53: Lisa Consiglio Ryan on clean eating and loving your body

Our episode this week is filled with wonderful tips from nutrition coach and author Lisa Consiglio Ryan. From the tender age of 8, Lisa struggled with an unhealthy relationship with food, compounded by her family’s penchant for fast food. By her late 20’s, she’d tried every diet in the book, and was severely restricting what she ate. The resulting health conditions propelled her to look into alternative therapies, and her holistic journey towards a healthier life began. She’s completely changed her relationship with food, and one of her inspiring mottos is “Treat yourself like you’re sacred”.
Lisa now helps thousands of women cleanse and detox their bodies thanks to her Renewal Ten Day Detox Programs, which have featured in Fitness Mag, Tiny Buddha, Fox News, Mind Body Green, as well as Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Life. Her year-long program Clean & Sexy is a 4 times a year cleanse and includes clean eating plans and group calls. It connects people from all over the world, enabling them to support each other and stay on track. She advocates eating real, nutritious, healing foods — it isn’t about restriction! Lisa also runs a juice shop, where she offers clients 3 and 5 day juice cleanses. She’s recently published a fantastic book “Go Clean, Sexy You”, a back-to-basics manual packed with everything a newbie might need to start their journey to a glowing, healthier self.
In this tip-packed podcast, Lisa shares her advice on the anti-inflammatory diet, the seven substances to avoid when you start cleansing, and the life-enhancing 80-20 rule. Find out about Lisa’s three tips for clean eating, the importance of trusting your body, and how to make beautiful salad jars. You really don’t want to miss this amazing episode!
