You aren’t here simply to survive. You were born to THRIVE!
Our modern lifestyle is not aligned with our genes and biology. When we are able to bring our diet and lifestyle more into alignment with our biology by giving our brain/body what it needs we have a much greater potential to thrive! THRIVE, was created to give my clients real life practical tools and knowledge within a flexible framework to empower your choices on the daily and develop sustainable healthy relationships around food, fitness, rest and recovery.
My research skills helped me to mine the scientific literature in PubMed among many other databases distilling cutting edge information rooted-in-science to inform my approach. The deeper I dove the more it became clear to me just how much the conversation needs to change. Counting calories, weighing macros, and following fad-diets aren’t sustainable long-term and often create unhealthy relationships around food.
Eating, exercising, sleeping and using de-stress practises all have a significant impact on blood sugar regulation, and insulin sensitivity as well as hunger hormone regulation, and our gut-microbiota.
Your ideal body weight set point, and body composition goals are unique to you.
Think of THRIVE as the science based framework to lean on for your health and wellbeing, the 5 to thrive as the delicious nutrient dense ‘anti-diet,’ and the thrive toolbox to dip into whenever you need a tool, or two! It’s all about building healthy habits one brick at a time.
THRIVE gives you the tools and knowledge within a flexible framework to empower your choices on the daily to develop healthy sustainable lifestyle habits. We always prefer progress over perfection. We build a strong long-term foundation – brick by brick.
Imagine living a lifestyle free of food drama and fear of derailment. To be able to trust in your own ability to make the best choices for you that nurtures your brain and body’s symbiotic connection. The more you use the framework the more your brain and body feel in balance and are driven to THRIVE!
