When I decided at the beginning of January to lose 10lbs, and committed to doing it by taking a look at my habits and making real changes, I honestly thought it would be an easy journey.
Heck, when the first week I lost almost half of the weight I planned to! Not to mention, I am the FOUNDER of a healthy meal service- I have access to healthy balanced meals!
But, it wasn't about the healthy meals I was eating, it was about the times I was eating and wasn't actually hungry and the "why" behind that. When you start digging into that, you start discovering yourself (which is crazy because I thought I already had).
It's different for everyone, but for me I am facing up to the uncomfortable moments of life without a snack to keep me company. It felt impossible before, but now it feels liberating!

3. Throw food away. This is a tough one for many, including me sometimes! However, eating all the food in front of you when you are already past full does not...
We don’t even realize how important what we put in our bodies is….
I am rarely so black and white about nutrition. For a lot of foods and lifestyle habits, there is a gray area; a lot of subjectivity.
But I also love it when things are super simple when they are really clear.
Ann Wigmore makes it really clear here; food is either medicine or poison. That’s it. No ifs, ands or buts. There is medicine, and there is poison.
Now, it’s ok to eat “poison” now and again. This isn’t the cyanide type poison that is going to kill you instantly, as you well know if you’ve had a Cheeto or a bowl of ice cream.
You don’t have to actively think before taking a bite of cheeseburger “my God, I’m about to eat poison!”, that would stunt your life, but you should have awareness around the food you eat. Acknowledge that a daily fast food run isn’t your medicine.
The message here is to really focus on our diets consisting...
