The Best Resources for a Healthy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’re off to a healthy and happy 2018 so far. The first week of January has been incredibly frigid here, but it’s given me some time to hunker inside and get down some of my goals for the year ahead. I prefer “goals” to “resolutions”, and I also very […]

How to Navigate the Holiday Party Overload Healthfully!

Happy December, everyone! I love this time of year so much… the lights, the music, the general cheer and coziness… It makes me so happy. And part of the cheer and merriment comes in the form of about a bazillion holiday parties. It can feel like every weekend in December has another party or three […]

Intuitive Eating for Moms is Not Bullsh*t

Did that title catch your eye, or what? It’s not like most of the other titles around this blog, but there’s a reason for that… This post was inspired by a Facebook Live video titled: “Intuitive Eating for Moms is Kinda Bulls**t.” I want to respond to that video today, and explain a few things. First, […]

If There Are No Bad Foods, Why Manage Sweets?

I once read a really interesting critique of one of my favorite books. The book takes the same “no good/bad foods” approach, that I do, which is one of the many reasons I love it. It also talks about ways to manage sweet stuff, and how to find a moderate balance with it (again, very […]

Exercise is NOT Punishment for Eating

Raise your hand if you’ve ever uttered a version of this at some point: “I’m gonna have to spend all day on the treadmill to burn off that cheesecake!” (Raises hand. Yup, me too.) It’s become second nature to link our exercise to our food choices. We say it partially in jest, but underneath, we’re kind of […]

Last week, I watched as Facebook-land threw all manner of diet-industry craziness at a close friend of mine.  She’s been having difficulty with her weight lately (due primarily to medical reasons, which of course no one on her Facebook feed was qualified to speak to – including me), and was venting her frustration and looking […]

Sugar Addiction is Not Real

Everywhere you look, someone seems to be talking about “sugar addiction.” They’re either talking about doing a sugar detox to help get over their “addiction”, or they’re talking about how they don’t keep sweets in the house because they’re “addicted” and can’t control themselves around it. Many people also completely forbid their children from having sugar […]

Why Calorie Counting Sucks, and How to Move Away From It

I know, I know… counting calories is a very popular way of managing weight. It’s been touted as “the answer” to weight loss for probably decades! Many people want to be healthier, and for many people that involves weight loss. While it’s true that we need to take in less than we burn to lose […]

How to Escape the Diet Cycle Nightmare

No one actually enjoys going on a diet, do they? Diets are just a means to an end, a temporary misery that we endure in the name of losing weight or getting healthy. But they’re not actually all that temporary are they? Sure, one specific diet might be, but then we end up turning to […]

You Don’t Need A Freaking Detox to Lose Weight!

Ahh, another new year.  The first week of January means we get to take stock of our various goals and make new plans for how we want to achieve them. It also, unfortunately for my sanity, means seeing a depressing number of awful quick-fix weight loss schemes coming across every possible social media feed. As if […]
