Revealed: An Inside Look At My Body Struggles

Revealed: An Inside Look At My Body Struggles

I wrote a post a few months ago called Revealed: An Inside Look At How I Eat  and received a ton of comments and emails about it, with so many woman saying it helped them to see what “normal” eating looks like. I wrote it because I wanted to give a deeper perspective of what a typical day looks like. Because when I was in the throes of dieting/restricting and then overeating/binging, I didn’t have a CLUE as to what it meant to eat normally. So I wanted to do a similar post and go in depth about the body-image

The 3 Things I Discovered When I Stopped Weighing Myself

The 3 Things I Discovered When I Stopped Weighing Myself

When you’re battling your weight and body image, obsessively weighing yourself can actually do more harm than good in the quest for self-love and acceptance. I know because I used to be a slave to the scale. I weighed myself in the morning, after a big meal, after I worked out, after dinner, after anything really. What I saw on the scale dictated how I felt about myself, where I stood in comparison to others, and whether I was “acceptable” enough to wear certain clothes. My main theme was: The lower the number, the better I somehow was. If I

Can You Lose Weight Without Dieting?

Can You Lose Weight Without Dieting?

It’s the million dollar question: can you lose weight without counting calories, restricting certain foods, and slaving away at the gym 24/7? Our society tells us we can’t lose weight unless we push ourselves to the max, sweat it out at the gym at least 45 minutes a day and restrict calories, cut out carbs and/or limit certain foods. But constantly being on a rigid food plan, forcing yourself to get up at 5 am to spend an hour at the gym, and eating low-cal/low-fat/light foods sounds awful, not at all fun, and recipe for a serious binge… So what’s

“But If I Accept My Body, It Means I’m Giving Up!”

“But If I Accept My Body, It Means I’m Giving Up!”

Every single woman I work with is afraid to accept her body. (And I was terrified to accept my body for a long, long, long time). We have this belief that if we accept our bodies, it means that we’ll never lose weight and we’re giving up on ourselves. It took me years to stop despising my body, so I want to save you endless months of grief and turmoil by dispelling this belief. Accepting your body doesn’t mean you’re giving up. Giving up on what? Criticizing yourself until you feel like such a worthless piece of crap that you fall

Are You Constantly Trying to Hide Your Body?

Are You Constantly Trying to Hide Your Body?

Summer is coming. And if you’re anything like I was (and still am sometimes!), the thought of wearing shorts and tank tops sends you into a panic. (Or you avoid it altogether and refuse to bare any skin at all…) Are you constantly trying to hide your body? Do you always look for ways you can disguise, camouflage or cover those parts of yourself that you hate? Then read on, my dear, because this article is for you 🙂 I’ve been in a relationship with my significant other for about 4 years and realized the other day that for the past few

The Biggest Mistake You’re Making With Food

The Biggest Mistake You’re Making With Food

I recently wrote an article on MindBodyGreen called: The Biggest Mistake You’re Making With Food. And I got a lot of emails and comments about it. I’ve written about it before on my blog, but wanted to do a more in-depth video on this, as it’s super important. When we first start out on this path (trying to stop dieting and get our weight/food under control), we don’t know where to start. There are 4 billion articles out there (ok, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration… 🙂 ) on nutrition and dieting, and it’s easy to get confused about what to do.
