As a Certified Weight Management Coach and Certified Personal Fitness Chef, I've developed a passion for all things healthy. With my coaching I offer, I educate, encourage and promote the importance of a healthy mindset while creating healthier options for women. I help you change their eating and understand the value of a healthy lifestyle. I help them focus on establishing and balancing a healthy lifestyle to replace their favorite foods with healthier and tastier choices. If you want to transition to a whole foods, plant-based diet, which is simply a diet that focuses on eating whole or unprocessed plant foods, decrease meats, fish, dairy products and eliminate highly processed foods, let's get started. This is not necessarily a vegetarian or vegan diet but reducing animal products, meat, eggs, dairy and fish to 10 percent of your total daily caloric intake can help eliminate heart disease, reverse diabetes and prevent some cancers.
I use my training to help you redefine the American Standard Diet as you transition to include more whole foods ensuring that it meets the daily requirements for fruits and veggies.
BALANCE IS THE KEY!
Learning when to say yes, and how to say no.
- No, you do not have to skip every event and say no to girl’s night out, but you may have to be intentional and call ahead to see how they can accommodate your nutritional needs and limit your drinks.
- No, you do not have to skip that piece of cake but you may have to say, “Not today,” to that second slice.
- No, you don’t have to drive past every fast food place when you are not prepared BUT you have to be super selective depending on your goals.
MINDSET PROPELS YOU TO STAY THE COURSE IN THIS HEALTHY LIFESTYLE JOURNEY.
A healthy mind leads to healthy decision, healthy decisions leads to a healthy lifestyle.
The most challenging part of living a healthier lifestyle is mentally accepting that it is possible. All the changes such as cutting back on sugar, bread, rice, pasta, sodas, etc. can seem pretty unachievable when your mind and body has become accustom to those pleasures. People often wonder why smokers continue to risk their health when there’s a Surgeon General warning on the label. People also wonder why would a drug addict experiment with substances that are know to kill them. If you said, "addiction," you are absolutely correct. The same addiction that drug addicts and smokers have is the same addiction that you have with food. If you think this is incorrect, when was the last time you tried to go without your favorite food or drink? Give it a try and see how hard it can be. It’s not that you can’t go without it, it’s that when the urges come you don’t feel like you can go without it. Changing your mindset is where we will begin and living longer, not just for you but for your loved ones is where we will end.
No matter where you are in the process of your journey, always LOVE and celebrate yourself every step of the way! Change what you can and be happy about that! From this day forward, please know healthy is not a size or a number, it's a lifestyle.
Here's to a clean bill of health!
