I believe food is essential to people’s culture, religion, social life, emotions and overall well-being. I also believe that food is meant to be enjoyable and nourishing to both our mind and body. However, as obesity and other chronic diseases are steadily rising, extreme and fad diets are as well. These types of diets make us fatigued, frustrated, and malnourished. We get trapped in the vicious cycle of losing weight only to regain that weight right back.
The truth is, losing weight is not about willpower. If our diet is not practical to our real lives or leaves us feeling deprived or unsatisfied, it will be nearly impossible to keep up those eating habits long-term no matter how much willpower we have. In fact, statistics tell us that 95% of people who go on diets will regain all the weight back within 2 years. It is not because we are weak or lack self-control, it is because these types of diets are unsustainable.
That is why I am here to help you break this pattern and create new, healthy habits around nutrition and fitness that are sustainable, flexible, and realistic to YOUR lifestyle. Yes, you can eat foods you love, not feel guilty, and still lose weight!
I am not here to throw unsupported, gimmicky quick fixes on you. I use an evidence-based approach, so you can be certain you are receiving the latest and most accurate information for optimal health and weight loss. My main priorities are to help people gain the knowledge and skills to successfully lose weight long-term, build a healthy relationship with food, and feel happier, healthier, and more confident.
