How to Thrive: Easter Brunch Edition

How to Thrive: Easter Brunch Edition

It seems to me that we need to switch our mindset. Instead of a holiday being a reason to throw caution to the wind, I wonder if we need to treat holidays more like Tuesdays. And honestly, I’m less interested in living most of life under crazy restrictions that make me feel like I need to treat myself to something, and more interested in living out enjoyable health each day.

After all, understanding these special occasions is actually just figuring out how to do life NOT on a diet. Living a real life, with real friends and family, with real opportunities to celebrate and enjoy good food and good people.

Why the Answer to the Obesity Crisis isn’t Another Diet

Why the Answer to the Obesity Crisis isn’t Another Diet

It’s National Healthy Weight Week (Jan 20-26), and as I’m celebrating by pursuing true health (no diets allowed!), it reminded me of a blog post for EKG Nutrition about intuitive eating and obesity.

I knew I wanted something that would feel practical enough to span all the different aspects of my life. All that to say, it took a bit of internal conversation. But I came up with a word. 2019 is the year of nourish.

Why I Want You to Stop Trying to Lose Weight

People often ask me what’s more important, diet or exercise? What if that’s not the right question at all? What if that’s not the best way to be healthy?

So quit dieting. Stop trying to lose weight. I mean it. Focus on healthy habits. On consistently treating your body kindly. The “diet or exercise” question will actually fall away.

3 Reasons You Should Savor Your Food

3 Reasons You Should Savor Your Food

When was the last time you truly savored something? One pattern I notice in many of my clients is that they eat without realizing it. Far from savoring it, they don’t even know they ate it! There are two significant reasons that this happens: (1) They fall prey to distracted eating. (2) They eat a day’s worth of calories in small bites. Why is this a problem?
