I cannot say it enough....
Eating seasonally is a fantastic way to optimize your health!!
I won't write a lengthy post here because it is all in the video, but your body KNOWS what season it is. It knows that the foods growing around you contain the nutrients it needs now.
Look for the seasonal foods in your produce section, try some new recipes and if you are St Louis local check out our fall menu here!
Chemistry professors know a lot about aging.
They don't necessarily care about what aging means in terms of looks, of course. They are all wrapped up in chemical reactions, but I do, and I learned a lot from them during my years as a student of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology.
Here is what I do know after years of chemistry classes and personal research...
All the known secrets of aging in reverse are found in these few things...
A diet full of colorful plant foods
Nutrient dense fats such as avocado, olive oil and almonds
A tailored supplement regimen (which we will be digging into soon in the No-Diet Diet Club)
Regular exercise (HIIT is best, follow me on Instagram for a lot more tips on this!)
Biohacking (a new one I am experimenting with and will be sharing with you!)
If you have any questions about these, comment and let me know!
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!
Pictured is the most delicious lunch I ate the other day.
This is a peak into how I balance my eating and what I eat on a typical day (although not all of this was typical, coughwinecough.)
Such a delicious lunch with tons of whole, plant foods- just the way I like it!
Local, #grassfed beef sliders
Seafood salad with avocado
Wine, because #winenot ?!
What did you have for lunch?
Healthy is different for everyone!
Start by figuring out what kind of balance will work for you in your life.
What adjustments do you need to make to feel good and look the way you want?
I am strict in certain areas: no gluten, low sugar, no fast food.
I am loose in others: wine, cheese, gluten free pasta.
This balance allows me to feel good, enjoy my food and look the way I want
This balance works beautifully for me in my life, what will work for you?
You hear about it everywhere. You've seen the success stories from people who have counted calories or counted macros and really crushed their goals, but will it work for you? And where do you even begin?
In this video, you'll hear my honest opinion about counting calories, macros etc. and if I think you should try it or not.
Even more just like this in the No-Diet Diet Club!
