Diets don't work try this instead

I was interviewed on Fox 2 Now recently about New Year's resolutions.

Kim asked, "how do you make a New Years diet easy to stick to?"

I told her by not going on a diet! Seriously, you don't need another diet!

No one does. We've all tried one, and rarely do they work.

You need something practical and realistic, especially during this hectic time of year.

What is more practical and realistic than healthy balanced meals, designed by a nutritionist, ready to eat, and delivered to your door?

Potions & Powders

I'm sure you've heard of a few: maca, matcha, ashwaghanda, spirulina, dandelion root....to name a few. But what the heck are all of these and do you actually need to be eating them?

The answer is no, not necessarily! These potions and powders are a nutritionist hackers dream, but totally not necessary for a healthy life.

Maintaining a healthy regular diet is way more important, however if you are a smoothie junkie like me, you may want to try one or two of these out....they have some pretty cool benefits!

3 reasons Why You Should Say No to Sugar!

If you're thinking about cutting back on the sugar this year, here are three reasons why you should:

When sugar is a regular part of your diet, it makes it impossible for your body to break down fat! In fact, you're likely turning all of that sugar into fat.


Sugar accelerates aging, causing you to look older faster.


When you consume sugar, your blood sugar spikes and then plummets which leaves you feeling unnecessarily tired and cranky.

3 Foods That Are Easy to Overdo It On!

1. Frozen yogurt: While this can be a slightly healthier alternative to ice cream, that is what makes it dangerous! We tend to eat more when we know its "healthy-er". Keep your portion small and limit your toppings to one favorite!


2. Popcorn: I too am a fan of all the delicious popcorn flavors you can find everywhere nowadays, and while popcorn is far better than chips or pretzels, it can still be overdone. While popcorn's nutritional stats are decent, it goes down easy and by the handful. Topped with some artificial butter or cheese powder, it can pack a punch of calories without you even realizing it.


3. Peanut butter: Yes, a wonderfully healthy source of fats, fiber and protein, it is also very calorically dense and the serving size can disappear alongside crackers or veggie sticks with two bites. Portion it out ahead of time to be sure you know how much you are eating.

Ask The Nutritionist!

Ask the nutritionist!

Each week, we are doing #askthenutritionist, where we will answer your question of the week, and also take your questions for future editions!

This week's question: “My iron levels are low, should I be taking an iron supplement?”

The answer is not necessarily. There are a few reasons why your iron might be low and you may be able to make tweaks that allow you to bypass iron supplementation. If you have a heavy menstrual flow, you may consider an iron supplement around your time of the month (but no more! Heavy iron supplementation can reduce your absorption of iron from food).

It is also possible you have an issue with absorption in your gut. You may try a few things for this: cutting out gluten (super easy if you use a gluten-free meal service), drinking aloe vera juice, and taking a probiotic. A few dietary tweaks you can make to up your dietary iron include: steamed dark leafy greens (broccoli, spinach, sprouts), red meat, organ meats, and...

Don't let healthy food punish you

Healthy food shouldn't feel like a punishment.

Yet, so often it tastes like one!

Why does healthy equal boring?

Plain chicken with steamed broccoli...

Raw cauliflower dipped in air...

Plain brown rice, hold the salt...

It doesn't have to be that way!

  • Open your spice cabinet
  • Put garlic on everything
  • Grab the pink Himalayan salt
  • Squeeze lemon over the top
  • Grab some fresh herbs to finish

All of these enhance flavor while also enhancing health! It doesn't have to be complicated or time consuming, just delicious.

What diet should I follow?

You have to follow the diet that works for YOU!

Personally, I don't subscribe to any particular diet. Here is what I do...

Finding the best "diet" for me is an ever evolving journey! I love trying new things:
Fasting
High fat
No snacks
Smaller meals

All of this experimenting helps me see what I like best and what fits best in my schedule.

I am constantly learning new things about my body and my health and how I can help my clients apply what I am learning!

What works for you?

What is the best diet for you to follow?

This is what I know...

The best diet to follow is the one that works for you while helping you improve your health!

"Do I need to be following Paleo?"

"Is Keto the healthiest?"

"How do I know if I am eating the best diet for me?"


This "diet" is a way of life. It should be flexible to fit with your schedule.
It should serve you in improving your health, feeling good, having energy and looking the way you want to look.
You don't have to follow any diet that anyone else does, simply do what works best for YOU

You have to do what works for you, or nothing will work!

Seafood salad with avocado
Steak salad
Iced coffee
Wine, because #winenot ?!
