FVY 014: Feeling FAB with Elyse Wagner

I first found out about Elyse on an online search on meal planning, and I found her blog “5 Good Reasons Why Meal Planning Doesn’t Work“, and I was smitten.  This girl gets it!  In the blog she plays out a conversation between a client and her client’s friend about weight loss:

“So…. Have you lost any weight,” asks the friend?

Linda (client): “Nope… but I’m not counting. I have gained A LOT however!”

Friend: “What do you mean you’ve gained – when you go to a nutritionist you’re supposed to lose!”

Linda: “Not the case – always. Elyse has taught me skills for life and that’s what I’ve gained. I’m able to make choices and decisions about my food and how I eat so I don’t binge anymore, eat emotionally or deny myself of food which often triggers me to overeat and ultimately gain weight.”

I’ll let you read the rest of the blog.  I immediately signed up for Elyse’s email list and a little while later reached out to have her on the podcast.  I highly recommend checking out her blog: My Kitchen Shrink.

  • Why she loves smoothies (plus some awesome recipes for you to try at home!)
