DO YOU EVER LOSE HOPE THAT YOU CAN EVER FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOUR BODY AGAIN?

If you find yourself at a loss and overwhelmed by nutrition claims and counterclaims, you are not alone.

It's no wonder, when most of what you've been sold about health and weight loss is designed to keep you sick and fat (think quick fixes, suppressing symptoms and ignoring true causes).

Half of what we are told will make us healthy, eventually turns out to be unhealthy.

Planning to see a nutritionist about your weight? WAIT!

If someone gives you a weight loss plan based on nothing more than calorie restriction and exercise - you should run the other way!

Ask yourself this - what self respecting nutritionist would knowingly perpetuate nutrient deficiencies and the health imbalances that make weight loss next to impossible in the first place?

"Dieting" is NOT a solution for weight loss!

It’s a temporary quick fix that makes your nutritionist look good at first, but then you are both left frustrated …

Why "diets" don't work long term.

diets don't work

I get it, you might be feeling dread about another "diet" (the 'delish' approach is not a "diet" in the conventional sense). 

When statistics show that 95%-97% dieters fail why even bother? 

That's a good question and I hear you.

Diets don't work for anyone (other than for the dieting industry because they perpetuate the very problem they profess to solve).

Here's why?

  1. They are by design for short term results (you weren't planning to live the rest of your life at the gym or starving your…

The 3 diet formulas "they" insist you follow, that are doomed to fail.

At the ripe old age of 36 I almost decided to settle on being obese for the rest of my life.

Why? Because I was sure that I was already doing everything right.

I thought if a health nut with two holistic nutrition certifications, who had been eating a natural whole foods lacto-veg diet since she was 20 years old could end up obese, well then there was no hope in hell for anyone.

I fell into victim mode, then futility and finally almost settled for staying overweight.

When I looked around me,…

Diet books I actually recommend.

weight loss books

There are very few diet books that I can recommend because few are based in wisdom or the natural diet of the human species.

The knowledge you need is out there, but you need to learn from people who put your health first.

Here are my top 5 favourite books that will get you pointed in the right direction so that you can create your own weight loss plan based on the hormonal basis of obesity and weight loss physiology.

2. The Calorie Myth by Jonathan Bailo…

Is your weight set point an issue?

Screen Shot 2021-03-29 at 4.57.19 PM

Your body weight set point refers to a specifc level of body fat that your body automatically works to maintain regardless of the quantity of calories you consume or 'try' to burn off via exercise.

This set point is why it's hard to lose weight. It's because the rest of your body's physiological functions are set to match that weight. When you lose weight, your whole body has to adjust and it takes time and consistent effort to change your body's homeostasis.

Do you know how to mov…

Here's how else you can make $ as a student.

Wondering how else you can start making money right away, so that you can earn while you learn?

With most certifications you have to wait until you are certified until you can start working with clients. This means that you have months or years without income returned on your investment. 

That is not the case when you become a Delish Diet Certified Practitioner.

Not to mention, without clinical experience, most nutritionists lack confidence because they didn't get any experience.

Get Paid While You Gain Clinical Experience

photo-1598549687090-31c1b6df7636

In the Delish Diet Certification program, we've come up with a way to help you earn while you learn without having to go get your own clients.

We are building an online student clinic! 

This plan makes me so happy, because it means that you can gain experience, be compensated for your time - and people who couldn't normally afford personalized help can get it, yay!

But you may be wondering, is it ethical for me to be paid to work with clients before I am officially certified?

I get that it m…

What to do if you are done w/dieting BUT, you still want to lose weight?

blog photo

There are plenty of people who are done with dieting and have simply embraced being fat.

There is even a whole movement around it called the 'fat acceptance' movement.

It's understandable to me that this movements exists.

I don't agree with it, but I do for certain empathize.

Diet culture is terribly superficial and fat shaming people is completely unacceptable (not to mention ignorant and gross).

But what do you do if you don't align with diet culture, but you STILL do want to lose weight?…

Losing weight is not as simple as counting calories.

pic for article

Losing weight is simple, but not necessarily easy.

It's not all about calories, but it's actually pretty doable when you know what you are doing and you have the right facts in front of you.

The trouble is, that when it comes to weight loss, most people believe so called "facts" that are actually based on out of context 'half truths' and concepts that don't translate into real world, real life lasting results.

One such simplistic concept is that the answer to being overweight can be summed up…
