The biggest obstacle I hear from the people I coach is that they “just don’t have time.” People are SO busy today with work, families, managing a house, and the million other things that come up.
So it’s too often that they find themselves grabbing food for convenience – food that not only doesn’t serve their bodies but that also ends up negatively impacting the family and their waistlines. This leads to further guilt and a vicious cycle begins.
It breaks my heart to see these smart, hard-working, and deserving people go down the rabbit hole of convenience because they just don’t know another way. So, I’m here to help! 🙂

Choosing an Asian style restaurant and asking for just the veggie dish and a side of a protein - like something on the appetizer list - is a great tip and one that I do from time to time. The veggie meal is usually at least 2 meals really - and I can add different proteins to them.
