Getting enough protein is essential to good health. But how do you know how much you need daily? And what do high-protein meals actually look like? In this episode, JJ answers these questions. She talks about why collagen is important and how to use it, along with how these peptides support muscle maintenance. She also provides her top tips and tools for losing belly fat.
When it comes to healthy aging, many women forget to build muscle. However, according to fitness physician Dr. Eric Fete, that component is critical. Muscle building helps you look and feel better, but it’s also for everything else related to your health, too, including metabolism.
In this episode, JJ touches on four topics. First, how do you choose fats that are good for you? JJ explains why you might already be getting healthy fat in your diet, and how to choose the healthiest sources. She also gives guidance on taking supplements while doing a clean fast, answers a community member’s question about controlling blood sugar and insulin, and shares how to choose a healthy nut butter (or how to easily make your own!).
Inflammation is a major threat to your health. In this episode, JJ discusses seven reasons inflammation makes fat loss nearly impossible, she reveals the one food you may be eating that can exacerbate your symptoms without you realizing it, and how you can reduce inflammation to feel better again. She also reveals the single most important thing you can do to make fat loss possible again in your body.
Transformational speaker and author Tricia Nelson joins JJ in today's podcast to talk about how to break free from the emotional eating trap. Tricia shares her own journey with food addiction, including how she lost 50 pounds and changed her life by identifying and healing the underlying causes of her emotional eating.
If you struggle with weight gain, JJ recommends a new way of using the scale to better maintain your weight loss. She also talks about some of her personal struggles with weight—yes, it happens to the best of us! You’ll also hear her thoughts on Dr. Hyman’s Pegan Diet, what it means to cross-train your diet, and why you want to use different diets to achieve specific goals, such as helping support leaky gut syndrome or breaking through your sugar addiction.

I stumbled upon JJ on one of the very first podcasts I listened to, on which she was a guest. I immediately fell in love with her story, her personality, and her lifestyle. She is the only podcast I subscribe to, and I listen to her while running, as I always find her motivational, inspiring, and just wonderful to listen to.
