Why you won't see me posting bikini (before & after) photosAug 25, 2020
Well hello there! As you may know by now, I have a passion to teach food education. It's my mission to help as many people as I can take their blinders off to overly processed foods and how they are affecting their lives, their health, and their bodies.
Yes, I have a success story. And yep, I've traveled down a 6-year journey to get where I am today. My experience is why I do this.
And one of my biggest soapbox topics is my disapproval of diet schemes & quick weight loss programs that require you to purchase expensive products, powders, pills, coffees, or supplements so that you can lose weight; the weight that has taken you months and years to put on.
Will you lose weight?! Most likely. I am not here to doubt the physical success of these products or companies.
98% of these companies use chemicals that are (long term) not safe and cause long term health problems for the average human body.
And I'm not sure who needs to hear this, but the secret to "skinny tea" or "skinny coffee" or "skinny powder" is DIARRHEA! So when a company uses the words "nutrition" or "healthy" or "organic" or "all-natural", it means NOTHING. And it's YOUR responsibility to know your products.
This is why I don't post before/after pictures of clients who get healthy with my services. I do not sell weight loss. I do not sell a product that produces long-term unhealthy results.
I sell food shifts. I sell food education. I sell cooking skills. I teach how to read common food labels. I educate on the power of real/whole foods that we find in our grocery stores. You know why? It's sustainable and it works.
What I teach and encourage will help you look better on the inside. And that, over time, will show on the outside. If you are overweight and you start changing the foods you eat, by default, you are going to lose weight. If you clean up your diet, your body is going to change for the better.
Getting healthy is what I encourage. Eating real/whole foods so that your body can look and feel its best is my goal. That is why you will never see me (or my clients) posing for a "weight loss journey" photo. When you get healthy through food changes, you feel good from the inside out. It will manifest on your skin, your face, in your clothes, on the scale, how you sleep, how you think, and how you treat others.
Food is everything, and I hope you really take the time to research something before you invest your time and money into it. Ask yourself these questions BEFORE you purchase a product to lose weight or "get healthy":
- How long has it been on the market?
- Where is it manufactured?
- Is it sold by a pyramid system?
- How much does it cost you a month?
Please love your body enough to do your due diligence. You might lose the weight, but once you do, then what? Are you going to keep it up through eating right? Probably not. Are you going to take this magic potion for the rest of your life so you can keep eating fast food?
I encourage you today to really assess the foods you eat on a regular basis. Keep a journal if that helps you hold yourself accountable. I'd love to be your cheerleader any way I can.
Eating healthy foods isn't the easiest fix. It's not the fastest way. But it's healthy, and 1 year from now, 10 years from now, 20 years from now, your body will thank you by showing up and looking good without the before/after photos!
What's on Your Fork?
