Stop the Yo-Yo Dieting

Many women have been on more than a few fad diets and still have trouble keeping the weight off! Yo-Yo dieting is very unhealthy for your body and your mind.

The Holidays are not an excuse!

Over the holidays the average person gains about 1-2lbs. And research shows that people rarely lose that weight.  How can you avoid this weight gain??

Strive for 2-3 days a week. 

6 Positive Steps to Better Nutrition and Health

1. Honor your Hunger- Feed your body with adequate energy and carbohydrates. Excess hunger will trigger you to overeat. Eating when your hungry will help rebuild your trust with yourself and food. 2. Respect your body signals-  your body will tell you when you are no longer hungry. Take breaks and pause in the middle your meals and see how food tastes and what your current fullness level is.
