Perfect Fit Foundation
As a registered dietitian nutritionist, healthy food has always been a huge part of my life. However, after I got a demanding job where the last thing I had time to do everyday was think about food, I realized the struggle that many others must face. Throw in marriage, motherhood and the inability to think in silence for 5 seconds and I found full on chaos when trying to prep, plan and eat the most top-notch foods that I so easily did before. When there is no time to think about your food, it can seem impossible to make the right decisions. And when there is a little bit of time to think about it, how in the world do you decide what to choose?
Unfortunately, flawed and sneaky nutrition information and products have taken the world by storm. Unless you are an expert, it is understandable that you may have gotten your nutrition lines blurred. We are reading the headlines and watching our newsfeeds assuming that the newest and best thing just came along in a pill or shake form, easily forgetting the new and best thing from 6 months ago that no one is talking about anymore. Our friends lose weight one way, our family loses weight another, so which way are we supposed to go to see the lasting results that we so desperately want?
Let’s face it people, you cannot fit a square peg into a round hole no matter how many ways you try. You love bread, but you are cutting carbs. To you, dessert is like heaven neatly placed in a pastry package, yet you decided to give up all sugar. Sure, maybe you see some results with these strategies, but they will only amount to failure in the long run because who can willingly give up the things that they love the most F.O.R.E.V.E.R.?? I know I sure can’t. And then those pesky pounds creep right back!
This is the foundation on which Perfect Fit was designed. My goal is to help you learn a proven and lasting eating pattern that consists of balance between life and food. Good food. Food that you love. And a life without misery. One that you can continue forever, see results, and love while you are doing it! Food should fit into our lifestyles, not the other way around. Stop the yo-yoing and stop the drama. Stop the awful cycle of starting a “diet” highly motivated followed by self-criticism when you feel you’ve failed. Achieve a healthy lifestyle and the weight loss you desire. See what it is like to find your perfect fit.
