The Secret to Being “Holistically Slim”

The process of slimming down starts in our minds and soul. It begins with a realization that our bodies deserve to be treated like luxury vehicles, like 5-star hotels. Very often, in my coaching practice, I help people change the internal conversation and create habits that lead to gratitude and happiness within, regardless of what the outside package look like.

So, in many ways, I teach my clients that weight loss and slimming down is as much about mindset and emotional wellbeing as it is about the foods that you eat.

Fellow coach and founder of Holistically Slim, Sarah Anne Stewart and I sat down to discuss our approach to a healthy diet and shared our views with you here. Check out the video:

My Diet Is Better Than Yours + Elimination Recap

Thank you so much for tuning in to ABC’s MY DIET IS BETTER THAN YOURS.  It was an incredible experience and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

As you probably now know, I was ousted by my contestant at the end of Episode 2 (Whaaaa)… That means, no more #vegan diets on prime time (for now)…

Here’s a video with a recap of what happened

Here’s the thing: The cookie was not the problem. Neither was the diet. Weight loss is a byproduct of a healthy lifestyle. It is impossible to judge the effectiveness of a particular diet based on how many pounds somebody loses in a single week. I did wish I could stay longer and show the world the amazing goodness of a compassionate lifestyle.

I have no doubt that a plant-based diet works. There is no better proof than what I see in the mirror every morning. After all, this lifestyle is what keeps me looking and feeling amazing well into my 40’s.

Give a plant-based diet a go, it changed my life; it can change your life too!  And DON’T FEAR THE COOKIE!

Enjoy the show this week and let’s root for Taj to reach her goal!

Why is Working Out So Important

I admit it, I hate working out! That’s right, I said it! I don’t like gyms, people screaming at me to “motivate me” or weight rooms.  But I recognize how essential it is to shake your butt on a regular basis.

That’s why I decided to interview my friend and fitness expert Sylvia Nasser. Sylvia can teach you to love workouts and motivate you like no one else I’ve ever met and I wanted to get her take on why working out is so important and how you can get motivated to shake you butt as well!

Check out the interview below!
