Rather than just suggesting that you don’t let the number on the scale bother you, today’s post dives a little deeper into how you can make the most of this (often inaccurate) measure of progress and other ways to determine the true changes you are experiencing on your fat loss journey.Read More
This week we’re talking check-ins. If you have a nutrition coach or really any kind of coach, you probably have some sort of regularly scheduled touch base with your coach to catch up about how things are going.

Being diligent about your nutrition doesn't mean you have to carry a food scale around with you and say no to every treat offered. It does, however, mean there may be some compromises to make on occasion.Read More

The fitness industry thrives on quick fixes. From challenges promising you’ll “lose ten pounds in a week” and “melt fat in 21 days” to fitness products guaranteeing a six-pack overnight.
