If you can’t lose weight your body is deficient in nutrition, toxic, inflamed & otherwise out of balance.

before and after.jpgI know how frustrating it is to feel like you are doing everything right and yet you can't lose weight.

7 years ago I went from being a slightly overweight nutritionist who had settled for the after baby weight to becoming obese in less than 2 months on a healthy whole foods primarily vegetarian diet.

Yes, you absolutely can, but that doesn't mean you will.
 
Here are some of the reasons you won't...
1) You don't actually do the meal plan at all (it sits on your computer unused... and maybe even unopened!)
2) You start the plan when you are premenstrual or bleeding (worst time to look at the scale because you will be retaining water)
3) You are constipated (there is no way your liver is going to let you break down your fat stores until you are 'going' regularly)
4) Your...

Why Obesity is A Symptom of Disease - not the cause.

I believe this to be true.

Six years ago when I was an obese nutritionist, I had every reason to want to be in denial about this....after all I was expected to be an example of good health.

Thank god I was willing to admit that my hypoglycemia wasn't just a little thing.

It took getting "big" for me...

Chocolate Coconut Chewy Macaroons (just like Neilsons)

Neilsons Chocolate MacaroonsIf I was to binge on commercial candy, I would choose Nielson's chocolate macaroons.

Oh my word the crunch, the Chocolate, the yum!

Honestly, I could never not eat the whole box and then want another.

That’s how much I used to LOVE these babies!

I couldn’t find the ingredients anywhere online, so I had to create this recipe from memory.

If fact, a lot of places online say that this product is discontinued and it isn’t listed on the Neilson website.

Although my version is a...

How Do You Carry Yourself?

Attractiveness is not about the shape or weight of your body, it is related to how you feel - not to how you imagine others feel about you.

So how are you carrying yourself?

You can choose to stay frumpy wearing clothes that make you look fatter than you actually are to hide your bloated belly, the spare tire or muffin top - clothes that you’ve settled for and don’t love.

Or

You can accept your body the way it is right now and start dressing it the way you want to feel....
