Nutrition Conference Fun!

Hi all!

This week I'm away in Atlanta, Georgia for the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE)!! It's been a ton of fun so far! I met Top Chef alumns Fabio and Hugh Acheson, WON an iPad from The Georgia Peach Council and have sat through really great seminars.

My biggest take home message so far is pretty eye opening. I'm realizing how much I got away from personalized dietary goals. I started trying to do a "one size fits all" approach because I was overwhelmed. I was overwhelmed with customers wanting "meal plans"; where I tell them what to eat and at what time. Those are VERY time consuming. And I actually have never enjoyed doing just that. I feel like a meal plan is only helpful while I'm giving you it. A meal plan the first week is helpful for SURE, but what happens after? That's the missing piece that I need to start offering to you, my clients and customers.

What will it look like? It will be a specific goal sheets that lists your grams of carbohydrates, proteins and fats that you need to hit during the day. This is called "flexible" dieting. Like I learned today, there is no free overeating. Whether it's overeating carbohydrates or fats, your body will gain weight. Stay tuned for more info on how to apply.

Here are some pics from my trip so far!


How I WON the iPad. Gotta Love Social Media :)


Obsessed with this blender. Need it!!
Have a great week!
