Now onto the show!
It’s changed my life this last, this last 13 months has changed my life for myself as a father, as a husband, as a friend. It’s certainly changed my waistline’s sides and the type of jeans that I can wear.
It sounds like it was your mindset that’s really allowing you to fully become yourself, but also it’s that mindset that’s helping you change your health habits.
Oh, that’s beautiful. Like, I talk about this a lot, this idea of leaning into the pain and really the human work that we have to do in order to make a lifestyle change. Like those emotions, those feelings, those wounds of the past, whatever it is, those beliefs and perceptions that we grew up with, all of those, like it’s in our mind.
I remember scarlet and...
Does your nutrition dogma get in the way of the wisdom of your body? Do you rationalize your commitment to a food paradigm instead of honoring when change is called for? Do you have unresolved emotional pain that expresses as self-sabotage when it comes to your wellness? Harness the power of your mind to re-evaluate your perspective with a sense of humor, common sense, and a great deal of gentleness.
Today, enjoy a reboot of an honest, compassionate, and funny conversation between host Christa King of Fitlandia, and guest celebrity JP Sears.
Here’s what JP had to say:
Because of the corporate agenda and funding into research, these studies aren’t for the greater good of people, but instead putting dollars into their pockets. Christa concurs. She points out that there is conflicting info in the industry and JP...
Hello Fitlandians and welcome back to the podcast! This is episode number 78 and today my best is Brooke Alpert, Registered Dietitian, nutrition consultant, and author of The Diet Detox.
So today I’m here with Brooke Alpert. Brooke is celebrating the release of her new book, The Diet Detox and is a Registered Dietitian. Welcome, Brooke!
For those who are new to the podcast, Fitlandia is all about NOT dieting…so it was a natural fit to invite Brooke to the show when I discovered her new book. Let’s have Brooke talk a little bit about how this book came to be.
Brooke says she has been a Registered Dietitian for 10 and ½ years and has owned her own private practice that entire time. Her focus is in weight loss…she helps people lose weight but not with harmful dieting. After the birth of her 2nd daughter, she had the hardest time losing the excess weight and was feeling quite like a fraud in her business.
She was feeling uncomfortable in her own...
Caution, we use some adult language in this episode!

Hello Fitlandia Family!
Today we are here with Allison Pelot, a fellow Portland-based fitness guru and amazing holistic nutrition and fitness coach. We are so excited to talk about achieving hormonal balance with nutrition strategies. Can’t wait!
Allison has a flourishing physical practice here in Portland where she hosts classes, offers nutritional and functional training as well as offering one on one coaching. She has been studying the biochemistry of the body for around 10 years now and applies this knowledge to help people feel and perform their best.
Allison explains how she has seen many people struggle with digestion, even including foods that are considered health foods. Things like nuts and seeds, raw veggies, and grains tend to be difficult for digestive systems to process the nutrients properly and can often cause severe digestive discomfort.
The typical process that Allison walks clients through checks these four boxes:
1) Discover Your...
Welcome back Fitlandians! Today we are talking to Alex Cunningham, Head of Partnerships for Perfect Keto health supplements, all about making healthy food choices and how ANY dietary strategy that is considered a health strategy can be unhealthy.
The Perfect Keto Story:
Alex explains how his health journey, like many journeys to health and wellness, began with rock bottom at age 23. It was then that he discovered Dr. Anthony Gustin and his blog which helped change his life from frozen meals and takeout to healthy food choices, creative cooking and an active, healthy lifestyle.
Perfect Keto was born from the transition that both Dr. Gustin and Alex took from a whole food and paleo lifestyle to a keto approach. During this transition they found less than ideal options for products to assist with Ketogenic eating. They wanted a supplement that not only assisted with ketosis but also tasted great, was made with clean ingredients, and was offered at a great price. What they...

Jasmine’s Tips on Perfectly Roasted Veggies:
As the holidays roll in we’re granted with an abundance of joys, more time off work, a shift in the seasons and time with family and friends. This for many of us, also includes an overload of comfort foods, sweet treats we’ve adored since childhood and social events surrounded by alcohol. Christa shares she’s been indulging in more alcohol than she’d like to with the stresses and celebrations surrounding the launch of her new book, Strategic Vitality: 11 Small Steps to a Big Transformation.
She explains coming off an amazing high after her book launch party which occurred last Saturday, excited that she could continue to share her story, her struggles and how she works on overcoming them. Christa has always been very open with her listeners about her love for wine and donuts, and is proud to bring more awareness about how common our reliance on sugar, refined carbs and alcohol truly is.
