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

Why THIS Can Change Your Relationship To Food

Mindful eating is one of the fastest ways to single-handedly change your relationship to food.  How can one “simple” practice be so powerful? Because mindful eating gently forces you to slow down and look at what you’re doing to your body when you eat. And in our fast paced world, we’ve completely lost touch with our eating and how food affects our bodies. We eat in our cars, in front of the TV, while we scroll through Facebook, etc. We’re constantly distracted, never paying attention to what food is actually doing to us! We’ve gotten so used to scarfing down our

But there’s a huge part of the population that battles dieting, food and weight (*raising my hand because I’ve binged and restricted for over 12 years of my life…) So for them (and me!), clean eating can be a slippery slope down into the abyss of rigid, restrictive, dieting habits and back into

What Do Binging & Facebook Stalking Have In Common?

What Do Binging & Facebook Stalking Have In Common?

So what DO these two seemingly unrelated things (binging and Facebook stalking) have in common? Let me explain. Last week I wrote about emotions and food. Namely, that when you start to feel your emotions and not use food to numb out, escape, or forget about your feelings, it ain’t always pretty. And one of my clients was confused. And so I launched into this crazy metaphor about Facebook Stalking and she had an a-ha moment. So I realized this was a must-share. Because, c’mon…who hasn’t engaged in bit of harmless Facebook stalking? I’ve stalked ex’s, girlfriends of ex’s, friends

Another Year, Another “I’m Going on a Diet”?

When you’ve consumed a thousand holiday treats and feel awful about your body, the lure of “starting over” on January 1st entices us to make that infamous New Year’s resolution:  “I’m going on a diet!” (or your version of dieting…cutting out carbs, eating clean, limiting food groups, etc) Everywhere we turn, there is talk of dieting, losing weight, and promises to swear off junk food for good. The words, “I’m going on a diet” seem to become what you hear in everyday conversation at this time of year. But come February 1st  (or even sooner!), where are most of these people?
