Transform your Mind - Transform your Body - Transform your Life
I often get asked if I "cheat" on my diet, and if I do, how much??
Well I like to say, I don't cheat, I just eat. It's true. I don't approach my nutrition like I'm on a diet, I just eat the things that I know make me feel the best and don't bother with the stuff that makes me feel like crap.
The thing is, a lot of people seem to think that means I never get to "have fun" with my food. Quite the contrary! All it takes is a little imagination and a Google search for me to find healthier ways of including those mouth watering meals when I...
Weight loss and wellness can be confusing AF if you don't have a basic knowledge of how nutrition works, how fitness works, and how your body works.
Add in a million different "experts" confusing you further with contradictory advice, and chances are pretty good you're going to feel stuck, frozen, or like you don't know which way is up.
But the real problem is, you don't know what you don't know. So let's shine a light on where the missing pieces are, so we can fill them in and make you an expert of your own body.
Once you complete...
I don't know the last time I was this excited about a dish...
I rarely have cravings for gluten and dairy-laden dishes anymore, but this New Year's Eve I was struck with this ridiculous desire for fetuccini alfredo (a dish I probably haven't had in 15 years), and I was determined to find a recipe I could actually eat.
Guys. This recipe was so freaking good, you could've fooled me that it was the real deal! Plus it literally took less than 20 minutes to make.
And I have to tell you, the sauce was so incredible, I poured it over my...
I think we can all agree... NO ONE likes getting sick. Which is why I put together this little guide of the holistic practices I use to fight illness fast. I mean, I knocked out my sore throat in 2 days flat just a few weeks ago using this exact routine.
And here's the crazy thing, for years, when I would get sick, I would get sick for a month at a time.
It always started the same, I'd get a sore throat, the sore throat would turn into a bronchitis, the bronchitis would turn into a deep chest cough, and on...
We're nearing the end of the year, and I have to tell you... I don't love New Year's resolutions. I don't love the idea of waiting for a day to decide to change your life in a positive way. I think the second you get an idea in your head that will better your life, you should start working on it. Right the F now.
I also don't love resolutions because it sets you up for quitting. If you say you're going to workout 5 days per week the entire year, and then God forbid get sick for a week and can't, suddenly you're let off...

You might expect a post like this to be filled with the typical "you're eating too much," "your workouts aren't effective," "you aren't taking the right supplements." But honestly, in my 7 years of experience as a trainer, those have not been the true reasons for stalled (or never started) weight loss.
In this post, I'm going to outline the biggest underlying culprits preventing you from reaching your health and fitness goals, I'm going to give you some basic tools you can start using today to begin making...
I'm telling you right now, you are going to look at the ingredients in this recipe and think, That's it... Kat's gone off the deep end.
But I swear to you, these brownies are delicious, fudge-y, soft, and decadent. You would never think they were actually healthy for you.
Don't believe me? Give them a shot!
Sugar cravings. The two words that can ignite fear in the fiercest of dieters, the fitness warriors, the health fanatics.
Sugar cravings. The destroyer of weight loss goals, the seemingly insurmountable desire for sweetness, the ever present frustration and saboteur of all things healthy.
Sugar cravings. Are they possible to truly beat? Or will we face this foe forever?
Let's find out...
I'm sure you've heard the study that explains how sugar is just as, if not more addictive than cocaine. Which means the battle to...
If you follow me on Instagram, you may recognize this video about the heavy metal detox smoothie I just discovered from Medical Medium, Anthony William.
But I wanted to come on the blog today and expand a bit on the importance of detoxing, specifically from heavy metals.
5 Reasons to Detox from Heavy Metals
1. Viruses and bacteria feed on heavy metals.
I don't think I need to explain why this is bad. We want to support our body in fighting these unwanted invaders, not feed them a gourmet meal.
2. They put a huge burden on...
"I always have this poochy belly..."
"I hate my thick thighs..."
"By butt is too big..."
"I wish my arms looked more defined..."
We all have that one area of our body that drives us nuts and, of course, it always seems like the most stubborn body part to tone, tighten, or taunt into submission.
Why? Why is there such a thing as a "trouble zone?" And is there anything to be done about it?
Well, while there are a million DVD's and workout programs out there titled things like Chiseled Abs, Thigh Slimmer, and Burn Off That...
