Is There A Shortcut To Getting Through Food Issues?

Is There A Shortcut To Getting Through Food Issues?

When you’re struggling with food, constantly obsessing over your body, and desperately frustrated with your weight, it’s hard not to get sucked into the promise of a quick fix. Everywhere we look we see promises of instant “solutions” to our most-pressing problems. “Lose 10 pounds in 7 days” “Slim down in just one month” “Get bikini ready for summer with these 10-day cleanse!” Listen. I know how seductive these titles are. They promise quick fixes and fast results. It’s tempting to think the solution to our problem can be resolved in a few days, a week or a month.

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

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
