Dive into my best tips for sustainable weight loss, vibrant health, and unstoppable body confidence.
It's getting close to the end of the year and around this time I always get a bit reflective. I think about what I've learned, what I've overcome, what's changed in my life, and what I want to change in my life.
And in thinking about this past year, the thing I'm most proud of and the thing that's had the biggest impact on my overall wellbeing is how much I've prioritized my relationships.
I've said yes to every opportunity to hang out with friends, I booked 7 trips to see friends and family (my...

In part 1, I mentioned that restoring the glucose reserves in your muscles is a big part of your post-exercise metabolic boost. Meaning, you want to prioritize workouts that use up a lot of glucose, requiring more work from your body...
I'm going to be real with you... this is not the podcast episode I had planned for today.
Last week I wrote a fantastic guide on how to ramp up your immune system naturally as we head into fall and another covid wave.
However, when my co-host Gio and I went to record it this morning... poof! The guide was gone.
But we roll with the punches here and my girl Gio came to the rescue with a great idea while my tech guys tried to find my missing blog post.
You may have noticed that a couple of weeks...
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...
I remember last summer I was visiting my parents in Florida and on day one I had the worst heartburn I've ever experienced in my life.
It started out with the typical symptoms: that burning feeling in my chest, that hot, sour, acidic taste in the back of my throat.
Trying to go to bed that night was impossible. The pain radiated all the way to my back, I couldn't get comfortable, and all week, it seemed like every time I ate I was on the verge of the same discomfort.
Back then I...
Last week I posted a video on Instagram explaining why the health of our gut is essential on our weight loss journey (especially when you feel like you’ve already tried everything).
To recap, your gut microbiome…
Impacts your metabolism, appetite, and fat storage.
Can cause overwhelming sugar and carb cravings.
Has the power to cause mood disorders, anxiety, and depression via the vagus nerve (which obviously may influence emotional eating).
Affects your blood sugar response to food (the...
Summer is quickly approaching and with the season of bikinis and short-shorts upon us, you may be contemplating the idea of a 'cleanse' or 'detox' to tighten up those trouble zones.
Maybe you're thinking it would be good to erase some of the damage done to your body over the holidays.
Maybe you want to drop some left-over covid weight.
Maybe you're trying to get a handle on those sugar cravings before that beach vacation.
Whatever the case may be, let's talk about cleanses, detoxes, and...
It's one thing to hear a nutrition coach rattling off advice on how to get healthy when clearly, that's not something they struggle with (at least not anymore).
It can sometimes feel generic, or one-size-fits-all, or good in theory but not realistic for your life.
And the truth is, while part of my job is to share what I've learned through years of education and my own experience, a bigger part of my job is to help people navigate their individual personalities, preferences, and...
It's 2022. You've decided on the meaningful resolution that's going to be your guiding light for the year, and now comes the scary part... turning that vision into your actual reality.
But how do you do it? Like really do it?
How do you stay motivated when life tries to drag you down?
How do you stay consistent through a whole year of birthdays, holidays, weekends, happy hours, stressors, celebrations, vacations, and everything in between?
How do you navigate...
OK so I know New Years resolutions have gotten a bad rap over the years, especially if they are directed at weight loss goals.
The statics aren't in your favor and you have likely experienced the disappointment of falling off the wagon come mid-February multiple times over.
But I have to be honest, I'm out here rooting for us to bring the new year's resolution back!
It's a fresh start, a new beginning, an opportunity unlike any other throughout the year to reflect on what you really want and make a sweeping...
