Today, I am grateful to have here with me, Chantel Ray. She runs a multi-million-dollar real estate company. Chantel is not a medical doctor or a nutritionist; she actually has a degree in mathematics.

Chantel Ray is the President and Founder of Chantel Ray Real Estate, a Virginia based company with 6 locations.

She is extremely active in her church and community, hosting weekly Bible studies in her home, speaking at events to support and inspire other local business owners, and partnering with local charities to help those in need. Chantel has spent the past ten years interviewing over 1000 women to crack the code to lasting weight loss. Her book is the result of these interviews, her countless hours spent studying the Bible on this topic, and her real life journey. She believes she has discovered the secret sauce to weight loss and can't wait to share it with you.

In this episode, Chantel Ray reveals her dieting journey and how she finally figured out the secret to weight loss. Chantel describes her FIRES Principle and explains that hara hachi bu means to stop eating when you’re 80% full. Plus, Chantel says to make sure that you are eating slow, appreciating your food, and being intentional. Stay tuned as Chantel dives into the correlation between fasting and your thyroid.
