Your body is ever changing. Having a healthy metabolism is the key to keeping busy ladies energized and feeling your best! Learning how to plan consistent meals throughout the day in a way that actually fits your lifestyle - GAME CHANGER! These meals should be nutrient dense and help maintain blood sugar levels. This will help reduce cravings and keep you feeling satisfied.
The biochemical reactions brought on by our metabolism enable us to release and use energy from carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and alcohol.2.
Your metabolism doesn’t run efficiently without you treating it properly. With the right vitamins, minerals and enzymes in your meals, your metabolism will be able to operate to it’s full potential.
Insulin is released in your body to help balance blood sugar but it also decreases your bodies ability to burn fat. That’s why knowing how to eat meals in ways that balance your blood sugar is instrumental in keeping your metabolism working.

Guess what mama? - It’s time to LET IT GO!
The most important step of finding a healthy, happy and confident you is letting go of a person (or body) that you used to have. Let go of a number on the scale that may represent a part of your life that you wish you had back. Maybe that number on the scale represents an awesome time in your life. For me it didn't.
Me at my thinnest weight was not a happy person. I was starving, anxiety ridden and constantly feeling like I wasn't good enough. Yet, after gaining pounds during fertility treatments and then babies - I longed to have that thinnest self back. Regardless of that that thinnest weight represents to you - let it go. It's time to stop shaming yourself for what you think you should be. It's time to embrace your awesome self. Take control of your health and your happiness! It's time to start listening to what your body is telling you. That means it's time to be done with the fad diets. It's time to stop listening to what works for everyone else and start focusing on what's going to make you feel like your best self. It's time to get energized! It's time to enjoy life! It's time to feel amazing and confident in your own skin!! It's time to create your healthiest and happiest lifestyle and make it last forever!! Wooohoo!!
We all have different body dispositions (body type, hormones, etc) that impact what kinds of food will work best to get us the results we are looking for. Long term results. You need the foods that make you feel your best. That means protein, minerals, vitamins, water, and yay! Even CARBS! A year ago I decided to help some of my Fit Mama clients with nutritional counseling using customized meal plans. As I helped them through this process I started to realize how finding your healthiest and happiest self had so much more to do with a way of thinking than just eating "the right" kind of foods. This mentality of mindful eating and learning to feel confident in your healthy life decisions was the foundation of the the Squad program. Squad will teach you to listen to your body. You will learn how your body type can dictate what foods you need and when you need them. Healthy nutrition does not look the same for everyone - so it’s time to take control! You have the power to start owning your health and happiness - right now!!
Are ready to let go of your hang ups? Are you ready to own your new totally awesome life?
