WHAT’S YOUR HEALTH PHILOSOPHY IN ONE SENTENCE?
I help women lose weight by INCREASING their metabolism instead of DECREASING their calories, carbs, you name it. Sounds more fun, right? K that was 2 sentences but I wanted to emphasize the fun.
WHAT ARE YOUR MUST-HAVE 3 SUPPLEMENTAL FOODS YOU RELY ON?
Acacia fiber, chia seeds, collagen peptides
TELL US YOUR MUST-HAVES IN YOUR DIET
Avocados and cheese. If either aren't in the fridge, it gives me anxiety.
SAME… SO HOW DO YOU STAY HYDRATED ALL DAY?
I fill up a 4-cup mason jar 3 times/day.
WHAT IS A HEALTHY HABIT YOU HOPE MORE PEOPLE CATCH ON TO?
The 12-hour fast. OMG GAME CHANGER. Just leave 12 hours between dinner and breakfast the next day without food. It's easy and you'll see a crazy improvement in your digestion and bloating.
SPILL YOUR FAVORITE SELF-CARE REGIMEN:
Mornings are important. This is where I set the tone. I do a 12-hour fast, drink a ton of water in the morning, meditate for 5-20 minutes (I love Wayne Dyer or Gabby Bernstein meditations), drink coffee on my porch, and get going.
ONCE A WEEK FOR MY HEALTH I...
…make it to workout class. I'm not great about workout motivation, and this makes me workout HARD at least once a week.
MY GO-TO WORKOUT:
BEST HEALTHY FOOD OPTION ON-THE-GO:
Poke or Chipotle! I usually get a salad and skip the rice or get half rice. The Poke Spot downtown does zucchini noodles and cauliflower rice, too, which is amazing.
