Aleen Kuperman and Samantha Fishbein are the brilliant and hilarious minds behind Betches, the wildly popular blog and viral social media empire that covers everything from politics to celebrities to health and wellness. They are the co-hosts of Diet Starts Tomorrow, a health-focused podcast that has featured some of the top names in wellness (including yours truly).

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • How Samantha and Aleen went from writing a private blog to running a thriving media empire with millions of followers and subscribers.

  • The three health secrets they've learned over dozens of interviews with best-selling authors and industry experts.

  • Why you're more likely to feel creative at home versus in the office.

  • The truth about healthy-labeled products like chickpea pasta.

  • How much salt you should really be using in your cooking.

  • And much more!

This podcast is sponsored by my friends at Four Sigmatic (check out my interview with founder Tero Isokauppila in episode 12), who make a wide range of coffees, elixirs, and teas using mushrooms like chaga, reishi, lion's mane, and more. Go to to save 15 percent off of everything!
