“This video had such a profound effect on my mentality about food. I’ve been following your workouts for a year and enrolled in your hurt foot coaching program. I have benefitted so much from your coaching and optimism. I’ve also been vegan for a few years, but lately have been going more for the processed foods. This is a good reminder of WHY i did it all in the first place; to feel good! I also love that you’re speaking out against the extreme diet obsession this world has. I am officially going to be going pegan! Or at least more flexible and open ❤” – Kelly R, Youtube subscriber.
Because we want to feed ourselves correctly and build strong, healthy bodies that function as well as they look, we keep searching for the “right” answers. But in the end, many of us wind up more confused than ever and plagued by “analysis paralysis”—the feeling of powerlessness that comes from hearing so many conflicting messages about what (and how) we should or shouldn’t eat.
It’s easy to get so caught up in trying to eat “right” that we stop eating in a way that’s right for us. Your body is constantly providing feedback. But, are you listening?
This is the result of nutrition insanity, and it’s something many people with an interest in health and nutrition, have experienced. Even after all our research and experimentation, we are still left wondering, “What the heck should we eat, and how should we eat it?”
It’s time to drop the extremes.

So back to your question, “whats the right diet for you?” Here’s my best answer:
There is no one size fits all or perfect diet/fitness plan. EveryBODY’s needs are different and will change over time with age, lifestyle, stress, hormones, environment, ability, etc.
Eating healthy a constant process of learning your unique needs and changing with them over time. Of practicing the art of LISTENING to your body and nourishing yourself what YOU need to feel your very best. And that is the hard part! Everybody wants an easy answer – a simple program to follow, a quick fix. But it doesn’t work like that. There is no program out there that can tell you what you need or do your self-discovery work. You have the great opportunity (and privilege!) of learning your needs and choosing them every day. It’s a never ending journey and isn’t that the beauty in it all?
My health and fitness story has had many chapters and I continue to write a new one. I want to encourage you to keep writing yours! Never stop exploring. Keep an open mind. Be open to learning and changing with time. Keep being honest with yourself. Maybe in one stage of your life, your body feels better eating more carbohydrates or likes more cardio. Maybe in another stage in your life your body likes more strength or more rest. Maybe one chapter of your life you decide to incorporate animal protein and or eat more healthy fats. There are so many different ways to explore feeling good in your body and within yourself. I will help you do this in my Strong Body online course.
