They are frustrated that their weight isn’t changing; for some of these women, their weight has actually been increasing since they dropped their food intake and started working out more. Many of these women are also eating a very low-carbohydrate diet with the goal of losing weight quickly for a quick fix.
We’ve been trained to believe that the body is a machine, and we can input and output our calories in a way that will cause weight loss, which is true calorie deficit is the only way to lose fat, but there are safe levels and unsafe low levels of calories. So it’s understandable why these clients would expect to see weight loss from a significant caloric deficit like that. But the fact...

3 I would not have done any fad diets. The first thing you want to do is take out carbs. Keto wasn't like super popular whenever I lost my weight, but low carb was, so I was restricting all my fun...
So today I want to give you some tips on how to get your kids to eat a little bit healthier, and teach them why we do the things that we do.
So the first thing is protein, we all know that we struggle to get our protein in. Most of our diets are high in fats and carbs, which is okay to have those foods. It's okay to eat fats and carbs. But we want to get enough protein in, we want to have, lean strong muscles. We want to have strong bones and getting that protein in is really going to help that so we want to teach our kids about protein, teach them what foods have protein.
So how do we do this? Instead of giving them the option of chicken or french fries, let's give them the option of grilled chicken or chicken nuggets and not give them an option to not eat protein. So make sure there are two different kinds of proteins, it's okay for them to have the french fries. So if your child picks the chicken nuggets and french fries, that's totally great. So we're...
