Alex Jamieson

Co-Creator of Super Size Me + Functional Nutrition Coach

Today’s guest is a nutrition and life coach who’s also the co-creator of the 2004 Oscar-nominated documentary that shook up the fast food nation, Super Size Me.

Alexandra or “Alex” Jamieson is also a best-selling author of a #1 book on Amazon, out earlier this year entitled, “Women, Food and Desire: Embrace Your Cravings, Make Peace with Food, Reclaim Your Body.”  She has been featured in top news outlets and publications nationwide including The TODAY Show, Oprah, Dr. Oz, CNN among countless others. Alex also delivers inspirational speeches and workshops around the globe and was even named Elle Magazine‘s Coach for January 2015. She also started her own podcast, The Crave Cast, which debuted #1 on iTunes in the Alternative Health category. On the show she talks about new insights into cravings and desires and how to achieve happiness and well-being that we all strive for.

Three takeaways from our interview:

  1. How our personal weight attributes to self-worth which attributes to net worth.
  2. How a personal investment in herself yielded a 600% return.
  3. That time she was on Oprah and why it was probably the worst professional day for Oprah.

November is all about giving back at So Money!
I’ve partnered with Joe Saul-Sehy, host of the Stacking Benjamins podcast to host a charity fundraiser/competition the entire month. He and I have each selected a personal charity and our goal is to raise tons of money with your help. 
The So Money charity is THON, a dance marathon and the largest student-run philanthropy held at Pennsylvania State University (my alma mater!) that helps raise money and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. You can donate here.
The Stacking Benjamins charity is Texas 4000, a 4,000 mile bike ride that University of Texas students take to raise money for cancer research and cancer related causes. You can donate here.
The podcast that receives the MOST money for its charity will win the chance to write the introduction to the other person’s podcast in January (buhahah!) 
We’ll keep you updated throughout the month!
