In college I used to have these HUGE cheat days on the weekends after a week of restrictive eating and I would just eat anything and everything in sight because I thought I ‘earned’ it for being good all week. However, through those cycles I actually started to have a terrible relationship with food and my own mindset around what it means to be healthy. Through a lot of trial and error, and lots of work on my own mentality – I love adding in intuitive days to my own week and in my clients. The word in itself helps us disconnect the word from meaning ‘cheating’ on our diet and turns it into simply being mindful of our food.

Feeling overwhelmed by tracking meals that aren’t strictly a protein, carb, and veggie?

Breakdown of when to adjust your macros and by how much. I lay out 3 different scenarios: if you’re looking to maintain, build muscle, or lose fat. Everyone is very different when it comes to the food we require so make sure to listen to your own body first!
