Show Notes

Holy wowsers!  In this mega juicy and bursting with totally useful information episode, I get to interview my fave podcast host, the fabulous Elle Russ.  Elle is a bestselling author of The Paleo Thyroid Solution, a Life/Health Coach, host of the Primal Blueprint podcast and is a course development consultant and Advisory Board Member for the Primal Health Coach Program (of which I am a graduate!!)

Elle was sooo generous with her time and this show is a must listen if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Weight gain or inability to shift those kilos/pounds
  • Lacking in energy even if you have had an early night
  • Brain fog, feeling flat or lack of motivation
  • Feeling cold all the time, especially hands and feet even when it’s not that cold
  • Menstrual problems, low sex drive, fertility issues, miscarriage

So that’s all of you right?  Elle says that there are an estimated 60% of us with undiagnosed thyroid issues.


Elle has a personal story to share and a Paleo Primal Solution that does not include suffering, willpower or feeling totally confused!  It definitely doesn’t involve eating less and moving more – thank goodness for that!

Tune in to find out what Elle Russ eats for breakfast, why Elle thinks I am a ‘complete mess’ and find out what Mark Sisson is really like!
