Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
Do you ever feel like your body has turned against you?
I know I have.
Through hypothyroidism, hashimotos, acne, leaky gut, SIBO, h pylori, mold, candida, and hair loss, my own health journey has felt like a torturous game of wack-a-mole. As soon as one symptom drops off another pops up, and it's been hard not to resent my body for it.
But if there's one thing I've learned as a functional nutrition practitioner and patient it's this: symptoms, be they fatigue, brain fog,...
“Energizer bunny” “sunshine girl” “enthusiastic” “perky”.
These are the words my friends use to describe me these days. But that was NOT always the case.

I thought it was a life sentence. Something that would keep me stuck dealing with fatigue, stubborn weight, and hair loss for the rest of my life.
I’ve been a weight loss coach for over a decade. Which means I’ve shared my story of overcoming disordered eating. I’ve shared the story of healing my metabolism. I’ve shared the story of growing up dancing and battling with body image.
What I haven’t shared (at least not fully) is my 2-decade-long health journey.
For a long time I thought no one would be interested. I was told by business coaches of my past that...
Spring is in the air and along with it comes a whole lot of pollen leading to runny noses, itchy eyes, rashes, and sneezing... definitely not good prep for a hot girl summer.
And while I know it can be tempting to just hit those antihistamines all day every day, that comes with its own risks.
Long term antihistamine use may increase your risk of dementia because of its action on neurotransmitters, and it has been linked to issues like blurred vision, urinary retention, constipation, an...
If you know me, you know I am not a fan of deprivation for deprivation's sake when it comes to dieting.
I don't think we should be cutting out foods willy nilly, and I certainly don't think we should cut out entire macronutrients.
However the old adage is true: one person's superfood is another person's poison. And sometimes there are certain foods that cause a reaction in our body that prevents us from looking or feeling our best.
And the only way to truly know what those foods are is through an...

Eat less + Move More = Weight Loss!
That's what we've been told for decades, right??
Except that it isn't true... as a nation, over the past 20 years we have eaten less and moved more, and obesity is still on the rise.
Our lifestyles have been fueling metabolic dysfunction and simply dieting, counting calories, and hitting the treadmill aren't cutting it anymore.
And even if dieting does work, who wants to count calories and restrict their...
