Description

Feel Better. Live Free. with Ruth Soukup is the revolutionary health & wellness podcast brought to you by Thinlicious®, created to help midlife women create FREEDOM in our lives through healing our bodies from the inside out, while questioning the outdated mainstream narratives surrounding health and weight loss that haven't worked.


Our mission is to help you find FREEDOM. The freedom to look and feel your best. The freedom to NOT be controlled by food addictions ever again. And the freedom to confidently pursue all your big goals and dreams because your health and weight issues are no longer holding you back.


Each week we’ll talk openly and honestly about what it means to live your best life as a woman in your 40’s, 50’s, and beyond, talking openly and honestly about the highs and lows of weight loss, wellness, cultivating a healthy mindset, and pretty much everything in between.


It’s a place where you'll discover actionable strategies for losing weight and getting healthy, unconventional health breakthroughs that no one else is talking about, and the powerful mindset shifts you’ll need to find lifelong wellness and true happiness (with a whole lot of tough love along the way.)


Basically, this is the podcast to listen to if you're looking for answers to these type of questions:


-Why is it so hard for women over 40 to lose weight?

-How can I improve my mindset and get healthy for life?

-What supplements should I be taking?

-What is gut health, and why does it matter?

-Could I have a thyroid issue?

-What can you eat to reduce inflammation?

-What are the biggest health mistakes to avoid?

-How can you lose weight without dieting?

There’s nothing more inspiring than hearing real people overcome real challenges to get the results they want–especially when those are the same results you’d like to see in your own life! That’s why in this episode we’re going deep with an amazing woman named Tammie Matthews who’s actually been there, and who’s finally seeing massive success after struggling for so long—I can’t wait for you to hear her story!
Have you ever gone to the doctor and had them whip out their prescription pad after just a few minutes and then send you on your way? My guess is the answer is yes, because in this day and age of modern medicine, that's pretty much the normal protocol, right? And it's kind of infuriating, especially when they hardly ask any questions, nor do they even give you a chance to question the diagnosis.Honestly, it's why I'm not a big fan of traditional medicine and why I always recommend looki...
Have you ever had one of those near death moments that completely changed your perspective on life? Where your life flashes before your eyes or you suddenly just wake up and realize it's time to do something different. And I realize that it doesn't always happen like in the movies, right? But those wake up calls do happen.And sometimes. They change everything. And in today's episode, we're going to be chatting with my friend and homesteading expert, Shelby DeVore about the very scary wake up ...
There’s nothing more inspiring than hearing real people overcome real challenges to get the results they want–especially when those are the same results you’d like to see in your own life!That’s why in this episode we’re going deep with an amazing woman named Tiffany Thompson who’s actually been there, and who’s finally seeing massive success after struggling for so long—I can’t wait for you to hear her story!
Do you ever wish you could travel back in time and give yourself a little advice?I do, especially when I think about how much time and energy I wasted doing all the wrong things, or about how many mistakes I made, and how much frustration I could have avoided, had I only known THEN what I know now.And while there's a part of me that understands that sometimes we just need to learn things the hard way, I also think there's something incredibly valuable about sharing those lessons, those mistak...
You are what you eat.It's one of those phrases we've all heard said a million times, and yet how often do we really think about what that actually means, especially when reaching for a bag of potato chips or that Ben & Jerry's hidden deep in your freezer?On a practical, day-to-day level, it can be hard to process the stark reality that the food we're consuming is directly related to our health and how we feel.Because in the moment, our stomachs typically override our brain.And that's exac...
Get more protein.It's a phrase we hear a lot, but not always one we're super good at following through on, even when we're trying to eat healthy.Because the reality is that the Standard American Diet most of us are used to eating is shockingly low in protein, and often even the foods we THINK are high in protein actually aren't.And that means that there's a very good chance most of us are walking around with a protein deficiency without even realizing it.So how much protein do you actually ne...
Do you ever feel like you're doing all the right things for your health, but you're still not seeing the results you want?You're definitely not alone.And honestly, I think it's because so much of the information we've been given about what's actually healthy and what's not is just plain wrong.Because the truth is that there are a LOT of so-called "healthy" foods out there that are actually really bad for us.They're full of sugar and artificial ingredients and all sorts of other junk that is t...
If you’ve ever had a moment where you walked into a room and forgot why you were there, or you couldn’t find your car keys for the millionth time, or you just couldn’t quite remember that person’s name that you just met, then you know how frustrating it can be to feel like your brain is turning to mush.And the reality is, you’re not alone. In fact, cognitive decline is a huge issue for many adults, and it only gets worse as we get older. It’s estimated that by the time we reach our mid-60s, o...
If you grew up in the 80's and 90's like me, then you've probably been conditioned to believe that FAT is BAD.And honestly, I think that's a hard bias to overcome.Because for YEARS, we were told that fat was bad for us, that it clogged our arteries and made us gain weight, that it was the root cause of all of our health problems. And as a result, food manufacturers went out of their way to create low-fat and fat-free versions of all of our favorite foods, and we all went along with it, b...
Today is the day! After many months of blood, sweat & tears—along with a lot of collaboration with you, our Health Rebel community—I’m SO excited to finally be able to tell you that our brand new Thinlicious App is ready for you.And I’m not even kidding when I tell you this is about to become the go-to resource for any woman over 40 who is serious about losing weight and transforming your health.
So here's a fun fact for you: when it comes to losing weight, your body doesn't actually care about your goals.It doesn't care what size jeans you want to fit into, or what the number on the scale says, or whether or not you're finally ready to wear a bikini this summer.But your body does have a goal.And that goal, more than anything else, is to SURVIVE.Your body's primary purpose is SELF-PRESERVATION.To keep your heart pumping and your brain working and your blood flowing through your veins....
There's nothing more frustrating than feeling like you're doing all the right things to lose weight and get healthy, only to see the scale just not budge.Believe me, I get it.After all, it's one thing to KNOW you're not really eating as well as you could be, or that you blew it over the weekend, or that you're just not trying all that hard.But it's a whole different level of frustration when you actually ARE putting in the effort, and yet the scale doesn't reflect it.And while on some level w...
Raise your hand if the biggest reason you haven't actually changed the way you eat is that you're afraid you'll have to give up all the food you love forever.But what if I told you that's not actually true?And what if I told you that the whole point of HEALING YOUR BODY from the inside out—the very thing I talk about over and over again on this podcast, is to get you to a place where you actually feel FREE.TRULY free.Free to indulge if and when you really want to, but not beholden to food add...
Fair warning, friends, I’m coming in hot today, and this episode might get a little bit spicy.In fact, I seriously considered calling this episode, "Why Oprah is full of [you know what!]," but I thought that might not make it past the censors.Yep, I really just said that. I told you it was gonna be spicy!Because I don't know about you, but I recently watched Oprah’s big weight loss special and I have a LOT of thoughts.In case you missed it, let me fill you in: The special was called, "S...
Is 40 really the new 20? Okay maybe not, but as I get ready to celebrate my 46th birthday this week, I contend that there IS definitely a whole lot of life left after 40. In fact, I think I'd even go so far as to say this is my favorite decade so far! And so in celebration of my birthday and hopefully aging gracefully, I thought today I’d share a few of my favorite things about life in my 40s—the things that honestly have surprised me. And whether you're in your 40's, 50's...
If you’ve been listening to this podcast for any amount of time, you've probably heard me mention hormones at least once or twice (or maybe a lot more than that.)Maybe you've heard me say things like weight loss isn't really about calories, it's about hormones, and that if you really want to lose weight, you've got to stop focusing on the same old tired advice to "eat less and exercise more," and instead get your hormones to start functioning the way they were MEANT to function.And it’s true ...
What does it actually mean to be a Health Rebel?If you’ve been listening to this podcast for a little while, or if you get our weekly email newsletter, you’ve probably heard me use that term before. But have you ever wondered what it actually means?Or, more importantly, whether it actually applies to you?ARE you a Health Rebel? That’s exactly what today’s episode is going to help you find out.
Raise your hand if you're a box checker.And by that, I mean, raise your hand if you like to do things RIGHT.If you're going to take on something new, you don't want to take any chances that you could be getting it wrong.And if you're going to focus on losing weight, you're going to follow ALL the rules and do ALL the things.Count your calories. Check.Exercise. Check.Drink lots of water. Check.Totally obsess over the number on the scale. Check.Think about food all the time. Check.I mean, that'...
What if I told you that the reason you've struggled to lose weight and get healthy is NOT because there's something wrong with you, or because you're over 40 and your metabolism has stopped working, or because you're weak and lack the willpower to actually make the necessary changes in your life.What if told you it was something bigger than that?Something a LOT more sinister?What if I told you that the reason you've probably struggled—maybe even your WHOLE LIFE—is because Big Food and Big Pha...
