“Okay Emily so you said that any ‘diet’ can work? That there is no one best diet? So how do I actually find the right diet for me? Where do I start? HOW do I start?”

Just start.

30 day clean eating challenge?
10 minutes fat blaster?

...Etc etc etc?

While these sound awesome in theory (come on, admit it), we all know deep down that these “too good to be true” fads are just that. Even though we get sucked in with flashy advertisements and social media claims, we want to believe it but we know the truth...

The truth about nutrition…

Are you ready for it...

The truth is…

...nutrition matters.  

I have been involved in sports and fitness at a high level for my entire life and never really paid attention to my eating habits. I always considered myself a healthy eater, I never ate many processed foods, and I got by just fine.
