I actually love this excuse as there is nothing more fun (to me) than sharing all of the healthy options that are available to you! After we do the Kitchen Cleanse in Step #2, we tackle what to replace it with in Step #4 Healthy Food Swap. Then you take what you've learned in Step #3 Grocery Store Guidance and go to the store with confidence and healthy conviction. In my 8 Step Nutrition Program, we discuss how to read food labels, review the best areas of the store to target, how to prepare before leaving, and provide you with a list of healthy whole foods to find. So you can conquer that excuse like a boss when you head out to the grocery store and take ownership of your health.

After years of ingesting copious amounts of CRAP, I finally changed my diet and eating habits. It started with reading books on farming, nutrition and health. I stopped pouring a bottle of salad dressing on my salads and learned how to eat a wide variety of foods. Stop making excuses and start creating healthy habits.
When you have a healthy relationship with food, it is a balance of moderation and variation, not deprivation. It's about getting in touch with your body and hunger signals in order to feed your appetite not your emotions.
