Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
When it comes to nutrition I know there are countless voices out there, all with conflicting messages, all with 'science-backed' arguments. They all are very convincing and therefore confusing as hell.
It may leave you in analysis paralysis unsure of where to start.
It may be giving you major food fear since everyone is demonizing something.
Or it may just leave you wanting to throw your hands in the air and say 'fuck it, it's too confusing, I'm going to mess it up, so...
Do you ever want someone to just freaking tell you what to eat? What's good? What's bad? What's allowed? What's not?
I get it. That is the simplicity and clarity we need when we're new to any skill.
If we're just starting piano, we can't start with chords and using both hands at once. We have to learn note by note, pluck it out finger by finger.
But eventually, if we want to get good, we have to progress. We have to learn the more advanced skills, navigate the greater complexities, until eventually we...
99% of the women who come to my practice have tried every diet under the sun. They’ve tracked their food, cut carbs, timed their meals, and they are exhausted.
Exhausted from the trial and error, exhausted from getting their hopes dashed, exhausted from being unhappy in their skin.
That’s where I come in. To shed light on why their past attempts haven’t worked (hint: your body is not broken) and to pave a new path that puts an end to yo-yo dieting for good.
So if you’re wondering why the...
I'm going to be real with you... this is not the podcast episode I had planned for today.
Last week I wrote a fantastic guide on how to ramp up your immune system naturally as we head into fall and another covid wave.
However, when my co-host Gio and I went to record it this morning... poof! The guide was gone.
But we roll with the punches here and my girl Gio came to the rescue with a great idea while my tech guys tried to find my missing blog post.
You may have noticed that a couple of weeks...
When you hear the word starch, what do you think of? Pasta, bread, white rice? Weight gain? Blood sugar spikes?
Starch has gotten a bad rap, and in some instances for good reason. The starch in processed carbs breaks down into glucose and does spike blood sugar and contributes to diseases like diabetes and obesity.
But just like not all carbs are created equal, not all starch is created equal.
Resistant starch is starch that acts like soluble fiber in that it isn't digested in the small intestine by...
Do you ever feel out of control around food? You know you should watch your portions and eat mindfully, but you can't help it. One spoonful after another, long after your body is satisfied, you continue to shovel.
Maybe it starts with your dinner. Then you want something crunchy and salty so you mow through a bag of chips. But then you need something sweet to balance it out so you plow through a sleeve of Oreos. And before you know it, you're flopped on the couch, groaning in discomfort with your jeans...
Do you ever feel like your body is legitimately fighting against your weight loss efforts? Like every pound is a struggle to lose, and even if you do hit your goal weight, just a slight deviation in your diet or a week off of working out sends the scale soaring back up?
You're not crazy, what you're experiencing is weight set point.
What is weight set point?
Your body has an intrinsic weight that it likes to hover around (plus or minus a few pounds) that is determined at birth. But over the course of years of...
Reverse dieting is exactly what it sounds like. Instead of decreasing your calories like you would on a diet, you slowly and strategically increase calories over time with the goal of increasing your metabolism and fat-burning potential.
During a reverse diet you will often shift away from cardio and emphasize weight training as a way to tell your body to partition the excess calories towards building lean muscle instead of storing it as fat.
I eat clean, count my calories, workout, and the weight still isn't coming off. What more could I possible do?
I think my metabolism is messed up, is there anything I can do to fix it?
Every time I try to lose weight I self sabotage. How do I make myself stop?!
How badly does alcohol inhibit my weight loss?
What's the best diet to lose weight?
Last month I held a live training in my private Facebook group all about how to finally break through when those extra, unwanted pounds seem to be holding on for...
Between diet culture constantly telling us to eat less and move more, trends like intermittent fasting limiting the hours we can eat, and trying to include more and more plants in our diet, it can be shockingly hard to get ENOUGH calories in to lose weight.
Believe me, I know that sounds bananas and borderline like an oxymoron, but it's true. You can eat TOO LITTLE, slow down your metabolism, and bring your weight loss to a standstill.
Truth be told, the clients that come to me struggling with...
