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,...
In the realm of natural remedies, castor oil has long been praised for its therapeutic properties and health benefits. Derived from the seeds of the castor oil plant (Ricinus communis), it's been used for centuries to treat a wide range of ailments and promote overall well-being.
I'll be honest, there are certain health practices that I've tended to glaze over as a practitioner and castor oil packs have fallen into that category for a long time.
That is until I recently discovered I have...
I'm going to start this episode with one of my most embarrassing stories (if you're squeamish or don't like period talk, go ahead and bail now).
It was the first day of my cycle. Always the heaviest. Always the most painful.
Some days I can push through with some aspirin and a hot water bottle, but not on days like this. On days like this, I can't even keep aspirin down long enough for it to do anything.
The only thing that can help me now is a hot bath. But in this kind of pain...
Do you ever just wish you could have a little coach in your pocket, answering any nutrition or fitness questions that come up to help keep you on track??
Well... welcome to Kat's Coaching Corner!
A few weeks ago, Tanya (the influencer I work with) and I did a Q&A on her page and ya'll loved it! And so the Coaching Corner was born.
Each week I'll be posting a questions sticker on my Instagram stories to help clarify and support you on whatever journey you may be on.
Then I'll be...
Sugar alternatives. They seem like a good idea... Some boast they don't raise your blood sugar. Many have zero calories. Sounds like the perfect weight loss ingredient, right?
Well, the truth is... it depends.
Because just like not all carbs are created equal, not all sugar alternatives are created equal. And while some are perfectly safe to enjoy in small amounts, others should be avoided like the plague.
So here are some things I want you to keep in mind before we dive...
Picture this: you're in your 40's and suddenly you're experiencing things you've never had to deal with before. You're getting hot when it's 62 degrees outside, your husband's chewing is suddenly making you irrationally angry, you're starting to see a tire forming around your midsection despite your daily barre class, and sleep comes in inconsistent waves that are driving you mad.
Yup, you've hit perimenopause and now you want to know what to do to slow down the clock (if not turn it back...
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...
I can't begin to tell you how many clients come to me post-keto, sick and tired of following such a restrictive diet, looking for a more balanced, sustainable way to lose weight, but unable to shake the fear of carbs that keto instilled in them.
What I find food fear truly stems from is either a lack of information, or misinformation spread about a particular food (and keto has mastered the art of misinformation).
So let's clear some things up around how carbs actually affect the...
