There is No Such Thing as a "Healthy" Calorie Deficit

May 21, 2021

If you haven't checked out my recent reel on this subject, you can check it out HERE.

Here is why I say there is no such thing as a "healthy" calorie deficit:

Food deprivation (whether its mental or physical) will leave us wanting MORE. Our bodies biologically don't realize we're intentionally restricting, and our bodies will send signals to drive us to EAT. When we are in a deficit our bodies will try to encourage us to correct that through cravings and hunger signals. The more we ignore these cues, the more likely we are to binge or overeat.  

Although I do not promote intentional weight loss, some people do lose weight throughout their intuitive eating journeys. This is not because they're trying to be in a calorie deficit, but rather they likely were eating more than what their bodies needed because they were depriving themselves mentally and/or physically of food when struggling with diet culture mentality and body image. 

Food deprivation or attempting to...

You Know Your Eating Personality..so Now What?!

Feb 15, 2021

Hey there! My hope is you've already taken my free 2-minute eating personality quiz, but in case you missed it you can still take it HERE!

I now want to share with you a few tips you can practice if you are the unconscious eater, the careful clean eater, or the professional dieter. 

For the UNCONSCIOUS EATER:

Practice menu planning weekly to insure you are purchasing groceries to make actual meals. This will also help with eating out less and eating more balanced.

Read chapters 7, 11, and 12 in the book Intuitive Eating. These chapters focus specifically on honoring your hunger and fullness cues and coping with your emotions with kindness. 

Practice mindfulness when eating at least once a day for a few minutes. It doesn't have to be all or nothing! Create a comfortable eating environment and turn off distractions. 

For the CAREFUL CLEAN EATER:

Challenge yourself to tuning in to what you actually want rather than what you feel you "should" eat....

5 Common Nutrition Myths Busted

Feb 05, 2021
 

Hey, there! You may have seen this REEL of mine from last week busting the myth that drinking lemon water is some magic weight loss potion, and it gave me the idea to share with you a few more common nutrition myths I hear alllll the time. 

So let's get to it! 

 

MYTH #1: There are "good carbs" and "bad carbs"

False!!! I always say "a carb is a carb is a carb", "a fat is a fat is a fat", and "a protein is a protein is a protein". No matter what kind of carbohydrate you consume, it is all going to ultimately break down to glucose in the body so your body and brain can use it for energy. Getting variety, however, is important because all foods contain various nutrients that contribute to your health. I will also add that the ONLY difference between whole grain bread is the fiber. If you are making about 50% of your grains whole and eating 3-5 servings of fruit and veggies a day, youre going to be doing great with your fiber intake. There is no need to...
