Mar 2, 2020

In this episode, Justin talks to holistic health and weight loss coach, Ellie Rome, about:

  • [03.16] Her enthusiasm for Vedic meditation, an ancient technique that uses the repetition of a mantra to silence the internal chatter, still the mind and settle the body into a deeply healing and blissful state. She discusses the benefits of the practice and reveals how it has helped her to dissolve stress and release emotions.
  • [13.35] Her transition from chemical engineer to health and nutrition coach. As a former sugar addict and binge eater, who went on to develop a healthy relationship with food, Ellie has made it her mission to share her knowledge and assist others with their weight-loss journeys.
  • [22.26] Breaking bad eating habits. Ellie encourages people to change their eating habits by substituting healthy snacks for sweet treats. She explains that choosing sugar-free alternatives and establishing a regular pattern of healthy eating can change the neural pathways in the brain and lead to a more mindful approach to nutrition.
  • [27.36] Learning to stop using food as an emotional crutch. Ellie recognizes that, in times of stress, we often turn to food for comfort. She recommends taking up a hobby or participating in an activity we enjoy in order to distract our attention from food and improve our health and mental well-being.
  • [30.42] Ellie’s food choices for optimal health and energy. She suggests cutting out sugar and processed foods and adding more fibre and protein to our diets.
