One of the biggest problems we face today is the “I want it now” mentality and wanting to take the easiest and quickest way to get there. “Let's take things to the extreme so it happens fast, because I want it right now!”
With TV shows like ABC's Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition and NBC’s The Biggest Loser, people think they can easily drop a lot of weight in a short amount of time.
What’s #projectHEALTHYISH? It’s about stopping being so hard on yourself and just trying to be a little bit better than you were the day before. Maybe that means a 🥗 salad for lunch—with a side of 🍟fries. Or 🍹 happy hour on a Friday—and a major 😅 sweat session boot camp workout on Sunday morning. It’s your real life in all of its fun, unfiltered realness. Here at Overeater Wellness Coaching, we aren't about a harsh line between healthy & unhealthy. Real people live somewhere in between (and that's why we are so thankful for our JP+ 🍇🍏🍎 which we will talk more about at a later time), and this month we're going to celebrate that #healthyishprocess with you! Join us here and on our Facebook and Instagram pages and show us all month long how you do #projectHEALTHYISH! 💪

Do you travel for work and find it challenging to eat healthy? Dan and I have been in your shoes and we are here to help! First and foremost, we recommend investing in a cooler or a meal management bag, such as Six Pack Bags (click on the Bags tab). My favorite is the Renee. It fits perfectly in the overhead bins on a plane and I have even fit it under the seat in front of me. Next, pack simple pro-carb snacks at home or stop by a grocery store before you get to your hotel. We simply use Google to find stores nearby. Finally, make the time to prepare ahead, even if you have only five minutes. Preparing your snacks ahead of time or making a game plan for when you arrive to your destination will set you up for success. Here is more information about pro-carbs as well as tips and tricks for the person on-the-go.
More people in the U.S. are addicted to food than any other substance including drugs or alcohol. So, let’s talk about some of the signs that you might have an addiction to food or are a food addict.
