Greg simplifies the weight loss journey, and makes it easy to stick with a program that leads to success, even for women who have tried everything or have never had success in the past. Many of those Greg works with see changes in their bodies in just a short time, without restrictive diets or counting calories. During this episode, we discuss how to stay motivated when trying to change our habits, the role community plays in success and why people are so drawn to challenges when it comes to creating successful change in their lives. Greg also shares real-life examples of women who have found success in a 28-day challenge that he facilitates. If you feel hopeless about managing your weight - this episode will give you a lifeline.

It’s a totally different phase in life that sometimes you feel like there’s no getting out of it. Menopause, however, is not just about disruption but also a time of opportunity and reinvention. Experiencing the reward of reinvention, however, takes conscious work and effort—or even a series of trial and errors. The good thing is that you don’t have to go through all of it alone! Support and help is available.
