Main Points From Today’s Episode

1. When it comes to weight loss, your body is a chemistry lab, not a bank account. That’s why you need to focus on balancing your hormones instead of on cutting calories.

2. Toxins are all around us, and if your body can't get rid of them right away, it stores excess toxins in your fat. JJ shares her top recommendations for supporting your body's detoxification pathways.

3. The satiety trifecta includes fiber, healthy fats, and clean, lean protein. Fiber and protein slow down stomach emptying, which suppresses a key hunger hormone, while fat triggers the release of satiety signals in your small intestine to tell your brain that you’re full.
