Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
In my early years of hypothyroidism, before I was even aware I had Hashimoto’s, I hated my body. I despised the little ring of fat around my tummy, my soft arms, and the stretch marks starting to form on my inner thighs.
But I’m no victim, I wasn’t going to just stand there and let my thyroid dictate what I looked like. So I got to work. 2-a-day workouts were my norm, combining strength and cardio to burn off every bit of fat I could. I treated carbs like they were the enemy, waiting for me to...
My obsession with diet, exercise, and my body weight started at a very early age. I remember devouring nutrition and fitness articles in middle school. Following my mom’s workout DVDs before I was 13 years old. Analyzing the small layer of fat around my midsection in the mirrors of my dance studio at 11 years old.
And yet, I would still spend the next 10 years living in a body I hated.
No matter how obsessed I got about what exercises I should do or what diet I should follow, I just couldn’t stick with a...
I’m going to be straight with you. When my family and I vacation, it has historically been 100% food-centered. Everything we do is planned around what restaurants we’re going to hit, what delectable meals we’re going to enjoy, what desserts we’ll indulge in.
And when we aren’t eating, we’re really just killing time until the next meal comes around.
Can you relate?
And here’s the thing, as your coach, I’m not about to tell you to skip the NY pizza for a salad. Or to...
It's a Japanese term for 'continuous improvement' and it relies on small, incremental, consistent changes that lead to potentially massive improvement and transformation.
Both research and my own experience shows, this is by far the MOST effective strategy for long term weight loss.
How can it help with weight loss?
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?
