As we welcome what I call “wellness season” I have a gentle reminder to help you succeed:⁠ Be calorie aware, not calorie obsessed.⁠
How to be calorie aware?

Focus on building a balanced, colorful plate with my 4-Part Meal Formula:⁠⠀

  • ½ the plate of produce, fruits, vegetables, non-starchy and starchy (we all have unique needs)⁠⠀
  • ¼ their plate protein to help with blood sugar regulation and hunger management…⁠⠀
  • ¼ their plate “Joy Foods!” foods like rice, avocado, and nuts!⁠⠀
  • Bonus, make sure there is something green to nourish the body. ⁠⠀⁠⠀
Additional tips?
  • DO glance at food labels to estimate how many calories your meal has (aim for 400-600 calories). DON’T tediously count daily calories.
  • DO build balanced meals so you can have consistency in your eating routine. DON’T graze and nibble every hour.
  • DO monitor hunger, and if you feel peckish sooner than you thought you should, drink water and see if the hunger drifts away. If it does, carry on. If it doesn’t, have a balanced snack of ~200 calories with a combo of protein & fiber (berries and nuts).
  • DO tune in to your intuition. Some days will require more food than others, DON’T obsess over diet rules. Our body is smarter than we can ever know.
Easy peasy? It can be easier than it looks. ⁠If you want help, you are welcomed to join my 30-Day Weight Loss program running throughout the year.⠀Day 1 can begin with your first step. Email me with interest.
