10 Things You Didn’t Know About Nourish
You’re skeptical. I get it. I would be, too. What can my program do for you that you haven’t already done? How is different from those “other” programs out there (hint: they don’t have me)? Perhaps you’ve tried it all and nothing seems to work. Well, it’s time for a change!
If you think you know what my Nourish program is about, here’s what you might not know:
1: It’s Not a Diet
At all. It’s a way to learn a ton about your body and how it reacts to the food you are eating. Yes, we give up stuff…but not for the reasons you think. We give up the foods that are probably making you sick, tired, and unable to lose weight. We do this so you can figure out if these foods are messing with your digestion. Once you know this, you can start to heal. It’s not about following a strict plan or eating like I eat, it’s about learning to eat the way your body wants to eat.
2: You Can Do Anything For 21 Days
That’s right. You are more powerful than you think. Once you get off refined food, stimulants, and sugar you’ll be surprised how easy it is and you will love how awesome you feel. You’ll even save money because you won’t be relying on other people to cook your food. No more fast food or take-out to feed yourself. You know what your current diet is doing for you, give me just 21 days and discover a new way of eating.
3: What You Put In is More Important Then What You Take Out
All those “other” programs focus more on restricting and focusing mainly on what you’re not eating. I don’t care as much about that. I care what you ARE eating. Removing entire food groups is easy. Of course you’ll lose weight that way, you end up eating less calories. But is it sustainable? Should you do this long-term? What’s the health benefit? And most importantly, what are you replacing these foods with? Nourish teaches you how to feel full and satisfied on less food, no deprivation required.
4: You Won’t Die Without Your Coffee
You really won’t, I promise. The way I see it this: coffee is good for you, unless it’s not. It’s really that simple. If you have IBS, leaky gut, or reflux, it might not be your friend. Learn how you feel without your daily cup of Joe and then make an informed decision about it. Still not convinced? See #2.
5: Vegetables Can Taste Good
If your daily repertoire consists of a small side of steamed broccoli, I’m talking to you. You can expand your horizons and learn how to prepare crave-worthy veggie dishes. By learning a few chef-inspired tips and tricks, vegetables can be delicious! Beyond taste, veggies are your secret weapon to living a healthy life in a body you love. Give yourself a chance to learn to love veggies!
6: You Don’t Have to Count Calories to Lose Weight
When you’re eating clean, calorie counting is often not necessary. When you choose clean, nutrient-rich food you will rely less on will power. Why? Because nutrients in your food signal satiety in your brain. Highly refined and processed foods lack these signaling nutrients. You know this because you can eat serving after serving of them and never feel satisfied. Calorie rich food does not always equal fullness, but nutrient rich food does! Nourish will prove this point to you over and over again.
7: You Don’t Need All That Protein
Protein is important but we try way too hard to get it. Guess what? If you’re eating enough, you’re likely getting enough. Let’s put that same effort toward getting in leafy greens and vegetables and see what amazing things happen. Nourish teaches you how to create a balanced plate so there’s never a question of “how much should I eat”?
8: Fruit Doesn’t Make You Fat
Let me just say this, fruit is not your problem.
9: Carbs Are Not Evil. And Neither Is Gluten (well maybe…)
Poor carbs, they are such an easy target. And yes, they can be devoid of nutrients and full of empty calories. They can also be so high in gluten they are making you sick. But this is not the case for everyone. In fact, it’s not the case for most people. Most of us can eat the heck out of carbs and feel perfectly fine. Can you? It’s worth the effort to find out.
10: It Could Change Your Life, If You Let It
What you feed yourself day to day might be the most important decisions you make in your life. These choices can have profound effects. They can make you sick or keep you well. Changing your diet changes your outlook and that can change your life. If you let it. Nourish will help you take that first step.
