Nutrition Isn’t All About Numbers

***This was recently sent out as a newsletter to my subscribers, but I felt that it was worth sharing with more people*** You may hear me talk a lot about calories in, calories out, macros, grams, blah blah blah… Truth is, that stuff does matter.

Help Isn’t For Losers

So many people try to go at it alone. Too prideful, too embarrassed, or even too thick-skulled to reach out for help – with anything. Thing is, we are meant to help each other.
