In this week's episode, Ashleigh speaks with Dr. Stephanie Estima, a doctor of chiropractic and a health expert focusing on improving lifespan, health span, body composition, and optimal performance. They dive into topics like:

  • Optimizing diet and training for longevity and health
  • Optimizing hormones throughout the lifespan
  • The benefits of HRT for women
  • Sexism in the fitness industry and how it impacts both professionals and the greater community
  • Stephanie's favorite workouts and some of her best practices to live a healthy, vibrant life.

In this Q&A episode, Rachel and Ashleigh answer questions about:

  • How to hydrate properly, and how alcohol factors in
  • What to do when you've hit a body composition plateau
  • How to determine if you're actually eating as much (or more, or less) than you think you are - spoiler alert, most of us are not good at accuracy with this!
  • Ashleigh talks about her plan to get fitter by the end of the year and some of the obstacles she's facing (another spoiler alert, one of those obstacles is peanut butter cup trail mix)
  • And they have a discussion about "body positivity": what it is and what it's trying to do, when it fails us, and why "body neutrality" might be a more practical approach

All this and more! If you have any feedback, questions, or topic ideas please send them to musclescience4women@gmail.com

Shoutout to our show sponsor Active Stacks! They make high-quality beef protein isolate in two delicious flavors, chocolate and vanilla. They're made with cocoa and vanilla paste, not that unexplained "natural flavoring" you see listed everywhere, so it tastes better and mixes well into your protein shakes or baking. Beef protein is often easier to digest than whey protein for many people, and it's high in glycine, an amino acid that is the main building block for collagen and can help improve sleep and muscle building. Learn more at https://activestacks.com/discount/MSW10 and use the code MSW10 to save 10% on your purchase!

And thank you to sponsor BUBS Naturals! They offer the best quality collagen, coffee, powdered MCT and hydration products on the market, and they give 10% of their earnings to veteran-supporting charity. 

They've also recently launched some new products, including their Origin Blend coffee beans, so now they're a one-stop shop for your boosted caffeine needs :) Try their new brews and related products at bubsnaturals.com and get a full 20% off your order with the code MSW20.

In this episode, Ashleigh talks about the stress of sending her toddler to pre-school and her fitness plans for the rest of 2023; Rachel gives an update on her "mini cut" and they answer questions about how to eat out while on a diet. They also dive into the concept of a "weight set point": what it is, can you change it, and how your understanding of it may help or hinder your body composition goals or progress.

If you have any other questions you want to ask, send them to musclescience4women@gmail.com.
