Key Takeaways:

  • A nourishing way of eating is not just what you eat, it’s how you eat it and why you eat it. It’s eating food while understanding your goals and your bio-individuality.
  • There is a huge benefit for women when it comes to strength training that goes beyond aesthetics.
  • There is no one correct diet that applies to everyone. There are multiple ways of doing things. The question is not whether a certain food is right, but whether it’s right for you or someone else.


Action Steps:

  • Reclaim your health and be free from diet rules.
  • Make sure that you’re in line with the core 4 pillars of health
    • Eat nourishing foods.
    • Strengthen your body.
    • Recharge your energy.
    • Get your mindset right.
  • If you’re serious about getting started in strength training, go to a place where you can learn from someone.


Steph said:

“Women are really good at thinking about eat less, move more. But oftentimes, we’re missing a lot of what I call low-hanging fruit, easy changes that we can make in these other areas or other ways of thinking about food.”


“We absorb so many things consciously, subconsciously. We’re explicitly taught things. And having awareness is a key first step… It’s just a practice of observing your own thoughts and behaviors.”
