Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
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...
I see people arguing over nutrition research all the time. This study says keto is the best, this study says paleo’s the best, this study says vegan’s the best. But here’s the thing, research and the experts behind it can be skewed, biased, and outdated.
How many times have we proven old diets wrong that were once strongly supported by hundreds of studies (the era of ‘fat makes you fat’ comes to mind)?
Look at the fact that most researchers don’t want to use women to test their...
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...
‘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...
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...
Do you ever wonder if your regular restaurant habit is sabotaging your weight loss goals?
Short answer: it probably is. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice going out for looking lean. Stick with me sis...
Back in a past life, I worked as a server at a popular restaurant and I can't tell you how many women order our signature salad thinking they were 'being good'. That salad was 1300 calories.
And that's the crux of it. Even when we think we're making good choices, even when we order something that would...
I can’t begin to tell you how many women have come to me who have tried every diet under the sun who feel like no matter how hard they try, the weight just is never coming off.
After years of watching others find success on the very diets that failed them, they wonder if it’s just… them. They wonder if they’re just getting old, or their genetics are working against them, or they’re simply destined to a life of feeling fluffy.
If you can relate, I’m going to assure you right now:...
I remember back in the day when I worked out twice a day 5 days per week, I watched everything I ate, I got plenty of sleep, and I could NOT seem to drop the stubborn pounds that had settled around my midsection.
And as someone who was fascinated by health and fitness throughout my entire life, it was extra frustrating that I was so stumped.
To make an extremely long story short, my problem turned out to be my hormones and my stress levels. Once I got my thyroid numbers in check,...
