But honestly, in my 7 years of experience as a trainer, those have not been the true reasons for stalled (or never started) weight loss.
In this post, I'm going to outline the biggest underlying culprits preventing you from reaching your health and fitness goals, I'm going to give you some basic tools you can start using today to begin making...

If you follow me on Instagram, you may recognize this video about the heavy metal detox smoothie I just discovered from Medical Medium, Anthony William.
But I wanted to come on the blog today and expand a bit on the importance of detoxing, specifically from heavy metals.
5 Reasons to Detox from Heavy Metals
1. Viruses and bacteria feed on heavy metals.
I don't think I need to explain why this is bad. We want to support our body in fighting these unwanted invaders, not feed them a gourmet meal.
2. They put a huge burden on...
"I always have this poochy belly..."
"I hate my thick thighs..."
"By butt is too big..."
"I wish my arms looked more defined..."
We all have that one area of our body that drives us nuts and, of course, it always seems like the most stubborn body part to tone, tighten, or taunt into submission.
Why? Why is there such a thing as a "trouble zone?" And is there anything to be done about it?

I can't tell you how many times I've been asked the question, "What's the 'best' diet??"
And I'm willing to bet, in the midst of the hailstorm of information out there, you've asked yourself that very same question.
I too have been in that spot, tearing my hair out trying to decipher truth from fiction as I hear a million different things from a million different experts.
Which is why I wanted to write today's post, to help you decipher the diet that is best for you. Because, as I've told you before, what works for one person...

As the busiest travel day of the year approaches, I know staying on track to reach your weight loss goals can pose a challenge. It feels like you have less control of your food, your schedule, and let's be honest, your will power.

It seems the ever present assumption... as you get older, you get more run down, more tired, more stressed, and there's really not much you can do about it. It's called "adulting" right?
