WHAT Did You Just Eat?!


When I first got out of college I worked in nutrition education. It was my job to help people understand the impact of their food choices on their health and their weight. I found that a lot of people, regardless of their weight, felt confident that they were making good choices at the grocery store and didn’t need to worry too much about food quality for themselves or their children. ...Read More

Using Buffers To Stay on Track


Earlier this week I posted an overview of buffers and triggers and shared some common examples of each. Like I said then, understanding my buffers and triggers and working with them is most of the most important differences between my lifestyle change which allowed me to lose over 100 lbs and all my past failed attempts.  Here’s a quick recap of what I explained the other day: Think of a ...Read More

Healthy Foods Aren’t Always Fat Loss Foods


I don’t care if you eat "healthy". I’m sure that more often than not, you probably do. Here’s the thing: it doesn’t matter. No offense. I know your intentions are good. Mine were too.

You keep going down the wrong road until you’re rescued by “recalculating!” and then obediently turn and merge only as you’re told.

What is Primal? And What CAN You Eat?


The typical American diet has changed. Drastically. In fact, in wellness circles it’s referred to as “SAD” – the Standard American Diet. Quite fitting, really, when you consider the way we have replaced nutritious, whole foods with processed, chemical-laden convenience foods.
