Losing weight is simple, it's the causes that are complex.

If you don’t plan to do your current strategy for weight loss forever, then why bother?

As soon as you quit working that strategy, it quits working for you.

There is only one core strategy you need.

Go back to eating your natural human diet.

It is as simple as that.

If you can’t do that - you have educational, environmental, emotional, hormonal, mindset, relational and addiction issues in the way.

Stop ‘dieting’ and deal with the root causes.

Being overweight is NOT...

Why you should put that detox box back on the shelf (do this instead).

Have you ever bought one of those health food store detox kits?

If you know me well, you know that for many years I worked in the health food store industry. You might be surprised to learn that in all that time, I never once went on a ‘cleanse in a box’.

One thing that I know about detox (with a lot of experience customizing my own food based cleanses) is that you can add as many herbs and supplements as you want to a cleansing regime, but if you don’t make specific...

Unlike fad diets, the Delish Diet is actually designed for permanent weight loss.

You want your results with weight loss to last forever right? Then it’s simply logical that you are going to have to keep doing what you did to lose the weight, to keep it off.

This is where the Delish Diet approach is like no other. 

Just think of all the diets you’ve done in the past. You didn’t really think you were going to eat and exercise like ‘that’ forever did...

The only healthy way to lose 15lbs in 3 weeks

lemon smoothie pic.jpg

Cleansing is the only way to get quick results with weight loss while getting healthier than you’ve ever been - in contrast to dieting and calorie restriction which just depletes your nutrition and screws up your hormones - thus making it harder and harder to lose weight. 

In fact with dieting and calorie restriction, you not only gain the weight back - but more often than not, you gain back more than you started with because reducing calories for prolonged periods of time, reduces...

Delish Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut Butter Cups.jpg

So you thought that peanut butter cups are bad for you? Nah, the only thing that makes them bad for you is when they are loaded with sugar, processed vegetable oils and milk powder.

These peanut butter cups are a superfood! Did you know that chocolate is the 4 most nutrient dense food on the planet? Yip, that's why I encourage my clients to eat it to their hearts content!

What you will need:

Chocolate part:
1 cup cocoa
1 cup coconut oil
3-4 Tbsp powdered erythritol
3 drops stevia

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.

A healthy person eating a healthy diet stays slim without counting calories or exercising. You know that right? So obviously eating less and moving more isn't the answer (your naturally skinny...

Can you really lose 5 lbs in 3 days?

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.

I could have tried to justify how I could be obese and healthy at the same time because I lived a natural lifestyle and ate a whole foods diet.

I spent a year in victim mode and in futility.

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...
