Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
Last week I was chatting with a new client who was struggling with a serious case of menopause belly.
You know that little (or not so little) tire of fat that forms around your midsection when you hit menopause that seems to defy the laws of weight loss??
The one that resists every diet attempt and workout routine? (Because hot flashes, low libido, and poor sleep aren’t bad enough, am I right??)
While I’m sure you’re familiar with the fact that hormonal changes...
This podcast/blog is alllll about getting to the actual root of stubborn weight.
Because far too many people are gaslit and shamed about their weight struggles.
They're made to feel like they need to starve themselves to get results.
Or like their body is simply broken and they'll never be able to have the body they want.
Or like they're just plain stupid and don't know how to count calories.
Well the buck stops here.
If you've truly put in the effort to not just follow diets, but to...
If you know me, you know I am always trying to get to the underbelly of weight gain.
After 11 years of research, I'm a convinced that for most people battling their weight, the weight isn't actually the problem.
Stubborn weight is a symptom of an underlying problem.
And it is my goal to help you know what those possible root causes are so you can be empowered to transform your body and health without resorting to starving yourself.
And one of those potential root causes is...
Weight loss plateaus.
They are annoying. Frustrating. Defeating. Discouraging. And all around sucky.
They also are inevitable on any weight loss journey, so instead of fighting the unavoidable, let's understand why they happen and what you can do to get that scale moving again (without doing anything you're going to regret later).
When you start to lose weight you tend to lose it quickly because - spoiler alert - a good amount of it is water weight. Initially your body...
So you finally did it! After hemming and hawing for weeks, you finally got up the motivation to start a workout routine.
You got a cute new workout outfit, you found a gym, class, or program you're ready to commit to, you got your hair in that high messy bun that says you mean business, and you are ready to get in there and prove to those mean girls from high school you do NOT have cankles!
But a month later, you've only lost a pound and feel that hyped up motivation slipping through your...
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 eat clean, count my calories, workout, and the weight still isn't coming off. What more could I possible do?
I think my metabolism is messed up, is there anything I can do to fix it?
Every time I try to lose weight I self sabotage. How do I make myself stop?!
How badly does alcohol inhibit my weight loss?
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...
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...
My obsession with diet, exercise, and my body weight started at a very early age. I remember devouring nutrition and fitness articles in middle school. Following my mom’s workout DVDs before I was 13 years old. Analyzing the small layer of fat around my midsection in the mirrors of my dance studio at 11 years old.
And yet, I would still spend the next 10 years living in a body I hated.
No matter how obsessed I got about what exercises I should do or what diet I should follow, I just couldn’t stick with a...
