Calories are a measure of the energy our body gets from food. Nutrients, on the other hand, are substances found in food that help our body grow, develop, stay healthy, and live a long life.
When we focus on counting calories, we can miss the opportunity to pick the best nutrients that will help us achieve our goals. Counting calories can also create a limiting belief that we are not allowed to eat certain things or participate in social events because of caloric limits.
In addition, calorie counting can...
The Truth...Intermittent Fasting for women...
It is not a diet.
It is not a quick-fix approach to weight loss.
It is not going to help you lose weight.
You make a MindSet Shift about what it is you say YOU REALLY WANT FOR YOURSELF. It takes a Winner's MindSet to be successful at anything in life. Intermittent Fasting included.
Let's chat about it.

End-of-the-year challenges (in my opinion) create a sense of desperation and unrealistic expectations about lifestyle changes and what we say we really want for ourselves.
In this video I discuss Hyperbolic Discounting a term used to describe the tendency we have as people to increasingly choose smaller-lesser rewards over the larger-later reward. Or what I like to refer to as making decisions based on what you want now in the moment vs what you say you really want long term.
I hope this helps you stick to the plans and goals you have yourself in the long term. And to avoid desperate attempts for that quick fix approach that is often the aim with a lot of these End of The Year Challenges that startup.

Simply because the holidays pop up in our daily lives now in September with Halloween on full display.
In this video, I share with you my simple tips to help you avoid the dreaded Holiday Weight Gain.
If this is the season that you have decided you are not going to gain weight, then simply don't gain weight.
How to put things in place to help you reach your own personal holiday goals with weight.
Intermittent fasting is a lifestyle approach we can use to help to balance out hunger hormones and reduce or eliminate sugar cravings.
Leptin, the body’s satiety hormone, primarily controls your appetite and how much of your food’s energy is stored as fat.
Leptin works by a negative feedback loop. When there is MORE LEPTIN you will have a DECREASED APPETITE.
Leptin has also been shown to be a suppressor of sweet taste perception or craving. When you have higher leptin levels, you are less likely to crave sweets.
This negative feedback loop is enhanced when you practice an intermittent fasting lifestyle.
When you are consistently fasting, your LEPTIN levels rise and GHRELIN (your hunger hormone) is lowered.
As more and more of the leptin hormone is secreted in the body, leptin will signal your taste receptors to crave less sweet food....
How we speak to ourselves about our decisions matters. On and Off again is just another way of saying Starting over and Quitting. This can be very confusing for our brains. Let's break it down in today's Community Conversation. I will also offer you a better phrase to use to help you stay in the game.
The science is there to prove to us that Intermittent Fasting just makes sense as a means to balance out our hormones and reverse the signs of aging. We have a track record of success with the women who are ebbing and flowing their way through this intermittent fasting lifestyle. So why are there still women who are ON and OFF with intermittent fasting?
I believe it is a MindSet issue. There is no emotional buy-in when we are treating Intermittent Fasting as a diet and not approaching it like a lifestyle.

Some things I am focusing on this month that I thought I would share with you.
Book of the Month - BadAss Habits by: Jen Sinero
I have read a few of her other books and LOVED them. I am all about creating healthy habits that stick. So reading another book about habits just makes sense for me. I will keep you posted via Instagram about this book and share my big takeaways with you over there.
Break Fast Shake: Still doing what I have always been doing. My go-to break-fast shake. This month I am focusing on simplicity. No fancy-schmancy this month. I am skipping the Coco Whip cream and nuts on the top and just enjoying all the dense nutrition already packed into my superfood shake.

2020 was (still is) a year. The good news is, we made it through. 2021 is right around the corner and I am ready for it.
One thing I was totally committed to this year was making sure my head was always in a good book. It's a goal I had set for myself back in December 2019. I committed to reading 1 book a month during 2020. Man, am I grateful I set that goal. It is a goal I set for myself every year. But 2020 was the year I needed it the most.
Below are the books I chose to read. Some of the books were total life changers and others, well, just didn't hit with me this year. I will share my thoughts on each below.
1. Super Attractor ~ Love Gabby Bernstein, just didn't connect with this book. Finished this one quickly...I think just because I wanted to get through it.
2. Why We Can't Sleep ~ this one hits the LIFE CHANGER category for me. It is perfect for any woman entering the middle stages of...
Start preparing your MindSet for Monday on Sunday night.
Sunday night routine:
I always as myself these 2 questions:
My Monday morning routine:
I commit to my workout goal/intention so I have a win at the beginning of my day.
I rinse and repeat this process throughout the week. This allows me to control my day so my day does not control me.
Ending the Monday MindSet drama starts with a good Sunday night routine of planning and self-care.

Here at the for Today's Aging Woman Community, I teach the 20:4 intermittent fasting protocol. I like to refer to this protocol as the Sweet Spot. It is the best protocol to balance our hunger hormones and reset our metabolism.
