Anyone Can Eat Clean with Mollie Lodin

In the cycle of dieting, weight loss, and weight gain, results can feel out of reach. When Mollie Lodin stumbled upon the Wake Up program, the simplicity of Jen’s advice got her started on a health (and life) transformation.

Struggling with weight since her teenage years, Mollie tried every diet on the market. By 2020, she was labeling herself a “gluten-free vegan” but when sharing her dietary restrictions, the response was, “then why are you big?” Although offended, Mollie took the criticism seriously and wondered why she was still far from her weight loss goals. Didn’t gluten-free and vegan mean healthy? 

Now 10 months into clean eating, Mollie’s lost weight and actually maintained it, impressed gym junkies, improved her sleep, and began a new career as a wellness coach and soon-to-be certified personal trainer. 

In this episode, Mollie talks with Jen about why clean eating made a difference while other fads failed her, the biggest improvements Mollie noticed after switching to clean foods, how she manages clean eating as a single mom, and why Mollie describes clean eating as a “priceless” discovery.

[07:26] - “What resonated with me the most was when you say, ‘if you can’t pronounce that word, your body doesn’t know how to break it down.’” ~ @mollielodin

[10:27] - “It’s so simple that I don’t even have to think about it. There’s not one thing I don’t eat, I just swap. And that’s what I love to tell people.” ~ @mollielodin

[24:26] - “If I can do it, anybody can do it. If I can do it at 300 pounds once in my life and as a single mom who doesn't get support, if I can figure out how to do it, anybody can do it.” ~ @mollielodin
