The Girlfriend Doctor w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

Aug 25, 2019

Our health is the most important thing we can have and nurture! And there are so many ways to obtain optimum health, but what our guest, Leanne Vogel, and I have in common is our love and support of the ketogenic way of life. Following a keto diet is one of the healthiest ways to lose weight, keep it off, and balance your hormones.

Leanne is a nutrition educator, author, and podcast host. She has spent the last decade reshaping how she approaches food and nutrition so that you can feel happy, healthy, and in control with how you eat. 

When it comes to our health, it’s important to look at it all. What I mean is, we can’t just look at the physical part, but our spiritual and mental health is just as important. And above all, being able to laugh at ourselves is so healthy!

When we’re following a diet, we all need to remember that indulging in a sweet or dessert is absolutely okay. We don’t want to deprive ourselves, because deprivation can lead to binging, and ruining all the healthy habits we’ve developed. But that’s why we need to listen to what our bodies want.

Men and women have such differing body images. Did you know that you can adjust the way you think about your body? It might take a lot of inner work, but it might also look like leaving relationships with people who put you down.

Leanne talks about shadow and limiting beliefs in-depth and how you can recognize when you have them. These types of beliefs are deeply personal, but you have the power to overcome them. She also explains why you should make self-care a priority every single day.

Do you know the importance of listening to how your body wants to eat? How do you handle negative self-talk? What do you do for self-care every day?

“I’m more than Keto. I’m so much more than a diet, I’m so much more than this body.” (4:39)

“Nobody cares about our body. So many people are so wrapped up in their own stuff, that nobody actually cares about your body. The only person that cares about your body is you and you have the power to adjust that.” (17:46)

“There’s so much more to this than weight loss, there’s so much more to this than macros. Yes, the ketogenic diet is super powerful and will change your life but if you’re not willing to put in ‘The Work,’ you’re only going to go so far. Because those limiting shadow beliefs will constantly be behind you, ready to sabotage your efforts, and you need to work through that in order to gain a life you’ve always wanted.” (26:00)
