Episode 79: Eli Rodhe


Description: On today’s show, Elle Russ and Eli Rohde talk about making the transition from sugar burner to fat burner. Once you adopt new habits and lifestyle behaviors, they’re often easier to maintain than you might have initially thought. But getting over the initial hurdles of making the transition can be a challenge. So on today’s show, Elle and Eli share their own personal experiences, and expertise, when it comes to navigating through the initial stages of going primal. They talk about motivation, willpower, and implementing practical tricks to make the process easy—so sticking to your new habits can become a reality.

They cover topics ranging from prepping for a transition, quality vs. quantity when it comes to food choices, curbing the temptation to indulge in too much of a good thing, and not letting perfectionism get in the way of attaining your goals.
