  1. When diets have expiration dates, so do the results. Putting an expiration date on your diet sets you up to fail!
  2. The number on the scale is greatly affected by your gut. An imbalance in your gut microbiome can lead to weight and health issues.  
  3. High-intensity interval training is the most efficient type of workout. HIIT can be done with or without weights, at home or in the gym, plus it’s fun, fast, and effective!
