What Is the Plural of Paradox?

  What is the plural of paradox?  I need to know, because there are so many of them in my fasting life. Fasted yet fueled. Hungry yet satisfied. Energetic yet calm. Shrinking yet expanding. I try to start the day with a 3-4 mile outdoor walk.  It’s a mild, damp morning and the snow is

Unbreak Me

For years, I wanted to be an intuitive eater.  All the “feels” around the philosophy and the movement were right for me.  Working with your body.  Eating when you are hungry.  Eating the food your body asks for.  Stopping when full.  Loving your body for giving you a home to live from. Except I was ALWAYS

Keep Your Eyes On Your Own…

In Gin Stephens’ Facebook group that supports Delay, Don’t Deny, she uses the expression “Keep your eyes on your own plate.” It is a playful reference to her history as an elementary school teacher, and a reminder that we are all adults, capable of making informed decisions about the kind of food we want to eat

Push, Don’t Shove

I was thinking during class this morning about the parallels between yoga and intermittent fasting.  Both have increased in popularity, so both have industries that have cropped up touting products to buy.  Both are a trending hashtag.  When you strip all the trappings away, both are based on ancient, timeless wisdom. In full disclosure, I’m

Enter the Cave

I saw my brother today, and he mentioned the philosopher Joseph Campbell.  While I can’t claim to be as well-read as my brother, Campbell’s work is “on the list”, and  I’m familiar with this famous quote about the cave & the treasure. I love the quote as it applies to my fasting journey.  During the years

Unlearn Body Fear

In my new business, I am using the tagline, Trust Your Body, Honor Your Spirit, Enjoy Your Life.  My grandmother spent the last part of HER 95-year life imploring me to enjoy mine, and I’ve set out to do just that.  The journey started from trusting my body, and it has blossomed into far more.

Body Trust Is a Two-Way Street

  Trust Your Body is a part of my new tagline.  Living in a state of trust with your body allows you to make positive, intentional choices around fasting and feasting, and it lets the energy of your life be one of peace, not fear.  It’s an alignment with your body, a believing that if

The post below originally appeared on our then-brand-new blog at www.fastingfeastingfreedom.com in September 2018. In the nearly six months since, we published our motivational memoir Unbelievable Freedom to rave reviews, and I left my job in healthcare to focus on passion for intermittent fasting and what it can do in people’s lives.

Haters Gonna Hate, Misunderstanders Gonna….

Well, misunderstanders are clearly and consistently going to misunderstand. It’s inevitable. It’s what they do. The last thing I ever wanted to be accused of was being a diet pusher, and yet here I am. Back when I was floundering in terms of food, embedded in the struggle habit, ricocheting between extremes of eating, I
