Are You Unintentionally on a Diet?

Are You Unintentionally on a Diet?

Restrictive thoughts can be sneaky little devils. We’re happily going about our day and think we are eating healthy…then BOOM after dinner, we find ourselves eating cookie after cookie and can’t seem to stop. What’s going on? It could be that you’re unintentionally on a diet. Any form of restriction or dieting will inevitably end up in a binge. Why? I call it the Law of Dieting: for every diet there is an equal and opposite binge. So how do you do if you’re unintentionally dieting? There are thoughts like these that run through your head… I’m not going to

Should You Cut Out Sugar From Your Diet?

Should You Cut Out Sugar From Your Diet?

Have you ever eaten a cupcake, then inhaled another, and could barely stop at a third and thought to yourself, “That’s it. I feel disgusting. I’m addicted to sugar and I’m giving it up completely. I’m never eating processed foods again. They make me feel awful.” (*I’m raising my hand, since I have definitely thought that a million times!) So, what’s the consensus? Should you cut out sugar from your diet? If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you know I talk about the diet mentality quite a bit. It’s the Law of Dieting (as 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

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.

Revealed: An Inside Look At How I Eat

Revealed: An Inside Look At How I Eat

I remember when I first began this journey, I wanted to know what/how normal people ate. I simply couldn’t believe anyone who actually ate real food  (i.e. wasn’t on a diet) could lose/maintain a “normal” size. I had been practicing the “less is more” habit for years and tried to eat as little as possible to be as thin as possible. (Psst…wanna learn how to be a “normal” eater?)

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
