Bio-hack your Appetite to Stop Overeating at Night and Lose Weight


Alright lady loves! and Fellas if you are reading 🙂

Today we are going to be talking about one of my favorite topics. Breaking the binge cycle with nutrition.

My girlfriend Tristan From Honest To Goodness Health helps me break it down in the video and throughout this post she will be quoted. In the video we dive into a Q&A with the audience since this is from a n Instagram and Facebook LIVE, but the bulk of the information is in the first 20 minutes.

As a health coach and holistic nutritionist I look at not only the nutritional element and what we are eating, but also the emotional connection to food and the beliefs and ways of being that get us stuck in food prison.

But today we are just going to be focusing on the nutritional side.

If you know that binging for you is not massively emotional, or rooted in an eating disorder then it is likely due to the way you are eating. What, when and how we eat effects our biology and trying to fight our biology is often a losing battle.

Our biology wants to keep us alive. Its our body’s job. And if you are not eating balanced meals your biology gets a little twisted.

Constantly Wishing I looked Like Someone Else (Reader Letter)

Hi babes,

I am coming at you today from my bed, boom. Do any of you remember Dear Sugar, that relationship coloumn by Cheryl Strayed?

God, I LOVED that. I still go back and read them from time to time if I am having a relationship lull or feeling sad  or need some inspiration or whatever.

I want to share with you letters or DM’s that I get from you guys and respond to them, much like Dear Sugar. I will share these letters with permission of the writer and of course it wil be confidential. But I believe that it will help so many of us dealing with a less then stellar relationship with food, body and ourselves.

As women, we have the gift of gab and talking about (or in this case reading) about can really help kick start the healing.

So without further ado, here is DM numero uno:

Knowledge Isn’t Power

Well hey, hi, hello!

Today I am sharing a kind of radical out there idea. Something I’ve been thinking about for a while now.

I was completely on the fence about sharing it but the thing about being on the fence is that after a while it starts to hurt. You just have to pick a side so you don’t continue to have fence up your ass.

So I just said F it. I am gunna go for it.

It’s the new red hair I swear.

But a little warning before I dive in. It’s a bit of a tough love kind of post. Just know I am coming from a good place, relating to you as powerful and whole. Not in need of fixing. This post is supposed to put you in a state of inquiry.

This Product is the Reason I Have Not Been Sick in 7 YEARS.

Hey girl hey!

You know when you just begin to feel like you are getting sick? On the verge as they say. You might have a tinge in your throat or feel a little sluggish. Maybe you feel congested or have a heaviness in your chest when you cough?

You know the feeling.

It sucks knowing that there is a good chance you are going to wake up tomorrow and feel even worse. I hate that.

But what if I told you that in the last 7 years I have never moved passed being on the verge to getting full blown sick…, would you believe me?

(Also ignore my crappy manicure. I know I am due)

15 Minute Marinara Sauce

Hi Franzzz!

Today I have a super quick and fun recipe for you.

Its a 15 minute marinara sauce for a lazy fancy meal and it is right up this girls alley. I just don’t always have the time or desire to spend all day in the kitchen whipping up something or letting a sauce simmer.

Not only has it been really warm in LA the past two weeks and leaving the stove on makes the house hotter, I have been consciously aware of the utlities bills. Letting a sauce simmer on the stove all afternoon would just rack up a higher gas bill and well I am just not made of money. So this quick sauce saves time and dollar dollar bills ya’ll.

I can get down with that.

Emotionally Full vs Physcially Full From Food

 

As you know, I lived in a diet mentality and dealt with an eating disorder for 10 years and it was a real fucking ordeal.

Every day for a decade my mind was consumed by the thought of food, calories, weight and the way I looked. The insecurity, self-doubt, depression, shame, loneliness, the hunger; physical and emotional.

It screws with you.

When your first and last thought of the day is what you ate, what you didn’t eat or should you eat at all for that extended period of time, it’s damn near impossible to know peace, joy, freedom, love or happiness.

It’s a self-inflicted food prison with no window to the outside.

The Best 10 Minute Lentil Salad. Like Ever.

Lentils are kind of underrated, no?

They sort of get a bad rap for not being delicious. I don’t know many people that are like, I looooove lentils, but I am starting to really get a soft spot for them.

I mean, that curried lentil soup I made last week on Instagram Live was so good I seriously made it 5 times in about 8 days and I made it for the dinner I co-hosted with Kitchen Table App, too. 

High in magnesium and folate, these guys are heart healthy supporting blood flow, moving oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Folate is super important for pregnant ladies because it supports brain development in babies. And they are really high in protien for a plant based food and high in fiber so they are great for digestion, energy, balanced blood sugar and support a healthy weight. They help keep cravings for sugar low as well.

Plus they are freaking cheap. Like dirt cheap.

If you are on a budget skip the pasta and opt for the immensely healthier option of lentils. Just an idea.

Microgreens Are More Than a Garnish. Here are 3 Recipes to Prove it! Featuring Arizona Microgreens

About two years ago in January of 2016 I moved from Los Angeles to Phoenix. To this day quitting my big girl corporate job to open a cute little cafe was one of the riskiest and scariest things I have ever done.

Before the move I had a lot of preconcieved notions that the restaurants were all going to suck, there wasn’t going to be organic food anywhere and the farmers markets would surely be sub-par.

I was mostly wrong about everything.
