Ep 70 Dr. Lori Shemek - Intermittent Fasting and Ketogenic Dieting

I am excited to introduce to you our guest this week, best-selling author, radio host, and weight loss expert, Dr. Lori Shemek.

Listen to the podcast HERE

In this episode, Dr. Shemek talks to us about the role of inflammation in illness and weight gain. She discusses with us the dangers of the “calorie myth” and the “low fat myth” and why it is important for us to be consuming sources of healthy fats.

We also discuss the importance of omega 3, the best sources of protein, and how we can appropriately gain muscle while losing body fat.

This is an educational episode for those who want to better understand weight loss and regain control over their diet.

Linda Mitchell

Linda Mitchell is more than qualified to help women reach a point of empowerment . As an Institute of Integrative Nutrition graduate, an award-winning fitness competitor, and elite obstacle racer. she collaborated on the fitness portion of the book “Fat Flush for Life” with mentor and New York Times Best Selling author Ann Louise Gittleman. This book was listed in Time magazine as one of the top ten diet books for 2009. As a former columnist for 12 years for Ms. Fitness magazine, Linda decided to put everything into a book and it really evolved and became “The Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T.”.  Her book and the studio are all about helping women build confidence and self-esteem and learning to feel 100% great about themselves.    

Mitchell launched The Chickfit Studio in 2013. She says “At Chickfit, our priority is building women’s self-confidence. Our belief is that their newfound self-love will transfer into giving support and love to one another. Self-improvement equals empowerment.”

Mitchell was inspired to open The Chickfit Studio after she found that deep down in her heart she wanted to do something that was worthwhile and made real, lasting changes in people’s lives. She opened The Chickfit Studio after working as a group fitness director and personal trainer for about 25 years.
