A lot of new clients come to me wanting/hoping/expecting to be told exactly what to eat so they can feel better. They want a plan, a guide, or a list of good foods vs. bad foods so that constant diet confusion can finally be over.
You’ve exchanged your caramel macchiato and chocolate chip cookie for a matcha tea and an apple. You’re doing everything “right” and you’re eating so many veggies you feel almost rabbit-like. So…why don’t you feel great?
