Today I chat with qualified personal trainer Soph Allen. Soph is an experienced coach specialising in female transformations. She founded Train With Soph, a health and fitness coaching platform and app that delivers custom training and nutrition programs, educational and mindset content for women. She’s also a social media personality, known for keeping it real on Instagram and YouTube.  I’ve got Soph on today’s podcast to chat about her experiences with competing. I, like many others, have always considered doing a bikini or fitness competition, but never have. Soph has competed and is a wealth of knowledge on the subject. So today we talk about what competing is, the differences between the federations and divisions, why someone might want to compete, what goes into a comp prep, how peak week looks, what stage day looks like, why having abs isn’t actually healthy, the hardest parts about comp prep and the pro and cons of competing.When listening to this episode just keep in mind that I think achieving the levels of leanness required for bikini/fitness competitions is not healthy for most and should only be done for a very short period of time under the guidance of multiple professionals. This episode is intended to be an unbiased discussion about Soph’s experiences with competing.If you would like to learn more about Soph check out her Instagram and YouTube.Please subscribe and leave me a review If you enjoyed this podcast, please tag me and share it in your Instagram stories and leave me a positive rating or review in the purple Apple Podcast app (in the rating & reviews section underneath the episode lists).

Movies, TV, magazines and Instagram would have us believe that washboard, 8 pack abs are the holy grail of health and fitness. However, the reality is that our bodies (especially those of women) did not evolve to function properly with a very low body fat percentage. In the case of women, the level of energy restriction that is required to lower our body fat percentage to under 20% can have adverse effects on our reproductive systems and fertility, as well as a number of other aspects of our physiology.  Today I talk with Amy Giannotti, a dietitian from Melbourne and the director of Eating Fit. Amy specialises in eating disorders, disordered eating and has a special interest in helping people recover from hypothalamic amenorrhea (loss of period) after overcoming her own personal journey and struggles with the condition.  We start off by discussing what hypothalamic amenorrhea (HA) is and how it’s diagnosed, what the long term health effects of HA are and compare it to RED-S syndrome. We then talk about how HA is linked to infertility, how you can recover from it and how food and nutrition is crucial for recovery. We discuss how long it takes on average for women to see their period’s returning and also what to do if you’re on birth control and may not be aware that you’ve lost your period.  This episode is a must listen to for all females, coaches and those working in the space of women’s health and weight loss. To learn more about Amy and her courses and coaching, head to her website and follow her on Instagram (@amyleegiannotti) or listen to her podcast, Healthy Life Redefined.  Please subscribe and leave me a review If you enjoyed this podcast, please tag me and share it in your Instagram stories and leave me a positive rating or review in the purple Apple Podcast app (in the rating & reviews section underneath the episode lists).

I support this podcast and Leanne so much that I went through the trouble of registering to leave a comment. As a dietitian myself I am always looking to grow my knowledge base. this podcast, from the very first episode I listened to has been a gift, such a collection of knowledge. The best thing about it is that I trust Leanne and I know her messages are evidence based. I shared a lot of the information with my patients the very same day! Thanks Leanne. You have a huge fan in me!
