238 episodes - English - Latest episode: 1 day ago - ★★★★★ - 76 ratings

It’s time to get off the diet roller coaster. So many successful women are thriving in most areas of their lives - family, love, business, leadership - but continue to struggle with their weight. They feel hopeless and frustrated with diets and false promises.

There is a different way - one that doesn’t involve dieting, endless products, or counting every calorie.

Your host Shannan Christiansen is a Fortune 100 Executive and Weight Loss Coach. Five years ago she decided she’d never diet again, and found a way to lose eighty pounds while transforming her relationship with her body.

Each week, we’ll explore the thoughts and feelings that contribute to the struggles many successful women have with weight. If you’re tired of the typical approach to losing weight and are ready to try something new, you’re in the right place.
