“Track your food!? Really? That’s you’re brilliant tip?” …perhaps you were expecting some miracle supplement, creative diet or at least a suggestion of what to eat for breakfast. Telling you what to eat will only get you so far. My tips, my advice, and my approach with all my clients is focusing on the behaviors, emotions, habits, and mindset. Change the behaviors and the weight takes care of itself. At the end of the day, I’m not blowing anyone’s mind with telling them what’s healthy and what’s not. You know that ordering a salad with grilled chicken is better than the bacon cheese burger. This blog series is going to be more about what actions and behaviors will result in the outcomes you want (weight loss that last). I will teach you which specific actions if repeated over time will result in you naturally choosing the salad over the burger and feeling good about it!

So yes, my first tip is to track your food. ALL of it! The good the bad, and everything in between. Don’t just track w...

Do I think breakfast is “the most important meal of the day?” ehh.. I think all of our meals and snacks are pretty important.

So I have a slight obsession with taking traditional dishes and trying to find healthier tweaks to make. I know what you’re thinking... “oh like sugar-free, gluten-free, oil free, and basically taste-free brownies?? No thanks!” Yeah I’m with you on that too. If I’m going to have a brownie it’s going to be an amazing and make it worth it. (I’m probably shooting myself in the foot though because I’m sure at some point I’ll post one of those recipes). To me, if what I’m eating doesn’t taste at least somewhat good than it’s not something that is going to satisfy me. I’ll probably be looking for something else to eat in about 15 minutes. Finding foods you truly enjoy and look forward to eating is one of the magical keys to sticking with a healthy routine long term. Okay, maybe not magical but it works well and I have hundreds of clients that would agree. When a client first comes to me looking to lose weight and get healthier I always inquire about different diets they have tried in the p...
