At the end of the day, how do you want to feel?
Most of us get nutrition information from the Internet, right? We are barraged with the latest and greatest diets, tips for weight loss and how to have a healthy heart.
It’s confusing! That’s why I ask ‘how do you want to feel?’ What are your goals for energy, stamina, weight, and self-esteem? Start there. Know those answers and get excited to know what to do with them.
Beat the winter blues. Lose those baggy winter duds. Pull out the bikini. This intensive 5-week program is aimed to jumpstart your path to weight loss and wellness. This is NOT a quick fix. It’s a simple and easy-to-do program to guide you toward a whole foods system that supports long-term healthy weight. Nutrient-dense whole foods reduce cravings for sweets and carb-rich binges.
Begin the process NOW of detoxing your body with whole, real, and seasonal foods. Eliminate foods that cause inflammation that slows you down and leads to weight gain and risk of diseases – caffeine, dairy, sugar, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, and processed, pre-packaged and pre-cooked foods.
Clear your functional living and work spaces to provide a sanctity of wholesome eating. Learn what to do with feelings you’re left with when you don’t feed them to cover them up.
Start with a 5- or 9-day accelerated nutrition rejuvenation that let’s you get the junk out then move toward whole foods for a lifetime of a healthy weight and wellness.
