Hormones, Cholesterol and Nutrients You Need! - Ep. 023

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 023! Today Kylene is teaching us all about the proper care and maintenance of your hormones. There are things that negatively affect hormones and there are nutrients that are beneficial for hormones, too. Let’s dive in!

 

Kylene is talking about progesterone, estrogen, testosterone and cortisol. These are your steroidal hormones and they are made from cholesterol.

 

You need cholesterol for hormone balance because it’s what your steroidal hormones are made out of. Low cholesterol diets of the past are not good for you. You may be skeptical if you’ve been told for years that cholesterol was bad. Research is now showing that the body creates its own cholesterol in much larger amounts than are contributed through diet. 85% of the cholesterol in the circulation system is produced by the liver. So, avoiding cholesterol in your foods won’t reduce the cholesterol levels in your blood very much. Go ahead and keep your egg yokes!

 

Things that negatively affect hormones are food sensitivities and gut flora issues. Food sensitivities and parasites alike can break through your gut lining, cause inflammation and ramping up your immune system. Read for yourself here:

The nutrients you need for healthy hormones are: vitamin c, magnesium, selenium and zinc. Kylene gives us a few recommendations for healthy foods that will power our hormones. Just a few of them are strawberries, avocado, pumpkin seeds, sea weed, oysters, leafy greens, mushrooms, crab and beef liver supplements.

The Living Well Code with Lisa McCoskey - Ep. 018

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 018. Today Kylene Terhune brings on special guest, Lisa McCoskey. Lisa is a Nutritional Consultant, Toxin-free Lifestyle Coach and Emotion Code Practitioner.  Listen in to learn more about how to find healing through the physical, emotional and spiritual sides of your health.

 

Lisa has found amazing healing power using The Emotion Code, which releases trapped, underlying emotions that are poisoning your energy. The power of energy in our bodies cannot be overestimated. We can see this clearly with the effects that stress has on illness, for example. Lisa uses prayer to release the trapped emotion and her patients can then heal and grow.

 

There are some simple lifestyle changes that Kylene and Lisa recommend to protect your energy. For your mind, stay away from the news, and for your body, realize that whatever you’re putting into your body is either helping your health or hurting it! Food journals help us connect how we feel with what we eat. We’re often not even in-tune with that connection and how we can take charge of how we feel by eating intuitively.

 

These 3 foods may not get a lot of attention in the media but they offer many real benefits:

  1. Drink celery water first thing in the morning.
  2. Eat wild blueberries
  3. Incorporate bone broth into your recipes.

 

You can find The Living Well code at amazon.com  https://amzn.to/2JuM7Jb

 

Thanks for tuning in today and we'll be back next week!

Fast and Easy Meals - Ep. 015

Welcome to The Tiny Fit Diva Podcast Episode 015. Today Kylene Terhune is sharing all of her most popular tips on fast and easy meals. Kylene has been on the look out for the best healthy recipes for years and her meal plans are amazing. Tune in to learn more! 

 

First off, she has a couple of programs coming up in July: her Get Gutsy Program and her Hormone Hacker Program. 

 

Gut health is a critical foundation to a healthy lifestyle. The Get Gutsy Program isn’t necessarily a detox, diet or weight loss plan, but weight loss is definitely a happy side effect.   

 

The Hormone Hacker Program is for anyone who has noticed high stress, weight loss resistance, acne, or irregular periods. Hormone balance is the answer!

 

Now on to one questions Kylene is asked most frequently! “What do you eat?”

 

Follow her on Instagram @thetinyfitdiva to see what she’s eating and what she’s cooking each day. She’s giving us the run down right now!

 

For breakfast. We need to get away from sugary, starchy and heavily-processed carbohydrate breakfast foods. We’re talking about Pop-tarts, toast, and cereal. Those foods just set you up for a blood sugar roller coaster. They increase your blood glucose levels and you’ll be dipping by mid-morning. Kylene eats vegetables, healthy fats and proteins for breakfast. Sauerkraut is the bees knees. You heard it here first! It’s like taking a probiotic, but it’s guaranteed to get through your entire system because it’s in a whole food form. She eats a quarter-half cup per day. Try it with eggs and salsa! Other breakfast options include homemade breads or paleo muffins. There are amazing recipes here:

For lunch: The most obvious answer is to heat up last night’s dinner leftovers. For those of you who may be crunched for time, this is a very helpful system. Heating up leftovers in the microwave is totally fine. You don’t have to feel guilty about using a microwave. Science is back from deliberation and we’re good to go!

 

For dinner: Plan a vegetable and protein combo. Use your crock pot or insta pot to whip up soups, stews and casseroles. Make lots so there are leftovers. You can even freeze extra servings!

 

For snacks: Keep it simple. Kylene loves to snack on apples, nuts, seeds and the Chocolate-Vegan Shakeology shakes.

 

Here’s a Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding Recipe that is a great go-to:

 

1 can of full fat coconut milk

1/4 cup of chia seeds, whole or ground up

2 T honey

1/4 C. cocoa powder (optional)

 

Mix well, refrigerate overnight and enjoy!

 

Kylene’s last tip for successful healthy eating is to set aside a little meal prep time over the weekend. Do yourself a favor and make healthy eating fun!
