One of the most effective ways to improve your health is to build lean muscle mass. However, it can be difficult to find reliable information on how to increase scale weight and build muscle safely from a nutrition standpoint. There’s plenty of easily accessible fat loss information, yet it can be hard to find info on how to healthfully and safely gain weight and build muscle.

Is rapid weight loss worth sacrificing your muscle?

Chances are you’ve heard buzz words like “Ozempic” and “semaglutide” more times than you can count this past year. These wildly popular weight loss drugs have helped people shed a lot of pounds. But not all that weight is fat. Rapid weight loss, like that experienced when taking Ozempic and other glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist drugs, causes increased muscle loss alongside fat loss. […]

Muscle, menopause and glucose

The relationship between muscle, menopause and glucose are inextricably linked if you seek optimal health. A few weeks ago, we shared a post discussing the importance of muscle for metabolic health. Muscle — and, in particular, having more muscle — is linked to better insulin sensitivity and glucose utilization. The body also burns more calories at rest when it has a higher amount of muscle, making it easier to maintain a healthy body weight and also maintain bone density. […]

Food labels, explained

Our food system here in the United States is a complex topic, and even more so given that the cost of goods is increasing. What differentiates between an organic product and a conventional one? Or a “grass fed” piece of meat versus “grain fed?” And what’s this “pasture raised” stuff? […]

Healthy meal-prep recipes

As a nutritionist and personal trainer, this post shares some of my favorite healthy meal-prep recipes. One of the most common questions I receive from clients is, “What should I be eating?” And while the answer to that question is going to vary from person to person, prioritizing veggies, fruit, lean proteins, complex carbohydrates, and fiber is a great place to start.

Meal prep made easy(er)

It can be daunting to get organized with meal prep and planning. For all of us. Throw in additional family members and busy weeknights filled with activities, and it can be even more challenging to stay the course. Having support, a plan of action and a clear tie back to your goals and values can help to stay on track. The other night a friend (who is trained as a professional chef!) was telling me how she struggles to organize her family meals throughout the week, and she inspired me to share a few of my tips and tricks for keeping us on track with our goal of eating minimally processed, scratch-made meals (and not loose our minds). I originally wrote this post in 2018, but I’ve made some post-pandemic updates here throughout in April 2022. […]

Everything you need to know about collagen supplements

Collagen has become a popular supplement in recent years and in this post we’ll share everything you need to know about collagen supplements. If you peruse your local supermarket’s supplement aisle, it’s not uncommon to find collagen in a capsule, infused in a coffee creamer, as a standalone protein powder, or in a topical cream. Supplementing with collagen allegedly slows signs of aging skin, increases skin elasticity, and reduces joint pain. But does it actually work? […]
