As a trainer and transformation specialist, best selling author, and co-host of ABC’s hit show “Extreme Weight Loss, Heidi Powell knows a thing or two about fitness. What she teaches though may surprise you. Instead of focusing on deprivation, Heidi teaches that victory is “not the number on the scale” but “who you’ve become along the way”.
In this episode we dive into the misconceptions women have about fitness and health, how we can break the negative cycles of shame in our fitness journey, and place importance on small measurable goals. If you struggle with consistency, or feel stuck in a negative cycle, this episode will empower you to not only overcome bad habits but truly love yourself along the way.
Questions I Asked Heidi:
Why do you think deprivation leads us down the wrong path?
Why should women stop starving themselves and eat more?
How did you and your husband create your business and show?
How deprevention leads to a binge/restrict cycle.
The importance of self love to transform our bodies.
Relationships and picking the right partner.
