Happy August! The year is flying by! Here is edition #2 of our monthly dispatch!
Client Shout-Out- Melanie Montgomery!
We are so proud of Melanie and all the incredible progress she has made since she started working with us! Melanie has dialed in her nutrition, improved her quality of sleep, has been strength training with Bethany weekly, staying accountable with her own workouts, gets more steps in each day (thanks to her dog Boo Boo), and she is seeing impressive results each time we check her body composition on our InBody Scale! Melanie, it is so important to us that you know how much we love you and value you. You have earned every ounce of the vitality you feel!
Monthly Book Giveaway-
The first month of our book giveaway was a huge hit, so we are going to do it again! The first person to screenshot a review of our podcast Boundless Body Radio on Apple Podcasts will receive a FREE BOOK! This month we are giving away Why We Get Sick: The Hidden Epidemic at the Root of Most Chronic Disease - and How to Fight It by former podcast guest and world renowned insulin researcher Benjamin Bikman PhD!
Bethany’s Move of the Month!
“Your hips will not lie after trying these lateral hip releases! Learn how to create more length and glide in your lower body tissues with the lacrosse ball and foam roller. Important note- Always be aware of controlled breathing for nervous system regulation while doing self-myofascial release or stretching.”
Recipe of the Month-
We just cannot get enough tri-tip these days. It has been inexpensive locally, and the flavor is to die for! We have been using this recipe that we found, and it has not let us down yet!
Workout Program of the Month-
We are keeping things simple and enjoying the outdoors, so here is another workout that you can do with one or two kettlebells! We have hosted two kettlebell experts on Boundless Body Radio, Vincent Metzo, my former kettlebell instructor, and Mike Salemi, who recommends using a minimal amount of kettlebells when you first get started. That certainly helps keep the price down! Check out his valuable Kettlebell Selector Tool to choose the right ‘bell for you!
Favorite Podcast Episode of the Month-
As you know, we recommend and coach our clients with low-carbohydrate, ketogenic, and/or carnivore diets. We did not come to these practices easily or quickly, as most of the world is pushing harder and harder for a plant-based diet. We disagree strongly with the notion that plant-based diets will help human or planetary health, and it has taken many years for us to come to this conclusion.
Our favorite podcast of the month is a recent episode of the Utopihen Talk Podcast called “Vegetarian, Vegan, Carnivore, Oh My...". Podcast host Paul Meyers interviews our future guest James Leman (the_carnivorist on IG) about how a vegan diet literally nearly killed him in this emotional interview. This was just part one, and we look forward to the rest of this conversation in part two!
…And Finally, A Quote We Have Been Thinking About-
“My goal is not necessarily to conquer the world. My goal is to make a difference. And with the resources that I had, I was able to do that, at least in my part of the world. So, I think that's pretty okay.”
Dr. Evelyne Bourdua-Roy, on helping her patients with low-carbohydrate diets. Look for her episode to come soon on Boundless Body Radio, but since you are a subscriber to our newsletter, check out the early release here!
