Self-Help Junkie

Who else is a Self-Help junkie?

I have been hooked since I was young. I was watching an Oprah show after school and it was centered around the topic and I just knew I wanted more.

The idea of "improving myself" like you would make updates to your home (weird analogy? ) was so fascinating to me.

I don't know when I bought my first self-help book was, but I now have a collection of them by my bed.

But for me, self-help isn't limited to that book collection. It shows up all over my life- like my obsessive journaling and my endless quest to be the healthiest I can be.

The one area of self-help I feel I have definitely mastered is meal prep.

This is also the area I have seen THE MOST impact on my life and my clients lives.

When it comes to losing weight, feeling confident, removing temptation, having freedom at meal times, having more time and saving money- learning to meal prep will instantly and seamlessly give you all of them.

It won't take years or months to see change in your life, it...

Making a change is HARD!

Making a change is HARD!


Whether you are changing houses, toothpastes or overhauling your diet, your brain does not love change.


Make it easier by being prepared.


This is the ONE step I see most people completely skip when they decide to lose weight.


You choose a goal weight, maybe even a diet you want to follow and then each day you wake up and have to figure out how to stick to that diet while being faced with all your old habits.


In that scenario, your brain has NO capacity to form new habits!


You are basically in fight or flight stress mode, just trying to get by with a healthy meal while your old habits work to keep you doing the same old.


To really make a change, planning HAS to occur.


Your healthy meals HAVE TO be ready for you so that old habits are easy to let go of.


This is WHAT WE DO in The Meal Prep Course.


We get you planned, prepared and relaxed, so when temptation arises it is NOT A PROBLEM.


Those new habits form fast and naturally. No fighting or resisting.

The only support you need is your own!

A client reached out to me the other day.

She said, “my family just does not support my new way of eating. Making this shift is so hard sometimes I don’t know why I am doing it.”

I told her the only support she really needs is her own!

The people in your life probably won't support you making a change at first.

They only know the old you, not the new you!

But you know the new you, you believe in that person and your ability to become that person... And that is what’s really important.

I asked her “what else can you feel in those moments when you see your family not support your new diet?"

How about pride in yourself for making the change that most will never dare to do?

What about self-love because you are doing something awesome for yourself?

What about gratitude for your family that loves you?

Those are all feelings to try on when you are feeling the challenge, when you are feeling down.

You can do this!

I am so proud of you for just getting started.

When was the last time you paused and took a look at how far you have come?

STOP FOR A SECOND.

When was the last time you paused and took a look at how far you have come?

How much you have grown since last year, how much weight you have lost, how many dietary changes you've made, how much more mature you are than yesterday ().

This plate pictured here is the sign I made for the original Basically It Meals before it was Basically It Meals.

4 years ago, it was called "The $6 Lunch". I would bulk batch my own meal prep and then take it to work each week and sell it to my coworkers. I hung this plate up at my cubicle to let them know when I had a batch to sell.

That is how far I've come.....from $6 lunch offered to coworkers, to full time business owner, to online course purveyor, to producer and TV personality.

We are all capable of INCREDIBLE CHANGE but so often we are stuck in "I haven't done enough", "I am not enough", "I will never get there".

So, stop for just one second today and give yourself a pat on the back for all the BAD ASS work you have put in!

I am so...

Dietary Shifts

I spoke with an awesome group of people in a weight loss program the other night.

These people are making HUGE dietary shifts.

Something most of us will talk about, dream about, but never quite stick to.

These people were truly inspiring.

They wanted to know how to make the transition easier, less painful.

They wanted to know how to stick with it for years to come.

I told them this kind of change takes some planning.  When we leave decisions food decisions until we are hungry, our brain is not capable of making a conscious decision.

When we're hungry we switch to survival mode, and we will eat the most calorie dense thing we can get our hands on.

We have to make those decisions ahead of time. Make them when we are in a clear-headed place with our end result in mind.

When we can do that, success is inevitable.

And the best way to do that is by meal prepping.

Your week is planned ahead, all your food decisions are made, and that way when you are hungry and tired and you open that fridge...

The Brain Warrior Training!

When it comes to my clients achieving their goals, I hear it all the time...

I'm thinking about it
I'm not sure I want to
I just don't know if I can
I don't know if I have what it takes
It can be hard to believe in yourself.

Especially if you have failed in the past.

You may think you don't have enough willpower.

Or you don't have the right resources.

Or you just don't know if you can afford it.

But you know where all of these come from?

A lack of belief in yourself.

If you believed in yourself, you would know that:

-You don't have to use willpower when you are committed to yourself.
-You have all the resources you need right in front of you.
-You have the money. You do. You just don't believe that you will follow through on your purchase and thus your money will be wasted.

If these sound familiar, then start with Neal's Bran Warrior Training.

Start changing your brain at a molecular level from an expert in behavioral hacking, Neal Phalora.

In this 3 part training, Neal shows you how to...

It's time to take your health back!

When I was getting my nutrition degree, I was sucked into a common belief: that American's health is failing not by choice, but by force.


This attitude bleeds into our culture and tells everyone "You can play the blame game, too".

I spent many years being angry at fast food, being angry at big AG, being angry with the food companies hiring chemists to manufacture foods that could hijack our taste buds.

How could they do this to unsuspecting, innocent American's and steal their health?

I felt powerless. I imagine you have felt this way, too.
There is nothing I can do to save our health.
But then I began to realize, my health is in my hands.
Your health is in your hands.

America's health does not lie with big AG or in a factory farm. It lies with each individual American.

YOU are the only one with the power to get healthier or sicker.

And that is not me BLAMING you, that is me EMPOWERING you.

You have a choice; and there are actually quite a few out there.

If you're busy, low on cash,...

Stick to your diet effortlessly

Diets don't work...
Unless you have a plan.
If you want to overhaul how you eat, you're going to need to put some planning in.

When I was in my size 8 pants, I would wake up and think "today will be different," but it wasn't because my fridge was the same, my pantry was the same, my habits had not shifted at all.

To lose the weight, to make a dietary change, you have to plan for it.

What foods will you be eating?
How are you going to get them on your table?
What is for lunch?
What is for dinner?
What are you snacking on?

You need to know this before saying "I am going to make a change,"" will actually result in a change.

I can help you do this, just like I have helped so many others do this.

Take it from Denise who has been able to effortlessly stick to keto since she took The Meal Prep Course.

"Since taking the course, sticking to keto has been so easy for me. I am losing weight and keeping it off." - Denise, Life Coach
