Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
This week, I hopped on a call with a woman who I'm guessing you may relate to. She was frustrated by a sudden weight gain after having maintained her weight for 7 years. And it seemed no matter how hard she tried, nothing was working to get it back off.
She went from fasting for 18 hours per day to fasting 21 hours per day (and felt like shit while not dropping an ounce). She was working out hard 6 days per week. She was only eating 500-600 calories per day. She felt like it was hopeless, like she...
No matter what I do I can't lose weight.
Why am I such a failure?
My body hates me.
I hate my body.
This is impossible.
Do any of these sound familiar to you? If they do, you may be putting up a block to your weight loss goals more powerful than any cheat day or skipped workout.
Think that sounds woo woo af? It's not. It's actually well documented that our thoughts can affect our physiology, sometimes instantaneously.
For example, people with multiple personality disorders...
We were all told as kids to 'eat your fruits and veggies'. But how much is enough? What counts as a serving? Why do we need so many? And how do we fit them all in??
These are the questions I'll be answering in this week's episode of the Life Unleashed Podcast!
8 Fist-Sized Servings (approximately 3/4 cup each).
A few weeks ago, my friend Doug reached out to me wondering why he actually got more shredded while eating more carbs during quarantine.
This may sound totally counterintuitive, especially in the age of keto where 'experts' would have you believe that low carb is the best way to go if your primary goal is weight loss.
But as per usual, the weight loss industry loves highlighting the quick fix side of these trends, while ignoring the long term implications on your health and weight...
Have you been thinking about trying to lose weight, attempting to tone up, or trying your hand at becoming the fittest version of yourself? But...
You're nervous. You've been burned in the past, you don't want to fail again, you're afraid of the amount of work it'll take, and you aren't sure if you'll be able to maintain your results if you do finally hit your goal weight?
All I can say is, every successful client I have started exactly where you are right now. They had all the same fears, all...
Sugar. It can be such a source of joy, comfort, and celebration, while it can just as easily transform into an uncontrollable source of weight gain, shame spirals, and some rough bouts of acne and bloating (I know... hot).
And just like you, I've been there, walking that line between the good, the bad, and the ugly side of sugar.
But why is it so hard to walk that line? Why is it such a slippery slope? And is there room for sugar in a healthy, well-balance diet?
Last week, we talked all about what mental shifts you need to make to get off the yoyo diet train.
But if you've been on that sucker for a while and you've spent years cutting calories, cutting food groups, and increasing your workouts, chances are pretty good your metabolism is all kinds of jacked up.
I see it all the time with new clients, they come to me saying things like, "I only eat 1200 calories per day and workout hard 7 days per week, but I can't lose an ounce."
Yup, that's extreme diets at...
So you want to lose weight, you're ready to take your fitness goals off the back burner, and kick your butt into gear. And low and behold, like an answer to your prayers, you see an ad for the newest diet that promises you'll drop 20 pounds in your first month, and all you have to do is (fill in the blank).
You've been here before. Sometimes the fill in the blank is simple and straight forward, like cutting out all added sugar. Sometimes it's gross like only drinking a concoction of lemon and cayenne...
Have you ever experienced symptoms that you couldn't explain?
Has a doctor ever prescribed you medicine to mask your symptoms without really knowing the cause?
Have you ever had the joy of dealing with adult acne, eczema, psoriasis, diarrhea, fatigue, bloating, constipation, thyroid issues, autoimmune diseases, bloating, headaches, foggy headedness, PCOS, food sensitivities, diabetes, joint pain, and/or other inflammatory conditions?
Believe it or not, it could all be pointing back to your gut. Your ...
We've all been told the rule of weight loss is to burn more calories than you consume. And while there is a lot more complexity in how different food affects your body, your metabolism, your hormones, and your health (more on that in the 'eat less/move more' bonus episode after episode 33), the general premise is true.
But for those of us who don't have the time, energy, or desire to count every morsel that touches our lips, how do we ensure we're creating that deficit?
Here are 3 proven ways to...
