I haven’t always been a nutrition & weight loss coach.
In fact, just last year—and 11 years before that!—I was a high school English teacher.
I planned to teach themes, commas, and essay structure forever, but you know how life goes. It has a crazy way of steering you in different directions!
Allow me to explain…
In my early 20s, I was always 15-20 pounds overweight, hungry (more like *hangry*), fatigued, and bloated.
And I always felt just “meh”—never awesome.
Since I was eating what I thought were healthy foods and working out 6-7x/week, I chalked up my symptoms to “aging.”
Sometimes I’d lose a few pounds and feel a bit better, but, no matter how much weight I lost or how many tactics I tried, I always put the lbs back on and returned to feeling hangry, fatigued, bloated, and “meh.”
One fateful day, my TV didn’t work on a cross-country flight. Fortunately, my husband had an extra book on hand!
The book was Fitness Confidential by Vinnie Tortorich.
Vinnie is a celebrity trainer and health guru. After a scary bout with cancer, he decided to write Fitness Confidential and start a podcast to spread his message to the masses: “No sugars, no grains.” (Or, as he abbreviates it, “NSNG.”)
To be honest, I thought Vinnie’s idea of cutting out sugar and grains was crazy…but I was bored! I read the book cover to cover in 5 hours.
Each page, my curiosity piqued.
As the plane touched down, I told my husband I was gonna try NSNG—cause what did I have to lose??
After about 3 months, I’d lost 20 pounds, my hanger had completely disappeared, I had more energy than ever, and bloat was a thing of my past.
After just 3 months, I. FINALLY. FELT. AWESOME.
The best part? My results have lasted! At age 35, I feel 10x better than I did at 25.
I started to question my previous assumptions about nutrition & health, reading and soaking up as much info as I could from other books, medical journals, and podcasts.
Wanting to learn even more, I enrolled in the Institute of Transformational Nutrition. Less than a year after graduating, I quit my teaching job to pursue my new passion: nutrition & weight loss coaching!
