Intuitive Eating is an approach developed to help people heal from the side effects of chronic dieting.

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.

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!
