How to break down trigger foods

If you’re in the diet-binge cycle, you’ve got trigger foods.
You know what I mean… the one (or two, or fifty) foods that just make you feel totally cray-cray. The ones that you sweaaarrrr are calling your name from the kitchen cabinets. The betcha-can’t-have-just-one foods. The ones that you feel so crazy about that you eat them specifically just for binges.

A lot of the women that I talk to tell me that they feel totally out of control around food (or fear becoming out of control around food). Oh man, have I been there.

What Happened When I Quit Sugar

What Happened When I Quit Sugar

Sugar is the latest evil in the nutrition world.
I say “latest” because I do believe, like all nutrition facts, that the sugar-free craze will eventually blow over. I do not doubt that sugar wreaks havoc on our systems when consumed in excess- though the point of “excess” is totally different for each person.

My Transition Away From Veganism

My Transition Away From Veganism

I’m feeling super called to write about this.

What I’ve been eating has been changing majorly in the last few weeks - and it feels totally natural.
Soooooo, about 5-6 years ago, I decided to try on vegetarianism. It was something I’d thought about here and there, and one day (sort of out of nowhere) I decided I’d commit to it indefinitely...

Take The Stress Out Of Eating With This One Mindset Shift

It's More Than Just A "Food Issue"

It's More Than Just A "Food Issue"

So much of recovering from disordered eating habits (like emotional eating, food restriction, chronic dieting, exercise addiction, etc.) has to do with the eating itself. For instance, I had to re-learn how to listen to my body for hunger cues, eating when I was hungry and stopping once I was full...

Why Dieting Leads to Disappointment 100% of the Time

Let’s talk about dieting, shall we?

You’ve already heard me rant about how diet culture is everywhere, and how we are being trapped, as a society (and especially as women), to believe that there is something wrong with our bodies and that they need to be changed; our bodies are problems that need to be fixed...
