You wake up and realize the morning mental fog you're used to has disappeared.
Your stomach rumbles and instead of stressing over your 'fasting window,' you prepare a delicious breakfast that leaves you energized for your morning workout - one that you're surprisingly looking forward to.
As you stand in front of the mirror, instead of picking apart every flaw, you stand tall. For once confident and proud of the woman in the mirror.
That’s what happens when you learn how to listen to your body and give it the fuel it needs to thrive.
This is where your gut health comes in. Sometimes, the bacteria in your gut can be out of balance, leading to cravings, hunger and fullness miscues, fatigue, low motivation, and difficulty losing weight (no matter how low your calorie count is).
No more guessing. No more yo-yo dieting. No more dreading buttoning up your jeans.
I know you’ve been-there-done-that with all the diets in the book. Follow Your Gut works because it’s not a diet. If you’re ready to meet and embody the next-level version of yourself while healing your gut and your relationship with food, then I’ve got a spot with your name on it. We’re only a click away.
Our bodies are expertly designed to know exactly what they need.
But you’re bombarded with conflicting messages on a daily basis from the “experts” who are running diet culture.
What they don’t tell you is that these recommendations have long term consequences like disrupting your gut, hormones, metabolism, and satiety signals... oh and did I mention making weight loss harder.
Which is why, despite trying your best, you continue to struggle.
Despite the conflicting information that you’re getting on a near-daily basis, you CAN make lasting changes in your body. You CAN feel your best. You CAN get to the bottom of your weight issues.
Let’s do it together.
Do you ever stop to look around at your life only to realize that far too much of it revolves around food?
You’re eating pretty well throughout the week and working out when motivation strikes.
You wake up Monday morning bloated and guilty after your weekend cheat days (which let's be honest, started Thursday night).
You sit there wondering how many burpees it’ll take to balance out that sleeve of cookies you ate while no one was watching.
I see you because I’ve been you. Which is exactly why I created Follow Your Gut: the program I wish I had when I was going through all that.
Growing up, I loved to dance. But no matter how many hours I put in at the studio, I still felt ashamed of my body. I remember constantly putting my arms over my stomach to hide my “rolls”.
I remember shoving candy wrappers to the bottom of the trash can, trying to hide my binges from my family.
Eventually, my health took a turn. I suffered from exhaustion, chronic bronchitis, white patches on my skin, acne, hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s, and countless digestive issues.
After years of looking for solutions, I finally got to the root of all my problems… my gut.
My gut-healing journey honestly saved me. I finally stopped using food as punishment or reward, and instead used it to heal.
This is why I created Follow Your Gut.
You deserve to understand your body, to feel your best, and to live your life free from the secrets, shame, and fake willpower.
The Follow Your Gut Curriculum is a comprehensive, thorough, and strategic education to help you get to the bottom of your biggest struggles and walk you through habit changes that will finally get you to your goals.
Phase 1 will help you to understand your gut and the role it plays in you reaching your goals faster. You’ll learn how to optimize your gut, manage daily stressors, and make your new habits actually stick.
Week 1: Gut Health 101
→ Learn about the inner workings of the gut and how it affects your metabolism, energy, mood, and cravings while also learning how to optimize your gut for lifelong health and easier weight loss.
Week 2: Conquer Your Cravings
→ Your relationship with food often times comes down to the health of your gut. When the bad bugs outnumber the good ones, they have the power to change your tastebuds and send signals to your brain to crave carbs and sugar. When we learn to restore this balance, we can stop relying on willpower and take back control.
Week 3: The Busy Chick’s Guide to Stress Management
→ You’ll learn how stress affects your gut, waistline, and eating habits. This lesson will tell you exactly what to do when it feels like you can’t escape from the overwhelm of day-to-day life.
Week 4: The Happy Belly, Flat Belly Lifestyle
→ Struggle with consistency? Here you'll discover the science of habit change and how to create a healthy lifestyle you can stick to. You'll learn how to finally break the habits that are holding you back and how to maintain your new healthy habits for life.
Phase 2 is all about building on what you’ve learned in Phase 1 to create a healthy lifestyle that is free from emotional eating, the all-or-nothing mindset, and yo-yo dieting.
Week 1: Manic Eating to Mindful Eating
→ You’ll learn the key to losing weight for good without focusing on restriction or deprivation. The best part? It doesn’t involve counting a damn thing - no macros, no calories - just eating.
Week 2: Never Binge Again
→ Can you recall the last time you promised yourself that you would never eat chocolate again? It’s okay, I can too. We’ll discuss the strategies that you’ve been following that aren’t serving you and cook up some new ones that’ll help you to overcome overeating.
Week 3: Feeling Your Emotions Instead of Feeding Them
→ Emotional eating is normal - food is a part of every event we have as a society. Births, weddings, funerals, you name it and there’s probably food at the center of it. But when we bury our emotions in food, we don’t process them or release them. This week, you’ll learn how to effectively do both so you never feel like food is your life jacket ever again.
Week 4: Food Freedom Forever - 3 Steps to Maintain Your Results and Find Your Healthy Ever After
→ In this final lesson, we’re building an unbreakable mindset around food while strategizing how you'll continue carrying out all that you've learned over the first 7 weeks so you can embody the lifestyle of food freedom that you’ve been craving. After this lesson, you will never feel the need to 'diet' again.
Are you ready to lay the groundwork for a life that you actually enjoy living? One where you know you can go to a party without an ounce of stress over what to eat? One where you don’t constantly look down at your stomach and think 'ugh'? It’s all available for you in this round of Follow Your Gut.
It’s time to take control of your life, learn how to listen to your body and actually start to live again. I know how hard it is to take the first step. I know how scary it is to put all of your faith into yet another program. But together, we can make magic happen. Together we can get you living the life you want in a body you love.
Inside of Follow Your Gut, you’ll have weekly Hot Seat Coaching with Kat where she’ll answer all of your questions. Between calls you’ll be able to reach out in the private community where Kat will respond with video messages and comments to help you gain clarity and stick to your goals.
If something is out of scope, I’ll refer you out to a medical professional who I feel would be the best fit in supporting your goals.
Often participants are also meeting with their therapist outside of weekly coaching calls. Relying on a mental health professional to help you with the mindset work is an excellent compliment to the work that we’ll be doing together.
While I would love for everyone to have an open mind around food, I understand that some people adhere to specific dietary preferences. As long as you’re not following a “diet” Kat can help you to reach your goals.
If you’re following a specific diet due to health concerns, Kat will help you navigate those challenges to reach your goals.
For example: If you’re doing keto to lose weight, that won’t be in line with the goals of this program. If you’re following a vegan lifestyle then you will still be able to achieve your goals inside of Follow your Gut.
Please Note: Doing an elimination diet with dietary preferences and restrictions is challenging, but not impossible.
The beauty of the workouts that are included in Follow Your Gut is that they are completely customizable to your individual lifestyle and fitness level. We’ll work around your injuries and preferences to tailor a program to you and your goals.
Unable to workout? No problem. You'll still get incredible results just with the nutrition part of the program!
Kat doesn't provide a meal plan, but the best part is inside Follow Your Gut, you won't need one! With this program you'll learn strategies that will help you to eat freely far beyond the end-date of the program. If you like structure, you'll have the ability to create an eating plan on your own, from all the recommendations taught inside the program!
