My ebook, ‘Simple Is The Cure‘ is alive! You can buy it over here.
If you’ve been following my blog for the past couple of months, you know that I’ve been working on this project since September, after attending Tribe Conference.
I’m proud to announce that the book is finally here. As I said, it’s called ‘Simple Is The Cure: Stop Stressing, Fight For Your Health, & Reclaim Your Life’.
This ebook is really more like a training course because it centers around making one simple change everyday for 30 days. At the end of the 30 day journey you’re left with a totally new set of tools that will give you better health, more time, money saved, and less overwhelm.
I’ve worked really hard to make each day super easy to read, no more than 2 pages long, with an action step at the end of each day. In the back of the book you can find resources and recipes to guide you on your wellness journey.
I want to give you a peek inside my ebook so you can see what it would be like to get a dose of expert health coaching advice every day. Below is Day 4, A New Way To Look At Meals. Here, I walk you through making a huge paradigm shift that will change the way you look at eating forever.

04. A NEW WAY TO LOOK AT MEALS
Intermittent Fasting & Learning to Live on Less
Growing up, you were probably taught that eating 3 meals a day was just how things were done; that dinner was in the evening.
In the west, at least, dinner is considered the main meal of the day. It’s where we put the most effort and where we spend the most time with others.
SUPPLEMENTAL = SUPPER
Have you ever heard your grandma say the word supper? Ever wonder why she calls it that?
Supper is actually shorthand for supplemental. By traditional standards, supper was always meant to be a supplemental meal; something small that we could eat to tide us over until bedtime.
PRINCE, KING, PAUPER
Our grandmas are wise because in eating this way, having our last meal be more supplemental, we actually naturally balance blood sugar, and therefore our mood and weight.
One of the things I teach my clients as a way to remember our meals sizes is by using the phrase “Prince for breakfast, King for lunch, and Pauper for dinner”.
You want to focus on having your breakfast be fulfilling; rich in protein. While your lunch should be the biggest meal of the day.
Your supper would be light, like soup or something the size of an appetizer.
LOSE WEIGHT EFFORTLESSLY
Eating these 3 meals with little to no snacking in between will do something totally radical to your body.
Your body will learn to balance it’s blood sugar levels and use stored fat as fuel in between meals.
Because you’re not snacking throughout the day, you aren’t constantly having highs and lows.
This balances your mood.
And because you’re not eating late at night, you give your body plenty of time to digest and then you feel better because you’ve absorbed all the nutrients possible. When you wake up, you poop better because you’ve digested better. When it’s time for breakfast, you notice a real hunger that you never had while eating late.
It all works in perfect harmony.
MAKE MEALTIME MEANINGFUL
- Enjoy dinner with friends
- Rather than scarfing down a quick bite, take some time to really savor your food.
- Sit down & enjoy yourself. Make mealtime an actual event, not just a passing thing that must be done.
- People tend to zone out while eating in front of a screen and end up eating more than they would if they had nothing interrupting mealtime.
How can you start to make your meals sizes and meal times more meaningful? Do you live to eat or eat to live?
Today, be mindful of meal times.
Set a reminder on your phone to eat. Try not to skip meals. If you’re a night eater, try finding a way to eat supper earlier and see how your body responds. Don’t worry too much about what you’re eating. Focus on the portion sizes and having a clearly defined breakfast, lunch, and supper.
