Don’t Give in to “Easy”

It’s easy to put things off.

It’s easy to think, “I just don’t want to make the effort,” leaving you stuck in the same situation.

Maybe you have just accepted that this is the new size of you.

But there is a pair of skinny jeans or a favorite dress in your closet that is a constant reminder of what you once were.

Or a photograph from days long gone, where you really looked your best.

I remember trying on a pair of jeans of mine and wondering how I ever got my legs in to them.

They are loose on me now.

Sometimes we can never get back to the size we once were, and that’s okay. But we can get close. Closer than we are now.


The real issue with “yo-yo” dieting – lose some, gain more – occurs when we don’t effectively deal with insulin resistance. That comes from restricting calories without changing the quality of food. Like using Slim Fast to diet: you are essentially starving yourself and drinking a sugary liquid. Insulin is still being heavily released, so insulin resistance continues.

Insulin resistance is when our cells stop responding to insulin, and refuse to take it in to reduce our blood glucose. Like a bully, the pancreas just sends out more. Insulin resistance increases as we age and our hormones change through the phases of menopause. It also increases when we don’t sleep well, are stressed in life and when we try to “workout” the way we did when we were younger. Combine that all together and you have the perfect recipe for belly fat. 😱

When we remove carbs, eat within an 9 -10 hour window and fuel on meat & healthy fats, our bodies return to their best functioning mode. Less insulin is released, so the body is able to burn fat for energy needs. The cells are no longer bombarded, so they are more willing to take any excess insulin in.

With Meaty Low Carb eating, your body has an opportunity to heal, to burn off un-needed stores of fat, to get stronger – and the result is energy, vitality, and health.

It’s an amazing feeling just to feel great again:

🌀 To get a solid night’s sleep

🌀 To see the scale finally budge

🌀 To feel eager to get out of bed

🌀To get outside in the sunshine

🌀To not have to hide behind guilt or shame

🌀And yes, get in to those skinny jeans

I’m not offering snake oil in a bottle here. This isn’t a “quick fix” though you will very quickly start seeing and feeling the results. Here’s what a client shared in our private Facebook Group:

Put in 4 weeks of effort with me through my Kickstart Results 28 Day Challenge. You will feel much better and won’t want it to end. And it won’t have to, because you will have all the tools you need to continue forever more.

If 4 weeks isn’t enough time because you have numerous health issues, food addiction or self-sabotaging habits that need to be addressed so they don’t come back to bite you, then sign up for my 90 Day Results program. This will give us plenty of one-on-one time to dig deep and uncover what has been holding you back and develop strategies to get you moving toward a healthier, head-to-toe you.

You will be able to become the healthiest you ever – in a sustainable way – meaning you don’t ever need to stop. More than just food, this is a lifestyle of wellness, in every sense of the word.

It’s an easy way to live – focused on enjoying life, not on eating. It’s about feeling amazing, and knowing that you are giving your body everything that it needs to fully thrive.
