If you’ve done some research on tracking your macros (or “iifym”) then you’ve most likely come across the terms cutting, bulking, and reverse dieting.

These days I feel like every celebrity is endorsing some kind of “magical supplement”. Whether it is a detox tea, fat burning pill, appetite suppressant, etc, there seems to be a supplement to cure almost any problem. Want to lose weight? Take a supplement. Want to build muscle?

However, sometimes supplements can be extremely helpful. So in order to save you time and money, I thought I would compile a list of the supplementsRead More →

If you’re just starting out in your weight loss journey, it can be extremely overwhelming to think about all of the changes you “should” make. Honestly the reason most people are unsuccessful is because they think they need to overhaul their entire diet at once. They think they need to “eat clean” for all 3 meals, cut out all snacks, and exercise 5-7x a week all at once. Of course that’s overwhelming!! You’d maybe stick with it for a few weeks, but then it would get too challenging and you’d give up completely. So let me tell you a little secret…you don’t need to make all ofRead More →
