Is It Okay To Have Some Food Rules (Or Should You Give Yourself Permission?)

Is It Okay To Have Some Food Rules (Or Should You Give Yourself Permission?)

So I talk a lot about giving yourself permission, allowing yourself to eat more freely, and letting go of food rules.  I mean, it’s hard to get out of the “I swear I’m gonna start over tomorrow!” cycle when you have 100 foods on the list of “things I shouldn’t eat”. But how do you balance all the rules and “shoulds” you have in your head with the freedom you truly desire? That is exactly what I’m talking about in today’s blog. From the time we’re little, we are inundated with what’s healthy vs unhealthy, good vs bad. We grow

Are You Sneaking Food? Here’s What To Do

Are You Sneaking Food? Here’s What To Do

Do you find yourself waiting for the moment your significant other leaves the room so you can sneak some of those cookies when he/she isn’t looking? Or counting down the seconds when you drop your kids off at school so you can hit up the Dunkin Donuts drive-through to get that 1/2 dozen donuts you’ve been fantasizing about? Are you sneaking food more than you’d like to admit? In my binge-years, I used to wait until no one was in the house to raid the pantry and binge. Spoon after spoon of ice cream, then the candy jar, then the last

Do You Eat Perfectly All Day And Binge At Night?

It’s the start of a new day (or week). You woke up and swore on every last dime that today is the day you’re going to make some changes around your food. It’s 9:00 am and you’re off to a great start: You got up to go to the gym and sweated it out to lots of cardio. You had a chock-full-of-nutrients Kale smoothie for breakfast. Lunch rolls around and you ate exactly what you had packed: a salad with all the fixins-lettuce, broccoli, cucumbers, carrots, peppers, grilled chicken and a sprinkling of cheese. At 3:30 pm you eat your healthy snack

What Does Eating “Healthy” Actually Mean? Find Out Here

Ever wonder what eating healthy actually means? (I never thought about it for many years, as I was just caught up in trying to follow rules and plans and diets). So many times, we have this cookie cutter image of being healthy. We think kale smoothies, fresh juices, lean proteins with salad and 45 minutes of cardio every day. We tend to think of health as the picture perfect woman on the cover of Women’s Health (you know, smiling happily in her skimpy shorts and sports bra, showing off her toned abs). But what does eating healthy actually mean?  And

Think You Just Need More Willpower To “Fix” Your Food Issues?

Think You Just Need More Willpower To “Fix” Your Food Issues?

Do you think you just need more willpower to stop giving in to temptation? I used to think if I just had more willpower, more self-control and a little bit more discipline, I would finally have it altogether around food. I mean, almost every diet out there tells you “not to give in!” “resist the cupcake, it’s not worth it!” and “you can do it, don’t succumb to temptation!” But the reality is, how many times can we resist the 2nd piece of cake, the basket of bread at the restaurant and the homemade baked cookies in the break room

Should You Cut Out Carbs?

Should You Cut Out Carbs?

Should you cut out carbs from your diet? Ahhh the million dollar question. (And one I hear all the time from clients.) Cutting out carbs is something everyone THINKS they need to be doing in order to lose weight. If you’ve struggled for years battling your weight and food, it can seem that there is a direct correlation between cutting out carbs and weight loss (not to mention we’ve been taught that carbs are “bad”!) I went to a wedding in Florida this past weekend and two of my close friends were on a “no carb” kick…both trying to lose weight
