Creating a Fuller Life Versus Smaller Body

Tags:

I understand turning to food for "comfort". I understand turning to food when you're lonely. I understand turning to food after rejection. I understand turning to food when you're bored. I also understand what it takes to stop using food as a crutch and start learning to live and thrive without out mis-using food and betraying your body. I understand the burning desire for a smaller body. I understand what ...Read More

319: It’s Not “More Special” with More Food

Tags:

I was on the phone with a client-friend the other day. We were chatting about her goals and what changes she needs to make in order to feel better about her life & her progress. She said, "I need to stop telling myself that everything is a special occasion". What she meant was, "I need to stop making everything special also mean overindulging and/or drinking". And that's different. It's not ...Read More

317: What Are You REALLY Hungry For? Connection with Yourself & Others

Tags:

If you keep turning to food, despite your goals to lose weight or get healthy, it's time to consider: what are you REALLY hungry for? I've said for years that transformation is far more about tackling WHY we eat and not as much about WHAT we eat. In fact, that's why I created Breaking Barriers. But today we're diving deeper into what is often missing: lack of connection & relationship ...Read More

309: How To Be Less Reactive – A Modern Superpower

Tags:

The other day, while dealing with multiple airport delays, I realized I have a super power. I believe this super power is what is largely responsible for me not ditching all healthy habits I fought so hard to build when my life got turned upside down with health & personal issues.

But enjoying food without regret is absolutely possible! Today I'm sharing a conversation with one of my clients who is learning to do just that.

Rebuilding: Starting From Scratch

Tags:

Rebuilding. That’s the phase of life I’m in. It’s amazing. It’s exciting. It can be a little scary if I let it. And here’s the best part - it’s possible every day, for every person, no matter what’s going on in your life. I think that’s one of the most undervalued & underappreciated parts of life. The ability to rebuild, in any and every moment. All it takes is a ...Read More

291: When Family & Friends Don’t Support Your Goals

Tags:

I know that many of you don't have the support of your family & friends as it relates to your health or weight loss goals. I've been getting an increasing number of emails from folks looking for ways to address family & friends who don't support their goals.

289: Q&A On Emotional Eating

Tags:

Today I'm answering your questions on emotional eating. This is one of the biggest barriers to progress. It's not that we don't know what to eat to reach our goals, it's that in moments of emotion or stress, we act as though we don't care. We certainly DO care, and overeating or overindulging creates more emotion, stress and frustration. If there is an area where you struggle, don't miss today's ...Read More

273: Paleo Meal Delivery Services – EB’s Review

Tags:

I had been really resistant to try any kind of paleo meal delivery service for a couple of reasons: they seemed really expensive and difficult to customize. I felt like it wasn't worth the price to buy a package of meals most of which included components I wouldn't personally eat (potato, sweet potato, fruit, etc). I changed my mind when I found Paleo Power Meals. Today I'm sharing my 2-3 ...Read More
