The Journey to Optimal Health with Michael Martz

I must admit, I’m a sucker for a good transformation story. I never get tired of hearing how people face great challenges and overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. There’s just something about stories of facing hardship – of real-life struggles – and coming out the other end a better person. And today’s guest is a perfect…

Coach’s Corner – Can You Really Be Healthy At Any Size?

In this week’s episode of the Coach’s Corner, I start out by announcing my new Facebook group – the Over 50 Lean Body Blueprint – and inviting you to join.  Then I take on the delicate subject of the “healthy at any size” movement, and conclude with a brief discussion of the importance of maintaining…

Flipping the Script with Andy Petranek

We live in society that rewards having. Having a nice house, a fancy car, an important job title, a college degree, a fit body. And there’s nothing wrong with any of those things. I have or have had all those things. But where we run into trouble is when we allow having these things to…

How To Create Your Fittest Future Self with Kathleen Trotter

We are culturally programmed to focus on the outcome – not the journey. Afterall, we are rewarded for outcomes. But this model applies poorly to health and fitness. When we focus primarily on “losing weight” or “getting fit,” we miss a huge component of creating sustainable life-long change. And that’s the journey – as in…

Coach’s Corner – How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

In this week’s episode of the Coach’s Corner I start out by giving you my top 10 tips to help you stick with your New Year’s resolution this year, and then spend a few minutes discussing my new online programming option and why those might – or might not – be a good option for…

How To Train for Your First Powerlifting Meet with Andy Baker

I have a confession to make. I’m not particularly strong. I mean, I suppose compared to other 57 year olds in the general population I might be considered strong. I’m certainly fit and healthy, and my body type could be described as lean and athletic. Not don’t get me wrong – I’m not weak. In…

Coach’s Corner – Reflections on 99 Episodes

In this week’s episode of the Coach’s Corner I start out by reflecting back on some of the highlights of this podcast so far, and then I spend a few minutes talking about some exciting changes that are happening here at the Over 50 Health & Wellness podcast in the coming new year.  The links…

Reverse Dieting Demystified with Holly Baxter

Imagine this scenario. You’re 30 pounds overweight, and in fact you’ve been overweight pretty much all of your adult life. Perhaps you’ve lost some or all of this weight several times in the last 25 years. The times you’ve tried dieting have been awful. You were constantly hungry, you were cranky, and a few weeks…

Coach’s Corner – Does Your Food Need a Warning Label?

In this week’s episode of the Coach’s Corner I start out by talking about Newsweek’s recent cover story titled “Toxic Food: You Meal Should Come with a Warning Label.” And why I think this is such a big deal. Then I talk a bit about how much sugar the average person consumes, why that’s very…

Intermittent Fasting for Vibrant Health with Laurie Lewis

Intermittent fasting seems to be all the rage right now. When people find out I’m a nutrition coach, one of the most common questions I get asked is “What do you think about intermittent fasting?” And to be honest, as a weight loss tool, I’ve been fairly neutral. If you enjoy eating that way and…
