In this blog series we are discussing five important tips that will help you with your weight management. Are you ready for number three? This one might surprise you! 


You have probably been counting calories, points, fat grams, carbs, or all of the above for longer than you can remember.

You have also probably tried Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Slim Fast, Optifast, Intermittent Fasting, Keto, Atkins, South Beach, or Bright Line eating plans… I know I have. And, IT’S TIME TO STOP.

It’s time to fuel up with nutrient dense, whole foods that can help you reclaim control over your hormones, your energy and your mood. Yes, your hormones, those oh so important compounds circulating around in your blood stream like cortisol, thyroid, insulin, ghrelin, leptin, and even estrogen!

Your body is tired of feeling sluggish and it’s time to feed it some energizing low-glycemic carbs and healthy, satisifying, hormone-balancing fats.

If you aren’t taking a multi-vitamin, omega supplements, a probiotic, or digestive enzymes, you should be. Our food supply is severely depleted of the nutrients we need and our bodies have been robbed of the nutrients it needs to perform at its best. It is time to FEED ourselves, not RESTRICT ourselves.

These days, I follow a low-carb diet filled with nourishing, non-inflammatory grains, occasionally fruit that provides energy, and tons of brain-boosting fats that fill me up and leave me feeling full and satisfied and focused for hours.

Too many carbs and sugars will NOT support your weight loss. Some high-fiber fruits (like berries) can satisfy your sweet tooth, fill you up, and won’t spike your blood sugar levels or cause your energy to bottom out later.
