Uncategorized Feb 09, 2024

Hey there, fabulous femmes over 50! Are you tired of feeling stuck in the diet yo-yo, frustrated by "healthy" foods that don't deliver, and confused by all the conflicting weight loss advice out there? Don't worry, sister, you're not alone! 


Did you know that 80% of dieters regain the weight they lose, and often MORE? Shocking, right? 70 % of us western women are overweight or obese! But here's the truth: most "diet foods" are  highly processed ,packed with sneaky additives and hidden sugars that sabotage your metabolism and leave you craving more (think artificially sweetened treats, low-fat processed products, and hidden sodium bombs ). It's no wonder we're fighting an uphill battle! 


But there's good news, sista! 

After 20 years of personal experimentation and now armed with the science from my brand new Weight Loss Coach and Holistic Nutrition certifications (woohoo, 74 and still learning! ), I've cracked the code  and the secrets to natural, sustainable weight loss that actually works! It’s  in the science of nutrition. 

Let's ditch the diet drama and dive into the real culprits behind our weight struggles: 


Processed "Frankenfoods": Bye-bye, white bread, sugary yogurt, and processed meats! These guys are loaded with refined carbs, unhealthy fats, and hidden sugars that spike your insulin, slow your metabolism, and leave you feeling hungry and sluggish.. Get diligent  in the art of  reading labels  


Sneaky Sugar Addicts: ️‍♀️ Watch out for hidden sugars lurking in salad dressings, sauces, and even "healthy" snacks! These sneaky saboteurs wreak havoc on your blood sugar and trigger fat storage ‍♀️. 


Chemical Chaos: Ditch the artificial sweeteners, colors, and flavorings that confuse your body and disrupt your gut health . Opt for whole, unprocessed foods whenever possible! 

Ready to turn things around? Here are 5 simple swaps to kickstart your healthy weight loss journey: 


💥Trade processed snacks for real food: 

💥Chips ➡️ Nuts & seeds
