You've heard me talk about the book Chasing Cupcakes, well today I HAVE THE AUTHOR and she does not disappoint. Elizabeth Benten just has this non-nonsense way of explaining things that is like "Tough Love" with a layer of icing to make it a little sweeter (but still have you saying, "Oh yeah, that makes sense). 

We talk about:

Dealing with childhood obesity

Finding trustworthy information (or should you)

Dealing with your past (and how to move past it)

How she found the persistence to lose 150 lbs.

Dave's Weigh In

I'm struggling to find time to exercise and lying to myself that picking up moving boxes (keeps me active) is the same as exercise. It's not the same thing. Consequently, I'm up to 227 from 225.

Elizabeth Benten

Elizabeth Benton was depressed, deeply in debt, and obese. As a nutrition expert and educator who binged on junk food every time she put gas in her car, she felt like a fraud and a failure. Desperate to start truly living her life, she decided to believe in her potential rather than her past. She lost 150 pounds, paid off $130,000, and remains debt-free as a successful entrepreneur.

Today, Elizabeth is the owner of Primal Potential. Through her platform of podcasts, coaching, and live events, she has fueled her deepest struggles into a burning passion to help people create transformations and live more fulfilled lives.
