5 Simple Steps to Quit Sugar

Sugar is a sneaky thing – it’s hiding everywhere and in many places you may not even realize! The thing is, when you think of sugar, I’m not only talking about table sugar. Sugar is found in many foods like yogurt, granola, protein drinks, energy bars, cereal, muffins, nut butters, coconut water, green juices, whole grain bread, Even 1 Tbsp. of your raw honey has 4 tsp. of added sugar…that’s okay but when we aren’t supposed to get more than 6 tsp. of sugar a day (women) and 9 tsp. per day (men) it all adds up quickly. Did you know the average breakfast of gluten-free cereal with fat free milk, yogurt and a banana adds up to a whopping 67 g. (22 tsp.) of sugar!?!?! I know you get it by now… While real-food sources of sugar can be incorporated in the right balance in a healthy diet, let’s chat about how we can quit sugar and rid ourselves from the foggy, fatigued and fat feeling it brings with it!

The Ultimate Post-Holiday Cleanse

The stretch between Thanksgiving, Hanukah, and Christmas and New Year’s is often a time of merriment and overindulgence for most people so by the time January 1st rolls around you’re ready to go on a celery and water diet to undo the damage. While it’s my ultimate goal by working with clients on 1:1 custom health coaching programs where a healthy diet becomes sustainable, even those of us on a healthy track can benefit from a seasonal cleanse. There are tons of expensive, complicated and sometimes dangerous ways to cleanse that are downright painful due to the amount of deprivation you have to undergo. So how do I recommend you approach a healthy cleanse this year that will detoxify your body naturally while simultaneously creating healthy habits? Read More

Don't let Thanksgiving derail your healthy diet this year!

Will Thanksgiving Derail Your Healthy Diet This Year? It's almost Thanksgiving and I bet you're already thinking about your holiday meal! Some of you may be looking forward to it, and maybe some of you aren't because of the stress and temptations. Eating healthy on Thanksgiving (and around the holidays in general) can be a challenge for many people; otherwise there wouldn't be the issue of weight gain around this time of year. I am not one to focus mostly on weight by any means, but it is very important to me that you feel good and that is shifting your mindset from being "off and on" the sugar rollercoaster and "diets" and to thinking about your nutrition in terms of an ongoing healthy lifestyle vs. a short-term fix.
