60: Does Loving Your Body Make You Lazy & Complacent?

SCREENSHOT THIS EPISODE ON YOUR INSTAGRAM STORY & TAG ME! @healthnutjulie


Does loving your body how it is make you lazy and complacent?

Short answer: No.

A lot of people worry that if they accept their body and love it how it is now, that they’ll never be motivated to make progress. Why change something if you’re happy with it, right?

But that’s only the first layer. You CAN love your body and want to improve certain aspects of it — from your strength, to your endurance, to even your body composition.

In fact, the OOONLY way we’re able to make sustainable change (in an enjoyable way) is to appreciate the journey *before* you arrive at the destination.

Contrary: if you try to force yourself to (lose weight, get stronger, show up every day in the gym, only eat salads) because you hate yourself, you’re going to have a miserable time trying to keep up the motivation to continue.

But if you operate from a place of LOVE for your body versus hate/shame/guilt, you start to treat yourself differently — and therefore, the results come more easily (and often faster).

Because you love your body, you feed it nourishing foods without under or over eating.


Because you love your body, you make time to move on a daily basis because it feels good.


Because you love your body, you want to challenge it to become stronger, faster, more conditioned. You set performance related goals because you know by focusing on those, changes in your body are a byproduct of challenging yourself.


Because you love your body, you speak kindly to it — understanding that the more love you give yourself, the better you’ll feel. And the better you feel about yourself, the more motivated you’ll be to continue treating yourself well.


If you’ve ever tried to operate from a place of hate to change your body, you knooow it doesn’t work. why not try out being kind to yourself, LOVING all up on yoself, and appreciating where you are *right this very moment* while working hard for what you want... because you KNOW you deserve it ♥️

58: Being Intentional & Unapologetic About FEELING GOOD

SCREENSHOT THIS EPISODE ON YOUR INSTAGRAM STORY & TAG ME! @healthnutjulie


This mindset shift was HUGE for me: it’s not about the goal itself, it’s about how we want to FEEL as a result of achieving that goal. I’m realizing more and more that my main goal is to feel good, and I’m working every day to do more things that bring happiness and joy into my life.

Here are a few topics we cover:

  • Thinking of goals in terms of how they’re going to make us FEEL when we achieve them

  • Waking up and asking “what’s going to make me feel good today?” and honouring that every single day

  • Little actions that build trust and confidence in ourselves

  • Ways to sprinkle more fun & joy into mundane tasks

  • Manifesting your dream partner, career or body by thinking in terms of how you want to FEEL when you have it

  • And so much more!

57: Having a Bad Body Image Day? You Need to Hear This!

SCREENSHOT THIS EPISODE ON YOUR INSTAGRAM STORY & TAG ME! @healthnutjulie


This podcast was originally inspired by a post I wrote for Instagram, which I’ll attach below:

59064566_10158435841418266_3398736440278908928_n.jpg

One thing I always remind myself when I’m having a sh*t body image day:

We are SO MUCH SMALLER than the rest of the world.

When we’re wrapped up in worry, fear and guilt about ourselves: “ugh I hate how I look” “I’m so bloated” “I shouldn’t have eaten that” “why can’t I be as fit as Susan on Instagram”... we lose sight of our place in the world. 🌍

Life is about GIVING, yet when we’re wrapped up in how we look/feel, we have no energy to give to others.

Life is about EXPLORING, yet we don’t allow ourselves to explore or experience joy because we’re running on treadmills trying to “make up for” what we ate over the weekend.

I always use this analogy: imagine you’re a flashlight. Flashlights can only illuminate one thing at a time, right? 🔦 When you’re worried about how your body looks and micromanaging every bite of food you eat, the flashlight is illuminating YOU and magnifying your fears and anxieties.

Instead: how can you turn your flashlight away from you and focus on someone/something else? How can you serve someone today? How can you be the light in someone else’s life? What can you do to remind yourself that we’re only on this earth for a finite amount of time — time that shouldn’t be spent wasted worrying about how we’re going to look in a bathing suit at the beach this weekend. 

If you’re feeling anxious today, get outside. Remind yourself that you’re just a tiny little human in a great big universe — a universe that needs YOU to get out of your own way so that you can be, do and have allll the amazing things you desire. It’s your birthright, boo boo <3

56: The "Little" Details You're Probably Overlooking & Why They're Keeping You Stuck

SCREENSHOT THIS EPISODE ON YOUR INSTAGRAM STORY & TAG ME! @healthnutjulie


The "little things" are actually the BIG things - not only in our health, but our relationships, career and every aspect of our lives. These are everyday habits (that you're probably overlooking right now!) that help bridge the gap between where you are and you want to be.

Here’s some of what we cover in this episode:

  • Why the little things actually make ALL the difference in the success of your health, relationships, business and every aspect of your life

  • The morning and evening habits that set me up for success

  • How “little” decisions every single day help us bridge the gap between where we are and where we want to be

  • SELF INTEGRITY and why that matters

  • Projecting into the future so you can act based off of what you want the MOST, not what’s going to bring you temporary satisfaction

  • And more!

55: Navigating Judgment About Your Healthy Lifestyle | How to STAND IN YOUR POWER

SCREENSHOT THIS EPISODE ON YOUR INSTAGRAM STORY & TAG ME! @healthnutjulie


t's happened to all of us: we're eating healthy and loving how we feel, when a family member or friend makes a judgmental comment. "Why aren't you eating dessert?!" "Are you on a diet or something?" and a myriad of other judgments that make us question our decision to live a healthier lifestyle.

This episode is all about how to politely stand in your power, deciding what's worth indulging in, and being 1000% confident in your nutrition choices overall.

Here’s some of what we cover:

  • How to politely say no when you don’t feel like indulging

  • How to stand in your power and be confident in your healthy choices

  • Navigating being a health conscious person in social situations

  • Choosing what you want to indulge in by using discernment and asking, “Does eating this add to/enhance the experience of my life?”

  • Keeping in mind long-term goals vs. short-term satisfaction (i.e. what you want the MOST for yourself vs. what you want right now)

  • Getting clear about what your goals are: having a strong & powerful WHY

  • Not casting judgment onto others for their food choices, even if they’re different from something you’d choose for yourself

  • It’s not your responsibility to control other people’s opinions about you/your choices

  • Adding a “plus one” to your meals

  • SO MUCH MORE!

54: Two Mantras That 10X My Productivity and Happiness

SCREENSHOT THIS EPISODE ON YOUR INSTAGRAM STORY & TAG ME! @healthnutjulie


In life, it’s so easy to get wrapped up in anticipating what can go wrong. It’s like even when things are going really well, we’re subconsciously always looking forward to what problems lie ahead.

My life completely changed when I adopted the mantra, “Things are great right now, and I allow them to get even better.”

And, as we chat about in this podcast, “let it be easy” is the mantra that’s helped me escape the hustle mentality and finally chill the F out (which in turn has allowed me to be more productive and happier overall).

Let me know if you start using these and if they help you become a healthier, happier human!

52: Finding the MIDDLE GROUND | Transitioning From Dieting to Intuitive Eating

SCREENSHOT THIS EPISODE ON YOUR INSTAGRAM STORY & TAG ME! @healthnutjulie


In this podcast, we chat alllll about how I coach people through finding the MIDDLE GROUND between food obsession and intuitive eating. When I tried to jump straight from dieting to intuitive eating, it failed MISERABLY - which is why I'm here to give you my top tips to transition into a more sustainable way of living!

Here are the main points we cover:

  • Transitioning from constant dieting to intuitive eating — the steps to take to move in that direction without changing everything at once

  • How to stop using food as a way to cope with emotions // dealing with emotions in ways that don’t involve food

  • Establishing the difference between PHYSICAL and EMOTIONAL hunger

  • Changing habits and breaking habit pattern cycles

  • Doing a lifestyle audit to find out where you’re reinforcing the self-limiting belief of “I’m not good enough”

  • Unfollowing people on social media that don’t make you feel like the best version of you

  • Giving yourself permission to clear mental space and stop obsessing over food

  • Operating the middle ground between dieting and intuitive eating, so that you can still be a health-conscious person (without becoming obsessive about it)

  • My top tips that help me live a life FREE from the drama and anxiety surrounding food, but still create healthy habits and show up as the healthiest version of myself every single day

  • My history with dieting and how long it took me to discover what worked for me personally

  • Eating intuitively with light structure to look and feel your best

  • How you can still be a health conscious person while indulging occasionally without feeling guilty

  • Having an abundance v. scarcity mindset surrounding food (and in life)

  • You’re a GROWN ASS WOMAN who can have a cookie if she wants to have a cookie!

  • Being discerning and how to choose what you actually WANT to indulge in vs. just choosing what’s available

  • Using food as a way to enhance life experiences with people you love

  • Not settling for food that doesn’t light you up and bring you joy

My grandma always told me, “PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE, JULIE.”

But let’s be real: we live in an instant gratification society. We want what we want, and we want it NOW. And sometimes when we’re in pain, we want a way to help relieve the pain immediately.

Along with doing the big-picture work to lay the foundation of developing a healthy relationship with food and our bodies, these are two things I practice regularly when I find myself wrapped up in obsessing over food, or feeling down about my body.

These are simple steps I practice almost daily that have CHANGED THE GAME in my confidence and relationship to food & my body.

SCREENSHOT THIS EPISODE ON YOUR INSTAGRAM STORY & TAG ME! @healthnutjulie

You guys already know — I’m OBSESSED with all things goal setting, planning and organization. For so many years of my life, I did it in the wrong way (yes, there is a wrong way!)

I wasted so much time setting “resolutions,” which I honestly forgot about in February and never followed through with. This led to a ton of disappointment, and feeling like I was never making any forward progress — which in turn, discouraged me from ever setting goals because I didn’t trust myself to actually stick with them.

I’m SO PUMPED to share what has been SUPER EFFECTIVE in my goal setting world!! Here’s what we cover in this episode:

  • How to clarify what you actually want & ditch what you don’t using the purge & prune method

  • Breaking down goals into monthly, weekly, and daily habits to make sure you’re on track

  • Writing a letter from the December 31, 2019 version of yourself to get clear about what you want to bring into your life this year

  • Setting the tone for the year with words/phrases that are meaningful to you

  • SO MUCH MORE

Sending you so much love, determination, positivity, and LEVELIN UP VIBES for 2019!
