Intuitive Eating is an approach developed to help people heal from the side effects of chronic dieting. An intuitive eater is defined as a person who “makes food choices without experiencing guilt or an ethical dilemma, honors hunger, respects fullness and enjoys the pleasure of eating.” Intuitive eating is not a weight loss technique, however it promotes mindful eating and can teach you how to eat in moderation which ultimately could lead to weight loss.
In our recent trip to LA we attended a Tony Robbins seminar where we developed strategies for overcoming our self-limiting beliefs. You can find out more about our experience with Tony Robbins in our recent write-up about the Unleash The Power Within seminar. The whole experience was eye-opening and gave us a lot of useful tools to implement in our own lives as well as with our clients. Listen in as we dive deeper into why self-limiting beliefs are often the biggest obstacles in our path to success and what you can do to overcome them.
You’re gonna love this super simple chocolate almond butter protein shake recipe! ? Confession, I am a nut butter fiend! I have about 5 different jars of nut butters all going at the same time; coconut butter, cashew butter, peanut butter, almond butter…you get the picture. I’m obsessed! Luckily I have Betsy’s Best to feed my passion. Aside from it’s deliciously creamy texture and taste, the other thing I love about nut butters is how satisfied I feel after a spoonful. All I need is a healthy dollop of fat in my breakfast smoothie and I am good to go all morning long!

Nic once committed to training for an Ironman just so that he could get those much coveted 6-pack abs. To some of us that might sound crazy but I know in the past I’ve approached changing my physique with the same mindset. Excessive exercise was not the solution though. Sure both Nic and I were successful in dropping some pounds and our bodies looked better, but at the cost of a TON of time, aches and pains in our bodies and creating a terrible belief system in respect to our relationship with food. Like most people we eventually came to the realization that the abs weren’t worth it. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t another way. Read on to find out more about Nic’s quest to find those 6-pack abs without the Ironman effort or training!

Reason no.836 why I love #FlexibleEating: This recipe is for 4lbs of pork butt cooked in beef broth and seasoned with warm spices. I made these carnitas street tacos that were (no exaggeration) as good as the $50 plate from my all time favorite high end SoCal Mexican restaurant. Try them out and I promise, you and your team of minions will be fighting over who gets the leftovers!
Despite 45 million Americans going on diets every year and spending in excess of $33 billion on weight loss products, 2/3 of the population is overweight or obese. Our nation needs education about nutrition, now more than ever! Being overweight doesn’t just provide physical limitations and health issues, it can cause problems in our relationships, making people feel self-conscious and disconnected from the person they truly feel they are.
