You are enough. You are worthy. You are deserving. You are fierce. Lift yourself up this new year.
As you enter the new year, I encourage you to explore new foods, cooking methods and eating practices that make you feel happy, whole, energized, confident and proud. Take note of how such fueling practices impact physical performance, your relationships, mood, social life, sleep etc.
You are more than enough and deserving of food.

Getting to know our hunger and satisfactory cues can support us in fueling optimally for both health and performance!
Your body knows you best! You'll be happy to know, what it's telling you is much more accurate than most, if not all, tools available to us!
Today's health & fitness society is "booming" with gadgets, trackers and devices that can support your goal(s), yet such tools should be used in assessing TRENDS rather than as an exact measure.
You're not alone if you often question your hunger cues; wondering whether you're actually hungry because you just ate 1-2hrs ago. If you feel hungry, you most likely are!
When we choose to ignore our hunger on a daily basis, our body's hunger signaling and satisfactory cues can become 'deactivated'. When this occurs, the body will "wave it's hands" to signal hunger in other ways: fatigue, tiredness, food thoughts and moodiness. Just like physical training, the practice of getting in touch with our hunger and satisfactory cues takes time. Be patient. Honor your hunger. Enjoy your food. Enjoy the experience of eating.
Trust yourself. Trust your body. It is the most precious tool we have! Doing so will fuel your body appropriately and help you reach your health and performance goals.
