Every Friday I am going to feature a woman that I adore. They exude all the qualities of an Alpha Female and I want to dig into their lives to get some nuggets of knowledge to help us all live happier, healthier lives balancing life & work.
Definition of an Alpha Female
An Alpha Female is a powerful and assertive woman. Her confidence is due to being an intelligent and intellectual problem-solver. Being an Alpha Female is a State of Mind based on choosing ambition and being proud of it. She strives for a happy and healthy work/life harmony.
Type A Alpha Females often come across as strong willed and selfish. When we stay true to our authentic selves and stay true to our mission we shine. A true Alpha Female puts the needs of herself first without sacrificing her principles or dignity. She fills up her cup or gas tank first so that she has enough energy for her friends, family, and coworkers. She strives for synergy with the world around her. She wants a perfect work/life balance but knows that it requires being true to your priorities and what makes you happy. She is never complacent about striving for better and nurtures relationships with the people in her life.
Meet Dr. Sara Solomon!

Frustrated, Sara decided to hit the books and spent 2 years devising an evidence-based system (“Fat Loss Fast”) that restored her metabolic capacity and her passion for fitness. Sara knows first-hand the challenges of juggling a busy schedule with a healthy lifestyle, which is why her system focuses on endurable, maintainable, time-saving, and metabolism-boosting approaches for losing fat.

How are you an Alpha Female?
I go in the direction of my dreams. I practiced dentistry for 10 years and came to the realization I was living someone else’s dream. So I cultivated a life I love by launching my own online business in 2013.
Does work/life balance exist?
Every day of the week, I skip breakfast and lunch (I fast). I only consume calories at night. Did you know that fasting gives the body a chance to clean itself up on a cellular level (i.e. clear away damaged cell structures)? Research reveals this helps the body defend against bacteria and viruses. You can learn more about my approach to diet and fasting here.
I always train in the morning (fasted). I don’t eat all day, which improves my work productivity. I don’t make unrealistic daily to-do lists. I reserve the evenings for eating and interacting with family and friends. I make it a habit to watch a short funny video on YouTube before bed. Laughter is the best medicine.
Being alive and healthy.
