50: "When Being Wonder Woman Isn't So Super" with Dana James, Nutrition Therapist & Author of 'The Archetype Diet'

Show of hands for my over-achieving, Type-A, “Wonder Women” out there who, despite doing everything “right”, still carry extra weight (especially in the middle.) Yeah, me too. Turns out, being a non-stop hustler can actually be damaging to more than just the scale. Dana James has spent the past 18 years studying the complex relationship between food, metabolic issues, and emotions and believes the missing link lies in addressing both the tangible and intangible – food and feelings; science and spirituality; conscious thought and subconscious thought. She’s the author of the book, “The Archetype Diet: Reclaim Your Self-Worth and Change the Shape of Your Body” which bottles these patterns into four archetypes of women. She explains why you store body fat in the places you do, what to eat, and how to crack the self-worth matrix that says my value as a woman is based on an external factor – looks, success, giving to others and being intuitive.
