we already know it, right? Today we challenge all of that. We look deeper into what beliefs are, why we justify our behaviour, and what things might be disguising themselves as useful, when really they are limiting our progress.

#48 Toddler Vs Adult - Who will win?
What happens when you step on the scales and instead of losing weight, you've gained weight? You've worked SO hard, it literally doesn't seem fair. What happens when you have a bad day. From the get-go you felt out of control with your eating and a sneaky snack of oreos turns into an all-day binge fest. We have 2 brains inside our head, both with different roles to play. Our adult brain, and our toddler brain. Letting your toddler brain be in charge of making decisions is like letting a toddler run through the house with a knife! Its dangerous, right? You just wouldn't let that happen. Today's episode outlines the purpose of both these parts of our brains, and how to use them to their best potential for you and your goals.
