TMHS 053: Getting A Mindset Makeover, Food Cravings, And Food Separatism With Alex Jamieson

Everyday, people all over the world are adopting a healthier lifestyle. More people are going vegan, paleo, primal, or “real food” than ever before.

What’s causing this cultural shift is:
1) people are sick and tired of being sick and tired and
2) beliefs about food bind us together, create communities, and communities inherently grow.

With the internet eliminating the borders of people sharing ideas, beliefs, and insights, these communities are expanding rapidly. Even though the health conversation has exploded worldwide, different views by different communities can bring people together AND tear people apart. We’re going to talk in depth about this today.

We’re also going to talk with our special guest, Alex Jamieson, about her experience being a part of the Oscar nominated film Supersize Me. She’s going to share the intimate effects it had on her life, as well as our culture at large. We’re going to cover food cravings, raw vs. cooked food, mistakes people make on diets, plus a whole lot more. Get ready, because this episode is powerful!

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • How Alex went from being sick and overweight to a renowned gourmet chef and health coach.
  • What Alex’s experience in the film Supersize Me taught her about food and illness.
  • How Supersize Me changed the landscape of food around the world.

    What a story, i loved listening I’m a firebrand! can’t wait for my results. What a interesting thing about the marketing of one’s identity when you change and evolve. Something really to think about and expect as I get older, learn and get back into health and fitness

      True, true, and true. So happy that myself and others have the opportunity to “stand on the shoulders of giants” and get a heads up of what’s to come… AND be able to do things bigger and better as a nice side effect.
