I’ve hesitated to write this for a while but I’ve been getting so many questions about how I lost weight so here goes.

When I first started my business as a nutrition coach, I said yes to everything. Every opportunity to see a new client, to speak to a new group of people - I was there. Which I believe is how you should start a business: get out there, get experience, figure out what y...

Oftentimes, my clients tell me that in general, they know what they need to do in order to reach their goals, but they fail at the follow-through. I spend a lot of time thinking about what it takes to stick with a plan and be successful.
