Cravings, Desire, Pleasure, and Your Body: Alex Jamieson and Jena La Flamme on Glimpse TV

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 2.46.47 PMOver the summer I got two amazing books from two amazing girlfriends, both on nourishing and loving our bodies.

I wanted to have both of these fine ladies on Glimpse TV because their books both opened my mind to a whole new way of relating to my body and food that I’d never considered before.

On a spontaneous trip to New York City I asked them if they’d be willing to come on Glimpse TV together as the first ever duo on my show.

What truly struck me about both of their enthusiastic responses to the idea was the distinct lack of competition present.

Both of these gorgeous women launched books on the same topic in the same month in the same city with many contacts in common.

And yet, they were so excited to share the spotlight with one another to make sure as many women as possible could hear the important messages that our bodies know what they need and it’s up to us to become their loving caretakers.

We covered a lot of territory in this rich conversation. Watch the episode to find out:

  • Why how we talk about other women has so much to do with our relationship with ourselves
  • How to turn jealousy into inspiration
  • How to use the fact that we’re animals to our advantage
  • The importance of pleasure when it comes to our bodies, food, and weight loss
  • How to use our cravings as our guides instead of our foes
  • Why how you feel is critical to your digestion
  • The consequences of not making space and time for pleasure
  • Why trying to control your body will never work long term
  • Why cookbooks and romance novels are keeping the publishing industry afloat

Watch this episode of Glimpse TV with Alexandra Jamieson and Jena La Flamme below.

If you’ve ever struggled with your weight, with cravings, with food, or with your relationships with other women, you won’t want to miss this conversation. You’ll walk away with a few critical tools that will ease your journey dramatically. They certainly have mine.

What you’re truly seeking is not on Google.

I was feeling a little dried-up this fall. Part of it was seasonal, I’m sure, and part of it was finally downshifting after more than a year of full-on production (book launch, speaking tour, wedding and The Freedom Immersion.) With the exhale came the feeling that I’d lost touch with my creative essence. My joie…Continue Reading

We all just want to feel good. Here’s how.

This morning the first thing I did after making some eggs was to sit down with Mike and go to Danielle LaPorte’s new website. I wanted to see what she had created. I wanted to feel what it felt like. I wanted to celebrate this new iteration. It felt like Christmas. A few years ago Danielle…Continue Reading

Unwrinkle your panties.

I first met Regena Thomashauer, also known as Mama Gena, when my mom sent me under cover to scope her out at her School of Womanly Arts. I sat in her living room with thirty other women feeling like I was being let in on the biggest, best, most well-kept secret EVER: that the key…Continue Reading

I never thought I would do this…

A meeting that didn’t quite go as planned. Last February I sat across from my mom’s literary agent, Ned Leavitt, at lunch. I had scheduled the lunch to ask him questions about the publishing world as I was beginning to get a hankering to write a book. And that’s what we talked about…for the most…Continue Reading
