The Book Fit Intuition: Listen to Your Body and Never Diet Again is Out Now!

Updated: Jun 21, 2023

I am so excited to share with you today that my first book, Fit Intuition: Listen to Your Body and Never Diet Again, is officially launched. It is both available in paperback and eBook. Here is a link to more info and the Amazon link is here. And in this post, I want to share with you what it's about, because it's really for people that have tried diet after diet.

I know myself I had tried probably at least 100 different diets and none of them worked. In fact, I gained weight the more I was dieting. And I know that I'm not alone with that because I've worked with hundreds of people who have had similar experiences. Often, we know what we need to do. We know what we're supposed to do. We know what would work in theory, but that's not what works in reality. We know we're supposed to get plenty of sleep and eat our vegetables and eat plenty of protein and do squats and deadlifts and push-ups and all this stuff. But what about the days that you don't feel like it?

What about the days that you oversleep, or you binge ate yesterday, or you're just not feeling like yourself? There needs to be room for self-compassion. But also we can still push ourselves. Habit change and actually sticking to these behaviors is a lot easier said than done.

And constantly people would come to me as a trainer, I've been working in this industry since 2013, and people would come in and say, well, how do I actually follow through? How do I build consistency? And that's a huge question. It's not something I could answer in a session. And quite honestly, in the beginning of my career, I didn't have those answers. But I did study psychology both in school and in research labs and on my own. In this book, I was able to blend what I was learning in school, what I was learning in theory, with what I realized worked with real people in the real world, working with clients, and experimenting on myself.

The very things that make us lose weight in the short term with diets keep us out of touch with our body.

The book also talks about:

  • How to program your workouts

  • How to think about different macronutrients (protein, carbs and fat)

  • It answers the question of it you can still eat your favorite foods and see results: here's a hint you can

  • How to drop guilt and perfectionism

  • Food addiction

  • How to tap into your authentic motivation

  • How to change your beliefs around fitness and health

  • Tips for making changes stick

  • How to navigate social situations where maybe people are eating differently than how you want to eat

  • How to think about fat in different areas of the body, like belly fat

  • Genetics and comparison

  • Self-acceptance

  • Personality types and how they affect reaching our fitness goals

  • Why you can't force weight loss and what to do instead

  • Different habits you could think about changing and what order to think about implementing those

  • And more! (It's a long book but you can use it as a reference guide rather than reading it in one go, if that is your preference.)

I've worked on this for many years. I also want to say thank you to anyone that has been supportive of the project. Whether you've been a friend, just saying an encouraging word, my launch team, my editors and book team, and readers. I'm very excited to share this and excited to get the message out there. If you have any questions or feedback, thoughts, let me know in the comments below.

Also below is the video format of this blog post if you prefer to watch / listen as opposed to read. (I try to do this for every blog post.)
