Simple Doesn't Mean Easy!
So what does the Simple Solution Mean?
I decide I want to lose weight, get rid of my bloating, gas, and other digestive issues, look and feel great once and for all and wham, all done.
It didn't take a day to get where your at and it won't take a day to get out!
What's Simple is what you should be eating to feel great.
Let's face it, we need this body to get us to where we are going.
You have plans, dreams, vacations, adventures to go on.
A run-down, over-weight, dog tired, stress-out body is not going to take you there.
No way, no how.
Nutritional info these days seems just way to complex to decipher.
The more confusing and conflicting the information gets the more you can say hey, all in moderation, who cares, when my numbers up I's outta here.....
Eating healthy, looking great, having a body that is fit enough to allow you to live your life is simple.
The hard part it deciding that your ready to do something about it.
You need to be aware that with each passing day you are limiting your time of joy!
I know I want a whole lot of that....
So if you have a health issue, weight issue, digestive issue, feel like crap and can't get out of bed then we need to talk.
The hard part is deciding that you care enough about yourself to make those changes.....
The rest is Simple!!!
Better Write It Down!
I have a great memory.
When it comes to a "to do" list or "to buy" list I can pretty much wing it!
I am not going to lie here, I have gotten into the car after a marathon shop, waiting in line and checking out and found....I forgot the asparagus and I was making asparagus soup for dinner.
Hello! Bad language is followed by getting back out of the car and going back into the store. Grrrr! Who has got the time for such nonsense?
What a waste of time, not to mention a waste of money as I always find a few more yummy thing I just have to have!
So I make a list.
Actually I have a list of all the common ingredients I use in my meal preparation, on my ipad and my computer.
As I am creating the menus for the week, I check off the stuff that I need to get. Easy!
It also helps with a impromptu inventory of what I already have.
No more, "yes dear I bought more avocados and we have 4 rotting in the fridge, ouch."
They say that for every minute you spend in a grocery store over 30 minutes, you will spend at least $1 per minute.
Get out fast!
Wonder why they rearrange the store so frequently? It keep you running around in circles looking for the food on your list but passing all kinds of alluring treats.
Marion Nestle has written a great book titled " What to Eat" that has a whole section on the psychology used by food stores to get us to buy more food. They are just so tricky.
Really interesting and lets you see through the "matrix"!
So do a little list building of your own.
Once you have the basics down you can add new stuff as you start to add to your diet.
Having a list will help you to speed through through the store, save you from buying impulse items, have the food to create complete healthy meals and avoid the need to grab something yucky because there isn't anything in the house to eat.
Let me know how you do.

We all experience fatigue occasionally but if you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning, need coffee to get started and keep going throughout the day, find yourself craving sweets all day long then you will benefit from this newsletter and working with a health coach.
In this bi-weekly newsletter I will offer simple strategies that will increase your energy level and improve your health.
Many tips will seem ridiculously obvious but if you are not following them then they need repeating.
So I am going super easy on you now. It is the first issue for goodness sake!
Water! 60-70% of your body is made up of water.
If you are not hydrated you are tired, have brain fog, you're slow, moody, confused, are stiff, achy and hungry.
Yep I am telling you, increase your water intake by one, yes just one 16oz bottle of water a day for a few days.
Once you have that down, add another one. At this point you will feel a difference.
Set a goal that you will drink two bottles before lunch, two bottles after lunch and one after dinner.
Not only will you feel better, be more mentally sharp, your skin will look younger, you'll begin to lose weight and your digestion will be more efficient.
Simple changes repeated over long periods of time create long-lasting results.
Aristotle once wrote "We are what we repeatedly do."
Start a habit today that will dramatically change your life.
(Think water is boring? Add lemon, lime, strawberries, blueberries or raspberries. I had one client that loved cucumber slices in her water)
