You can boost your mood, strengthen your heart and your biceps in only 30 minutes a day!   But, what if your regular fitness routine started to actually hurt you instead of help you?   What if your workout no longer leaves you feeling energized and strong? What if, instead, you felt exhausted, burnt-out and even injured?   Overtraining is a thing.   And it’s not just among elite athletes either. The average Joe/Jane who just wants to get in shape is not immune to the effects of overtraining.   Overtraining…

Help! I Overeat – and I Don’t Know Why?!

Do you ever start eating when you’re feeling upset or stressed, even though you aren’t even hungry? Do you ever start eating just because it helps you feel better emotionally – kind of like a warm blanket?   If you answered yes to either of these questions, you might be an emotional eater – often combined with the act of binge eating.  People have different ways of handling and managing their feelings and behavior when they’re feeling depressed, stressed, or upset about something.

Is The 80/20 Rule For Nutrition & Exercise A Myth?

You may have heard that abs are made in the kitchen…  Or you may have eaten an extra piece of dessert because you exercised that day, so you feel like you “earned” it dammit!  In order to see results at the gym, lose weight or even maintain overall health, we’re told that it’s an 80/20 balance.

Detox Diets and Body Cleanses: Are They Even Safe?

Detox diets…body cleanses…colon cleanses…bowel cleanses…  You’ve probably heard all of these terms used in reference to “ridding your system of unhealthy toxins” — but what do these terms actually mean?   Do you really need to be on a ‘detox diet’ or ‘cleansing’ your body?   Are programs and products marketed as detoxes and cleanses even safe to do?  To start us off, all of these terms get a LOT of hype in the media, and people tend to use various terms interchangeably, which makes it especially confusing for consumers.   So what IS the difference between a Detox Diet and a Cleanse?   Generally,…

What is a “Health Halo” and are my foods wearing one?

If you’re trying to eat healthier, you already know you should be including lots of fruit, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains.    But when you step into a grocery store, things get a bit more complicated. The majority of store shelves are crammed with a tempting assortment of pre-packaged and convenience foods.    So, how do shoppers know which foods are healthy options?    Most people turn to nutrition and health claims found on food packaging labels to help them decide which products to pick and which to skip.    You may think you’re doing a good thing adding “healthful” sounding foods to your cart…

How to Beat Negative Self-Talk and Limiting Beliefs

A little self-criticism is a normal shared human mental pattern, and can even be healthy for the most part. But, we can also just as easily open the door to that overly vocal “negative nelly” voice in our head.    However, if your negative voice is preventing you from doing what you want or need to do in your life, then it has to get booted back out the door. This kind of mental chatter has no right to set up shop in your mind.   Deeply held negative beliefs, especially when they’re firmly rooted in your unconscious, stress you out, damage relationships and…

I had tried every kind of weight loss program after having my two babies and I truly believed that if I ate as little as possible it would be helpful for me to achieve my goal – I was wrong! When I first had my free consultation with Terri she told me I was “eating too little” and that was causing my body to store fat. I was skeptical but desperate so I decided to try the 10 Weeks To Wow! Weight…
