"If you take the 1.4 billion people around the world, which now is less, thank goodness....." Michael said, just after praising Bill Gates who has committed his life to depopulating humanity. Is this how Michael is committed to decreasing poverty - helping depopulate? Yikes!!

hey girl, love the podcast! I always assumed you would never struggle with your weight, because the podcast is so spot on with health. It is very refreshing to hear a raw truth. makes you very relatable for me. I have also had some struggles. I started dieting last year and began to hate myself. in a way I never felt before. this year I am doing the deep emotional work to heal and physical changes are happening. I threw away the scale but I can feel it. you cannot hate yourself into health. so powerful. thank you for the great info always provided on wellness mama.

To answer your question in the description, I don't feel good about eating meat at all. It's an ethical standpoint that I don't want to kill something when I have a plethora of other plant based options available that are cheaper, tastier and better for the environment. From an environmental standpoint people need to eat less meat and buy from sustainable sources. From an ethical standpoint, I personally can't back eating meat since it's proven to be unnecessary in having a healthy life for me.

You mention at one point in the podcast that you need to avoid high amounts of saturated fat. What necessitates that? How do we know if that is our situation or not?

I though she sounded off a little as well, but then I listened to it again. I think she just has a lot of energy and passion for what she does. I took a lot away from the episode, including a desire to have half of her energy!

Episode 192 with Dr. Sonja Jenson is powerful! I've listened to many podcasts on hormones and women's health so I almost skipped this one as I thought it was going to be information I already knew, but she has so much information to share.
