Should you weigh your food?

You absolutely do not have to weigh your food to get results. In fact, unless I’m specifically working towards something, I eyeball my portion sizes based on what I know from tracking macros for so long. It’s also super important to consider on your relationship with food before you start weighing things. If you struggle with a healthy body image …

Eating to Lose Weight – the Problem with always Finishing your Food

Calories + Portion Control

Someone recently commented, “Calories don’t count if you eat whole foods. You can eat as much as you want.” Um… I respectfully disagree.

Eating out + Bloating

This new bikini arrived yesterday but I didn’t have a chance to try it on before we went out for dinner.
