Many people struggle with nutrition because they can't stay on track, follow-through, or stay on the wagon. They go for days, weeks, maybe months on a good path and then fall off, and stay off. In my nutrition practice, I don’t teach diets, I teach you to stay on the healthy path for good (and I teach balance: that it's okay to fall off!)
What other skills I want you to know:
-I want you to be able to easily eat whole foods + recognize processed foods [Read 5 Reasons You Need Whole Foods]
-I want you to learn to be mindful of what is working (or not) for your body [Read a Surprising Weight Loss Strategy]
-I want you to be able to get 'back on the wagon' easily [Get the tools & invest so you'll never put your trust in another diet or need a nutritionist ever again]
To answer the question of this blog right away.
The reason you clicked on it. How to get back on the wagon when I’ve already screwed up so bad?!
The easiest, simplest way to get back on the wagon is…
To get back on.
We’ve been taught that ‘failure’ in our diet means that we are a failure.
That is the diet mindset creeping in, prying its chains into you, creating guilt and shame and stress. Read: [Why You Don’t Need Willpower] for more on the diet industry and how it’s affecting us, and how to get yourself out of it.
You don’t have to see 'eating poorly' or ‘making a bad choice’ as falling off the wagon, never to return. You can see it simply as a side step, away from what you want and away from what feels good, only to be conscious of that and return to eating healthy, because it feels good. Don’t over think it.

What mindset shifts I want for you:
-I want you to understand that diets are not the way, and it is a false trap every time. Read: [A Surprising Weight Loss Strategy]
-I want you to understand and believe and trust that you are your own guru (especially when it comes to food)
-I want you to understand and believe and and feel that your body is in charge (not diet books, not Dr. Google, not your friends or family, not the TV ads, not the food marketing)
-I want you to understand that nourishment over calorie-counting is the fast-track to health and sanity when it comes to food
