Welcome to the soon-to-be-renamed Crave Cast. We will shortly be called Her Rules Radio, so look for that coming soon. This weekend I gave a lecture at a conference here in NYC. I was talking about what cravings mean to the female athlete, and how to deal with it. I started off my talk by saying that we can't talk about any aspect of Women's Health if don't acknowledge that being a woman does not feel safe in our society. It's true, and until we begin to get our arms around all the reasons we don't feel safe, then it's useless to talk about Women's Health and Well-being. We live in a patriarchy and it affects us on a bio-chemical level. If you are struggling with any body issues, examine how you may have suffered or been the victim of abuse, and get to the root of the problem. Being a woman has a tremendous effect on your relationship with your food and your body. So, go over to and check out all the resources I have for you there. Today's guest is Briana Borten. Briana and her husband, Dr. Peter Borten wrote a book called, The Well Life. It comes out this week. They have brick and mortar spa businesses and they wrote a beautiful book about how to live a peaceful life. Stay tuned all the way to the end to get all the best tips and information.
