Raise your hand if you've found yourself foregoing your morning coffee for a cup of hot lemon water or a giant glass of celery juice.
Or if you've ever kept that cup of joe, but added spoonfuls of coconut oil to it.
Or if you've put yourself through the gag-inducing shot of apple cider vinegar before your meals...
All in the name of dropping a few stubborn pounds.
The question is, do these diet tricks belong in the giant book of weight loss hoaxes? Or is there scientific merit to any of these...
Have you ever heard of the body type diet or the metabolic type diet?
Or maybe you've heard the terms 'ectomorphs', 'endomorphs', or 'mesomorphs' thrown around on social media or in your local gym.
If so, you may have some questions like one of our awesome podcast listeners did, such as: what's the actual science behind it? And is it a useful thing to know and rely on in a better health journey?
So the truth is, in the 40's a psychologist by the name of Doctor William Sheldon came up with the 3...
I can't count how many times in my career I've uttered the words, "No one is fat because of eating bananas."
I actually remember the first time I said it.
I had a client who ate virtually every meal out, who regularly drank 4-5 artificially sweetened ice teas at one sitting, and who was just getting into a workout routine.
They had a solid 60 pounds to lose and when I told them to eat a banana to fuel their workout their response was, "Don't bananas have a lot of sugar??"
Honestly, it hurt my...
Can you imagine a world where weight loss happens without counting calories? Where food no longer consumes your thoughts? Where treats happen without guilt? Where you feel in control of your cravings? Where you don't have to pick between your goal weight and your favorite foods? Where becoming your healthiest, fittest self is actually enjoyable?
Believe it or not, all of that can be your reality. The key to claiming it as such? Intuitive eating.
What is intuitive eating? According to Healthline,...
I eat clean, count my calories, workout, and the weight still isn't coming off. What more could I possible do?

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...
Who wants to literally burn more fat while they sleep? If you’re shaking your hand high in the sky right now going ‘me me me me me!’ you’re going to want to listen to this episode. It will save you from turning your weight loss journey into an unnecessary uphill battle.
If you know me you know how much I hate diet culture. We’re berated with advice that’ll help us ‘lose 10 pounds in 5 days’, but what’s left out is the fact that those very tips are slowing our...
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...
Last week, we talked all about what mental shifts you need to make to get off the yoyo diet train.
But if you've been on that sucker for a while and you've spent years cutting calories, cutting food groups, and increasing your workouts, chances are pretty good your metabolism is all kinds of jacked up.
I see it all the time with new clients, they come to me saying things like, "I only eat 1200 calories per day and workout hard 7 days per week, but I can't lose an ounce."
Yup, that's extreme diets at...
