What if one call could change your life?

When I was obese, I was drained, miserable, emotionally unfulfilled and overburdened.

I was married to a man who felt more like a third child, than a partner. 

Over time he became emotionally abusive and on a few occasions physically as well. 

I was trying to hold things together for the kids and although I was dissatisfied in the relationship, I still loved him.

I listened to the lies of his words, instead of 'hearing' the truth of his actions.

Empty were his platitudes and...

The one thing 97% of dieters won't do to lose weight

revamping the kitchen.jpg

There is a reason 97% of dieters fail.

The reason is obvious.

They fail to stick to the diet.

Hold on, hold on.

It's not because they are lazy and undisciplined, it's because weight loss diets are designed to be done for a temporary time period.

They are not by design for permanent results.

Think about it:

- If you don't already go to the gym and love it, how long do you think you can force yourself to do it?
- How long can you really live on 1000 calories or less a day, before you freak out...

Carbs - good, bad, ugly?

pink top eating cake.jpg
Vegans say a high carb diet is good, the Keto people say low carb is best and the Carnivores say carbs are completely unnecessary (yes there is such thing as a carnivore diet!).

Who's right, who's wrong and how is the lay person who hasn't extensively studied nutrition supposed to know who's telling the truth and who isn't.

Well, it isn't really a matter of who's telling the truth or of anybody telling lies.

It is a matter of context.

The fact is that carbs exist in...

Why you are going to have to throw out your scale to lose weight.

sacsle in the garbage.jpg
The reason why is that focusing on what the scale says is focusing your time, energy & attention on the wrong thing.
You think your weight is your problem, but it isn’t.

Your weight is an effect of your problem, not the cause.

Your problem is fivefold ...

1 - You have a low level of health education or consciousness (or both). You don’t actually know what you are doing. You could be doing it wrong or 'half assing' things - in any case you are making...

Weight Loss Block #1

'Low Digestive Fire'

Weight loss is not as simple as 'eat less & move more'.

There are 8 physiological blocks to weight loss that have nothing at all to do with calories or exercise.

Here are the 4 ways that having 'low digestive fire' blocks weight loss...
1) poor digestion and absorption leads to nutritional deficiencies that trigger powerful cravings
2) incompletely digested food particles break down into opiate like chemicals that trigger food addiction.
3)...

If you could lose weight w/o dieting, would you?

If you could would you.jpg
Do you secretly want to lose weight but haven't yet put your energy there because you sense that diets are not the answer and it seems they don't work anyway?

If you think that, you would be right.

97% of dieters who lose weight, fail to keep it off, so what is even the point?

There is no point. It is pointless.

Diets are not the answer to weight loss.

Want to learn how to lose weight without dieting and learn what the 3% of people who successfully keep the weight...

Want to liberate yourself from the diet mentality?

burning food pyramid 2.jpg

There is a mental paradigm that keeps people on the diet rollercoaster, despite not getting permanent results.

If you have been dieting for years, or worse for decades - the problem is in your mind.

I am not saying that the extra fat on your body is in your mind.

What I am saying is that you have a certain mindset that stops you from clearly seeing the truth.

You've been buying into half truths, outright lies and quick fixes.

You haven't been willing to face the truth about what it takes to...

My story of starvation & then salvation from 'diets'

Reverse Before and After.png

This is part of my story of how I discovered that dieting doesn't work and what actually does.

The attached photo is a reverse before and after photo.

It's more like an after, and after that photo.

I starved myself to fit into my grad dress.

This first photo of me is after having starved myself down for grad.

The second photo is at some kind of community event soon after having gained back about 15lbs.

I still remember feeling especially not good about myself that day - ashamed to be seen...

When your toddler says she's fat.

I was chatting with a lady yesterday about young girls and body image and how she had heard that my daughters dance school was well known for being a place with zero tolerance of body shaming or pressuring dancers to be a certain size.

As the mother of a thirteen year old, I was really glad to hear that my daughter's dance school had this reputation. And yet that hasn't stopped her from feeling the internal and peer pressure of wanting to be thinner.

It made me think back to a few years ago...
