If you know me, you know I am always trying to get to the underbelly of weight gain.

Do you ever feel like weight loss should not be so hard?
I think the world of fad diets with all its contradictory advice has made it seem impossible to make the 'right' food choices.
Hell, if you listened to all the weight loss advice out there you wouldn't be able to eat sugar, meat, veggies, fruit, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, carbs, or fat... sooooo breatharian?
All of this confusing info has also made us hyper-focus on the things that really don't make...
Last week I posted a video on Instagram explaining why the health of our gut is essential on our weight loss journey (especially when you feel like you’ve already tried everything).
To recap, your gut microbiome…

I thought I had my shit together.
I mean honestly... I had stopped dating assholes, I was a generally pretty happy person, I had a thriving business, and a good family.
So why the hell did I need to see a therapist?
Because somewhere along the way I realized fear was running almost every part of my life.
Sure on the outside everything seemed fine, even to me!
But upon closer inspection (which let's face it, the pandemic kind of forced us into such reflection), I realized that I...
I'm sure you've heard all the buzz in the past few years about the wonders of intermittent fasting.
You've probably heard appealing promises like...

It's fantastic for weight loss!
But you can't help but wonder... is it just another passing fad or a new essential in your nutrition arsenal? Is it right for you? What are the pros and cons? Which schedule is the best? Does it actually work for weight loss?
We're going to answer all that and more in...
When you hear the word starch, what do you think of? Pasta, bread, white rice? Weight gain? Blood sugar spikes?

This is probably the most embarrassing story I could tell you, and believe me I never thought I would tell a soul, let alone put it out into the world in a podcast episode. But I really think we need to talk about it.
Warning: if you're squeamish (especially about period stories), skip to the 'advice' section of the blog.
It was about a month ago, it was day one of my cycle and I was hurting... bad. I've had cramps that have made me yack before, but nothing came close to what I was experiencing...
How do I describe Destinee? She is loud, loving, and absolutely beautiful.
But her strength and beauty doesn't come from an easy life. Her strength comes from the battles she's faced. Her beauty is in her battle scars.
She is a warrior and I am so excited to share her story of losing almost 100 pounds in the last 3 years without dieting.
