Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
Calorie counting is outdated weight loss advice.
I said what I said.
Not because you don’t need a calorie deficit to lose weight, you most definitely do.
But here’s the problem with trying to count your calories (aside from the fact that it’s a pain in the ass):
As the pandemic winds down, you may be feeling like you're starting at square one with your health and fitness journey.
With excess stress, closed gyms, no consistent routine, the pantry 5 steps away at all times, and no one seeing us from the chest down, a lot of us struggled not to put weight on and say bye-bye to healthy habits.
So let's break it down, start from the beginning, and take it one step at a time using my S.T.R.O.N.G Method:
So few people take the time to...
Do you ever feel like your body is legitimately fighting against your weight loss efforts? Like every pound is a struggle to lose, and even if you do hit your goal weight, just a slight deviation in your diet or a week off of working out sends the scale soaring back up?
You're not crazy, what you're experiencing is weight set point.
What is weight set point?
Your body has an intrinsic weight that it likes to hover around (plus or minus a few pounds) that is determined at birth. But over the course of years of...
Just a few days ago I ordered a Hopdoddy burger and truffle fries for lunch. A few years ago, here's how the rest of the day would've gone down:
Well, I already screwed up my diet for the day, might as well eat some ice cream too, I'll start back strong tomorrow...
But now that I had ice cream I want something salty (eats handfuls of chips out of the bag standing in the pantry looking at what other cheats I can have. Grabs the box of cookies and starts mowing through those too).
Hours later laying in bed: I'm such a...
‘Eat more whole foods’ has become one of those weight loss platitudes that tends to go in one ear and out the other. Why? Because that truism has been around since the beginning of time (you know, when we had no option BUT to eat whole foods).
But if you struggle with cravings, if you struggle with weight that won’t seem to come off, if you find yourself constantly thinking about food, ‘eat more whole foods’ may be the most important advice you could employ to turn the...
Have you ever started on fitness journey, fully committed, maybe even saw results, and then life happened and knocked you off course? Maybe you got a promotion, moved, got in a relationship, or got out of a relationship, and suddenly you look up and realize you’ve had take out every night this week or you haven’t done a single workout. And you just sort of throw up your hands in defeat.
Do you find yourself constantly pulled in a million directions? Your to-do list is endless, people constantly need...
We all have what I call ‘sprint seasons’ in our life where it doesn’t matter how good we are with time management, our days are just utterly packed.
And during those times it can feel like the ONLY option is to completely let go of the reigns on our healthy habits. That’s usually when we start to skip meals, hit the drive through, or shovel a handful of goldfish crackers down our throats and call it ‘lunch’.
But losing weight and keeping it off can’t be about only...
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...
This one is for my badass warrior mama’s out there who are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders, who are filling all the roles for all the people, and who are holding their own health and wellbeing together by the skin of their teeth.
I may not be a mom. But I’ve worked with many, and I know while you may KNOW you need to eat more plants and less processed foods in order to lose weight and maintain your energy for your hectic life, it can feel next to impossible as you try to feed the...
It's a Japanese term for 'continuous improvement' and it relies on small, incremental, consistent changes that lead to potentially massive improvement and transformation.
Both research and my own experience shows, this is by far the MOST effective strategy for long term weight loss.
How can it help with weight loss?
