Most people are aware that having a smooth running digestive system is important, but do you know why it is important? Are you aware of the impact that digestion has on controlling your weight? I admit that I had no idea the impact that it played for a long time. I knew that I needed to eat fiber to help “keep things moving” but I didn’t really know how important it was! If your digestive system becomes sluggish due to lack of fiber and/or water it is unable to process and dispose of the food properly. This leads to several things: 1) You begin to feel very bloated in your stomach which makes many of us believe that we are just getting fatter. 2) You become...

I am very frequently asked, “How many calories should I eat in a day?”  However, there is no one right answer to that question.   The amount of calories (or energy) that your body needs is dependent upon a number of factors such as age, height, weight, activity level, etc. Yet, even if you were to assume the same calorie intake as a female of the same age, height, weight and activity level as you, that number still might not be correct. Why is that? Because each of our bodies reacts to food in a different way. Some people do well on a high carbohydrate meal plan, while others are carb sensitive and require a lower carbohydrate meal plan. Do you take medication? That can also play...

I have been receiving quite a few emails lately asking me what HIIT training is.

Almost every day I get asked, “What is the best protein to drink?” The truth? I don’t think there is any single protein that is “best” for everyone. There are thousands of different brands, flavors, types (whey, casein, veggie), etc. If you are trying to decide what protein would be best for you, I would start with taking a look at what you are using the protein powder for; post workout, meal replacement, snack, muscle repair, baking, etc.  Once you have figured out the use, then you can start breaking it down based on dietary composition. Are you looking for a milk based protein (whey or casein), a vegan or vegetarian plant based protein, egg protein, beef protein (yes, they really make this) or even a...

What are the best foods to eat? This is a great question that my clients often ask me. However, there is not one straight forward answer. There are a lot of great foods out there; oatmeal, beans/lentils, sweet potatoes, greek yogurt, salmon, fresh berries, green vegetables and nuts/seeds. But what qualifies a food as “The Best”? Many people might answer with, the food is deemed healthy, it is packed with vitamins and minerals, it does not have refined sugars, or it is low in calories. All of those would be great responses! Yet, not one of those responses could specifically tell you what the best foods for you are! We are each our own person. Some of my ‘best foods’ might not be the same for...
