At 31 going on 32 and with two young children, Hannah has had an incredible journey. She also has the most amazing red hair. It’s so beautiful!
Hannah’s story begins when she had her first child in 2019, then experienced a horrible injury, and couldn’t walk for 3 months! She tried to regain strength and mobility but then got pregnant again. Throughout her second pregnancy, she had hip pain, and knee pain, and experienced severe insomnia.
So, she eventually bought @korimeloy course as well...
Libby has been on the podcast a few times before. I would definitely recommend going back and listening to those episodes (and go follow her on Instagram!).

In this episode, Libby and I discuss:
➡️Why thinking of things as an end game isn’t helpful
➡️Having data points in lifestyle to check on health and...
Craig, my cofounder of Nustrength and cohost, and I are back! In this episode, we are digging into everything about sleep and offering up tips to get a good night's sleep.
So many women that come into our program struggle with it. When I was on those bloody restrictive diets, I also struggled with sleep. Then, over the past two years, when we were trying to conceive, I had so much trouble sleeping. I was so stressed, and I think the stress and emotional stuff are often underrecognized as a...
We have so many amazing coaches and friends as part of our company and mission, so I wanted to do a coaches series where we talk to our coaches and hear their stories.
Mel is an amazing coach and friend. I’ve known her almost as long as I’ve known Craig. She has such an incredible and inspiring story. Mel has also had heaps of success with so many women who have had a lot of weight to lose. Mel has a client who's lost 46 kgs and kept it off.
And Mel is SO different from the person she was...
I get a lot of questions from women asking, “Kitty, will I have to track strictly forever? What happens when you get to a place where you’re happy with your body weight and body composition?”

We had Ash and Sarah on the podcast a while back, so it was about time we had a catch-up! They now have a new course, a regenerative farm, and a wedding barn. These girls have been busy. It’s amazing what they are doing with their regenerative farm. If you don’t already follow them, definitely do!

This is the third time we’ve had Anna on the podcast! Anna has had the most incredible physical, emotional, and mental transformation over the last four years in our program. She started when she was 40, and she’s 44 years old now. Throughout the last four years, she’s been through a divorce, moved house 8 times and became a single mum with 4 kids. But she always perseveres!
I think Anna’s journey just goes to show that if you want something enough, you’ll make it happen. She is just...
I used to train under-fueled and undernourished. I’d drink black coffee in the morning, then go and train fasted. This is a bad strategy if you want to optimise your body composition. After meeting Craig, I realised when I actually ate before training, my performance was so much better. So, I wanted to discuss the importance of pre-workout, intra-workout and post-workout nutrition.
In this episode, Craig and I chat about:
➡️Why carbs and protein are important for pre and post...
The world’s strongest bodybuilder is back! We got so much great feedback from our first podcast with big Stan that I thought I’d get him back on to discuss losing weight in a healthy and sustainable way.
Stan is the creator of The Vertical Diet, which is a similar nutrition approach that we recommend in our program. He is a wealth of knowledge and just an all round good guy! In this episode, Stan and I chat about:
➡️Why losing weight involves a caloric deficit
➡️The importance of strength...
Craig and I wanted to record a really practical episode about food prep, so here it is! Most of the women in our program who have success, do food prep week-in and week-out. It just makes things super easy! So, in this episode, Craig and I discuss:

Loren just has the coolest name ever! And if you haven’t listened to our previous podcast together about anemia and iron, go back and give that one a listen. You can also follow her on Instagram, she’s just a wealth of knowledge. So, I wanted to pick her brain about minerals and estrogen dominance and how it all relates to weight loss.
In this episode, Loren and I chat about:
➡️What are minerals?
➡️How minerals support the metabolism

If you’ve got kids, listen to this one with headphones on. There’s a little swearing😂
Jordan is so authentic and real....he educates in a entertaining way. If you don't follow him you should.
He actually just wrote a book called Eat It. He’s also really strong - at one point, he could deadlift 4x his body weight! He was also Gary V's trainer for 3 years.
I thought it’d be fun to chat with Jordan and break down some of the most popular fitness industry myths! In this episode, Jordan and I...
In this episode, I’m joined by my co-founder and co-host Craig.
I was sick for a week, so I sounded a bit nasally in this episode 🤣
The majority of the women I speak to say "Kitty I want a toned and athletic body".
There's so much confusion out there around how you should be training to achieve this.
So we thought we'd jump on and chat about what it actually takes when it comes to training to change your body.
So, in this episode, Craig and I chat about:
➡️Why proper execution is so...
If you don't follow Leo, follow him....he post's the funniest things. His posts are super entertaining and educational.
Leo is a trainer in LA, and I love his content so much that I thought it’d be fun to talk about dairy with him and all the misconceptions around it. Back in the day, I thought I was being healthy by cutting dairy from my diet....I also went through a stage where I made my own almond milk 🤣 what a bloody ball ache that was!
In this episode, Leo and I discuss:
I often get asked the question, “How many kilos am I going to lose in the next 16 weeks?” They wonder how long it's going to take to get the results they want.
The unfortunate truth? We can’t tell you this because it depends on sooo many different things. So, in this episode, Craig and I discuss:
➡️What factors go into body recomposition and fat loss
➡️What else determines your success
➡️Why it’s not about an end result
➡️Where your focus should be
➡️How what you’re doing is a reflection...
So I've had Amy on the podcast a few times now, if you haven't listened to her previous episodes check them out.
We were supposed to discuss mobility this episode, but we changed our minds last minute.
Something I've noticed when I chat with women who are thinking about joining our programs is that they almost feel ashamed that they want to look better!
In this episode, Amy and I chat about:
➡️The Eating Disorder Continuum
➡️A functioning body and what this means
➡️Stress and body...
In this podcast, we’re talking about booze! If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know I used to drink a lot, I was a loose cannon 🤣 For a long time I used it to have fun and as a coping mechanism.
I still love alcohol but I don't love how excessive drinking makes me feel.
I don’t drink much anymore. I just can’t handle the hangover and lack of sleep. I’ll have a few cocktails when we go out with friends or over holidays, but no more crazy binges!
So, the question: Can you drink...
Katie is 45 years old and is a public servant working in Western Sydney. She has been obsessed with food her whole life. As an adult, she was either following a diet or binge eating. And she (like me) used to think sugar was poison!
But today, Katie has found newfound freedom. She’s lost 22.5 kgs, doesn’t think of food 24-7, and no longer experiences PMS. She’s also managed to combat previous thyroid issues through this pro-metabolic way of eating, and hasn’t touched alcohol in 12 months!...
A lot of our clients ask us how to approach their training and nutrition while on holidays. I used to be in this mentality where I would restrict leading up to a holiday, then I would use the holiday as a binge, free-for-all. I’d drink a heap of alcohol every day and eat sh*t food. Then, after my holidays, I’d go right back to the restrictive diet.
I don’t do that anymore, and I definitely didn’t do that on Craig and I’s most recent holiday, so we thought this would be a good one to hop on...
Matt needs no introduction! We always get great feedback when we have him on the podcast. The last time, Matt and I chatted about vitamin C. This time we’re talking everything magnesium.

➡️The best types of magnesium (and why!)
➡️The benefits of magnesium
➡️How often you should take...
Now that we decided on no kids, I’m getting serious about my training again and setting some new training and body composition goals. When I first met Craig and he taught me how to lift I fell in love with powerlifting. I competed in a few comps and loved it but since then I haven't had any serious goals, I've just trained.
After much back and forth with Craig I decided to be a bodybuilder for 12 months 🤣 Craig loves his body building.
In this episode, we chat about:
➡️My current goals,...
Jim has been on the podcast a couple of times. Craig and I are friends with him and his wife Peri, they're awesome people. It’s hard to describe what Jim does but I always say he has a sixth sense when feeling people’s pain.
He’s helped Craig and me with so many injuries and niggles; it’s really incredible the work he does!
Now that I'm back into training full swing and doing a 5 day split I've been seeing Jim every 4-6 weeks for his athletes tune up.
In this episode, we chat...
