Cravings, Desire, Pleasure, and Your Body: Alex Jamieson and Jena La Flamme on Glimpse TV

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 2.46.47 PMOver the summer I got two amazing books from two amazing girlfriends, both on nourishing and loving our bodies.

I wanted to have both of these fine ladies on Glimpse TV because their books both opened my mind to a whole new way of relating to my body and food that I’d never considered before.

On a spontaneous trip to New York City I asked them if they’d be willing to come on Glimpse TV together as the first ever duo on my show.

What truly struck me about both of their enthusiastic responses to the idea was the distinct lack of competition present.

Both of these gorgeous women launched books on the same topic in the same month in the same city with many contacts in common.

And yet, they were so excited to share the spotlight with one another to make sure as many women as possible could hear the important messages that our bodies know what they need and it’s up to us to become their loving caretakers.

We covered a lot of territory in this rich conversation. Watch the episode to find out:

  • Why how we talk about other women has so much to do with our relationship with ourselves
  • How to turn jealousy into inspiration
  • How to use the fact that we’re animals to our advantage
  • The importance of pleasure when it comes to our bodies, food, and weight loss
  • How to use our cravings as our guides instead of our foes
  • Why how you feel is critical to your digestion
  • The consequences of not making space and time for pleasure
  • Why trying to control your body will never work long term
  • Why cookbooks and romance novels are keeping the publishing industry afloat

Watch this episode of Glimpse TV with Alexandra Jamieson and Jena La Flamme below.

If you’ve ever struggled with your weight, with cravings, with food, or with your relationships with other women, you won’t want to miss this conversation. You’ll walk away with a few critical tools that will ease your journey dramatically. They certainly have mine.

I came downstairs to make my Bulletproof Coffee (only decaf these days), my new morning ritual, and Mike looked up at me in his adorable scruffiness as he said, “Want to hear the super exciting news now or later?” “Now!” I replied enthusiastically. “All 21 days of the Money Love Challenge emails went out this…

Herd’s the Word

As human beings we are herd creatures. We crave connection, community, and a sense of belonging. Being part of a herd helps us feel heard (I couldn’t help myself) and helps us hear ourselves better too. Part of this is biological: back in the day when there were saber-toothed tigers after us our survival depended…
