Shifting Your Diet

If you are obese or overweight you know you’ve got to start making some shifts in your thinking, eating, activity, and overall lifestyle. And that can be really, really, really hard. What do you eat? How do you deal with cravings? Should you join a gym, go or a walk, or hit the yoga mat? How do you maintain a social life? Let’s start with what is likely to have the biggest impact on your weight: what you eat and how you eat it.

Here’s my food philosophy: focus on eating real, whole, unprocessed foods. Eat a lot of vegetables. There is a lot of scientific evidence that animal products should not be a large part of your diet.

Pretty simple, right? That could apply to many different “diets” including Atkins, paleo, Weight Watchers, keto, whole food plant based, South Beach…

You might have a specific eating plan you want to follow. Or, maybe you have a specific eating plan your doctor or registered dietician wants you to follow. Or, you just don’t know where to start. Regardless of your personal starting point, I can help.

No matter which eating plan works best for you, one of the most significant changes you can make is cutting out and/or eliminating processed, refined foods and added sugars.

If you don’t know where to start with improving your eating, an elimination diet or Mark Hyman’s Pegan Diet might be good starting points for our work together.

The easy part: don’t eat a lot of sugar, refined carbs, or processed foods. The hard part: doing it.
