March is National Nutrition Month. As a personal trainer and human being, nutrition plays an extremely important role in my personal and professional life. But OMG there is a lot of information out there and it can be complex, confusing and contradictory. And I don't know about you, but I feel like there are 1000s of individuals out there trying to sell me the secrets of what I need to eat as an over-45-year-old woman. I need to fast, I need to eat every hour. I need to go Keto, Mediterranean, Paleo, plant-based or Adkins. I need to only eat this or never eat that. IT'S A LOT!
Personally, I need practicality. I need balance and moderation. I need flexibility. I want to eat what makes my body feel good. I want to eat in a way that keeps me healthy and fuels my goals. So after my 47+ years of real-life eating, 25+ years of worrying about what I eat, 1+ year of research and focused practice, I became a NASM Certified Nutrition Coach.
