Hi, I’m Kylie!
I grew up in the South where food is everything–food is love, comfort, and tradition. It took many years for me to realize that above all else, food is health. What we put in our bodies directly affects our health more than any other thing we do in our daily lives.
Like most young girls, I struggled with my body image and went on every fad diet out there: from cabbage soup to no fat, no carbs, severe calorie restriction – whatever was out there, I did it! It wasn’t until I STOPPED dieting that I found my ideal weight and became confident with my body.
Bottom line: traditional “diets” don’t work. They involve deprivation, feelings of hunger, and worst of all, judgment, when you inevitably fall off the wagon.
Stop torturing yourself and start making Joyful changes that fuel the life that you were meant to have. Learn how to make choices that will enhance your health and your entire life!
Even after realizing that real food (aka non-processed, chemical, and artificial ingredient-laden) helped me drop pounds without even trying, I experienced digestive issues that took my nutritional journey even deeper. I have worked with holistic doctors to overcome my own digestive health issues and would love to help you do the same.
What I have learned from these doctors is that most illness starts or is related to the gut – that is, your stomach and intestines. Most of us have digestive issues whether we realize it or not, such as feeling bloated or gassy, occasional constipation or diarrhea, heartburn, and indigestion.
Americans spend millions annually on prescription and over-the-counter meds to put a Band-Aid over their symptoms, rather tackle the root cause of their suffering. Can you guess what the #1 source of these problems are? FOOD!
Does that mean you have to spend your life eating lettuce and celery? Absolutely not! The key is learning about what foods are triggers for your body and avoiding them until they are ready be to reintroduced into your diet. Sound complicated? Well, it’s not really, as long as you have support and guidance along the way.
I love working with people to help them attain their optimum health. No matter what you choose to eat, there should be Joy involved.
A healthy lifestyle isn’t about deprivation, but about feeling your best and living life to it’s fullest potential.
Get out of your junk food rut and choose a more Joyful life!
