Transform Your Body - Transform Your Business - Transform Your Life
You may know, I don't generally hand out 'DO NOT EAT' lists to my clients. I feel like that usually sets us up for feeling deprived at least, or it sets us up for a full on binge fest and self-loathing spiral at worst.
However, it is hard to argue that some foods (and beverages) just do not fit in very well with a weight loss plan. (Just ask my client, 'Carol', down below.)
So today I am bringing you a list of the worst foods for weight loss... with this caveat: if...
Listen to the podcast:
Hey friend, so I'm aware, as of late, I've been heavy into personal development, productivity, and business development for newbie entrepreneurs.
However, I want you to know I have not left my fitness folks behind. Which is why I'm doing a special series of fitness blogs.
I'm calling it, The 5 Days of Fitness. (I love alliterations, don't you?)
So, for the next few posts I'll be answering some...

Who here is still tired even if they get a full night’s sleep?
Who NEEDS coffee in the morning to function?
Who craves sweets in the afternoon as your energy slumps?
Believe me, I used to be right there with you...
And unfortunately, we live in a world where low energy is considered a "normal" part of adulthood, and we only ever attempt to fix the symptoms, not the root cause.
I can think of no better example than myself. I lived with chronic...
Sugar cravings. The two words that can ignite fear in the fiercest of dieters, the fitness warriors, the health fanatics.
Sugar cravings. The destroyer of weight loss goals, the seemingly insurmountable desire for sweetness, the ever present frustration and saboteur of all things healthy.
Sugar cravings. Are they possible to truly beat? Or will we face this foe forever?
Let's find out...
I'm sure you've heard the study that explains how sugar is just as, if not more addictive than cocaine. Which means the battle to...
"I always have this poochy belly..."
"I hate my thick thighs..."
"By butt is too big..."
"I wish my arms looked more defined..."
We all have that one area of our body that drives us nuts and, of course, it always seems like the most stubborn body part to tone, tighten, or taunt into submission.
Why? Why is there such a thing as a "trouble zone?" And is there anything to be done about it?
Well, while there are a million DVD's and workout programs out there titled things like Chiseled Abs, Thigh Slimmer, and Burn Off That...
I can't tell you how many times I've been asked the question, "What's the 'best' diet??"
And I'm willing to bet, in the midst of the hailstorm of information out there, you've asked yourself that very same question.
I too have been in that spot, tearing my hair out trying to decipher truth from fiction as I hear a million different things from a million different experts.
Which is why I wanted to write today's post, to help you decipher the diet that is best for you. Because, as I've told you before, what works for one person...
When stress is high, time is low, and even thinking about what to put together on a plate is panic inducing, I totally understand why fast food seems like the most obvious option. It's convenient, it's cheap, and well... it's fast.
But you and I both know that if living a healthy lifestyle, weight loss, and/or increased energy are the goals, fast food is not the way to get there.
But that doesn't change the fact that sometimes (or more often than not) even 20 or 30 minutes in the kitchen preparing a meal is too much...
Tell me, have you ever had this experience...
You're working hard towards your goals, you are following program after program, diet after diet, and you are following them to an absolute T. You are doing everything right, following every rule and guideline, and the scale just isn't budging and it is driving you mad. Meanwhile, you look around and see your friend Susan quitting her nightly cookie ritual and she drops 20 pounds in 10 days.
Super frustrating, I know. But allow me to let you in on a little secret... even the...
If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I moved to a new apartment this week. And I am SO lucky that my mom lives just down the street, because after a long day of moving and unpacking, she made me this INCREDIBLE Chipotle Beef & Avocado Bowl that was so freaking flavorful it made me do my happy food dance (yes, it's a real thing, and yes it is completely involuntary).
This recipe came from 40aprons.com and is Whole30 approved (no gluten, dairy, soy, nuts, etc.) so naturally, I'm super excited to add it to...
The kids are headed back to school and that means the packed lunch parade is back in town! Which is why in today's blog I wanted to give you my favorite super quick, easy, and nutritious sack lunch recipes that I know both you and your kids will look forward to!
Nut-butter & Blueberry Sandwich
A twist on the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, this meal is packed with fiber, healthy fat, protein, and complex carbs that will keep your kid's tummy full and mind sharp all day. Minus the sugar crash that comes with the...
