The birth control pill is convenient, prolific and utterly pervasive. It's even touted as the cure for much that ails us. The Pill is taken by millions of women at some stage in their lives, and few of us realize that it is not without long term side effects. Clear links have been established between hormonal contraceptives and health dangers, including infertility. It's time to get the facts, and to educate ourselves so that we're making informed decisions. In this episode, Jane Bennett shares some of her extensive research, and empowers us to take back control over our health and choices.

Jenna Elfman on Life, Marriage & Making it all Work.


[show notes:]

I first fell in love with Jenna Elfman in the late 90's watching Dharma & Greg. I remember wanting to be more like Dharma - carefree, confident, really tall. It's 20 years later, and I'm killing 2 out of the three :-). When I crossed paths with Jenna's work again recently, I re-crushed. I just love her attitude toward life, and I wanted to bring some of that to you. When we got together, we recorded our conversation where we talked all about marriage, kids, jobs, self-care and trying to make it all work. Join us...

In This Episode:

  • Jenna spills the secret to her successful 26-year relationship and the simple truths she learned about making her husband Bodhi happy 
  • How has Jenna kept her sanity, her confidence and her centeredness within the Hollywood culture?
  • Jenna's 6 pillars of self care, including her take on:
    • sleep
    • alcohol
    • vitamins. supplements
    • hormonal balance
    • movement
  • Jenna's struggle with Hashimoto's and what she's doing to manage it

Is Moderation Possible?

Ok, I struggle with this, I really do. To me, abstinence from some foods does seem so much easier than moderating my intake - especially with trigger foods like sugar, nut butters and other items on my list. But, sometimes my "food rules" send me spiraling into what today's guest calls the "What the Hell" effect. It looks something like this:

- "I'm hungry" or "I want something to eat" (there's a difference!)
- "I can't eat THAT, because it's not on my 'good' list"
- "I'll eat this, this and this instead."
- "Dammit, I still want THAT."
- I eat that.
- "I'm terrible. What a failure. I think I'll eat something since I'm already a total loss."

Have you ever been there? Jill Coleman has, and today she's telling us how she got off the merry-go-round of deprivation, food rules, cravings, binges and all the noise and found a place of balance.

You asked, I answered...get the show notes at

1. Fiber supplements: There are a lot on the market and most seem like they are full of chemicals. Do you know of any that are easily added to a smoothie or coffee and beneficial? [Submitted by Heidi]

2. Are we killing and denaturing our vegetables when we cook them? Raw foodies will say you're killing your food. I'm a huge fan of juicing and want to get the most out of my food as possible. [Submitted by Aileen]

3. Can you discuss how to eat healthy when other people bring unhealthy foods into the house? I do the grocery shopping, but that doesn't stop my husband from bringing in tempting foods that I don't want to eat. Plus there's all the candy the grandparents load my kids with every holiday except Columbus Day. I hide it in the kitchen cabinet (out of sight, out of mind - for them, not me). [Submitted by "Sara"]

4. How do you develop the patience with yourself to keep working hard if you know you will never see the end result? In the pool, in the classroom, in my job, the harder I work, the sooner I see results. It's a different story when it comes to being your best self. [Submitted by Erica]

Now send me YOUR questions. I love to hear from you:

Being Fearless is B.S. 

"For years I lived my life according to what (or whom) I thought could make me happy. Perfectionism, the need for control, and people pleasing ruled my life. And it wasn’t working out. The day I started living my life authentically, standing up for myself, speaking out about what I believed in without looking over my shoulder at who was talking about me and what they thought of me, was the day my life truly began and had immense meaning.

Today I make no apologies for who I am. I write about and talk about my own struggles with disordered eating, relationships, alcohol and all the other messy things that happen in real life." - Andrea Owen

What we talk about in this show:

•What drove Andrea to change/improve in the face of challenges that shut many people down?

•What is Andrea’s mission and purpose now?

•Managing our inner critic

•Control, isolation and perfectionism

•“Being Fearless is BS” – what is real  courage?

•"The way to gain confidence is by practicing courage" (read Andrea’s post here)

•Social media and the comparison trap

  • What is my story? What successes and failures led me to where I am right now?
  • Which episodes from 2015 are the most impactful for me?
  • What is my general philosophy on food, fitness and mindset? 
  • Where do I come down on intermittent fasting?
  • How do I achieve "work / life balance?" [spoiler alert: I don't]
