One of the best podcast I’ve ever come across!

“Mary and Dr. Tanya are always touching on topics that most people don’t talk about. This particular episode really hit home, so much so that I made sure hubby and I watched it. PCOS has been with me all my life, but to Dr. Tanya’s point, I never knew about it until I was trying to conceive and needed some help (even when having ovarian cysts removed five years before, it was never mentioned! Mary, Dr. Tanya, please keep these episodes coming! Every woman needs to hear these messages.”
– Carol Schneider

Thank you for creating this podcast!

“The very first episode helped me realize to start thinking differently because I do spend all my time taking care of everyone else. It is time to start taking care of me. I loved watching the chemistry between Dr. Tanya Wylde and Mary Wong. You provide real value and offer a more human touch as you spontaneously go off script adding in stories. This can help a lot of people and I can’t wait to watch Embrace You First every week. Thank you!”

I’m so glad I found this!

“This is exactly the kind of perspective I’ve been looking for. Looking forward to more tips on healthy eating and mindful living. Thank you!”
– Theresa Lemieux

I especially appreciate the discussion on the social pressures around eating at family/social gatherings

“A common challenge I have is in turning down certain foods without feeling guilty.”
– Amy Tam

Great podcast, just like a great meal

“Full of knowledge but not too heavy. Deep but still entertaining. And very fresh and juicy. I was fortunate to get the help of Dr Tanya Wylde, with her great advices I modified the way I eat, and perceive food. I lost 7kg, I have much more endurance during my surgery days and as 48 years old I am running faster than I used to run 5 years ago. I still feast on rare occasions with my colleagues, but I am doing it in a much better way. So grateful.”
– Guy Golani

Best PCOS podcast!!!

“I love love love this podcast! I find everything they say so helpful and awesome to listen to because it’s concise and fun! It’s easy to listen to literally any time of the day!”
– Kamya Mehra

New way of thinking about self care

“Care for yourself first: it’s not selfish, it’s common sense. Mothers, fathers, adult kids looking after aging parents, people with demanding jobs…we are all feeling a little drained these days. In our family, we are all of these things, and that’s why this podcast has been such a relief to discover.
We hear so much about how to hack your way to your best life, self-care can feel like one more chore you’re not getting right. Mary Wong and Tanya Wylde put good health and good spirits in a whole new approach. If you don’t take care of yourself, how can you care for anybody else?
Once I let the guilt go and listened to them, I found their approach was exactly in alignment with mine: a preference for natural foods, healthy habits, practical and easy things to make me feel great. I’m happier for it! And so is everyone around me. I’m really glad to have found this, and plan to listen to every episode.”
