How to Undo Thanksgiving Damage

nutrition coach Nov 28, 2023

That magical holiday and the accompanying feast have come and gone—and if you stayed on track, you are one of the few. The good news is, whether you’ve been working with a nutrition coach or following your own program, you can get back on track and minimize the damage without missing a beat. Here are three awesome ways to get back on track and undo some of that Thanksgiving damage.

1. Check and Restock Your Kitchen

This means get rid of the leftovers. If you didn’t give them away at your dinner, donate them to a local shelter as soon as possible (no, we’re not kidding). Then do a clean sweep of your pantry and refrigerator. Get rid of all the processed foods and simple carbs that you may have stocked up on for your holiday preparations. Then hit the supermarket and reload on healthy, low carb snacks and foods.

2. Work it Out

While it may seem harder than ever to motivate, it’s essential that you jump right back into your fitness routine. Go to the gym,...

6 Tips for a Healthy Thanksgiving

Splurging on Thanksgiving can be difficult to resist—even for a nutrition and mindset coach! But holiday binges can set off a snowball effect that completely derails your progress. Having a plan can make the difference between a successful holiday season or one filled with regret. Read on for some ways to minimize stress and stay on track this Thanksgiving and beyond.

1. Make Moves

The worst time to stray from your workout routine is when you’re indulging more than usual. Why not do the opposite and schedule extra workouts this holiday weekend? Exercising in the days leading up to and following Thanksgiving will steady your metabolism and burn extra calories. Do your regular workout routine the morning of, even if it means getting up early. This will help minimize holiday stress and start your day off right.

2. Don’t “Save Up” for the Big Feast

A common practice is “saving up” until dinner—basically starving all day and then unleashing...

5 Greens to Get in Your Diet

When you’re trying to lose weight and transform your body, it’s essential to consume protein—yet it’s just as important to get the macronutrients your body needs to build lean muscle and be as healthy as possible. Macronutrients are vitamins and minerals that your body can’t produce on its own but requires to function properly, which means they must come from your diet or supplements. The good news is, you can get these macronutrients from produce, especially green vegetables.

As a transformational nutrition coach, I recommend incorporating some of the following veggies into your diet to get closer to your weight loss goal while boosting your overall health.

1. Kale

There’s a reason this green leafy veggie continues to trend—it’s loaded with vitamins A, C and K, a fat-soluble nutrient that helps proteins bond to calcium ions. It’s also rich in dietary fiber, so it helps satiate your hunger, and is an excellent source of other...

How to Reduce Stress & Lose Weight

Uncategorized Nov 10, 2023

Stress plays a major role in your overall health and weight. Even when you work out religiously and strive to eat healthy, stress can throw a wrench in your lifestyle that leads to weight gain. Stress accumulates in our bodies and increases the production of cortisol, the body’s main stress hormone. When cortisol levels are high, this results in hunger pangs, cravings for sugar and fatty foods, and ultimately, an increase in stubborn belly fat. It also causes glucose levels and blood pressure to spike, which can be very dangerous for your health.

Reducing stress is essential for our overall health and wellness, as well as reaching our ideal weight. Here are a few ways to reduce stress so you can avoid the repercussions on your waistline and health.

Increase Physical Activity

Regular exercise and physical activity has been shown to reduce stress and boost endorphins, which promotes an improved mood. Working out—as well as gentle activities like walking or...

5 Foods That Rev Your Metabolism

Uncategorized Oct 13, 2023

Whether you’re following a diet or trying to maintain the results you’ve already attained, eating the right foods can make the difference in your efforts. Luckily, much research shows that certain foods can help burn fat, boost your metabolism and use calories as they are digested. Here are a few that will help transform your body and the way it works.

1. Lemons

Citrus such as lemons that are rich in vitamin C will help you metabolize fat faster and burn more calories overall. Lemons also alkalize your body and boost immunity, while working to slow down the digestion of starches and helping to regulate blood sugar levels. Squeeze some into your water and tea, put slices in your salad and add to your favorite recipes.

2. Grapefruit

One eight ounce serving of grapefruit offers more than 100 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C. Research conducted by both Scripps Clinic and Vanderbilt University showed that there is a unique chemical reaction tied to...

How to Get Back on Track

Have you fallen off track lately? Sometimes life gets in the way of our healthy lifestyle and weight loss goals, which makes for an ideal time for a session with a transformational nutrition coach.

Resist the urge to get out the scale and beat yourself up—instead follow these steps to get right back on track with your healthy lifestyle.

1. Don’t Give Into Guilt

Evaluate and come up with strategies for handling the next big weekend that comes your way. What could you have done differently? What triggered you to give in to cravings? What can you do differently the next time?...
