Introducing Live. Love. Eat., the podcast!

This weekend I recorded the first episode of a weekly podcast.  It is called Live. Love. Eat, and each episode is an interview with someone who has stepped up to share the story of her (or his) relationships with food and with her body.  She may be a disordered eater, she may be a paleo dieter, she may be totally at peace with her body or not.  The whole point being that I can do all of the writing on my blog here that I want, but I will never be able to do something as empowering, comforting, and inspiring as sharing with y’all the beautiful and brilliant lives of others.

Additionally: I really, passionately want this movement to be about community ownership.  It’s not just me, living the example– it’s millions, and every one of us has a powerful story and voice.  I consider it an honor to be gifted with those stories, and an even greater honor to share them with the community.

Episode One is with guest Manda Leisten.

Amanda Leisten (Manda) was born and raised in Colorado but has recently embraced Sioux Falls, South Dakota as her current home. She makes a living through American Sign Language Interpreting which is just one of her many passions. She loves spending time with family and friends, enjoys a good book, feels at peace when writing, and sings almost constantly. Much to Stefani’s chagrin she also is quite fond of the color pink. Loving life and living to love is what she is most driven by and she is currently working toward the serenity of self-love. Manda, also, is a compulsive overeater and a member of Overeaters Anonymous a 12-step program geared toward helping disordered eaters find serenity through self-growth and acceptance. She is engaged to be married to Ben who, too, is a disordered eater. They enjoy cooking healthful foods together and helping each other continue to love and discover new things about themselves. Their future plans currently contain nothing but bliss and happiness because Manda is working diligently on not planning too many things; just enjoying life as it comes. Manda’s most recent ambition is to help the women of the world help and love themselves as they are, which is why she is a part of this kick-ass revolution.  She can be read at her blog: primalterp.blogspot.com, or reached at her gmail, amleisten06@gmail.com.

Two final relevant notes:

If you would like to be on the podcast, please contact me via my contact tab.  I would love to have you on, no matter where you on your journey or what kind of person you are, or how popular or not.  We are all worth it, and I want the depth and reality of your life to be heard, should you have something you would like to say.

Leaving a review of the podcast really is important.  It’s the most powerful way to reach people who might find resonance in and solace from our work.  Sharing it in other mediums is cool, too, as in everything we do, but in all cases I invite you to help us as much as you please.  Podcasts, additionally, are expensive, if you want to help us in that donation kind of way.

One fun relevant note:

I grew up with a speech impediment.  I’m mostly better these days, but I’ll be tickled if you can spot it and poke fun at me.

Shattering the myth of fasting for women: A review of sex-specific responses to fasting in the literature

Hey all.  I just put up what I think is an important post over at PfW.  It surveys the medical literature and finds that intermittent fasting may not be healthy for women, especially normal-weight women of reproductive age.   Crazy, I know.

I also have a new project debuting this week or next that I’m super pumped about.  It’s an attempt to share the stories of individuals’ journeys with food and their health.  I’ll let you know when it goes up, then you can get involved, if you like.

Cheers,

Stef

Three posts on an evolutinary perspective empowering women!

I have allowed my fire-spitting to permeate my other blog.   In some ways I feel a need to apologize to Paleo Pepper, but in reality I cannot because what I am working on is the same mission, just on a larger scale.  That said, I am becoming more certain that my activity will be concentrated at PfW, but I am going to keep this site up to maintain the archives–which I still believe in and love deeply–and also to encourage women to contact me if they find me through this blog.

But the reason I say my work is moving is because it is growing.  Paleo for Women is about health, but it’s broader mission is to convince women to love their natural bodies, and to nourish themselves as natural bodies.   And it’s not about me, but about us.  

For that reason, I ask that you head over to facebook and join/like our group, Paleo for Women.

I think, also, that many of you will enjoy the three posts I just put up at Paleo for Women, articulating my feelings and position on the subject:

1) Women, Weight Loss, and Modern America: A World in Need of Revolution

2) The Healthiest, Happiest, Easiest Weight Loss in the World

3) The Evolutionary Perspective: Liberating and Empowering a Woman’s Self-hood

Thank you.  Please join us in the revolution.  It’s powerful, and real, and I want you with us–strong and hot and fierce–so, very badly.
