Finding hormone harmony with Emily de Luzy
Questions about your hormones and weight gain?  Today's podcast is with Emily de Luzy, owner and founder of FitQueen. I loved Emily's videos and message on LinkedIn, so I asked if she would share her story and experience on the pod! Although she is younger than our 'midlife' crowd, she faced menopausal symptoms in her 20's. Her story is one of the relationship with food, your body and hormones - at any age. Emily's FitQueen moto is 'Your Body, Your Hormones, Your Lifestyle'. To me, that's exactly the sort of conversation we should be having about a healthy body.  Weight and changing weight especially is a broader topic than 'eat less and move more'. Enjoy this episode - it was fun to do!Join the Magical Midlife Group on FacebookCome and comment and join the community on InstagramVisit the store for all your Midlife Resources!Please leave a review too!
