If there’s one thing I’m hearing amongst my clients it’s that food is a struggle and total honesty, it’s something I battle with every day too.
I want to remind you that if you’re okay with eating a little more right now, loosening up on the food rules, and embracing a little weight gain that’s totally fine too. We all cope differently, you do you.
But, I know for me, when my nutrition is on track I feel better overall mentally and that is really what matters right now.

1️⃣ Planning out my day ahead and factoring in snacks, especially nighttime snacks. I know I forever want to snack at night so instead of fighting it, I embrace it. I make it fit within my daily needs and go into the day with a plan so I know I can make it work.
2️⃣ Structure & Timing. Intermittent fasting works for me so I fast in the morning as a way to limit my opportunities to fall off track and stay within my daily goals. Experiment with what works best for you. I also stick to a consistent schedule and structure similar to what I follow when I’m not staying home.
3️⃣Portion Control and Flexible Dieting. If there’s something I’m really craving I have it but make it fit within my day, even if it’s not the cleanest or healthiest option. I also look for healthier swaps that actually taste good but fit within my daily portion and calorie goals.
𝘚𝘰𝘮𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘮𝘺 𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘪𝘱𝘴: ALL the high volume foods (veggies, oatmeal, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, etc.. Lots of water, tea, & coffee, staying active & busy, and full honesty sugar free gum.
