The Greatest Dietary Change You Can Make for Lasting Health and Weight Loss

OK, you’re not going to like me for this one but here goes…

After helping hundreds of clients lose hundreds of pounds while regaining their health and energy over the last 20 years, my private VIP’s have found this to be the greatest dietary change leading to lasting success…

Lose the wheat and lose the weight.

Unfortunately, many of us are stuffing ourselves with nutrient void and calorically dense “sub-food” and wheat is often one of the main ingredients. Yes, I know we’re told about the benefits of “healthy whole grains” – I’m a Registered Dietitian with a Master’s in Nutrition and have learned to teach this, as well. Yet, even with healthy whole grains containing more fiber, etc., they’re only a slightly better choice than their highly stripped alternatives.

Between encouraging us to overeat and triggering surges of insulin that help store body fat (not to mention promote chronic illnesses), wheat is often behind so many of the ailments we see today. 

Now here’s where you may be getting angry – but if you don’t believe me, just take a look at our state of size and health just 20 or 30 years ago. Few people were overweight and now, adults and kids alike, it’s more common than ever. Sure we’ve been “super sizing,” “economy sizing,” and “value mealing,” and inhaling foods with ingredients that read more like lab experiments – but the proof is in the pudding. I mean, in the wheat.

I’m not saying wheat products aren’t delicious and satisfying. Is there a better smell or taste than freshly baked bread? What I am saying is that for the sake of our health, confidence, lifestyle, quality of life and waistline, give this some thought and see how your daily food choices may be preventing you from creating the health, body, business and life that you want most.

Here to help you look, feel and live your best.
