And we’re back with this season’s first episode of What Your Mama Didn’t Tell You, the monthly show where my sister Dawn and I zero in on a topic and chat. This week we discuss dieting, diet misconceptions, body image, and how to take control of your self-image.


Meet Dawn Calvinisti

Most people who know Dawn realize she’s a jack of all trades. She’s had careers in graphics, cooking, music, administration and homeopathy. Her current career combines a bit of each of these as she leads a team of entrepreneurs in building their own natural health careers and at the same time teaches families how to take control of their health.

When she met Marcello she was absolutely positive she would never, ever, ever want to live in Guatemala. Surprise! After a 2 week visit she knew there was something changing in her heart and the rest happened in stages.

Dawn loves chocolate. Like in an unhealthy way, but tries her best to control it. Chocolate almond ice cream bars are her favourite. But any combo of chocolate, nuts and caramel will do.

She is loving her role of leading others to live a life of freedom whether in health or in finances.

They’re pretty boring, and maybe even messy, but if you would like to read the unedited show transcripts they’re available for you
