“Will I gain weight on a reverse diet?” This is such a common question that I receive from nutrition clients as well as prospective clients and followers on Instagram. Before I give you a blanket answer, let me tell you this… reverse dieting has different effects for different people. ⁠It often depends on your specific goals, the rate of the reverse, your dieting history, current physical situation (like body weight, body fat, and other related stats),…

Before I tell you about my new reverse dieting course, I want to talk about one mistake I see a lot of women make. They rush from one diet to the next without taking time to plan out their nutrition. You might think you’re ready for your next diet, but you’re most likely not. You probably shouldn’t diet.⁠ ⁠ Not because it’s bad.⁠ Not because you’ll fail.⁠ Not because you shouldn’t want to change your…

Have you ever tried a reverse diet?⁠ What about a how to reverse diet course? ⁠⠀⠀ A reverse diet is useful when you’re trying to change the composition of your body. ⁠⠀⠀ ⁠⠀⠀ Let’s say you’re trying to gain lean muscle aka look like you ACTUALLY workout. Without the proper nutrition and training, gaining muscle will be difficult. ⁠⠀⠀ ⁠⠀⠀ You’ll likely have to eat more calories than usual and actually (gasp!) gain a little…

Hi friends! The Friday 5 is BACK!!! And I’m trying something new and taking The Friday 5 over to Instagram Live! So many people have said that they’ve missed The Friday 5, but after 12+ years of blogging and a lot of changes in my business, you’ve probably noticed that I’m blogging less and “vlogging” more. What can I say, it’s just so much more fun to show up live! Anyway, today, in good ol’…

How many calories do you REALLY need? More than you think you do!⁠ ⁠ I’d guess that a lot of women reading this live in a near-constant state of ‘underfed’. Meaning, they’re following some 1,200 calorie a day guideline they’ve been told will magically help them lose weight and be healthy.⁠ ⁠ Sound familiar?⁠ ⁠ Well, I call BS.⁠ ⁠ Why? Because it’s ridiculous and frankly, I’m tired of seeing beautiful, intelligent women falling for…

This post is sponsored by Project Baseline by Verily, but opinions are my own. One of the most pivotal moments in my journey with Ulcerative Colitis was something my (beloved) gastroenterologist said to me. I had been struggling with Ulcerative Colitis for more than 5 years and hadn’t achieved anything close to remission. I was in a bad place both mentally and physically, so I was losing hope that I would ever live a normal, healthy life again. His words…

Ever felt stuck?⁠ ⁠⠀ I have. And it definitely sucks. But you know what? Even when you’re FEELING ridiculously stuck, like nothing you do will help you lose weight, you’re never ACTUALLY stuck. There is always something that can be done to start seeing progress again.⁠⠀ This is a quick self-assessment you can take to determine if your metabolism is stuck and whether you might need a reverse dieting phase. Ask yourself the following questions:⁠…

Today, I want talk about one of the biggest mistakes I see women make when it comes to dieting. It’s embarking on super long diets – diets that last six months, nine months, a year, or maybe your whole life has been diet. It’s no way to live… mentally, physically, emotionally. Dieting for extended periods of time is not good for a lot of reasons, but I think the number one is that you get…

UNSTUCK YOUR METABOLISM: A FREE masterclass for women who feel like their metabolism is stuck, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do. If you’re like many of my clients, you’ve been dieting for what seems like forever and not seeing results. We often add more cardio, cut all carbs, and STILL nothing happens. It’s the worst feeling when we think we’re doing “everything right,” but no matter…

Let them eat… cake! Here’s my recipe for macro-friendly and gluten-free Anytime Mug Cake! For years, I was a low-fat, low-sugar, low-flavor snack food junkie. I knew all the ‘diet’ brands. And I bought all the ‘healthy’ cookies, muffins, and cakes in an attempt to satisfy my sweet tooth while staying on track to my goals. Looking back, all I can say is, “eeew!” I can distinctly remember the dry, tasteless, cardboard flavor of sugar-free…

Weighing yourself is unneeded stress.⁠ Did you know I only weigh in once a month?⁠ Yep! Just once a month. Usually about 5-6 days after my cycle ends.⁠ And that’s what I recommend to some of my female nutrition clients as well (unless they are doing a reverse diet and then it’s weekly). Weighing yourself is unneeded stress You see, weighing yourself every single day is UNNECESSARY, and it can actually be HARMFUL to your…
