my philosophy

I like to keep it simple + easy.

I take a whole food, clean eating approach and focus on providing you with easy ways to upgrade your diet, detox on a daily basis and implement new, healthier habits.  There’s a ton of  information out there- much of which is contradictory, so I wanted to create a space that offers nutrition education, the truth about fad diets and trendy new foods, as well as loads of great tips, tricks and tools to live your best self.

Contrary to what many believe, it IS possible and doable to lose weight, live a healthy lifestyle, and still enjoy all of your favorite things. You can still enjoy dinner out with friends, a weekend away, a glass (or 2) of wine with dinner… while remaining on your healthy journey and looking and feeling incredible.

It’s all about finding a balance that works for you.

I also take a holistic approach to health and wellness, as it’s important to upgrade all areas of your life.

Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? Does that drink at happy hour lead to many drinks and unhealthy food choices?It’s crucial to understand how every aspect of your life affects your health + happiness as a whole. What you put your body affects all aspects of your life and vice versa.

My approach is not to dwell on calories, carbs, fats, and proteins. It is not to create lists of restrictions or good and bad foods. Instead, it’s important to identify the best foods for your body, how to use food as fuel and how to nourish yourself from the inside out. And of course… how to indulge joyfully and mindfully- all of which are part of creating a happy, healthy life that is fun and rewarding.

✨ By upgrading your diet and daily habits, you will upgrade your life ✨

    Andrea,It was such a light bulb moment for me, too, when I reaziled how much of my bingeing and overeating was due to sugar. I am sugar sensitive. When I eat sugar, a switch turns on in my brain and I turn into the tasmanian devil eating sugar until I’m sick. When I don’t eat sugar, the switch turns off, and I find my true hunger. You may be someone who is sugar sensitive, too. A resource on sugar sensitivity is Kathleen des Maison’s book, Potatoes not Prozac. It was very helpful to me to understand the scientific background behind sugar addiction something my work doesn’t cover. Once you know you’re sugar sensitive and you need to abstain, how do you do it? And for life? That’s what I do. I help sugar sensitive women implement sugar sobriety in their lives emotionally unhooking from the need for sugar. Best, Karly
