The number one struggle I hear from my clients is their weight. There is not one day that goes by that I am not touched by the fear, guilt, and confusion of my over-worked, over-stressed, and under nourished clients. It amazes me how much time, energy, and effort goes into their weight loss regimens without any reward in return. I have clients exercising almost every day and cutting everything out of their diets to just maintain the weight they have.
The biggest, most shocking, myth in weight management is that exercise is the most important factor in losing weight. Exercise has many proven health benefits including building strength and flexibility, increasing circulation, and decreasing stress but exercise is not for weight loss. The second biggest myth in weight management is that exercise gives you permission to eat more. If you take in more calories than you expend, you will gain, not lose weight. Let these simple truths guide you to your weight goals and stop killing yourself at the gym.
Stop struggling, start eating! My Eating Free™ program focuses on nutrition and lifestyle; selecting and preparing whole foods, eating what you like, and knowing how much of it to eat. Instead of running to the gym with that spare hour you have, spend it shopping for tasty, healthy foods that will not only fuel your exercises but also guide you to your weight goals. Struggling to your goals is sometimes necessary, but make it painless and do it with grace while Eating Free.
