As a busy professional stress is definitely part of the week. In my opinion it is not about finding a life that has no stress... it is all about understanding stress management and what that means for you. Stress management is extremely important for the busy professional as it determines mood, productivity, energy and confidence.
Did you know stress management can begin with your food choices? Once you have the knowledge on WHAT you should be choosing this will change your outlook on so many meals! Certain food can increase certain chemicals in the body to promote stress management:
- Boost levels of serotonin (calming brain chemical)
- Decrease levels of cortisol and adrenaline (your stress hormones)
Here are my top choices for stress management food choices for the busy professional:
1. Whole grains such as RICE, QUINOA and OATMEAL. Did you know that all carbohydrates tell the...
There is nothing more frustrating than when your healthy intentions stop showing the progress you want to see - specifically weight loss plateauing.
Weight loss plateaus are extremely common - no, they are part of every health journey out there. It is not a bad thing - it is your body telling you that something needs to change, shift or be removed.
I have come up with the top 3 reasons why you may experience weight loss plateaus - from all of my clients who are busy professionals / entrepreneurs I have noticed many of the same occurrences. Once cleared up or shifted the body continues to transform in a healthy manner.
1. You are not eating enough - when moving towards more nutrient dense choices (whole fruits, veggies, nuts, proteins etc.) you will find the overall calories consumed in a day is naturally...
Weight Loss Without Dieting:
The thing I hate most about the wellness industry is the millions of products, programs and people who express the way to lose weight is through dieting. The promise of losing a ton of weight in a short amount of time - sometimes expressing that it can be done while eating junk food and not lifting a finger!
It's terrible to see people all over the world (including myself at one point) fall for these quick fixes, just to be right back where we started a few months down the road. Obviously the promise of easy, quick weight loss is attractive - but it is not sustainable or the reality. Making the wellness industry a trillion dollar industry.
Weight loss without dieting - now that is how we should all think. See, the other problem with diets is we never get to the root of the issue. Why are we struggling with our weight in the first place. Is it even necessary to focus on weight loss or are we being driven by society thoughts. I...
Here's the thing:
Snacks can make or break your day. They have the ability from preventing or cause sugar or energy crashes throughout the day, support productivity or prolong a days work. So I am introducing: Easy Snacks for the Busy Professional
Did you know that the top 3 snacks at the busy professional's office are
3. Cheese (and not the great kinds)
Snacks that are calorie dense, high sugars or high carbs - all foods that will give you a BURST of energy then a crash shortly after. Most of the time we are looking for the same type of snack an hour later and the cycle continues.
As a busy professional, you want to be productive at work. You want to have enough energy to go in and out of meetings, to be present when talking to colleagues and to have the confidence that each day you are giving your best.
These easy to execute snacks will support your body's energy so that you will obtain that productivity and confidence...
There is nothing better than a warm cup of hot cocoa on a winter day – especially leading up to the holidays! While this beverage can be enjoyed while gift shopping, on long wintery walks or just sitting by the fire it also packs a serious calorie and sugar punch. The following are some of the most popular hot chocolate beverages that are consumed this time of year:
Tim Horton’s Medium Hot Chocolate: 300 calories with 49 grams sugar (that’s over 12 teaspoons!)
Starbucks Grande Peppermint Hot Chocolate: 420 calories with 61 grams sugar (that’s over 15 teaspoons!)
McDonalds Deluxe Medium Hot Chocolate: 400 calories with 55 grams sugar (that’s over 13 teaspoons!)
Nestle Hot Chocolate Mix with Milk: 325 calories with 21 grams sugar (that’s over 5 teaspoons!)
Too much sugar consumption ultimately means too much energy for your body to handle. The excess, unused energy will be stored as fat for “later”....
