Destroy All Your Crazy Rules About What to Eat – Podcast Episode 63

Christmas, huh? It’s been a couple of weeks of chocolate piled high in the living room, and gorgeous treats spread out in the kitchen. You didn’t know whether to abstain and feel miserable, or dive in and feel guilty. Sucks, right? But what if I could transform your whole way of looking at food?

I used to have a very unhealthy attitude towards food, established (as most of these things are) when I was a child. For years, I was scared of getting fat. Terrified. But now I’m so much more relaxed about food, able to indulge when I want, and shred when I need to. So what triggered this change? How did I do it? Listen in to find out.

    Wow! This is my 2nd podcast that I listened from Kim and I just wonder where have you been Kim…. or why have I just found you now! Perhaps tonight subject hits me more than the other but I managed to laugh and cry at the same time…. I listened to you as walking my dog on tonight frosty evening and don’t know where the hour disappeared! I love the rambling… you still kept the structure! You have the knowledge and experience and I am just so happy that you deciding to share it! Love it!

    I absolutely love Kim’s podcasts. Instead of doing Netflix marathons over the Christmas break, I found myself listening to many of Kim’s episodes instead. These episodes are so informative and I really respect her tough love approach. She tells it like it is…she tells you what you need to hear in order to achieve your goals. I found this especially so in this latest episode. Kim talks about using ethics vs. rules to stay consistent in training and diet. I had a major epiphany when listening to this as to why I have not followed through with goals I set up for myself and it all goes back to a particular fear that I have. Now that I am aware of this, I can do something about it. Thank you Kim for sharing your knowledge.

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      Yes! My philosophy on ethics versus rules has helped so many of the women in my communities. Honored that you enjoyed it, and hoping you continue to tune in! xo

    Another excellent podcast. Your honest and your ability to get to the bottom of things is an excellent gift you have. I appreciate all your hard work and your willingness to allow us to see inside.

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      Aww, thank you so much for your kind words! It really does make everything worth it for me..xoxo

  5. Damita says:

    Wow, incredible job Kim! I thoroughly enjoyed the latter portion of fear vs ethics…it’s as if you were describing me to a “T.” I learned about 15 years ago that fear, a terrible emotion, was robbing me of my quality of life. After much perseverance, I was able to overcome, and thankfully now I’m on other side. It’s as if my life is currently on cruise control or auto-pilot. This podcast inspired me all the more. Thanks, Kim.

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      Love that you were able to see the effects fear was having on your life! I truly appreciate you, thank you so much for listening, there is more to come for sure! xoxo

  6. Darlene Jansma says:

    I love your vulnerability it’s quite refreshing and could you please be more vulnerable with how you are after your training videos as I believe that will help us understand that we all go through pain together

  7. Anna Coronado says:

    Thank you for the straight forward talk. Really enjoyed it! Love that you are real and down to earth! I’m doing this for me for so many reasons.
    I’m new to all this and looking forward to being stronger, feeling and looking better for myself. ❤

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

    OMG Kim! You have literally just described my life in this episode! (#63) I was listening whilst meal prepping for Butt Camp which starts tomorrow (11th January 2021) and it all makes so much sense. Thank you so much for sharing ❤️ I love listening to your podcasts…..they are so brutally honest – no BS and are incredibly motivating. I’m working through the back catalogue and continue to be inspired daily. Thank you Kim.

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      First of all welcome to butt camp beautiful! Great job on getting yourself ready and collecting the knowledge, that tells me you’ll do an incredible job! xoxo

    Omg thank you for keeping it real, oh by the way, I’m the same about liver, it’s vile, my husband loves it but i even hate the feel of it so i do it as a treat ( which i can tell you is not very often ?) & yes the yoyo dieting but to be fair, i stuck with the 12 day shred & got fabulous results, but of course xmas came & the twins decided to appear again jel bel & jel buns, anyway not going to beat myself up as now i know i can do it, thank fuck, thank you for keeping it real, being honest & no bullshit, you have helped me regain trust in diet coaches again ( sorry couldn’t think of another description) as all ive listened to for years was bullshit, ??

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

    I just can’t thank you enough for being so open and honest. This podcast blew my mind. It brought so bad memories from my childhood that I didn’t realise actually were having consequences nowadays. Not only I’ve experienced the same issues with food and my mother forcing me eating something that I hated, but she also added the fact that she was aggressive , physical and verbally. She used to tell me I was rubbish and useless, so for many many years I believed that was a fact. And I did not deserve any good, any happiness. I was literally crying after listening this post, but tiers of happiness. I am working on myself, for myself and only because I need to come first for the first time in my life. I am not putting my five children aside. They need a healthier mum, and I need to be stronger from inside out if I want to be there for them, but mostly for me. I’m only 51, halfway through, right?! Let’s get this party started!! Thanks Kim, see you at the finishing line!!

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      First of all, I want to send you my love! I’m truly sorry you have had to endure such hardships, children are truly so special and deserve nothing but love and care. It sounds like you have come out of the other side of that, and you will be a shining example to your kids I have no doubt! I look forward to watching your evolution of self..xoxo Thank you so much for sharing I know how difficult that can be!

  11. Christine Yaun says:

    LOVED this! This is the 1st podcast I have listened to, and I will definitely be making these part of my routine. Very inspiring. I loved your “ramble” lol. I loved your stories. I can relate to a lot of what you said. I am doing the 8 week Butt Camp, which started yesterday. I am super excited!!! Thanks for all your motivation and for this program. While I know this isn’t going to be easy, I am so ready for this challenge. I feel this is going to help me with ALL aspects of my life. ??

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      Welcome to my Podcast! I’m so glad that I could inspire you! Looking forward to watching you kick ass in Butt Camp, can’t wait to see your before and after photos, good luck in the competition!

  12. Lisa says:

    I was in utter awe and amazement as i ran and listened to your podcast as the recipient of that post on your group. This is why Kim is a multimillionaire business owner, because your clients matter to you! This is why you made it snd why so many others fail; because you are authentic, real, and you deeply care about us your clients. I am so proud to have invested in your programs and will continue to do so, this only shows why you are so successful in what you do.

    Thank you so very much for helping me, Kim, in becoming my best and everything I want to be and achieve. This meant the world to me! I cannot stop raving about you to all my circle!

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      Awww, I’m so glad I could help! It’s important to me to keep an eye on my communities and always deliver what they need! I am honored that you are a part of those communities, and thank you for your kind words my love. I look forward to watching your journey! xoxo

  13. Sandra says:

    Awesome podcast today Kim, thank you so much.. I love listening to you, love your honesty and words of wisdom… today’s podcase resonated with me completely (I even made notes)!. It’s a timely message for me.. thank you x

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      Yes! I cannot tell you how happy that makes me, we need to unite as women and stop depriving ourselves in order to reach our goals! Thank you for tuning in xoxo

  14. Leanne Bobee says:

    Loved this episode!! I am not sure what my real issues are but I can admit, I love when things are planned out for me and I don’t have to think about them. I have to plan the rest of my life Ruth kids, dog and husband, that I just love when I can just follow along!

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      It takes some exploration to find out what the underlying issue is! Yet, having someone take out the guesswork is so helpful especially when you’re shredding! Life is definitely busy enough, keep up the great work! xoxoxo


    Kim, Thank you so much for this podcast. All of this totally resonated with me. From you sharing your fear from childhood, the liver episode, all the way to your morning habit of grabbing your “fat”. Like you, I was forced to sit at the table in what felt like hours, in front of a plate of liver and onions at about 5-years-old. I can still smell and taste the grossness. I never realized that this was probably a HUGE factor in my future. (“You must Always do what is good for your or there will be a downside!”) This must have led me while growing up to be the “chubby” kid, the “fat” friend. Which led to all my insecurities into adulthood. I had gotten so big for my 5′ 3″ frame when I finally decided I needed to do something. Hence my habit of Every morning, to this day, of grabbing my stomach fat. It’s like my gauge for the day, I guess?
    But now, listening to this, I understand that I’m not alone. I’ll be able to work on my fear (fears) and start achieving my goals. Ethics or Rules. I need to work on this. No more making decisions on Fear.
    Thank you for being “Real”!!

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      ?? This is amazing revelations and feedback, thank you so much for sharing! Let’s change the stories that you tell yourself for sure, you’re definitely not alone at all! Acknowledge the fear and where it comes from, accept that it was a part of who you were, but it doesn’t need to be a part of who you are going forward! xoxoxo

  16. Christine Davis says:

    This podcast was eye-opening. Unfortunately I’m not sure I have any ethics I think all of my decisions are fear-based lol it definitely gives me something to work on thank you Kim!
    However I can’t figure out how to paste a screenshot of the episode.

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! We all have ethics love, sometimes we just need to uncover what they are. Internal personal work can be difficult, but it’s also very rewarding. if you need any technical help, definitely reach out to our support through chat on our website. xoxo

  17. Liz says:

    Hi there! I listened to this podcast this morning and it really resonated with me. I was a skinny kid but really filled out when puberty hit. My dad always told me that guys don’t like fat broads. Not very supportive, huh? Well, bulimia helped for about 25 years, but that’s not very healthy so I don’t do that anymore. I’ve come to love my body because it is truly a miracle of design and it can do so much! I’m so glad that I found TSV because you are honest with lots of love and encouragement for all of us to be the best we can and want to be.

    • The Sculpted Vegan says:

      Awww, love! I’m very sorry you dealt with so much growing up, and I’m glad to hear you’re taking back your power! Honored that you’re in our community! xoxo
