Breaking through diet myths with Jenn Trepeck

Debunking Diet Myths

Maybe a fairer question... how's your relationship with your weight?

Chances are, if you identify as woman, you have a complicated relationship with your weight regardless of the number on the scale and the reflection in the mirror.

And, metrics like BMI and numbers on a scale do nothing to help clear up any confusion.  I've struggled with weight and body image (one of the main reasons I make skincare) and Jenn Trepeck is pretty much ninja level diet expert... one who's figured out that diets don't work.

In today's episode, Jenn shares the 5 fat factors or rather she breaks through some of the myths around dieting, numbers on a scale, and how to really achieve a "healthy" weight... and what exactly that means anyways.

Who's Jenn? 

Jenn Trepeck is described as a “force of nature" in the wellness space.

A Ross School of Business graduate from the University of Michigan, she's an Optimal Health Coach, podcaster and business consultant who founded Better Life Now LLC while working full time in hedge funds.

After over a decade of coaching clients, Jenn started Salad with a Side of Fries Podcast to help pay it forward and reach a larger audience to teach the nutrition education we are all supposed to know but no one ever taught us.

Jenn implements revenue generating wellness programs in doctors' offices, salons and spas to further expand impact and help change the state of healthcare as a Certified Transitions Lifestyle Coach and Consultant with nutraMetrix Custom Health Solutions.

When not hunkered-down at home during a pandemic, she's typically working out at Physique57, discovering hidden gem restaurants in NYC or traveling to spend time with friends and family.

Brandy Searcy founder Rain Organica

About the Author

Brandy's a formulation scientist and self-proclaimed health geek who loves hiking, gardening, bird-watching, and body boarding. 

Her struggle with acne during her teens and 20s led to a holistic and healthy approach to skincare, embracing skin as an organ to be loved and cared for rather than a canvas to wage war on. 

Since 2008, she's been developing all-in-one products for a simple routine at home, & Rain Organica started when her backpacking friends asked for a portable skincare routine to keep their skin healthy & happy on and off the trails.

You can try Rain Organica for yourself with The Essentials Kit, a complete skincare routine in just 3 steps.
