Thanksgiving Dinner!

Here’s an early wish of “Happy Thanksgiving” to you! Many of my clients often ask for strategies they can utilize to successfully navigate holiday meals without jeopardizing their health goals. Here’s a few…   Just don’t worry about it. Simply have a big feast and don’t overthink it. Humans are designed around the cyclic use of many “f” words (feasting,…
