I get it, there's a TON of information floating around out there about what's healthy and what's not. At times even I have to take a few minutes at the grocery store to sift through my selections. So I can only imagine how frustrating it could be for someone who doesn't have extensive training in nutrition. It's common that I have clients following a few basic diet rules they've picked up along the way because they read it somewhere or a friend told them about it. Only for me to give them the unfortunate news that everything they thought they were doing right could be causing more harm than good! Below are some of the more common ones I see in my practice... 

 

 

 

Your workout routine for years has been spending countless hours on the elliptical at a moderate pace.

This very common workout routine will have you burning less and less calories over time. Chances are the calories you actually burn are much less than what the machine is reading. This is because your body gets more efficie...

When it comes to weight loss people want to put their effort where it counts. So they ask me..

 

"Is diet or exercise more important? Is it 50/50? 70/30? 80/20? Should I put my focus on my diet or my exercise? Which one will help me lose weight faster?"

 

I’m not sure how these ratios between the two factors get determined or even why it became one versus the other.  Long story short both are critical to weight loss and health, no surprise I’m sure. If you dive into the research (as I have) you’ll find countless studies supporting both sides of the table in this debate. For as many studies supporting activity, you’ll find just as many studies supporting diet. The media has a field day with this type of research, because it’s relevant and relatable to most readers. After all, nearly 75% of Americans are overweight or obese. This is when you’ll see articles surface titled: “Eating Less is Far More Important Than Exercise.” Most recently, the consensus seems to side with diet being the more...

These days the market is filled with beauty products that promise glowing skin, diminished wrinkles and an overall younger more vibrant you (who doesn't want that!?). However, the majority of what we read and hear is related to topical or external products. It fails to address the impact of what we put IN our bodies rather than what we put ON our bodies has on our external appearance. This is not to say these topical products don’t work! I have a few of my own that I LOVE and refuse to give up. BUT, there are some nutritional considerations we should make that can lead to improvements in health and appearance of our hair, nails and skin.  

 

The typical American diet is lacking or missing many important nutrients preventing us from getting all the necessary nutrition our bodies need. In fact, even if you have a decent diet you’re probably still missing out on some essential nutrients. It’s possible but not easy to meet nutritional needs with fresh food so I often reco...
