  The Institute for the Psychology of Eating have named my blog one of their Best 100 Health Coach Blogs of 2015. I’m thrilled about this honor, and congratulations to my team for their hard work in helping me build this blog. If you’re not familiar with them, The Institute for the Psychology of Eating has an outstanding mission, which is to change the way we understand food, our bodies, and our health. They provide support and information for all dietary approaches, but one of their primary functions is educating health professionals about how to guide individuals through the most common and most compelling eating challenges; from body image to digestion, yo-yo dieting, and more. I’m in great company on this list of prestigious websites. Here are a few of my favorites. Elizabeth Rider Food Coach NYC Alexandra Jamieson Health Coach Quinn You’ll love this collection of blogs.

The Dirty Dozen Food Additives

  Part of the reason I wrote Discover Your Nutritional Style is because I believe that most of the physical, and emotional issues that people face today can be improved or eliminated by making changes to their diet. In my book, I call out the “Bad Boys” of nutrition, and that includes all processed foods. I’ve seen, first hand, the enormous difference that eliminating processed foods can make. At the very least, you owe it to yourself to learn what’s really in those foods, so that you can make an informed decision. It is guaranteed to surprise you. That’s why I love sharing the Environmental Working Group (EWG). They’re a well researched source of information about what’s really in our foods, cosmetics, cleaning products, sunscreen, and more. The EWG website is full of user-friendly information that’s easy to find, and understand. Best-known for their Dirty Dozen guide to produce, highlighting produce infected with chemicals and pesticides, the EWG has become a wonderful tool for living a clean and healthy lifestyle. I’ve referred to their informative guides over and over throughout the years, and you’ll find them in my book, as well. Now, the EWG has come to our rescue again,…

Vermont: Leading the way in GMO labeling

April 23, 2014 was a momentous day for America’s food system. Please read the attached letter from Jeffrey Smith, long time advocate for GMO labeling and awareness, opponent to Genetically Modified Foods, and Founder of the Institute for Responsible Technology.  Dear Holli, Help me celebrate two of Vermont’s heroes who were instrumental in passing the nation’s first unrestricted mandatory labeling bill for GMOs. Senator David Zuckerman and Representative Carolyn Partridge describe the amazing efforts, which spanned more than a decade, resulting in this unprecedented, game-changing new law. They also describe what you can do to help their state with the expected legal challenge by big biotech and/or the Grocery Manufacturers Association. Here’s the quick facts: 1. Starting July 1, 2016, products sold in Vermont that contain more than 0.9% GMO content contamination will require a statement on the label indicating that genetic engineering was used. 2. Products that contain GMOs and are labeled can NOT also label their products as “natural.” 3. The bill does not apply to labels for milk, eggs, and meat from animals fed GMOs. 4. Unlike the bills passed in Connecticut and Maine, Vermont’s bill does not require other states to pass similar legislation before it…

Book Review: The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet

Mark Hyman, MD has a new book called The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet. It’s already on the best seller list, and I’m excited to share why. Dr. Hyman invited me to be part of a beta group to test the 10 Day Detox Diet. As a life long researcher in the field of nutrition, that was an offer I couldn’t refuse, so a client of mine and I joined in. The book takes you through a well balanced, holistic approach to detoxification, and Dr. Hyman talks about toxicity in a easy to understand way. He offers clear cut ways to change your lifestyle, and also recommends specific herbs and supplements. Hyman is a western medical doctor with a strong holistic lean; that’s why I love this book. When it’s time for the cleanse, Hyman asks you to remove certain food groups; including the usual suspects, like dairy and gluten, but the big piece of the puzzle here is that Hyman wages war on sugar. And that makes all the difference. Hyman asks you to remove starches in all their forms, and explains the sugar connection to obesity, diabetes and heart disease. He leaves the healthy fats in, so…
