The email was titled "It's Not Just About Weight Loss..." and I ended the email with:
The bottom line: shift your focus, and youâ€™ll get what you want.
I mean that with my whole heart. Weight loss isn't about counting calories, restrictive eating, punishing exercise, hating yourself, or FEELING LIKE A FAILURE.
It's about nourishing and healing yourself, eating amazing, healthful, robust food, UNDERSTANDING how your body works (whether you're a thyroid patient, an athlete, or a post-partum mom), and enjoying the process.
I thought it would be "just another calories-matter, cut-the-carbs, get-skinny" so-called "Paleo" program.
But when I saw the speaker lineup and realized that the program was about much more than that - in fact, it was about achieving health FIRST (scroll down for details on sessions) - I jumped at the chance.
I wanted to tell MY story, and be involved in helping others understand that HEALTH COMES FIRST.
(More honesty: while I can't endorse every single session, I DO believe that the content is absolutely incredible and second to none. You WILL find something you need. Otherwise, I wouldn't have signed on. DON'T BE PUT OFF BY THE SLEEK WEIGHT-LOSSY ADVERTISING. There's much more here than meets the eye - scroll down for details.)
(And read this for my guarantee on what I choose to promote and why.)
This resource is FREE when you watch the sessions within 48 hours of them going LIVE beginning October 21 (register here to get all the details and be notified before the sessions begin so you don't forget!)
(If you miss any of the live sessions, you can buy the whole shebang later if you like).
My session is entitled "How to eat for health AND beauty" and it airs on Day 3, between October 25 & 26. (Again, register here to get the full live schedule and learn more.)
