Are you tired of dieting? Wondering if you are going to need to count calories the rest of your life? Annoyed with the entire world having an opinion about what, how, when, and how much you should be eating? And, by the way, aren’t you just SO SICK of these diets not even working?
Doesn’t it just make you want to throw in the towel?
DO IT! THROW IN THE TOWEL!
My name is Lindsey Janeiro and I’m a registered dietitian who is here to tell you to throw in the towel on dieting.
I believe that our bodies do an excellent job of telling us what they need, but it’s often all of this noise surrounding health and nutrition that is confusing and frustrating. I know – I’ve been there. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to eliminate the stress and frustration surrounding cooking, healthy eating, and feeding a family. Instead, we’re making it way more fun, enjoyable, tasty and colorful! It’s time we play with our food again!
Healthy eating is WAY more fun than plain grilled chicken and broccoli in perfectly portioned meal prep containers every single night of the week. I have fallen in love with cooking and preparing foods that are both nourishing and enjoyable. I want to share that with you, too!
I get excited about all foods, especially foods that are bright and colorful. Which is great, because often the colorful foods found in nature are loaded with an abundance of nutrition. Scroll through my Instagram feed and you’ll see what I’m talking about. 😉
More than what I believe, is what research is showing. Emerging evidence is showing that diets do not work – many people often gain back the weight the lost, and more. Intuitive eating is showing to be a more evidence-based recommendation for better health. Speaking of health? It’s not necessarily tied to that number on the scale.
With all of this information at our fingertips, I’ve been encouraged to throw out dieting, throw out calorie counting (YAY!), and to focus on listening to my body, nourishing myself with mostly real foods (don’t go crazy – brownies are still okay), and living in a way that is more balanced.
