How to: Eat HEALTHY without DEPRIVATION.

We seriously have ALL BEEN THERE. If anyone reading this has ever NOT felt totally deprived when trying to live a healthier lifestyle, than I applaud you! I seriously cannot believe it took me SO LONG to learn the following concepts, but once I grasped them and understood WHY, the HOW became so much clearer. In a nutshell, I am someone who really cannot deprive myself of the things I want. If I feel I am following some sort of "set of rules" I will find myself spiraling down the rabbit hole of no return. I think this stems from my career in dance where the goal was always to stay "aesthetically pleasing" no matter what the cost. I followed so many rules about food so I wouldn't gain any weight that when my performing career was over, things got a little wild. I strive to never use the word diet.

I was just a girl miserable in my own skin. I would step on the scale and cringe. How did I let this happen? I hated going to the gym because I didn't know what to do there. I was embarrassed I let it get that far. I was my heaviest on my wedding day and even though I felt beautiful that day, I definitely didn't feel my best.  I became curious about these at home
