Counting Calories Doesn't Work

Counting Calories Doesn't Work.


I know you've done it, haven't we all? You might be in the cycle right now! You want to lose weight, feel better, "get fit." So you restrict. You cut out dessert. You limit fat. You don't eat bacon. You count macros, go keto, or implement one of the multitude of fad diets out there. 

And you fail. You fail to get the result you want. Or you get the result. And then a few months later, you're back to where you started.


When you think of restricting, diet, or calorie counting. What comes to mind? For me, I think "YUCK!" And then my mind would race to all the wonderful foods that I love, that I wouldn't be able to have!

Thats the problem with counting calories and diets. They are not fun. they are not pleasant. When something isn't enjoyable, it's not sustainable. When you have to limit yourself so much, every single day, one day you just can't do it anymore!


The key to weight loss is finding

what is sustainable. Not fad diets. 


I think I dieted briefly in college. Maybe for 5 months. I ate as little as possible. Reflecting back on it now you know what is so insane? Now that I eat clean and follow my Eat Smart System I probably eat 3 times as many calories as I did back then and am the same weight I was when I was restricting so heavily!

How can this be?

There are many reasons.

1. When you deprive your body, it wants to hold onto fat, and your metabolism decreases.

2. I wasn't eating clean food, which decreases your body's ability to work efficiently.

Remember, if you're calorie counting, and cutting out foods, you are focusing on the wrong things.


If you want sustainable health you have to change how you look at food.

Calorie counting won't do it

Cutting fat won't do it.

Cutting dessert won't do it.

What will?

A sustainable way of eating and thinking about food that doesn't require you to cut out your favorite foods. 

I call this Eating Smart. Around here eating smart = real food, clean food, no lab created food.

Your body knows what to do. You just have to get out of its way. We are born with bodies that innately know how to regulate weight. Anything that veers off of that is a result of what we are putting in our bodies.


Feed your body what it wants and your body will heal in many ways- health and weight.

The Eat Smart System makes it simple.

From personalized grocery lists with clean product swaps, to easy at home meals and simple ways to eat clean at your favorite restaurants. You can achieve total food wellness, and I want to help you achieve that!

I changed my life by changing what I ate. For years I struggled with fatigue, joint pain, heart palpitations, acid reflux, and this list goes on...

Doctors either recommended medications, or they told me they had no idea what was causing my complaints.

Little by little, I became fed up with the "system." Little by little I decided it didn't have to be this way, I was young, I exercised, I should not have these health problems. I began to do research of my own, learning slowly but surely the changes I could make to get some relief. And eventually I came to what is now my Eat Smart System, and had my own REAL results.

It was a long journey for me, and now I want to share it all with YOU! If you are struggling with stubborn weight, fatigue, or just feeling lousy, Eat Smart can help! Eat Smart helps you find real, clean food products, healthy swaps for your favorites (like Doritos and oreos!) and provides recipes using REAL ingredients.

The best part? There is NO cutting out your favorite foods. Love pizza? You CAN have it and feel WELL. Love cake, yep, there are clean swaps and recipes for that too!
