Nutrition Boot Camp FAQ’s

Nutrition Boot Camp starts in just days! I’ve opened up a few more spots, but I am trying to keep them small so we can get to everybody’s questions. Today, I wanted to answer some questions that have come up and clear up what might be holding you back :)

  • How much time will this take?

Well, the answer is: however much you’ll give it. Bootcampers will be given exclusive information sent directly to their inbox for the subject matter we are covering that week. You can read it all right then, or put it in a folder and still have access to the knowledge well into the future. Calls are limited to 1 hour or less every Monday night and will be recorded (or at the very least, typed out) and put into an email within the following 48 hours.

  • What if I can’t make the call?

As stated above, the call will be recorded and sent. I encourage you to email questions that you have prior to any call you may miss so I can answer it for everybody. This also works if you’re just a little shy about asking questions :)

  • What is the difference between Nutrition Boot Camp and Nutrition Counseling?

Nutrition Boot Camp is a class-style environment designed to get the most education and information to a broad range of people. We will be covering basics in Nutrition Boot Camp (more in-depth boot camps will be coming soon!). Nutrition Counseling is one on one personal nutrition, tailored to meet your goals and overcome your own personal obstacles. Nutrition Boot Camp is a 6 week course. Nutrition Counseling takes 3-12 months to complete.

  • What can I expect to have covered in Nutrition Boot Camp?

Here is an overview of our 6 weeks in Nutrition Boot Camp:

  1. DIETS: They only make us fatter
  2. Eating Style vs. Diet
  3. Emotional Eating: Pitfalls and Fixes
  4. Common dis-ease nutrition fixes
  5. Why any kind of deprivation is a BAD idea
  6. Metabolic Damage: We’ll touch briefly on what it is, what causes it, how to identify it and ways to avoid it. There will be an in-depth class offered later on repairing the metabolism.
  • At the end of the day, what will I learn?

While we will al walk away with different things, here are a few I am hoping will stick:

  1. To NEVER trust a diet again…no matter who is doing it
  2. To trust that I can make the right nutrition decisions for myself (and my family)
  3. What the heck is a metabolism really?
  4. Food is fuel, but it should also be enjoyed
  5. I don’t have to live in deprivation to reach my goals
  6. How to clarify my goals and make my nutrition meet my lifestyle.

Those are the basics of what you can expect by enrolling in Nutrition Boot Camp. It’s not a boot camp about my eating style, or why you should change everything you’re doing, or meant to make you feel terrible about the way you are eating….it’s quite the opposite. We learn and then apply that knowledge to suit our lifestyles. Keep it simple people!

These pictures were taken 3 months apart and were the result of loosening up on food restriction and LESS gym time! I’m no super hero…I just like to share what I know :)

Hope to see you there,

It’s National Nutrition Month!

Welcome to National Nutrition Month (and a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to you as well!).

This month I will be highlighting what I love most: FOOD!

I’ll be working to get you back into the kitchen with easy recipes and meal prep, as well as chats about proper nutrition and all the nutrition tricks needed to get the most health out of your body. I’ll focus on education and fun as well. Food shouldn’t be boring, even if you’re trying to lose weight! You’ll get the insider track on eliminating digestive disorders and meal prepping like a pro so dinner can be on the table in less time than it takes hitting a drive through.

Remember, it’s NUTRITION, not exercise, that can make or break your health and wellness goals.

Be on the lookout for more and sign up over to the RIGHT ==========> to make sure you’re in on all the goods (even some freebies and sales THIS MONTH ONLY).

See you tomorrow!

Mini Carrot Cakes

I know it is past Easter BUT…you can enjoy these sweet treats anytime :)

INgredients:

1 cup ground oatmeal

1/2 cup unbleached, all-purpose, gluten-free flower (you can find this in the health food section of your store)

1 TBSP baking powder

1/2 salt

1 TBSP ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 cup succunat or coconut sugar (natural sweetener will do)

1 full cup egg white only ( I use egg beaters whites) beaten until frothy

4 grated carrots

1 TBSP melted coconut oil (unprocessed)

1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce

BAKING:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients (sans sugar) in a large bowl and wet ingredients (+sugar) in smaller bowl.

Gently mix wet into dry ingredients just until moist.

I use an ice cream scoop to dish mixture evenly into lined (or oiled/sprayed) muffin tins.

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until center is done.

These are around 70 calories a piece and actually low in carbs and fats with the ratios being about 60/30/10 (in percentage from carbs, proteins, fats)

Eat them warm with a hot cup of cinnamon tea and enjoy!
