Why can’t you keep your weight off? — The 8 Essential Rules for Weight Maintenance

Recidivism among dieters has prompted major revisions in treatment methodology as researchers discover the significant contributions of genetics, psychology, and environmental factors to eating behavior. More than 85% of Americans have dieted during their lifetimes, yet the majority of diets offer little flexibility to accommodate the biopsychosocial components of the dieter’s life. Weight regain is […]

Starving, Stressed, and Stockpiling

We’re involved in a crisis. It’s epic. It’s huge. Just like we are. We’re starving. Yet we’re fat. Ironic. We’re suffering from a severe deficiency. As much as we eat, and we’re lacking nourishment. Our bodies are deprived and I argue it’s because we’ve lost our minds. Literally. When I hear “Kori, I’m hungry…all the […]

How’s Your Metabolism?

This past Tuesday, Dr. Joe gave a workshop on metabolic positioning. The goal was to explain how we can set ourselves up in a healthy, physiologically sound, science-based way for maximum fat loss. He explained to our viewers and attendees how the body utilizes carbohydrates and described the 3-stage process of energy usage for sustaining […]

D to the I to an E to a T!

In an effort to expand my limited ‘home-girl’ vocabulary (recall my recent post regarding “hot mess” and “do me a solid”) I’m starting this post with a WHOOP WHOOP, Give me a D to the I to an E to a T! Are we square? (I’m trying- be patient with me please). Maybe that’s enough […]

A Gulp and some Spirit– You Ready?

I can’t count how many times I’ve heard, “But Kori, I know what to do” or “Kori, I really should know how to do this on my own” or “Kori, I have the information– I just can’t “do” it.” And to each of these comments, I usually nod, smile, and respond with a “Yep,” a […]

Think and you shall become…

Scientists used to believe that we were born as blank slates. As brand new babies we had nothing to guide us until we started creating meaning from our environments and forming neural connections from our surroundings and the people and models in our lives. We know far more about neuroscience now, and from conception, the […]

Busting Barriers! Myth #4: To burn the most fat do long-duration, lower intensity cardio.

If you’re like me, a good lower intensity, longer cardio session is just what you need sometimes to aid in recovery after a seriously intense training session. When I have trouble getting off the toilet from a leg workout I did 1-2 days prior, I know that a sprint session is not in my best […]

Busting Barriers: Myth #3- It’s more expensive to eat healthy!

BUSTED: Not quite. Go to any fast food restaurant and do an experiment. To feed a family of four, you’re likely getting a value meal or a few items each, right? A New York Times writer recently did some research of his own and found that such an order would amount to approximately $28. That’s […]

Imperfectly Perfect

I have clients all over the world. Each one interacts with me differently; has a unique sense of humor (or none at all); uses a myriad of terms to describe the same concept; smiles through their emailed words crookedly, with teeth, without, with crinkling eyes, and with bold and challenging “Are you getting what I’m […]

Busting Barriers! Myth #2: Only eat when you’re really hungry.

BUSTED: Skipping meals and waiting until you’re famished means you’re dipping into dangerous territory. Your blood sugar drops to levels which can lead to bingeing and mindless eating. Sure, you’ll take in less calories if you skip a meal or wait longer between, however, if you’re overeating because you got too hungry, it’s a wash! […]
