the daily helping podcast Oct 28, 2018

Celebrity nutrition and fitness expert JJ Virgin teaches clients how to lose weight and master their mindset so they can lead bigger, better lives.

Ms. Virgin is a four-time NY Times bestselling author whose work usually focuses on nutrition and fitness but recently took a turn for the personal: her newest release, Warrior Mom, chronicles the strength, positivity, and growth that JJ experienced after her son Grant was the victim of a brutal hit-and-run accident.


JJ hosts the popular JJ Virgin Lifestyle Show podcast and regularly writes for Huffington Post, Rodale Wellness, Mind Body Green, and other major blogs and magazines.

In addition to her work with nutrition and fitness, JJ is also a business coach and founded the premier health entrepreneur event and community, The Mindshare Summit.

JJ’s published works include: Miracle Mindset, The Virgin Diet, The Sugar Impact Diet, The Virgin Diet Cookbook, The Sugar Impact Diet Cookbook, One Pot Meals, JJ Virgin’s Easy, Low-Sugar, Allergy-Free Smoothies, Six Weeks to Sleeveless and Sexy, and Warrior Mom: 7 Secrets to Bold, Brave Resilience. She also co-authored the immensely popular The Bulletproof Diet: Lose up to a Pound a Day, Reclaim Energy and Focus, Upgrade Your Life with Dave Asprey.


“I realized: the only way I’m gonna be able to pull this off, and handle this level of stress, is to put my health and self-care before everything else.”


But how can we make the time to follow through on those important health changes?

  • “If you don’t have the time, find it.”
  • Look at it like a series of habit shifts (don’t try to change too many things at once).
  • Hire a coach. Commit with your time and your wallet.
  • Surround yourself with a supportive community of people who are positive, focused, and healthy.

The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway


So often, we’ll look at challenging situations and wish they weren’t happening, or wish they were easier, not realizing that it is that journey and how you show up that is going to define who you are and make you an even better version of yourself. Don’t wish it was easier; make yourself stronger. You are stronger than you think.
